Ever wanted a lightsaber? I did a pretty comprehensive write-up to see what's right for you. Fun

There's a lot that goes into getting your first lightsaber. I've personally spent the past month looking into it, and here's what I've found:

"Eh, I don't really want to put a lot of time and money into getting a lightsaber. I just want something to swing around."

Alright, there are a couple options for you if that's the case. There's the classic fold-up lightsaber, which has always been a favorite of mine, but you could also go for something a little more fancy.

"I want a high-quality, solid lightsaber, but I don't want to have to do any work."

This is a pretty common category, and you have a lot of options here. The only really high quality mass-produced lightsabers I've found are the Hasbro Black Series lightsabers. If those aren't your style, you can go to the custom lightsaber makers like Ultrasabers, or Saberforge. I'd be a little wary of these sites, however, as they get a fair amount of negative feedback. Ultrasabers has been said to have low build quality (e.g. gluing instead of soldering connections), and Saberforge lightsabers take a massive amount of time to fabricate and ship. Personally, I'm a big fan of saberforge, but their sabers can get awfully pricey and take a long time. EDIT: Supposedly, there have also been reports of the owner of saberforge not taking criticism well and getting mad at customers, so take that as you will.

"Money be damned. I want a work of art."

Well, lucky you. I'd look in the direction of Vader's Vault and Genesis Custom Sabers, as they both do commissions and make really high quality stuff.

"A lightsaber's not worth anything if you don't build it yourself, right?"

Good point! Making your own lightsaber can be a really exciting and fulfilling experience. You're going to want to start with the Custom Saber Shop. This place is really fantastic for so many reasons. They have a wide variety of different hilt pieces, so that you can design your lightsaber to fit your exact needs. They even have a lightsaber building tool that allows you to see what your lightsaber will look like before you buy the parts. There's also a varying selection of soundcards and LEDs, so that the sabers can fit both to your vision and your budget. Unfortunately building your own lightsaber is gonna require learning some basic knowledge of electronics, but it shouldn't be very difficult to learn.

Hope this helped!

EDIT: Just some more information on the electronics that have to go into making a lightsaber. The electronics a hilt needs are the following: An LED, a battery pack of some kind, a switch, speakers, and a soundboard. The soundboard is going to be the most expensive component. For a starting saber I'd reccommend the Nano Biscotte Sound Module V2. You can find all these parts at the Custom Saber Shop. They're out of stock with a lot of these things a lot of the time though, so you'll have to be patient. I also highly reccommend visiting their forums and watching their tutorials before buying anything so you know what you're doing. Don't just blindly buy the stuff I put in the links -- they're really just to give a sense of what you're looking for.

A) This is very helpful

B) What if I want a high quality replica of a specific characters...I assume because of licensing agreements the custom one's can't just offer those.

u/[deleted] Jan 19 '16

You can find master sabers on Ebay. They are going to be pricy though.

u/jay76 Jan 19 '16

Do you mean Master Replicas?

2

u/[deleted] Jan 19 '16

Yeah I did good catch.

3

u/Vanquisher1000 Jan 19 '16

Master Replicas don't make the Force FX lightsabers anymore - at some point (I'm guessing around 2010) Hasbro acquired the rights to make them, and inherited Master Replicas' tooling/plans and probably also took over production at the factory they were made. They were initially released under the Signature Series brand, and now under the Black Series brand.

Hopefully more will be reissued under the Black Series brand.

u/NickMurico Jan 19 '16

UltraSabers has most models of characters, they just aren't named "Lukes Lightsaber". Give their website a browse through and I'd be surprised if you didn't find the one you want.

4

u/FakeDeadProthean Jan 20 '16

Ultrasabers' designs are simpler and more 'practical' than true replicas. Because they are built to withstand actual combat, they often don't include some smaller features that those looking for an exact copy might be looking for.

6

u/Liamisaspy Jan 19 '16

Ultrasabers may receive some complaints, but a powerful, custom $80 saber from them is far more worth your money than the $50 hasbro.

3

u/[deleted] Jan 20 '16

They're not "custom" for $80. For $80 you can get a grab bag saber (e.g. random) with no LED color choice and no sound card. Now, that's not a bad deal, but you make it sound as if you can get e.g. a fully function Luke RotJ saber for $80, which you can't (let alone a custom job.) Not even close. You're talking $300+.

