When I took this out to take pictures I tested with new batteries and the lightsaber works Please note, the light on the saber isn't extremely bright although the room i was taking pictures is wasnt dark at all. Sideshow later improved upon their lightsaber lights, but that was later on in the premium format line.
That being said, I would recommend not keeping batteries inside this piece because the batteries will corrode over time if you forget about it. And I also found that I wasn't really reaching to turn on the light when I had this figure displayed, as it is a stunning piece on its own. Please see pictures for condition. While displayed, this piece has no flaws. One thing I would like to note is that on her neck where you place the head during assembly, there is some small paint wear from what I assume is putting the head on and off.
This area is completely concealed when the head in on the figure. Also, her lightsaber has developed a slight patina. There is minor damage to one of the inside white styrofoam packing pieces, but this has no effect on the figure itself, and will not affect the protection of the piece.
