Before I resort to kit bashing, is anyone aware a manufacturer that produces 28mm scale lightsabers? I've got a couple Frostgrave plastic wizards that would make good Jedis and just looking for a suitable weapon.

Did my best to search Shapeways but that site is a pain to search!!!

Given that every lightsaber seems to be unique, would it be cheating to just use swords and and paint them in extravagantly bright glossy colors after having matted the figure?

I'd get some of that neon-colored, clear rod from Tap Plastics, and just paint the handle end suitably, before/after gluing into the figures' hands.

I've used Thresher01's technique for Star Wars miniatures (I'm at work, or I'd post a picture). They have red, blue and green rod -- or did when I made my lightsabers.

Toothpick (the round kind) and knife, then paint.

With every lightsaber being different, I'd just buy either some toothpicks or fluorescent plastic rod and cut down a sword in hand.

Star Wars Heroclicks. They are everywhere. You can get a lot of them for 50 cents. Cut the hand off, glue it on your figure. Done

Hasselfree also has plastic rod.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I'll try toothpicks first and then customising plastic weapons before I look at commercial options.

All ypu really need is a plastic rod of the right diameter and sprues from plastic kits do have varying thicknesses, depending on what they were supporting. And it costs you nothing, as you're bound to have some frames knocking about.
