Epic Weapons in collaboration with Electronic Arts have produced a perfect 1:1 scale replica of the Vorpal Blade from the video game ALICE: MADNESS RETURNS.

This is apparently a Limited Edition blade, but of how many I have no idea (if you know, post away in the comment section). If it’s anything like the sold out American McGees Commemorative Edition it will be limited to 1000 only, but that’s just my best guess.

In my opinion this is a much nicer prop replica than the commemorative edition, but like the commemorative edition it is also cast with the highest quality Japanese stainless steel with custom etched molds created to reflect the exact details of Alice’s primary weapon.

UPDATE: You can presently purchase this cheaper than anywhere else through Entertainment Earth at the link below:

ALICE: MADNESS RETURNS Vorpal Blade Replica (at Entertainment Earth for 84.99)!

Currently the Vorpal Blade is only available via Backorder at Sideshow Collectibles, obviously because it’s pretty popular, but at the time of writing this post you can still find it new on ebay at the link below (for the same price, which is $119.99):

ALICE: MADNESS RETURNS Vorpal Blade Knife 1:1 Prop Replica (on Ebay for $119.95).

Want it cheaper? I’ve found a second seller on Ebay who has it in a collector’s box for $99.95. That’s a damn bargain! Link for that below:

Sideshow also recommend the Epic Weapons American McGees Alice Vorpal Blade Stand as a companion product to display your ALICE: MADNESS RETURNS Vorpal Knife. Image below:

I have no idea how well this stand works for the Madness Knife considering it is pictured with the American McGees version, but just from the image it looks like it’ll do the job just fine (hopefully).

Take a look at American McGees Alice Vorpal Blade Prop Replica Knife (Commemorative Edition by Epic Weapons).

Licensed to Sideshow Collectibles for distribution, this weapon replica was produced in collaboration with Electronic Arts in commemoration of the original ALICE production.

It’s cast with high quality Japanese stainless steel and has custom etched molds created to reflect the exact details of Alice’s primary weapon.

It’s a Limited Edition item of only 1,000 and at the time of this post is out of stock. These are so popular I couldn’t find any elsewhere, so if you want it, you’ll have to search better than I did or place a backorder with Sideshow which you can still do for $89.99 at the following link:

If you’ve got one, or if you order one, you’ll want to display you knife. To do that you may want to grab the Epic Weapons American McGees Alice Vorpal Blade Stand as a companion product. Image below:

The display stand is craft of solid wood and finished in black satin laquer with a laser etched plaque.

It’ll set you back $19.99 but is, of course, optional to the knife itself.

Occasionally a prop replica gets released that from the moment you lay eyes upon it you really, really want it worse than anything else in the world. Actually that happens more than occasionally, but anyway…

As a big fan of V FOR VENDETTA, that’s how I felt the moment I saw this NECA (National Entertainment Collectibles Association) prop replica of V’s Dagger.

Unfortunately my initial enthusiasm was dampened (perhaps ‘shattered’ is a better word) by the fact that most people who purchased this weren’t very happy with it. Yes, it looks awesome in the above image, but ultimately the two biggest gripes from owners are 1) it’s a resin dagger rather than a real high-carbon steel one, and 2) the mold is often bent and not straight at all. 

I can handle the fact that it’s a resin mold and that it’s a display only replica, but what puts me off more than anything is the fact that it is reportedly not straight. Fire away in the comment section below if your experience of owning one is different to what I’ve heard, but for now I’m going to pass on this, sadly.

All that said, if you’re a V fan and you want this despite what some collector’s have said, you’ll be lucky to find it. NECA’s Dagger was a limited edition of only 1,500 pieces that are now very difficult to find. I couldn’t find any on eBay, but I did find one on Amazon: 

V For Vendetta Dagger Prop Replica (on Amazon) $79.99

I also noticed Entertainment Earth have it listed as “Out of Stock” but are also advertising you can pre-order it. I’m not sure how they can allow that since it’s a Limited Edition item that’s all gone, but if you’re game, here’s the link:
