I kinda feel the same. I'm thinking of getting a scond to convert with a metal blade holder like Ben said and go lux. Keep the one I have for display whic is basicaly all I do with my MR FX's. I Use my Fan built for spinging and smacking the little siths around. I wait and pick up an as-is one for $50.00 on the bay. I don't think it will take long.

Can anyone who has one post some pics?  Not interested in the production shots... but what folks have received :)

Never mind... found Louis's post.  Sorry!

Both of the earlier review threads (Kit's and mine) also have a whole bunch of pics.

its not really fair to compare a Corvette (MR) to a Ferrari Enzo (YODA)


YODA RULES!

Well said.  :)

Hmm, I wonder if this will be the most hated MR force fx ever?  :o

I'm not so sure, It might actually turn out to a very worthwhile purchase once it takes a little time to grow on others.

I'm actually looking into purchasing yet another... From Ultrasabers that is! in Sunrider's destiny!

I think that would be a major disservice in light of some of the other FXes that have been released, like the Ani AOTC and the Mace AOTC.

I remember for a while back in 2005 when a ton of people hated the ROTJ Luke rerelease just because it had a fat neck and they had expected MR to improve the style past the 2003 saber.

I really like my ANH Luke.   I took it outside about 15 minutes ago and had some fun with it.    ;D ;D

May The Force FX Be With You!

I hope to meet you someday and learn a few cool moves of the saber from a pro as yourself!! ;)

Not by a long shot - in my opinion.  But that depends on the saber you receive.  If it's heavy on the creaking, as many of them are, then it could go down as a very disliked FX.  But that aside: 

I think this is one of nicer sabers in the FX line, and it has too many plus points for it to be the most hated FX ever:

It's light (a definate plus for many people), it's accurately sized (although NOT an accurate graflex), it has a near-perfect clash sensor, and it's brighter than all the previous blue FXs.

Will it be the mosted hated FX ever?   Highly unlikely - as long as the blade is not plagued by excessive creaking.

Well, it's nice to hear that it's not that bad afterall, since the first feedbacks haven't been that glorious what I have read.

it has a near-perfect clash sensor...

clash sensors wear out with time.  most of my sabers started with really stiff clash sensors that were really hard to trigger. but now those same sabers will 'clash' when you're swinging at air. heh. (which isn'tall bad.  if you like deflecting imaginary blaster bolts) ;)

...it's brighter than all the previous blue FXs.

the brightest blade in my quiver is always the newest blade in my quiver.  thats because LED's have a 'breaking in' period and they "dim" over time with extended use.  so a brand new luke ANH will be brighter than a heavily used 2 year old anakin ROTS... this is true..   but by the same token..  a brand new anakin will (also) be brighter than a 2 year old heavily used luke ANH. (heh)

its no wonder that everyone always says "its SOOOO bright" when they get a new saber hehe (I do too). ;)

but I realised something was up when I got a new luke ROTJ a few weeks ago from brianstoys and it was BRIGHTER than my Yoda-FX!!!  ???
(even with new batteries in the Yoda.  my Yoda is getting "dimmer" over time)  :o
