UPDATE:Gizmodo reports that Lucasfilm has issued a cease and desist order to Wicked Lasers in regards to the Spyder III Arctic laser, along with the following press release:
SAN FRANCISCO--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Earlier this week, Wicked Lasers released photos and information regarding the "Pro Arctic Laser," a product designed to resemble the famous lightsaber hilt from the Star Wars Saga. Described by Wicked Lasers as "the most dangerous laser ever created," the product description goes on to say that "extremely dangerous is an understatement."
Lucasfilm's General Counsel David Anderman had this response:
?It has come to our attention that a company called Wicked Lasers is selling a highly dangerous product out of Hong Kong that is designed to look like a lightsaber from Star Wars. This product is not licensed or approved by Lucasfilm in any way. We have demanded that Wicked Lasers immediately cease and desist their infringing activities. As Wicked Lasers itself admits, this product can cause serious injury to the user and other people. We strongly discourage consumers from purchasing it.?
