According to Lucasfilm it is, even though Wicked Lasers doesn’t advertise it as such. But let’s be honest, the hilt looks exactly like a lightsaber. Here’s what Lucasfilm’s General Counsel David Anderman had to say:
“It has come to our attention that a company called Wicked Lasers is selling a highly dangerous product out of Hong Kong that is designed to look like a lightsaber from Star Wars. This product is not licensed or approved by Lucasfilm in any way. We have demanded that Wicked Lasers immediately cease and desist their infringing activities. As Wicked Lasers itself admits, this product can cause serious injury to the user and other people. We strongly discourage consumers from purchasing it.”
And guess what, we’re getting one in for review. What should we do with it?!
