The FX Lightsaber with Removable Blade: Anakin Skywalker version features a removable polycarbonate blade with igniting/glowing with LED-powered power-up and power-down lights effects, and motion sensor controlled sound effects---power-up, power-down, idle, movement, and clash---digitally recorded from the movie. The Anakin Skywalker FX Lightsaber requires, but does not include, batteries, and is accompanied by a display stand. Requiring substantial strength and dexterity, the lightsaber, once a ceremonial weapon, was utilized primarily by the likes of Jedi and Sith warriors. Whereas lightsaber hilts were tailored according to wieldersâ?TM preference, the blade itself was comprised of plasma energy bound by a force containment field. At the outset of the Clone Wars, Anakin Skywalker, serving as apprentice to Obi-Wan Kenobi, entered into a dark, protracted rivalry with his nemesis, Asajj Ventress. Gradually becoming known as the â??Hero with No Fearâ?, he was promoted to the rank of Jedi Knight, and was assigned the Padawan Ahsoka Tano at the outset of a crucial venture to rescue Jabbaâ?TMs kidnapped son, Rotta. Despite Anakinâ?TMs recklessness and subsequent vague misgivings and intimations on the part of the Jedi Council, Skywalker was eventually given command of 501st Legion.
