    Can we get a replacement Sword of Protection if it says "CHINA" on it?

    Can we call customer service and get a replacement?

    It seems not everyone's Sword of Protection has the word "CHINA" in big bold white letters on it.

    That's one of the stupidest things I've ever seen, it's not subtle in the LEAST.

    How many people have one without CHINA on it?

    I scratched "China" off of mine. You can see where it was but it didn't leave any damage. Seems stupid to put that on a sword in that place like we don't already know this came from China.

    Agreed. It was the most disappointing part of opening that weapons pack.

    I understand the writing has to be on something, so why not stick it on the bottom of the perch, or the back of the shields? Somewhere that doesn't completely ruin the weapon.

    On the 2 GW-WPs I opened, only Roboto's black gun has the "CHINA" on it. Everything else is "CHINA"-less!

    I forgot to answer your request. They might actually wants you to send the entire GW-WP back and send you a sealed one on your shipping expense of course. And that's not telling either if you even get the "CHINA"-less version.

    You could however just try to scratch it off as suggested by Jedi_Master_Jeremy or just paint over it.

    Funny they're still stamping these on weapons in these packs. Are they seriously afraid these packs will get bootlegged and need the stamp? Do they believe bootleggers won't simply copy that too?

    Oddly, the yellow power sword with TRU Skeletor has it molded onto the handle.

    I must have been extremely lucky. I first opened up my weapons pack, ready to scratch off the "China" on my Sword of Protection. Much to my surprise, I didn't have it! Upon inspection of all my weapons, NONE of them have any writing on them. Lucky

    I guess this officially makes She-Ra's sword a knock-off of He-Mans.
    Fictional characters are just that. Fictional. They have no personality or free will of their own.
    Writers and editors mold them to their own wants and needs.
    All we as the audience and fans can do is pick and choose our favorite interpretation and ignore the rest.

    Yay!

    My WP v2.0 seems to be "CHINA"-less, except for Roboto's black laser cannon. While I haven't done a full audit, definitely She-Ra's sword, Evil Lyn's wand and Zoar's armor & stand are without "China".
