If You Had A Real Saber...
« on: November 12, 2012, 05:18:30 PM »
There's a couple questions I've been asking myself since I've started on this forum and try as I might, I can't find the following topic anywhere...

If someone walked out of the Star Wars universe right now and offered you any ONE lightsaber, a real lightsaber, which one would it be?

And...What would you use it for?
Wait! Think about it, it's not as easy to answer honestly as one might think. I'm pretty sure none of us would go hacking people in half (hopefully), so what would you actually use it for?


Feel free to answer any one or both of these. Some of you have to be a little curious...right?


For me it's a no brainer. ORIGINAL LUKE ANH BLUE BOY! No question. It's my favorite saber of all time and always will be.
 I'd use it to redecorate the cars of people who park in two spaces like the nerf herder at lunch today...   ;-)

hmmm... tough choice. either Luke's RotJ or Starkiller's TFU 1. those have always been my favorites.

but for using it? wouldn't. would have it locked in a display case and only turn it on for friends (and when i'm messing with it alone of course ;)). unless of course Darth shows up in which case i'd have to do some epic battling. lol

I would use it to cut down trees, cut metal, etc. It would be an awesome putting tool, especially if you could fine the the blade into a keen light beam.

Hilt wise?

I'd probably go with the Maul.  That way, I could cut it in half and have 1 fully workable lightsaber, and I'd reverse engineer the other and make my own hilt for the innards  ;)

Obi tpm.  It just feels like a lightsaber to me.  If you layed 10 sabers on the table and that was one of them, that would be the one i'd bet would actually work.  Luke rotj is a close second

I consider the Wat Obi TPM a real lightsaber 8) so I already have a real saber :D

I'd go with either Count Dooku's or Starkiller's TFU 1 saber :)

I agree with The_Night. Locked in a display case for only showing off and occasionally swinging around.

I would definitely go with the Obiwan ANH.  Elegant.

I would keep the saber and do shows (demos) and travel the world.  I think I would pay to see a real lightsaber in person...

I'd absolutely pay to even see one!

I don't know if I'd show it to anyone...and stick around.
You'd end up in some government black bag somewhere without your saber cause they confiscated it.

Another possible use though...I heard during Sandy some guy used his Prius to get some power to his house. Wonder how many jiggawatts something like the Maul puts out? I'm sure it's in a book somewhere...

Luke ANH, no question. First one I saw and loved. Then Obi ANH, then Luke ROTJ.

I'd use it for cutting holes in walls, cutting people out of collapsed buildings, plasma bladed jaws of life... you name it. Its an all purpose rescue tool/defensive weapon.

But a real one would be so scary to wield... one slip and the consequences are dire.

I think mine would be a Luke ROTJ, dirty V2 style...

...and what would I do with it? First thing I'd tweak it so it was like a 'youngling saber' for the forseeable time being and couldn't actually do any real damage. And then practice and play a lot; ironic, I s'pose: that, given a real lightsaber, I'd be excited and terrified of potential damage and injury and the first thing I'd do would be to make it more like one of our 'toy' replicas and less like the real thing  :D

It would be bad if I had one. Because I would actually go around playing Sith lol No but I would keep it on my side all the time, especially at night. Yes it would definitely be a great around the house or out in the woods cutting tool. Definitely would take it with me camping. But I think after I had my fun/ pretend time with it, I would store it away in a nice display case. DOOKU or LUKE ROTJ

Oh, and I would definitely make a video and post it here on the forums and laugh as you all squirmed!!!! Lol ABSOLUTE POWA!!

i'd go for a starkiller tfu I...  :)

i would swing it around and enjoy the swing sounds :D can a real lightsaber handle different fonts?  ::) i also would go to a junk yard and cut a lot of big things  ;D cutting pizza is nice aswell (you don't even have to clean the blade and wash the dishes :D ) i guess there are a lot more things i would do...  ;D

but display? noooo, a lightsaber is just to useful to not use it! ;)

great thread btw ;)

Definitely a Luke ROTJ V2. It screams LIGHTSABER from far away...

I'd use it as a self defense weapon, so it means that I would carry it with me everywhere, outside and inside home.
