Awesome Gunblade Replica



This is probably the most awesome gunblade replica I've ever seen, it's Squall's gunblade from Final Fantasy VIII. It looks so good I would buy that thing in a random battle minute, to bad it sounds like a one off, a project for a prop making college course.

Lightning Gunblade Transformation Videos


A great computer generated representation of the Lightning gunblade transformation. It seems to me that it would be quite difficult to build this in reality, luckily that doesn't stop some folk from trying and with pretty cool results.

A nice transforming DIY gunblade.

Another awesome transforming DIY gunblade.

Gives me motivation to move forward with my gunblade build.

Just a couple rough drawings and designs for a possible gunblade build. I plan on doing a lot more gunblade drawings before I actually start building the prop, the drawings should be a whole lot better than these ones, which I did at work with pen on bits of scrap paper.

Potential Gunblade Build

I've been interested in a gunblade build on and off for awhile now and now that I have a bit more time in the evenings and a bit more cash in my pocket I thought the time was right to get it started.

Lightning's Destructive Hardened Steel Gunblade

Found a video of someone who decided to make a very real hardened steel replica of Lightning's gunblade from Final Fantasy VIII, and when I say real I mean this thing could literally chop limb from limb. The beautiful destruction of this beast is something to behold and the shear beauty of the craftsmanship is awesome, it looks heavy as hell though.

Life Size Gunblade Replicas

Howdy there, it's been a long, long time since my last post, so long in fact that I hadn't noticed this blog had been hacked, hijacked and showing content from some dirty scoundrel for the past three or so months, luckily they didn't lock me out and I was able gain control fairly hassle free.

Anyhoo, I've been on the lookout for more life size Gunblade replicas recently and came across the video below showcasing a Gunblade that I've always known as the X Fantasy Gun Sword, I thought they had stopped making these but it seems they are all over eBay. It was for the longest time the only life size Gunblade replica you could get, then they seemed to disappear off the radar, now they're back again, joy!!!

The state of Gunblades for sale

Sadly there aren't a lot of real Gunblades out there for purchase, there was a really nice unofficial one called the x fantasy gun sword, life size and all, but I'm guessing due to the crackdown on pirated goods by Square-Enix, I can no longer seem to find it anywhere, maybe if you're lucky you'll find on ebay.

Check for Gunblades on eBay U.S.A

Also check for Gunblades on eBay U.K


There was also another life size wooden Gunblade on offer, but that seems to have gone the way of the dodo as well.

And then there's the ever present official miniature Gunblade replicas, you can get those pretty much anywhere, but it ain't life size.

I guess the only real option if you want a life size Gunblade is to make one yourself.

It's a whole lot smaller than I thought.

Even Chicks like Gunblades

The following video shows this gunblade, I think and it looks pretty bad ass, heavy and solid.

By the way the OWNER of this gunblade is A1JE and she's a girl, never expected that. Seems like a lot of passion out there for gunblades.
