I just received my Obi ROTS.
The Hilt, (Fully metal) is very heavy, and I like that. (I thought my Ani was a heavy one, I have the latest version)
The hole saber is very strong and creacking free.
The blade is a killer, blotchness free and very bright, the best MR have ever made, and a bit stronger than my Ani ROTS.
The Obi sound is a bit louder than the new Luke ANH, but half as loud than my Anakin ROTS.
The sound of the Ani is almost twice as loud as all the other sabers.
Maybe it's mine, but the HUMMING sound of my Ani is like a lion in my room.
But the Obi-hilt is VERY BULKY and nobody wrote about that.
This was the reason I sold my Mace windu again, and because of the sound which was worse.
The bottom end-cap is SOOOO big, it's almost a giant granate..
Compared with this, the Ani is SO VERY small, and I think it's the best MR has ever made.
The hole saber is on scale, (except for the fat neck) The black part between the controlbox and the gold part is the base I think, which could not be made smaller, and from that part, all the other parts are on scale, so the bigger parts, like the upper mirrored part(emitter I think) and the end-cap, have to be very big, and that makes the hole saber a bit bulky.
But It's exceptable.
Whenyou give this saber to someone that sees a lightsaber for the first time, than that person feels and sees a serious real looking saber.
So for that it's a winner.
There are people who like to convert their sabers.
With this one I would say, for the blade I see no need for that, but when it's possible to increase the loudness, than I probable would do it too.
The blade is the best MR made, ever.
Even better than my Luke ANH.
The hilt is fully metal, but BULKY.
The sounds are to dim for me to like it, but I will survive.
I'm not selling this one, as the Luke ANH which is in the box again for selling.
Except,... when MR makes the Obi AOTC, than this one goes for sell too.
I was waiting for that one, but it seems MR don't come out with another saber again.
And everywhere the Obi ROTS was sold out, so I took my last chance at a shop here in Holland, for €109,-- instead of the €139,-- which it's normally costs here.
I really liked the Obi Wan ROTS 0,45 scaled mini lightsaber so much.
It is very shinny and detailed. I was hoping I would like the FX version as much as the Mini but nehhh, no chance. I think the LE had to be very beautyfull.
Too bad I don't have the Obi AOTC mini, but I'll live. (NOT)
(Ohhh well, after a few hours, looking and holding this saber, it starts to grow on me, and I like it more and more. You should see my first review of the Anakin ROTS, two years ago, compared to what I think of it now, ha ha ha).
