April Fools': Lifelites' LEDSaber: A Self-Contained Light-Up Lightsaber

The reason FBTB came to be. We don't forget our roots.

April Fools': Lifelites' LEDSaber: A Self-Contained Light-Up Lightsaber

Postby Staff » Thu Mar 31, 2011 10:56 pm





You had me at self-contained. Rob Hendrix, the master craftsman behind Lifelites.com has come up with a product that everyone and their sister will want for the Star Wars minifigs: a completely self-contained light up lightsaber. He's sourced a manufacturer to create special batteries to his specifications to fit inside a standard LEGO lightsaber hilt. Simply plug in a lightsaber blade and voila! You have yourself a glowing lightsaber. No more wires, no more unremovable lightsabers, simply the best solution that everybody's been waiting for. Rob says that the batteries should last anywhere between 8-12 months depending on usage. No word on cost yet as that has yet to be determined. For more information, hit up his site. I can hear the lightsaber sound effects now...

Almost too good to be true. And since it's the first of April I would say it is a well meaning hoax.
