And you thought the lightsaber from the Episode VII trailer was dangerous. Announced today at Toy Fair in New York City, Hasbro's Star Wars Bladebuilders line finally allows fans of the series to invite new ways to chop their damn hands off.
Fans of toys and Star Wars have been waiting for this to happen for as long as the two things have existed simultanously, and we finally get them this fall, just in time for some new movie. Star Wars Bladebuilders will allow players to take apart and reconfigure sabers to their hears' content. Want to slice off your own arm? No problem. Take out a leg and someone else's eye? Done.
According to StarWars.com, the Bladebuilders sets will be available at a variety of price points. There's the Jedi Master Lightsaber for $50, which gives players access to the main weapon, extension hilts and all the lights and sounds. For $20 the Bladebuilders Classic Lightsabers will be styled after iconic weapons from the franchise universe, with components that can be removed and combine with others to make weird stuff. There'll also be extendible blade versions of the classics and foan blade versions, all compatible with the system.
I am so ready for these. I cannot wait to craft my very own lightsaber trident.
