Jedi? Silver or Orange. Just because they were so rare

If I were a Sith, I would have a black blade instead of the red one. A black blade would be most interesting because instead of giving off light, it would suck light away, making the room darker than it was before. Very cool idea

Interesting. I often thought that a black blade would have worked better, for say Sidious or something. Like anti-matter, true evil. It could have a white glow, making the black of the blade seem more intense.

The official colours of Jedi and Sith (as the special crystals used only come in these colours) are blue, green, purple, yellow, and red. But hey, I guess creativity is cool. Myself I'd love to have a white blade!

To choose from an actual SW color, I'd pick red. Now, mind, I wouldn't be a Sith! I'd be the first Jedi with a red light saber blade! :wink:

There was a single Silver blade in all of Star Wars mythology. There were two or three Orange blades as well and they are the rarest colours because the crystals are so hard to find. Purple is also pretty rare. Obviously Blue and Green are the most common

Oh I see. Orange and silver! I didn't see blades in those colors in the films. They should have done more with those different colors.

They were part of the expanded universe. This was actually a discussion that a friend of mine and I had after seeing Episode 3. That's when we came up with a concept for the Black Saber

I would do purple. It's violet, and that's close to violence, which is what a lightsaber's for...
