I maybe a critic, but I ended up getting what I expected.
on December 6, 2011
To be honest, I did alot of studying with the comments about this Shield when i was trying to decide to order it or not, and after reading some not so great things about it, I decided to try my luck and order it. I just received it from FedEx a few hours ago, and after getting it out of the box, I ended up getting what I wanted.
I read about how some people ended up getting the other style of this shield, which made me slightly nervous about this buy, but upon getting it out of the box, I flipped the shield over and was extremely relieved to have gotten whats shown in the picture, which is what I was hoping to get. There isn't much to complain about, but it does have a few slight imperfections with the paint, but its nothing that can't be fixed.
Other then the paint, the strap on the back isn't all that great, but then again, once you get it adjusted to the size of your arm, it feels quite nice. Or, if it is a little bothersome for you, just cut the strap down to size, or even make your own. The handle is a little questionable, but then again, its nothing really big to worry about, something you can easily make yourself as well.
I was nervous about this buy from the moment I pressed the Place Order button, but Its exactly what I wanted, exactly the way I thought it'd be, and I'm very pleased as to what I received. Hopefully, this review will be a little help, and a little more positive reinforcement, because there shouldn't be any worry involved when you place your order for this. Its an absolutely gorgeous Shield, and with a Replica of the Master Sword with it, Its a really astounding picture.
