New PGPoA Exclusive: The Sword of Ages!

For millennia, one of the most honored and  feared weapons of humanity has been the sword. There have been many famous swords–ExcaliburDurandal, Anduril, the Power Sword, the Sword of Omens, the Master Sword–but The Sword of Ages is not one of these. It is the sword of the footman, the mercenary, the knight errant. A simple blade, functional, reliable, easily replicated…but to its owners, indispensable.

Designed by Poe Ghostal himself and produced by Spy Monkey Creations, the hilt is made from gold plastic and the blade is a separate silver piece. Intended for your 6″-7″ fantasy action figures, the Sword of Ages will look good with almost any figure. It can be carried by medieval knights, heroic barbarians, three-eyed interdimensional mercenaries, or any other figure you choose.

The Sword of Ages will be available at Poe Ghostal’s Points of Acquisition in late November, at a price of $7 per sword. The golden-hilted Sword will be exclusive to PoeGhostal.com, but Spy Monkey Creations will be offering alternative colorways some time after the Sword goes on sale (but not for at least a month or two). Feel free to post suggestions for other colorways in the comments.

Oh, and as for the contest–the big winner is Poester FakeEyes22. The only other correct guess was made by Paddy Fitz, who won the last contest himself (and was eligible to win this contest–the coin flip simply came down in FakeEyes22’s favor). FakeEyes22 will receive a free Sword of Ages once they start shipping.

  • Poe, that is very nice. I like it! Going to have to get some for my Eternian Guardsmen!

  • Cool! I'm impressed.

    I could definitely see this with Man-At-Arms, Adam, or even Randor. Although MAA has that cool mace, the sword included with him is more like a large dagger. Adam could use it, cuz hey, how come he's got He-Man's sword. Finally, I've not been a huge fan of Randor's sword. I know they tried to keep that iron cross theme going throughout his armor/staff/sword, but I think its kinda ugly.

    I think I would even use this with Skeletor, I know by the "story" he has half the power sword, but I kinda like him just using a generic blade, like he would be afraid to take his half out of Snake Mountain.

  • I this supposed to be reminiscent of the sword seen in the background when The Goddess bestows the techno-vest on "Oo-Lar"? I can't think of anything else.

  • I think it's great! I'm pretty excited and lucky.

    Good thing I read all the Poe reviews before committing to the line.

    A basic weapon with a economic price should be very appealling to folks. It should look great with everyone, but kudos for that extra care taken to ensure it fits on Tri-Klops's back. That's excellent.

  • i like it also. I just need to figure out who to give it to.

    congrats to you FakeEyes22 for wining

  • I apologize for this, but the price is actually $7 per sword. I messed up in my original post.

  • sweet.. I was waiting for something like this.. and while I prefer the sword Trike got, I'm really happy this will be available.. I'm pretty likely to get one, I'd say

  • Wow, cool! And relatively unexpensive! I'm tempted to order more. There's evil bounty hunters, heroic archers, and palace guards waiting for this!

    An alternative might be the Sword of Tarantul, featuring a dark blue, almost purple hilt, perfect for man-spiders and other warriors.

    Or the Blade of Doom, featuring a purple hilt and being able to glow in the dark. A weapon of choice for undead ghostly being.

    Maybe there's also a version with bronze hilt, manufactured for one-eyed mutants.

    Heroic robotic warriors might favor a sword with bright blue hilt when there's no time to get their arm attachements.

    Leaders of evil henchmen could use a two-toned purple version when being dressed up in battle armor.

    And skin-shedding serpents would be happy to wield an all-red or green version for times when a snake staff is not enough.

  • Very nice! Simple, yet effective. I'll definitely be ordering one of these.

    I like Reilly's idea for the sword of Tarantul.

    Another good idea might be a clear-yellow colored blade with a black hilt. Something similar to what a bee might carry…. just saying.

  • It's alright looking, but I have dozens of spare swords from McFarlane, Diamond, and other figure lines that can serve as generic swords, and don't look as plastic-y. Still, I'm happy Poe hit on a winner for everyone else.

  • It looks okay, but would've been better if it was a more metallic shade of gold, similar to He-Ro's.

    I'm glad most people are happy with it though.

  • Really nice! I love having additional swords that aren't the Power Sword.

    I only wish that this also came with a strapped scabbard.

  • Nice idea for a generic blade that is NOT a Power Sword… Kinda wish the girls could get a Generic Sword… either from customizers or as Peter Cullen would say : "From Mattel"

    Sword Wielding Pee Wee look so cool!

  • yes a strapped scabbard would be very very cool. I know its very early but maybe you can as your next exclusive that can work for a certian bird-man. Just a thought

  • @Jason:

    Something nice for a "flying bird-like humanoid" would be some gauntlets or talon-like claws which snap on, but do not require the figure to be able to hold them.

  • Definitely digging the sword, I'd love a version with a black blade and red hilt.kinda like the Ebony blade for the black knight..just keep the weapons coming.

    I agree that a certain "human-bird" like warrior could really use a weapon…

  • @Poe…this is an excellent addition to the custom weapons..

    how about coming up with a hammer, the kind that Steel has..it looks great with BAHM, but seems a little small for his size..
