Of all the weapons that appear in the 6 Star Wars movies the one that most technophobes or aficionados of this series will want is a Lightsaber. Although over the years toy companies have produced what they considered to be reasonable copies of them. However this all changed with the introduction of the Star Wars FX Lightsabers.
Certainly for those who like to dress up as the characters from these movies such as Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader and Princess Leia. Now they have found a weapon that enables to truly take on the role of their favorite character from the films and compete in close combat fights.
However, the Star Wars FX Lightsabers do cost considerably more than those that you may have seen when the first movies came out. But what you must realize is that not only do these ones look like the real weapons but they sound like them as well.
With the first models that were produced and which are based around the Lightsabers used by Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker and Yoda each one of them has a glowing blade that ignites with the same power up and down effects as seen in the movies. Also the sound effects that emanate from these are the same authentic sounds heard in the movies as they have been digitally recorded from them.
Each one of these Lightsabers comes with four motion sensors that control not just the sound effects, but the power up and down effect, the idle hum and clash. Also they all come with metal hilts that not only look like the ones in the movies but feel like a real Lightsaber as well and are permanently attached to the actual blade and both are very durable and sturdy.
Although the Lightsabers we mention above have proven extremely popular since the release of the last Lightsabers three Star Wars movies the Darth Maul, Mace Windu and Obi Wan Kenobi ones have proven popular as well. Certainly many people are now purchasing the Darth Maul Star Wars FX Lightsaber as it comes with the double blade as seen in the movie. When this one is delivered to your home it actually needs to be assembled first but this is a very simple task. You just take both of the blades and attach them to the connecter provided.
Whilst the new Obi Wan Kenobi FX Lightsaber is very similar to the ones that we mention previously. However this now comes with five motion sensors for you to control the various sound effects that it has the additional one of it being swing. Also the lighting effects that are realistic to those you will see in the movies are caused by a set of 64 super bright LEDs which are strung together and that light up in order within the blade.
