Second, I need to thank Douglas Equils and the other reviewers for their reviews. I found them very helpful.
I just got my saber and I am very happy with it. I thought about getting one of the replicas, but I finally decided that I wanted one that I could build the way I wanted and not just a replica of one in the movies. If I wanted a more exact replica I would have gotten one of the other ones.
I live on the east coast and my saber took 4 days to get it from California. It was shipped the same day I ordered it. Outstanding service. On receipt I found that the saber was well packaged and protected. All parts were wrapped in plastic and encased in styrofoam. There were no damaged parts.
The overall length of the saber is about 39 inches long and the blade is about 26 inches long. As noted in other reviews the blade is about 6 inches shorter than the other MR Force FX sabers.
The saber is built around an aluminum core. The core contains the electronics and blade in a permanent assembly. The base end of the tube is threaded for the end cap. The front end has a lip which stops the forward movement of the emitter cap. This is the end to which the blade is attached. The hilt pieces are plastic and the emitter and base caps are machined aluminum. These pieces slide over the aluminum core. The plastic is of thick high quality plastic, however there are some mold lines. If you are into do it yourself it might be possible to duplicate them in metal. The silvered plastic pieces look like brushed gray satin aluminum and match the gray anodized aluminum emitter perfectly. Except for the round emitter and the end caps do not expect shinny metal.
At first I found that the plastic sleeves did creak. However, if you put a little 3 in 1 oil on the threads of the aluminum core you can snug the base cap down quite nicely and the creaking stops. In addition the oil will prevent stripping the threads and reduce the possibility of cross threading the end caps. But don't put on too much oil. One drop will do. If there is creaking or looseness you can use one or two rubber 1-1/2 X 1-3/8 X 1/16 O-rings which you can find at any hardware store. These will tighten the hilt nicely and they also look good.
The lighting system as other reviews note is different from the other Force FX sabers. The blade is lit from the base. It is not bad, but not as bright as the others. On the other hand you can select the blade color--red,green or blue. I guess this is the trade off. If money were no object it would have been nice to have three removable blades with the standard Force FX lighting system. As it is it is bright enough for me and I like the ability to change colors.
So should you get this? Well that's up to you. If you want a saber that you can customize it's great. If you want something that's closer to a movie replica then get one of the others. If I could only have one saber, this is the one I would get. With its limitations I have at least three different sabers and I like that.
Addendum: It is now December 2014. I still like my lightsaber. I kept it in the original box and is in near new condition. I woudn't trade it for the world, so don't ask. I must say that I am stunned how the price has increased. With shipping I paid $96.94. I do hope that Hasbro reissues this because I think others would enjoy it. If you have one consider yourself lucky.
