my freind offered to help me create my first lightsaber, but we got off starting a discussion on led lights for it. From my limited knowledge i was talking about one like this: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:LED-3W-Rebel-Luxeon.jpg, because of tcss. however he was aiming more along the lines of this: http://energyboomer.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451dceb69e2010536a737d7970b-pi. neither of us can figure out whos right so... umm... help Razz?

you are correct. read about it here.

your friend's LED looks more like the kind you would use to form an LED "ladder" inside the blade (like the way hasbro does it).

your LED looks more like the kind you would use, if you wanted a single LED in the hilt to shine out like a flashlight into a hollow blade (like the way TCSS does it).
