I think those extra knobs can just screw off, it would make dueling with it more comfortable. And when you're done you could just put them back on. ;)

You can also add the coupler to the hilt to make it a little longer as well, BTW.

If I ever do get one, it will probably be the full-sized version and I'd have it converted so I could have just one blade in it w/ the full hilt like Darth Maul did against Qui-Gon on Tatoonie.

Same here Joclad, if I ever got a Maul i'd have mine converted so I could have the one blade full hilt option.

so where does the "battle-damaged" aspect of this saber come into play? None of the pictures (anywhere) seem to really show it. Nice review btw. And are you SURE Lord Sidious crafted it? I'd always heard Maul did it himself (as most Jedi and Sith tend to do.)

The battle damage refers to one half of the saber. When Qui-Gon cut the saber in half, it was "battle damaged". A double Maul saber, if unscrewed into two parts, gives you two "battle damaged" sabers.  ;)

Another thing that shows the "battle damaged" aspect other than there being the maul saber split in half is to take a look at one of the pommels when it's in a single bladed status. You will see burnt copper wires and an exposed red crystal, this is to show that a lightsaber split the bad boy right in the middle where the red crystal is.

Heh, it was far from a dumb question. Everything on the single saber looked perfect except the pommel. It just looked like maul just unscrewed one half. I wondered the same thing until I saw pictures from all angles.  ;)

yeah im pretty sure sidious crafted it by what it says on the box XD

If you're talking about the part that says "forged as a weapon of hate," that's actually referring to Maul himself.

um correct me if im wrong but didn't Obi Wan cut it in half?

I think the only difference bettween the battle damaged replica and the one in the film is the mr fx replica has a straight cut (for obvious reasons) and there was a slight angle on the cut in the film ))<===/    /===>((  ;)
