"I got one of the mystery boxes and I liked what I received. My first order of a saber was a custom one with the obsidian soundboard and some personal bells and whistles, and I paid pretty well for it (and I'm VERY satisfied with that one too). The mystery box on the other hand gives me a second, far cheaper lightsaber. I'm assuming I got one that was pretty middle of the line- no sound, simple power switch- but the blade is the same dueling quality, and is longer than my first one so I have a couple length options. The body of the saber as well is still high quality machined. These mystery boxes are pretty tight."
