After months of delays, Hasbro have finally managed to produce a new batch of their awesome Force FX Lightsabers.
Out of all the prop replicas, one of the most exciting to own has to be a lightsaber. The Force FX ones do a good job of looking and sounding like their movie counterpart. The bright blades power up, down, hum and react to your movement. They even simulate clashing sounds if you knock them on an object. The part metal hilts are pretty close replicas of the movie originals, however they are slightly wider to accommodate the internal electronics.
Hasbro's first offering is the wave 1 set containing prop replica lightsabers of Luke Skywalker, Yoda and Darth Vader. Quite annoyingly, a retailer such as ourselves has to buy them in a mixed case with one of each of those characters. As Luke's lightsaber is most in demand because it features in the newest movie whereas the other two don't, this makes for quite the supply problem. If you were wise enough to pre-order a Luke Skywalker lightsaber from us, you should now be in possession of said lightsaber. The bad news is that if you didn't pre-order, all our Luke lightsabers are now sold out.
However, it's not all bad news. We still have some Yoda and Darth Vader lightsabers. Both are the new 2015 models featuring improved motion detection, brighter blades and better sound quality than the earlier models.
