I cut Light Scythe out because I predicted it'd probably result in a landslide vote ⌐_⌐
|#2 - Posted by: Howitz (Member) on 02-21-2009 at 23:25|
i like the axe
|#3 - Posted by: A_L_I_E_N (Member) on 02-22-2009 at 00:10|
Light bow/Crossbow... cause it may be similar to blasters.
|#4 - Posted by: dynablade223 (Member) on 02-22-2009 at 00:37|
Arrow of light, anyone?
|#5 - Posted by: SweetPunishment (Staff) on 02-22-2009 at 05:10|
I still think it's a great idea! Lightsaber scythe... Reminds me of starcraft...
|#6 - Posted by: Death_Knight_Killer (Member) on 02-22-2009 at 05:47|

|#9 - Posted by: LeaNikkaya (Member) on 02-22-2009 at 07:45|
Saberchucks... Only for the people who know what they're doing. because it's really easy to cut off some of your own limbs...
|#10 - Posted by: StupidJedi (Member) on 02-22-2009 at 12:11|
is the sabertrout a fish shaped lightsaber???:confused:
|#11 - Re: #10 - Posted by: Averus_Retruthan (Staff) on 02-22-2009 at 12:32|
Yes....fear it and fear it well.
|#12 - #1 (to Averus, and I picked Trident.) - Posted by: Chris91 (Member) on 02-22-2009 at 12:36|
I agree with you, Averus. Just ask yourself: How many people here who've seen Star Wars ever saw anything related to Mobile Suit Gundam? My vote for the trident is similarly inspired...
...What comes to mind when I imagine it is basically a drastically-downsized version of the twin beam trident seen in the Gundam Wing anime that spun off from Mobile Suit Gundam, and the franchise has a few more types of beam weaponry. I think one of the mechs from Mobile Suit Gundam beat Darth Maul and even Exar Kun to using twin beam/lightsabers by over a decade, in the real world.
Anyway, I'd imagine a light-trident (or a twin light-trident) would work similarly to an electrostaff, but with wide/short lightsaber blades at the tips (or one tip, if not a twin-bladed version), yet more susceptible to a lightsaber destroying it by striking the staff. But less of a chance of cutting yourself up when slicing up battledroids or anything else. Just don't expect to cut thick doors with it.
|#13 - you forgot - Posted by: Sniper_Shot (Member) on 02-22-2009 at 12:47|
you forgot saber gloves. Put them on and channel force energy to cover them in saber energy. Great for martial artists.
|#14 - Posted by: Cyber_Commando (Member) on 02-22-2009 at 13:36|
Saber sai would be my choice.
|#15 - Posted by: BELLUM_GERERE (Member) on 02-22-2009 at 14:46|
i lightwhip! :o
|#16 - Posted by: Happy_Russia (Member) on 02-22-2009 at 16:01|
A Klingon bat'leth would make a perfect saber weapon. :D
|#17 - come now. you guys are crazy.... - Posted by: MJAY (Member) on 02-23-2009 at 08:28|
...because the Sabertrout rules ALL!!
Can you imagine? A 20-pounder sabertrout..!! In all of its glowing red glory!!
Can't tell me NONE of these people go fishing... :lol:
|#18 - Posted by: madcatmach2 (Member) on 02-23-2009 at 11:41|
definitely going to go with saber chucks because they are so close to my favorite fighter's sword chucks
|#19 - Monty Python (Ni!) - Posted by: Caelum (Member) on 02-24-2009 at 09:17|
How about a lightsaber herring? We can cut down trees with it & sing the lumberjack song whilst going "Ni!" at shrubbery salesmen.
DISCLAIMER: This message may or may not make any sense whatsoever depending on if you're a Monty Python addict like me :p
|#20 - Light Flail - Posted by: SkinnedDogThing32 (Member) on 02-24-2009 at 11:27|
I have no idea why so few people go for light flail...:confused:

|#24 - Posted by: darth_fatso (Member) on 02-25-2009 at 12:33|
What about the light whip?
|#25 - Re: #24 - Posted by: Averus_Retruthan (Staff) on 02-26-2009 at 20:01|
Light whips were already invented. I'm essentially choosing weapons that don't appear in the SW series.
|#26 - Posted by: d00min8r (Member) on 02-27-2009 at 01:19|
personally, I would've liked a 8-pointed lightshuriken, or a circular lightsaw even better, (working on creating both)
|#27 - Posted by: strifehun (Member) on 02-27-2009 at 14:04|
