Cool a Luke ESB.  The website looks like it's ANH.  Even better.  Were there others in the store Ben.  The site only shows 3.

Thanks again Ben for the awesome find.  I picked up my Luke ANH today.  I just made it.  All three RS were out I got the last one.  Fortunately my wife had the good sense to call this morning and have them hold one for me.  The lady said theseare the last ones as they have no more coming, EVER!

I am saving this for my son's christmas ornament the year he watches Star Wars. 

If you guys can get your hands on one they are pretty sweet.  Mostly metal hilt with some of the smaller parts being rubber.  The blade is removable if you want to wear it. lol  :D :D :D

Even the switch is placed so not to be seen.  They   did a great job for a $10 pocket flashlight.

I piked up the Luke ANH flashlight and the Vader laser pointer. I like the laser pointer better. The Luke is metal but it's painted silver. The Vader has a proper chrome body.

 
Sweet! Think you can convert it to Lux?

Not a Luxeon, but a Rebel would fit nicely!

Hi Everyone!!
    Well the other day much to my surprise I saw one of those mini  masterreplicas lightsabers at radio shack and wow they are cool!!I bought a vader lightsaber and it has two modes for light up.
1-Flashing mode
2-solid mode
     It is a cool saber for the price and at 10.00 not bad at all.Here are a couple of pics of my latest small toy lol :D :D




Of course put a flashing mode in this and not the big one :D

Yeah the flashing mode is way too slow but still cool nonetheless.  It will look cool on the tree flashing.

Hey, I went on their web site and they only showed the Vader and Maul.  Are the other ones in store only or are they listed in a different place on their site?

I picked up the Yoda and Luke this morning at my local Radio Shack. The Vader was out. The manager said he was selling these things like hot cakes. He had 50 over the last 2 weeks and is down to a few left. I saw a couple more Yoda and Lukes. Plenty of Maul laser pointers.

Construction is plastic over metal. ( 3 ) AG-5 batteries and plenty of room for a larger LED (i.e. Rebel).

There not as bright as they should be but there is plenty of room for improvement. The hilt is not big enough for AG13 batteries so getting power to a Rebel LED could be a challenge.

I have comparison pictures between these and the MR scaled versions of the Luke and Yoda. The Yoda appears to be close to .45 scale just like the MR version...






P.S. I just realized that these are made by Master Replicas!

Don't mix up the laser pointer with the flashlights.  The only problem with going on line is you can't order a specific one you get them at random.

The little blade really lights up under a 1W Lux LED.

Wonder if I can stuff one in there somehow?
