You could use the Sizing weapon property from 3.5. It's in MIC, I believe.

Would it be allowed for just the size of the end of the weapon since it will be handled by the same person?

Resizing is the current size adaptive ability mod. Use that over any 3.5 ed.
Edit: Devs have done pretty well to minimize the chance anyone can wield a colossal weapon through shenanigans. Closest options I know of, involve using Titan Fighter archetype and combining that with Lead Blades, and enlarge or Monstrous Physique.

Oh not trying to cheese damage die, more than happy with my 1d2, man catchers just have to have their heads specialized by size so having a resizing head rather than an individual pole for each size category is infinitely less book keeping. Or approximately 1/8th. Whichever you prefer.

@Leo: Any thoughts on importing the Twilight armor enchantment from BoED/PHBII? Pathfinder has it's own ways to reduce arcane spell failure chance beyond just wearing mithral but they're more limited and a bit feat intensive.

Writing a battle mage, btw, and real armor and shields are just more effective than mage armor and more convenient than shield.

@DukeofTuring - Though I saw you mentioned you were mulling the idea of going Sage bloodline with Sorcerer if you are looking for an easy way to cast in heavy armor you could always take the Psychic Bloodline to make all your sorcerer spells count as psionic and thus no longer require verbal or somatic components. Just thought I'd throw it out there in case it helps. Admittedly you would still need to acquire proficiency somehow unless you did not care about the non-proficient penalties.

Seems fine to me.

Huh, didn't even think of that. I've never been a fan of psionics in general, but free still and silent spellcasting seems like a pretty good deal

This is gonna be a hard choice to make when the time comes LeoByron. Every app i have read is awesome in its own way.

@Leo:
*How common are psionic casters in this setting compared to other casters? Is this kind of a "available to pcs, but the rest of the world doesn't bother with it" sort of thing?
*Would a sorcerer with the psionic bloodline have psicraft and use psionic device as class skills instead of their magic equivalents?
*If you're wary of Pages of Spell Knowledge then how do you feel about the human alternate favored class bonus for sorcerers?

Psionics are significantly less common than arcane magic though some have posited that the Overseers draw their power from psionic or psychic sources. (which would make them fairly common in a sense if this were the case)

No since they are still Arcane Casters who happen to draw on some psionic potential in the form of bonus spells. I assume it would state such in the bloodline description if this were intended to be the case.

The Human alternate FCB is fine. I put a cap on spell pages merely to avoid someone dumping their entire noble wealth into hoarding known spells. Some additional spells known is fine.
