Geralt's swords are horrible. They're too big. They're flat, plastic-gray, and the handles are hilariously oversized... like the handles were made from entire unworked tree stumps. BUT, what I was actually talking about was what Magnuz was saying; the trend right now seems to be really shapeless blades made of too-soft material that warps and droops.spinc wrote: Well I have the Grealt figure and his swords are okay.

These figures really demand to be posed in 'swords-out' poses that will look pretty terrible if the swords look more like pool noodles.
I still have an old McConan sword in my accessories bin. And damn that thing is nice. The blade is nicely detailed, correctly scaled, pointy, and super rigid. I can see the argument that it's also brittle enough that it could pretty easily break if you're not careful. But it's held up for what.. 15 years? whereas you go grab a Robin right now and his sword is a shapeless lump that can't support it's own weight right out of the box.
