    Fellow Star Wars Fans,

    One of the greatest things, if not the greatest thing in the Star Universe is the use of lightsabers!
    Throughout the movies they have always been the iconic elegant weapon for a more civilized age.

    The Jedi and Sith have not only used these weapons to fight but using the glowing color to display their allegiance to the light or dark!
    As lightsabers evolve, so do those who carry them, from the way they hold it, to the style they use to fight and every force user is different.
    So Episode VIII will see more lightsabers but a lot of questions will circle for the next year.
    So I thought we should discuss some of them.

    (dual)

    [​IMG]

    SOME QUESTIONS WE CAN COVER HERE!

    * How did Maz get the Graflex?
    * What will Luke be carrying?
    * What lightsaber will Rey use?
    * If not the Graflex which will she have?
    * What lightsaber will Kylo Ren have?
    * Will the Knights of Ren have lightsabers?
    * Will Vaders saber appear and if so when?
    * What lightsaber if any, would Snoke have?
    * What lightsabers do you want to see?
    * Will Finn end up with a lightsaber?
    * Will the combat be styled more like PT or OT?
    * Which lightsabers will meet in battle?


    .... and everything in between, any questions you might have let's talk about them...

    (red)(green)(blue)(crossguard)(green)(blue)(red)(green)(blue)(crossguard)(green)(blue)(red)

    It's such an iconic lightsaber!
    --- Double Post Merged, Dec 18, 2016 ---
    I personally, would love to see at least one or two of the KOR carrying lightsabers, now I don't know if they would be force sensitive
    but I think they have an obsession with Darth Vader and in turn want to carry a saber like he did.....

    I will always love Anakins/Luke/Reys lightsaber.
    --- Double Post Merged, Dec 18, 2016, Original Post Date: Dec 18, 2016 ---
    I hope in Episode VIII they show the first live action building of a lightsaber by either Rey or Kylo, that would be amazing.

    i don't care about seeing them build 'em, but i do kinda hope Rey ends up with a double-bladed blue saber. can't imagine Kylo Ren with anything but what he's got. if he's going to change sabers, i'd like to see him get Anakin's.

    This should answer which lightsaber is my favorite:

    Some concept arts pictured the KOR with lightsaber:
    [​IMG] p7K1jx6.jpg

    This would be an awesome new lightsaber for Kylo Ren.

    No.

    A mixture of both styles. The TFA duel was pretty good.

    Graflex? I assume you mean Anakin's lightsaber. Probably stolen but we'll likely never find out. Besides I suspect it would turn out to be too complex and convoluted to explain. They needed Rey to have the lightsaber so she has it.
    His second awesome green lightsaber, unless he's become some pacifist hippy like a section of the fandom wishes him to be.
    I would like her to craft a double bladed lightsaber to suit her staff combat skills but she is almost certainly going to wield excalibur Anakin's lightsaber due how they've made it some mythical sword in the stone weapon.
    Because it's so unique I'm inclined to think that they will keep Kylo's original lightsaber but it would be a nice poetic touch if Vader's lightsaber found its way into Kylo hands. The two blades of Anakin Skywalker clashing with each other has obvious symbolism.
    I hope so but the brief glimpse we had of them in TFA seemed to show them with non-lightsaber melee weapons. Maybe that will change but at the moment they're being built up simply to be high class mooks.
    probably a normal if oversized lightsaber. I believe it's been said that he will be around 7 feet tall so not ridiculously massive but big enough to be an intimidating opponent.
    I fervently hope so but lightsabers don't grow on trees unless he takes one off a Knight of Ren but even they don't have one so I don't know. Finn shall have to go forward armed with humour and optimism, mostly humour.
    A mixture of both perhaps? The PT was far too over choreographed to the extent that it was clear the duelists weren't even trying to kill each other while the OT was obviously limited by technology at the time of filming. I think more skilled combat than TFA but still gritty and brutal.

    first of all this is the best thread ever. My favorite lightsaber is the blue one.handed down from Skywalker to Skywalker .;) I also like that medieval style (pre sith?) ren lightsaber. Perhaps snoke will wield a spiked mace?

    I hope Rey forges her own lightsaber at some point like Luke did. Think she will introduce a yellow lightsaber finally to live action. Always been my favorite lightsaber color. [​IMG]

    I would love that but if she does that they are basically condemning her to be compared to Bastila Shan for the rest of eternity. 4424514-bastila_shan_.jpg

    If we don't see it I'm gonna get up and leave the theater. :p

    Nah, but after Rogue One handled Vader like it did, I'm confident we'll see everything we're hoping to see.

    I live to serve! Yeah, I would like snoke to carry something similar to Sidious, like classy and understated .
    --- Double Post Merged, Dec 20, 2016, Original Post Date: Dec 20, 2016 ---
    Omg, yes, I would love to see that, it's something we need!

    --- Double Post Merged, Dec 20, 2016 ---
    Ah yes, Dooku's saber is a classy weapon! I wish I could edit the vote pole now haha.
    --- Double Post Merged, Dec 21, 2016 ---


    WOOOW ! Some amazing answers here guys! I have been thinking mostly around the Knights of Ren an their usefulness........

    In Rogue one when Jyn is going through the project names, there is one, that made me wee a little with excitement, "Black Saber"! Which if you have ever watched TCW animated series you see our Mando beast Vizla carrying a Darksaber! The weapon also resurfaced on a episode of Rebels! Blacksaber I believe is Disney's Darksaber!

    This is the Darksaber, for those who don't know...
    [​IMG]

    This weapon is an amazing option for a swordsman, that may not be force sensitive and need to defeat themself
    from a lightsaber or blaster rounds.

    MY THEORY! Why is this weapons now becoming a thing? Why are we seeing it again!?

    Because I think some of these guys will be carrying them......
    [​IMG]

    The Darksaber/ Blacksaber was never confirmed to use a Kyber, it was said it was an experitmental weapon by the Jedi to use
    swords without Kybers until it was ultimately stolen. Now it's common knowledge The First Order, raided all files and left overs of the Empire, I reckon knowing Ren's Knights would eventually meet lightsabers at some point, they're going to be carrying a version of it! Now as the Empire had rekt the galaxy of Kyber , and I am guessing TFO used a Kyber planet for Starkiller, chances are Kyber isn't a first option so making these would make sense.

    We've seen so much from Rebels enter the movie space! So, why would they make a focus of it, not only in Rebels but Rogue one, if it didn't play a larger part ;) . Now I think the Acolytes of the Beyond will reform into the KOR come the last installment of Aftermath. If so none of these guys are force sensitive and none would last 10 seconds against Luke or a decent force user!

    [​IMG]

    Thoughts?

    yeah, I would love to see the darksaber in real movie. Could be cool, but I wonder if the effects/lighting/coloring works onscreen. ;)
