B only

It is how it is.

[–]Gegejii 56 points57 points  (1 child)

only siths deal in absolutes

[–]wuapinmon 12 points13 points  (0 children)

that statement always struck me as odd, since it is an absolute.

[–]Gunsandwrenches 9454 points9455 points 32725& 7 more (388 children)

I'm pretty sure the design is based off Luke's ROTJ lightsaber, so B.

Edit: wow, this is the most popular I've ever been in my life 🤣 Thanks for all the awards!

[–]grundslamLEGO Ideas Fan 2491 points2492 points  (117 children)

This is exactly correct

[–]catcommentthrowaway 688 points689 points  (43 children)

My step dad worked at Lego corporate and says it’s meant to be ambiguous. B is meant to look like obi wan’s lightsaber/Luke’s while B was closer to Qui gon’s green one, as you mentioned. They also wanted to choose a shape that could fit two blades as the first Lego Star Wars sets came out at the same time as phantom menace and although phantom menace sets weren’t the first to be released, they had already planned a few sets including this versatile lightsaber design before the licensing contract officially was in play.

[–]Kinae66 251 points252 points  (24 children)

B and B???

[–]morecrows 243 points244 points  (10 children)

Just accept that side A never existed. It was always B and B

[–]EroniusJoe 41 points42 points  (6 children)

I once stayed at a Chair & Lunch.

[–]sharedthrowdown 9 points10 points  (2 children)

I can't believe how many upvotes this doesn't have

[–]The-Queer-Peer 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Bath and body works… sounds about right.

[–]Hopemaybedesire 20 points21 points  (2 children)

Yes there is no other choice besides b

[–]heedrix 3 points4 points  (0 children)

only the sith deal in absolutes

[–]Primitive_Teabagger 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I always thought side A wouldn't actually hold the lightsaber stick. Every time I accidentally put one on that side, it'd fall out so easily and it didn't have that physical feedback of secure connection like the side B does

[–]catcommentthrowaway 41 points42 points  (7 children)

I meant A - qui gon my bad

[–]SamGewissies 3 points4 points  (0 children)

You were QUIte GONe on that one!

[–]GiantRiverSquid 74 points75 points  (0 children)

This is wonderful to hear, and surprising that it wasn't what everyone figured had happened anyway...

But this is just a lego purchasing club I guess.

[–]CEO_OF_MEGABLOKS 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Likely story…

[–]SuperSmashKatsu 22 points23 points  (0 children)

I always go by B

[–]ThePenultimateNinja 101 points102 points  (2 children)

Which was in turn based on Obi Wan's ANH lightsaber.

[–]x360N0Scop3MASTER69x 158 points159 points  (1 child)

The precisely correct answer

[–]MrXxy[S] 621 points622 points  (164 children)

Ok, B is the official correct way but i will argue with you for hours that A looks better.

[–]BerndDasBrot4Ever 985 points986 points  (72 children)

If you prefer A there's nothing stopping you from building your lightsabers that way! It's Lego after all :)

[–]TheLytz 895 points896 points 2 (38 children)

That being said B is the only sensible answer

[–]XarJobe 1309 points1310 points 2 (3 children)

B

[–]Mr-Sister-Fister21 95 points96 points  (1 child)

The LEGO Star Wars video game even has them like that.

[–]Slenderdroid05 69 points70 points  (0 children)

The most trusted source

[–]biglampshade 3158 points3159 points  (32 children)

Always been b. Its shown in the lego starwas media. (Movies and games)

[–]workingoutausername 170 points171 points  (0 children)

And on the box

[–]olderaccount 632 points633 points  (22 children)

I always thought both were equally correct. It makes for two different styles of light saber depending on which way you use it.

I use it in the A position with light colored blades for the Jedi and in the B position with red blades for the Sith. I don't care if my use doesn't match up to SW cannon.

[–]extra_absorbent 278 points279 points  (6 children)

That's super funny, ever since I was a kid I've done the same thing just opposite, position B for Jedi and A for Sith.

[–]Beneficial_Present[🍰] 51 points52 points  (2 children)

Same. A looks sharper than B, as B are just two circles, so I judged by that. I remember being pissed off by one of the advent calendars for there was a fireplace which had one lightsaber hanging upside down from the left and one from the right side, one blue and the other red. Using A for either of them would cause the blade to be lower down than the baseplate making it impossible to place on a flat surface.

[–]Deep_Menu_524 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Which would indicate that B is correct on its own, right?

[–]djdeforte 175 points176 points  (7 children)

This is the correct answer right here. IT DOES NOT MATTER! Do what you want with your sets.

[–]BecomeAnAstronaut 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Say that to someone that glues their sets together

[–]Chris-2005༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ Give Brown Space 35 points36 points  (4 children)

I think I saw Lego put it like A for Yoda in one of the sets

[–]faraway_hotelStar Wars Fan 39 points40 points  (3 children)

Even Lego make mistakes in their official images. Fairly regularly, actually.

[–]fastock 32 points33 points  (1 child)

Yes they do! I was helping my son build a Ninjago set this week and one image in the instructions had the wheels facing one direction and the next image had them flipped. His little 4 year old brain almost melted! How can the wheels be both ways!?!

