    Well, having held it in my hands and twirled it around a bit, it has a nice weight and seems to be very accurate in it's scale and details. I will say that I like it better as the full version, just felt way cooler. :angry

    I saw one directly out of the box at the MN Prop Party. Biggest problem: It ain't all metal. The 'connical' piece leading to the round disks emitter is PLASTIC. It's quite obviously plastic. So. You get what you pay for.

    I thought the battle damaged one was just a onsey of the dual blade. I have the dual and its solid metal in construction. One of the nicest pieces in terms of scale yet. The sound is great. Only issue is with the blades together, its huge piece, definately swinging that one outside only. :)

    I like the maul hilts. Pretty cool. They feel very solid. The sounds are not accurate - could be better IMO. Plus the blade is dim. They went to AAA batts, which doesnt help the issue. I like the hilts but want louder sound and brighter blades. So I'm busy retrofitting mine. :D
