Light Up Lightsabers?

Does anyone actually like this concept? I find it annoying that now even Lego figs have action features.

Eh, I think it looks pretty cool, and not too obtrusive of an "Action Feature", perse.  I don't think I want to start seeing those come standard though, but it's a fun little gimmick there.  What absolutely sucks though, is that it looks like they're gonna make you buy a stupid Tie Fighter re-release just to get one.  That's lame.  Taking lessons from Hasbro, Lego seems to be...   ::)

Completely agree, MAC. I'll probably pass on it just because of that. Thats one of the reasons I passed on the TIE Collection. I don't need anymore TIE Fighters.

Didn't I read somewhere that the ROTS Lego sets are going to have light up lightsabers?  I actually think it's a pretty cool idea.

Oh, the light up lightsabers are VERY cool!  But releasing it with a repacked item - very UNCOOL.    I agree Matt, did Hasbro recently buy out Lego?   ;D  Because it appears the same dumbassed thinking is leaching its way into this line too.   ::)

The Mustafar Lego set has light up sabers on Obi and Anakin.  I saw it at WalMart about a week ago.  I almost bought one, but I really need to wait.

My only gripe about them so far is that Windu's doesn't look purple enough.  I like the light up sabers.

Is there a way to buy just the mini figure with the light-up saber??
