If you are reading this, you have probably already made up your mind about buying one of these. I guess its down to what lightsaber you want.
There is no difference in quality between the different versions, only the ascetical and personal preference that goes with any type of purchase.
The hilt feels heavy in your hand and it looks like a real lightsaber, the chrome gains a nice shine and the plastic doesn't detract from the feel at all.
When it powers up you are greeted with the original sounds from the movies, you feel like you are holding a real lightsaber, minus the solid beam of energy of course.
The price may be relatively high, however in terms of quality, this is worth the extra money instead of buying a £25 plastic one. It is a great conversation piece and while everyone may say "You spent that much!", secretly inside they will be thinking "I want one".
Before I conclude, I'd just like to make the note that these were originally made by a company called Master Replicas, but are now made by Hasbro and you may notice this when you research.
So if you have aspirations about being the next Darth Vader, or if you just like the colour red, this one is for you. Not to be missed.
