*Luke TESB Reveiw + Anakin and Luke Comparison!*
« on: November 12, 2005, 09:35:39 AM »
Well as I promised here is my Reveiw for the Luke TESB + The Luke and Ani Comparison.

The Introduction
I have always wanted the Luke TESB since I saw the reveiw for Bandit Jedi's Luke.
I fell in love with that saber but never really could get it but finally one day I went on ebay stood awake
till 5 A.M bidding on it for $180 I got it never opened sealed. I thought it was a Rip at first but when I opened
the box I just sat there drooling over it, it's my favorite fx-saber and MR will never produce something this good.
Well now let's get to the review!

The Hilt
The Hilt is just amazing, Unlike the other sabers the hilt doesn't have cheap paint that will rub off on it.
The way it's designed, it's so realistic so lifelike, you actually feel like it's a REAL lightsaber.
But too bad I can't kill any Wampas with it! So in All I give the hilt a 10/10
People say the Hilt is big but It seems fine to me, and you just have to love that on and off switch.
As Bandit said yes it is very easy to hit when you just pick it up you may turn it on but I love the concept on it.

The BLADE
The Blade is very bright and unique I love how it is and how it shines.
The blade just makes you even feel better about buying the Luke TESB
It's shade of blue is really nice too.

The Sound
The Sound is the only problem, it's too low.
But I mean it atleast still has sound the sound may be crap.
But how it looks makes up for it. So the only flaw about the Luke TESB
is the sound.

The OVERALL
The overall of the Luke TESB I think it's the BEST FX SABER.
MR did a great job on it, If only the sounds were Louder.
I would have to still give it a 10/10 I dont care about the sound.
It's the look the feel the blade! Everything that it has!
I think it's a great buy.

The COMPARISON
AND Now What you have all been waiting for
The Luke TESB and the Anakin ROTS FX COMPARISON!
Everyone has been asking which one is brighter?
Well here is the deal which one is brighter is both,
They both have a different shade of blue The Luke TESB
has a Brighter and Shining! Shade of blue which resembles to the movie.
The Anakin is a Darker shade of blue and so It's really not easy to say which one is brighter.
They both have a different shade of blue so can't really decide.
The Hilt on the Anakin Looks like a Toy Compared to the Luke ESB.
I hate how the paint wears off. The Graflex Style Hilt rules that.
The Sounds on the Anakin Destroy the sounds of the Luke TESB.
How the Ani sounds compared the the Luke TESB will blow your mind.
My ears are sensitive from the Ani because I fire up my Luke TESB and it's a low sound.
But then when I turn on the Ani BAM my ears have blown up.
People say that the Anakin is better because of less batteries
*XXXX* Wrong The Anakin feels so light because of that.
The Luke TESB Feels so nice and Heavy compared to the Anakin.
So In all I would say the Luke TESB Because of the Graflex style hilt.
The Blade Color and How realistic and nice it feels.

And now for some nice pictures!

It's not you.

The Anakin is a TAD bit darker. I still think  they are equally bright, but I prefer the ESB Luke over the Anakin anyday because the hilt doesen't look weird.

Yes, very very nice pics.

I like how you compared the 2. I agree the Luke ESB hilt looks more like an advanced Star Wars saber whereas the Anakin looks kind of like a toy.

I someday hope to be a Luke Owner myself,
These reviews just keep pushing me in the right direction :)

Count dooku-

Yes, it is a wise decision to buy a Luke ESB. They will eventually get rarer and rarer. It will probably cost you over 300 bucks next year if you don't snag one now.

Glad to see the ESB looking so good Vader!

The Luke ESB sure is a great FX, with its proper OT blue blade and the graflex look, very nice indeed.
