The new swords are great designs, but they make the old ones look cartoony and childish. So I don't think they go well together. And when I have to pick between old and new, I'm going with old most every time.

I would have liked it more if the crossguard was just a straight bar across, and it didn't "dip down" into the hilt. But I appreciate the change either way.
I am definitely looking forward to seeing it in more sets in the future, assuming this is an actual change and not a mysterious one-time change...
With the highlander claymore now showing up in main system LOTR sets, and the gladius showing up in two minifig series it seems safe to say that we have two new members of the lego sword family. I'm interested to know your thoughts on these swords.
For myself, while I like the blade design the hilts just do not 'do it' for me. For some reason the new swords seem 'cheap' next to the classic short swords. Do you agree or is that just me?

Time to run home and check for myself!
EDIT: or are you saying just the instructions show it to be different? Where did the one in the pic come from if that's the case?
