Sorry brand new here. Hope I’m now posting in right category.
Hi all! I want to buy my boyfriend a light saber for Christmas. He is on this forum so I hope he doesn’t figure out who I am. :p I would love your recommendations on which one to purchase. I would like to keep the price under $300. Thank you!
do you think this is a good gift or should I choose something else?

If he doesn't have any lightsabers you should probably go with either the red Darth Vader lightsaber or the blue Luke Skywalker/Rey lightsaber. Those are safe choices unless you happen to know his favorite character. There are many choices these days with regard to various lightsabers for various characters.

I would say a nice lightsaber replica is an excellent gift for a Star Wars fan. I have 2 myself and I enjoy them very much. I usually take them out during Halloween to have fun with them.

For the price and quality you can't go wrong with the Hasbro Black Series Force FX lightsabers. Although for a similar price Disney has a "Deluxe" lightsaber line that may be of similar quality and price. The Disney Deluxe Lightsaber features a removable blade whereas the Hasbro Force FX lightsaber does not. I haven't handled the Disney lightsaber personally. Maybe you can see for yourself at your local Disney store in the mall. You might be able to see some of the Hasbro Force FX sabers at ThinkGeek or Gamestop so you can see what they are like.

Disney Deluxe Darth Vader Lightsaber

Disney Deluxe Rey (aka Luke Skywalker) Lightsaber

Hasbro Force FX Rey(Luke Skywalker) lightsaber

You can shop around and see what current lightsabers are available and their prices at places like Amazon, Gamestop, Best Buy, ThinkGeek, Disney Store, etc.

I have 3 of the Black Series sabers, I love them! Hoping to get the full line eventually as I find them on sale.
