It hasn't been done...yet. But in the sci-fi terms that define what a lightsaber is constructed of, it wouldn't work. But even George Lucas himself admitted that he was simply creating fiction and didn't know anything about how it would work. He just called it a lightsaber because...well...it emits light. When you go home and say "turn on the light, would ya?" are you referring to a nonstop beam of light? No, you're visually describing an incandescent bulb operated by electricity, which of course emits light. Same thing applies to a lightsaber - it emits light, but that doesn't mean it is made of light. When little Anakin told Qui Gon that he saw his laser sword, are you going to accept that as fact? Anakin was a kid when he said that, and had no knowledge of how a lightsaber was constructed, nor physics for that matter. You're gonna go off the word of a KID? If you want to build a lightsaber, you have no choice but to go with existing technology, and if it doesn't exist, well then - invent it. A plasma saber can be called a lightsaber because it would emit light. Plasma is possible here people. It occurs naturally everyday. Physicists always yammer about how you can't generate enough power to inject a plasma into a magnetic field, which bugs me because they're always talking about plasma and magnetic fields as if one has absolutely nothing to do with the other - like they should be regarded as two separate and unlinked entities. Let's talk electricity. A flow of charge generates an electromagnetic field, and vice-versa an EM field will generate a flow of charge. Now let's talk about conductivity. Your best conductors are silver and copper. These are good conductors. Some materials oppose a flow of charge - these are known as nonconductors. But, as fate would have it, nonconductors will conduct just fine if they become ionized. For example, a simple capacitor utilizes this concept. A charge builds up one one end of the capacitor, seeking to dump to the other end to complete its circuit. To accomplish this task, a nonconductor is sandwiched in between. And that's when something amazing happens. When enough charge builds up, the nonconductor becomes ionized and the capacitor is able to make its charge dump. When this occurs, the nonconductive material returns to its nonconductive state and the process starts all over again. Of course, you're thinking, how does this answer my question? We live on a giant capacitor. The clouds in the sky will gradually build up a static charge. And naturally, when enough charge builds up, you get lightning. Air is a nonconductive material until it becomes ionized. And when a material becomes ionized, this means that each atom has enough energy to excite its electrons to another level until one gets bumped off. What results is a flow of charge, a flow of electrons, charge in motion - a current, pushed by a massive voltage. This of course leads me right into plasma. What IS plasma? Plasma is simply an ionized gas. It doesn't matter what type of gas it is, as long as it IS a gas. Air is a gas, and when it becomes ionized, it is converted to plasma - this is what we call lightning. And, of course, I'll say it again - any charge in motion generates an EM field, and therefore plasmas generate their own EM fields. This is all I will say for now - that lightning (electron arcing) is the simplest way to create a plasma saber. Of course, lightning zigzags, because it follows a nonlinear path of the least resistive molecules in the air. If you use a laser in tandem to heat the molecules, this will provide a linear path of least resistance. And PLEASE remember that like polarities will always repel. If you keep it simple, simple solutions will always present themselves. This is all I will write, for if I give any more information, it simply would be no fun for you. But if you understood what I wrote and what it implies, I'm sure you can figure out the rest. The answer is YES. It is definitely possible, and it is even easy if you have the proper resources and knowledge. This answer brought to you by http://boardster.net/Lightsmith

On Star Wars Battlefront 1, you can not get a lightsaber. However, you can play as a Jedi or a Sith on Star Wars Battlefront 2, Renegade Squadron, and Elite Squadron.


In order to do so, you must be a jedi and you must reach level 22 in order to claim your training lightsaber. A lightsaber can be produced by using a lightsaber crafting tool and resources.


You can only buy a lightsaber in the Lego Star Wars games.

enter lightsaber. its great :] enter lightsaber. its great :]


If you'd like to watch Lightsaber duels go to www.youtube.com.


In Star Wars : The Old Republic you will be given quests to find parts of the lightsaber. After you have completed these quests you will have to go to a certain place. Then you will be able to put the parts together and make your lightsaber to use


The lightsaber crystals change your lightsaber's blade color


I could be wrong but I believe they can change the color of your lightsaber



I've never seen Star Wars 4 but I do know that the blue lightsaber Luke was using belonged to Anakin Skywalker, his father. When Darth Vader chopped off Luke's arm in The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars 5, he lost the blue lighsaber. Between Star Wars 5 and Star Wars 6, Return of the Jedi, Luke made a new lightsaber, the green one.


Yes, if you have the correct crystal.


I would have to say a lightsaber or a blaster


Its on http://www.lego.com in the star wars section. There are four or five duels in the Anamated Clonewars episodes


cause in star wars episode 1 his lightsaber droped by Darth maul so that is hoe he got a new lightsaber


Obi-Wan's lightsaber has been blue, in all the Star Wars films he has appeared in.


I do not think that there is a code for the lightsaber. However you can get his robes and boots using this code: trudooku.



Maybe try looking it up on google or yahoo search? or just go here: http://www.cheatcodes.com/wii/star-wars-the-clone-wars-lightsaber-duels-wii/cheats.html



MODS if you dont have PC your screwed


anyone with a cape and lightsaber ... i think


From what I know, some toy stores have a lightsaber-making kit which has 1,000 different designs.


how do you get moulkiller on star wars the force unleashed 2
