Lego Star Wars Wiki

The four different lightsaber colors

The Lego® Lightsaber is based on the weapon from the Star Wars universe. The lightsaber was a distinctive weapon used by the Jedi and the Sith. Lego® made four different colored lightsabers, blue, green, purple and red. The purple lightsaber is made for only one minifigure, Mace Windu. The hilt also comes in five colors; a chrome silver, dull-chrome silver, plain gray, plain white, and a gold hilt. The only set with a gold hilt is 9526 Palpatine's Arrest, wielded by Palpatine. The early sets all contained the chrome silver version, but the dull chrome hilt is becoming more frequent in new sets. This is probably because it is easier and cheaper to produce. Recently, Lego® started including chrome dark gray lightsaber handles in new sets.

Lego® also made light-up lightsabers for some of the minifigures from Episode III. These lightsabers light-up when the minifigures head is pressed down and they have a 3 hour battery life. Minifigures with light-up lightsabers, could not be taken apart and were one piece, unless parts were added to their heads. However, this function was removed from minifigures, and replaced by normal lightsabers.
