My Gold Darth Sidious .45 Lightsaber
« on: August 12, 2006, 09:10:26 PM »
I got My Gold Darth Sidious .45 Lightsaber,I won playing Star Wars Trivia last week.(Big thanks to Amy MRCUSTOMERCARE)
I can`t seem to find too much info about the Gold Sidious .45.
But I did see 2 people on ebay selling them for close to $160.
I also read there where only 150 of these Gold Sidious produced in the world and where a bust buy exclusive.
(I`m not sure if this is true)but they said Best buy on the stand,there is no best buys on my stand.
I don't plan on opening it,but here are some great pics of the saber and box I took..

Your is a limited run of 250 of which about 5000 have produced total

I have yet to receive my gold mini or my POTC prize from before

The best buy one is more rare simply because I think only 2500 or 3000 were released.  I happened to have a gold one on ebay like 3 months back and got $100 for it.  Not only is the stand different for the best buy one (has the best buy logo on it) but it also comes in a box with a picture of a black chrome sidious saber on the front and side of the box.

I'm a big fan of Sidious and his saber, but it doesn't look that different to my standard .45 scale sidious. Is it the photo or is because there is so much gold coloured surface on the saber.

I think the difference is that this one is all gold.  I've not seen a gold Sidious in person but I think I prefer the regular one.  I like the gold ones that have some black on them to counter the gold, like Anakins - I was a little disappointed that the Obi-wan is all gold, no black at all.

The obi wan still retains a black covertech clip.  The sidious is really quite cool in person.  Its all a bright gold with silver rings around the two crystals on the hilt.  Its always hard to take photos of gold sabers because of the reflections they give off.
