Wanna see some MATRIX II weapons?
Hey folks, Harry here... Hehehhehe, oh man... oh man oh man oh man, yes yes yes... Ya know, this is what I want to see. Let's ditch the guns and get back to basics! I want sword powers and action and badassness... ManOmanOmanOman... Yes!
Yo Harry, Cynn Samhain from the Jagged*Team here. (JaggedTeam.Com)
Last night as I was looking at weapons on OrientalWeapons.Com. I found a page with the Musashi Miyamoto Daisho Katana. At the bottom of the description, it reads: "These swords were used in the upcoming movie MATRIX II." I emailed the company asking how they knew these swords to be in the movie and got this reply:
"According to manufacturer it is true however we decided to remove all CAS Iberia swords and we are not going to carry them. Regards, Darius Lachovicz Global Outlet"
I thought this would be a nice tidbit for all the really hard core Matrix fans. Personally I can't wait to see all of the awesome Matrix camera tricks used with melee weapons.
