Epic Weapons is adding an interesting piece to their catalog of replica swords: the Vorpal Blade
from American McGee's Alice
. If you're going to the San Diego Comic Con you can pre-register for an auction starting on July 22nd, when the first 25 Vorpal Blades will be auctioned off. You can also place a pre-order at the Epic Weapons website
. This is a little strange as the game is ten years old, but it is a fitting 10th anniversary event and probably a promotional tactic for the recently announced sequel

Released in 2000, American McGee's Alice is a third-person action/adventure PC game that adds a thrilling and distinctive new chapter to the classic Lewis Carroll tales, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. The game features strangely familiar characters and fantastic settings abound as an older and wiser Alice returns to reclaim Wonderland from the evil rule of the deranged Queen of Hearts.
