May the Force be with you



My house is filled with STAR WARS fans, most likely stemming from my hubby’s still pristine collection of toys from when he was young. Guys, he has the original Millennium Falcon and a encased pack of original figurines.

It’s not entirely shocking that he still has all these toys, I still have my own darth-vader-star-wars-ultimate-fx-lightsaberCabbage Patch Dolls and other beloved toys from my childhood. I think it’s pretty cool, and guests that come over are blown away.

It doesn’t matter if you are 5 or 50, when you spot a STAR WARS Lightsaber, you just gotta play with it.

Whether you are a fan or not, yielding a lightsaber around makes you feel young! Ahh yes, the force is strong my friends. 

Thanks to HASBRO, we’ve been channeling that force and a whole lot of fun, with the Star Wars Darth Vader Ultimate FX Lightsaber. It has an authentic lightsaber sound and lights, you can’t help but but really get into the Jedi character. 

Features include:

  • Power up and power down effects, glowing blade, humming sound, battle clash lights and sounds, motion sensor-controlled sound effects
  • 3″ diam. x 36″ l.
  • Batteries not included
  • Ages 6 years and up

 The girls {and I} have so much fun playing STAR WARS with this lightsaber that we’ve gone out and purchased another for one of their friends, who is a huge STAR WARS fan.

I know he’ll just love opening it at Christmas, and at $49.99 {found at stores like Toys R Us and Sears} it’s a gift that doesn’t break the bank. Ideal for the kid {or kid at heart}!

    this would definitely be for my son (36 yrs old) who is a gigantic fan of Star Wars. Shame that it won’t reach the winner in time for Christmas. If I won it wouldn’t be too bad as his birthday is in early Spring. :-)

    I would likely give this lightsabre to my cousin who would like to add this to his collection!
    Good luck everyone and happy holidays! :)
