Sorry for posting here for traffic. It's our son's birthday and he really would like a replica Obi Wan lightsaber. I have no idea where to find one. Seen some on Etsy but they are 3D printed and may be just made of plastic? Anyone here have any knowledge where to buy a decent metal replica that's isn't expensive ? Thanks. He will be 14 so not wanting the toy shop type

I think you will struggle if it needs to be inexpensive. There are lots of decent ones- especially on American sites but, sadly, they cost hundreds.

How inexpensive? Had a quick look and it looks like you'd have to import from the US which means customs charges on top.

My husband has a Force FX from a company called Sideshow I think. Sideshow dont stock them any more, but its fucking awesome.
Think it cost £££. But, well. It's a lightsabre innit <shrug>

How much are you willing to pay?

Was hoping no more than £100

Sorry to high jack. Does anyone else’s young DC call it a “lightsaver”?

Check out the website Forbidden Planet .Sells loads of stuff like that .

@Stannisbaratheonsboxofmatches Makes sense- when you switch it off, it saves the light inside grin

StrawberryJam200 Sat 30-May-20 18:38:38

Yup to lightsaver!

@Stannisbaratheonsboxofmatches my HUSBAND calls it a lightsaver! grin

Stannisbaratheonsboxofmatches Sat 30-May-20 18:45:36

Oh good I’m glad it’s not just here that it’s called that!

7ofNine Sat 30-May-20 18:51:35

shock @TerrorWig. That's a divorcable offence!

Feellikedancingyeah Sat 30-May-20 19:58:27

That's unforgivable !

We’ve got a force FX one too from forbidden planet, I don't remember but they weren’t dramatically over £100 at the time. They’re replicas, really well made. But still just a glorified toy 😂

My DS has one from ultrasabers which is very good quality and definitely not a toy. Probably just over £100 once you factor in shipping

VimFuego101 Sat 30-May-20 20:12:13

ForceFX are really good quality. I think they're more like 200 pound range though.

My husband is currently waiting for delivery of his from Ali express (sigh) and apparently the reviews are good but it will take a while to arrive.

Forbidden planet sounds good.. Website down at the moment so will keep trying
