Great display piece!
on 6 April 2015
The price seems to fluctuate by as much as 30% on here so I'd wait until it goes down. Other than that, the product is made from nice durable materials in the main - has a good weight having a metal hilt although the power on/off button is incredibly cheap looking and feeling which stands out badly against the great feel of the hilt it sits on.
As the LEDs are placed throughout the length of the blade they come on in sequence which really creates the power on and off look from the movies really well. The lighting effect means that the blade seems to extend from the hilt and retract into it when turned on and off which is great (obviously it doesn't but in the dark it sure does look that way)!
The blade itself is bright and the LEDs are clear.
Quick tip: the clash sound did not work when I got this powered up for the first time. After some research I discovered that you need to train the lightsabre to react to impacts by using it. Sure enough after a while of banging it gently into a convenient softish surface the clash sound started to work.
