    HIs hologram size is not his actual size. He is a humanoid approximately 7 ft tall according to the article (Empire magazine, I believe) prior to TFA. I would not expect it to be too much larger.

    OMG YES! I would love to see like Yellow, Purple, White or just anything! But honestly I don't think they will do that, which makes me sad as haha. I would love to see another evil force user, eg, one of the Knights of Ren carrying a purple saber, an enemy not with a red saber! Would be cool!

    So far I think in VIII we will only have again the Bespin saber used by Rey and Kylo's crosssaber. Luke won't have a saber in VIII at least. :oops: They will stay with the 2 sabers for VIII and in IX 1-2 more sabers. VIII may have a few other melee weapons used by special stormies and the KoR. :rolleyes:

    The Clone Wars TV show had a wooden lightsaber hilt. I would love to see one of them in live-action :).

    I bought two of the high end lightsabers back in the day, running $120 bucks each. I got Anakin's and Vaders, because I felt they were the most iconic (even though Anakin/Luke's kept changing from movie to movie in design). They are both fantastic and I still pull them out from time to time to play around with my son.

    I was always happy with them, but lately I am thinking about getting all 5 of the Sith/dark side sabers. I have Darth Vader's, but it would be cool to get both halves of Maul, Tyrannus, and Sidious. The new Kylo Ren saber is coming down in price so it might be a good time.

    As far as new ones go for the ST, I hope they just keep it to a few. I'm not a prequel basher by any means, but the mountain of sabers we saw in those 3 movies took away some of the magic. In the ST they should be as rare as they were in the OT. Rey, Kylo, Luke and Snoke is all we need to see in these 3 movies.

    Ahh well, forget that. I just looked on ebay to see what the Darth Tyrannus/Dooku saber is going for. $600-1,200. Screw that.

    Why are you ignoring Kylo's lightsaber in a unique iconic lightsaber thread lol? Maybe because this trilogy did show a iconic new custom saber.

    If Finn ends up being force sensitive I think it would be really cool for his lightsaber to be constructed out of Stormtrooper armor. We saw in the Clone Wars that some Jedi (the Wookie youngling) would build their saber casing out of a martial close to them (the bark of a Kashyyyk tree). Since Finn's entire life until Jakku was a stormtrooper it would be cool if instead of running from it he accepted his past and used that material. I made a quick mock-up of what i mean but I am not the best at drawing and it is hard to show the Stormtrooper material in drawing form. As for the blade color, I don't know if they should branch too far from the Blue/Green/Red, for Finn at least the blue looked really Maclunkey sick glowing on him in the dark forest on Starkiller so for him I'd say keep blue.

    I would love to see Rey construct her own lightsaber but I agree that I don't think she'll use anything but the Bespin blade for TLJ. What I always thought would be cool would be if she incorporated her staff. We saw her use it briefly on Jakku but seeing as she has years of experience wielding her staff, I feel that she may profit from using that fighting technique as her primary. Then she could have a double bladed lightsaber.
    However, I think she'll be trained in one-blade saber fighting using the Bespin blade. So...a girl can dream. I just thought that what's the point of introducing the staff if she only uses it so briefly.

    The trees are like Stormtrooper armor in that the trees were a huge part of the Wookie youngling's past and upbringing so that material meant something to him and was important in the construction of his saber, If you look at Finn's past it is entirely the life of a stormtrooper so the equivalent to Finn would be to construct his saber out of Trooper armor.

    Vader castle most likely. No one knows how many times he left the death star during NH period, could have took it on a trip back.

    It makes sense that Vader would take Kenobi's lightsaber as a trophy of his victory over him. I guess the question is, did he think to get it off the Death Star. And it only needs to still exist if the story tellers need it for future movies. Otherwise, just assume it was destroyed with the DS without addressing it.
