I was checking out the toys tonight and I saw the new lightsabers. Like a lot of the other toys, they looked cheaper than the previous ones. THe detailing seemed a little softer. Maybe it’s me. What struck me though was Mace’s lightsaber. Has anyone here seen it? It looks nothing like Maces. The design looks like Darth Maul’s saber cut in half with a purple blade attached to the wrong end. Corrent me if I’m wrong, but I remember there being a correct Mace episode II saber. What’s even odder is when one wonders who they expect to fool. There are two pieces of art on the box of Mace Windu brandishing his lightsaber. Anyone who glances at it could easily see that it’s completely different. Any ideas how this happened?
