    lightsaber gimmicks

    What do you think the next "gimmick" will be? I always felt the first surprise was Luke's ROTJ saber being green. It was just one of those cool little curve balls that caught me off guard when I saw it in the theater at 6 years old. Maul's saber was an obvious choice, and Dooku's a little less expected. What's left to do? Hopefully nothing, in terms of lightsaber design at least. It really annoyed me a few years back when you'd hear rumors of Jedi wielding things like lightsaber axes and such in Episode 2. Or the one about Dooku's blade being shaped like a schimitar. The lightsaber is a sword plain and simple, with little room for variation in my opinion (other than color, hilt design, etc.).

    Personally, I'd like to see lightsabers used in different ways (like the whole using two at once thing). I think it be really cool to expand on the throwing technique Vader used in ROTJ. If we get a chance to see Anakin/Vader actually taking on many Jedi at once (which I don't think we'll get to see, but maybe), it'd be interesting to see him use his lightsaber in that way. It would be a nice visual way to show that tapping into the dark side lets someone do some pretty wild stuff. I don't mean that it should fly around like a boomerang or anything. But it'd be cool to see the look on an opponents face when he does it (Yikes! No Jedi has ever done that before!) Anyone ever play Masters of Teras Kasi for Playstation? Remember that full-metered force move Luke and Vader can use? That's what I'm talking about. Just fight normally and then out of nowhere, let it go.

    I'd think it be cool to have a sber come up like a police club, from the arm, so they can still use the hand, or from above the knuckle for the same reason. At one time i thought of a whip but that woould be crazy, then i had the idea for a thing like Xena caries but only a small part is the handle and mostly the blade but i don't know about that or the whip. Let me know.

    Hmmm...Zena and Star Wars. I just had a brilliant idea. Let Sam Raimi direct SW3. Well, no. Maybe not so brilliant. Bruce Campbell would have to be in it. And that would be just too cool for words.

    Maybe instead of getting a mechno-hand, Anakin could have a lightsaber chainsaw attatched to his wrist ala Ash from Army of Darkness. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart.

    Well a saber throw would be cool ala Jedi Knight 2. Is that what you meant with Vader in ROTJ Seanmcfripp? I haven't seen ROTJ in a while so this could be what you are talking about.

    I think the lightsaber "gimmick" will be Obi-Wan having his ANH saber.

    Vader did throw his saber in ROTJ, but unlike JK2, it only lasted a second, didn't spin, and didn't fly back into Vader's hand.

    I think the "gimmick" will be more satisfying fights!

    Well, the most Jedi we've seen fighting a Sith lord have been two, Obi Wan and Qui Gonn versus Maul. I think it'd be great to see Vader take on five or six Jedi at a time, maybe while finishing off the council.

    Imagine Plo Koon, Ki Adi Mundi, Kit Fisto, Adi Gallia, Aayala Secura, and other no-name Jedi attacking together, all at once, and Vader tossing them back and striking htem down like they're nothing.

    It'd be...different!

    Maybe we'll see the funky Jedi Council members like Oppo, Evan Piell, Adi, Depa, etc. fighting, lighting dueling. Perhaps they'll even bring back Yaddle and Yarael for it.

    What as? Statues, decaying corpses, or stuffed lightsaber testing dummies? They are dead LTBasker, face it and move on. It's not healthy to deny such things.
