    Green, Blue, Red, Orange and Yellow (for a character caught between the Light and Dark Sides of the Force).

    Green if it's Luke, Blue if it's not.

    Or go full out and have a lightsaber that constantly changes color based off the person's mood or side of the force. :p

    Freedon Nadd had a golden shoto. Golden lightsaber with silver hilt!

    I think they will stay with the usual colors. However, if any other color appears I think it will be yellow (just a hunch). It would be cool if the new villain has a new saber color. Suppose the villain does not adhere to the old sith traditions. The villain could come from a part of the galaxy where crystal colors are different, allowing for new colors to be introduced (perhaps silver or even black---fanboy dream).

    Since I think Luke wil be the main Jedi, I say green.

    Um, what about ROTS, in which a good guy had a purple blade, and a bad guy had a blue blade?

    So if the formula does not always stay the same in ROTS, why should it stay the same in the Sequel Trilogy?

    Isn't that like saying lightsabers have been done waaaay too many times. Lightsabers are green, blue or red, purple was a terrible idea, which Rick McCallum probably told GL was great.

    The purple lightsaber was a mistake and was idiotic. The blue on blue was OK in the sense that the battle was meant to represent brother against brother and that the fight was wrong. It served a purpose as visual storytelling.

    But overall, I stand by my opinion.

    If it's yellow let it mellow, if it's brown flush it down.

    Cyan and Magenta would look cool.

    Also, rainbow colored :rolleyes:

    I think they'll just keep it real and go with blue or green. It's kind of an established thing.

    I think we need more colors. Get some yellows in there for the good guys. But i think I would add another color for the baddies - and I think that would be Orange.

    I used to want to see more colors, but I'm cool with the blue/green/red system. Maybe someone could have an unusual color like Mace's purple blade. The only other color I could really see fitting in is yellow but I think anything not blue/green/red should be rare.

    It's not going to make or break a film for me, though.

    I suppose I could compromise this far... But no further. I prefer to stay RGB, but if a few rare unique sabers exist (like Mace's purple lightsaber), I could accept that. Let's just not over do it.

    A white blade would be cool, perhaps for a very innocent/pure character. Maybe for a female? Luke's original lightsaber in ANH was almost white, was it not?

    I also think a silver/gray lightsaber for a bad guy would be nice, even if visually uninteresting. :)

    Still a fan of orange


    If they're going to stick with the big three, I wouldn't mind more variations in terms of shade. Luke's original/Anakin's was cyan for a bit, and a darker/emerald green would be nice.

    But, my personal ideal would be for the protagonist to wield two orange sabers that are a bit shorter in length than normal.

    Blue. In fact I wish they had never introduced the different lightsaber colors. I liked the idea of blue vs red. good vs evil.

    I agree 100%. It's too bad BLUE didn't lol good in the Tatooine sun.
