One Of Gaming’s Most Iconic Swords Get A Massive Steampunk Replica

No wonder there’s no one in these pictures wielding the massive two-metre tall Buster Sword, Cloud’s iconic weapon from Final Fantasy VII. It probably weighs a ton! More specifically it’s a slightly modified steampunk version of the weapon, made by the folks at Brick Replicas.

There’s a cog-wheel and an indicator attached, so we can safely call it steampunk, right? Right?

  • I really don’t get steampunk. I mean it looks cool and all, and it’s obviously meant to be non-functional, but what the hell would a steam powered SWORD do? Burn you? Sort of like a lo-fi gunblade

    • It’s really more a blend of DieselPunk with a retro-futuristic slant. While it has elements of Steampunk, they actually use Mako and it doesn’t have as much of a Victorian era influence. FFIX is actually more Steampunk because of the Mist-based technology and clothing.

  • This actually reminds me more of something like a prototype for the Red Queen that Nero uses in DMC 4. I think it’s the lever on the handle.
