Get Palpatine's Lightsaber For 50% Off In This May The 4th Deal

GameStop's Star Wars Day sale includes this replica lightsaber that's steeply discounted.


May the 4th is finally here, a day when we celebrate great Star Wars mainstays like the noble and heroic Jedi Knights. But what if you think Jedi suck? Then you may just be more of a Sith person, and as such you might want to pick up a replica lightsaber of Emperor Palpatine, one of the most renowned Sith to ever stage a galaxy-wide coup. As part of its Star Wars Day celebrations, GameStop is running a Deal of the Day on Emperor Palpatine's Black Series Force FX Lightsaber, a prop replica modeled after the Darth Sidious lightsaber's appearance in Star Wars Episode III: Attack of the Clones. The discount brings it down by just over 50%, but it's only available for today.

There are also some in-store-only deals on lightsabers today, if you have a GameStop near you. The Star Wars Day sale includes the Episode III: Revenge of the Sith Count Dooku lightsaber for $145 (down from $215), the Episode II: Attack of the Clones Kit Fisto lightsaber for $145 as well, and the Clone Wars Asajj Ventress lightsaber for $130 (down from $190). You can buy them online, but you'll have to pick up in-store.
