If you are here, I can assume you are a hardcore fan of Star Wars. So, welcome to this world of Star Wars Galaxy, where you can find anything and everything about Star Wars. To become a Jedi, you must let the Force guide you to the right paths.
The first step to becoming a true Jedi Knight is finding the lightsaber that connects with you. Unfortunately, we do not live in the galaxy of Star Wars. In our world, it is very difficult to find a worthy lightsaber. In a world full of fake products, I have prepared a list of the best Star Wars lightsaber replicas for you. So, have a look at these real lightsaber replicas and choose the right one.
1 Darth Vader’s Legacy Lightsaber
We all want to become a Jedi like Obi-Wan, but we all have a little bit of Darth Vader inside us. Despite the evil persona of Darth Vader, he is still one of the best and most loved characters of Star Wars.
Like Darth Vader, his red lightsaber is glorious and unmatchable. His lightsaber was designed with two Kyber crystals, one red Kyber crystal, and another artificial synthetic crystal. His lightsaber was mighty and too heavy for a normal person even to pick it. Darth Vader relied on brute strength, and his heavy lightsaber supported him in his heavy blows of Ataru combat form.
Luckily this lightsaber is now within your grasp. Disney created Darth Vader’s legacy lightsaber, which is a precise replica of Darth Vader’s red lightsaber. This lightsaber follows the same size and weight as Vader’s lightsaber. The lightsaber looks so realistic with extremely precise details of the hilt.
Darth Vader’s legacy lightsaber may cost you up to $220, excluding the tax at Disney World or Walt Disney World. You may not get other lightsaber accessories with it, like a blade or stand. You will have to buy them separately.
2 Official Disney Yoda Lightsaber
Let’s have a look at an ancient lightsaber. I mean, it must have been made centuries ago when Master Yoda was young. Master Yoda is considered the wisest Jedi that ever existed. But when he turned his lightsaber ON, he felt like the most dangerous and powerful Jedi.
Master Yoda wielded a Shoto lightsaber. Only a few characters have used a Shoto lightsaber in the Star Wars series, including Ahsoka Tano’s yellow lightsaber she used in Clone Wars. The green small-sized lightsaber of Master Yoda had been grabbing the attention of Star Wars enthusiasts for more than a decade now. No wonder Disney had to launch an official Yoda Lightsaber, or fans would go crazy.
The official Disney Yoda lightsaber is also Disney’s most realistic lightsaber replica ever created. It is a small-sized lightsaber with a green blade. If you prefer a long-bladed lightsaber, this may not suit you. Although, for some people who prefer the Jar’Kai combat form, this is the most suitable lightsaber, especially with a reverse grip. Secondly, the Shoto lightsaber is perfect for kids. It is lightweight, small-sized, and fits comfortably in the hands of the kids. So, it can be a great gift for a birthday, Halloween, or Christmas.
The blade is non-retractable, and the lights are less vibrant and shiny. Still, overall the Yoda lightsaber is a great choice to have a display in the house if not for dueling.
3 Count Dooku Legacy Lightsaber
If we move back into the old Republic, we will remember an iconic character, Count Dooku, who tried to change it all. He is the person who identified the flaws in the system of the Republic and wanted to change it for good. Yes! He was a Sith lord, but many believed he worked with positive intentions of bringing the Republic back to the track.
Count Dooku, also known as Darth Tyrannous, was a skilled lightsaber user with proficiency in Makashi, the 2nd lightsaber combat form. He was the only person we saw in Clone Wars who used Form II of lightsaber combats. Of course, his unique lightsaber supported him in the precise and swift movements of 2nd form.
Count Dooku wielded a red-colored standard lightsaber. After growing acceptance of Count Dooku among the fans, Disney responsibility created the Count Dooku legacy lightsaber for the fans to have fun with.
This legacy lightsaber is a beautiful piece of art, and the details are in-depth and so precise, that it gives an astonishing appearance. You can get it at Galaxy’s Edge, and it will cost you $220 dollar. You may get a display stand for free, but you must buy the blade separately.
Count Dooku Legacy lightsaber is comfortable to hold and swing around. The hilt follows the same tilted design as Dooku’s lightsaber. It is lightweight and supports smooth swings. The price of this lightsaber may sound hefty, but considering the features and work done on it, the lightsaber is worth the price.
4 Legacy Darksaber
The hardcore fans who have watched “Star Wars: Rebels, The Mandalorian, and The Book of Boba Fett.” are aware of this magical lightsaber. Torre Vizsla created the Darksaber, but since then, it has become more than just a weapon of a Jedi.
The Darksaber has become the symbol of power in Mandalore. Anyone who wins the Darksaber in a duel gets to rule the entire Mandalorian planet. The Darksaber passed from different hands till he came into the possession of Din Djarin, as seen in the Mandalorian series.
The legacy Darksaber Disney recently launched is a beautiful piece of art, a wizard, I would say. It is one of the best legacy lightsabers Disney has launched. But what is so special about it?
As we know, the Dakrsaber has a Beskar-made hilt. Disney successfully designed the hilt to make it look like it is as tough as a Beskar. It is made of metal, though, which is the most reliable material for lightsaber hilts. The design is the exact copy of the Mandalorian Darksaber.
The legacy Darksaber has a unique sword-like blade, unlike any other lightsabers. You get this blade alongside the legacy Darksaber. While turning ON, the Darksaber illuminates Dark colors with bright outer edges. This feature makes the Darksaber unique, and Disney has successfully replicated it and made it the most realistic lightsaber.
5 Luke Skywalker Force FX Lightsaber
Luke Skywalker’s third green lightsaber is very popular among the Star Wars community. It is not only the lightsaber of the protagonist of the original Star War trilogy but also one of the few first-ever lightsabers that appeared in the 1970s. The fans stormed the internet for this lightsaber after Luke Skywalker appeared with his green lightsaber in “The Mandalorian.” season 2.
Realizing the need of the fans, Disney announced Luke Skywalker Force FX lightsaber. It is a standard lightsaber but exceptional in many ways, like the premium effects and illuminating green blade. You get many sound effects like turning ON, clashing, and many more.
If you are an adult, watching Star Wars since your childhood, getting a Luke Skywalker Force FX lightsaber will be the best decision to recreate your childhood moments.
The Luke Skywalker Force FX lightsaber may cost you above $200, but it will be worth it. You can save the effort of traveling all the way to the Disney theme park and try this lightsaber at our online lightsabers store.
In a nutshell, these are some of the lightsabers I would prefer if I begin on the journey of becoming a true Jedi Knight. You can also try other lightsabers at Galaxy’s Edge. If you prefer to explore the lightsaber with specs and details, try our store Zia Sabers.
