My Anakin ROTS FX Lightsaber Review
« on: September 11, 2006, 10:05:19 PM »
Well, I finally got the saber about 5:30pm tonight (Monday night).  I instantly took it back to my room and tore open the box and got the Lightsaber out and unwrapped it.  Now onto the review...

The Box:
Nothing much to say here, like with the Maul FX this saber was very nicely packaged and very easy to get out of the box.

The Hilt:
WOW!  Talk about beautiful!  As I said in another thread, words alone cannot describe the sheer beauty of this lightsaber hilt.  I've seen pictures of it's LE counterpart and everything is dead on once again just like the Maul FX Lightsaber.  The weight for the hilt is also awesome, very well defined and easy to twirl in one hand, unlike the Maul FX Lightsaber.  You can't see it in the picture but the one that has a close up shot of the emitter detail just above the round 'porthole' there's a tiny dent.  You really can't see it unless you hold the Lightsaber at a certain angle.

The Blade:
After putting in the three Energizer Max AA batteries that I have, I instantly fired up the lightsaber and was blown away by the brightness of the blade.  I noticed there are a few blotchy spots but nothing like what's in my Maul saber, however it's probably due to the batteries I'm using.  I did a little experiment and tested the ignition and deactivation timing with this and the Maul FX saber.  The two ignite at the same speed but I noticed during deactivation the Anakin ROTS FX saber shut down a lot quicker.  I thought that was pretty weird yet cool at the same time. 
 
The Sound:
WOW!  Much louder than the Maul's.  I love the four clash sounds that it has, definitely like in the film.  I also ment to mention this in my Maul FX review thread that I love the idle hum in the newer generation of sabers how it's a lot more consistant and doesn't break up when repeating itself like before.

The Score Rating:
I give this hilt a perfect 10 out of 10.  Despite the few blotchy spots in the blade everything else is perfect.  This is one beautiful Lightsaber and I actually love this more than the Maul FX.  I think my next saber I'm going to get will be the Mace ROTS FX.  Now onto the pictures.

nice review and pics! i agree with you this is a super nice hilt, i love it very much and it's becoming my favorite hilt fast, i like to hold the anakin so much, and i just love the width of the hilt, thinner than the esb, and cold metal construction, love it.
congrats on your new saber man, happy spinning.

Thanks guys. :)

I agree it is an awesome saber.  It's too bad that MR won't revisit the Anakin AOTC and make is smaller and as equal to the current generation sabers.
