More like $90, actually. :p

Just consider it being that you only spent a fraction of the money that Edgar Allan Poo is going to bring your way!

My nephew got one, I figured out a way to make it look like the robot was cranking it when my nephew was in another room. My brother in law and I were laughing really hard and when my nephew came in we said we were laughing because it fell down.

A friend of mine has 2 of these... another friend with poor impulse control proved they can't handle much combat before the LEDs start going out...

Are the Darth Maul sabers all that hard to find? I seem to have a difficult time locating them here in Oklahoma, and I am dying to get one for my son and I.

He also has the Anakin/Vader saber. The talking Yoda saber, and like 5 of the non-lighting telescoping ones for Luke, Vader, Windu, and Obi-Wan, I think.

all the force fx you can handle: http://masterreplicas.com/store/star_wars/

you save $40 by buying the darth mauls as a set instead of seperately.

(I bought an Indiana Jones hat for 145 Deutsch Marks 10 years ago. :Oops: )

I bought the vader on a few years ago for about 60.

The windu one I got free, after a heavy spend at the comic shop. I just asked the owner to chuck one in and he did :D

The 2 last night I got for 40 each. 20% off the normal store price.

Holy crap! That's some high dollar sabers. I was thinking they had made something like a "make your own lightsaber set" more on the end of toys then replicas.

I'll probably get a set for me and him, but it will be for when he is older. He's only four years old now.

Edit: Nevermind I clicked on the wrong one . . . I see the $40 or so ones.

I've seen those before, were they bad quality or something?

the only luke ROTJ saber they(master replicas) made was several years ago, and they changed their design since then. the handles are smaller(more to actual scale) and they have more motion sensors and sounds. i'm just waiting for them to make the ROTJ with the updated design.

Master Replicas is the actual manufacturer of the FX sabers. you can find them a little cheaper elsewhere. amazon has the double maul saber for $150
thats $50 cheaper than from the manufacturer.

Sabers for sale or rent.
I live in my basement.
No girl, no cash, no life,
I know Cable's not the clone of the villain Stryfe.
I bathe, maybe once every week.
The messageboard's the friend I seek.
I'm a man of means by now means,
King of the Nerds.

Kidding. I just wanted to write nerdy lyrics to "King of the Road."
