    Only if the design of these blasters makes complete logical sense.

    Read this as: when it's my ass on the line, I want a weapon that makes sense.

    So does everyone else. That's why this is dumb.

    Is Ataturk a sock for archetypal_yuppie or the other way around?

    Why no complaints about storm troopers wearing useless armor if you're also complaining about the light saber?

    How did the empire take control of the galaxy with an army of such piss poor shots? Why did Obi-Wan allow himself to die without atleast trying to kill Vader first? How did Luke get so well trained by the start of ROTJ? Nothing makes sense!!! :butbut:

    No, the cross-saber is just really fucking stupid looking. It's different just for the sake of being different.

    It's meant, as is his robe, to envoke the crusades. A night with his broadsword on a "holy" mission. I thought this was obvious.

    wtf Ataturk
    Almost every fucking sword in history had some sort of handguard, if it offered no protection they would not have it LMAO

    None had handguards that cut backwards. None had a core that was made of material that could easily be cut by an opponent's weapon.

    I was going to post the same thing as Ataturk. We've seen lightsaber's handles cut through before, and now we must suddenly assume that in this (crude) design that couldn't happen.

    ^ we don't know, so why assume anything, maybe you can cut through maybe don't, either way better than lightsaber with no handguard at all

    also only a retard would hit himself with handle of his own sword, so no it won't cut backwards

    there is so much stupid shit in star wars and you nitpick at stuff that makes more sense than the original lightsaber SMH

    no a retard would design Darth Mauls sword which makes no sense -still it's in movie about Force, Jedi and aliens so I don't even mind it
    this sword has best practical design of star wars swords so far so idk why it's been object of such criticism, makes no sense

    I really hope you let this light saber design ruin the movie for you. :)
