It depends on whether you want to carry around a large (ish) droid on your back all day during the heat of summer. And whether you want to take it with you on Rock'n'Rollercoaster, ToT or the new Millennium Falcon ride, hoping it doesn't get bashed around.

I guess you might want to carry it around GE for an hour or two but perhaps not the rest of the day whilst looking around the rest of HS.

(Plus, it also depends on whether you spent extra money on the backpack or just opted for the standard cardboard box. I wouldn't want to carry around the cardboard box during those afternoon showers).

I hope they do, we'll be looking to get 2 home!

The blade comes off relatively easily from what Ive read

What I can find an answer for is the quality of the blade,
I know some people are complaining about lagging sound but they look so cool!

I'm a member of a star wars costuming group and know a lot of people from the Star Wars costuming community, and the opinion I've heard is that the built lightsabers are some of the highest quality they've ever seen, so I think they'd be reasonably strong.
Having said that I'm not sure if they'd be strong enough for a really brutal lightsaber fight!

What do the droids actually do say when you are back home?

When you press a button on the remote control which controls the movement and head rotation they jabber in droid speak (the bleeps and buzzes etc). If you have one of the personality chips they sell it alters the patterns and tones according to the chip, whether its a resistance, first order, smuggler.As i said earlier in the thread if you have two and put them next to each other, then after a short while they start "chatting" to each other triggered by Blue tooth I believe. Have seen a pair of them doing that on a video in someone's hotel room. The remote controls the motion as I said earlier. The remote has 2 AAA batteries, and the droids run on 6 AA batteries I think. On the remote you have buttons that control forward/backward and right/left motion and spinning the head section
