“LaserSabres!”

Posted on 5th May 2012 by Star Wars Lightsabers in Star Wars Lightsabers - Tags: , , ,

As a lightsaber afficionado, I’ve often touted the cool lasers provided by Wicked Lasers. I mean, until lightsabers are a physical possibility, really cool lasers and light-based toys are about as close we can come.

Well, Wicked Lasers has done it again. They’ve added a neat attachment to their already awesome high-powered laser products to make it look a lot like a Star Wars Lightsaber.

Granted, they’re on the pricey side, but, hey, now you can kill two birds with one stone: you can have an awesome, powerful laser, AND you can have a lightsaber-like blade.

Check them out here:

Here’s their really cheesy video:

’3 Minutes’ of Star Wars Lightsaber fun

Posted on 15th January 2011 by Star Wars Lightsabers in Star Wars Lightsabers - Tags: , , , ,

Ok, so it’s really only about one minute of lightsaber battle. BUT, it stars our favorite dancer, Mike, from Glee (Harry Shum, Jr.), and is a fun little exciting short.

It gets a little graphic near the end. Watch out, if you’re not entirely comfortable with what Star Wars Lightsabers can do to a human body.

Enjoy!

Star Wars Lightsaber Laser Pointer

Posted on 9th July 2010 by Star Wars Lightsabers in Star Wars Lightsabers - Tags: , , , ,

As if I didn’t already love Thinkgeek for their great prices and selections on Force FX Lightsabers, I now love them even more for their awesome laser pointers.

They’ve had the standard laser pointers for a while, seeing as how geeks love lasery thingies. But, the plain jane red laser pointer has been around for so long, and is so cheap, that it’s really passe.

That is, until you make it look like a Star Wars Lightsaber!

Star Wars Lightsaber Laser Pointer

Leave it to Thinkgeek to style a cool toy into a Star Wars geek’s dream!

For only $15, this is an awesome little gift for the one, or many, Star Wars Lightsaber fan(s) in your life. Check it out at Thinkgeek!

Enjoy!

Nathan Fillion’s Star Wars Lightsaber story

I’ve always loved Nathan Fillion.  From Firefly, to Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-Long Blog, to Castle.  He seems like such a fun and likable guy.

Now that I know he’s a fan of Star Wars Lightsabers, I’m even a bigger fan.

In this interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Nathan Fillion talks about geeky guys trying to be cool, and his experience playing with his very own Force FX Star Wars Lightsaber.   He’s funny, as always, and makes me thing that if a geek like him who owns lightsabers can be rich and famous, then there’s hope for me! =)

Enjoy!

Can a Star Wars Lightsaber cut through Superman?

Posted on 28th October 2009 by Star Wars Lightsabers in Star Wars Lightsabers - Tags: , , , , ,

 

Considering I love both Star Wars Lightsabers and Superman, I thought this was a fun and interesting debatable question.

And, I see the debate has happened many times before.

Lightsaber Versus Superman

I found this funny Yahoo Fail article from
http://www.yahooanswerfail.com/geek-fail/.

Star Wars Lightsaber and Superman

And, even more on the subject can be found in the debate at Gizmodo:

http://www.gizmodo.com.au/2008/02/can_a_lightsaber_cut_through_superman-2/

I’d have to agree with the idea that if the focusing crystal of the lightsaber were made of Kryptonite (assuming Kryptonite had the requisite qualities to be able to be used as a focusing crystal), then

a). the lightsaber blade would be green.
b). Superman would be screwed.

What do you think?
