What do you think, is it worth the extra $25 to get an illuminated AV switch?

It all depends what you want. In the game, the fallen does not have one. So it's all about accuracy vs taste.
For my guardian, my empress, my spectre and my emperor's hand, I did not want an illuminated AV switch.
But I got one for my twin Initiates and I love them.

Here is a pic to help you decide. Also, the pommel is called the Malice round pommel.

Honestly I don't think it's worth it. I like the look of it, but so many other saber companies have illuminated switches built in the base cost that paying an extra $25 for it just doesn't seem worth it.

It is quite expensive, but it's also pretty cool looking. Have to think about it

Yeah but most often than not you can't choose the color or set it easily.

^^I didn't know that - clearly I'm going for taste vs accuracy!  Grin  Outside of the OT & PT films, I have no clue about the lore of these hilts...it's probably interesting research.  But I would agree that the illuminated AV switch is definitely not a 'must' to make a great looking saber...but I tend to add them and I always like the result...
