What Are the Benefits of Buying Replica Star Wars Lightsabers?
By Space Coast Daily // November 29, 2022
Since its debut in the late 70’s, the Star Wars franchise has been able to garner one of the largest fan bases in the world and with new Star Wars movies gracing our screens every couple of years, the cultural impact the franchise has will only continue to grow.
One of the ways fans show their love and commitment to the force is by collecting memorabilia from the franchise, of which the lightsaber is the most iconic. To a Star Wars faithful, owning a replica lightsaber is the ultimate way to connect with the force and feel like a true Jedi.
Below are some of the benefits of buying replica Star Wars lightsabers.
Connects you to Your Favourite Character
When it comes to connecting to your favourite character from the series, wielding a replica of their lightsaber is the closest you’re going to get to feel what they felt. So even if you can’t afford to have a replica of every kind of lightsaber used in the Star Wars universe, you should at least have a neopixel lightsaber.
They Complete Your Collection
As a true fan of the franchise, your Star Wars collection is far from complete without a replica lightsaber. Thankfully, there are several replica lightsaber manufacturers and sellers from all around the world, so finding a high-quality replica lightsaber to add to your Star Wars collection is quite easy.
You can even take things a step further by custom-crafting your own unique and one-of-a-kind lightsaber.
They can be Valuable Investments
If there is one thing die-hard Star Wars fans have in common, it’s that they like to collect items from the franchise and since the Star Wars universe continues to expand, you can expect that the franchise will have even more cultural impact in the foreseeable future.
This means that the limited edition replica lightsaber you own today could be resold at an even higher price in the future. For example Mace Windu‘s amethyst (purple) lightsaber is quite rare, but a popular fan favourite that continues to be in high demand and people are willing to pay top dollar for it.
Bear in mind that you will need to keep the lightsaber in pristine condition in order to get the best possible value for it.
They are Great for Dueling
Lightsaber duels have become quite popular these days, so if you’re a fan of martial arts, you can participate in these duels with your duelling lightsaber.
Thanks to technology, modern-day replica duel-ready lightsabers are created with highly durable blades and hilts, realistic sounds and effects, colour changing and Bluetooth features that make lightsaber duels very animated and fun.
They Make Your Cosplay More Authentic
Why even cosplay as Anakin Skywalker if you’re not going to complete the look with his classic blue-bladed lightsaber? Lightsabers are the most recognisable item from the franchise, even people outside the Star Wars fandom can immediately recognise it, so it only makes sense to add that detail to your Star Wars cosplay.
Adding a replica lightsaber to your costume allows you to fully and authentically embody whatever character you are cosplaying.
The lightsaber is an iconic symbol of the Star Wars franchise. It is the one item every true Star Wars fan should have in their collection.
Owning a replica Star Wars Lightsaber doesn’t just show your love for the franchise; it offers other benefits like making your cosplay more authentic and helping you connect with your favourite character.
