MotUC Cosmic Sword

I ordered this way back in April, but only got it this month.  I can't fault Plastique Realm though, they did send it out in April as the sticker attests.  However, it took 3 months to get here, most of which was probably left sitting in a post office in California or something.  Not good.

I actually ordered the gitd crystal for He-Ro as well.  So that was 2 items that came.  The crystal does glow rather well I must add, but I'm a complete idiot at customising, and since the original crystal was glued into He-Ro's staff, I have no idea how to remove it.

The sword looks like the other swords from Mattel, but is made of a softer plastic.  The colour is also more or less similar to that of Wun-Dar, without the second tone, of course, but with the silver speckles... which in my copy isn't really that visible.

Does it look good on He-Ro?  Well, I don't think so.  It seems weird somehow.  I would have preferred a semi-see-through sword like the blue, but in navy.  Alas, that's not what this sword is all about.  Overall, I'm a bit disappointed with the sword, despite it's excellent quality.


  1. Very odd. The Cosmic Sword I got from Plastique Realm is translucent and made from strong plastic--it looks and feels exactly like a production sword, and it's actually even better than the He-Ro sword because it's actually cast in the color, not done clear and painted blue.

    It sounds like he downgraded the quality.

  2. Are these meant to be customizable pieces or finished products?

  3. They were supposed to be finished product.
