This week on Backyard FX we show you how to build a real lightsaber. Erik Beck unearths the original lightsaber blueprints from the special effects creator for Star Wars. And now we show you how to buy parts to a real lightsaber so you can have your own custom Star Wars weapon.

In the test film you'll see our rotoscoping technique on how to complete the effect with some simple computer animation.
