    Me and my best friend decided to buy these, i really don't remember why i had the idea, but we had the money, and it was a cool idea. anyways, we've both seen all the star wars movies, but, really, we weren't big fans. actually, the closest thing we have to star wars in our everyday lives would be the Jedi Guy, who dresses up like Quigon Jin and rides around on his bike downtown every summer. point is, not star wars fans.
    so, we bought them, the Luke model, and the Darth vader,[Star Wars Darth Vader Force FX Red Lightsaber] and had the best midnight sword fight ever. we were thinking of returning them too, untill we pulled them out and tried them. there freakin' amazing, for any kid or adult! I mean, these things have got two 17 year olds fighting with toy light sabers at dusk everyday.
    they seem to be fairly durable. they have some scratches from being hit together, sometimes a little harder than what was intended, but they haven't broken thus far. and the scratches are only noticeable at a really close range when there on.
    Final verdict, everyone should get these. not a must for any star wars fan, but anyone who likes a good sword fight and making a robot voice and pretending they have a long lost son named luke.

    Ok, bought this toy for my hubby for Christmas, sort of as a joke gift. Let's just say, it turned out to be more than just a joke. It's so fun to play with, it makes all the noises from the movie and it turns on and off like it's a real light saber. Cool. Very cool.

    Obviously you're not going to be able to buy an actual lightsaber anytime soon, so mimicry is the next best thing; this is where this item succeeds. Compared to any other lightsaber replica on the market, this one is the king. It isn't perfect, but it's no cheap Chinese knockoff. Everything from the actual hilt to the sturdy blade is the nicest quality you're going to find. The thing I have the biggest issue with is the sound effects and motion sensor. Obviously Master Replicas couldn't use top-of-the-line gyroscopics and sound systems in this thing, otherwise the price would be many times what it is, so for the price, it is not bad. In fact, the sound is really, really loud. So loud that I actually put a foam disc in between the speaker and cap to muffle it a bit, which works great and tones it down to a volume that is more house-friendly. If you're at a party, the regular volume is perfect. The motion effects are a bit laggy, and sometimes non-existent. It seems that it really only effectively works when you swing it a certain direction; that is the case with mine, anyhow.

    The light is nice and bright; These do look better in online videos than they do in person, but again, for the price, this is as good as it's gonna get. I give it a 5/5 since it is top notch in it's market and is both suitable for display as well as light dueling, should you choose to do so. Get one before they are even harder to find, this price is better than what you'll find on Ebay, used!! :)

    Here's your proof of buy right here. I and my kids own many a light saber including the very cool Clone Wars Ultimate Light Saber Kit. But after buying this... I can never go back. This is it; I'm ruined on this baby. I picked it up at a convention for a reasonable price and plan to buy at least one more the next time I am there. Let me tell you a little bit about this "collectable" "toy".

    Hilt - Well this isn't your $6, $20 or even $30 light saber. This is an all metal, high quality rubber and authentic details hilt. There is something extremely satisfying about grabbing it and feeling that weight and collectable quality that makes it feel not like a toy. It's as close to the movie version as you can get and it is not fat clunky plastic.

    Blade - Oh, the blade... filled with sequentially lit, high intensity LED lights; it is a glorious sight to behold. Flick on the saber and the blade lights from hilt to top as if extending from the hilt, not all at once like a flashlight like a toy version - same with turning it off. And you know how the toys really only look good in a dark room? Not so here. Even in a well lit room these shine up to a beautiful intensity. That's the difference in the light not being just in the handle but actually all throughout the blade.

    Sounds - The sound effects are just awesome. I have seen folks who think they are a bit loud but to me the louder the better. And they are LOUD. Turn it on - Vrooom! Turn it off - Sqreeeech! Not only are there great on and off sounds but whacking your buddy will yield several different clashing and screeching sounds.

    What can I say? Amazing. I've always loved this design ever since I saw it on the big screen back in 1977 when Obi-Wan handed Luke his father's lightsaber. I wanted one. It's been 30+ years now, but I finally have it!!! It was worth the wait...every year of it. Fun, cool looking, durable. If you can find one, get it. Master Replicas lost their license to produce Star Wars products, so you may have to do a little detective work, but it's worth it. Should look cool as a prop in one of mine and my buddies' short films...
