You Can Own Conan's Actual Sword!

It was reported on the website Cool & Collected, that the premiere Hollywood movie props auction company, Profiles in History (who have their very own show on Syfy, titled Hollywood Treasure, which I strongly suggest checking out just to see all of the cool movie props, although the people on the show are cringingly smarmy and unlikable) are going to be auctioning one of the actual "Atlantean" swords used by Arnold himself during the filming of Conan the Barbarian!

The auction takes place this weekend, Dec. 17-18, and includes all kinds of hero (props used in close ups during filming) pieces, like one of the evil rocket-firing penguins from Batman Returns and Marty McFly's hoverboard from Back to the Future II.

But if you're still in the mood for swords, you may want to get your hands on this movie-used William Wallace sword from Braveheart.

It would be so cool to own one of these CONAN swords from the film itself. I know one can buy replica swords and there is a Pakistani company that makes them too. But I'd love the real deal.
For now I'll have to settle for my 90 dollar latex one.

Oh man, that is so out of my price range...on the upside, you can attach a blood bag to it and spray blood from the tip as you're decapitating your friends. How much fun would that be!

Lot's of other cool stuff in their catalog btw. Check it out!
