So as part of the final Mando Monday, Hasbro put up the Force FX Darksaber fro pre-order.  This is the first Force FX Saber I've seen sell out on Pre-order!   :o

One of the bright spots in Hasbro's livestream today was the reveal of the Rey Skywalker lightsaber.  I've seen reviews of the Galaxy's Edge version and the Hasbro version actually looks like the more accurate prop replica!  The Hasbro version actually uses the correct switch and has the more accurate light up sequence!

I'm not an FX Lightsaber collector, although I've got the Yoda version.  I am however very tempted to pick this one up as it looks super cool.

I kinda want it too.  I got most of the ones I have on clearance including the OG build a Sabre from RadioShack (it’s my fav).  The last I got was a Kylo Ren at Ross and I love it too.  But they’re definitely space hogs and finding wall space isn’t easy for these.  Plus I don’t want them stored anywhere outside without heat and AC.  Chromed stuff takes some care to keep it nice.

But that Rey sabre is awfully nice and among the iconic ones I’d kinda like to have.  Certain ones look good together I think, and hers would look cool with ROTJ Luke and ANH Luke or ROTS Anakin ones, and Kylo’s.

I found that wall mounting them in my collection room is the way to go!  They look nice and you get the added benefit of ambient lighting!

Check out my room tour to see how I did it.

So, nearly a year after I placed my pre-order.  My Darksaber is on it's way from Hasbro Pulse.  It's been delayed three times!  I feel sorry for the delivery guy when I announce to him that the Darksaber can only be won in combat.   :D

Review of the Black Series Elite Darksaber.

I need to go back and look at reviews of the Galaxy's Edge legacy version...I know the blade wasn't the greatest for tht one, but I would like to do a comparison of the two hilts.

Nice when a preorder ships a little early!  I should get my Rey Skywalker saber middle of next week.

I saw on social media that the Rey Force FX lightsaber turned up at Target stores.  Has anyone ever seen another instance of a Force FX lightsaber at either Target or Walmart before?  I've seen them at GameStop before, but never a big box store.

I saw a Kylo Ren Force FX at a Target once and it was clearly a Target.com purchase that was returned to the store.  It had an "As Is" 15% off clearance tag on it.

I've never seen a Force FX elite saber on the shelves at a retailer (outside of Gamestop which sells collectibles) before.

I picked up my Black Series Kylo Ren saber in a Toys R Us back in 2015, but that's not an elite version.

Nice news for Target shoppers in Vegas though!

My Hasbro Black Series Elite Edition Rey Skywalker lightsaber review.

I really like this saber!  It is very movie accurate as a prop replica and has some cool electronic effects.
