In advance of George Lucas’ latest tinkering (the upcoming release of Star Wars movies on Blu-ray), Japanese transportation officials have turned the grab bars on Tokyo subways into lightsabers. Nerds can finally hold onto something other than … well, I’ll stop there.

Using stickers with built-in buttons and LED lights, the promo isn’t only smart, it’s also a great opportunity for stealing Star Wars memorabilia. I imagine that these stick-in ’sabers are going to disappear very quickly indeed.

You might be thinking, ‘Tokyo would do something this cool.’ The best makeover San Francisco transit vehicles have received lately is being wrapped in blue for Dell Computer. Yawn.
