    I have that exact lightsaber and I used to have lightsaber fights with my brothers and I would often use that one because of how much I love darth maul and I honestly teared up when I saw this one all taken apart like that. I wish mine was in as good condition as the one you took apart

    Does it still make sounds? I have been thinking about scavenging one for my next build.

    yeah, the circuit is fully functional, you would probably want to put better switches though, these are kind of cruddy.
