Any fan of the Star Wars saga knows
that the light saber is a symbol of strength and power. It is the tool
that is wielded in the fiercest and most passionate of battles. The light
saber is real proof that someone has reached prominent status, and is
used to fight in some of the best scenes of the Star
Wars movies. While most of us in the real world will never own an
official light saber, it’s nice to pretend and fantasize about
being a real Jedi.
A typical light saber consists of the handle and blade.
The handle usually has two buttons: one to power up the saber, and one
to control the length of it. It is usually a heavy metal
material that is typically silver in color. The blade emits
a bright, iridescent light that can be a myriad of colors,
depending on which side you are fighting for.
Star Wars has become such an amazingly huge cult hit, that many people
today long to have a light saber of his or her own. Luckily,
many different manufacturers have created this weapon
of choice in a variety of styles. If you’re the staunch collector,
you will probably opt for the replica piece that looks just like the
handle and nothing else. This item is typically placed in a display case
for show only. Others might choose to purchase the light saber with real
light up action and sound. These sabers actually
power up, make realistic noises, and light up in different colors,
depending on which character’s light saber you choose to buy. Then
of course, there are countless Star
Wars light saber toys available for purchase for the smaller Jedi in
your life. No matter which style light saber you choose, you’ll
know that the force is with you when you hold it in your hand.
