Star Wars is one of the most famous movie franchises in history. It’s about a fight between good and evil when the dark side tries to rule the Galaxy. The heroic Jedi Knights use their powers to protect peace and justice for all. To celebrate this excellent movie series, we offer a replica of the famous lightsaber used by Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader.
These lightsabers are not toys or weapons. They are merely collectibles that look like the ones in the movies. But they have a simple switch on them so you could pretend to turn them on and off while playing with your friends. Please do not buy these to hit people! You can get a better one for less money if you want to do that.
The best place where you can get this replica lightsaber is probably at the official Star Wars shop. However, these are not available all the time and are rather expensive (about $100) when they are in stock. You can also find them on eBay or other online stores, but be careful with fakes! The same seller may sell the same model to many different people, so make sure you read the feedback. But if you want to buy them at regular price (about $30), here are some tips to know which ones are legitimate:
-The lightsaber has an adjustable beam. You can see this very extremely in the movies when they shine it on something else.
-The lightsaber has a clear plastic button on the handle. This is used to turn it on and off, just like in the movies. They need to turn it on and off because this is how they tell if it’s real or not if you see one in public.
-This lightsaber does not come with a belt holder. Instead, it comes with a plastic case and has an on/off switch on the side of the handle.
-The lightsaber is very light and is not made of metal. It’s mostly made of cheap plastic parts that will break if you try to hit someone with it (which you shouldn’t do…).
-It should come with a box and the words “STAR WARS” printed on it. Some eBay sellers may try to sell you a fake one because they know it’s worth more without those things.
So now that you’ve learned a little bit about how much this replica lightsaber costs and where to get it, here are some common questions that people ask to help you decide if it’s right for you.
#1 Where can I buy one?
These are not normally available at all times, so you have to get them when Star Wars releases a new movie. They may release more of them afterward, but this should give you an idea of how hard it is to get one at a regular price.
#2 Are the white and blue ones different?
Yes, they are different lightsabers. The blue has a precise blade, whereas the white has a colored “energy beam” effect. So if you love the color blue, you should get this one! If you want to be more like Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker, you should get white.
#3 What is it made of?
It’s a plastic toy with a small LED light on it. It doesn’t have anything to do with real lightsabers, so don’t try hitting someone (even playfully) with it…
#4 Can I turn off the lightsaber?
Yes, it’s got an on/off button in the handle. Just like in the movies!
#5 Is it worth it?
Well, that depends on you and your expectations. It looks great and is a good collectible for Star Wars fans. However, don’t expect to become an expert duelist when playing with friends at home. It’s just a toy, and it gets broken easily. So you may want to consider this before purchasing one.
#6 Where can I get the best deal?
As we said, the best place to get it is on the official Star Wars store. They make very high-quality collectibles, and they will most likely not fake them like some other online stores. The problem is that they are very expensive, so if you’re looking for a cheaper option, check out eBay.
#7 What are the dimensions?
It comes with a clear plastic shell that measures about 12 inches by 2 inches by 3/4 of an inch thick. The lightsaber itself measures about 11 1/2 to 12 inches long.
#8 What is the range of the lightsaber?
There is no official answer to this question. If you’re thinking about duels like in Star Wars, forget it! Don’t even try hitting someone with this lightsaber because it’s not made to do that. You can hit things or people playfully, but I don’t think it can stand against anything serious. It’s not a toy blaster either; it only shines the LED light at the end of the saber.
#9 Can I use it as a flashlight?
Yes, you can! Just remember that it’s got an adjustable beam like in Star Wars (the original trilogy). That means that if you adjust it to a wide beam, it will shine more intensely. If you adjust it to the narrow beam, the lightsaber will only give off light when you are in close quarters.
#10 Where can I get extra blades?
This is not something that comes with the lightsaber, so if you want spare parts for this replica, you should check out Zia Sabers.
#11 Can I use it as a real weapon?
No. Just like we said before, don’t try swinging this thing around and hitting things with it, or you’ll break it, and then you’ll be really disappointed. Even if the saber didn’t come with a warning symbol on the handle that says “Don’t swing me around like a madman,” you should still know that it will break if you swing it like crazy.
#12 What’s the deal with the weathering on this lightsaber?
Some people think that this lightsaber can block or deflect blows because of the weathering (the dark worn-out looking spots). On most replica lightsabers, they usually have to weather to make it look more real. However, on this lightsaber, the weathering is more decorative than anything else. So please don’t try getting any ideas about Jedi powers or anything like that.
