I got my lightsaber for when I go see Star Wars. $9.99 at Toys R' Us. Not bad, it doesn't light up, but it does extend and retract, so it's easier to carry

Hehehe...sounds exactly like the ones my boys have.

They sell models of the actual, Lucasfilm-licensed props for a hundred bucks at a store out here that I go to alot. They light up, make the noise and everything. Very classy, too; not the clunky, kidified Wal-Mart toy dept. thing. The hilt is stainless steel and the "blade" is glass or lucite or something. It's not retractable. It's for people who want to display it. Very cool.
