the maul is so awesome.
i had a go of course with the maul and it is a joy to duel with, i found it great fun spinning it and blocking his upper shots, then swiping from below with the second blade. then i let my borther use the maul while i had the luke ROTJ. he was very difficult to get at indeed. however he was no match for 2 jedi, once my brother in law joined in, we had him in serious trouble.
with new batteries in and in the total darkness the saber just looks so sick its amazing. my brother who used to like my luke ROTJ FX best, decided that the maul is fara and away the best and i agree.
my anakin ROTS and the luke ROTJ also both looked amazing clashing with the dual blades of the maul.
i cant wait for the next time they come around.
it is with out question the best FX to date.
