I was on a regular window shopping with my family and behold I saw a offer poster that originally SGD$49.90 Darth Maul Lightsaber are on special promotion for just SGD$12.00.
You kidding me? I got a further affirmation at the cashier when she scanned the barcode and double checked the price as she exclaimed "Just 12 dollars?". I replied "That's why I bought one."
Now do note that this version of the lightsaber is a version without light and sound (and they still priced it at the SGD$50!). This is just for kids to play and make their own light saber sound effect as they play along..
Here are the feature of the saber. First the blades can be fully collapsible that only show the Lightsaber handle by itself.
Here is how it look out of box with the blades collapsed.
It was said that when the bladed are extended, it can goes to over 5 feet.
Now in order for the blades to be extended, you have to push these button and swing.
If you need to extend both end, you need to press both and swing at the same time.
Here is how I did that.
First hold the lightsaber with your hand and ensure your palm press and hold the two silver buttons in the middle.
Next with one fluid motion, swing or flip the lightsaber and both blade will extend out instantly.
That's how you "Turn on" the Darth Maul's lightsaber like a Boss. :P
Anyway this is really a fun toy to swing and play about. Personally I keep the lightsaber as a collapsed mode as it look decent to be the real lightsaber of Darth Maul.
For just 12 bucks, this is a catch. Only Darth Maul's lightsaber has this collapsed blade version tho.
That's all for today toy review. Do you think this is worth the price?
