Review

When my Yoda Fx came I was surprised that the box was full size,that was my first impression.
They just added more foam to the ends..(same wall stand too)
As I opened I liked the new box design,and the Adverts for the other 2007 Force Fx inside the box lineing..

When I finally open it up and held it ,I was surprised how good it felt in my hand for such a small size..

*Specs*
The saber is just under 34 inches total
The blade is 26 1/2 inches
The Hilt is 7inches (8 inches if you count the emitter cuff)

I originally was little yet down when MR announced the Yoda last year.( I wanted a Oui-Gon)
I am all about the martial arts aspect of lightsaber and saber spins,and I though it would be useless for spins.

But I was wrong,once you get use to it it spins just fine..
It`s a nice change up,I plan to get another Yoda for duel saber spins,no more scraping the room in my apt hehe..


Well the hilt feels Really sold and the craftsmanship it superb,looks like a LE hilt to me..
The blade is skinner then all the other Force Fx but they still somehow managed to cram all 64 leds into it..
Its takes 3 AAA battery's just like the Darth Maul
Speaking of the green LEDS,the are SUPER bright,this is the brightest saber MR has produced,and it don`t stop there,its also the LOUDEST..
The blade also seems SUPER strong ,even though its skinny,it really can take a beating.
The blade is SOLID green,not a dark spot in sight,and at a little over 2 feet the Yoda makes for a great shoto saber.
The motion detections of the saber swings are the best yet of any MR saber,it is very on point.
MR has expanded the electronics very well..
The sounds are the same Jedi sounds as all there other Jedi sabers,just much louder,and due to the shape of the hilt it actually sounds a little different.



It rocks the same Jedi sounds as the other MR Jedi FFx,but it sounds a little different to me,as you will see when you watch my video review compared to the Anakin and Luke Fx..

Don`t think this saber is just for your young lings because of its size,it is a fully functional Force Fx lightsaber we all will enjoy..

Awesome pics.  I went to the thread on the other forum and for the video it says, "This video is no longer available".

You guys have no idea just how hard it was to do this video today.
the forces of nature where against me..

First I had to go up to my managements office 3 different time,as there where not there,showing apartments or something..


Then I finally get the Yoda and I was out of mini dv tapes.
So once I get the tapes and start recording,but my cam keeps stopping and eating my tape ..

Then I finally get all the footage and my cam wont play any more,all it will do it eat tapes..
So I let the can rest for about 30 min and try it again.
First it ate the tape again,but then it started playin back..

So I run to my pc to capture the video and right b4 the video ends the battery goes dead and I have to capture it again..
Well It took me 4 trys to capture it,my Pc blue screened 3 times..

Then finally I got all the footage in my pc and go to arrange the time line and it keeps freezing up..
Well 3 blue screens and 6 pc spontaneous reboots I finally got it..
I have to latterly save every step it was crashing so much..

I don`y know how I'm going to film my combat trials video,my Dv cam is on its last leg..
I might have to hurry up and sell my Yoda b4 MR gets um in stock to finance a new Mini Dv cam
I can live without a Dv cam..

What a frigen day..

Well, we appreciate the video and the effort that went into showing us this badass Yoda saber. I can't wait until I get mine in the mail. I'm salvating at the thought.

Wow, Mr. Kit, I'm sorry to hear about that. I'm really glad to see the video, I know you just made 100 plus members here change there mind about getting a Yoda. Some times scarifices must be made for the better. Thank you for making this vid.

Awesome video review Kit, you did an excellent job.

You should be the official MR reviewer  ;)

I just got mine today and I'm impressed with it. I have compared it with all my Force FX's and the Yoda FX sure is more comfortable and easy to make spins around the house without having to hit the cieling. What I really like about it, it's so bright even at daylight. The brightest blade I've seen from MR. The sounds I can live with it, wish they had different to match Yoda's but overall it's a really well produced collective.
