So. That Star Wars trailer, huh? That was...downright awesome.

It was also, though, absolutely rammed full of general Star Wars-universe awesomeness - revamped stormtroopers, rolling droids, exotic new lightsabers and Millenium freakin' Falcon's, galore. So much so, in fact, that not all of it was necessarily to everyone's taste.

(I mean, full disclosure - my first response to the new droid was to be ever-so-slightly concerned. Now, that went away completely after seeing Oscar Isaac piloting an X-Wing, but still - there was a brief moment of doubt in there somewhere.)

But that new lightsaber? That seems to have prompted everyone, everywhere, to either instantly fall in love - or to question just what the hell that thing is, and why does it have mini-blades?

The good news, though? That questioning has mostly been pretty tongue-in-cheek - and often downright hilarious.

Like, for instance...

The Brand New, Be-Handled Lightsaber

Which normally looks a little something like this...

The big question, though? What do you guys think?


Loving the new versions of the lightsabers?
