Owning a real lightsaber would probably end in horrific tragedy, but fortunately, there are some safer alternatives out there. For fans of The Mandalorian, one of the more unique weapons of that series is now available at a discounted price, as SabersPro is offering its Mando replica at a steep discount. Normally a $498(!), you can take get the lightsaber for $336 with promo code USETHEFORCE.
Modeled after the legendary weapon that was said to be wielded by a Mandalorian Jedi, the Mando features a distinct shape and design that makes it unique amongst the scores of other lightsabers wielded by the Jedi order.
The blade can swap between 12 different colors at the press of a button, it can emit 16 different sound effects, has four blade lighting effects, and it even makes the trademark sound of a lightsaber when you swing it around, saving you the effort of having to make those “vwoosh” noises yourself.
Beyond that, the Mando can also take a few hard knocks as it is dueling-certified, and it’ll even make a clash effect when detecting impact. The best feature on this saber replica is its internal battery, as it comes with a 2000mAh rechargeable battery. You won’t have to worry about having a box of AA batteries on standby if you grab one of these. If you feel like splurging extra, the SN Pixel V4 and Proffie 2.2 models have also been discounted by 25%, and these versions offer extra sound effects and larger batteries.
The Darksaber appears to have a large role to play in season 3 of The Mandalorian, which starts streaming from March 1 on Disney+. First appearing in live-action Star Wars in the first season of The Mandalorian, the black-bladed lightsaber eventually came into the possession of Din Djarin and has been used to deadly effect by the bounty hunter so far.
