Post Color of Kyle's Lightsaber

Sorry if there is another thread about this topic, but I tried searching for it and nothing came up, so I'm posting. Anyway, I'm kind of disappointed that Kyle's saber is currently blue. I know, it may change before the final release, but I'm tired of these "traditional" saber colors. All we've seen in the movies is red, green, and blue for saber colors. I was hoping that Kyle would retain Yun's yellow saber because it was interesting to have a different colored saber for a change.

Oh, and this is kind of off topic, but I just thought about it. I was looking at the latest screenshots again, and did anyone else notice that the hilt of Kyle's saber was kinda long. I thought saber hilts were no more then a foot in length, but Kyle's looks to be at least 14 inches. Any thoughts on this?

Well this lightsaber is either one of the low power ones for training or it is a new one he has made. Remember a Jedi Knight has to make his own lightsaber as part of his training, so Yuns wouldnt be appropriate.

Also lightsabers can be as long or as short as the user wants it to be. Maybe Kyles is an adjustable one which would be real cool

Well, if it's directly proportional to their saber length, how do you explain Darth Maul?

Hey, I like the bule saber coler. I agree that it should be a different colour, maybe white though.

I hope (assuming you receive the lightsaber like in JK) that on that same 'level' you can somehow change the lightsabers colour to suit your liking.
For example by being able to change the crystals or something like that.
And once you've done so and you go into the next area the change(s) will become permanent or something like that.

(t'was just an idea )

Personally I like the blue saber. However, in multiplayer/skirmish mode you should be able to choose the colour of your lightsaber, perhaps even designate a custom colour.
P.S. It would be kinda scary to be confronted by three Jedis wielding pink sabers.


Back on the quest for the perfect sig!

Saint's idea is very good. Just imagine each owner of the game would have a kyle to his/her liking.

Delete HOW?????????????????

Well, to tell you the truth, dark blue (like Saris's lightsaber in the cutscenes) is my favorite saber color, so I'm actually pretty pleased by the screenshots, but I'd be ever happier if different colored sabers were represented in the game in some fashion.

You....you like my idea...*sniff*...well gosh fellows...i...i dont know what to say.

But on a more serious note it really was a good idea wasnt it...i hope you Raven people are paying attention.

Oh and another great idea is maybe for you Raven people to add a secret in the form of a "Darth Maul lightsaber" if you know what i mean. (side-note: and to actually make working animations with that you know so that the other blade doesnt 'stick' through your leg, well anyways could be mucho coolio)

I reckon at the beginning should be a training level in which you have to construct your saber. I think you should be able to choose the colour at this point. Id be happy with blue though.

I agree about constructing your own sabers. This could be added to the topic of training levels on Yavin 4. You find certain crystals that create your own colour.
You could even blend!

what? select not from 8 preset colours or so, but from an entire 32 bit pallette? (16 bit for those unfortunate souls )

thatd be tuff!

i'd go a lime green saber...... mmmm

Well it wouldnt have to get THAT extreme, but to be able to give your lightsaber the colour you like even if that means chosing a colour from a pre-determent batch of colours would still mean that you can have a personal touch to the game.....and possibly take 'it' with you into MP.(<--it just hit me )
It cant be too difficult to make it so....right??

I dont think it would be too difficult...hasnt something like this been tried before somewhere (obviusly not a lightsabre, but a starting gun or something)??

And another thing...you all keep mentioning a black lightsaber. That isnt possibe...a black crystal would block out the light, and so it wouldnt happen.....unless someones got information on this from one of the books or the main star wars site.

The crystal idea is great. But won't that be funny, different kyle's with different colour blades. LEC would, though have an offical blade colour for sure.

I heard somewhere that Lucas is now enforcing the color choices for sabers... Red is always dark-side, and green and blue is always light-side. I think George had a dream about it or something. :-)

An invisible saber would be cool but unfair... For instance, it becomes surprisingly hard to play if you change your saber blade 3do in JK to a mousebot...

Thats been thrown out the window due tot he fact that Lucas let Sam Jackson have a purple saber, per his request.

Actually, i always associated red with dark jedi and sith, and blue and purple with Jedi Knights.

My favourite colour is purple...what are your favourite colours??

I think it would be interesting to see the color assosiations everyone has. This is what I think:

Blue, Green, and White (although this kind of negates having a color at all) = Jedi
Red = Sith
Puruple, Yellow, and Orange = either.

Edit: Misspelled a word.

What's this talk about GLucas colour coding jedi (I don't like saying this) but is he nuts! What, are there only three crystal colours in the SWuniverse?

I dunno, it's his world, he can do what he wants. Maybe the Sith ritual for creating a lightsaber is different than the Jedi ritual...

Hey,

I'd love to pick my colour of sabre,but like one of you guys was saying that blue and green were light colours and red was dark, i'd just like to say Boc had blue sabres and Yun had yellow, also Mara Jade had a Blue one in heir to the empire ( well the fig anyway )
And like in mauls sabre could you get 2 colours in that d'yo thinks,

Thanks

Scott

Man, I like that color. It reflects the old movies and I think Raven is just trying to add some variety to the game, instead of the the hero weilding the same green lightsaber over and over again.

A construction orange, silver, or gold color would be cool (for MP or whatever). I also can't believe we haven't seen a white saber yet either. It'd also be interesting to see how they'd pull off a black one, or maybe even a glass looking one.
