  1. This was obvious from the moment they announced the names. Of course Sword, the weapon, was going to be more popular than Shield, the defense. That’s why I got Shield, as I always do the less popular version. It gives me ever so slightly more valuable version exclusives.

  2. It’s not the one with the wolf with the weired looking shield head? Oh my, I’m shocked. I’d totally go with Sword, but unfortunately I much prefer Shield’s exclusives =/
