Until recently Earth-based intergalactic warriors had to do battle with broomsticks whilst making imbecilic whooshing noises. Failing that they bought pricey pretend lightsabers. But not any more because the cape-billowingly cool Special FX Saber
is here and it’s only a tenner. Talk about de Jabba dee wanna wonga!
Despite its bafflingly low price, this rubber-handled 70cm
weapon features all the pshwooing, wuhmming sound effects
you know and love. It even makes that spine-tingling ‘striking’ sound and changes colour
when you wave it at a space monster (played by the cat) or a behelmeted baddie (played by the mother-in-law).
Of course hokey weapons and ancient religions are no match for a good blaster at your side, but try telling that to Darth Firebox (aka the boss) or our young apprentice (aka the work experience bod), both of whom have felt the force thanks to this amusing little sci-fi rapier. Ouch!
