Well i've had my Qui-Gon Jinn saber sence it came out in 99 i've had for a long time it was my first lightsaber the green blade is rear now bot do to the blades wight the hilt just below the part where you would twist it to take the Bats out cracked its a wide crack i tryed once to glue it back to gehter with Plastic Model Glue but it cracked again and i was wondering if there is anyway to repair it i saw of a lightsaber repair kit but its long gone at least i think it is

Oh man, that's harsh. I'm afraid it's gone. Suggestion: Buy another one, I saw some at KB a few months back that were super cheap, got one at a flea market type thing for $4. It'd be cheaper to get a new one, which is fully strong, than to buy an expensive glue to repair this one which would be weakened by the damage.

Thats sucks Paul-Kenobi. JediTricks is right though, buy another one. They're not that expensive. There's not too good of a way to fix one of the lightsabers once they're cracked.

Ep 2 will not see release of the QGJ electronic saber, nor any green-bladed electronic sabers (at least, not in what's been shown so far). Try your local Big Lots/Pic-n-Sav stores, KB, KB Toyworx (I bet they'll have 'em big-time), any place that has discount toys. Even try your Wal-Marts' and TRUs' discount areas, or post a request in the SSG classifieds forum.

My son's broke like that to. They are just not made for anything but small play. If you get to rough with them they brake. As everyone has told you your best bet is to buy another.
