As I said, if these fugly axes are acceptable, why not go the whole hog and throw in buster swords?
You're looking into this way too much. Just see it for what it is, a jovial vanity item offered to those who want it.

With that said though, I'd love a Light-Buster Sword, would be sweet.

The amount of jedis using axes will propably be no more than the amount of jedi wielding vibroswords.

Gamorian guards in RotJ had axes. Big creatures using axes work for me. It also wouldn't shock me to see a Sith pick up an axe, turn his evil, yellow eyes to an enemy, and grins like a mad man at the thought of the barbaric slaughter about to happen.

And I'm quite certain there will be no throwing the axe down after the fight and calling the weapon "Uncivilized."

That's the only issue I see with the axes. Do the vibroblades deflect ranged attacks as well currently?

Enemies shooting at my Jedi on Tython before they obtained their first real lightsaber were deflecting blaster bolts with their vibroblades.

There is lore, and there is lore. The universe established by the first three movies (and let's face it, they're the only ones that can be taken seriously) would not have Jedis with anything but lightsabres.

But meh, if you don't see it and it has to be reiterated, there's hardly any point being anything but whimsical.

So the only thing I'd really like to know is when we'll be getting a sparkling pony mount.

Thats an actual force power, its called Force Deflection. Also for blocking lightsabers without a lightsaber, there is also Force Weapon.

The thing is they look really stupid in your hand. I bought one on the pts, and my sent holds it about mid handle instead of at the bottom. It just looks really dumb.
