Luke Skywalker blue lightsaber
Lightsaber week continues with the Luke Skywalker Force FX Lightsaber replica, the godfather of all lightsabers. Back in 77 when Episode IV: A New Hope opened, audiences all over the world was awestruck the first time Luke Skywalker ignited a lightsaber handed to him by Obi-Wan Kenobi. The lightsaber and its iconic humming sound has since became the most coveted sci-fi weapon of all times.

Luke Skywalker blue lightsaber Episode IV A New Hope
Luke Skywalker was played by Mark Hamill in the original Star Wars trilogy Episode IV: A New Hope, Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. Hamill also lent his voice for The Joker in Batman: The Animated Series. On 11th Jan 1977, a day before he was supposed to shoot one of the final scenes in Episode IV: A New Hope, Hamill was involved in a car accident and left with a fractured nose and left cheekbone. During his absence for surgery, a replacement double was used in the landspeeder pickup scenes. Later Hamill had a scar along his upper lip from the accident and this was clearly visible In Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. The movie creatively attributed the scar to Luke's encounter with the wampa on the 5th planet in Hoth system.

The Luke Skywalker Force FX Lightsaberby Master Replicas is an enhanced glowing blue blade with realistic power-up and power-down light effects, thanks to a string of 64 super-bright LEDs that ignite sequentially inside the blade. Similar to the lightsaber replicas featured in previous posts, the Luke Skywalker FX lightsaber also incorporates motion-sensor controlled sound effects digitally recorded from the movie.

There are a total of 3 built-in motion-sensors to achieve better sensitivity, with 2 dedicated to detect movement while the remaining 1 sensor to detect impact on the blade. Both the sensor and digitally recorded sound effects work together to replicate an actual lightsaber feel during power-up, idling, swinging, clashing and power-down action. You'll need to source three AAA batteries because they are not included with the lightsaber.
