Wonder how long before you can build one of these at Savi's?
Bet they won't be cheap.

I'm assuming you all have seen the Hacksmith retractable lightsaber? But, just in case you haven't: Youtube Video

They also have a "solid blade" version (that would I guess in theory let you fight with another lightsaber, but that one's not retractable).

    Which makes me wonder if it will appear 2-dimensional in person.
    It's a complete cylinder, though. Imagine two tape measures back to back, so they make a completely round shape. I'm guessing that the two halves interlock for strength. A saber, even for show, that the actors cannot swing seems not quite magical enough for Disney.

    Think about how floppy really thin cardboard is, but a cardboard tube? That's a play sword for kids (or adults:darth:)
