For generations, the lightsaber has been know across the galaxies as the weapon of heroes.  Elegant, swift, lightweight and very effective in the right hands.  One could assume such a design would never be improved upon.  However, with version 2.0 we have added an amazing new feature!  Now you do not have to cry if it gets wet from a spilled Banta milk, or wipe off all that Tauntaun spit.  It is perfectly safe if you plan on visiting Otoh Gunga.  The new and improved Lightsaber 2.0 is waterproof and, it floats!

(NOTE: In contrast to most of the ideas on the M4P site, this is not a M4P original idea.  You’ll find lots of cool noodle lightsabers if you look around online, though we did not use any one specifically as an inspiration.  If you know who first came up with the idea, we would love to give them credit.)
