The galaxy's edge Rey Saber seems kind of lame and has the same flaws the others do. If I was interested in buying a toy version (or any version really) of her saber at bare minimum I'd want one that was more screen accurate with an activation switch that actually worked as her's did. Hopefully Hasbro's will at least have that function. I feel like the Black Series could be much much better than what it is. Was not very impressed with the Revan or Darth Sidious.
ADVANCED LIGHTS WITH SOUND EFFECTS: Combining advanced LEDs and entertainment-inspired Lightsaber sound effects, the Force FX Elite Lightsaber is the most realistic Force FX Lightsaber yet THREE-COLOR-CHANGING BLADE: Select between blue, green, or yellow-green blade colors with the first-ever...
I received the Ahsoka saber. Maybe it's just mine but there is a split second delay on the clash and blaster deflect effects. The secondary button is finicky. To change the blade color, you're supposed to hold both the power and secondary button. Sometimes it will change color without holding the power button. Other times I'll hold both and it just does the melting effect.
I got the Ahsoka a couple weeks ago. I like it. I don't really need all the extra effects. I'm happy with the old standards. The crystal is interesting but too high maintenance to get all the color changes. I'd rather they just did an interesting blade plug. The process for removing the blade is a pain but I figure they wanted to come up with a way that would ensure any accidental ejection of the blade when swinging so I can deal with that as it is nice to have the removable blades offered again.
So there's been 2 new videos on youtube this week of people who have received the Darksaber in Asia. I just saw someone on Facebook receive it. But all retailers are still showing approximately October for the release date.