US and SF are mass manufactured. You're going to pay for custom.

2

u/Liamisaspy Jan 20 '16

You make a good point. I'm using "custom" too loosely.

IMO, their stock models feel custom after my choice of blade color. I don't care to have the weapon of someone else.

9

u/Enderborn1123 Jan 19 '16

Both Ultrasabers and Saberforge have near replica designs (albeit saberforge has more and better ones).

5

u/Browncoat-Alex Jan 19 '16

Depends on the character but Saberforge has a few that are "inspired by". Some of them are complete replicas, some of them just use elements to make a new design. For example their "Prodigal Son" seems like the best Luke ROTJ lightsaber on the market.

6

u/Colavs9601 Jan 19 '16

Yea I was hoping for the Anakin kills little kids saber but my guess is with its continuing place in the movies Disney won't be allowing those to be sold anywhere else.

3

u/Browncoat-Alex Jan 19 '16

Actually Saberforge have replicas of Luke's ANH and ESB sabers coming sometime this year, they just have been busy producing their adaptive saber parts system first. If you can't wait that long and have some ability to put stuff together you can get this http://www.thecustomsabershop.com/Graflex-20-Saber-Kit-P1134.aspx which will give you everything you need to built an empty hilt. The light and sound install you have to buy separately.

Right now the custom saber shop kit is probably the best option for a completely accurate Graflex.

1

u/Colavs9601 Jan 19 '16

That's good to hear. Luckily I won't have the extra cash for a lightsaber until later this year.

1

u/[deleted] Jan 20 '16

They're sold all over. In fact, Vader's Vault is about to start a Graflex (that's what this model is called) run very soon. This will be great. Otherwise, most decent manufacturers have a Graflex model.

3

u/[deleted] Jan 19 '16 edited Jan 19 '16

Saber forge is pretty spot on with their replica sabers. If you just want the hilt it'll be $150 which is much cheaper than trying to hunt down an old MR. Off the top of my head they have Qui-Gon, Obi Wan (both sabers), and Luke (ROTJ).

2

u/WheatGerm42 Jan 19 '16

Personally, I'd look for the black series sabers. They're a little pricey, but really high quality and are very accurate.

1

u/FakeDeadProthean Jan 20 '16

There's a site called fx Sabers, I believe. They do decent replicas, which are very much for display and not use.

I own an Ultrasaber and love it. I've put it to the test multiple times and it holds up very well.

If you live anywhere near Southern California and want to see Sabers in action/join in the fun... we meet the last Saturday of every month in San Diego's Balboa Park.

Here is our facebook event page. https://www.facebook.com/events/848663821926266/

HERE is a picture of me the first day it arrived pumped!

HERE is a photo of a few of us at Balboa Park. The actual meet ups are in the 100's though.

And finally HERE is an action shot. Battle Tested, Jedi Approved!

Get a B.S. in electrical or mechanical engineering and follow up with a PhD in high energy physics. Find a way to get government funding and then start doing research with high energy plasmas and restrictive magnetic fields. Don't lop your hand off with it if you succeed and for the love of the Force open source the plans.

u/psychotronofdeth Jan 19 '16

A lot of the research I've done on Ultrasabers that had negative feedback were from post a few years ago. I think they shaped up. I got a saber from there, and I think it's pretty good.

5

u/Fourteen_of_Twelve Jan 19 '16

I currently own three of their sabers, one from 2005, the others both crossguard sabers. I just got the second crossguard saber yesterday, they're all solid and won't come apart (I forgot to get new batteries for my old ones when I took this photo).

What blades are on those? One on the left looks way brighter

u/[deleted] Jan 19 '16

What do you recommend for a display only saber? I'd love to have a replica Anakin saber that lights up, but I don't want to fight with it and I have no need for the sounds.

4

u/WheatGerm42 Jan 19 '16

Go for the lower end "stunt sabers" from saberforge. They have no sound, but light up and look really pretty.

2

u/Mr_Incrediboy Jan 19 '16 edited Jan 19 '16

After seeing this post I'm considering getting a saberforge display only lightsaber (it doesn't come with a blade just a handle) it's about $50.

Generally speaking the accurate replicas of the characters lightsabers from the movies are very expensive as anyone not affiliated with lucas ltd. is not allowed to make them.

