Looks great.  I'm going to have to spring for the double.

Can't wait to see a side by side pic with Maul's TPM and Vader's ESB.

Like I said before this is the first Fx saber that has not generated any excitement in me after hearing a review, I have gotten over the sound issue, but I will wait until the price is discounted like all the other ones.  A better blade does tickle me

I'm done complaining too.  I'm just going to change the sounds out in mine.  You can tell a difference in the new blade from pictures.  I am excited about that.  They did do a really good job on the hilt.  I think all the buttons are aluminum.  The hilt is definitely high quality from what I've seen so far.  Go check out the Maul disassembly at Thecustomsabershop.  You can tell it is constructed well.

The guy said it's louder and more clear then Vader's so I'm sure it will be fine.  Maybe it's not exactly the same as Vader's but sounds real similar because it's another red one.

Is it just me, or does it look like it's brighter near the base of the blade than the rest of the way up like a luxeon?  :o

2010...I certainly hope it's better than 2009 was! ::)
10/10/10~Well, so far with my Father's passing away, I'd say that this year was actually worse than 2009, even the fact that I now have a full time job (For now) isn't anywhere near enough to make up for that...so...maybe 2011 will be better? I'm not holding my breath... ::)

I dont want to discuss again on sounds, for what I read almost all are deluded by the Vader sounds but still we need another FX :-)
About the color: I never see "orange" in my Vader, maybe some people must change the batteries... anyway no offense I want to see by myself when mine arrives.
Sound power...it's loud and two "out of sync" sabres may sound different from Vader ... but  until now no tests with the coupler, the small holes may reduce the volume a lot, again I want to wait and see, ops, hear by myself  ;)

I'll let you know on my progress on chenging the boards.  It shouldn't be too hard.  From what I know about the last gen sabers, the blades are interchangable, so everything else should be too.

No, we mean they look orange in the pictures even though they're red in front of us.
