Does anyone here own any of these replicas, I've been looking online and was thinking of purchasing a Luke ROTJ one.

If anyone has ever purchased any model of these, feedback would be appreciated, I just want to know if they are worth the price, in quality, ability to have fun with and how realistic to the movies they are.

I keep going to buy Vader's one but change my mind at the last minute as $250NZD seems steep but I want one so much!
Let them hate so long as they fear.

check out the website ultrasabers. As well as FX saber (Darth Maul's included), they even create many of their own.

You should check out this site: http://www.fx-sabers.com/forum/

You'll find many custom sabers and those who can give you good info on what to buy. You might want to take a look at this saber here: http://www.fx-sabers.com/forum/index.php?topic=26297.0

Its not for sale and still being worked on (page 9 has the lastest pics) but its based on Satele's saberstaff (from TOR). Also its a pretty good example as to what some of these guys can do.

i have a couple, they're great for show and the hilts are extremely high quality. The blade's are a tad weak, while they can survive mild impacts, you dont want to go into full on stuntman mode with them.

i've heard of conversion kits that use stronger binds on the LEDs and a thicker blade shell, but never tried them.

Still, the prices drop quickly if you can find them locally (i got 2 at a Frye's for under $150) and they cool as heck.
