So it's approx. 50% life size?

EDIT: Original is 94.5 centimetres, so if this replica is 30cm, then it's ~30% size.

I actually like the design, so it's a matter of taste. It was designed to stay lit even when subjected to winds while being carried by a runner and I think it meets that design goal pretty well. Using a different fuel could minimize the black soot, but my advice is not to light this replica. :cheesygri

Unless you get one of the "used" real Olympic torch, none of these replicas will go up in value.

I got a $100 1976 gold olympic coin that my parents bought for me as a kid. I see on ebay that it is going for around $250. After 34 yrs of hold it, I'm pretty sure that this was not a good investment. Although I would never sell it because of the sentimental value.
