My sons the day after Christmas:



It was only about a day after that that my wife decided the lightsabers were going to be an 'outside' toy.

They re-set the toy aisle at my local Target and shoved SW all the way to the end of the aisle.  There are 4 pegs for basic figures (with Pregme's and Naboo soldiers), a few collector's tins, basic lightsabers, spring action lightsabers and a sprinkling of Titanium vehicles and SW Transformers.  However TRU and Wal-Mart are packed to the gills with Hoth, Endor, GB, and Naboo.

Does someone have a list of the confirmed FX sabers for 2007 (or at least so far)?  I'd really like to pick up a Luke saber sometime, if they re-do/re-release one or both of them.  Just curious.  Thanks :).

This was posted a while back, but so far the Yoda is the only one that has been 'confirmed' off the list.  Looks like there is a Luke scheduled.

Yoda FX saber coming up. Along with a "Joe Jedi" Make Ur Own FX Saber.

To your other questions, I really hope that they reduce the price accordingly for the Yoda as well.  Although I'm sure they are going to charge $120, it seems ridiculous considering it's 75% of the size of a standard FX saber...  I guess we'll find out next week for sure.  And, I don't remember hearing anything about reduced priced blasters.  However I'm with you, I can't afford the other ones and that would be a great way to get a few of them...

BTW, since the Yoda FX saber is smaller, you can try to leverage that with your wife so you can get it for your child!  I'm going to try to do that with my wife so I can get ones for my 2 boys.  Good luck!

I was at my local Target tonight and they had the Star Destroyer for $67 and Slave 1 for $35 in the clearance aisle.  Jabba's Sail Barge was still full price, but I'm sure that's the next one to go on the block.

In case you guys missed the article on the front page, Yoda Force FX is up for pre-order next week!!! ;D

I'm definitely going to have to pick these up for my kids as it's almost a foot shorter than a traditional FX lightsaber.  No MSRP listed on the page though, so I'm wondering what they will ultimately end up charging for this...

Congratulations Brian.

I ended up finding a case of these in the 'Clearance' section of Wal-Mart this afternoon, but they were still ringing up at full price.  I can only hope that they will be clearancing these out, but something tells me that they just put them in the wrong section by mistake...  Has anyone else seen these starting to go on clearance?

Roron Corobb,

Yes, the double bladed is two individual fx sabers combined in the middle.  Each FX has its own set of electronics that you can control individually.  The three reasons I ended up doing what I did above was because I didn't like the feel of the 'battle damaged' lighsaber, the double bladed is nice but ultimately too big, and I ended up finding one for only $15, so I could afford to rip it apart just for the hilt!

I hope I answered your question, but if not drop me a PM and we can discuss further.

This one is definitely on my 'Must Have' list for next year.  Fantastic!

Saw the same markdown here in Chicago tonight.  Only saw one figure though.

Sith ! Sounds awesome. Can't wait to see the results. 

I'm done!

Here's the link in case you missed it in the Customs section or in the other thread I started:

But here's me with the finished product:

Good luck on making the saber, I'd like to see some pictures when you're finished.

Here's the link to all the pictures:

But I thought I'd post this one here:

The best $45 I ever spent!

*Bump* with finished product.

Once I figured out that heating the junction of the two hilt pieces would loosen up the glue holding the two pieces together, the rest was really easy.  I just wish I would have figured that out before I scratched up the hilt trying to undo the two pieces with pliers.   Either way, I'm glad I did it and I think it still looks great.

Hope you guys like it as much as I do!

That is awesome!  Merry Christmas back at you.

I've been toying around with the idea of making a full hilt single bladed Darth Maul Force FX lightsaber for some time now.  Recently I scored one that I planned on taking apart.  So I started last night.  Here are the very early WIP pictures and a how-to in case anyone else is interested in doing the same thing.

First lower the o-ring between the two sections of the hilt:

Tap out the retention pin with a nail or screw:

Pull the retention pin out:

Heat the hilt with a blow dryer prior to unscrewing.  The threads have a glue on them that hold them in place REALLY well.  If possible, have a second person help you unscrew the two pieces:

Undo the clip holding the blade to the rest of the electronics in the hilt.  Push the blade out through the top hilt piece:

Remove the On/Off cover and unscrew the switch:

Before removing the electronics from the hilt, you will also have to unscrew the silver knob under the On/Off switch as well as the belt clip from the back of the hilt.  Push the electronics through the hilt:

Replace the silver knob and the belt clip, and screw the top piece of the hilt back into the main part of the hilt:

Replace the o-ring and put back the retaining pin:

Super glue the On/Off cover back on and then super glue the switch onto the hilt:

Lastly, put your new hilt on your 'battle damaged' FX Lightsaber, and you now have a single-bladed full hilt version:
