Lightsaber Unleashed 2.1: Custom Characters and Sabers for the iPhone

So, many of us felt a a great disturbance in the force when the selection of characters included with the original Lightsaber Unleashed (formerly known as PhoneSaber) were tied to the simultaneously released Force Unleashed video game rather than to the original Star Wars movies we all (should!) know and love.

No Luke. No Yoda. No Obi-wan.

Well, Lightsaber Unleashed has just hit 2.1 and with it comes the ability to rectify this disturbance, provided you're willing to do it yourself. Not only can you make your own Lightsabers, mixing handles and colors for the perfect shade, but you can take a photo or choose from a photo album picture to make your own entire character -- complete with fields for names and bios!

Major improvement to an already geek-favorite app!

Lightsaber Unleashed 2.1: Custom Characters and Sabers for the iPhone


Yeah there's definitely something weird about the full-screen one. The center part is a solid block of white.
I'm glad they are opening it up to more options, though. Still, I wish they would just add more characters from the movies.

Still, my 10 year-old son woke up today to find out he was a Sith apprentice with an interesting back story, unique colored lightsabre and had his picture along side of the Star Wars characters. What more can you ask for?
