Awesome picture David!  What's the 5th saber you have in there, a custom?

Also, I assume that's the ROTJ Luke one in the middle there.  It doesn't look very green though.  Is it just the picture, or is that how it looks in real life?  I was hoping it would stand out and contrast against the blue (Anakin) one a lot more...

Also, does the Mace saber have the same "firing up" ignition that the Vader one has, or is it just regular like the Anakin and Luke ones?

Great photo!!  I never got Anakin's so I only have the four recent ones.  I am waiting to see what Philip comes up with for a display piece.  I'm not fond of the verticle one they have shown so I am hoping for a pick between vertical or horizontal.  My only complaint is I wish you could control the "power up" noise because I'd like to turn them on and leave them lit but the sound is annoying.

OK, am I having a total brainfart now?  Are there really five altogether?  I only though it was Anakin's blue, Vader's red, Luke ROTJ's green, and Mace's purple.  Is there a fifth one that I don't remember?  An Obi-Wan blue, perhaps?  Oy, someone please explain to this senile old man what's going on...   :P

Thanks!

There are two Luke's:  ESB and ROTJ.  The blue one just came out along with Mace's.

The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

Jedi Knight Luke's saber is more of a teal color than green.

I am currently working on a display to put these on.

When you have completed it, make sure to post pictures and/or links.  I'm still waiting for Philip to put up the final displays that they have been working on.  I want mine close together but am reluctant to use the original display stands nailed to the wall.

And yes, Matt...you need to catch up.   :-*

MR's upcoming FX lightsabers for 2005, courtesy of Adam:

Anakin Skywalker FX Lightsaber Ep. III--Q2
Darth Vader FX Lightsaber Ep. V--Q2
Obi-Wan Kenobi FX Lightsaber Ep. III--Q3
Darth Vader FX Lightsaber Ep.III--Q3

All I gotta say is TWO MORE Vaders?  That makes 3 altogether.  Why?  Another Anakin?  Different than the first one?  A little shorter, I'd assume...

As usual, I'll probably wait to find a good price on these before finally biting on them.  Definitely some great collectibles though.  Some of my all-time favorites, actually.   8)

Borders is getting the F/X Ep.III Anakin and Ep.V Vader this week (some already have gotten them) and there is a 15% off coupon on Borders.com for 1 item that you can use for a saber:

I'm seriously debating picking one of these up.  All I have right now are the minis.  Is an F/X worth buying guys and gals?

For me, the f/x sabers are nice because my more expensive props are mainly a "hands-off" display where these are fun since you can light 'em up when showing them off and are pretty well made.  My nephews liked swirling them around to hear the sounds as well as seeing the glowing blade.  They are, however, not quiet when you turn them on and it's hard to just keep more than one lit up at one time due to that very reason.

All in all, I like them and will be picking up the new ones as well.

Seems Canada will be getting the Master Replicas Force FX lightsabers at TRU according to Shane at RS. Keep an out eye out in May and they should ring in at $149.99 Cdn. About time we get something decent up here.  8)

Still, under $100 on ebay (at times) plus shipping and if you miss the customs fees, it's cheaper that way.  14% tax drags it right up to $170 ::)

I don't see how you guys survive with a 14% tax I really dont. Is that Nationwide or uh...not states...damn...oh, Provincewide?

I couldn't stand it. I'd freak out. I hate the 8% already, and there's rumor that they want to jack it up to 9%.

Sheesh.

14%...If that happened here people would riot in the streets and turn over bus's and cars!
