Okay, I got to go outside with it at around 9:30. It looks sweet at night!! It's also nice to be able to twirl it without worrying about hitting a celing or wall. After I was done with it, I realized that the hilt was all grimy. My hands were sweating while I was using it (i didn't know at the time), and now it's dirty. Should I use some windex on a paper towel to get the grime off?

That's what I use. I'm pretty anal about the grimyness of my hilts and seeing as how the Anakin is mostly chrome, I find myself constantly getting out the windex and a soft cloth. Haven't had any problems with that method of cleaning it so I'd say you're safe.

Thats quick service. I ordered mine on a Thursday night and recieved it on Monday. I will order the ESB Vader from them soon, too. I'm still wondering if they will stock the Luke ROTJ or is that an exclusive to another store?

You should think about purchasing a pair of gloves.  They leave your saber clean as new.  You'll probably end up bringing out your saber more often because you don't have to worry about the long cleaning process.  Grease and finger prints are a killer to get off.

I've had my Anakin ROTS for about 3 weeks now and to be honest I've only ever touched it with my bare hands once, which was when I first took it out of the box the day I received it.  After taking the time to clean it that night I figured it's gonna be a hassle doing this process everytime, so I went out and purchased some thin cotton gloves.  In my opinion, don't get these because the heat from your hands transfer through the cotton and onto the hilt leaving it it quite wet.  But hey, no grease or finger prints :).  I recently bought some soft leather gloves and these are great.  They're a bit thicker than the cotton gloves though so I can't really feel the lightsaber in my hand.  But on the bright side, it leaves my lightsaber sparkling clean.

Just thought I'd mention this because it really does reduce the hassle of having to clean the hilt all the time.

Good on you! I have actually considered gloves... now that it's getting closer to the cooler months I shouldn't have a problem finding some nice leather gloves. They will be especially handy for Halloween. I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who is so anal about fingerprints. I took my Anakin to work to show it to everybody one day... man you should have seen it after everyone had handled it.  I almost got sick right there. Anyway, thanks for the recommendation.

It gets worst, I forbid any of my family from touching it unless they wear gloves.  I also had a few mates over and showed them my saber.  When they saw me put gloves on I think they were afraid to ask if they could hold it.  They watched me show it off and I didn't even offer them a go!  I felt so bad afterwards.. :(
