    Do you like Fistos Huge sword Sheath?

    Easy Question, do you like the Sheath? do you like that the 'Anime' proprtioned Sword has been accomodated in this way?

    The whole figure is a perfect 10. I'll buy 2 of him to display both, vintage and 200X style. Finally getting the 200X sword is like a dream come true after the Amaro desaster.
    Maybe Marzo as an archenemy was the biggest thing to happen to Mekaneck, but as far as Marzo was concerned...it was Tuesday.

    I'm happy were getting the 200X sword finally, but the larger sheath isn't appropriate IMO considering he is also coming w/ the original purple tri-klops sword.

    I don't like the bread basket he has slung to his back, and I don't like 200X proportions at all...I like the sword..I do, but it's too big and doesn't look right being so big. So if I bought another Fisto to open, I would not be using that sword at all, and would have to modify that huge eyesore on his back. They should have made a smaller holder, and a way to attach the larger sword by hanging or or clipping on. The rest of the figure looks really good, and can't wait to get him.

    Doesn't bother me to be honest as when he'll be on display, it won't be seen.

    I don't like the way it's executed in MOTUC, but if I were to display Fisto his huge sword would be on his back! My fisto uses his right fist to fight
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now who shall I fight for?

    Yeah it's a little different but it's fine. I certainly won't be posing him backwards anyway.

    I LOVE the Huge Sword and I'm thrilled you can store it on his back. I know "Vintage collectors" may not care for it but lets be honest the 80's fisto didn't have anyplace to store his purple tri-Klops sword either.

    I'm fine with it. Not really fond of the purple Tri-Klops sword.

    I think the sword is a bit...huge, but maybe that just fits with Fisto's bravado. I like the idea of him turning into a huge jerk while wandering Eternia, acquiring his 200X gear along the way. The TK sword is his old weapon.

    The scabbard doesn't really bother me much though; he looks awesome!!!!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    It works well with his 200X parts, but it's going to look out of place when displaying him with the purple sword and vintage head, which is my preferred look for Fisto.

    Overall, I wish he didn't have it. It's a blemish on an otherwise flawless figure.

    Can't say I really like it. I'm more into the vintage side of things for this line. The 2k2 accessories are all going into the box of unused parts, so that sheath will serve no purpose for me.

    Yes, I plan on keeping gigantor sword in that and having him hold little purple sword. I just can't make up my mind on which head to use and whether or not to go sans belt.
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    I think it is really cool that he has this big sword. I was driving one day and I envisioned Fisto using his big sword in his regular hand and his battle fist as the other Conan-style while fighting a sworm of snake men or Horde troopers. It would be glorious.

    The Sword might be a bit too large which makes the sheath so long.
    It's doesn't look great but I am happy he has a way to store a sword.
    Although I'm not sure yet if I'm going to use the 200X sword.

    I read about the purple sword not fitting into the sheath so if I use the purple sword only,
    I'll probably make a separate sheath for it which slides into the existing sheath.

    My Fisto will have the vintage head for sure and
    he won't wield any sword but will have one carrying around in his sheath.

    I like the nostalgic vintage sword. Not fond of the big thing- Guys, he isn't even able to draw that thing. And yes, that big hole on his back is fugly!

    I totally agree...I hate it and all the contradictions it brings with it! Its making my initial excitement for Fisto turn into bitter hatred of the figure! Dang it!!! so Im staying away from the lovefest out in the main forums!!!

    I am not going to use that over sized sword , so no I don't like the over sized gap on his back. The sword is way too big , it reminds me of that sword that cloud uses in FF7. It just looks wonky with him.

    I don't care for now. Mainly because as much as I love Fisto, I won't be getting him for a loooong time. Plus I have to have the figure in hand to see if it bothers me.
