Sword of Mana replica

Post by Tomoji » Thu May 20, 2010 4:59 pm

There was a replica of the Sword of Mana on ebay a few years ago.
I remembered it was on bid for 500$

does anyone remember what was the winning bid?

I always think about it and wished I had that much money to bid on something that great orz

Actually the starting bid was 5,000 dollars! I e-mailed the guy back and forth a few times and he said he wasn't going to let it go for less than 10,000 though, because the Nintendo Power contest it was involved in had it valued at 12,000. He had a reserve set on it.

I entered that contest and thought I had a good chance at winning, but my last entry for the tie breaker round (we had to write an essay, seriously) apparently never made it to Nintendo because I didn't even get the consolation prize I was supposed to get. T_T

There was no winning bid and the auction ended with the guy keeping the item. I still have his e-mail but it is no longer registered so there is no telling where the guy is.

Thanks for posting a picture of this though! I've been looking for one forever and I couldn't find it!

If someone asked me what I would by if I had 1000000 $, I would answer: "New Delorean, PlayStation 3 and THE SWORD OF MANA!"
Guys, this is brilliant thing!

I would go with the Peter Gibbons response on that.

Have the Sword of Mana would be pretty sweet though.

Oh god. This combines my love of Mana, love of video games and love of pointy stabby things. It is so very beautiful.

I may need to change my pants.

Wow,

That is really cool. What's it made out of, Sheexy? It looks like it's not a real sword but I MUST be mistaken for the price.

Peace,
