This is an official replica of the lightsaber used by Darth Vader in Star Wars: A New Hope™. The glowing, bright red blade ignites with realistic power-up and power-down light effects. The authentic lightsaber sound effects have been digitally recorded from the movie with four motion sensor controlled sounds: power-up, idle hum, clash & power-down. The durable metal hilt looks and feels like a real lightsaber and the sturdy blade is detachable for different display options. Includes a specially designed display base and an attachable belt clip to hold the hilt. Requires 3 “AAA” batteries (not included).
