Finally – Fully customisable lightsabers for any scenario

1 min read


The lightsaber. Not as clumsy or random as a blaster; an elegant weapon for a more civilized age. For over a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic. And they looked super-awesome badass as they enforced justice with their laser swords of arm-severing death. Having evolved over the decades, the lightsaber has become a weapon that is more than just a mere sword. There have been whips, staffs and the more controversial crossguard version of the venerable blade over the years. Fortunately, I now have the chance to make my own stupid alternative.

Later this year, Hasbro will release their own line of lightsabers, in the “Bladebuilders” line. It’s a collection of handles and faux blades, that can essentially be snapped together to form any weapon your mind desires. Naturally, I have some terrible ideas already. Speaking to USA Today, Hasbro senior brand director for Star Wars Kim Boyd as a new step in creating something iconic for kids:

Star Wars is such a magical property and in particular the lightsaber is — and I think everyone would agree — the most iconic weapon of all time. This is the first time we’ve given kids the chance to customize through an entire system.

And I dig it. If you’ve never picked up a stick and VVRRRMMMMMM VRRRRMMMMMM sounds, then you’re probably a liar. Everyone has fantasised about wielding a mythical Star Wars lightsaber at least once in their life, and once I attach my iPhone and the right app to one of these replicas, I’m going to feel like a proper Sith Lord.



I’ve got an idea for a triple-trident spinning lightsaber. Which I’m going to use to stab Sandy in the face with. Because that’s how us Sith roll, yo.

  1. One of my mates photoshopped himself as a Jedi. He had the look down. His name is Jaco.

    I would personally like a lightsaber with a black blade (f**k science) that has a curved blade (f**k science again) similiar to a katana.
