You'll be able to get Master Yoda's Star Wars lightsaber for yourself before long, as a Black Series Force FX Elite replica was just revealed.

Announced via the final Mando Mania (where new products from the Mando-verse are unveiled every Tuesday) and described as the "most realistic" yet, this new Star Wars lightsaber recreates the Jedi Master's weapon with an effects-heavy blade to go with a display hilt. If predecessors like the Darth Vader Force FX Elite Lightsaber are anything to go by, it should put other high-end Star Wars gifts to shame thanks to progressive ignition, blaster deflection, duel, and wall-cutting effects. It's available to pre-order for $249.99 direct from Hasbro Pulse, or £269.99 from Zavvi from in the UK (Brits can also get it from Hasbro Pulse for the same price if they'd prefer).

Wondering what it has to do with the Mandalorian and Mando Mania? Well, this is probably based on the version shown to Grogu by Luke Skywalker in The Book of Boba Fett. That's our best guess, anyway.

This addition to the range brings all the new bells and whistles that have been unveiled recently, including the 'dual' effect first introduced in the Obi-Wan Kenobi Force FX Elite Lightsaber. That's because it packs an advanced blade capable of gradual and targeted lighting, allowing it to offer gradual ignition as per the movies, 'blaster deflection' as if you're batting away laser bolts, and 'wall-cutting' where the sword tip glows red and white to simulate carving through doors or floors.

As usual, the blade is removable to leave a screen-accurate (and metal) display hilt that can be shown off on a themed stand. Also featured is a Kyber crystal hidden within, as per last year's Darth Vader model.

It's due to land by Spring 2024, and is available to pre-order for $249.99 direct from Hasbro Pulse. If you're based in the UK, you can pick it up for £269.99 from Zavvi (or via Hasbro Pulse for the same price).
