How frickin retarded Star Wars is over 30 years old, so what if they label it a Lightsabre. This is where infringement laws need fixing, crap like this stunt that Lucasfilms has hampered societies progression because of money ....we would be a more advanced society if there was less greed to make a buck off someone one else's hard work ....
lol... Of course sales triple... no body had ever even heard of the company until LucasArts made a fuss about it! lol

Ya know... I was really hoping for an other austin powers movie lol
Probably someone at Lucas Arts sent the letter for 2 reasons one..it was very similar and people are stupid better cover our ass so some dumb parent isn't on CNN complaining that Lucas arts sells toys that blind toddlers. Also ya a little publicity put star wars on something and you can sell it, maybe a little planned publicity and a nod to wicked lasers that Lucas is flatted in some way by this product.
What annoyed me is that the people selling the laser never themselves called it a lightsaber.
It was online bloggers and news sites saying "IN REAL LIFE LIGHTSABER FOR SALE!"
Still I don't have much sympathy for wicked lasers. Awful company! The provided safety glasses for the pro arctic don't provide much protection. They don't respond to peoples emails and their products are of low quality.
So yes, it would have been good to see the death of wicked lasers but I didn't support the lawsuit simply because it was frivolous. Good on LucasFilm for dropping the lawsuit and highlighting the dangers this product is.
It is not a lightsaber, it is not a toy. It is a laser so powerful even looking at reflection of the dot on a white wall will cause irreversible eye damage.
It's only for laser enthusiasts who are well familiar with the proper safety measures and handling of a device so powerful. Not for your average guy who wants a real life light saber
