    Last one of my collection: Double bladed Maul lightsaber.

    Company: TXQSaber, from TXQ Saber Store in Aliexpress.

    Very well made, all in aluminium with 10 differents options of colours, differents sounds and effects.

    Would say that is 85-90% movie accurate.

    I have two issues with this one: The activate button is not comfortable and when you put both hilts together the red buttons don't align. As I just use them as a display (never to play or cosplay) its not a big issue for me.

    The delivery was fast, less than a week, and for free and I also didn't pay anything for customs. Good deal.

    My last acquisition arrived:

    Ben Kenobi's saber from the classic SW, A New Hope.

    Loved the details and how accurate it is (even if this is cleaner version).

    Bought it from Damien Sabers from Aliexpress.

    Just would like to share some uptades that I made in my collection.

    I bought two new sabers, Luke's ROTJ and Maul's TPM, to replace for the old ones that I bought some months ago.

    These nem sabers are much more movie accurates and very well made, specially for the low price paid.

    First Luke's one. A TXQ Sabers replacing an YDD Sabers:

    Bought the Kylo's saber from Disney.
    Very well detailed and very heavy.
    Would like to know if this model that I have is older or newer than that model that comes in the grey box from the Disney Parks.

    Fun collection, Messi. I'd be tempted to display them so they all turn on at once with the light switch when you enter the room.

    Mines are without the blades in a display. I just put the blades on when I want to show them to my daughter or some friends that come over.

    Here's a fun story. When I was a young kid, I got hold of some white plastic golf club tubes, and taped them to flashlights to make poor boy's lightsabers.

    I grew up next to my uncle's farm, and my cousin and I used iron rods (for fence building, I guess) in our "lightsaber" duel. I almost took his eye out, once... The poop we got up to!

    You had the high ground. We didn't have healing powers like the young jedis today. When you took out an eye, it was out.
    Glad I'm not a kid today. I'd probably make a headtorch unicorn horn lightsaber. Blocks those incoming eye strikes.
