Well this afternoon I had a family get together for my 26th birthday which is tomorrow (3/7/78).
I received some items for my birthday but my most favorite is what my parents got me without me even knowing they ordered it. My parents got me the Master Replica LE Anakin Skywalker lightsaber from Episode 2. ...and they complain that I have too much Star Wars stuff.
It is a heavy piece. Heavier than the previous MR lightsabers. The size is also much smaller in diameter than I remember much like the Count Dooku saber. But when I think about the saber on display at C2 yeah it is accurate in size.
The grips on the hilt of the saber are made of rubber so they are a bit soft. Not like the plastic grips used on the other sabers. That is my only concern of this saber.
Also I noticed that the saber shown in the E2 Visual Dictionary is WRONG. The image in the book is mirror imaged so the little LEDS are on the wrong side of the saber. So if anyone recreated this saber using the image in the Visual Dictionary their saber is wrong.
Anyways. The saber is nice. It looks good in my saber case. Yes I pack the display cases that come with the sabers away. I now have all the main character lightsabers plus a Lego Saber replica. Take a look.
I think I have all the lightsabers that I want from Star Wars unless there is a new one used in E3 by a main character that has not been seen yet.
Then if it is availabe I will get that one. As far as I am concerned the lightsabers for Obi-Wan and Anakin in E3 are the same as the ones used in E4+ just with a different belt attachment. They are basically the same sabers so I will not go for those.
So does anyone else have this saber? What do you think?
