I would like one as well. I contacted MR at the end of Dec and my reply said after the 2005 Membership changed to 2006 he didn't have any info about the future of this peice. I saw that they had a 2005 Darth Maul membership kit at the toy show though on rebelscum.com in the scaled lightsabers section, so maybe there are some left they will eventually sell?????

I just got into this line finally today, and this is a piece I too would like to have. There aren't many on ebay, and the ones that are there are pretty expensive. I hope they re-release it in some fasion soon.

I bit the bullet and got one off e-bay BIN - 108.00. I hate the bidding game. It always goes up and up. It's worth every penny. Man it is nice.

Yikes they're getting that expensive? My wife got me the collectors kit last year, and I am glad to have it on my desk now..

My only complaint about that saber is that the full version is pretty light compared to the rest of my sabers. It seems kind of hollow. I don't know what the BD version feels like,, I don't have one of those yet.

Isn't it lighter becasue it's made of aluminum and not chrome like most of the others?

I don't know why it's lighter.. but things arent normally MADE of chrome,,

technically, they're mostly just chrome plated. It depends on what the base metal is,,

it could be brass, steel, etc. They generally don't chrome plate Aluminum, that gets anodized...

and if it's hollow or solid plays a big difference as well

They're probably both aluminum mostly, but they weight these intentionally for sure. I have the bd mini and it feels as heavy as the full mini - so the bd must be weighted or more solid.

If it's made like the battle damaged one, it's machined aluminum which is awesome, it means it was really spun on a lathe.

You're absolutely right about that.

That why I like my Luke ROTJ like the DMauls, (although I know your not crazy about that one) you can tell it's been spun because it has those micro lines that you can hear with a fingernail - it's "heavy" too which leads me to think it's weighted.

My guess is that the Luke one started as a solid chunk of aluminum and was machined into shape while the Maul one was started as a pipe because of the semi-hollow nature of the BD version, maybe with an end-cap added for the emitter. That's pure guessery though.

Pretty good guessery, I'm thinking.
