Just to give you an idea, this is what they all look like.

General Krell, with two giant saber staffs:


Pre Vizsla, with the darksaber:


Mother Talzin, with a black magic-enhanced sword:


And the Inquisitor's saber buzz-saw:


These all look cool. Impractical for the most part, but cool. This, on the other hand...

...looks ridiculous.

Is it bad I got a power rangers vibe after seeing those images?

And personally, I'd like to see Jedis wielding uncommon sabers.

Go, go, evil Sith Lords! NA NA NA NAAAAAA!

And personally, I'd like to see Jedis wielding uncommon sabers.

I remember there being a Jedi named Corran Horn in the Expanded Universe who had a silver-bladed saber that could extend to three meters in length whenever he wanted it to. Pretty cool, and a lot more interesting than the same old blue or green sabers with a fixed length that we've seen repeatedly in the movies. As it is, the most unique saber in the movies is Mace Windu's and only because Samuel L. Jackson specifically requested that his saber be a different color from the rest. And Yoda's saber...short and green, like he is. I wonder how many hours George Lucas spent coming up with that one.

I would've made Yoda's saber completely white, as a representation of the light side, and the Emperor's saber black, like that darksaber I showed you, as a representation of the dark side. Besides the symbolism, the darksaber just looks really freakin' cool.

Wasn't there a light-saber whip in the Expanded Universe? That's actually something I'd like to see in the movies.

Actually, the lightwhip appears in the Family Guy Star Wars special...



...or not. In all seriousness, this is what it's supposed to look like:



Looks like it'd be a pain to learn how to use.

Oh, and one last lightsaber variant from The Clone Wars, which was actually issued to the good guys instead of the villains...



...whatever the hell those things are. Saber pikes? I don't know. At least the blades have a unique gold color to them.

I can't really comment on its usefulness in battle, but stylistically speaking, that looks amazing!

Just heard about the Westboro Baptist Church protesting Ireland's gay marriage legalization, and am pondering whether or not Ultron had the right idea about humanity after all.

It becomes much funnier when you realize that Ultron was only on the Internet for about five minutes before deciding to destroy humanity. If I had the processing power to absorb every shock site, flame war and 4chan post ever made in that short a timespan, I'd probably attempt mass genocide too.

To be fair, he'd probably stop rampaging the second he saw kitty videos.

Oh right...

- Getting trampled by work,
- Playing in a bunch of RPGs and GMing one (5th edition DnD, which is kind of a long story),
- Moving into a real house soon,
- Oh yeah, I got married.   ;D

It's been pretty much the same as before marriage, only now there's a set of rings, a certificate, and tax benefits.