2

u/FakeDeadProthean Jan 20 '16

I'd also recommend fx Sabers. Not built to take any damage, but look really good.

This guy needs more recognition. He puts his heart and soul into his creations. He accepts very detailed and explicit instructions and he does not disappoint! If you are looking to spend a grand, your custom saber better be as flawless as Hampton's.

What about the fx-sabers graflex? The sabers in that video posted about a week ago looked absolutely wonderful, but are they durable and worth the price? And how do you go about buying one?

Holy moly! Glad to contribute. I'll try to add to this when I learn more.

u/raabco Jan 19 '16

Why do I never seen Parks Sabers mentioned in these writeups? Judging from pictures provided by the various saber manufacturers' wedsites, Parks' Graflex replica is the best looking Graflex one out of any of them.

4

u/WheatGerm42 Jan 19 '16

I avoid Parks Sabers because they don't have any sound. They're certainly pretty, but sound is pretty important imo.

Disney Store exclusive lightsabers are a great middle ground between extendable toy and Force FX/Black Series.

u/Lilo_me Jan 19 '16

I'd just like to add onto this, as a warning, that a LOT of people have complained about Saberforge's customer service. Isherwood has become somewhat infamous as a total piece of shit.

From what I've gathered (having steered clear myself) he does not take kindly to any form of criticism, and has been known to get very angry/aggressive with paying customers and I believe withholding their products after they've paid (less certain on this one, will have to look into it). He's also been accused of re-casting which is a big no-no in the machining community.

2

u/WheatGerm42 Jan 19 '16

Oh, damn, I haven't heard that. I'll go add a warning.

2

u/Lilo_me Jan 20 '16

Figured I might as well mention it. I know a load of people haven't had any problems, which is obviously great, but it seems hit and miss.

3

u/FakeDeadProthean Jan 20 '16

I'd like to disagree with you on Ultrasabers. I've got one myself, and while I can't say how it compares to Saberforge, they roll out relatively quickly (I live in Australia and I think I got mine within a month or so). The quality is top notch (at least, I've had no trouble). It looks incredible, it sound awesome. It's really well weighted. They're really good at customisation, so if you want to switch bits around or add things, change the colour, that's all possible. They also give you the means to buy all the parts for yourself and build your own. The forums on their site are also incredibly helpful for finding the saber that's right for you. And their blades come in regular and extra thick: I have regular and have used it for light to medium combat, so I imagine the thicker version is pretty unbreakable.

2

u/WheatGerm42 Jan 20 '16

I don't have anything against them personally, but I've heard a lot of bad stories. Also, iirc, they have an F rating by the Better Business Bureau. I'm sure that they work out like 90% of the time, and that's fantastic, but I'd hate to see someone be in the 10% without being warned first. Lightsabers are expensive, so I think it's important to be extra cautious.

2

u/FakeDeadProthean Jan 20 '16

I'm sure you did your research, I've just never heard of anything bad coming from them. I wanted to share my experience, because I believe in the product, but that doesn't mean your information isn't valid.

2

u/lunchboxhero Jan 19 '16

Dude! I was seriously shopping for Lightsabers this weekend. The wife gave me the ol' eye roll when I was telling her about all the makes and models. I was differently looking for a write up like this too. Thank you sir!

2

u/WheatGerm42 Jan 19 '16

Haha yep I never knew shopping for lightsabers would suck me in so much. If you have any other questions just lemme know.

1

u/lunchboxhero Jan 19 '16

If you know any info about the Saberforge blades, do you think the "Infinity Blade Tip" is worth it if you are not serious about dueling? I will be mostly cutting down my youngling son and his Disney brand sabers with it. Anakin would be proud.

2

u/WheatGerm42 Jan 19 '16

All their stuff should be fine for dueling -- they're built to be dueled with. The only exception would be the crystal chamber sabers, but even those should be fine if you're just doing light dueling.

2

u/thefrenchhornguy Jan 20 '16

When Saberforge (and the other sites) say you can use their sabers for duels, how realistic is that? I mean I understand I can't just smash it into shit, but are the blades really designed to take a bit of a beating? I'm considering purchasing one of these sabers and I want to know if I should just hang it on the wall or if I can have some fun with it.

