    Who needs ILM? Just turn off the lights! [​IMG]

    They came out a little blurred, but the saber itself shocked me when I saw the pics...

    I had decided not to get one, but that does look "real" in the dark.

    Jedi Howie and Janie will kick your butt. [​IMG] Those things are amazing. If you saw any of the Big Brother season you saw they took quite a beating and made for fantastic shows in the dark.

    I saw that, Joseph, Howie and Janelle were killing me by clashing them together like that LOL. I was saying to the screen "My God, man don't play with them like that, your going to break them!"

    BTW, that pic that was taken with the flash doesn't do it justice, the saber looks great in almost any lighting. But at night...my Lord.

    I too have MR lightsabers. I bought a Vader Ep V, and an Anakin Ep III.

    They do look pretty sweet in the dark [​IMG]

    Sweet. [​IMG] I also have the Vader one, and I plan on picking up Luke's saber from EP VI and Mace Windu's from EP II.

    John, I too want a Mace Windu saber, but haven't been able to find one that wasn't going for way higher than RRP.

    Don, I bought my two off Ebay. The shipping from MR.com or StarWars Shop is around $60-80 US. From Ebay, the shipping was more like $30 US.

    I got mine from Spencer Gifts at the mall for $99.99 each.

    Tim,
    i'm hoping to catch a store that actually has the Mace saber, according to MR these sabers aren't limited editions (save for the Luke EP IV saber), so i'm going to be patient, Spencer Gifts knows that his is out there and i've been told that they're trying to get them in.

    Nice photos John. Personally, the only one I'm interested in is the Mace Windu sabre.....I really like the style of the hilt for that one- plus, he was my favourite character in the series. Unfortunately, the sabres go for $159 Cdn up here at the local Best Buy/Future Shop stores.....not ready to pay that kind of price for one. [​IMG]

    Don't forget, Borders has an exclusive ROTJ Luke saber (green) which is WAY better than the older one from a year or two ago.

    I also just got a re-release of the purple Mace Windu one from Gamestop. 89.99. Its box says 2005 so I have to imagine it's a redo. I had heard the original Mace one had a larger than average hilt. The one I got is the same rough size as my other three. I love these things!

    A guy I know told me he thought he read about MR doing a Darth Maul one. Obviously that's hearsay, but I don't see how they could lose. Sure, they'd presumably have to charge 2x the normal cost, but I would buy it in a second. I imagine it would have to come in two pieces. I would also love to get a Dooku, Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon and Sidious.

    One thing I find weird, the blue and red ones only take 3 AA batteries, but the green and pruple need 6. I'm thinking the green and purple colors are harder to produce. Anyone have any guesses on this?
