If you’re one of those people that flipped out all over the internet when the new ‘Cross Guard’ Lightsaber was revealed in the first ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ teaser trailer, you may want to turn back now, because you’re just going to get more upset reading this. That said, Hasbro is making is possible for kids (or, ya know, adult collectors) to design and build their very own Lightsabers!
With their all new Star Wars Blade Builders, fans can use various parts from the main starter ’Master Jedi’ kit or one of the various expansion packs to create their very own Lightsaber design! You want two blades? Sure! Why not go for four! Or six even! The possibilities are pretty endless!
