Ok. This is my first review of a force fx lightsaber. Sorry that pics will not be invovled because i do not have a digital camra.
I have always wanted a Luke AHN Forcr Fx LightSaber to go with my Vader ESb. I have wanted one since it came out, but never had the money. then came Christmas of 2007. My mom does not see what i and you see with these. My dad does since he greow up with star wars. He got me one for Chirstmas and for the rst of the day i could not put it down.
I like the way Mr had Designed the box to it. It looks more sleeker than the Vader ESB. I like how it looks like the saber is on glass or somthing like that. when i first saw the box in stores i always thought it look smaller, but it eneded up being th same size as the Vader ESB. Overall i like the box.
Saber out of Box: 10/10
i was impressed with the saber when i first held it in my hands w/ the cold metal feel of the hilt. This is the first time i actully for the first time have a replica of my favorite hilt of the star wars saga. I was Happy with first impression.
The aluminum hilt is a plus since fingerprints don't show up as much as they did on my Vader ESB. I do agree that the hilt is very Graflex like. It has the accurate Graflex look and feel. I am happy about the fell if the hilt. I had read that after a while that the saber tends to feel plastic like. I DO NOT AGREE WITH THAT. I aslo do not Mined that the glass eye (in this case plasic eye) and the red button being plastic, but i do mind the emmiter ring that holds the blade being plastic. I go to the MR FX's to get away from the plastic. It makes the hilt just a tad toyish. Other than that i loved the hilt.
My Luke saber does creek, but i do not mind that since i do not duel with it. I love the brighteness of the blade. It is brighter than my Vader ESB. The LED lights are well fused together and has a little less black spots than my Vader ESB. The up and down effects are a trillion tmes smother than the Vader ESB. Overall I liked the blade and the blade light.
The sounds are just amazing. Since this is my first Jedi FX Lightsaber i had never heard these recycled sounds before. I like how the saber has more than one clash sound than the Vader ESB had. I love the Humming sound. I can not spot the overlapping of the hummung sound, but i did with the Vader ESB. sound was a lot louder. I loved the saber sounds.
Overall i loved this saber and i can not put it down. MY favorite hilt design ever.
P.S. as you could notice throughout the review that the only Fx i had to copmare the Luke AHN to was The Vader ESB.
