          Okay, one day I was strolling around at Best Buy and I saw FFX sabers for the first time. Christmas was coming up, and I really didnt think of them as anything important. Thay had a Vader on display, I went over and held it. It was much more realistic than those plastic lightsabers which I had been using, and well, they are nothing compared to the FX saber. Well, I knew it turned on, but of course as a newbie to FFX sabers, I didn't know how to turn it on. I was standing there for about a minute trying to figure it out. I didn't want to look like an idiot, so I set it back, and went to look at PS2 games. Every 3 seconds I could here it being turned on and off. I got so mad! As you know, the people at Best Buy are like the nicest people in the whole world, every time you walk in or out, they are like "HI, or Bye", and if you are having trouble looking for something, they will spend like an hour with you. Now why didnt they help me with an FFX? Oh well... after my adventure at Best Buy, I went home and did a little research, I saw all the vids and pics. They were so cool. I knew that my dad would never let me get one. But I bugged him about it. I was obsessed with getting it. I bugged him about every day.


December 25: I ran downstairs on Christmas morning. Like I thought, I didnt get it...or did I? We were cleaning up, and my dad brought in the box covered in wrapping paper. I opened it so happy. I looked inside, and all i say was my plastic lightsaber, an Anakin AOTC. I almost fainted with surprise. Then my dad brought it in. I got my 3 AA batteries and put them in. I turned it on, and my whole family was amazed. Lets go through my FFX experiences. ( I get an Anakin ROTS FX for Christmas...I get a Vader ESB FX 1 day later...My Anakin has 2 blinking LED's in it...I get a new one...My Vader ESB gets a dead LED...I get my money back...I get Luke ROTJ...this is what it is todaay if your confused. Anakin ROTS, and Luke ROTJ.)

I would man, but I really don't want to go over 2, because what are you going to do with 6 sabers in years to come? Plus I already had the experience of a Vader ESB saber. It wasn't the best, but it was pretty cool.

Ya I think my favourite is the Luke ESB. Nice story by the way haha. I like the part were you didn't wanna look like an idiot so you walked away and could hear it turned on and off. haha I did that with the Luke ROTJ when I saw it. Well I spent like a minute trying to figure it out and there was a couple right beside me with an Anakin and they were turning it on and off. I didn't want to look like an idiot so I put down the Luke ROTJ and the couple left so I picked up the Anakin which I could turn on. haha After playing with that for a while I figured out how to turn on the Luke ROTJ, and like a week later my Luke ROTJ comes in the mail. I was mad also that I ordered it and it took forever and then I find out bestbuy is now going to sell them. I thought **** haha. Ya I like the Vader ESB. I want it to be my next saber but I have no money. How about everyone here at FX give me at least a dollar. haha If 120 members do that then I get my Vader ESB. haha Ya I want my collection to be at least Luke ROTJ, Luke ESB, Vader ESB, Full Maul TPM by the end of this year.

When I got my Luke ESB I was a bit like that, I had seen so many pics but still hadn't realised you had to slide the button  :D.

I think it is the best watching people trying to figure out how to turn it on. Like at Best Buy I'll be browsing movies and I'll here some kid with their mom or dad saying "crap, how do you turn this on?" "press the..no...here.." "No that is wrong also!" hahaha Or when you show your FX's to people who have never held them before. And they press down on the buttons hahaha.

Thats what I was doing with my Luke ESB, pressing the button down, then my finger slipped down and slid the button on :D.

Nothing like holding an FX for the first time............. ;)

Haha, I was at Best Buy, and this 5 year old kid comes over with his mom, and he is like, "this must be the new plastic lightsaber everyone is talking about. I know everything about Starwars lightsabers. Hey mom, watch this", and he swings it around like a banshee, and he is like, I practice form zero. Then he drops it, and starts crying. I couldnt stop laughing!

I would get ANH but I need ESb to complete my esb collection. hahaha Very complicated you know! haha

Same thing here Ki =)

I'm currently awaiting the arrival of my new Ani ROTS, so that I will complete the 3 main colors (only Windu has a violet saber in the movies as far as I know), and I guess I'll be happy with that =) . And I always liked Ani saber a lot, as it's a great character and also the saber that Luke receives in Ep. IV!! (Well a little bit different in the movie but not much really)

Missing a blue saber was unbearable once I got green+red!

Ya Mace is the only one in the movies who has purple. It is weird because EU wise Mace had a blue saber before purple. Ki-Adi has had a green saber, then purple, and then blue. Plo Koon had a yellow saber and some jedi actually had red sabers. I don't think red was labelled sith until later because in jedi power battles adi galli or how every you spell her name has a red lightsaber. I think GL wanted the main colors to be red, green, and blue. I at least need these colors, I can do without Mace's Blue with red Filter saber haha.
