So Gosh Darn Badaradicool by Noben So Gosh Darn Badaradicool by Noben
I finally got to see the trailer for episode 7. I was impressed..  to a point. This summarizes my opinion about that point of no return.

Now that I've seen the movie, I think they managed to use the silly-looking guard to a pretty alright dramatic use. Might just be me, tho.

Spoilerish talk.

I've gotten to see it too, thankfully.

I'll give it credit where it's due, it was used well for what it had, and that's fine.  But something still doesn't set right with me.  As someone that watched the originals on VCR til the tapes nearly broke, the light saber was a thing of beauty to me, and it was taken overboard with the prequels. For me, a very hardcore fan of the movies themselves, it takes only a slight deviation from the norm to be enough to snag my attention.  I admit it does play into the character that possessed it, showing his one-up-man-ship nature, comparing himself to his idol, but I still feel it was too much.

I think that just having the blade's effect waver as it did was enough to set it apart, that aspect is honestly so damn cool, and it's sound effect also made it just different enough to get the point across: It's so darn cool.  But.. .The extra hilt bits were this kind of.. Well my reaction to the trailer was basically instantly seeing the blade come out and I mentally went "Hey, that's cool.." and then the extras popped out the sides and then I suddenly blurted out a laugh.  I'm not sure if that's what they were going for but that's how it went.

I have to agree, the cross guard looks ridiculous.  The only explanation for it that I have even remotely liked is that it actually isn't meant to be a cross guard at all.  I've heard that that saber design is actually an older model and that the two side "blades" are actually two exhaust ports for allowing the excess energy to escape.  It's the only explanation for them that I like.
The concept for a Sith lord as an antique collector sounds pretty radical honestly (even though I still really hate the saber design).  As usual, I'll give the new movie a chance to win me over, but I'm not exactly hopeful at this point.

I liked every bit of the trailer. However if you are going to voice objections doing so in a very funny manner is the best way. So thanks for the laugh.

Laughing at it is what I did at first.  I don't dislike it because of the "too many saber blades" and the like, I just disdain it for the fact that I see it as training wheels if you need a guard while other heroes/villains like Obi-wan/Darth Vader just needed a regular ol' blade. To me that's real skill with a light saber.  Sure he's a Sith with his red blade and dark robedness so not playing by the "rules" is a given, but I still stand by my opinion on it when it comes to being impressed. ^^

To me, it's sort of cool (Darth Maul with extra blade), but not badass cool (Obi-wan vs General Grievous)

You got a point. Then again if the baddie became a Sith on his own he would've had to figure out sword fighting and light saber construction on his own. That would explain the "training wheels". BTW radical needs to used more often.

If it's not just the lightsabre that seems a little... *ahem*.. 'lulzy', wait until you see the parodies.………

..and the rest of the entire search list:…

The best way to go rolling on people... with a black cloak and eyeliner-- ohwait... training wheels... for the first time learners.

I heard that the little side blades are actually an exhaust vent of some sort. Since the Sith are largely gone now, so too are their resources. This is apparently a more primitive but likely just as deadly model of lightsaber.

I have so far enjoyed the arguments about the new light saber more than the saber its self. 
SHARK-008 Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yeah I try to think they bring a new 'some kind' of lightsaber design in every movies since the first trilogy, but... I still think this lightsaber have useless stuffs on it. ^^;

CrossGuard saber's aren't exactly new. The've show up a few times in the comics.
Noben Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2014   Digital Artist
I don't read the comics, I've had zero access and time to invest in any extended media outside of the movies, the original UNTOUCHED trilogy specifically. Either way, it still doesn't change my perception of having a cross guard on a lightsaber: Training Wheels.

Oh, it was even more stupid in the comics. It only had one bar on it, making it an L-Saber.
Merc-King Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2014
The comic and the game are canon though. They are more like protector since most of the injury happened to light saber users are losing their hand. 
Noben Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2014   Digital Artist
I don't care. ^^  This still doesn't change my opinion of it. Pic says it all. Training wheels, no matter how you explain it.

I know, many don't tough, especially peoples who only see the movies.
CannonCrasher Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2014  Student Filmographer
So it's always in training mode I see.
