Thumbs up Real Sabers (Jedi Academy)

All right people, this is JediSith999 from Jedi Academy. And directly and only from Jedi Academy, we found out what you wanted and researched it. Well here it is! We found real sabers which you CAN duel with! Yes, I am buying one of these really soon. Yes you CAN duel with them. They are amazing and awesome. I just couldnt wait to release this information public. Remember, you heard this from the Jedi Academy first....... And the site is:
Lightech Indsutries
It is awesome, anyone who is even close to a fan should get one, or two, or even three. Have fun dueling with your friends. And remember, you heard it from the Jedi Academy first.
Also, everything with the Jedi Academy is going smooth, if you didn't know, we did get our own server, and were doin really good. Expect us in a week or two.

Looks like the blades bend a bit in the first video.... regardless those are some crappy promo movies, that guy trying to be a "crazy" dark jedi makes me want to puke.

parks?

I know these arn't the same sabers, and honestly these lightech ones hilts do look better, but anyone know if parks and lightech use the same EL blades?

The park ones have a casing around them making them "virtually unbreakable"

Do these?

Still good call Jedi academy these sabers look sweet regardless!!!


We all have to die, the only question is... Do you want it on your feet? or on your knees...

Cool Guy

Sure the dark Jedi play actor is weird but he certainly reminds me of the Reborn =P

All in all I think its the perfect addition to Star Wars junkies. Hey if it gets them out of their rooms and interacting with other people on a physical basis, it can't be THAT bad of a thing, right?

They dont 'bend' in the videos, after reviewing the videos I thought the same thing, but then I relized that it was the effect of the saber being swung rapidly. Such as when you do the pencil trick, you grab it by the eraser and move up up and down, it looks like its a rubber pencil. So now they dont 'bend'. I thought it was cool the guy was trying to act like a dark jedi, and I dont think they use the same blades, because Parks seem much thinner then Lightech Industires. Lightech are way better, im getting them myself. I suggest you get them too.

i've always wanted a lightsaber....but never have i imaged having a hard, solid piece of metal in the centre of the blade. i want a true weapon, the blade being a beam of pure energy with which i can cut thru walls if i so desire

The hilts look great though, i must say.

Great, the more people who get em the better, maybe I will see you one day and duel you.......... maybe...........
Yeah, but my friend bought a parksaber and was very disapointed.. There was no on or off switch, and when i swung it, the blade was flimsy and sometimes popped out. It was really annoying. So I looked for another company that did make cool lightsabers and I stumbled across Lightech Industries. So I guess they will be the new company where I get my lightsabers.

*EDIT*
I NOW STAND CORRECTED. They did have an off/on switch, but after pressing it to many times it did brake

The Maelstrom, then I borrowed my friends rouge, and it broke on us too, so we are going lightech. I suggest a lightech, I havnt tried it but I know that parksabers brake, form previous expierince.

*EDIT*
Grammer mistakes.

If a Park's broke on you, then so will a LithTech under the same conditions - the protective layer is made of the same material. If you don't like something, then say so, no need to make up lies.

Where does he lie?

He said the park saber broke, he's going to try the Lightech.

Nowhere did he say he already tried it, or that it was better...just that he was going to give it a go.

So where's the lie?


I'm not good enough to have a sig-line.

Heres my conclusion:
Parksabers:
The actual design is fancy, looks appealing
have to remove batteries and put them in to turn it on or off
BECAUSE if you hit their switch too many times or too hard, it will brake
The actual hilt does not fit well with the blade, making the blade very flimsy, because the hilt does not tighten it secure enough
Lightech:
I have not tried but I am getting, i have hear aweosme things about them, so I am getting one. Maybe 2

*EDIT*
Fixed a few mistakes, grammer, and punctuation.

Lol, I think I'll stick with the Hasbro-made toy lightsabers! Atleast theyre blades are half-way thick enough! hehe... And because I'm hella-cheap (spent last 50 bucks on JKII!)!

I cant stop laughing...

So you people want swords that look like lightsabres and want to fight with these swords that actually DONT look like light sabres. WHY ARENT YOU FENCING. Fencing may be the most fun (if not physically demanding) sport I have ever been involved with. Not only do you fight with swords, but your reflexes get keen, you get into shape, you get to stab people, and it is VERY strategic. Why arent you people helping me bring my sport back into main stream!? START FENCING PEOPLE! Throwdown your fake lightsabres and grab a foil or Epee (cant spell that word! ARGH!) FIGHT IN THE WAR AGAINST LAZINESS AND FAKE SWORDS!


The light in the window is a crack in the sky; a stairway to darkness in the blink of an eye; a levee of tears to learn she'll never be coming back; the man in the dark will bring another attack....

I am gunna grab some info for anyone here interested (because us fencers always have to convert others to the sport so that it can survive.)

Great fencing equipment
http://www.thefencingpost.com/foil.htm

Here is the official US fencing site
http://www.usfencing.org/

a great recourse for fencers
http://www.fencing.net/

and there are a few more that wont benifit beginers. I highly suggest you all look into fencing if you have any need to fight with swords or have ever desired too. (This includes lightsabres)

well, i have seen both the park sabers and these light tech ones in real life, my friend ordered both
his park saber had an on/off switch and the blade never came out from the hilt, it is also totally strong as we have tried to break them many times and not suceeded, on the other hand his lighttech one is no where near as good, which we expected from the price difference, the blades actually do bend a bit when u make contact and the hilts arent as nice as park

Im going to get a Defender, but now you guys are making me think, you said the Lightech saber blade bends? My friend said "Josh (His friend) has a lightech and it kicks @$$! Its the best saber on the market"
NOTE: I do not actually know them, an aqquantice over the internet I have met.
Well thats what I've heard.

Yeah, but park doesnt have a double bladed lightsaber. Lightech has a double bladed lightsaber, which can disassemble into 2 seperate fully operation lightsabers. How awesome is that?

Well, I can't exactly take fencing (even though I always wanted too...) because... Well, theres no fencing schools or classes or clubs near me that I know of.... And I probably couldn't afford it either... Plus, I want a saber (still a fencing weapon you know) because I can slash them as well! So it would be more like a rapier!

too good to be true? not at all, its even endorsed with a link from the official starwars.com store.


http://www.masterreplicas.com/StarWa...saber.asp?sid=


i dont know if you can battle with it, but you could probably email them to find out (i didnt read the whole page)

That's nothing I e-mailed them and apparently later on in the year they'll be releasing Mace Windu's and Count Dooku's Lightsabers as well.

Post wa-goddamn-hey!

I have just placed my order from Lightec for a Viper Defender, i wasn't sure which blade to go with so i just said to choose one that would suit it

They should make a starwars nightclub somewhere, take your lightecs and park's and have drinks & duel, imagine it now, oooh yes, feel the force flowing through you!

Wahey!

Hopefully my lightec should be here (England) within a week apparently!!! I'm so excited i could pee my pants! lol

hey, you there!

L'Equa Sinar is finally getting a saber, yess, mmmmm!


Away with your weapon! I mean you no harm!
