I know they light up brightly, and make sounds, but for how long? Are tey on for a few seconds, or do they go off only when you push the button again? I hope they stay on intill you press te button again:)

are you asking about the hasbro lightsabers? if so the sabers(anakin, obi-wan, dooku) will stay on when activated: lit up and making a humming saber sound, and then when the blade is hit a sound effect of two sabers hitting is activated.

and incase you are wondering, the extended blade is 25 inches, or about 5 inches shorter than the luke and vader sabers.:)

if you are asking about the master replica sabers, i can't give you a definate answer, because i have not gotten mine yet, but i think it operates along the same line as the hasbro saber. at least it did in the video demo i saw.:)

derek - did you order Anakin or Vaders fx saber from MasterReplicas? if so could you let me know how it is when you recieve it? I want to order one of them but their website cautions that the hilt is not quite to scale because they had to enlarge it for the electronics and batteries.

If it's just a tad too big I can handle that, but if it's like Hasbro-sized huge then I don't want to waste my money. I'd love to hear a review of yours! :)

Yeh derek let us know how yours is and how long it took to get it. I want one too but i don't like how long it takes to ship but i will get it any way. Are there any places that sell them cheaper or have a better kind of shipping?

o-ka-lee-dok-a-lee!:D

when i get mine, i'll definately let you guys know. i'm thinking of getting a digital camera, so i'll possibly do a side by side comparison with hasbro's anakin saber.:)

i don't think it's gonna be as fat as hasbro's saber, they just put out the disclaimer because those die hard prop collectors complain about accuracy way more than us toy geeks ever thought of.:)

The only thing i don't like about Anakin's FX saber is that you can't remove the blade. Eventually the EL tube or whatever it is called goes out but the ones at http://www.buystarwarsstuff.com are removeable and you can buy new blades with different colors for like $79 here is the tech info you can compare the pros and cons but i think im going with this one....

I am pretty sure that those are the ones that Jeff Parks of www.parksabers.com makes, I think buyswstuff is reselling for them. I think they look awesome and if ever I have enough to get one, I already have it in mind (plus an extra green blade).

Yeah that's pretty much what I 'm thinking too. They just don't want the serious prop guys freaking out because that button is 5 millimeters in the wrong direction :D

Personally I won't be bothered if it's a little off, I just want one that looks realistic. One that you can't look at and immediately say "Oh that looks like a reproduced toy"

Another thing about Anakin's FX saber is that you can't duel with it but you can with the other ones i mentioned above...

kyo-k,

those are park sabers they are selling. jeff parks, the owner/maker of those sabers acutally bid on the rights to make the official sabers, but was outbid by master replicas. i heard he bid $2 million, while MR bid $5 million!:greedy:

also, master replicas said they probably won't make a luke ROTJ FX style saber because the neck is too small, but from what i've seen, park sabers has a variation of the luke saber that looks great. and he says his blades are strong enough to duel with.
