Star Wars Force FX Lightsabers - The Jedi Negotiation Tool Available In A Galaxy Near You

Q: What is the blade on the Force FX lightsaber made of?:
A: The Force FX lightsaber features a permanently attached polycarbonate blade. Once activated, the blade glows brightly and the replica plays back digitally recorded sound effects taken directly from the film.

Q: Is the blade on the Force FX lightsaber removable?:
A: No, the blade is not removable or retractable. There are a number of wires and electronics systems in the blade that would not be as durable or reliable if we made the blade removable.

Q: How do the light and sound effects work in the Force FX lightsaber?:
A: The Force FX lightsaber incorporates two motion sensors which sense both the motion of the blade as well as when it comes in contact with something. An on-board, multi-channel chip is programmed with digital sound effects originally created for the movie by Skywalker Sound. The Force FX lightsaber replicates the following sound effects:

Idle hum
Swing (with pitch change)

Q: How long will the light in the Force FX lightsaber last?:
A: It should run for several hours on a fresh set of batteries. The electronics, if cared for properly, should last for several thousand hours of use. Replace the batteries whenever the performance begins to change, such as reduced brightness or volume.

Q: Can I use my Force FX lightsaber for dueling?:
A: This product should not be used to strike others. Although the blade is very durable, it should never be used for fighting or dueling. The Force FX lightsaber was produced as a collectible; it was not intended for dueling. That said, we've had several successful Lightsaber battles here at the ThinkGeek offices. How can you resist especially with the 'clash' sound effects that occur when the blade strikes another object?

Some other features:

-Glowing blades ignites with realistic power-up/down effects!
-Authentic sound effects digitally recorded from the movie.
-Features four motion sensor controlled sound effects, Power-up, idle hum, clash, and power-down
-Durable metal hilt looks and feels like a real lightsaber.
-Sturdy blade is permanently attached to the hilt
-Comes with a custom-designed display stand when you need a break from dueling.
