    I thought the US government banned lasers over 5mw so why oh why are they allowed to continue to trade?

    This is ridiculous. Now there's a laser staff with which you basically have no control over the direction of either laser. This side of shutting yourself in an empty room with no reflective surfaces or windows, how can this be used safely?

    Wicked lasers are based in China, so there are no restrictions on what they can sell ... well laser wise anyway. They just falsify the customs documents and the lasers still get in.

    As if the Arctic wasn't bad enough, at least you can keep an eye on where the beam is going, but if you've got the beam coming out of both ends ... well, you'd need to be a chameleon in order to see where both of them terminate.

    It looks like you need to pass a "test" in order to buy it. But right from the start of their "training" video there is incorrect information.

    I agree, this is idiotic. I do not understand why any company would even consider making this, and then market it as a "Sith laser", implying its intended use.
    Are we sure it isn't april fools day in China?

    If your that concerned:

    howard.roffman@lucasfilm.com

    President of Lucas Licensing.

    Just send a email.

    I have no idea how to hide/change my email identity, so some one else can do this one.

    My bet is Lucas liked the free publicity last time, but why not give the lawyers some more billable hours.

    OH EM EFF GEE!

    Everyone buy your blue diodes now. This kind of shit is GOING to hit the fan soon. I don't want to sound like a total alarmist, but when someone gets hurt, this is going to make the industry a little bit more difficult for us.

    The only slightly relieving thing here is the price. Hopefully that will do a little bit to keep this out of young and moronic hands. Not trying to slam young guys here but, I can just see the YouTube videos.... "Lite 2 joints at 1 time w/ mah lazerz!"
    Those who fail to grasp art are the ones who criticize it.

    570$ of Wicked's usual unobtainium. The problem will be the low cost clones.
