You should be warned that your FX will look like some combination of the two pictures (in case you weren't aware).  You can see the purple color and splotches, but you won't get the white core like in the second picture.  And it will be brighter than in the first picture.

I'm not too sure about getting this saber... it doesn't seem to fit my tastes that much.... i saw one in person at Frank and Sons Collectible Toy Show, but it didn't impress me much......

Why were purple LED's too expensive to buy??? The blotchiness shows a lot more clearly in this blade than in my other ones.... and i only held the blade for a short time.... However, since this is the only other blade out that's readily available, i might have to feed my FX saber addiction and get one anyways, despite my dislikes of it...

My Mace I think has a nice purple color to it and you can see the LEDS strung up the blade like the Vader ESB but only slightly.

Really,

There is not much blotchiness. IT's the same as every other blade.

Purple LEDs are too expensive since red, blue, and green LEDs can be bought at a much higher discount than purple LEDs; not to mention that MR already had blue ones available, so it was easier (and cheaper) for them to use blue LEDs with red foam than to go and purchase purple LEDs.

The Mace shows blotches more easily simply because it uses foam that's been painted red to give the purple color, which doesn't look nearly as nice and uniform as if it were just blue or red LEDs.  You can also make out the lines of red along the foam, so that certainly doesn't help the blotchiness.

I happen to love my Mace, but I understand it's not for everyone.  However, the Anakin ROTS and Vader ESB should be more readily available than the Mace now, so you can go down that road if you don't like the Mace.  Just don't go and buy a lightsaber even if you don't like it; because then, you're missing out on 64.35% of the magic of an FX. ;)

i see i see... is there a difference in other people's light sabers?? when i saw a Mace in person... at glance the blade is light purple... but anytime you take a closer look at any FX saber... u can see the LED rings... and on the Mace i could see the blue and the red seperately....

maybe it was just my mind telling that i see blue and red since i knew that's how the purple was made.... So yea.... if i don't look too closely at the blade.... i like it....

Yeah, that's about right on for the Mace.  It looks light purple from a distance, but up close, you can see the blue and red separately.  It can be a little disconcerting to see the red and blue when all the other sabers are solid single colors.  The purple is pretty nice, but like I said before, don't buy the Mace if you don't feel really excited about it.  That is, unless you're trying to collect all the FXs, in which case, buy the Mace! ;)

I'm planning to get one soon and I don't think it won't bother me with the difference of the LEDs as long as it works perfect. I first gotta get Luke ESB then I'll get the rest. Good review though, it's always good to know.

Greetings from Holland.

Can someone tell me, if the batteries less twice as long as in the Vader ESB or Anakin ROTS, because the Mace ROTS has Vader equipment now and has six batteries instead of three as in the Vader?

I find that the 6 battery saber last as long as the 3 battery sabers depedning on what batteries you use
