Fun, durable & battle ready. Read the shipping story.
Back in 1999 the reveal of Darth Maul's double sided lightsaber in Phantom Menace restored my faith in the awesomeness of Star Wars during an otherwise lackluster prequel up until that point. Fast forward fifteen years and I'm a Dad who has successfully passed the Star Wars obsession to my kids. This lightsaber is one of, if not the coolest, of all the lightsabers and one of my boys really wanted to get it. My family had a Disney World vacation planned and the Star Tours attraction was a must-do. Following the attraction (which is totally awesome!), we made the obligatory 'Exit Through the Gift Shop' to find the best collection of Star Wars memorabilia this side of Mustafar. Inside the gift shop was a build your own lightsaber section that was really cool but just insanely overpriced.
Enter AlumiGogo: One click on the smartphone and this baby was enroute to my hotel...no fuss, no lugging through the park!! Beyond that convenience, this particular lightsaber is constructed way better than the costume accessory ones, so it will hold up to spirited use without cracking and denting. Overall, this was a really worthwhile purchase for us and will most likely be for you if you too are in the market for a Darth Maul toy lightsaber. The process by which I acquired this also worked out great (for convenience and economy) so I wanted to pay that one forward in case you find yourself in a similar situation for this or any other item needed while you are on vacation. Have fun.

Dont recoment for ruff kids
Its a cool little addition for star wars fans but dont recomend if you want it for battleing as it feels awkward and cant only use one blade if you want as the shock opens the other blade
The blades are not as thick as the old pvc light sabers only really good for light play
Now for shipping really quick i placed my order on the 29th of jan 2016 they receved the order and shiped on the 31 of jan 2016
I was told it would arive on the 9th of feb 2016 but it arived on the 5th of feb2016
Also the decoratinc buttons get in the way for holding it properly so in my opinion you may need to break of the decoratinve ones
Will come back to amozon for the shipping is really quick

Awesome for any Star Wars fan!
These were purchased as gift for a friend's kids who are die-hard Star War fans who were screaming with joy after they saw them. Even though my son is not, they sure had a great time playing with these after I had delivered them. Seems pretty durable construction since they were whacking each other with them for a good 45 mins! We had to take them away to get them stop so parents could have a rest from the noise!

Fun But Flimsy
My kids really seem to enjoy this double bladed lightsaber, which is why I gave it three stars. However it is pretty flimsy. We have older versions of the single blade lightsaber. The older ones stay closed when closed and stay open when open. This new one, however does not. The lightsaber part will fall open if it is tipped up. Also, once open it won't stay open. It very easily will close back up. In-fact, there is no mechanism in place to hold the part closest to the "handle" open. My kids don't seem to mind and my oldest says, "Dad, that's just how it's made." If it was made with the same quality as the older ones it would have been awesome.

It is the classical version of course as it doesn't make any sound or has light on it but it is extremely large as it should be. Thought the packaging was a little weak but it arrived safe and sound.

So long but a great product
Though I read the product description, I was still a bit surprised by how long this toy is... especially when being wielded by our 9 year old. Of course he was thrilled by it's length and seems to manage all the tricks just fine, even with the size. I imagine he's going to break something in our house eventually, but he absolutely loves it and I'm very happy with the quality of the toy. If you're looking for a Darth Maul lightsaber that can really take the harsh play of a young boy, I definitely recommend this one.

What got delivered wasn't what was in the video clip ...
What got delivered wasn't what was in the video clip for what I purchased. Then when the 4year old unwrapped it for his birthday it literally fell to bits, and then the stopper which stopped the blade coming out stopped working and the blades have stayed out permanently so I have returned the item.

This has seen many battles against the green, blue, and even red sabers in our household. It has defeated many, and remains strong.

STURDY BUT A BIT MISLEADING-HANDLED THE RETURN GREATLY
WAS UNDER THE IMPRESSION THAT IT LIT UP AND MADE SOUNDS FOR THE PRICE. THE BLADES KEPT GETTING STUCK SO WE WERE FORTUNATE TO BE ABLE TO RETURN IT WITHOUT A PROBLEM. SELLERS LIKE THIS ARE AWESOME! THEY UNDERSTAND AND PLEASE THE CONSUMERS! HAD THE BLADES NOT GOTTEN HARD TO CLOSE I WOULD HAVE KEPT IT BUT WAS SCARED MY TODDLER WOULD HURT HIS HAND FOR TRYING TO HARD. OTHERWISE I'M GRATEFUL FOR THEY'RE RETURN POLICY ON THIS ONE! WOULD BUY FROM HERE AGAIN, BUT OF COURSE A DIFFERENT ONE! THANK YOU

Either way my 6 yr old is very happy with it
Just wished it would light up. You can buy a cheap one from Party City that lights up but it is costume grade so will barely last a day. It seems that for three times the price this thing could light up as well. Either way my 6 yr old is very happy with it.
