My friend got a lightsaber for his kid from ultrasabers.com and teased me with a video of it.
Duly intrigued, I ordered the one that looks like Luke's in ROTJ, the Ultrasabers Archon v3.1 lightsaber in the mail.. I got the classic "good" colour, blue, instead of the evil Sith red, with the "flash on clash" option, meaning it will flash silver when clashing. I am adding this prop, to my other movie props.
These lightsaber props use LED lights and great sound to simulate the famous laserswords of Star Wars. They are specifically designed to be used in sparring, that's how tough they are supposed to be. You can see lots of "duels" online on them.
The box was as expected; long and thin.
It came with battery recharger, acrylic stand and a belt clip.
