I really couldn't stand the vibration effect in this saber so tonight I performed a little lightsaber surgery. I removed all of the screws in the handle and popped it open. The seams of the two halves are lightly glued, so you have to use a little effort. It doesn't come apart at the end where the blade attaches, so you have to just wedge it open. On the inside you'll see a yellow capsule - this is the vibrator. You'll see two wires going into the side of it, black and red. All you have to do is snip these wires. Snap everything back together, put back the screws, and you have a much improved lightsaber!!
