"An elegant weapon, for a more civilized age".  That's how Obi-Was described it to Luke. Today on GeekFest Rants, Carlos will take you through the collectible market of lightsabers, specifically the high end "light up" FX lightsabers. 

We'll start with the creation of the film prop by Roger Christian, to the laser glow effect, to the Kenner inflatable toy, to the plastic incarnations, and finally to the screen accurate Master Replicas and Hasbro versions.
