I'm not sure if I like the new lightsaber. It doesn't seem very well thought out.

There have been a lot of different and odd lightsaber designs throughout the comics and books, so I'm alright with them incorporating something new into the movies. Looks like a guard you'd find on a sword, just done with the plasma beams of a lightsaber.

Still haven't gotten around to seeing Episode 1,2,4,5 and 6... Guess I'm way behind :P

you younglings don't know what you're missing...try reading some of the books!

I can see the accidents happen already with this new saber design, *blocks incoming attack*, *side sabers pierce through body because of the impact*....oh snap, better put a bandage on that.


You can get the weeny out of the war, but you cannot get the war out of the weeny

Rest in peace my good old gtx 480, you deserved it

 

Thinks he has a weeny worthy of war.

The person is probably a dark side user, so they always go for weird/different saber designs. Some that don't always make sense. :lol: Like the curved ones used by Asajj Ventress or the guard shotos used by Maris Brood. And besides, those guards can prevent this: http://gfycat.com/Ev...ngFelineGrayfox
 
 
 
Oh, and a sweet wallpaper for anyone/everyone who needs it.

I would agree with that. I felt mixed and not as excited after seeing this. But I felt nearly the same after seeing the star trek trailer and loved that movie so...
