Yeah I agree.  The Qui-Gon FX would be a definite favorite among many on this site I know that much.  I hope in 07' the Obi-Wan TPM and Qui-Gon FX's are made.  Haha wouldn't that be a great pair?

no what im sayin is maul would have escaped in ep1 and then a final duel would take place in ep 2. just to keep both the characters around a little longer.

Ya, but then what would have happened in ROTS with no Dooku?

Its amazing but when I found the Luke ROTJ 2005 had the same sounds but at different pitches than the Anakin ROTS I wasn't to depressed about it I figured since its a re-release it would have the same characteristics it did before but with a green LED blade, I guess I am more bothered about the Maul since its the latest and greatest of the Fx-sabers, true somethings did change about the saber, hilt accuracy, overall size and the battery size, more of Reddish color (although I think the Vader is RED, not a RED-ORANGE that some think), another SITH saber.  So what I am getting at is MR did well in hyping the saber and marketing, I was one of those that salavated about the pics at TOYFAIR and I quickly grabbed the phone, called Borders, hey man reserve me two of those bad boys, oh yeah.  But now that someone has mentioned the Vader and Maul sound the same, I feel that my train has derailed, my heart has sank, ETC, so I am left with the feeling that the Obi Wan might be my next saber instead of the Darth Vaul, sorry Darth Maul.  I know that members in here will tell me to shut up!!!!!     LOL

Technically, the Anakin ROTS is copying the Luke. I found my ROTJ saber MATCHES the movie dead on, and Ani ROTS came out later. Besides, all saber sound generally the same. To create a new saber sound, they just mess with pitches. Hence why all but hero sabers get the SAME sound. Besides, Vader's sounds dark and evil, good choice for a sith saber. Don't knock a good product because of an actual good idea. Frankly, MR didn't have to do this because it has smaller marketing ploy than a Dooku because Maul was TPM, 2 movies ago. Dooku was in the final two. There sabers sounded generic, therefore by making it a Vader sound it sounds like the evil it is.

 ::) Luke's is close......Just not the same power-up and power-down sounds. (Accoustically, the Jedi sabers sound like a sword being sheathed and unsheathed, the Sith sabers sound like the strike of a match and Luke's from ROTJ has a metal punching through metal sound)

Also, when you pay the money for these products, you should be getting what you pay for. MR stately guarantees that the sounds are from the movie. (The box says movie and not movies......maybe it should be the other way around)

Doesn't anyone care that the blade is better? I mean everyone is talking about the sounds and nothing else, it's getting pretty annoying, no offense.

Most fans enjoy the sounds of the lightsaber. Afterall, it would seem that this is the concencus here.

I'm trying to look at it like the glass is half full.  Granted, there is no reason for them to use Vadersfx,  they might as well have recorded sounds of the Millenium Falcon taking off and used those.  But everything else about the saber is great.  Optimism.  The sounds can be changed, but it will cost money to get the parts from another FX.  That's the only downside I can think of.


 :D
