Hello all! I will soon be looking to get a lightsaber for my Episode III Anakin costume. However, I am curious what are some Legion approved lightsabers I could buy?

Could I just simply use one of those cheap $9 Hasbro plastic lightsaber toys?

I know Ultrasabers graflex is not ROTS accurate however and I should probably steer clear of that one yes? I don't have any technical know-how so converting one myself is not an option for me.

Could I simply use a replica hilt that can clip onto my belt but has no blade?

I did have many years ago a Master Replicas Force FX 2005 Anakin lightsaber, it was amazing! Sadly the blade broke and I gave it away back in 2007.

If anyone can help me out with giving me the 411 on what ROTS Anakin lightsabers would be Legion approved I'd be most appreciative!

Hasbro toy lightsabers are absolutely not approvable to RL standards. You can convert master replicas fx sabers where the blade can be removed and dual capable.

Aha, thank you for the information. I know ultrasabers offers converted Anakin ROTS Force FX lightsabers - for a pretty penny of course. I was hoping I could possibly find a lightsaber for less than $400 though. I know on eBay the Force FX lightsabers are hugely inflated in price sadly.

You can purchase a Force FX lightsaber and conversion kit from TCSS and convert it yourself. It's not super difficult and would be more cost effective.

I like your thinking! I was at TCSS and I came across this: http://www.thecustomsabershop.com/MR-or-Hasbro-FX-Anakin-ROTS-conversion-kit-P248.aspx

I've heard in the reviews I'll need to purchase TCSS' pins as the Master Replicas ones won't fit into the replacement part, and I probably will need to paint it as well. In addition I would probably need to purchase a new lightsaber blade that is removable yes?

I do agree if I can get a good deal on a Force FX lightsaber this would be the more cost effective method.
