Whether your child is a fan of the new Clone Wars animated film or the original trilogy, this light saber, with its light up blade and electronic sounds, is sure to be a hit. Its sturdy plastic components in gray, black, and gold, three colored crystals, and telescoping blade can be combined in over 1000 different ways to create a customized battle weapon. And since part of the fun is in thinking up ways to combine the pieces into a customized weapon, there's no time-consuming adult setup.
You'll need a Philips head screwdriver to insert three AA batteries (not included), and you may want to help young users put the color crystals in the first time around, so they know how to change them later on.
Imaginative Play that Spans Distant Galaxies
One of this light saber's top features is the way it emits different sounds along with a different color light inside the clear plastic blade depending on what Ilum crystal or crystals are inserted in the handle. Choose the classic Jedi green, blue, Sith red, or combine crystals to achieve an effect like the violet light saber Mace Windu uses. Star Wars fans will immediately recognize the powerful humming noise that indicates a light saber ready for combat. And the variety of clashing sounds that the unit makes when the blade comes in contact with any sturdy obstruction is sure to thrill.
While too much rough play can take a toll on any toy, the construction behind this light saber seems sturdy and well thought out. Adults and kids with larger hands may find the hilt sits more comfortably in their grasp without the custom handles over it.
Overall, we had loads of fun creating a custom look, practicing crafty moves, and fighting off imaginary enemies with this light saber. Since the colored blade effect is achieved by projecting light into the clear plastic blade, playing with this light saber in a dark or dimly lit room provides extra drama and an increased dose of fun.
Because this toy calls forth an epic battle between good and evil, we imagine that having a playmate with a second light saber would increase the fun exponentially.

Multiple looks - As the box implies, you can make several different looking saber hilts. I would not go so far as to say over 1000 combinations like the box does. You'd have to count every smallest variation, no matter how small, possible to make that number.. But you have enough parts to make several cool and distinct hilts.
Parts - And those parts are, 1 main hilt for all parts to attach to and where all the electronics are, 1 clear saber blade, 3 rings [the top that holds the blade] one of which has a detachable blade guard so could be counted twice, 4 hilt sleeves that can be placed in various combinations, 5 end caps, and 3 crystals [Blue, Red and Green].
Lights - These crystals can be stored in a compartment in the bottom of the hilt or placed in slots in another side compartment to control the color of the blade. You have red, blue and green but you can also mix and match the crystals to get purple, white (pinkish white), yellow and aqua for 7 colors. My favorite is to just leave the crystals out entirely so that every time the saber is activated is cycles to the next color. All these lights are generated by combinations of 9 LED lights in the hilt, not bulbs which is a big plus for durability and no lenses needed.
Sounds - Each color gets a sound. There are 3 distinct "saber hums" depending on what color the blade is. Where one generic hum probably would have been expected they put in 3 and that is pretty cool. Each hum also has its own distinctive active and deactivate sounds.Read more ›
This time around theres a few new items that those of the original set never got which allows you to recreate the lightsabers of Yoda, Mace Windu, Count Dooku, and even Maris Brood from the video game "The Force Unleashed." Some elements from the original set are missing, such as the lens disks that went over the bulb and the bulb housing itself. Others, while still there, have changed in design, these are the sleeves, the hilt, and the caps.
The handle is, of course, the heart and soul of the set. In essence it's an LED flashlight powered by three AA batteris. Depending on how many of the "Kyber crystals" put in place a minimum of three out of the nine bulbs will always come on. Each set of three is linked to a certian crystal slot so as to activate the bulb of that color when you turn the lightsaber on. Also, the placement of the crystals helps to determine the sound effects.
Beyond the handle lightsaber construction is fairly simple once you get used to it. Simply place the telescopic blade over the LED end of the handle and then screw on one of the three sleeve rings to hold it in place. Select one of the three Kyber crystals, insert it into it's housing (there are three slots in the crystal housing, each fitting a particular crystal only and the none can be put into the wrong slot), and you're all set. In fact that's all you need do as the handle itself is nicely decorated already but is unable to hold the blade in place by itself.Read more ›
#1 - I would like Hasbro to sell a connector piece to allow two lightsaber hilts to be connected together to make a double-bladed lightsaber like the one wielded by Darth Maul. The first lightsaber kit had the ability to make a double-bladed lightsaber, but it was with one hilt, thus making it a rather small area to hold onto. This concept seems like it would be a no-brainer to the people at Hasbro as it would encourage people to buy two kits, rather than just the one.
#2 - I would appreciate if Hasbro would take the time to align the threads of the screw on pieces better so that they sit at better and straighter angles and are not lop-sided and misaligned. When you try to attach a front piece like Count Dooku's sleeve ring with Count Dooku's end cap, they are badly misaligned to each other.
Also, in regard to D Strick's comment, "Like I said, you'd have to be counting all the sounds, lights, putting things on backwards and upside down and all kinds of crazy stuff to get up to 1000 combo's." Well, naturally they are counting each and every nuance of all the variations. It is all in the wording. It doesn't say "Over 1,000 completely different and wholly unique variations of lightsabers possible." They aren't going to lie, just maybe use their verbiage to their benefit.
I want to say that I greatly appreciate the quality reviews so far written. It is nice to see that people other than trolls can still write reviews. :-)
