Have you ever wondered which lightsaber you would have ended up with, if you had happened to actually exist within the Star Wars universe? I mean, it's an important question - a Jedi (or Sith)'s lightsaber often seems to define their very character, and in some cases can even give them something like legendary status.

So, when an Imgur user recently posted a series of images of each of the Star Wars prequels leading characters' lightsabers, it's safe to say that I was pretty...enthusiastic.

After all, there aren't many things in life more awesome than Qui-Gon Jinn's lightsaber, and I will gladly duel anyone who says any different. Just so long as we can do it with lightsabers.

So, what better place to start than...

Qui-Gon Jinn's Classical 'Saber

I may or may not still have my childhood (extendable) replica lying around somewhere...

Although, of course, there's also:

Obi Wan's Streamlined Version

Which has a sort of blaster-like quality to it...

Yoda's Small But Deadly Blade

Which fits him pretty perfectly...

Mace Windu's Awesome Purple One

Awesome purple-ness not pictured...

Anakin's Starship-Shaped Version

Featuring an extra strength hilt, for added Sith-conversion prowess...

Count Dooku's Awesomely Curvy Offering

You know he's evil, because it's unconventional...

Darth Sidious' Antique-Looking 'Saber

You know he's old school, because it looks Steam-Punk...

And, of course, the greatest of them all (sorry Qui-Gon, but it's probably true)...

Darth Maul's Double-Sided Badassery

Because YES.

Now, though, the biggest question of all...

Poll
