Why do I have to choose?
This is like choosing between snicker doodle cake with brown sugar icing and Kahlua cake with coffee butter cream …

I chose the saber. But only because the other girl chose the wand and was trying to tell me that there was no contest. Um, No. There is a contest. That is quite possibly the toughest decision most of us would have to make.

I mean… I’m so accident prone, it would probably be like that time Ron hit himself with his spell.
It could potentially be a disaster.
I guess a light saber would be more for people who have control issues. I mean… a saber is more like a computer, it will do what you want it to do, right? What you put in is what you get out? A wand isn’t always like that?

See, to me, a saber is a powerful weapon, by itself. The wand by itself, is just a stick really. So to me, the saber wins there.
Although I too, am accident prone. I can see me slicing off my own limbs easily with one sneeze and drop of a saber…

Well we might just need one of the Wii wrist bands in case we accidently drop it?
Also, since Jedi’s build their own, we would probably have to include a pressure system that if you release the grip, the light saber automatically retracts? Is that the right word? Turns off???
But you know what I mean, like on treadmills where if you fall over you won’t get your skin ground off by the tread moving, it turns it off if you pull on that stupid little string you clip to yourself.
Or in my case, you get your arm stuck in it and repeatedly turn the treadmill off anyway, plug it back in and start again in some weird spastic way of trying to “increase my endurance”

Good call on the retracting pressure system. I would also like to include using some never before seen colors. Maybe a fuchsia? I mean Mace Windu already took purple. Or a rainbow saber?!?!?!?!? 😀
I dig the auto retract, that way if we have to throw the saber into the air while we flip over a nemesis and then catch it, it can retract in the air that automatically pop back when we land and it is back in our hands! That would be pretty awesome. See how much more fun sabers are over wands. I mean, with a wand I guess we could carve a pretty one and slap some paint on it.

… I think I just had a horrifying image of a hello kitty light saber..
Wait does one exist yet??
Now that I’ve had time to think this over though… if we’re using a saber though, we’re Jedis, who went through Jedi training… and maybe we won’t BE that clumsy?
If it’s anything like the Kinect game training, I am SADLY LACKING and apparently very incompetent as a Jedi.

THAT GAME IS OUT FOR KINNECT?!?!??!?!?!!?!?!?!?

dammit is sure is.
You have a good point. We can use the force to overcome our clumsiness, so no need to even worry…

You should play it…. Nothing will scar you more than battling Han Solo to a rewritten version of Jason Derulo
