I obviously had to mention these sweet little beauties in a series of Geek Gift Ideas posts; the Star Wars Force FX Lightsabers. These are official reproductions of the lightsabers used in George Lucas’s Star Wars film series. Featuring realistic lighting and sound effects, these close combat weapons of the Jedi and Sith are absolutely amazing, features include:
- Glowing blades ignites with realistic power-up/down effects!
- Authentic sound effects digitally recorded from the movie.
- Features four motion sensor controlled sound effects, Power-up, idle hum, clash, and power-down
- Durable metal hilt looks and feels like a real lightsaber.
- Sturdy blade is permanently attached to the hilt
- Comes with a custom-designed display stand when you need a break from dueling.
They are currently offering (as of the time of this writing) four models.
- Darth Vader (Episode IV) – $119.99 US
- Mace Windu (Episode II) – $119.99 US
- Yoda (Episode II and III) – $119.99 US
