With Christmas just around the corner, most of your gifts have probably already been purchased, or are at least those on the forefront of your to-do list. The people left to buy gifts might be those whose interests run perpendicular to yours, which makes proper gift buying more of a chore than a pleasure. Maybe that person is a sci-fan, and maybe a bit of a shut-in, whose electricity bill might not be paid, so he might need help finding things in the dark. Voila! Lightsaber flashlights!
It’s so sad to know that the kid has grown up in some ways. Before watching this video, I sincerely was only thinking of practical reasons that one would use a flashlight, not for a second picturing waving it around like a jackass with my friends. Sigh. The innocence is dead.
Speaking of innocence dying, would you rather daintily wield the pastel baby blue beams of wittle bitty Anakin’s lightsaber, or masterfully sling the red Hell beam of the masked and matured Darth Vader? Vader’s isn’t in the video there, but it’s out there. As are those for Yoda and Darth Maul. Oddly enough, Luke Skywalker only gets keychain flashlights, or he’s lumped in with Anakin or Yoda, depending on which era of Luke you’re going for. But the damning news here is that Mace Windu’s amethyst lightsaber flashlight is nowhere to be seen. How am I supposed to be the tyranny of evil men all across my living room galaxy?
And just in case you’re more of a DIY kind of person, check out this video below. It seems to me like the casing from a plastic toy lightsaber could work with this even better.
