There are many gimmicky toys out there that attempt to emulate the signature “Star Wars” weapon, and Wicked Lasers‘ Spyder series of handheld lasers truly look the part.
Wicked recently released the Inferno and Lunar additions to its Spyder lineup, and I had a chance to fool around with them.
The units themselves resemble lightsaber handles and are made of tough, aircraft-grade aluminum. The metal is cool to the touch and has remarkable heft.
