We're thrilled to announce the latest addition to our line of officially licensed high-end collectibles -- a limited edition Sword Of Omens prop replica from the iconic 1980’s cartoon series, ThunderCats.
It requires a fair degree of artistic interpretation, working hand in hand with the licensor, to take 2D drawings created for animation or toy sculpts, both of which were intended for a less detailed execution, and realize them as fully developed and full-sized real-world items.
One such artistic judgment involves determining the size of a 1:1 scale replica for an animated character. The wielder of the Sword Of Omens, Lion-O, has no official height, so the replica, which measures 41 inches (104 cm) in length, has been scaled to the proportions of an adult human standing 6.2” (1.9m) tall.
Our replica sword is set in an “open” design and features a full-tang stainless steel blade with a mirror-chrome finish, a cast metal hilt with acrylic inserts and enamel detailing. A red imitation gemstone is inset into the pommel.
Each replica also includes a numbered, wall hanging wood display and a certificate of authenticity booklet.
ThunderCats fans can also look forward to future prop replica announcements from us, including Mumm-Ra’s helmet, coming very soon.
CARE & CLEANING
The blade should be polished with a soft dry cloth after a handling, stubborn grime/fingerprints can be removed with a weak solution of mild dish-soap and water applied with a damp cloth, dried and polished off with a soft dry cloth.
The blade has a mirror-polish finish. Do not scrub it. Do not use any chemical cleaner, abrasive polishes or homemade cleaners. (such as backing soda, vinegar or ammonia.)
The Eye of Thundera is acrylic and should only be cleaned with specialist acrylic cleaners and polishes, great care should be taken not to scratch either of the acrylic domes.
The entire replica will benefit from the occasional light dusting with a feather duster, antistatic dusting wand or canned air duster.
Always remove the replica from the wall hanging plaque when cleaning or dusting.
