Obi-Wan's, definitely. Rubies did a really good version of it for the foreign market (the US version was totally different) and I even tried to make a metal version of it for myself, but it never came to pass.

Obi-Wan's is my favorite TPM lightsaber.

Obi-Wan's lightsaber in TPM is similar in design to Qui-Gon's as padawans traditionally build their lightsaber to resemble their master's weapons.

They're similar in color, shapes and design. They're built diffrently but carry the Master/Padawan look.

All lightsabers are fairly similar in color: silver, black. How are the 2 sabers similar in shape though? I'm not seeing it at all. They have vastly different pommels, Obi-Wan's has that column near the top of black rings held back by posts where there are no posts on Qui-Gon's, Qui-Gon's has the middle the thick angled coins thing surrounded by the smallish barrel cover while Obi-Wan's has the mostly-metal barrel with the smaller cutaway revealing the vent-like shapes, it's totally different. And in designs, the only similarities I can think of are the kovertec belt disc and the red activation button, both of which nearly every Ep 1 saber shared.

It's hard for me to say which one is my favorite, but if I really had to choose then I'd go with Battle Damaged Maul. Although I don't actually own it yet, I just love the scarring on it and the red crystal.

Obi-Wan's TPM saber rocked! With the pummel on the end - it's Hammer Time!

The battle damaged maul is an awesome piece, the battle damage is indeed pretty cool. But it is also pretty subtle. Looks as if it was dropped and dragged a few times, but nothing to drastic.

Do you have it already? Or are you talking from the pics you've seen? Or are you talking about the Prop Replicas or scaled versions, not the FX that just went on sale today for the general public?

That's cool, Nash. There's a lot of things like that which I'd collect if I felt I had the deep pockets or didn't have split priorities like ArtAsylum Star Trek on top of my (typically Hasbro) Star Wars interests. The full sized prop replica sabers are NICE!!!
