YDD Saber also sells the budget lightsaber directly on Amazon as YDD LED Light Saber (Prime eligible).

What should you know about this budget sound saber? The saber is NOT officially licensed by Lucasfilm or Disney–it’s an unofficial custom saber. The lightsaber typically ranges in price from around $59-$100, depending on the vendor (wholesale pricing available). The midgrade polycarbonate blade, which is 72cm long, 1.5mm thick, and 22mm OD, is removable from aluminum alloy hilt (multiple color options). The lightsaber uses a 5W single color LED (multiple color options) and YDD Sabers’ QD Soundboard. The QD Soundboard features 1 sound font with several lightsaber sounds including: idle hum, swings sound, lockup, and clash sounds. A mute function is also included. The non-removable lithium ion battery charges with an in-hilt recharge port.
