Force FX Lightsaber Conversions

One of the most requested services I offer is the conversion of Hasbro and Master Replicas Force FX lightsabers to in-hilt LED configuration. This upgrade facilitates a removable blade and noticeably increases the brightness of the hilt. For this service, I have four different offerings, but I also accept special requests for different soundboards and the like.

These prices apply to all Master Replicas and Hasbro sabers except the following models, which due to being more involved conversions, are subject to additional cost:

  • 2002 Master Replicas Anakin Skywalker AOTC
  • 2003 Master Replicas Darth Vader ANH
  • 2003 Master Replicas Luke Skywalker ROTJ
  • 2015 Hasbro Kylo Ren

Arms of Ilum no longer offers basic Force FX LED conversions. The work involved is as much or more than total overhauls, especially considering Master Replicas and Hasbro have both made changes to their soundboard designs over the years. If you’re looking to simply swap the LED string blade with an in-hilt LED, I can point you in the direction of sabersmiths who offer the service.
