Vader ANH-Quick thoughts
« on: May 15, 2007, 06:52:15 PM »
Just recieved my Vader ANH from the Sycor group order. Wow, what a great saber. I was a little thrown off at first by the offset clamp but then checked and realized it is accurate. The red blade seems to be a little brighter than my Vader ESB. It looks to be a shade lighter than the ESB. Could be the batteries too. And, of course, I took the whole thing apart! Comes apart just like the ESB but does not use the "socket" like some ESB's had. Oh well. Overall great saber. Now just waiting for the Luke ANH to come out! Cheers! Pics to come later.

Mine also appears a little bit brighter as well. I think it's the best Vader saber made yet.

2010...I certainly hope it's better than 2009 was! ::)
10/10/10~Well, so far with my Father's passing away, I'd say that this year was actually worse than 2009, even the fact that I now have a full time job (For now) isn't anywhere near enough to make up for that...so...maybe 2011 will be better? I'm not holding my breath... ::)

Mine however does not have the semi pointed tip that my Obi-Wan has though. Strange.

And neither does mine. I too thought that was strange since my newly acquired Anakin ROTS does have the semi-pointed tip on it. I can only assume that my Anakin was from the very last run of them...

the pointed tips look the same to me...the best rarity (only one i know of), is a STOCK MR ani aotc, but in LED  :o 8) :o 8)
the guy who has it sent it in to MR, and they confirmed their goof, and gave him a COA for it  8) 8)

Nice short review.  The Vader ANH is a nice saber to have. :)


BTW as far as the tips go I noticed the Obi-Wan has it and I think my Anakin ROTS also has the different style tips so I think my Anakin ROTS was one of the last runs.

Edit: I too have the Luke ANH on preorder, can't wait for it.

And I as well have the Luke ANH on pre-order. This thing with MR not renewing the license makes me want to get another Vader ANH and two Luke ANH's so I can have one of each to keep sealed mint. They are after all the 30th Anniversary edition FX sabers.

ALuke, I too heard about that guy getting an Anakin LED AOTC...wasn't sure if it was true or not.

If he is telling the truth I wonder if the Anakin AOTC saber is a prototype and was going to be a new release with the current electronics and smaller hilt..... xxx YOU CORGI!!!!

Sorry....
