Sweetness. I love the design but I don't love the price...but it would go so well with Omega Prime/God Fire Convoy. The God Sword would probably be cheaper than a Matrix Blade/Super God Sword these days, though.

$50???????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

nice but not worth the price
i'd rather spend that money on buying a transformer, a video game, or better still----dinner for the family.

honestly, some of these prices from 3rd party manufactures are just absolutely ridiculous.

nice but not worth it

$50 + shipping + taxes ------> that's almost $65-70. not to mention that some people get charged on duties when it's delivered to the house.

I like it, I just don't like that it's going to cost me more than my Nemesis Prime that's gonna hold it did. But I suppose it's worth it to give Shadow Commander some more armorments.

True but the same could be said of most accessory sets these days. Many figures that have 3rd party accessories are worth less than the accessories, hehe. But some of them are well worth it for me like the City Commander variations and the Aerial Team Appendage Kit.

I'm holding out for these to go on sale.

I like them, but $50 is just out of the range of sanity to me.

These are $15 items, maybe $20 TOPS.

Agreed-I might even pay thirty but the US vendors want 65-70 which is crazy talk.

Plus, I just measured and at 38cm, it's too tall for my shelving as things are displayed now.

This is a sale item pick-up for sure.

I'm very curious about the quality of the materials and construction. I can't wait for reviews of this product to be posted somewhere.

I really do not believe the cost is justified here.

I think that when this was announced and priced, it was at the height of 3rd party popularity and the makers of this set are really looking to cash in as th $60-80 price tag was where people seemed to be comfortable paying when they were really into something.

I think the makers on this were looking for carry-over hype.

It's too much, even considering I want a matrix blade for Omega Prime.

I would be all over this if it was at least $20 cheaper. As it is, hell no. I'll wait for a clearance, if it ever happens.

CP, you're a mod now? When did that happen? Maybe I wasn't paying attention. Congrats on your promotion! ;)

I think you've hit the nail right on the head. Given that the FP Superion kit is 45 and this isn't even in that league, 30-40 should have been the absolute top price. They would sell a bunch at that price.

This is like the only reason why I'm even considering it. Can Omega Prime even hold it?

I think Omega Prime should be able to hold it seeing as any of the City Commander sets can. I think the TAW-01 God Sword is close in scale to the Matrix Blade/Super God Sword. One thing I like about the TAW-01 is that it's a modular accessory that can do more than just serve as a crazy huge sword for display. It also looks to not have the floppy handle issue the Matrix Blade had.

well see, Omega Prime doesn't have a firm hand, he has a gundam closing hand. That might cause a problem. I don't wanna buy it for Omega Prime, and then find out he can't even hold it.

Oh, I thought you meant about the size of Omega Prime! Yeah, due to the articulated hands, Omega Prime may not be able to hold the God Sword well if it's too heavy.
