Hi fokes, dono if any of you remember me, but well i've been away thats why I havent been posting hear but anyway.


I was looking at the pictures on rebelscum, and i've been looking around and I havent seen anyone talking about the new ( fake if so ) lightsabers found at wall mart. But after looking at the pictures I say its BS why ?.

First off there was never a orange blade in the moive, why would hasbro put that in there?? plus the mace saber isnt the one he used in episode II, PLUS why is it we only see the box pictures why didnt we see the toy it self.


And another thing why didnt hasbro say anything about the lightsabers.

I know everyone knows about this why ? becuase everytime i do post something everyone knows so anyway your Opnions ?

PS wear is the Great Jar Jar ? i know he can clear this up :D

that is mace's episode 1 saber. hasbro made this saber almost 2 years ago, with a device that allowed the blade to change colors, but never released it. they should of released it as a generic jedi saber and made a new episode 2 mace hilt.:)

for the same reason they make batman and superman figures in desert camoflague and ice skating outfits.:) they are cheap and re-use stuff because they know kids won't notice or care.

here is the orange saber, just a repainted qui-gon hilt:

I for one like them.Its better than seeing the standard red and blue(sometimes green).A nice change from the break of things,maybe a sign that E.U. is working into mainstream:D :D :evil: :evil: :evil:

I like them, although my budget will not allow me to buy all of them. I'm still confused about the Mace one. Is that the one they are saying will be released later? I hope not. I love Mace's gold-plated saber handle. But this? It is nothing special.

I'll get Yoda's saber for sure, most likely if funds allow it. I just wish they could use a pic of Kit Fisto and his mighty grin on the box. I'd buy that saber just for the pic! :D

I still need Luke's 97 saber, and Anakin's and Dooku's. I got Obi-Wan's saber back in 2000 when it was out for TPM, so I passed on the identical AOTC one. I got the figures first, and the other stuff comes next.
I want the orange one, it's cool. Even though they have Plo Koon and Coleman Trebor holding orange sabers when they have blue and green (yeah yeah yeah, in TPM Plo had yellowish but that's bull now). Mace's, I like, I might wait until they make the AOTC handle version (if they do). The green one is retarded, I got the Qui-Gon saber at TRU for three bucks or something (but the bulb burned out and I can't find a new one, maybe it's not so retarded after all). Oh well.

I have an extra Mint in Mint box Anakin lightsaber (AOTC and electronic) for trade or sell if you want one. I can also ship a loose electronic saber wihtout the box. If you (or if anyone else is interested) email me at untyl@aol.com I also have an extra kenobi AOTC lightsaber.

By the way, I plan on buying all four when they do come out. I am really excited about the electronic yoda lightsaber. The mace one should also be pretty awesome.

LATE,

TheDarthVader, thanks for the offer but I'll probably end up getting one in the stores - they're over-abundant. Thanks though!

Well if they are releaseing them I will buy them i can tell you that for sure they are cool looking plus i need a green blade. I only need the top part of anakins saber from the hilt up the top of the blade just that part.

Bah, I can't believe they're re-releasing that QGJ saber hilt, much less with a green blade on one of 'em. The button on that thing is SO easy to accidentally trigger when you don't want it to, and unreasonably bulky IMO. The new paint jobs look ok though.

I'm bummed the color-changing element of Mace's saber isn't seeing production, the design there looked so much cooler than these standard plastic blades.

Actually theres quite a difference, they added stuff to the sculpt, even between the orange and green sabers they're the same mold but with different tooling, and the green saber has some retooling to it to make it look less like Qui's saber. Pretty nifty...

unless you can show me the difference i have to disagree. these are exactly like qui-gon's saber, just with different paint jobs. i'm looking at qui-gon's saber compaired to the two new hilts, and can see no differences, other than the paint jobs.
