Alright, I'm trying to be creative in my displays tonight by having various Jedi face each other in battle. And I must say this new flashy effect at the base of the new lightsaber blades is not working for me. POTJ Old Ben is going up against AOTC Nikto, and while Ben has a nice, clean blade Nikto has this fuzzyness at the bottom of his lightsaber.
What gives? Why did they do this? If the answer is that they were trying to capture the look of an igniting lightsaber, I'll say "nice try but I don't want to pose my figures with 'igniting' lightsabers . . . what's wrong with an ignited lightsaber?"
*sigh* What say you all? Does this irritate you or is it negligible? Or do you actually like it?
I was skeptical from the online pics, and now that I have a few Jedi figures I just don't like it.
