I am Marco, an avid SW fan from England. I had my eye on an FX Saber for a while, but i finally obtained the money to by one. I went for the Anakin RoTS model.Ordering the Saber:
The 2nd most exciting part. I ordered my saber from www.play.com
, I must say, it was an excellent service. I ordered at 16:20 the Monday just gone, and my saber arrived at around 9:47. It was packed in a carboard box reading 'Master Replicas'Getting the saber:
I was sat eating my cornflakes when the doorbell rang. I went and answered, and it was the Postman. I signed for the delivery and ran into my living room to start my 'journey.'
I carefully opened the cardboard box, and even more carefully, I pulled out the box containing the Saber. Great! I thought. I timidly opened the black box, and inside was a beautiful looking replica of Anakin's saber.Getting the saber ready:
The Battery pack was easy to find, and also easy to get in to. No tools required! Luckily i had bought a pack of Duracell AA batteries a day in advance so i was ready. I closed the curtains and turned out the lights. I held the saber in my hand...Using the Saber:
It took me a few seconds to find the On/Off switch, but when i did i slid it into the 'On' position. To my delight, i heard the 'power-up' sound, and saw the Bright Blue Blade 'rising' from the hilt. The humming sound was music to my ears. I moved the saber around, slowly, and heard the motion noises. No rattling inside the hilt. After tapping the arm of my sofa (It's wooden) and not hearing any noise, i was a bit disappointed. I hit it a bit harder. Sure enough, there was a 'Clash' Sound. The only downside is the force required to get that sound. I really don't want that saber to break.Aesthetics:
This saber looks beautiful, from the pommel to the tip of the blade, it really is nice to look at. It also appears to be ALL metal.Quality:Sounds - 8 - 9/10
Looks - 9/10
Feel - 10/10
Value for money - 8/10
Overall (Not an average) 9/10Conclusion:
In my eyes, the Anakin FFX saber was a good one to start off with, i got it Brand New for £50 ($87) with Postage and Pakaging cost's included. I am a very happy person today.
