    That looks fantastic. I've wanted a metal one forever. Looking forward to seeing the progress with it.

    While I disagree that it is just a lump of metal without it-- I am considering putting it on.

    Wow, so Disney owns the rights to the names of the Norse pantheon and their weapons now? Who knew!

    Has anyone asked a Dane or Swede how they feel about this?

    I guess we'd all better stop making Ark of the Covenant replicas, or Grails, etc.

    It not that, it's the fact the mace and it's wielder was created by an artist working for a certain comicbook company ( which I won't name so as to go with the care being taken in NOT naming this weapon). If they were public domain, the Disney can rant all they want and nothing could be said. Sux, I know.

    Yes yes, I know about the comic character; I'm saying that they can't possibly have any ownership rights over the names, only the distinctive likenesses. The actual thunder god and his weapon are as public domain as it gets. I guess you're right; if the likeness matches then it amounts to the same thing.

    Jebus, you lot will eventually copyright all our genomes, our homes and our first-born children. :p

    PS - in my cantankerousness over the Mouse and their machinations, I neglected to say "Eaglewood, your work is excellent". So, Eaglewood, your work is excellent!!!

    Just to clarify, the weapon Eaglewood has created and the character that wielded it isn't a character out of Norse mythology, and not Thor. I feel I can say "Thor" here, because that name is allowed for public use and isn't the character referred to here (although, let me know if I'm wrong and I'll edit the name out of my post). The weapon created by Eaglewood appears to be based on that of a different character, and that character is a creation of said comic company. So the use of the name and design of the weapon and the character associated with it do belong to that company.
    No offense intended or anything. As I said before, I just wanted to clarify to issue for anyone else.

    AHA. OK - showing my superhero ignorance here then - sorry for the static and thanks for the clarification. If that's correct then it makes perfect sense.

    Sorry Dis..coughchoke...Sorry, Disn...gag...nope, can't say it. Well I tried. :lol

    Just call him Eric.

    I'd probably buy a resin one. I can't afford these fancy dancy metals.

    If I would have,bought one of unsaid comic companies products, recasted it, then I would be very wrong. I have created everything I do from scratch without actually having in my possession any of the products that I am supposed to be in copyright violation of. Its kind of like the unsaid company looking at one of my original sculpture and creating one similar to it. Can I say that they dint have a right to do that? Dunno. Similar, yes-- exact copy--no
    PS. There may be resin ones coming.
