I'm curious: what's everybody's favorite hilt?

I've always liked Luke's second lightsaber and Obi-wan's second (they both look similar)
I also like Zayne Carrick's second lightsaber hilt.
Ooh I also like Qui-gon's.

Lol I could go on about hilts all day long. EYE CANDY!

What do you guys think?

I like Mace Windu's, Exar Kun's, Plo Koon's, and Kit Fisto's hilts.

We fight for justice because justice is the fundamental bedrock of civilization: an unjust civilization is built upon sand. It does not long survive a storm." - Mace Windu

I like Plo Koon's and Mace Windu's Lightsaber hilts. But, I must say, I like Count Dooku's the most. Just the way he uses the lightsaber is so awesome, not to mention the curved hilt is sweet.

Proooobably Carrick's second one. I found it utterly elegant & menacing.

It was a very sexy handle wasn't it?

Mace Windu had a great one, as did Qui-Gon Jinn.

Ooooh, nice thread - can people post some pictures up too? I like to take a look at these fancy hilts

I quite like Darth Vader's hilt - its got a classic Sith Warrior feel to it.

I also thought I'd mention Darth Malgus' hilt - just because it looks interesting, kinda a mixture between a typical warriors hilt, and an ancient inquisitor hilt.

I also like Sidious' hilt - very classy

But my favourite, like Aurbere, has got to be Count Dooku's hilt - its just so awesome and he wields it like a boss

Awww, and look at Yoda's little lil lightsaber

Definitely the Old Republic hilt from SWG. Curved, golden hilt... on my ex's account, I decked all her equipment out... she used an old republic hilt with unlayered battle armor (meaning 6000 to all protections, next best thing to a master jedi cloak) in Mk3 Crusader armor (gold) with matching cape, ... looked menacing as hell.

Drede Shadow... I miss ya, darling

Also, the Jinsu Razor... sweet hilt, very simple yet sooo... attractive.

here's a lightsaber gallery from Galaxies

None of them look comfortable but Dooku's hilt looks like it'd have a good grip on it. I saw one on Wookiepedia once where the energy cascaded off to the side a bit to form a handguard, that's probably my favorite.

If I was a jedi i'd definitely have to get a custom grip.

For me, it has to be Rahm Kota's hilt from TFU2 - I love the used look, and the leather bindings give it a less shiney and more organic and functional look.

Look it up, I don't have a link right now...
