Yup.

Rainbow lightsabers.

Republic Wins, because the dark side cannot tolerate rainbow power. I should know.

I are jedi consular pony, my racial is the stare.
You sir, win this thread. AWESOME story.

Oh.. and.. while it might look out of place... my dual blade Shadow would love to have:
1. A different color for each side
2. A way to throw a switch and change the length ala Luke's Jedi students,who I can't remember thier name, (or was it Jacen?), but did it by swapping out the crystal in the blade to alter the length and color.

You can also get the crystal if you are imperial and PVP:
Crystals (March 29)
Advanced Black-Blue War Hero’s Crystal (+41 expertise) 150k credits, 1950 Warzone Commendations

eta- I would totally use a rainbow saber. My guild leader might have an aneurysm but Sian would be happy.

Thats like saying you want a rainbow brite unicorn mount, and a masterchief outfit, while calling yourself a Jedi.

The black lightsabers simply dont exist in any form in the Star Wars universe, hence a fan that wont touch them is most likely a bigger star wars fan then the guy/gal who would.
Every day for you must be a waking nightmare.

Maybe you should do some research.. Pre Vizsla wielded a black bladed darksaber in the clone wars.. How are people going to talk about how they know so much about star wars and than be completely off base.. Fail.

It does NOT look even remotely like a "simple" lightsaber with a black core. (wiki article says it was originally going to just be a regular vibrosword, but Lucas didn't want lightsabers to be able to be blocked by regular weapons that look like swords, so it was made special... 'course, Unless I'm missing something lightsabers are getting blocked by vibroswords all the time in TOR (and KOTOR, for that matter), as well as similar weapons in the books.

I do have to agree with many of the other posters. The black core lightsabers just look silly/out of place.

(P.S. In the clone war episode, does said darksaber every actually "extend"? or is it really just a black sword with a white glow outline?)
It is called a Darksaber.. Keyword Saber. Lightsaber keyword Saber. Dark vs Light. Yes it is a Jedi weapon it is a darksaber.. Did I repeat it enough for you to comprehend.. Thank You and you have yourself a great day.

Wrong, they exist in this game, therefore they ARE part of the Star Wars universe. (btw, did you really just compare wanting a somewhat differently colored lightsaber than appears in the films to wanting things from totally unrelated IP's? REALLY? Exagerate much? Two can play at that game)

Oh wait, you're one of those this is canon that isn't sort of fan I'll bet (as if that really matter to the guy who was just asking how to get something he wanted and who most likely doesn't give a flying flip about your self apointed title as keeper of the list of who is a true Star Wars fan and who isn't).

Okay, I'll play your game Mr canon. SWTOR isn't canon because SW games aren't canon (as I saw someone in another thread claim yesterday) I guess that means Revan isn't canon because he only exists in Bioware games.

Attention! Attention! Attention! Everyone! Could I have your attention please? It's recently been pointed out that Revan is in fact NOT Star Wars canon, therefore as a public service I'd like to remind all TRUE Star Wars fans to make sure they aren't wearing or owning, or having any of their companions wear, any Revan gear. TRUE Star Wars fans, in order to demonstrate their superior knowledge, loyalty and overall betterness, are encouraged to avoid playing the Order of Revanites storyline on Drumond Kass or running The Foundry flashpoint mission, as these bits of content deal with the unseemly and unworthy non canon Revan character. To be on the safe side, George Lucas himself has recently advised me that serious fans should also avoid obtaining HK-51 as a companion, since he is similarly non canon and also carries the double black mark of having been created by a non canon character. As a final reminder, TRUE Star Wars fans are encouraged to bathe exclusively in Windex glass cleaner not for reasons relating to canon or non canon issues, but because Lucas himself and a number of (I'm told) high ranking Disney executives find it entertaining to think that you do so. Carry on, or should I say Live long and prosper?
Don't make me get all green perpendicular up in this beeotch.
Yeah.
I said it.

If there was a way to have a moddable training saber on my jugg, you bet your butt I would, and I'd pvp constantly.

For the lulz.

What a bunch of bullcrap. Apparently they exist in the game and everybody is able to wear them so choke on it. Besides,what do you think you get for being a bigger star wars fan? What,you're staying true to the colors? Get bent son,your theory is crap and has nothing to do with the game,and yes I do want a rainbow brite unicorn mount and maybe a masterchief outfit,who are you to judge/question me? Eff the eff off you *****
