    MOTUC & vintage power sword comparison

    I need to see a photo of the current sword next to a vintage version, to compare size, as well as thickness of their handles. I want some modern swords for my vintage figures, but I worry the handle may be too thick for their hands.

    Looks like there both about the same thickness in the handle

    Yes, the MOTUC sword is too big to fit in the original figure's hand. But that's really easy to fix. Just put some tape around the MOTUC sword to protect it, chuck it up in a drill (blade end into the drill) then get some sand paper and sand the handle down while the drill is spinning slowly. I small metal fingernail file would work even better.

    The difference does seem rather minimal, and the commemorative figures at least do have arms made of a slightly soft material. Thunder Punch He-Man also has a much wider hand. I can sand them down slightly using a fine grit sandpaper rolled into a tube, I wouldn't use a drill, I can do it manually, much easier control, but it may not be totally necessary.

    I've also just noticed that Mer-Man's sword handle is much thicker than standard for the vintage line but it fits the hand okay.

    Vintage figures can hold the sword, it just fits a bit tighter.

    Caveat - some can't. I believe some re-eleases were given a tighter grip.
