I've known about the "Force Beam" lightsaber -- more info at the swca -- but I can't find any information on this "Light Beam" variation.
My first thought was that they changed the name from "Force" to "Light" to avoid law suits. But now I'm wondering if this one might have come first -- the line "The Force is With You" and the much more SW-style logo seem like giant targets for Lucas' legal guns. So now I'm just confused.
The Light Beam saber is manufactured by the Moon-Lite Co., of Los Angeles, CA. The Force Beam is "distributed" by Jack A. Levin & Associates, also of Los Angeles. The zip codes for both companies is one digit off -- so I'm guessing they're pretty close to each other.
Has anyone seen this variation before? Any details re: which came first or anything like that? (Joe_Y, I'm lookin' at you, buddy... I couldn't find one in your limelight, though I did see the Force Beam.)
And most importantly... does anyone have an extra Force- or Light Beam blade they can sell me?
