The Dark Side Beckons

do you feel lucky, Jedi punk?

My cousins are going crazy. We've always been a Star Wars family. Despite the shitty outcome of Episodes I & II, we're all pumped for the grand finale. So much so, they're getting lightsabers. Yes kiddies, the lightsaber you see here is the real deal - well, close to the real deal anyway. It's a Master Replica Force FX Lightsaber.
  • Glowing blades ignites with realistic power-up/down effects!
  • Authentic sound effects digitally recorded from the movie.
  • Features four motion sensor controlled sound effects, Power-up, idle hum, clash, and power-down
  • Durable metal hilt looks and feels like a real lightsaber.
  • Sturdy blade is permanently attached to the hilt
  • Comes with a custom-designed display stand when you need a break from dueling.
So anyway, Dean and Ming are getting one each. And my brother-in-law, AhFook is thinking one getting one too. Problem is, this sweet items is retailing for RM650 a pop at Ultimate Toys in 1U. It's a lot of money. And ultimately, it's just a toy. "I want you to have it," says the most wonderful wife on the planet. How can you not love this woman? Wives are known to beat up husbands for buying frivolous things. "Really? I don't know..." I was awestruck. "And by the time we're done with it, we can leave it to Jesse, as an inheritance." The clever woman's always had a way with words. But notice she said, "We". Something tells me that if we do get it, Mae will be fooling around with it more than I will. It's the Dark Side. It's got her. Hhhehehheh! I'm still contemplating. In other Star Wars related news, Messy Christian (who's seen it, I hate her) thinks Episode III rocked. Elsewhere, Dean, Ming, my brother Jeff and a whole bunch of my friends have gotten their tickets already. On the homefront, Mae wants us to sit down and watch that painful Episode II all over again since we both slept through it the last time. Yup, we're preparing for the finale. Muahahahahah!!! Note: Picture from Walmart. More pictures at ThinkGeek.


  1. Dude, if you get it, I will officially hate you.
    Although if you let me borrow it, I'll gladly give you right arm.

  2. Get it get it get it get it!

  3. Man, I want one too hehe. I have my tickets to the movie already though!

  4. I am a BIG BIG fan of star i would say, go get it!! Unfortunately, i cant watch the movie till my exam is over :(.

  5. And Yoda says, "James, grow up you must!" :-)

  6. what is money? can't bring it with you when u're dead. I say, buy it, enjoy it and die happy.

  7. Hey after you buy it, can I loan it after you are bored with it. Better than collecting dust....:P

  8. Hrm...
    when bored you are with the toy, to me you must give.
    You are a weak minded species that will fall prey to my Mind Tricks.
    You shall give me the saber.
    You shall walk away after that.

  9. woops ... I think the link is broken ... darn auto http.

  10. ThinkGeek sent me a brochure in the mail with it on the front. I told hubby: GET GET! ><
    We're going to watch it with some friends over the weekend, and we have midnite tickets on opening night ^^ wee~
    ThinkGeek rocks! Check out their T-Shirts lol ...
    Also, if you're bored:
    That site makes me drool. ;_; So fun and so totally useless some of the things.

  11. Yoda says : The Force knows who deserves - and its got JAMES name all over it. Get it! Get it!

  12. RM650... can use to whack intruders or not? don't mind me. i'm just a sour grape... ;)

  13. Another wet blanket - with that amount of money, you can do a lot of practical things - you can get at least a Rm30k insurance protection for your next baby for a year. Hehehe.

  14. wooo the FORCE is strong there hehe...
    how about making one your own?? kekeke
    check this, its hilarious

  15. Fui-yoh check it out! Ultra-kewl, James. Jesse has a funky daddy =)

  16. Okay people, I appear (*ahem*) to have come to my senses and have decided not to get one. For now. Heh.
    So, looks like you can like me back now, Sashi!
    Sorry Kat.
    Hmm... I'm disliking you now, Rachel. I still haven't gotten my ticks.
    Emotionalistic: You poor thing. :o( May the force be with you in the exam hall. :)
    Hey Anjali, lightsabers are for grown-ups. :lol:
    Hahhah... yes MOO+1, I'd like to die happy.
    Looks like you'll have to get your own now, Michelle. :)
    Hahhah, looks like you'll have to save your Jedi mind tricks on someone who actually buys one. But, hey, I have a made-in-China torchlight if you like. :lol:
    Thanks Gwen. Or no thanks, depending on which angle you see this. ;)
    Hahha, looks like Yoda's not getting thru this time, Visithra.
    Now I'm officially in the sour grapes gang with you, Belacan.
    Stop selling on my blog, Gina. :P
    Hahhah, yes I have seen that BabeKL!
    Looks like my cool-factor just took a dip, Chun. :o(

  17. Yeah, it was quite a thrill watching it ... b4 everyone! (muahahaha!) =D
    Question: What does one do with a lightsabre in real life?

  18. Messy: Erm... run around looking menacing? :)
