    I just read on theforce.net that Woolworths stores in England have banned the sale of toy lightsabers to anyone under 18 because they believe they could be mistaken for guns. Sad. Truly sad. :oops:

    Had a feeling the UK Laws would lead to this.
    Earlier in the year they banned the sale and possession of all replica swords, yes REPLICA swords. So I guess you can still carry a real one *L*
    They have already stopped the sale of prop replica guns and weapons to the UK so this is just another step.

    They all retreated to their home land. Woolworth's is still fairly big in England. As far as Phar-Mor, wow, that's where I first rented a movie. Good times.
