Sabers

I was browsing another forum(Penny Arcade forum I think) when I found this Link and thought some of you guys would get a kick out of it. I can personally attest for these things(Received one from a relative for one holiday or another). They are damn near indestructable. When told how durable the company said it was, I actively tried to break it, and the damn thing is still tickin'.

By the way, the pictures of them do not do them justice, they're absolutely beautiful.

by relatively indestructible..do you mean I could buy two, give one to someone, and then attack them with it without breaking it?

Or do you mean the handle is nearly indestructable?

just curious you know.. I want one so badly.

I loved the "not associated with Lucas Films, all are original designs" and half of them look like direct rips from the film. Don't remember the name but they had Luke's saber in there, also had one that kinda looked like Kyles.

They are designed for you to "Duel" with them - both the "blade" and the hilt can and will take alot of sh*t.

I hang mine over my bed for a nice reading light sometimes. Green is the brightest.

This is the one I got(but mines green)

hey, cool sabers - they should do something like "Force not included" =)

Oh and question:

Do all the sabers HAVE to have those red "cap" thingies on the ends? That makes them look silly =P

EDIT: HOLY COW - $265.00!! for one saber!

That would suck if it broke while you were dueling a friend... maybe they have a warranty for (month-year) so you can return it and they will fix/give you a new one. =]

One more question (would be too nervous buying one to try breaking it without someone else also having done it..of course, if I destroyed it I could sue for false advertising and get a new one )

Anyhow, just how hard did you try to break it? Did you go at it with a hammer? Or just slam it as hard as you could against the floor? Or did you go full jedi and block bullets with it?

[Remember, these are made by hand.]
That should answer most of the questions, I found it on their "High Tech Features Page". As for how hard I've tried, I've slammed it on corners of a building(Civic Center) made of concrete, hit it with all sorts of tools, and what not, all with all my strength(I'm a rather strong fellow) and the fking thing is still going. I think I'd have to run it over with a steam roller to break it.

And yeah, it cost alot, but cmon ITS STAR WARS for crying out loud I'm lucky, mine was a gift I'd buy a Darth Maul type saber if the guy was ever to design one.

And about the red tip, yes it comes on all of them, but ya know what, that is way easy to break off(its just plain orange plastic).

No, the blade is hella strong, breaking the orange plastic with puny Pliers is of no concern to the mighty blade. I am pretty sure a bullet will hurt it. Like toy guns, the plastic tips are on there, because the laws say they have to be there.

***Edit Yes, but the scratch is so small, you have to have your face 2 inches from the blade, and actively looking for it to notice.

It's probably there for cosmetic purposes like the orange ring on the barrels of toy guns. basically just screams out to people "I'm not a REAL lightsaber, don't worry, you're safe..unless I hit you really hard and bludgeon you to death..but then I'd get blood on my new pretty saber wouldn't I?" or something like that..possibly with none of the stuff after 'you're safe'

Wow!

Handsome things always cost handsome prices.
This applies too,in this thing.
If I had the money,all seven would have been mine.
I just wonder what makes them so expensive.It's crazy.


When you slice a person, do you slice him with the fastest stroke, or do you forcefully incapacitate him?

And the top isnt there for other reasons?

For instance, maybe the saber is fragile on top ?




ps.

Sorry for all these posts. But I really think of buying one

No, it has no function. It is only there because our laws state that all fake weapons are to have that on the tip, or it is illegal to sell them.

No need to feel sorry, I'm most likely the only one of the bunch of us that has one, and I brought it up to you guys, thus its my duty to answer these questions.

...The orange tip is easily removed, causes no harm to the saber, and causes no harm to the functionality of the saber to do so.

And now, Consolidated Snake is off to Play some JK2 Multiplayer.

And I thught only Lucas could make sabers.

This is some work

6-8 weeks and $300- price tag is a small price to pay to get a saber you can actually duel with...

nice...

Consolidated, nice way to to consolidate your name.

check out http://www.wordsmithdigital.com/saber/ and build your own. Though, without the blade.

There are other sites, this was just th efirst one I found. Go to any search engine and type in 'build a lightsabre' or something like that. I use Web Ferret.

I'm not sure if these sabres are actually going to be that good for actual dueling...

Sound?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

I would need the sound when you activate the saber and the hummmmmmmmm. Even the old plastic toy sabers had the hum when you swung them.

Those are damn cool, with sound they would be complete.

Guys, if you're really looking for some real duelling fun, check out these badarse blades. They (most of them) cost less, and they really do the damage. I know they don't have anything to do with Star Wars, but I'd bet my balls they are much more fun than those little plastic sabers (no offense to the big saber-supporters here).

WOOHOO, I got props twice in 1 thread! Tnx Con. Snake.

I'd like to try and build one of those sabres. The parts seem cheap, I'll probably get them and put it together over the course of a long time. If I ever finish I'll post a picture. Don't hold your breath.
