Sabertrio Skylar FX Lightsaber

One holy grail completed
I was once asked what would I need in my collection in order to be proud of. There are a few things in my list. One of them is the Hot Toys 1:6 scale 1989 Batmobile. Another item would be in the form of this clue: "This is the weapon of a Jedi Knight. Not as clumsy or random as a blaster. An elegant weapon for a more civilized age." - Obi-Wan Kenobi. Lightsabers. Who doesn't dream of owning one?  Can't really remember when I first started watching Star Wars but I remember that I have always wanted one and any stick or a long object will be instantly turned into one.
When news was out that Hasbro plans to release the FX sabers in 2008, I was very excited thinking finally I can have my very own lightsaber. In case you have been living under a rock, the FX sabers "are high quality reproductions that light up and create sound effects when powered-on, powered-off, and when they impact objects. These sounds replicate the movie sound effects, to create a high quality display toy." - Wikipedia. I remember going to TRU constantly checking for new stocks but the only ones available was the Ultimate FX, buildable lightsabers and electronic lightsabers with extending blades.

My how time flies. Half the year has gone by. This will be a simple update post as life got in the way of completing the review of Grimshell. I will try to find time to complete the second post of Grimshell.
The main reason for this post is to give an update regarding the Nikon Vignette which was mentioned ages ago. Was suppose to link the video right after I got the green light from Nikon but it must have slipped my mind. Anyways, below is the video link to of the vignette:
