I honestly think the ANH looks like garbage compared to the ESB.  :P

Your opinion of course.  One I don't agree with.

I don't like the ESB design and that's why I held off buying it.  I just hate the long grips for the ESB version but the wires I like for it.  To me the ANH version is much more perferred.

Aaahhh!!!! I just had to read this....oh well, it was very good. :)

BigT, the hilts looks smaller than the Anakin ROTS. Is this so?

The Vader ANH is a tiny bit smaller than the Anakin ROTS but not too bad.

Cyano here's the FX sabers I have now:

EL Sabers
Anakin Skywalker AOTC

LED Sabers
Luke Skywalker ESB
Luke Skywalker ROTJ
Anakin Skywalker ROTS
Mace Windu ROTS
Darth Maul TPM
Obi-Wan Kenobi ROTS
Darth Vader ANH

The last two I need to get this year is the Luke ANH and Yoda.

Edit: After I move I'm going to be cleaning off all my FX sabers and taking realy good single shots of them and I'll post them here on the forum. :)

Good review with lots of nice pictures =) I like how the pics of the blade actually came out red. I also really like the new packaging artwork as well.

But....this one's not for me. I can't justify having both the ESB and the ANH right now. Maybe someday though =)

But...ummm...Heimidal....you have two Graflex hilts, an Anakin and a Luke ESB, isn't that like four of almost the same thing? Come on man you have to have both Vaders!   ;D

Well robiwon.... I guess you're right about that one.....Although I kind of think that the Anakin ROTS and Luke ESB are WAY different so that doesn't count and as far as the Yoda Graflexs go...well it's not like I could really pass those up!

Now if Yoda would only make some MPPs.....

Maybe I can slip the Vader ANH under the wife's radar.

Thanks for the kind words fellas.

I honestly don't mind that it has the recyled sounds, but I got this saber because I've never had the Vader saber.  I don't plan on getting the ESB since as I have said before I'm not fond of the design except for the wires.

Great Review Big T.! :) This is one sweet looking saber. i only recently bought a Vader ESB so this saber is not a priority for me. I am awaiting my Yoda fx and considering getting another Ultrasaber (possibly a full maul with a blue blade), but who knows what the future will hold. :)
