Star Wars’ most iconic weapon, the Lightsaber has come and gone in many shapes and forms as a collectible, but we’re partial to LED Lighstabers. See some really clever depictions in this story!
Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens is dropping really soon, so the Star Wars hype is through the roof. If you want to be the coolest guy or gal at the movie theater once it finally launches, you might as well be carrying some props, and this is where the LED Lightsabers in this story fit it. These aren’t necessarily toy lightsabers, but actual LED tubes that light up in some of the most iconic colors from the movies. Be careful, though, they’re kind of frail and more for show than for deflecting lasers and piercing Storm Troopers!
The Menace CE Lightsaber
The LED lightsaber depicted here is one of the most elegant creations we have seen around the web. This Star Wars Lightsaber replica features an exquisite craftmanship at the hilt, with several details taken straight from the movies. This model is inspired by Darth Maul’s Lightsaber and hence features its characteristic organe glow of the Dark Side. If you feel closer to the Sith than the Jedi, this is the Lightsaber for you.
REBORN DT Custom LED Saber from KOTOR
The Star Wars expanded universe is surprisingly huge, deep and full of lore to explore. One of the best adventures outside the main movies comes straight from the Knights of the Old Republic video game series, and it’s main character Revan’s light saber who inspired this amazing custom design. Because Revan can have any alignment the player desires (Light Side, Dark Side or kind of neutral), this custom saber can switch colors and offer alternatives for the user.
The Azure Omen: A Thundercats Themed Lightsaber
We absolutely love franchise crossing, and when we first saw this amazing design that mixed both the iconic lightsabers from the Star Wars movies with Lion-O’s Sword of Omens from Thundercats, we decided we had to share it with everyone. The Azure Omen is both a playful tribute and an incredibly cool custom made sword that lights up, features the Thundercats logo and reuses the iconic hilt design from the hit cartoon show from the 80s.
Maxx Action Galactic Series Photon Sabers
The Maxx Action Galactic Series Photon Sabers is a very vanilla alternative for those who would rather get the more traditional designs. This is a very cheap alternative for a quick costume, and although it’s completely made out of plastic, it is extremely cheap, and still ights up and features the characteristic sound effect that accompanies each swing that can be activated with the press of a button.
Star Wars Anakin to Darth Vader Lightsaber
Here is a really cool concept for those who love the old trilogy as much as the prequels and consider the transition of Anakin Skywalker to Darth Vader one of the most important stories ever told in the geek world. This LED Lightsaber‘s special trait is that, depending on the wearer’s alignment and preference, it can change colors with the flick of a switch. Now you get to pick whether you prefer to side with the light side or dark side on the spot, which is particularly neat if you are into cosplay.
Star Wars Force FX Lightsabers
This is the real deal. As Obi-Wan Kenobi put it in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, this is an elegant weapon for a more civilized age. With some 30 years of movie history the Lightsabers have become one of the most recognizable weapons in the geek world, and the Star Wars Force FX Lightsaber is one of the few officially licensed versions of it. You get to pick between the blue or green versions, which come with “Force FX”, that is, the capability of accurately reproducing the light and sound effects from the films.
Bladebuilders Star Wars Episode 7 Jedi Master Lightsaber
The Bladebuilders Star Wars Episode 7 Jedi Master Lightsaber is a Padawan’s dream come true. Although more on the toy lightsaber end of the spectrum, this set will allow anyone to build their own custom lightsaber featuring as many or as little “blades” as they want, with interchangeable colors and everything. It’s not only a Jedi weapon, but a tool for self-expression too.
Light Up Laser Lightsaber Sabre Sword 29″ (3 PACK)
This is very straight-forward. What you see here is a Light Up Laser Lightsaber Sabre Sword 29″ 3 pack that features one lightsaber of each color: green, blue, and red. The size is particularly cool, as it’s long enough so it can also be a prop for adults.
Star Wars Ezra Bridger Lightsaber Blaster
This beauty was inspired by Ezra Bridger’s iconic weapon from the Star Wars Rebels TV Show, and is meant for children who like the show. The Star Wars Ezra Bridger Lightsaber Blaster features a blade that extends with a switch, which is fantastic for play, and is quite cheap at only $34.99 – this would definitely make a fantastic Christmas present for the young Padawan in the family.
Custom Star Wars Rebels Kanan Jarrus Lightsaber
The blade you see here is inspired by former Padawan and order 66 survivor Kanan Jarrus, from the Star Wars Rebels TV show. This lightsaber is made from Aircraft Grade Aluminum and is 13″ Long. It comes with a super bright Luxeon LED, and whoever buys it gets to pick the color (either red, blue, green or white. It runs on 2 AAA Batteries and fits any 1″ Diameter Blade.
