If you're Darth Vader, you're going to need a lightsaber to defend your evil-doers of the dark side! This sturdy plastic lightsaber has a long hilt with black vertical plastic grips, resembling Darth Vader's saber from the movies. The lightsaber also has plastic control buttons on the hilt for a more authentic appearance. (Buttons for show only.) A red plastic extension is pulled out of the inside of hilt to form the blade. With this blade extended, the lightsaber measures almost 3 feet in length. When the power switch is turned on, a bulb lights up the blade. (Requires 2 "AA" batteries, not included.) When you are done using the lightsaber, simply push the blade section back into hilt for easy storage.
