Ein *echtes* Lichtschwert und unser Livestream

Disney hat heute das erste Mal eine völlig neue Art Lichtschwerter vorgestellt, die Klinge fährt nämlich komplett aus dem Griff aus und leuchtet!

Viel kann man dem Teaser noch nicht entnehmen, außer, dass es das Lichtschwert ersteinmal nur auf den Disney Cruise Lines, also dem Disney Kreuzfahrtbetrieb, zu sehen ist.

Auf Twitter wird die Technik jedoch bereits heiß diskutiert.

Den vierten Mai dieses Jahr nehmen wir als Anlass eine neue Livestreamserie zu starten. Dienstags um 20 Uhr setzen sich Markus und Tim zusammen, um alles rund um das Team, den Shop, Lichtschwerter und Star Wars allgemein zu diskutieren.

15th anniversary of Saberproject and RISE OF THE LAST INTERN Story Teaser

Last year was a completely different year for us and currently it doesn't look like much will change anytime soon. We miss events and team meetings.

We were able to work on our big project we have been working on for almost two years. Originally, RISE OF THE LAST INTERN, the sequel to THE INTERN AWAKENS, was supposed to be finished last year.

Filming in October/November 2019 was also the last team project for us together, we never thought we would not be able to see each other for over a year after that.

Since we are planning a theatrical premiere to celebrate with the crew that made this film possible in the first place, we are pushing the release of the film to an as yet undetermined date in 2021 and taking more time to finish the sequel to our most successful YouTube video.

So today, to celebrate Saberproject's 15th anniversary, we present another teaser, which gives a glimpse into the story of RISE OF THE LAST INTERN

We are working again with Only Sound , who are composing the music of the movie and welcome kyberphonic as a partner to provide movie-accurate lightsaber sounds.

Finally, other stars of the film make their first appearance, as a large crew of club members, friends and even family members were involved in the realization of this heartfelt project.

We celebrate with you 15 years of Saberproject and present the story teaser for RISE OF THE LAST INTERN

We don't reveal everything yet of course and will have some surprises in store for you.

Hasbro Ahsoka Tano Elite Force FX angekündigt

A few weeks ago after the Palpatine FX-Lightsaber has been announced, the next lightsaber awaits: The Ahsoka Tano Elite Force FX-Lightsaber. As part of the Black Series from Hasbro this lightsaber comes with a removable crystal chamber and a triple color change from blue to green and green-yellow. The latter color is seems to be inspired by Ahsoka's second hilt, which she received during The Clone Wars TV-series. However, the matching hilt has not been announced yet.

Soon this FX-Lightsaber will be available for pre-order at our partner Toy-Palace

Hasbro Palpatine FX-lightsaber announced

In Hasbro's "Pulse" you get regularly informed about new products. The newest addition is the Emperor Palpatine Force FX Elite Lightsaber, which will be released at the beginning of next year.

Technically the lightsaber seems to be based on the previous FX lightsabers of the Hasbro Black Series, but it also has new features like the "molten glow cutting effect" or the "force lightning effect". Regarding the first the tip of the blade lights up and simulates a cutting effect and for the second the whole blade changes color in the style of Palpatine's force lightning.

Additional to picutes Hasbro released a short commercial as well as a short hands on presentation and explanation. Watch the excerpt from the live stream of Hasbro Pulse here:


Rise of the Last Intern – Teaser

Vor fast fünf Jahren haben wir unseren Kurzfilm THE INTERN AWAKENS veröffentlicht, welches mit heute mit über vier Millionen Views auf YouTube unser erfolgreichstes Video ist.

Die Handlung um den Praktikanten (Intern), welcher im Toy Palace Lager unterwegs und plötzlich auf Jedi und Sith stößt, ist eine einfache. Das große Augenmerk ist darauf ausgelegt Lichtschwertkämpfe zu zeigen.

Lange haben wir uns überlegt, ob und wie wir die Geschichte fortsetzen wollen und was die Neuerungen sein könnten.

Nun können wir es offiziell ankündigen, denn die Geschichte wird auf aufregende Weise fortgesetzt und wird einige Überraschungen beinhalten. Neben Anspielungen auf die Star Wars Filme werden wir auch auf andere Fanwelten Bezug nehmen, es geht also ab ins Multiversum.

Doch keine Sorge, der Hauptaspekt liegt immer noch auf Lichtschwertern.

Zusammen mit Toy Palace präsentieren wir euch den ersten Teaser zu
RISE OF THE LAST INTERN

Wir wünschen euch ein frohes neues Jahr und freuen euch bald mehr zum Film zeigen zu können, welcher sich jetzt in Produktion befindet!

Lightsaber-duels are a sport now!

Fencing with the lightsaber - now possible in France

You may have already read it on social media: Lightsaber dueling is now a recognized sport in France. The official French Fencing Federation (FFE) is now combining the elegant weapon of a far, far away galaxy with classic fencing and is adding this form of fencing to its repertoire as a new discipline. The fencing is done with lightsaber replicas in which the polycarbonate blade is illuminated by LEDs - just as we know it.

But this unusual combination will probably not make it to the next Olympic Games in Tokyo, and we will probably not see any lightsabers in Paris in 2024 either.

But with all the attention this message is receiving at the moment, the fencing sport behind the lightsaber remains clearly recognizable: similar to other groups that have already tried to combine it with Kendo. The difference for fencing is that it is now official recognized.

Lightsaber fighting exists as an art form, as a choreographed performance as you could see it especially in episodes I to III. The lightsaber fight lives from its dynamics, its speed and its elegance, in this respect it is closer to dancing than to sword fighting. The form recognized by the FFE is hardly comparable with the lightsaber duels we know and love so much.

Time will tell to what extent Star Wars fans in France will be able to enjoy it, but let us ask heretical: does fencing really need the lightsaber in addition to foil, sabre and sword?
