Anakin ROTS FX Lightsaber
« on: December 13, 2005, 08:16:36 AM »
I came across the Master Replica web page by accident and was amazed by the new standard of lightsabers. I had an old Luke Skywalker ROTJ saber (early 90's) that was a hologen flashlight bulb and the blade was a dime-sized dowel. The blade was a green tint. I wanted an Anakin ROTS in the worst way and saw the price tag. It seemed expensive and I remembered my old saber that was a disappointment. By luck the local mall had a Game Stop store in it and I saw a bunch of them in boxes. I asked the employee if he saw one in action. He stated that he owned one as well as his friends and in his mind it was worth the price. I took a chance and was blown away by the FX audio/visual. It was well worth the money spent. I'm going to start a collection. I urge the person who is desiding to get a FX saber, but is skeptical of the cost to take that leap of faith and buy it. Of course, shop around for a good price. Check your local Game Stop, Software Etc, or Babbages and ask..............Or you can go Hasbro..lol.

Well like they always say if you can pay then play, I think they are very affordable and the greatest StarWars toys created.

don't know if I would call them "affordable",  but they are well worth their price.   Especially when you take in to account the prices of other prop replicas.

I agree with Snoballz. While Force FX's aren't the most affordable things, they are definitely worth the price tag. I'd much rather spend money on these than the limited edition replicas that reflect what Lucasfilm can crank out cheaply at anytime in their little prop factory. ;) Not to say they aren't cool, because they are. But without the blade, a lightsaber just isn't the same. :)

Well I mean I can afford them, I am sorry that I didnt take into account that some have to scrap and save to buy things if I could I would be every member in here a Fx for Christmas but I am not that rich and my wife would kill me lol, but everyone agrees that these are way better than the limted edition hilts.

A nice lightsaber is the ultimate star wars treat for a fan.

No wait, TWO nice lightsabers are the ultimate star wars treat for a fan.

I am suspecting my Anakin ROTS could actually be Anakin AOTC because it looks darker and concentrated with blue than the one from the review pictures. Do any of you have a way to determine as to whether it is Anakin ROTS or Anakin AOTC?

If the Anakin is almost same the hilt as the Vader ANH then yeah you have the Anakin AOTC, does it have the power up and power down sequence?

Yes, it does have the power up and down effects, and the hilt is exactly the same as Anakin ROTS, but as for the color on the blade, I don't know about it.

Then I think you have the Anakin ROTS saber, what is wrong with the color, it should be a somewhat deep blue color as where the Luke ESB is a some lighter than the Anakin
