A lot of blood was spilled over the course of three seasons (and a prequel) of Spartacus. Luckily, very few actors were actually harmed during production – and they have the Spartacus props and visual effects teams to thank for surviving the arena, pit and rebellion unscathed. For fans of the Starz epic – as well as those interested in visual effects – VIP Fan Auctions is offering a collection of murmillo gladius swords used in production of the series. The set includes a cut-off sword used for visual effects, a retractable gladius and two full-sized swords crafted of hard foam. Each piece is an amazing collectible – but the set is a truly a lesson in gladiator visual effects. Click here for more information and photos of each sword – and get in on the bidding today!
