Star Wars Force FX Lightsaber

Darth Vader Red

'Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side.' Maybe, but Han Solo came out with that little gem before he'd witnessed the awesomely artistic power of a lightsaber. (All right, so he saw Obi-Wan slicing off that ugly 'I don't like you!' bloke's arm in the Mos Eisley Cantina, but that little altercation was over in a flash).

Star Wars Force FX Lightsaber

Feel the power of the force

The point being, the lightsaber is, without doubt, the greatest pretend weapon in the entire sci-fi universe. These iconic red-hot rapiers are to weaponry what Darth Vader is to villainy. And there isn't a Star Wars fan alive who hasn't fantasised about wielding one in all its glowing, pshwooing, vhzzhhing, wuhmming glory. And now, thanks to your Jedi-loving friends here on Fireboxooine, you can get your mitts around the most jaw-droppingly realistic replica in the galaxy.

Star Wars Force FX Lightsaber

Luke Skywalker Blue

The gorgeously crafted Force FX Lightsaber really is an elegant weapon for a more civilized age. Not as clumsy or as random as a blaster, this makes other imitation lightsabers look like, er, imitations. Fully licensed by Lucasfilm, the limited edition Force FX is fashioned in gleaming metal with a durable polycarbonate blade, and it feels like a real lightsaber the par-sec you pick it up.

But here comes the good bit: once activated, the blade glows brightly and the Force FX reverberates with digitally recorded sound effects taken directly from the film, including power-up, idle-hum, swing, clash and power-down. The spine-tingling sounds are activated via five super-sensitive motion sensors, three of which are in the blade to detect movement and impact.

Force FX Lightsaber Collectible

The eye-popping light effects are produced by a string of 64 super-bright LEDs that ignite sequentially inside the permanently attached blade. The Force FX even comes with a handsome stand for tabletop or wall display. If this doesn't excite your inner Jedi, nothing will!

(Firebox apologises for the proliferation of Star Wars quotes in the above text, but the Force FX Lightsaber is guaranteed to bring out the Jedi in anyone).

Frequently asked questions:

Star Wars logo Q: Is the Force FX lightsaber a licensed collectible?

A: Absolutely. The Force FX lightsaber is indeed a licensed collectible approved and endorsed by Lucasfilm Ltd. As a collectible, the Force FX lightsaber is not a toy and it is not suitable for children under 12 years of age. Adult supervision is recommended.

Q: Is the Force FX lightsaber a limited edition prop replica?

A: No. Although the design of the Force FX lightsaber is faithful to the look of the movie prop, it is not an exact replica. The hilt of the lightsaber was made slightly larger than the actual movie prop in order to accommodate the electronics that control the light and sound effects. The Force FX lightsaber collectibles are not limited to a pre-determined edition size. Therefore, they are not classified as limited edition replicas.

Q: What is the blade on the Force FX lightsaber made of?

A: The Force FX lightsaber features a permanently attached polycarbonate blade. Once activated, the blade glows brightly, and the replica plays back digitally recorded sound effects taken directly from the film.

Q: Is the blade on the Force FX lightsaber removable?

A: No, the blade is not removable or retractable. There are a number of wires and electronics systems in the blade that would not be as durable or reliable if we made the blade removable.

Q: How do the light and sound effects work in the Force FX lightsaber?

A: The Force FX lightsaber incorporates three motion sensors which sense both the motion of the blade as well as when it comes in contact with something. An on-board, multi-channel chip is programmed with digital sound-effects originally created for the movie by Skywalker Sound. The Force FX lightsaber replicates the following sound effects:
  • Power-up
  • Idle hum
  • Swing (with pitch change)
  • Clash
  • Power-down

Q: How long will the light in the Force FX lightsaber last?

A: It should run for several hours on a fresh set of batteries. The electronics, if cared for properly, should last for several thousand hours of use. Replace the batteries whenever the performance begins to change, such as reduced brightness or volume.

Q: Can I use my Force FX lightsaber for dueling?

A: This product should not be used to strike others. Although the blade is very durable, it should never be used for fighting or dueling. The Force FX lightsaber was produced by Master Replicas as a collectible.
