    I'm still unsure about buying this one. After all the complaining about the fat necked Luke saber, don't you think they would've made this one skinny like some others I've seen (i.e. the one on rabbittooth's site)?

    *, i was hoping that a ep1 or 2 obi was announced...

    held this one... didnt like it. :(

    doing this one is like making a dooku... but making it straight... whats the point?

    no offense, you have a great site, and those double saber connectors rock...

    but this and the green luke :thumbsdown

    IMHO. :(

    why no ANH luke, sized like the ep3 anakin?

    why no ep1/2 obi?

    hell even the random jedi ki adi and plo koon type sabers (lik the arena ani/obi sabers) would be better choices than the ep3 obi...

    oh well what do i know?

    heres what it should look remotely like...

    in your words. "JUST AWESOME."

    JUST AWESOME...

    and the ep3 FX just doesnt come even remotely close to the actual prop, it may be cool (and yes i realise the ep3 obi is different than romans ep4, but heck romans real deal is bigger thean the ep3 prop, so...)

    you may like it but for prop discussion, and after having held the maul FX, this is just beyond unimpressive.

    heres a video with me holding the ugly luke ep6, while i got to see the AHEM real "DARTH MAUL" MR saber.

    im the hippie in red.

    B)

    i know a little about the FX line.

    i just want a ep1/2 obi or a qui gon, or an ep4 luke, all could be done so much easier than this complicatedly shaped saber...

    sorry just my 2 cents

    Oh wow thats you,I have watched this video many of times.

    How great that must have been to spar with Ray Park.
    Strong with the force you are.


    Oh that pic of the hilt is a OBI ANH not Obi ROTS

    like i said, i know thats not the ep3 saber... but the ep 4 is what it was based on, and the ep4 is BIGGER than the film used ep3.... yet the neck is TINY.

    and the ep3 FX is... not.

    The fat neck is a let down. But it glows very nicely and except from the fat neck it looks really nice. I might consider getting one.

    as much i'd prefer the correct shape-i've found that of all the fx sabers (i haven't used the maul) i'ved used-the luke rotj-even with the fat neck is by far the most comfortable. spins and twists are must easier to pull off without so much crap going on on the hilt.

    Yes that is VERY true..they are both VERY comfortable shile spining.
    The Luke weighs much less though.

    less? is that the LED or EL version, I still have my El going strong and a converted luxeon ROTJ fx's.

    perhaps the thicker blade walls are to blame for this extra weight, is the hilt noticably 'bigger' than the luke ROTJ when handling? is similar iin weight to the anakin?
