I did a google search and a forum search and couldn't turn up anything more then the sword that comes with the Generations G2 prime upgrade kit. Has anyone announced planes for a non-floppy Drift sword yet?

i don't think a 3rd party would just do one sword...

maybe try looking in the 3d printing area of 3rd party guys.

Found this:

From what I've seen of the Shapeways stuff, you might want to pony up for the polished option. Or to quote Dvandom from the linked thread...

You can buy Shapeways stuff polished for an extra fee, which would hopefully prevent the fuzzies. I've done a more thorough job of filing down Eject and Rewind, and while there's still some issues on the details, it's not as bad now.

The figure is 31mm tall, as noted in the dyed-but-not-painted figure.

No idea on the quality, or what the different materials will result as. But this is at least something like what you want.

Just found this alternative design on Shapeways:

My FlickR folder...

And yes, I was too lazy to come up with a decent TF related forum name, and just *GASP* used my own.

Hmm.

I've seen these sweet looking metal swords that are sold in Japan. Various katanas and the like.

I can't recall what scale they were, but they were small, so I wonder if they'd work nicely with a deluxe like Drift.

Depends on if you want them to still stow on his back clip.
