So does this one have the same sounds as the others....or is it different? I wish they didn't all sound exactlly the same.

Some have different sounds... I just got an Anakin ROTS, and it sounds very different from my Vader ESB (and both sound different from the Anakin AOTC i had a while back, if i remember correctly). I do remember reading that the Vader and Maul have the same sounds though... Maybe they keep the same sounds for sabers of like colors?

The Mace Windu one soudns different from all the others. I only own the Vader ESB one but I have tried the Windu and Anakin at TRU and they sound different to me.

Is it me or did they manage to reduce the size of the nape (unlike to Luke ROTJ)?

Yeah, the neck is goofy just like the ROTJ Luke. I saw pics of it from some con. Toy-something or Comic-something. Oh hell, I can't remember.

Gone but not forgotten.
They showed the pommel end in the pic to draw the eye away from the thick neck on the saber...
Here's a pic.

I actually think the Hasbro one is better proportioned.

I agree...Now, if they wouln't have done that stupid Force vibrate flashy thing to it...
it turned a cool toy that I was looking forward to playing with into one I NEVER use.
In fact, I tore it apart and managed to get the vibrating motor out of it,
but not the flash on impact "feature". :angry

I don't like it either, but they did what they could with in the limitations of the product. They have to have room for electronics, structural support for the blade, mass production, and come in at $120 with profit margin figured in. Perhaps they shouldn't have attemted it considering those limitations. Obviously they felt it would sell enough to make the investment worth it. The market will tell.

If you are looking for something accurate to the movie prop, then you shouldn't be looking at the FX line to begin with. That's what the Limited Editions are for.

yes but i have an ep3 anakin, and while the REAL ep3 ani hilt was smaller than a graflex, the FX is almost the exact size of a graflex, which makes more sense...

have you held an ep5 vader???

its VERY close in EVERY way to the real prop. (as much as a plastic FX can be)

the ROTS obi and luke ROTJ, are VERY poor choices period.

you cant tell me that they couldnt make an ep2 obi VERY close proportionately to the prop... at least a LOT closer than they can an ep3 obi. there is really no room for debate IMHO that thing just looks horrid.

Sure those others are just about correctly porportioned...but the blade has to work within the neck, or it'd break off...
I don't love the look either...but at least they made something.
Some just want this to play with...

I don't have either of those two you mentioned (Luke , Obi) for just that reason, but there are some who love theirs regardless of that "one" flaw.

I'm sure they'll do the Ep 2 eventually.
