Greetings, all!  I am new here, venturing into my first SW experience -- I have been a Masters level costumer for some years, but I am finally falling to the Star Wars side! I do not want to make my first saber, and I'm so glad I was referred here.

I've been on the site/forums for a couple of hours, but I haven't seen this question addressed:  If I order a grab bag saber, am I likely to get one valued at more than the cost of the grab bag item?

Example: say I order a grab bag saber with metal hilt and colored blade, totaling $70. I would be disappointed to receive an Initiate saber, which could be had for $15 less, or even a Dominix or Aeon or SI, which I could have hand-selected for less. I would be thrilled to receive a Prophecy, and I would tap dance with glee if I unboxed a Dark Prophecy LE. Gorgeous!

The question is, if we sacrifice control for a bargain, will we still receive a bargain?

Thanks in advance!  I am presently choosing options for the soon-to-be-ordered Dominix; the grab bag saber would be a secondary item. Smiley

Welcome first Smiley
Well I offered my friends the lowest blade (the Initiate) just after I looked for the Grab-Bag Sabers.. because you pay less Smiley
I wouldn't get an Grab Bag, when youre able to choose a other blade.. the Grab Bag is good, when you want to build your own saber, but you don't know where to get a hilt. Smiley
So when you look for a saber and don't want to get surprised.. get the Dominix Smiley
May the force be with you!

You only get full sized sabers from the grab bag, never an Initiate.   The grab bag is a bargain if you don't care what color/hilt you get.  If you're going to select the blade color, a blade, and hilt type, then going the grab bag route may not be a bargain because you very well could get a Standard Issue, which is normally $5 less.  On the other hand, you could get a Redemption and save $29.  But, sometimes, you just gotta roll the dice  Wink

I've personally been itching to try the grab bag option (with no preferences selected) just to see what I get... I figure it might be fun to see what kind of random saber I would receive.  Like Ultra said, it's a bit of a gamble, which seems cool to me.
