So who here has the force FX Lightsabers from MR (Master Replicas)?
I had the old Anakin AOTC FX Lightsaber but upon taking it apart I accidently fucked it up some how and the saber became useless.
I recently bought the full double bladed Darth Maul FX Lightsaber and holy shit..talk about beautiful. One thing I've always wanted in the time I was in the prop collecting business was a fully lightable Darth Maul saber and I for one was glad when MR announced they were releasing one. The two sabers join together on a coupler which I damaged mine because I got the two halfs too tight on the coupler when I was aligning the knobs straight and I couldn't get them off. It took a pair of plyers (not the pointy nosed ones) to hold the coupler in place and give each saber ends enough twist to pry them off.
I have managed though to get a replacement coupler thanks to a friend of mine. Next time I will have my dad help me put the damn thing together so I don't fuck it up again. Oh I will point out that I was disappointed to the fact they reused the sounds from the Vader ESB hilt for this hilt. A lot of people (including myself) were hoping they would have used the actual Maul lightsaber sound files from the film for this saber.
I also bought the Anakin Episode III FX Lightsaber. Holy shit...words alone cannot describe the sheery beauty of this lightsaber. I've seen a lot of pictures of it's Limited Edition counter part and they got every detail perfect on the FX Lightsaber, just like the Maul. The brightness of the blade is out standing. I even took it in my bathroom to see what it would look like in a complete dark room and I was blown away how bright it was and how it completely light up the room. The weight distrabution for this lightsaber is also a lot better than one of the single bladed Maul FX ones, as far as twirling it in a hand goes. I actually love this lightsaber more than the Maul FX.
So again who here has the FX sabers and which ones do you have?
Edit: If anyone was wondering I am 25 and yes I still live with my parents (hey cheaper rent).
