Light Sword

A Lightsaber is a weapon used in the Star Wars line. Lightsabers consist of two pieces; the hilt and the blade. Most lightsabers use Part 23306 for the hilt. However, Asajj Ventress and Darth Tyranus use special pieces for their oddly shaped hilts. Lightsabers are most often used by Jedi, Sith, or other Force-sensitive beings. Their blades are made of solid light, and they are powered by Kiaburr Force crystals. Usually, someone would only carry one lightsaber, although General Grievous often fights with four lighsabers (even though he is not force sensitive)- one in each of his hands. Darth Maul,Savage Opress, and Satele Shan each have a double-bladed lightsaber; Pong Krell uses two double-bladed lightsabers. Some, like Ventress, carry two single-bladed lightsabers.



In the years before 2005, all lightsaber hilts were made with a chrome finish. Between then and 2008, they were mostly medium stone grey. Since 2008, some sets have had flat grey hilts while others have a metallic look. Chrome is still used some, but it is very rare. Various other colors also appeared as hilts. Palpatine's lightsaber's hilt in 9526 Palpatine's Arrest was the first to be Warm Gold, and Jek-14's was the first ever in white. Black has also been used.


Lightsaber blade colours are rather varied. Blue and green are the most common among Jedi; Sith use red. The Force guides a person to the crystal they should use in their weapon, and the Force decides the colour. Until around 2012, green lightsabers were Transparent Neon Green. Then, the LEGO Group began using Transparent Bright Green for green blades. Darksabers use Black blades.

Lightsaber Colours



Minifigures that use Lightsabers


Sith and Dark Side Supporters


  • In the Star Wars galaxy, other colours (such as yellow) have been used for lightsabers, though no minifigures have been made with yellow blades.
  • Though most who use lightsabers are Force-sensitive, some (like General Grievous) are not. They don't have the Force; they are just skilled swordsmen.
  • A small number of sets included minifigures with light-up lightsabers. The figures were one piece- The on/off button was located atop the head, and the wires led down through the right arm to a special type of hand, which contained a light bulb.
