    LEGO Lightsabers: Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker

    created by scott34567 on 2012.02.29

    Main Section
    When the Republic had become nothing but a memory, and the Empire was at the height of its power two people, father and son, were about to determine the fate of the galaxy aboard the second Death Star. Who will decide the fate of the galaxy? You will. Build your lightsaber, choose your side...

    This set captures the iconic form of Darth Vader's and Luke Skywalker's Return of the Jedi lightsabers in brick-built Lego form.

    My idea is to allow us mere humans not in that galaxy far, far away to participate in the age-old Jedi and Sith tradition of completing our skills and building by offering a set that allows us to build two of the most iconic lightsabers in the Star Wars universe. Just like the "real thing" each lightsaber has a crystal inside.

    These lightsabers are sturdy enough to withstand being handled and sturdy enough to support the blade concept. Furthermore, I want to make these hilts as realistic as possible to pass off as a prop for a costume (for people who are into that sort of thing)...they can take the abuse of a convention crowd! I proudly showed these off at Megacon 2013.

    UPDATES 13 December 2013:
    Based on the new project guidelines, this set has evolved into a stand alone set that includes two iconic lightsabers of the Star Wars Universe and the movie Return of the Jedi...Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker. Based on your feedback, these are the two lightsabers you have expressed the most interest in, and these are the lightsabers I have decided to go forward with.

    Blade concept! Each lightsaber is designed to have a brick built blade attach to the hilt. Not strong enough for dueling, but strong enough for looking awesome!

    Congratulations on 5,000 Supporters!

    You're halfway there, proving that 5,000 people agree, there's not anyone who doesn't, in fact, like lightsabers. 

    We really enjoy what you've added to the project since our last comment, it's good to know these babies will stand up to convention goers. After all, these light sabers are something that need to be shown off!

    Good luck as you journey to 10,000 supporters! You're in the final stretch!

    Great work, scott34567! These are really awesome looking brick-built Lightsabers with tons of great detail. But for a few telltale signs, they look like they could be real. They'd be great to show on a shelf, or to wear at a Star Wars™ Celebration event.

    Good luck on your journey to 10,000 supporters!
