Sure, you can buy a toy lightsaber prop just about anywhere, but if you really want to look the part, you have to go the way that Bradley Lewis did with his gorgeous handmade lightsaber and build your own.
This cool video was released almost two years ago, and I think that it still looks good. Actually, it looks pretty awesome! It features a bunch of guys having a lightsaber duel.
This lightsaber duel was made by Brian Curtin, Mat Powell, and Matt Hall.
May 16, 2010 was the 400th anniversary of the death of Henry IV, King of Navarre and King of France. To commemorate this occasion, fireworks were lit around the statue of Henry IV in Paris.
Also it was encased in neon lights and given a lightsaber.
If you’re trying to set a romantic mood in your bedroom, this is almost certainly not the right way to do it. On the other hand, if you’re a complete Star Wars geek, you’ll have to get your credit card out right now.
It’s taken over half a year since you could find ’em, but these illuminated Lightsaber Bookends are available for pre-order again. You might have noticed – if you have keen eyes – that this lightsaber is none other than Darth Vader’s.
I think George Lucas has now officially licensed the Star Wars brand onto every item in the universe. From trash compactor bookends to Darth Vader mint gum to Jawa garden gnomes. Now you can get your hands on a lightsaber MP3 player.
A while back we featured a video of the versatile Tomy i-SOBOT shooting at a bunch of rectangular sponges with a bow and arrow. It turns out that the hurting didn’t stop there, as YouTube user paxshikai eventually came up with an armory’s worth of custom weapons for his/her robot, including a gatling gun.
Yep, Halloween is barely upon us and here I go jumping the gun with Christmas stuff long before Turkey Day has even arrived. Oh well, calendars be damned. It’s finally time to rid of that boring old star on top of your Christmas tree this year, and swap it out with something much better.
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, lightsabers were used to eat Asian delicacies. No, not really. But now you can. As long as you live in Japan, that is.
These new ChopSaver chopsticks from Kotobukiya are modeled after miniature lightsabers, and are perfect for picking up dumplings, noodles or barbecued Ewok.
The Darth Vader lightsaber flashlight is equipped with 4 LED lights and has various authentic sound effects.
I guess that’s all a lightsaber can do in the hands of mere mortals. I’m also wondering if the red light is any good for illumination, or for adding a sense of dread on dark nights.
I can see how this could be fun, but if you show this to a Star Wars geek he’ll probably shake his head, gather his robes and walk away. Some guy who looks like a mugger took 2 glow sticks, put them together with a link chain and voila!
Just because your primary weapon is a lightsaber, young Jedi, doesn’t mean that you have to be an energy hog when you’re fighting back throngs of Stoormtroopers.
This amusing t-shirt from Ruby Red Design envisions an EnergyStar compliant galaxy far, far away.
If your kids aren’t getting beat up in school enough for your liking, then you could try your hand at these felt lightsaber pencil holders and see if that kicks it up a notch.
Seriously, this is a pretty cool idea, but there is one problem: they don’t actually resemble lightsabers.
Creative lass Zhaddi made this cross-stitch of the famous Han Solo quote for a contest that called for a crafty reinterpretation of a favorite quote. She describes it as “the perfect chance to blend my geeking and crafting.”
