At last, I've got it! It was really difficult from France, but finally, the franch "lucasfilm magazine" they just proposed it in the mail orders section! Wow! Plus, I could save extra manoy because of my SW Fan club membership. Great!
So, only 3 days after sending them my order, I get into my mailbox!!!
To be honest, I ordered it because I want it in my collection, and because it was the very last fx made by MR
... And a strange one, almost came from nowhere, and, unexpected till the end... Came out like a rabbit from a hat.
So, when I was about to open the box, I really wasn't expecting so much thing from this FX. I thought apart myself, since a long time, that it as to looks toyish, with plastic parts. Like, here, not too many people seems to like it either, I wasn't really hoping a masterpiece of course!
AND... It isn't in fact! Ha ha ha, I not a masterpiece, but, I do admit, maybe because I wasn'it expected a thing about it, but I was reaally pretty well surprised in fact!
A lot of stuff in the box, and a lot of combination to make the Lightsaber YOU want! there is more than 2000 different type of sabers you can make with it!
3 grips parts
3 activation box
3 top parts
a lot of attachs-clips
and of course 3 blades colours
It's amazing! Imagine, if every FSX-Sabers members had one, it could be possible that no one had the same one!!! Awesome!
So, about the parts... SOme of them looks really cheap, and toyish...But some others are, well, let'say:"okidoki". Not thrilling, but cool.
The best parts are really the metals parts: Pommels, and emitter . And One thing that surprised me the most was that those parts aren't just some "redo" of those existing! One looks like obi emitter, but it's NOIT the obi emitter ! It's the same for the rest of emitters and pommel! The nicest pommel, IMO, is the one that looks like Luke Rotj one. But it's really smaller.
The blade is the stronger one of every FX I have. Stronger than Obi. I guess this is because it is shorter too!
The other point that surpised me was th intensity of the blade when I ignite it the first time! It's not as bright than a luxeon, but man, it's brighter in the bottom, near the emitter than every other FX, even with fresh batteries!
And it has ignition/rectraction effect too!!
The other good point is that you get an all new/never seen activation boxx, and a really good one to spin and figth with! Because it's a small circle push button that you cannot activate when your hand goes on it! The only way is to push it with one finger. At last, one FX that not switch off when you spin, or fight!
Talking about fight...For the first time, you don't have to be scare of breaking any leds in the strip !
So, I do have to admit that the "strange FX" surprised me in a GOOD way! It's really fun to try some mix and try to make an FX you like...
Hey dude, you're doing YOUR FX!!! Really cool!
In fact some parts could be used for some luxeon homemade lightsabers too! That's a good point too!
The sounds now..The loudder I've ever heard!!! Differents if you choose the red blade, or the blue/green blades.
So, in conclusion, this UFO FX isn't the nicest one, no doubt! It's the cheapest one, becasue the one that get the more plastic parts on it...But hey, it's the funnier I've ever had, And the better one to...FIGHT with!!!
Like Gayven, It's not my favorite, but I'm glad to have it in my collection.
