Anakin AOTC review with video
« on: November 24, 2009, 08:14:03 PM »
For this being the first lightsaber that MR put out, I think it is absolutley excellent.  Lets start with the hilt.  In my opinion one of the most detailed ones there are.  It also looks so much like Vader's.  The hilt is just uber detailed with the little green and red LED's on the hilt.  I give the hilt a perfect 10/10.  On to the setup.  OOO boy.  To get to the battery pack is just a huge hassle.  Unscrewing the Phillips Head in the power section is actually A LOT harder than it sounds.  I swing this one around quite a bit and to me it just feels like it wants to fall apart with the slightest touch.  1/10.  The sound is not good.  The speaker which is not unscrewable is covered by steel mesh.  VERY quite.  3/10.  The blade uses the EL technology which is not bright at all.  5/10.  Overall it's pretty good.  There are a few problems but it really looks good on your shelf.  OVERALL: 9/10

FYI: the video link is for the 2005 Anakin ROTS, not the 2003 Anakin AOTC.
Pics are always nice too. ;)

I recommend putting pics of everything you've mentioned in your review. Helps those who've never owned or seen the saber get a better feel of what you're talking about.

Oh, and in all of LDM's or Jango's multitudes of videos...I've never seen more than their hands. ;)
(maybe the occasional forearm... :D)

Otherwise, nice review.

I fixed the link.  This may sound stupid however.  I took pictures of my own however I wasn't sure how to upload them as I have not done that before.  If you could please help with that I would be glad to post those pics.  ;)

Okay, the obligatory post:



Now, I upload pictures to Photobucket before posting them here.  It's an online image host site, and very useful.  Send them from a cell phone camera, or upload them with a USB cable.

I believe there's a tutorial link in the tutorial section. ;)

I have this lightsaber myself, but the bubble strip that you turn so that you can access the battery pack is missing. Does anyone know where I can find one, or has one for sale I would appreciate it.
