EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Five varieties of lightsaber are shown in our review: Luke, Obi-Wan, Yoda, Darth Maul, and the ancestral Darksaber of the Mandalorians. Out of the box, the lightsabers come in varying degrees of assembly, Luke's is intact, while Darth Maul's will come in several parts. Of course the fun of these lightsabers is in the construction. Wherever you see a spring loaded button, you can press down, and then pull or twist the two components apart. Each lightsaber set on its own has a straightforward configuration, but where it gets really interesting is in mixing and matching. Each part from one set can be combined with a compatible part from another set. Want a red blade with a gold hilt? Can do! Or if you're feeling super chaotic, pair a Jedi's green blade with a Darth Maul motif. Speaking of the lightsaber blades, they are retractable only to a certain point, since the inside of the saber changes based on what combo you have.

Some of these sabers have lights and sounds! As long as you have a Phillips screwdriver and no more than 3 AAA batteries, you'll be good to go! Darth Maul, Luke, and the Darksaber all have battery compatibility. The sounds activate with the press of a button, and trigger based on movements.

Is It Fun?

Absolutely! Buy any two lightabers from the Forge line and you will be able to make a saber never before seen by anyone. Mix and match to express your creativity and unique connection with the Force.

Who It’s For

The Lightsaber Forge line of toys is ideal for Padawan boys and girls aged 4 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

- Not all Forge sets are battery compatible. However, every set includes a handle and button that can accommodate a battery compartment from another set. For example, Yoda's Lightsaber on it's own includes no battery functionality. But if you take Darth Maul's battery compartment, and match it with Yoda's outer handle, you can still activate the lights and sounds via a molded button in Yoda's handle.

- When in doubt: any set with a translucent blade has battery compatibility, any set with an opaque blade does not.

- Lightsaber blades do not fully retract like other toy lightsabers, as the handles are not hollow, due to the interlocking capability.
