No disrespect to the other two reviewers, but this torch is a good item for the price. Eight pounds, and for that you get a replica saber hilt, a sound effect and a good light from the torch. Not sure how many torches everyone has bought that are metal, it's a minority I'd say.
If you want a metal replica of any sort, you are talking a lot more than the price of this torch, even at rrp. The scaled Master Replica hilts cost a great deal more and are less than half the size, have no sound effect or light.
If you want a pretty good looking replica that's a torch, this is for you. If you want a full sized replica that's metal, spend a hundred or so more. If you want an ordinary torch, go to Wickes! But seriously, what do you expect for eight pounds, including postage?
