    I pre-ordered the Darth Maul FX lightsabers from BBTS and i just got an e-mail today saying that my preorder is being processed. If any of you ordered from BBTS, you can be expecting to get your staff saber soon :)

    Well lookie there...and I just filed my tax return. I think I've found this year's splurge item.

    'Course, if I'd filed sooner, I'd have the money already and could go get it now. :redface2:

    I'd like to get it, but $200 is a bit much to drop on anything right now. It is very cool that they finally made a double bladed one though (not to mention how long its going to be)

    I personally own Anakin's EpIII (can be considered to be Luke's EpIV as well) that I got at Celebration 3 here in Indy and it is a very amazing thing. I've tried talking my wife into letting me get others but she says its not worth it (until I pointed out the earrings I got her for Xmas were $200 equalling $100 per earring, just shy of what i paid for it).

    Also, I'd like if they could find a way to make the blades detachable since I'm never going to be able to justify a $300 for the scaled replicas. I like how they have a dueling videol but tell you they're not meant for dueling.

    I don't buy any SW products (except SWTF.. don't shoot me) but I am tempted to get Vader and Maul's after a guy at a toy shop demostrated one of those for a customer. It's a very nice item to have for display and occasional fun. The price tag's bit too high for me though. :(

    I picked up the Vader and Anakin. They're pretty cool.... especially when you sneak into your roomie's room at three in the morning, turn it on, and start yelling "TONIGHT YOU DIE!" while swinging it wildly around. :D

    I'd like that Mace Windu one myself, but I'm not a big enough SW fan to justify it, just yet. Many Tf's I would rather get with that same money.

    Still they are increadable cool, anyone have the Windu one yet, I am wondering what the purple is like in person, may be tempted just yet. :)

    I've got Windu's, along with Anakin's and Vader's.

    The purple is pretty decent in real life, though slightly "wavy" since it's actually blue and red leds alternating back and forth up the blade. But turn down the lights and pop in some fresh batteries and it's pretty convincing. Not quite as bright as the other two, but still pretty decent.

    And I WILL own Maul's. It's my favorite saber of the entire Star Wars saga, and one of my favorite characters. It will be mine. Oh yes, it will.
