This is a Star Wars: The Black Series Rey (Jedi Training) Force FX Lightsaber by Hasbro. It’s one of the newer Force FX lightsabers released by Hasbro. The hilt itself is metal and blade is plastic. The plastic blade is somewhat durable, but not as sturdy as a heavy grade dueling blade. The product includes a plastic display stand, allowing you to display the lightsaber on a table or shelf or to mount the lightsaber on the wall.
Along with the other Force FX lightsabers, Hasbro describes the Rey (Jedi Training) Lightsaber as an ‘Adult Collectible’. This means it’s not officially a toy and not recommended for heavy dueling. The lightsaber uses a string blade, which contains a string of LEDs within the blade itself. The blade is also permanently attached to the hilt.
The lightsaber may be able withstand light dueling, but is not designed for rough play or heavy dueling because the LEDs within the blade could become damaged, creating a dark spot within the blade. If you’d like to use the lightsaber for heavy dueling, consider doing a Force FX lightsaber conversion.
The activation box features a sliding on/off switch. The t-track style lightsaber grips are made out of an interesting material. They seem like they’re maybe plastic, but they have a comfortable, almost soft feel to them. It’s hard to describe.
The hilt features familiar elements like: bunny ears near the emitter, glass eye on the side, and a D-ring on the bottom. Several removable stickers are attached to the hilt, talking about FCC compliance and that sort of thing. Like most lightsabers, you unscrew the pommel in order to access the battery pack.
If you purchase any Star Wars: The Black Series Force FX Lightsaber, consider that the batteries are not included. So make sure that you also have 3 AAA batteries on hand so you can use the lightsaber.
Even though there’s a D-ring on the pommel, you can’t easily wear the lightsaber because the blade is not removable from the hilt. It’s possible you could find some type of holster for the lightsaber.
The battery pack on the Force FX lightsaber is wireless and requires 3 AAA batteries. The arrow on the battery pack must match the arrow inside the hilt in order for the battery pack to connect properly to the hilt. The battery pack from one Force FX lightsaber is NOT interchangeable with another Force FX lightsaber. Also be careful, it’s somewhat common for people to misplace the battery packs since they are wireless and not attached to the hilt. Also, Hasbro does not offer replacement battery packs.
The sound font (i.e. collections of lightsaber sounds) include: turn on sound, idle hum, clash sounds, and turn off sound. The lightsaber does use a Flash on Clash feature. Each Force FX uses a distinctive set of lightsaber sounds. For example, the Kylo Ren Force FX lightsaber uses a darker, cracklier and moodier sound font than the Rey (Jedi Training) lightsaber.
The Rey (Jedi Training) Force FX lightsaber is an officially licensed product and is manufactured by Hasbro. Force FX lightsabers are popular and some of the most widely sold and available lightsabers on the market. Many major retailers sell Force FX lightsabers. I bought this particular lightsaber directly from the Hasbro Toy Shop, but Force FX lightsabers are also available on Amazon, Walmart, eBay, etc.
