Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon – Part One: A Child of Fire is almost upon us. We’ll soon be officially entering the festive season, but for us… It’s all about Rebel Moon. Merch has slowly started appearing online and in stores such as HMV, ranging from pins, mugs, Pop Vinyls and now… Flaming swords. We absolutely love a good collectible, but we never imagined seeing a Rebel Moon replica. Weta Workshop, the legends behind The Lord of the Rings, have gone above and beyond to bring fans this unique pair of blades sraight from Snyder’s blockbuster.
Fans can embody the vengeful spirit of Nemesis (Doona Bae) with these burning swords. These swords, while incredibly cool, come with their own story… A story of grief, anger and revenge.
“On her path of vengeance, Nemesis evoked an ancient rite whereby she chopped off her own two hands replacing them with two artifact gauntlets able to grip a pair of red-hot swords, literally binding her to fate.
Diving deep into the new and unexplored universe of Rebel Moon, Wētā Workshop is thrilled to recreate these stunning blades. As a company with a lengthy history of special effects knowledge, we welcomed the challenge of bringing these molten blades to life for the hands of avid fans.
Utilizing state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques and machinery, our artists meticulously crafted the unique shape of these deadly weapons. When combined with precise paint applications and LED lighting rigs, they faithfully replicate the signature superheated glow as seen on screen.“
These magnificent blades are available to preorder via Weta Workshop right now. They are limited to just 500, which means they could go quick, and they’re due to be released in October of 2024. The price may seem high, but when you break it down £235 ($299) for two blades isn’t actually that bad, especially when you consider a Hasbro Black Series Lightsaber averages at £250-£300. It may sound like we’re trying to sell it to you, when in reality we’re just trying to justify it ourselves… Do we need them? Debatable. Do we want them? Definitely.
