I'm not dissing the Luke ESB by any stretch here but I will say one thing: It is an older gen saber and the hilt is a bit oversized. The Anakin is actually truer to the size of the original graflex tubes than the Luke ESB is. It's awesome but not quite perfect.

Please don't throw things at me :'(

I think you hit it right on the head.  I don't think anything chips off on the Anakin (unless you try to chip it off), but the gold and chrome effects will all rub right off if you use it too much.

Ah but the higher weight of the Luke ESB seems to add to the realism of the hilt.  It feels like a .380 versus a .44 Magnum.

I rate the Luke ESB the second lowest on the saber shelf, besides the ROTJ Luke. I am sorry, but both Luke ESBs I've owned have had MAJOR LED problems. One was from duel. (My faulty, BIG time) However, the second one I owned, got it 2 months ago (Factory sealed from MR) and the lights went out on it last week. Never was turned on much and never was stricken by another blade. Sorry, but 2 thumbs WAY down for this puppy. (Remember, this comes from two evaluations of the saber) :(

Some bad luck I would say :-\, but does it still make it the lowest of your sabers. Which sabers do you own and how would you rate all the available sabers? I'm really interested which one is the best in your opinion?

Yes, at the moment, it does. We shall see with the new one. If it is good, then I will repair the old one (Maybe with a stronger tube from customsabers and sodder the disconnected LEDs) and that will be up in the air as to it's fate.

I own 1 Anakin AOTC, 1 Vader ANH, 1 Luke ESB, 2 Vader ESBs, 1 Anakin ROTS, 2 Luke ROTJs, 1 Mace ROTS.......with 1 Luke ESB, 1 Mace AOTC, 1 Anakin ROTS, 1 Vader ESB and 1 Mace ROTS on the way. Unsure as to what will become the extras at the moment. May put them up for sale later on, in a few years or....... :-\
