My posts are better.
Or you have to be so adept to effectively block with it there's little point. As designed it really only makes sense offensively for cutting other lightsaber handles or to give your opponent something else to worry about up close. (and to look kewl =). I'm sure it'll work for Luke... I mean, the mysterious Sith guy!Aazealh said:Look though, you see how the hilt itself isn't protected?

BTW, if anyone is curious what he may look like, an image of him with that sword has been floating around for a while.
Yeah, but I was stating what would have actually made it worthy of such praise and excitement. And I saw plenty of acquaintances online declaring it incredible as well. These were the same people telling me how Phantom Menace wasn't so bad 15 years ago. Once again, time will tell (except for me, I'll know right away again =).Aazealh said:Well, like I told Walter yesterday, my two immediate male coworkers, who are not in any way big Star Wars fans, had noted the exact time the trailer was going up and proceeded to frantically search for it, declaring it awesome as soon as they'd seen it. Marketing and a big legacy will do wonders.
Not the best perspective for constructive analysis. Your previous statement implies you think it looks "awesome" though.Johnstantine said:I feel like I'm the only one who doesn't give a shit about how the saber looks=/
Which isn't necessarily a bad position, I think it looks neat myself if a bit anachronistic (that whole shot looks like Star Wars crossed with The Hobbit), it's just so clearly about style and change for the sake of change over any kind of sense. Not that that's ever been a problem in Star Wars, the series that brought us Imperial walkers and two fatally flawed Death Stars.
