You want a lightsaber. Don’t try to deny it, you know you do. There’s only one question left: Are you going to buy one or make one? It should come as no surprise whatsoever that there is a vibrant community of DIY lightsaber makers. The Star Wars franchise has been around longer than many of its fans have been alive. It has had tons of time to build an incredible following. You can pop onto Etsy or eBay or any number of personal sites and have a custom saber made just for you.
This is the part that really intrigues me though. There are stores that focus specifically on selling parts for custom lightsabers. Note that this is “stores” plural. There isn’t one store, but several. There’s a thriving and healthy niche market just for light saber parts!
So, if you’re looking to make your ultimate custom saber, here are a few lightsaber stores (that is so fun to say!) that you should check out:
The Custom Saber shop has a huge selection of parts all the way down the correct screws to achieve exactly the look you want.
Ultra Sabers has a few variations available, including some nice custom accessories that aren’t available elsewhere.
Parks Sabers has a decent selection of parts, though their designs opt to not include sound.
