That's an awesome picture. I always thought Vader would look good with a blue lightsaber. And, personally, it fits his personality better than a red blade; red suits PT Anakin a lot better, IMO.

This thread is dedicated to all the myriad colours lightsabers beyond blue, red, green, and the occasional Mace Windu (yuck) purple. May the rainbow live long and prosper. Lucas' white bread vision can suck it!

Their robes are more multicolored than their sabers, yuck.

That's weird about giving wrong colored sabers after Star Wars was already out. Even in the novelization of Empire? Didn't they see Star Wars at all?

Of course one has to remind about Kenner's farmboy Luke's yellow saber which continued until the end of the line. Also Bespin Luke had a yellow saber too.

And in the time of greatest despair, there shall come a savior, and he shall be known as the Son of the Suns.

There's also Luke's new blue lightsaber from the ROTJ trailer:

The idea from ANH was that blue sabers = good guy, red sabers = bad guy. End of story, no other colors. But then Luke's blue lightsaber was almost invisible against the desert dunes in the sail barge scene, so the blade color had to be changed during post-production.

This change allowed Lucas to get away with deleting Luke's original introduction scene, in which we see Luke finishing construction of his new lightsaber. The green-colored blade revealed during the sail barge battle is instantly obvious as a newly built saber, in a way that a second blue lightsaber would not be.

“That Darth Vader, man. Sure does love eating Jedi.”

hmmm..now this is interesting. How long has this been in the EU? I remember on TFN before ROTS, there was a leaked report palpatine would have a lightsaber.  someone had the idea that it should be a black light saber and it was immediately shot down by a lot of fans and I couldn't understand why.  I thought it would have been a great idea and it seemed a little out of character that PT fans would go against it.

There apparently was a black lightsaber in The Force Unleashed video game, but it was some unlockable thing or some such and it wasn't really considered canon. Then it showed up in The Clone Wars and was canonized.

To be honest, I'm not really fond of the concept or how it was realized. The wonkiness of the physics behind "black light" aside, the thing looks like a regular sword that someone recoloured into an energy blade at the last minute.
