Paine's Sword
The sword used by the character Paine in the game Final Fantasy X-2. LIFE-SIZE!!!
About this creation
This is a life-size replica of the sword used by the character Paine in the PS2 game Final Fantasy X-2. I made it in two days. This, in my opinion, was one of my easiest MOCs to make.

I built this for an anime convention that I attended, called ACen, along with another Final Fantasy X-2 weapon, the Tiny Bee (a soon-to-be-posted MOC). I got a lot of props (no pun intented) for this sword, even from some famous people!

My only problem was that, at five feet and three inches long, the sword blatantly broke the "four foot prop rule" (props may not exceed four feet in length whilst being carried. They can be any length, however, as long as you can assemble it for picture posing and then disassemble for carrying) at the convention. Assembly is what Legos do best!

So, I made a detachable portion of the blade that was one foot, three inches long, making the disassembled sword exactly four feet long! The blue friction-tie wrapped on the decorative part of the sword shows all of the ACen staff that the sword is certified to be within four feet, so I didn't get into trouble.

The convention lasted three days, and I carried it for all three. I never dropped the sword, it needed repairs only twice, but I dropped the edge of the blade at least three times.
Pieces lost during the con: Only 4

Since I only had a suitcase, I had to design the sword with storage space in mind. It is completely modular, and can be broken up into nine separate parts, and stored easily. The blade and handle can be put together in about 20 seconds, while it takes a few minutes to get the decorative portion on. The blade alone is four feet long.

The modular design actually lends to the sword's strength, as well. I DO NOT BELIEVE IN GLUING MOCS!!! If you held the sword by the handle completely parallel to the ground, it would stay together without effort (although, I didn't do that in the example picture because it is friggin' heavy).

   I call this "Obligatory Phallic Pic."
Even under the stress of gravity, the sword will not fall apart.

At least, I hope it is... :P
