It looks pretty close to the studio replica. Most of it is metal, some black rubber, and textured black plastic. The top of the hilt has that textured plastic (see picture), and I have to say, it makes it look cheap. That piece does not match the nice, smooth gloss finish of the one on the packaging (the one pictured on the box is not the same exact item that was packaged). I felt disappointed, but then accepted that I did buy an expensive kid's toy (although the instructions list it as "adult collectable"). They also put four stickers on the metal parts of the hilt, two safety advisors and two instructional (yes, there is a sticker that reads "on/off"). Removing those left adhesive residue on the metal finish. I used some Goo Gone to get it off (took about 5 minutes). So, the cheap textured plastic part on the hilt, plus the process of removing annoying stickers, had me thinking this was worth more like $50-75.
The hilt had weight to it. Which gave me a feeling like I was not holding a toy. The blade is not removable. I knew this before purchasing. I think you can get it out if you meddle with it. But, I don't want to break it. After you get the batteries in there and fire it up, it's pretty cool! There is a lack of consistent hum, compared to what we hear on the screen. I made the excuse that Vader's saber sounds different than most the Jedi I've heard. I feel the blade is delicate. I would not advise hitting it into anything hard, or with major force. I whacked it into a pillow a few times to test the sounds. One out of five whacks got me the lightsaber clash sound. It does look really cool when you turn it on and power it down in a dark room.
The stand it comes with was a let down for me. One part of the clear plastic has a thick scratch and there is a black metal flake stuck in the mold. You have two options of function for. One is to balance the hilt on it. Depends on where you display it. I can see my wife easily knocking it off while vacuuming, or my dog's tail hitting it off. The other option is to stick the blade through an opening in the base. I could not get the blade in the hole at first. I almost gave up. When I did get it in, it was tight. So the jagged opening of the base was rubbing on the blade as I tried to work it down. Fearing scratching the finish on the blade, I reversed and deemed the stand worthless.
If I can remove the blade and replace that textured plastic part of the hilt with the glossy smooth piece it was supposed to have, I could then buy a display case of some sort, and have a pretty cool collectible that I can nod at from time to time.
I do think it was overpriced for what I got. I've felt this way with another "black series" item I bought. These items are not the highest quality. A lot of imperfections on the molds. I mean, if you have the money to burn (like I did, at the time), you won't feel as bad. The alternative was those handmade replicas on etsy or eBay that had a lot of poor reviews.
Final verdict: Cool expensive toy that should be sold at half the price. For those with skills, a few modifications would make a better replica to display.
I'm giving it 3 stars because of that textured plastic piece on the hilt, and that the hilt pictured on the box, did not match the contents.
Am I satisfied? Yea, I guess.
Would I buy another one? No.
