Bandai’s Proplica line recreates certain items from anime into full-size replicas. Sure, they may not have the same power of the actual object, but they’re pretty accurate as far as props are concerned. Now, the latest to get the Proplica treatment is Saber Artoria’s Excalibur from the Fate franchise, in a new collaboration with Aniplex+.
Bandai uses state-of-the-art manufacturing technology to recreate this legendary Arthurian sword, though it certainly won’t be able to level cities much like the original. However, it does boast some special effects such as lights and sound effects. It measures in at 115cm in length, and is exactly the same size as the one from the anime.
The “Invisible Air” which makes Excalibur invisible during the anime may also be included in the Proplica version. The replica sword itself will be previewed during the Fate/Grand Order Fes. 2017 – 2nd Anniversary event in Japan. Expect more details about this replica prop to be revealed during the event.
