Wicked Laser Spyder III is NOT a Star Wars Lightsaber!!

Posted on 12th July 2010 by Star Wars Lightsabers in Star Wars Lightsabers - Tags: , , ,


Wicked Laser’s awesome blue Spyder III laser that I posted just the other day is getting all sorts of media attention now, because, apparently, Lucasfilms has demanded they stop production due to intellectual property reasons.

Personally, I think this is silly. Wicked Lasers never refers to their laser as a lightsaber in any of their media. Sure, it looks vaguely like a lightsaber, but so does every county fair plastic toy for kids. Heck, so does a christmas paper roll, if you’re young and creative enough.

Granted, I’m sure the media has made references to lightsabers. Heck, even I have. Not because I think Wicked is trying to make a lightsaber, but because I happen to think that both lightsabers and lasers are way cool.

Anyway, luckily, Wicked Lasers is refusing, because Lucas has no grounds. But, hopefully, he won’t be able to gain ground, otherwise these awesome blue lasers may not be available for long.

Here’s an awesome video from Youtube showing the Arctic Spyder III laser:
