View Full Version : Eeth Koth's saber blade is REALLY clear

What is the deal with that? This thing looks clearer than any other saber blade in the modern figure line. Even the super-faded RH Vader's saber blade was more opaque than this. I dunno what to make of that, is this part of the "new style" that Hasbro was talking about, or is this just another POTJ oddity?

Wasn't the "new style" lightsaber that hasbro mentioned is those beam marks at the beginning of the blade?

As far as I know, Hasbro hasn't confirmed what "the new style" of saber really means, but my guess above is that the blade shape and clarity may both in "the new style".

(Wow, I had a huge compulsion to make a Beastie Boys reference just now. :cool: )

I say the new style is only the beam marks, the color may just be a mistake. :stupid:

No, it's part of the new style. It is mentionned in the latest issue of Toyfare. It's supposed to catch the light better. I hate the blast things, but can't wait to see the new plastic.

She's right. ToyFare did indeed mention the light catching abilities of these new sabers.

I think this will be an interesting figure. Very cool methinks.

At this point and what pictures I have seen.Not to impressed. I wil get him,but will make my own lightsaber for him.I will give the new lightsaber a chance but I really don't like the shape of it.I'll see when it comes out to make my final choice on if I like it or not.Picture and the real thing are two different things. It might look better in person than on a picture.