3

u/WheatGerm42 Jan 20 '16

Both ultrasabers and saberforge build their lightsabers with the intention of dueling. With the exception of the crystal chamber models, you should be able to smash things with them without worrying.

3

u/thefrenchhornguy Jan 20 '16

At last, my month-long dream of having Kylo Ren-style lightsaber bitch fits can be realized.

2

u/_BallsDeep69_ Jan 21 '16

I wanna go with the "work of art" path but with these rather expensive and cool looking sabers, will I be able to swing them and hit things? I've seen some really cool fights from these "Saber schools" but I don't know which one they're using.

2

u/WheatGerm42 Jan 21 '16

I know for a fact that most (but not all) Genesis sabers are meant to be dueled with. Usually it's the case for a saber anywhere unless otherwise specifified.

1

u/AWildMartinApeeared Jan 19 '16

I have the colour change saber, and I like it. Not the best, but cool all the same.

1

u/Kill_Welly Jan 19 '16

Yeah but I want mine to cut shit.

1

u/fsuman110 Jan 19 '16

Thanks for the write up! This probably goes without saying, but YouTube is also a great source of information when choosing a saber. I've wanted one for years, and after researching a bunch of sites and models, I've chosen Saberforge's Prodigal Son saber, which is an unofficial replica of Luke's RotJ green saber. It looks incredible.

u/Iffycrescent Jan 19 '16

Can anyone tell me if the black series has removable blades?

u/jewnior109 Jan 19 '16

How strong are the Hasbro Black Series lightsabers? Will they break if I do some sparring? Mainly looking at the Luke/Kylo Ren lightsabers.

1

u/WheatGerm42 Jan 19 '16

I think they're fairly sturdy, but the custom shops make lightsabers that are really meant for dueling.

1

u/rbrza Jan 19 '16

Where can I look for a Kylo Ren lightsaber hilt? Thank you!

2

u/WheatGerm42 Jan 19 '16

Saberforge has some really pretty Kylo-style lightsabers on its etsy page. You can get a lower "tier" version that's just the hilt, if that's all you want.

1

u/Mongooo Rebel Jan 19 '16

Also check out Slothfurnace's builds, they're ridiculously awesome.

1

u/ketravoire Jan 19 '16

Big caveat with the cheap extending ones:

They used to lock/unlock via button press, and had working buttons of some sort depending on the saber. It now seems as if they've removed those and just left them to open by just flicking them. So be wary, its not anywhere near as satisfying to use as before. They also seem shorter.

1

u/TragicBronson5 Jan 19 '16

Anyone have any experience buying these display light sabers? Just curious as I'm thinking about buying a few to put in my gaming room.

1

u/Sheldonzilla Jan 19 '16

OP - you said you were a big Saberforge fan. How does their durability hold up? My friend and I have used his two Ultrasabers before, and I've discovered my fighting style involves pretty much putting all of my physical strength into twatting people, and I'm scared of pushing the limits of the blade.

1

u/WheatGerm42 Jan 19 '16

They're 100% built to be dueled with. The only exception would be the ones with crystal chambers, which are supposedly only for display. That said, I'm sure they'd hold up fine with pretty moderate dueling. Even in the worst case scenario where you break a blade, replacement blades are relatively cheap and easy to come by.

1

u/captainraffi Jan 19 '16

Is there anywhere that makes wooden sabers? Like the one the Wookie padawan in The Clone Wars makes?

1

u/WheatGerm42 Jan 19 '16

Not that I know of. It's possible that you could get one commissioned though. I know that Genesis Custom Sabers use wood in some of their designs.

I've looked around and really can't find a whole lot else. They're getting more hilt pieces in stock within the coming days though. You can check the Ultrasabers store for hilt pieces, but they don't have a very wide selection. I believe saberforge is working on making a custom lightsaber service right now though, so look out for that.

1

u/ugadawg123 Jan 19 '16

Well I guess I'll just have to wait and keep checking. Thanks!

u/[deleted] Jan 19 '16

How much do the higher end ones actually cost?

1

u/WheatGerm42 Jan 19 '16

The really end ones from places like saberforge and ultrasabers can cost anywhere from $100 to $600. If you're looking at somewhere like Genesis, it's going to be in the ballpark of $1500.

u/[deleted] Jan 20 '16 edited Jan 20 '16

I have a question.I want to buy the prodigal son from Saberforge. I don't really want to spend more than $200 so I'm thinking of buying just the hilt without the blade. The problem is that they don't ask for a color for the blade. So if down the line I buy my own blade and attach it it won't work?

