We’re not certain whether this is how it was done among the Jedi and the Sith, whether they had to go to the trouble of actually constructing their own lightsabers. There’s no overt reference to any kind of lightsaber vendor in any of the six movies. And if there was one, would he supply both the empire and the rebels? Or would there be some sort of contractual stipulation against that? You’re free to ponder these issues as you build your own weapon by choosing a Jedi or Sith blade, a color to appear when it lights up, and a crystal, which, in the mythology of Star Wars, gives the saber its power. The kit comes with one hilt, two blades, two emitters, two caps, and three crystals. You could even take both blades and build a double-bladed saber. There aren’t endless possibilities here, leaving the kit somewhat disappointing as a construction toy but it’s a nice way of customizing your own weapon, depending whether you’re good or evil. --Charlie Williams

O.K., I'll admit George Lucas has pretty much been swayed by the power of the green to the point where he'll stamp the name "Star Wars" on anything that requires a check or money order or major credit card for the masses to sample. But still, every now and then, once in a great while, the licensing lackeys at Lucasfilm manage to greenlight something that IS not only unique, but genuinely fun and would make both an awesome plaything and a pretty cool display piece. In recent years, it's Hasbro that's been responsible for a few of the very best "Star Wars" toys ever made, due largely to the role-playing nature they provide - the Interactive R2-D2 and the Darth Vader Voice Changer.

Still, Artoo came with too hefty a price tag for everyone to get their hands on him, and for all its tricks the Voice Changer still requires one to throw some menace into their own pipes in order for the effect to really work. The third time, however, may at last be the charm.

The Ultimate Lightsaber, as it's dubbed, affords one the opportunity to live out something that only Jedi Knights can do in the fictional "Star Wars" universe: construct their own weapon as a final rite of passage into the Jedi Order. The price tag is more than substantiated by the number of parts available in this kit, few as they are when you consider how many prominent characters in the "Star Wars" saga wield lightsabers (and how many of those same lightsabers have already been produced as role-play toys by Hasbro). The lack of more parts seems to have limited the Hasbro designers to derive most of the components from the same five or six characters, to be sure, but with a little imagination the combinations can still be impressive in appearance.

I bought this a few days after it was released online, here at Amazon, and I was quite pleased.

Pros:

Excellent custom capabilites. If you are a Star Wars encylopedia as I am, you will notice ways to construct sabers with similarites to famous ones, ie, Plo Koon, Luminara, and other more obscure jedi. The red blade is beyond awesome. This is by far the coolest looking saber blade I have seen. The interchangable sounds are great too (try the blue crystal!). And the ability with which to duel is great. I own several other lightsabers, and this one is the most dent and scratch resistant. And that dual-blade feature is nice, if a bit asymmetrical.

Cons:

The clear saber is not as illuminating as I would like. The green filter with mine did not create a green at all but a yellow, which actually is pretty cool if you like the Knights of the Old Republic Game, I actually had to use blue and green to get that richer, luke skywalker green. And it can only be used effectively in a darker room. in the light, it's nearly hopeless. The blue filter is weak, and I was disappointed that you couldn't make purple from red and blue, as the red filter is so dominating in the color department. So, I'd recommend either buying some filters from a print shop, getting a more poweful bulb to install, or just throwing your morals to the wind and becoming a sith.

...It's more fun anyway.

On the whole, this is a great buy for the money, as you will get a LOT of use out of this, especially just building and re building. (Think, "It can still be better") There are a few disappointments, but, for the cost of building a unique lightsaber, it is sufferable.

To sum up, buy it! Buy it now!

(It's great to duel your friends and pull out a custom saber on the fly. Very unnerving.)

My children love lightsabers, so when I saw this I had to grab one.

It's OK. I'm a little downplussed, because it does not live up to the hype on the box as far as customizing and whatnot. This was a problem, since my son's favorite jedi is Mace Windu, and this was a selling point, with the potential for a purple lightsaber. There is NO WAY you can do a Mace Windu lightsaber with the lenses provided however. The red lens is just too powerful, even if you throw all three lenses in.

However, with some scissors, the clear plastic packaging, and some colored sharpies, I made lenses that provide the purple effect.

I wouldn't mind an addon "kit" for this to become available in the future with more parts to customise it, and more filters. I'm sure the whizzes at the toy company can come up with a better purple than I did. Maybe replacement flashlight bulbs which are brighter based on LED tech would be nice. I know they're out there, just they're taking their sweet time getting over here.

In any case, it's a good saber. Tough, nifty, good sounds, and the "lego" aspect of it is wonderful. Warning though, if your kid is like my kid, they will soon discover that by removing any crystal from the chamber, the saber can emit all sounds at whim, making it cooler, and rendering the crystals useless. Hahaha. So if you don't want your little wannabe Jedi to spiral off into anarchy, make sure you stress the importance of keeping that thing in there. (Nah)

The double bladed aspect of this thing is a total letdown due to the fact that only one blade lights up. Sure, that's stupid to nitpick about that, but it's a big deal when you see it in action.
