View Full Version : Best official Hidden Blade replica

I'm considering getting one of these, just wanted to know if anyone here has any of them and would recommend/warn me about any of them

Ezio's Brotherhood Hidden Blade


Edward's Black Flag Hidden Blade


Arno's Unity Hidden Blade


So far i like the look of Arno's blade because if you ignore the crossbow it seems the most realistic given its smaller size

Arno's looks a bit cheap to me. They do look nice as a replica but I'd have to go with Edwards since it looks so piratey especially with that skull.

I have Edwards on my desk...


Like it a lot :)

I am also getting Arno's too though...

Edward's Hidden Blade does look very awesome but isn't the actual blade rather bendy

I'm not looking for full on metal, but I'd prefer if the blade could support itself and from a few videos I've seen, the blade seems to almost flop out
Might go with Arno's hidden blade, seems I'd prefer it the most and you didn't say it was a bad choice, you even said you were getting it too and even though the crossbow seems bit silly I'm sure I could have some fun with it

I'm actually considering getting the Arno blade. It looks really cool and I love the crossbow arms.

Get Edward's hidden blade. I've only worn Ezio's hidden blade once and I'm forever keeping it on display without touching it. The gauntlet is too plastically and can potentially leave bent marks or get scratched from something as little as dropping it. The plastic in general, is pretty cheap. The ''wow, it's much, much lighter than I expected'' kind of cheap.

Edward's hidden blade may be bendable, but it's durable. Although, I haven't actually put it to any real test.

As for the Phantom Blade, I'm still unsure about that one. I'm not a fan of McFarlane toys, but I've pre-ordered it for the sake of collection. It looks accurate, real, and durable enough from the IGN video. Who knows, it could be the best out of the three. I mean, it shoots! :p

The Edward blade is really flimsy... It break extremely easy but it looks nice. The blade shoots out and that didn't just happen to me it's happened to so many people. If it hots someone it could actually hurt really bad...

I'll get Arno's for now but might try to get Edward's Hidden Blade aswell at some point since it does look really nice

btw found it re-done in full on metal, wish i could get that
