I've noticed from reading various reviews of the Anakin ROTS saber that there tends to be a large number of variations in saber quality.

Some people say their blades wobble, sometimes the lights are too dull or riddled with black spots or in some cases the sound is poor or too grating.

Master replicas must make dodgy sabers in batches because my Anakin saber is pretty much perfect: great sound, bright blue blade and the blade doesn't wobble!

Anyhoo, I agree with your review and would also recommend this saber to any first timer. I bought mine before Chrimbo for £85.99. Come New Year, Borders started selling them for £59.99... so I went out and bought Vader's and Luke's. It's a shame they don't sell Mace's, because then I'd have one of each colour!

I'm always cautious about buying online, I've had my fingers burned in the past and there are no guarantees that your order will be in prisine condition upon arrival.

I have seen the Mace saber in Forbidden Planet in Shaftsbury Ave. London, but the price mark-up made my eyes pop out!

I guess I'm just an old-school shopper who likes to handle the goods in store before deciding to buy or not!!!

last time I browsed firebox I saw they are selling the entire 2005 series (three sabres) at a (little) less than 200£
for UK people may be a decent price, I dunno'

yes thats true Gio not bad at all really. 

they had run out of anakins a while ago though, they have no anakins in at the moment.    play.com have some instock if anyone is looking here.

ps the pound sign goes infront of the amount unlike the euro ;)

mine as I said to Yoda has the prong slightly wobbling, no problem with blade or sounds but...
 I noticed the on/off switch is very lame and the gold start to disappear after a month or less
a must have anyway
my two cents

If the sound suddenly gets really staticy and soft then just take the batteries in and out, that'll fix it.
