Neither of the Mace (AOTC or ROTS) have highly visible dark spots due to the extra diffuser. It's still there, just not a prevalent due to this factor. :)

Every FX-saber has a dark spot right in the center of the blade. It is where the 2 strips of LED's are soldered together. Although this is more visible on some sabers then others.

I was on the fence about getting this saber... Due to finances and that I had a Luke Jedi (2nd Gen), Luke ESB, and Vader ANH (1st Version). Then I saw that they were re-releasing the new version of the Mace. I went to EB (I think that was the store that was selling the newer ones, or GameStop... can't remember now). Anyway, they had three left, and I paced back and forth wondering if I should get it. I knew that there were improvements, and I had enough money, so I went ahead and bought one.

That was the longest ride home. I thought I made the biggest mistake, the wife would beat me with it, it would not live up to expectations, a big bill would arrive in the mail, etc.

I took it out and powered it up and she thought it was the best one I had. Loved the hilt and the color. I was never so relieved. The color was as clear, bright and even as all the ones I own. (Which, I should point out, all have different variances of distribution through the blades depending on lighting and how hard you really look at it, as you are all aware of. I just thought it was a great color and great sound. A very happy spontaneous purchase.

My Mace was my first FX.   I got it for fathers day this year after my wife got sick of me waffling over if I should spend money and get  a FX or not.  I don't have a noticable dark spot in my blade, but I don't have the red lines i read about here either.  This is the RoTS Mace FX, but I still think my blade is more of a lavender/blue then a true purple.

Not complaining.  I am going to do a full review of my collected items shortly, if people can stand another review!
