Anyone know of any online retailers selling the Rubies lightsabers? I've found a place or two, but they've only got the Episode 1 'sabers (and they're usually sold out of Kenobi).

i just found some in the costume section of my local wal-mart the other day. they had anakin, mace, and dooku's sabers. i'll look around the net and try and see where i found the sites w/them for sale.
found a place they are $10.99 a piece

No offense, but Rubies makes cheap pieces of crap. I'd rather spend my money on a pile of dirt. Go for the Hasbro lightsabers!

Thanks for the help, Bobajames! I too had been counting on my Wal-Mart getting them in, but I don't know if their over-stocking of Episode 2 toys scared them or what, but they've yet to stock the sabers with the rest of the Halloween junk. But I'd been looking at every Halloween shop I know of online and come up empty-handed (not thinking to check out toy shops), so thanks again for pointing this place out.

I guess the quality is a little iffy, but they're cheap enough that I don't mind. Factor in Hasbro's ugly bit of plastic that fails to telescope into the hilt and lack of a Windu 'saber , and I think Rubies sabers are okay. All I'm really interested in are the hilts, anyway.

You're welcome :)
if you do a search i'm pretty sure there are quite a few other places with them. Brians Toys (one of my favorite online stores despite high new fig. prices) may have them, but i can't check the site right now because it is down. oh well.

I've seen them at just about every Target I've been to. Pretty nice, if you ask me. I spent less for an Anakin and a Dooku than I did on one Hasbro Anakin saber, and I like them both a lot more. The fully retractable blade was a MAJOR selling point with me.
