    The amp is the 8 pin chip near the speaker pads. It's a pretty standard component. There are a number of other things that could also have been zapped, does the saber light up and everything? Reverse polarity also probably zapped the SD card.

    You can send a PM to Zook, who handles repairs in the US. He would let you know how much it would cost to get repaired. However, I doubt that he could get it turned around by Halloween.