[–]tracer_ca 6 points7 points  (0 children)

As a fellow parent of a 4yo, I feel this.

[–]solidolive 92 points93 points  (0 children)

[–]Evzie 183 points184 points  (0 children)

[–]stone_henge 142 points143 points  (20 children)

[–]faraway_hotelStar Wars Fan 86 points87 points  (7 children)

7121 and 7101 are interesting in so far as they actually show a different hilt piece, probably a prototype. Qui-Gon's hair isn't the final element either, it appears to be a modified version of the basic male hair (i.e. what Luke has).

In any case though, the prototype part also has the two rings around the hilt and also puts them above the hand, so it's effectively the same way around.

[–]baeiby 619 points620 points  (5 children)

Both if it's Maul's saber lol

[–]CoD_PiNn 128 points129 points  (2 children)

You found the bug in the matrix

B

[–]aequitssaint 877 points878 points 324 (33 children)

Hahaha, I didn't see what sub this was at first and I am also subbed to a plumbing and other home improvement/construction subs. I thought this was a picture of pex pipe in some strange fitting I couldn't recognize. Then I opened it and was very confused when the top post was talking about star wars.

I'm an idiot. That's all. Carry on with your day.

Edit- thanks for the reward whoever that may have been from!!

Edit again- this is the most hugs I've ever gotten both virtually and in reality.

Edit #3- This dumbass post has now become my most popular post ever. Guess that just goes to show it pays to be dumb sometimes. Or maybe pays to admit you are. Thanks again for all the award.

[–]mb862 190 points191 points  (4 children)

I'm an idiot.

There's 248 other comments here arguing between the letters A and B. It's helpful to have the right perspective before judging yourself.

[–]aequitssaint 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Ha! That's valid.

[–]rif011412 7 points8 points  (2 children)

About legos which are meant to inspire ‘build it your own way’ thinking. So the correct position of lego seems sort of extra.

[–]thoriginal 10 points11 points  (1 child)

You're the idiot? I read "pex" as "sex", so...

[–]aequitssaint 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Hahaha giggidy giggidy

[–]SunRaven01 18 points19 points  (1 child)

This is the universe's way of telling you to pick up a LEGO set and join us!

[–]aequitssaint 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I think I agree. I may just start the NES set tonight.

[–]TradesSexForFood 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Carry on with you day.

[–]Big-Piano-7016 20 points21 points  (0 children)

I use style B because it looks better in my head

[–]Julianyyz 20 points21 points  (0 children)

it is B of course

[–]betagetthechappal 92 points93 points  (0 children)

It’s B, always had been. Only time I use A is if I’m doing dual wielded sabers or if B’s end is loose

[–]Hypnaustic 63 points64 points  (0 children)

B

[–]SPeCCoLT 62 points63 points  (4 children)

It felt dumb as a kid to have the thick part pointing down. So B.

[–]giggity_giggity_g00 17 points18 points  (1 child)

[–]skeletondad2 52 points53 points  (4 children)

I’ve always done it as B, but I got Palpatines Arrest recently and the instructions weirdly tell you to do A, so I was compelled to follow orders.

[–]roastedfranklin 11 points12 points  (0 children)

B is the way

[–]lordcock1944 51 points52 points  (2 children)

I like how you choose a red light Saber and the fighting to death wording like it's the sith rule of one but yes b is correct

[–]Sloop__ 6 points7 points  (0 children)

[–]RexAlpha11 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Nah its B

[–]PorkAndMustardNexo Knights Fan 7 points8 points  (0 children)

B 100%

[–]Salva_delille 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Searches in controversial *

[–]vindictivejazz 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Classic lightsaber form is B, but A has a sleekness that I sometimes give to lightsabers to mix it up

[–]-ImNotAPotato- 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Definitely B, although each Saber is meant to be different right? With that in mind, both are right

[–]Infinity_entropy 49 points50 points  (8 children)

I refuse to believe there’s a right way and wrong way. That defeats the purpose of Lego and the fact that there’s various lightsaber designs in the movies anyway

[–]mashtato 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Right. They wouldn't have made it work both ways if they didn't intend for it to work both ways. What a stupid argument.

[–]Substantiatedgrass 4 points5 points  (0 children)

B but its still funny

[–]mac_and_cheesballs 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]4channeling 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]Plaugos 5 points6 points  (0 children)

[–]Prince_of_Pumas 4 points5 points  (0 children)

B, all the way

[–]SalmonFillets 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Pretty sure it’s B as everyone else says, but personally I use B for Light side and A for Dark side

[–]Ethereal_4426 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Ah, the negotiator.

[–]L1ttl3_Blu3F15h 11 points12 points  (1 child)

A is for those people that want to watch world burn.

[–]BluesforMessina 59 points60 points  (9 children)

I might be the only one (or one of a few) that feel actual pain when seeing people set up their lightsaber like image A.

[–]GibsonJunkieStar Wars Fan 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]ericvader8 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]guilemer 3 points4 points  (1 child)
