Ok I just got my Vader ESB..I'm loving it.
Now I have used all the force fx except the anakin aotc(it would be last anyways)
I have to say they the Anakin ROTS is the BEST fx saber..
It is the brightest, (a little more then Luke ESB) the LOUDEST,this saber screams compaired to all the other ones even the Vader ESB.
The motion detection for the clash sounds seem to be the most sensitive of all the 2nd and 3rd gen fx.
The blade also seems fatter then the other fx sabers when lit,due to how bright it is.
2nd best saber would have to be the Vader ESB,it has its own sound and its nice,but next to a Anakin ROTS it gets out shined in brightness....But it feels,sounds,and looks great!!
Another great feature is the power on and off switch,it never gets accidentally turned off mid twirl like with my other fx.
Its no doubt my 2nd fav force fx...
3rd Would have to be the Luke ESB its just as bright as the Anakin ROTS just a little different..but in comparisen to the Anakins sounds it can`t compair,landing it in the #3 spot,beating the Windu by a hair..
Forth place would have to be the Windu AOTC,just for its hilt alone it could have easily tagged 3rd..but the blade could be more purple.It has a nice sound to it,its just not loud enough for me..and its heavy as xxx.You get the Windu more to admire its beauty hung on your wall,then to duel with.
Though I said the blade is not as purple as I had hoped(its almost silvery purple),it is still a VERY beautiful color...I REALLY like that saber,but not as much as 1-3
All 4 models mentioned are quality lightsabers and I recommend getting um all regardless of witch is best,they are ALL worth having.
They are have different personality's or lightsaberality's if you will, and they are are great!
I can`t wait for Luke Rots and Obi.
*note* This is not a review it is a opinion I have formed after trying all the fx models.
