Mace Windu FX vs LE
« on: April 24, 2006, 08:41:34 PM »
My Maul FX vs LE was so well received I decided to do another.  Since Darth Skywalker did such a nice job on his Anakin ROTS I figured the next one in need of such treatment was the Mace AOTC/ROTS.

The size difference is quite apparent, but I did shots switching foreground to confirm it.

Here you can see where the difference in most pronounced in the emitter and speaker ends.

The FX does indeed do a nice job with the details as you can see with the next two pics.

And finally this shot of the covertech clips shows the detail while still emphasizing the size difference as the clips are the exact same size.

Yes, it is a tragedy, but we have just learned that the Mace FX has been disqualified from all international competition for testing positive for performance enhancing substances.  Another tragic cautionary tale of steroid abuse.

Yes, and that performance enhancing substance/thing happened to be red tubing inside the blade, giving the lightsabera false solor of purple and therefore preventing it form entering any competition.

Not everyone likes all FX's, which I can relate to as the Maul just doesn't do anything for me.

I could never sell my Mace FX, I got it for free thanks to Amy and her Trivia Contests, lol.  :D

All the more reason for me to keep it.  :P

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... ::)

The size difference is pronounced but I think they did a good job of making it look proportional, something that can be easily overlooked.
