Hello chaps, I figured I'd add a twist to the past challenge, asking you to design a minifig-usable weapon with moving parts. Be it a flail, nunchucks, or fancy-looking retractable knife. Good luck, and happy customizing!
~Criteria~
-Weapons must feature at least two components that distinctly move in relation to the other, and whose movement will not necessarily directly affect the other.
-All entries must be original, and no re-posts of older customs are allowed.
-Moving parts must be distinct and intended to move. No "wobbly sprue" or "Sliding U-clip" methods of movement will be counted.
-Deadline for entries is 1/12/2011
Other than that, all entries will be accepted.
-Recommended reading

Cheers!

Mr. Vadamee,

You do realize that as a duel, you are compelled to compete? Otherwise you forfeit.

Sorry, my mistake. Eyes be playin' tricks on me again. ;)

And while I'm at it, here's a link to mine.

Enter the Dragon Knight, a soldier trainded to protect the borders and eliminate the enemies of the state with his brutal execution dagger. Sort of like a pair of scissors, only intended to lop off heads.
In retrospect, I thought the sword would look a lot cooler than it did. Meh, in any case I vote yours, Omi. :{)
