The World's Largest Lightsaber Fight

United Kingdom 13

An anonymous reader writes "Hundreds of Star Wars fans descended on a shopping center in Bristol, UK for what has been dubbed 'the world's largest lightsaber fight.' Bristolian Jedis brought their imitation weapons to the shopping center to take part in a 'flashmob,' a seemingly spontaneous event that was organized over the internet."

The Individual 11 has spread and is now using light sabers instead of katanas.

It was cool, but boring (1)

I think it would have been cooler if it was somewhat choreographed, instead of 100 people, have maybe 20, and have a preset order that people will die, maybe even a few lines for the characters to shout during it, have people mime out being force-choked, and have the sword fights planned out, instead of just randomly wacking their neighbor, but its all in good fun really, i doubt a huge gathering like that would be allowed in the US, because it is "simulating violence" :/
