The point being, the lightsaber is, without doubt, the greatest pretend weapon in the entire sci-fi universe. These iconic red-hot rapiers are to weaponry what Darth Vader is to villainy. And there isn't a Star Wars fan alive who hasn't fantasised about wielding one in all its glowing, pshwooing, vhzzhhing, wuhmming glory. And now, thanks to your Jedi-loving friends here on Fireboxooine, you can get your mitts around the most jaw-droppingly realistic replica in the galaxy.
Star Wars Force FX Lightsaber The gorgeously crafted Force FX Lightsaber really is an elegant weapon for a more civilized age. Not as clumsy or as random as a blaster, this makes other imitation lightsabers look like, er, imitations. Fully licensed by Lucasfilm, the limited edition Force FX is fashioned in gleaming metal with a durable polycarbonate blade, and it feels like a real lightsaber the par-sec you pick it up.
But here comes the good bit: once activated, the blade glows brightly and the Force FX reverberates with digitally recorded sound effects taken directly from the film, including power-up, idle-hum, swing, clash and power-down. The spine-tingling sounds are activated via five super-sensitive motion sensors, three of which are in the blade to detect movement and impact.
Luke Skywalker Green The eye-popping light effects are produced by a string of 64 super-bright LEDs that ignite sequentially inside the permanently attached blade. The Force FX even comes with a handsome stand for tabletop or wall display. If this doesn't excite your inner Jedi, nothing will!
