Obi Wan for Christmas
« on: December 25, 2006, 08:02:17 PM »
only a short review because I want to play with it more :) ;D :)

Definitely the best saber MR has made to date.

Feels solid

Looks solid

Flawless

I love it

I agree with you completely. It is the best FX ever made thus far, IMHO.

That may change though when MR releases their new sabers this year though. If they have the true movie accurate sounds that they claim they will, then I see the Obi-Wan being surpassed.

But that is a good thing as I want the sabers to get better and better with each new year.

Enjoy your Obi-Wan, I know that I love mine.

BTW, it makes your Anakin's blade look like crap, doesn't it?  ;D

2010...I certainly hope it's better than 2009 was! ::)
10/10/10~Well, so far with my Father's passing away, I'd say that this year was actually worse than 2009, even the fact that I now have a full time job (For now) isn't anywhere near enough to make up for that...so...maybe 2011 will be better? I'm not holding my breath... ::)

Hmm, well I didn't want to start a new thread so I guess I'll ask here if that's okay. I just got my obi and their is a slight problem on the craftsmanship. The switchbox is slightly tilted. Not much, but it is very noticable. Does anyone know how to loosen the switchbox, move it straight, and tighten it again?

By the way, I like the nice short review  :)

It's the brightest MR yet IMO. Brighter than Luke ROTJ.

I know, everywhere I look people are raving about it and I just can't decide between that or upgrading my Luke to a ROTJ Hero.
Bah, this addiction is a gift and a curse!

I would call MR and get them to send you a new one rather than mess with it.

Yes, the Obi is the best so far.  Definately brightest, loudest and much more evenly lit than the others.

I would hold off an upgrading your Luke ROTJ for a while... no one knows what MR's plans are, but I for one am hoping the re-release the ROTJ saber; if they are going to do movie-accurate sounds, the ROTJ saber would be the best to do, since it's most distinctive.

Also, the hilt for the current ROTJ is probably the worst - lots of plastic and it just feels like a cheap toy compared to the others (especially the Obi).

Since the ROTJ was never in wide release, I'm hoping MR gives this saber a much-needed upgrade.

Reguardless, it will still be made out of Aluminum, unless they decide to go chrome this time around. And it will still have the fat neck as well.

But...if they came out with another with the REAL sounds for it, I would buy it in a heartbeat!  :D