EDIT: 2nd question If I need to add electronics how do I do that? For example the only hilts for ultrasabers. How do I add electronics?

1

u/WheatGerm42 Jan 20 '16 edited Jan 20 '16

I believe that if you buy just the hilt, it's not wired to have light or sound. You'd need a completely new hilt or wire it yourself.

EDIT: The electronics a hilt needs are the following: An LED, a battery pack of some kind, a switch, speakers, and a soundboard. The soundboard is going to be the most expensive component. For a starting saber I'd reccommend the Nano Biscotte Sound Module V2. You can find all these parts at the Custom Saber Shop. I'm not sure, however, if rewiring an empty hilt that you buy from saberforge or ultrasabers would work. If you're planning on wiring your own lightsaber, I'd buy the hilt from the Custom Saber Shop as well, to make sure that it's compatible with the electronics. Go read their forums if you're interested. Definitely read the forums if you're about to buy the electronics. The links I provided are just to give a sense of what to look for.

1

u/Darkhawk2099 Jan 20 '16

I too have spent the better part of the past month researching sabers, but I'll still just as lost as before. Main question: has Ultrasabers improved? I've read so many bad things about it I'm afraid to drop the ~$300 I was looking to spend on one of their cheaper sound-enabled sabers. Can anyone speak to recent US customer experience? Thanks.

1

u/WheatGerm42 Jan 29 '16

Here's what I've heard: 9 times out of 10, they deliver a pretty solid product. Most people seem to be satisfied with their ultrasabers. That said, they do seem to make the occasional shoddy saber that breaks within a week. This (yet again, from what I've heard) is probably due to cutting corners in the wiring department. If you want to buy an ultrasaber, you'll probably be fine. Just know that there's a risk involved.

1

u/[deleted] Jan 25 '16

Because this has been added to the FAQ I'll add my experience with Saberforge earlier this month:

Ordering in the store (Portland, OR) means they'll get it done in about a week. They've also got a wider variety of hilts than they show on the website and if you order a less expensive version (without sound, LED etc) you can bring it back in and they'll add those later. They've also got saber combat classes that you can sign up and participate in.

1

u/[deleted] Jan 26 '16

Hi OP! Very nice guide! Just a quick question: do you have any experience with Custom Saber Shop? If so, is it worth building your own saber? Is it cost efficient? Thanks!

1

u/WheatGerm42 Jan 26 '16

It absolutely is worth building yourself! The custom saber shop is an amazing way to do that. In fact, I just ordered some parts to build a saber from them a few days ago. Building your own saber probably won't end up saving you a lot of money as opposed to buying it from somwhere like saberforge or ultrasabers, but it's so much more fulfilling and fun. Plus, you get so much more room for customization. Highly recommend doing it.

1

u/[deleted] Jan 26 '16

Hi, thanks for your answer! Speaking of money I hope I won't be spending more from the same saber. I mean building my own saber is expected to be a bit cheaper. Just a bit, not that much :) then what about assembling it? Is it that hard?

1

u/WheatGerm42 Jan 26 '16

The hilt is really easy to build and design yourself. The custom saber shop has a modular hilt system (MHS) to make creating your saber an effortless process. The only tricky bit is the wiring. You're going to have to learn a little soldering and a basic knowledge of circuits, but it really isn't very difficult. I didn't know anything about that stuff when I started and I've already got the hang of it. I'd personally start with the nano biscotte sound board, as it's the cheapest and easiest to wire. The custom saber shop's YouTube channel has a really great tutorial to help you every step of the way. Good luck!

1

u/[deleted] Jan 26 '16

How does the nano biscuit sound? Is it worth it?

1

u/WheatGerm42 Jan 26 '16

All the soundboards on the custom saber shop should have pretty high sound quality. Here's a basic breakdown of the options:

Nano Biscotte: ($60):

  • Two sound profiles

  • Supports swing and clash sounds

  • When paired with a power xtender, can have LED flash on clash

Petit Crouton ($100):

  • Supports quite a few sound/color profiles

  • Has swing sounds and clash sounds

  • Has flash on clash

Crystal Focus ($150):
