I too have the Rock Bottom MR Ani Saber... It is an excellent buy for $24.99 plus S&H. Mine works fine, lights up and makes noise. However I knew it was a real crapshoot at the "less than new" price. TI, when you say take it apart, what exactly do you mean? I do not believe the blade comes off... Also... Does anyone out there have doubles in: Mcquarrie Trooper, Wat Tambor, Bail Organa, Lama Su & Clone, Ephont Mon, or Luke Throne Rm. Duel?
