One of my first and still favorite reviews I did was the Corbot V Axe. At the time my photo skills were, lacking but dang I LOVE that axe and still use it! Well now I have expanded the third party weapons with Dr. Wu’s Skybreaker sword! This is a new take on Prime’s Star Saber, so let’s see if it lives up to the legend.
The Skybreaker is a fantastic weapon molded after Prime’s Star Saber. I love the geometric lines, the sharp angles…and the hilt and pommel are just sexy. The dash of gold really pops and makes the sword look high end. It feels solid, but not heavy, which is great for over the head poses and such.
When I first ordered the Skybreaker it was intended for Beast Hunter’s Prime, but the grey version looks REALLY good with Fall of Cybertron Grimlock. Also compared to his stock sword…yeah a bit..umm…lack of stature.
The sword comes also with a clip for storage. This pegs into any 5mm hole, so is great for the new Generations series of figures, Prime and Mech Tech toys. Depending where the peg holes are, you really can dress up your figures.
The real genius in design is that the pommel is removable so the handle can slide into any 4 or 5mm grip! The 4mm is a nice feature because that seems what Fans Projects likes to use…and it is hard to find stuff to enhance their own stuff.
The handle is just long enough for deluxe figures to use a two handed grip. The previously mentioned light weight is great because the sword won’t cause the figures to be off balance.
I believed I mentioned this in the Beast Hunters Ultra Mangus Review, but the right accessory can save a lame figure. Poor Voyager Prime here got one of my first and few Rant reviews…even The Axe couldn’t help him…
The Skybreaker Sword? This is his savior. I swear Hasbro, if you gave us weapons like these instead of light up over sized guns…ahh well..
It would be a crime to not have at least one shot of Beast Hunters Prime wielding this bad boy…even if it is against a Chaotic opponent…
Even sheathed the Skybreaker sword just adds something awesome to all your figures. Now the only thing I am not a fan of is that the clip is purple! Really clashes with not just the sword, but with anything you have it pegged into.
Oh did I mention it comes in other flavors? I got two of these guys, one in purple as well, but they have red and green also available.
The Skybreaker Sword has my full endorsement. You can order youself one or more (I recomend more) here. It is a fantastic universal weapon for all your Transformers.
Oh…and yeah…they made the dark Saber as well
