Before Kylo Ren has even swung his ridiculous lightsaber, before Han and Chewie return home, and before the Force finally Awakens, all manners of incredible fan made content have spilled all over the web; from fan art to parody trailers and much, much more.
But, in my honest opinion, I think one team of Star Wars superfans has stepped up their homage game to infinite levels and is creating and selling variations on Kylo Ren's aforementioned cross-guard lightsaber, and many more! And, man... they are utterly stunning.
Coming straight outta Portland, Oregon, Saberforge is proud enough to boast itself as the maker of "the brightest and most affordable high end custom sabers on the market," for all of your cosplay/bragging/ultimate Christmas present needs.
Ranging from $49 all the way up to $534 - the more expensive ones are super classy and jam packed with hi-tech goods - imagine how boss you'll look whipping one of these bad boys out from under your robe at The Force Awakens red carpet extravaganza!
Go on, have a look:

I mean, look at it...
It truly is a thing of beauty.
