If you ever wanted to work with lightsabers, you could soon realize your dream.

SaberForge has plans to hire 30 to help with increased demand that is expected as the excitement for the newest “Star Wars” film builds.

The Kickstarter darling is approaching $1 million in sales.

SaberForge raised $800,000 on Kickstarter after starting with a $100,000 goal.

The company’s Adaptive Saber Parts “are an easy to use modular system that lets anyone construct their very own movie quality custom saber,” leaders wrote during the campaign. “We have lowered the barrier to entry, now you don’t need expensive machinery, soldering equipment, or years of prop building experience to make your very own custom saber, all you need is your imagination.”
