Cardcaptor Sakura Clow Wand / Sealing Staff (Early Edition) (Bandai)

For those that had view this page before, i managed to get one of this early edition clow wand. It’s a 1998 edition, much earlier than the 1999 and 2004 releases, naturally.

The Clow Wand & Clow Key

The wand itself is much longer that the two later releases. Please check the photos below for the comparison. The clow key itself is a metallic material with a leather strap.

A comparison between Clow Wands and Clow Keys. Notice the difference in color and glossiness of the wand. The operational modes itself is split into 2.
