It’s been a hell of a week for Star Wars fans. There’s the release of the very fine Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker Lego sets. Plus, those insanely cool Star Wars watches for men. But no proper Star Wars toy drop would be complete without a new lightsaber for those who love their Star Wars characters.
What makes this new Kylo Ren lightsaber, which just launched, stand out? Well, Kylo Ren, as we know, is dealing with some existential conflicts. It’s what makes him such a complex, multi-dimensional, hard-to-hate baddie. And hence, so is his lightsaber. It contains crystal activators that split the plasma stream into three channels. Unlike their cheaper brethren, Force FX lightsabers have a real metal hilt, plus they light up and make movie-inspired lightsaber sounds.
What this means is that you get a lightsaber with 80 LEDs and movie-inspired sound effects, rendering this the most realistic Force FX lightsaber ever released. And it looks pretty much exactly like the weapon dear ol’ Kylo uses in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
The coolest thing it can is what’s called the tip drag effect: Make it look like you’re slicing through something.
