Today is a day that nearly killed me. After growing attached to the saber, I had to let it go up to the Great White North.

I shall mourn it not, or miss it not, for soon shall I have another. My pseudo-graflex has begun it's journey to it's new master.

I so know what you mean, Ben.   We've waited so long to see a close facsimile of the saber we saw so long ago on a theater screen.   I've gone from a cardboard wrapping paper tube to the MR FFX and it has been a wild ride throughout.
Thanks for the comments on my review.  Yours was so well done and with a lot of feeling.  Sometimes I think that I shouldn't do a review because so many people have already done them for the certain sabers. But, I just kept doing them to show people how I see the saber in my own eyes.

May The Force FX Be With You!

stinks that you had to send it off. but you shall soon be reunited with an old friend with new trappings!  Then you'll be even more pleased.

FedEx just left and I ripped it open.  Thank you  jedi_bailinski that was fast shipping.  Did not expect it until next week!  Not nearly as bad as what I was expecting.  Now it does squeak and creak like my grandma's rocker.  Not only does the noise come from the plastic around the blade but my glass eye on the bottom shouts out also.  The eye and the button are both terrible.  My other FXs squeak a tad but nothing like this saber.  I really kinda like it for all of its faults. :-[  For 90.00 not bad at all.  I believe enough has been said correctly about the bunny ears.  I am disappointed in that but happy there are seven grips.  It is light but metal.  I have the heavy and light Anakin ROTS and this is way lighter.  I am definitely going to pick up another just to have and display with my ESB, ROTJ, and Anakin ROTS.  This one is waiting for a conversion kit from Tim at TCSS when available.

Thanks!

Greg

Great review, Anakin. Way to go out with a bang.  :)

I haven't yet picked up the Vader ANH or Luke ANH, but I'm considering getting one of them from Toys 'R' Us on Friday. I do want both, of course, but I can only get one for the time being. I'm just trying to figure out which one to go with.

Nice Clone Wars quote Lord Tyranus. I was at Disneyland over the weekend and when I got off of Star Tours I saw this saber in the gift shop for $180! I asked to hold it anyway. I was favorably impressed. I'll be picking this one up. Does Ultra offer a lux conversion for this yet? I need to pick a color. Cyan,blue,green or white?

Yes it does look purplish in the photos.  I don't know why that is happening.   That is just the way my camera is picking it up in the dark.  Its not like I used a cheap camera either, its my Canon EOS Rebel XTi.  No matter how many times I took the shot, the ones that were in normal room lighting appeared to be purple.   ah well.  hahah
