Cloud Strife's "First Tsurugi" from Final Fantasy VII - Advent Children~!!!
Weapon making and photography and editing, catering and providing of venue by

This is the final deviation for this weapon.
It shows the weapon separated into all 6 blades and how each one works.
hmmm...it looks almost like a toy catalog....:s
Now alot of people call this thingo the Buster Sword...it's called First Tsurugi. ~Useful Info~
The sword is built entirely of Foam core boards, with a wooden core in the centre sword to support everything else. The sword can be disassembled into the 6 separate blades.
The centre sword (Vigilante), opens and closes in and out of the battle mode. These are done by making wooden pegs inside the centre blade.
The smaller blades (Ascalon and Sidewinder) have turning handles and gears.
Everything is pretty simple about the making of this weapon since it was quite the rush job. Most techniques utilized can be found performed at most primary school art classes. (Eg. cutting foam boards, gluing shapes together to make a 3D shape...etc.)
