The Magus Sword
The Magus Sword. A life size sword inspired by 'Sting' off LOTR.
About this creation
Here is a sword I built in between R4 and R5 of the MO.



A couple of pics for size comparison.





Thanks to my beautiful model, Mel, who was surprisingly willing to be photographed even while knowing the pics would get put up here.

Quoting Deus Otiosus Since i'm feeling inapropriate and stuff... She must like that sword!
Lol, you and Stormbringer alike ;) This is the obvious MOC for that line though...

Quoting Kain Culver I'm wondering how many times you dropped that in the video
Not once, nor has the sword ever broken during swinging :) I use to do sword sparring with my brother, we can handle a 4 feet broom handle pretty well LOL :) As long as you know the balance of your weapon your fine.

Quoting frog man i agree with kain, it doesnt look strong enough to be swinging about like that.
It most deffinately is that strong, and yes it is too long to be Sting, thats why I said inspired by Sting. Sting is also a 1 hander dagger, this is a 2 hander sword. :)

i just realized, that sword is way too long to be sting- i have a replica of sting hanging in my hallway.

This sword is super cool with the trans blue, and about you not expecting it to be big, I'm sure you know you have a good fan following on here :)

Thank you to everyone for your wonderful comments, I did not expect this sword to be this big a hit. I do want to continue the theme but for the next few weeks it is all time dependant.

Quoting Marc dZ That is impressive!! I'm very fond of the design and the colors: the trans-blue bricks of the edges really make it (on the movie). And it looks so strong... Did you put a metal axle inside? Great job! 'Waiting for the shield... lol
No metal rod, the SNOT use on the guard acts as bracing for the swords weak spot. It worked quite well :)

Quoting Kayne _ Wow! Impressive piece of work here...that is a very cool Sting. More impressive is the fact that Mel doesn't look to put out to be the model! My wife(also Melissa), would have at least given me a snarky look for making her pose for me!
Believe me when I say I was surprised myself lol. Mel normally doesn't want to do anything with the Lego except comment on progress :) I was happy chappy with this :D

Quoting Stormbringer . Holy smokes! She looks beautiful (err.. meaning the sword). It's amazing that you've found the time to work on this impressive piece of work during the Mocolympics.
Lol this really was a quickie, took between 2-3 hours last Thursday night.

  November 8, 2011
Quoting Pedro Resendes I'd like to see Mel swinging it too;) I don't know how you made it solid to the point it doesn't break, but that's quite a feat.
The SNOT work on the guard acts as bracing for the weak spot between the handle and blade. The blade does flex a little too.

Quoting Master Shifu Leo J So where's the pic of Lady Mel swinging the sword on your neck? XD
That's not until we have been married for a few years lol!

Quite a feat of engineering, Chief! It's one thing to make something look like a sword, it's entirely different to have it strong enough to swing around like that. Well done! And Mel was a real sport to play along!

The fact that you can swing it around like that, without it falling apart, is quite impressive! Now you need to make another one and have a duel!

The sword is nice looking, but to me the sturdiness is the most impressive part.
