The Windu blade does have some blotchiness in bright light and on close inspection but it's not really noticeable in the dark. In daylight it looks a bit pinkish with purple areas but once the lights go off it looks a lot better and a more uniform purple. The hilt on the Windu makes up for any of it's other downfalls IMHO. The feel and look of the hilt is awesome. The gold accents and areas of rubber grip are unique. I think the only hilt I can say is more unique is the Sidious and that looks very organic and definitely evil. Could the Windu blade be better? I would say yes. Is the blade a reason not to buy the Windu saber? I would definitively say no.

just the fact that it is the ONLY purple lightsaber is enough to get one.   I will add one to the collection soon.

May The Force FX Be With You!

I use Duracell ultra batteries and I can safely say that there is zero blotchiness on my Mace Windu blade.  ;D

This one is a replacement one for one which was blotchy and had a few broken led contacts which made them flicker a little. This blade is now perfect and is far probably even brighter with smooter colour than the vader ESB (my favourite)

Having seen a few pictures and heard about various different peoples experiences, coupled with my first mace saber, it appears there is a mixed quality of these blades going around.  ???

Ok, tonight's the night. I'm going to buy an FX lightsaber. The only problem is that thanks to this thread I'm torn between two sabers. Grrr  >:(

Only joking ;)  but it is a hard choice as I'm torn between Vader's ESB and Anakin's ROTS. I'm going to buy from http://www.play.com/ as suggested by fellow UK posters.

I just wanted to say thank you! I've spent the week with you guys, reading your reviews (which are very helpfull, btw) and sharing your stories and now I think you've converted me to the FX side  ;D

If only I can decide which saber I want...  ;)

My advice go with the Anakin ROTS to start with, its just a great saber. I think it depends on what you prefer the OT or the PT, if you where a big Vader fan as a kid that changes everything. Sorry i think this is pretty useless to you i went one way then done a 180. Go with darthirishmans idea flip a coin.

If you ordered from Play.com and you live in the mainland UK, you should have it within 48 hours. If I'm being honest i think the coin did you a favor, although you will want the Vader after a few days with the Anakin, trust me i know  ;D.

Scottish Jedi is right, dark fox, as soon as you get the Anakin you'll love it, but you'll want a Vader too.  Then a new Luke ROTJ.  Then a Mace to complete the colour-set.  Then an old Anakin or Luke to see what the EL blades were like.  Then the Luke ESB to see if the blade really is the brightest.  Then the Vader ANH.  Then the other old EL blade saber to complete the set.

Then the Darth Maul, because that will be out by then.   :D

Oh please no! Not another addiction, Adrena1in, I don't think my wallet could handle it† †:'(

Lol - I expect you're right though as I'm already thinking about making some space on a wall for the full set†  :D
