Yep, most were hoping for the ultimate lightsaber and we got the typical MR lightsaber. That's not a bad thing though, it was just below most evryones expectations. But once people had it and played with it they realized that it was a pretty good saber. When you get one make sure you check for crooked blade and emitter creak. From what I have seen a lot of early ones had these problems. Mine has no creak and a straight blade. Are you going to get one online or store bought?
