If like me you have any children who are into the whole star wars thing, then this is a must have. I have seen the plastic light sabres on the high street for £24.99 and was going to buy my child one as part of their Christmas box. I was lucky to find this on play and thought for an extra £10.00 it looked like a much better purchase. Having seen reviews on you tube I can honestly say that the sabre looks frightingly real. The suggested retail price is £69.99 so I think this is a great deal!!!
