It's always been canon to the both of us. And I see your point on the naming.

"Have yourself a good day" must feel really good after a real solid point that "Ooh, it was named similarly even though it literally doesn't qualify in any way as on besides a skinny blade."

That, to me, is basically forfeiting the point, no need to get haughty on top of it. Simple question dude.

You're damn right Lightsabers don't make exhaust. What kind of moron thinks that?
IMO, saying that if they don't call it a lightsaber it'll be fine is a bit off. It IS a lightsaber. Perhaps a poorly designed Crossguard Lightsaber, but it's still a lightsaber.
I suppose you have a point in that the EU was cancelled... but Disney owns the rights to those ideas too, so maybe some of them will find their way into the new trilogy.

Regardless, it's refreshing to have a disagreement with someone on funnyjunk and not be berated about it. I like you Lucjenson.

Well my argument is that its not a saber, its a sword. This is a lightsword, not a lightsaber. A saber has a crossguard at 45 degrees, not 90. A sword has a crossguard at 90 degrees. But yeah, its nice to find someone who doesn't flame up at me thinking I'm just stuck in the old days of Star Wars.

I don't think Disney owns the rights to the EU because it was actually written by foreign creators. But then, I've never really had to question the legitimacy of the EU 'cause to me its always been canon.

As a fan of the setting, I will defend this saber, largely because it's not the piece of shit most people make it out to be. Yes, I would have angled the emitters upward a bit to prevent the obvious flaws it has. However, All these people saying 'Oh hurr-durr, cut the emitters off' have no idea the various substances that can be used to create a lightsaber. A simple Phrik alloy would make all but the most deliberate and weighted of attacks useless against those emitters.
Certainly the little bits that could be cut would easily be able to resist the first several attacks against them, and by aiming for the side emitters, you leave yourself open to a counterattack.
This lightsaber's main advantage is the same as the Saberstaff, unfamiliarity. Someone sees the crossguard and think 'How could he use those to kill me? Better keep track of them...'. However, unlike the saberstaff, it doesn't have the drawbacks of limiting movement to long sweeping motions. Instead, the Sith just has to keep the Crossguards from hitting him. And hell, maybe he's wearing Cortosis or Phrik alloy gauntlets to keep his forearms safe.

Believe me I've considered those materials and the involvement of a fencers gauntlet in the equation of whether or not I can accept this new lightsaber. And if they don't call it a lightsaber I will be able to, someday, accept it because I love Star Wars too much not to accept all of its flaws. But if they do call it lightsaber it will forever be my Jar-Jar Binks of the new trilogy because it won't, at all, be a lightsaber. I feel by destroying the EU and a lot of canon lore they have actually stifled their ability to receive we the older fans because we know of these materials. But don't forget that Phrik and Cortosis don't exist outside of the movies and therefore don't exist in these new ones, either. I'm just glad you didn't try and defend it by claiming it was an exhaust port. Lightsabers don't create exhaust.

I'm so sick of people defending this piece of shit lightsaber like its the greatest thing since sliced cheese and even the original poster of that Tumblr post defending it told me himself that he knows little of Star Wars and NOTHING of lightsabers, or swords, or sword combat for that matter. Legit blows my mind that I'm still seeing his post show up on my dash. People are stupid and know nothing of Star Wars. What can I expect? :\

Tell me more about how Napoleonic sabres are wielded with two hands. Or about how these lightsabers were "meant to be" anything other than what George Lucas envisioned when he first started writing the film. Seriously, you're talking out of your arse.
User avatar #413 - robinwilliamson (12/01/2014) [-]
What do Lightsabers have in common with the curved, hanguarded, single crossguard Napoleonic Sabre besides a skinny blade?

Go say the word "lightsaber" to yourself out loud if it wasn't obvious the first hundred times you read the word. Have yourself a good day.

i wanna see evidence of you being 6'8 so many people are claiming to be really tall here on fj but that's REALLY tall
#2 to #1 - lucjenson (01/31/2013) [-]
Don't know how I can show evidence of it, really. I don't even own a camera. I really am 6'8", though. Not something I lie about - though most people do assume it's a lie even meeting me in person because as you said, it is a rare height.
User avatar #3 to #2 - sheepysquirrel (01/31/2013) [-]
I'm sure you know someone with a phone. Have them take a photo standing by you in a house near an archway, send it to your email, black your face (if you want) in paint or something and post it. Just have a shoe on head as evidence. :D
