Anakin ROTS Review/Story
« on: January 11, 2006, 06:02:16 PM »
Hey this is my very first review on this site and I must say I'm glad to be here!  :o

How it all began: Before I ever heard of Master Replicas I used the plastic hasbro lightsabers which , no offense to Hasbro, sucked. Until exactly 2 Christmases(?) ago my cousin turned me to the Master Replicas site. And I thought "thanks for showing me something I can never have!" :'(  But as Episode III came closer and closer I got more and more upsest. Then I went to the midnight showing of the movie I finally got to hold an Anakin ROTS FX lightsaber! I also was able show my dad how cool it was. Which was just the begining of buttering him up. Then after my birthday rolled around and there was no lightsaber I gave up hope and was left to sit staring at the lightsaber on my computer screen.  :'(

A New Hope: It was now November and I had givin up all hope of ever owning a Force FX lightsaber, but then my brother wanted an iPod (don't worry it'll all make sense later) so I decided why not go with to Best Buy. While I was browsing I saw a long black box box with a very familiar logo on it. Thats right it was an Anakin ROTS lightsaber.  :o My heart lept with excitment even more when one of the employees handed my the lightsaber... I was hooked again. So I dragged my mom down to  best buy to  show her how awesome it was. As she looked at it I casually slipped in "hey mom. You know Christmas is coming up." Then came music to my ears " Do you really want it?" I was in!

Judgement Day: 8:30 AM December 25, 2005: I ran to look under the tree and  :D  ;D :D  :o there it was! A long skinny beautifully wrapped box. When it was my turn to open my gifts (we take turns opening presents in my house) I ripped it open and there was the most beautiful box ever. After I cut the tape on the box, gently lifted the cover, pulled the saber out of the plastic bag I savored every moment as I let the cool, shinny, polished handle into my hands. It was perfect!!!!!!!! But not perfect enough. I gently set the saber down on the living room couch and dashed to get the 3 AA batteries I was saving. After I unscrewed the bottom cap slid the battery compartment out and carefully fitted the batteries to their correct polarities then reversed the begining process and slid the igniter switch on. I watched the bright blue light slide up the white blade in awe. I'd seen it before but not like this. I then ran down to the basement turn the lights off and swung the blade... AHHHHHHHH it bliss. The lights were unimaginable, the sound impecible, I loved every minute of it and I couldn't wait to duel against my cousin, who now owns a Mace Windu lightsaber.

Conclusion: I hoped you liked my little story I had fun going down memory lane with you guys and gals but now its time to get down to buisness. Here is my offical rating of the Anakin Skywalker Force FX Lightsaber:

Hilt: 9.8/10 (Gold wears off)  :'(

Weight: 10/10 ;D (Perfect for twirls & spins)

Size: 10/10  ;D (really realistic)

Blade: 9/10 (Dark spot in the middle and is slightly wobbly)  :'(

Sound: 10/10  ;D (Very loud and very good quality)

Total: 9.8/10

So if you are thinking about getting a new FX lightsaber, I strongly recomend The Anakin ROTS lightsaber. You won't be disappointed.

Yikes! Dead LEDs. Did you duel with it much or did they just die on their own?
