Yeah but it wouldn't hold you up at all unless it has been fitted with repulsorlifts to prevent it impaling and sinking into the ground with each step. :{

psh, I find your lack of sources disturbing. Plasma based technology is frequently used for suspension bridges without any destructive effect.

They call antigrav in SW "repulsorfields/repulsorlifts" though. And the impaling and sinking are in reference to the blades of the lightsabers on the walker. :{

I get what you think you're saying, but the plasma tech is only used for bridges like they did in the Halo games.

Whenever you see a hovering vehicle/droid/furniture/tech, it's from repulsorlifts. :{

The frame is made of pure energy IE lightsaber blades. And the blade of a lightsaber isn't plasma in the sense of a fourth state of energy. It's only referred to as plasma by the uniformed.

And either way, lightsabers still pierce anything they touch except another lightsaber, vibroblades, or certain shielding. So the walker would still be useless as it would cut into and sink into the ground with each step. :{

Exactly, you can use the bridge plasma energy as the frame. Same plasma principle. Repulsorlift is not required.

There's no need to hover, so no need for repulsorlift. Lightsabers use a plasma blade but does not need to be charged to cause damage. Sabers cut because of that charged energy. eg troopers don't burn their legs to stumps when they walk across a plasma bridge. Check & mate again. :D

Lightsaber is a plasma-energy sword, but I am not saying the walker is a lightsaber because it wouldn't work. It can use plasma energy to support itself though.

lol No checkmates on your side pal.

The lightsaber ISN'T plasma. Why do you keep saying it is?

It's a focused beam of light/pure energy. Not "plasma".

If the light from that walker is the same plasma that you're trying to refer to, then they AREN'T LIGHTSABERS.

The two technologies aren't the same thing. Lightsabers used focused light that passes through a focusing crystal(gives it its color too).

You're only right if you're saying that the green beams aren't lightsabers and are the same plasma as the suspension bridges. That WOULD WORK.

But if they're lightsabers, the walker doesn't work and stabs the ground with each step. It also couldn't be used as a weapon for cutting. But could be used as a blunt object/bludgeon. :{
0 ups
No, the lightsaber isn't a plasma energy sword. that's how other shows like Gundam handled the laser sword idea.

The lightsaber is pure energy or light focused into a beam. But it's not plasma. It's just called that by uninformed people sometimes.

I get that you're looking at wookiepedia for your info, but you have to realize that it's been corrupted by Disney in the last few years. They changed A LOT of info since 2012. If you had been a regular on their site you'd know about this.

They've only been saying the lightsaber is plasma on THAT SITE since 2012.

The way Lucas envisioned it and the way the true canon has it, the lightsaber is a focused beam of light and only difficult to handle because the electromagnetic field needed to generate the blade caused a gyroscopic effect.

So, you're right that the walker could be the plasma tech used in the bridges, but wrong in saying that it's the same as lightsabers or that a lightsaber is plasma. :{
0 ups
lol I love how you're wrong on this fictional debate, but keep trying to make a flawed point.

Lightsaber blades are called plasma by people who don't know that they're pure energy, which is not plasma.

Lightsabers are focused beams of light, not actual plasma.

And the plasma you keep talking about(which I'm sure you're checking wookiepedia for) is for SUSPENSION BRIDGES and certain SHIELDS and BLASTERS.

ALL the vehicles in SW(including hoverchairs and ANY hovering furniture/decor) is using REPULSORLIFT tech. NOT PLASMA TECH.

The walker wouldn't work. And I'll prove it using a SW film reference.

Remember when Qui Gon stabs his blade into a door? If the blade had a field or barrier around it, it wouldn't have worked.

And mainly, why would lightsabers cut through people if the "plasma" was able of supporting weight like you think? :{
0 ups
Again, no it's not. You're confusing three technologies with three different purposes as if they all had the same purpose.

In SW, nothing hovers without repulsors or physical wings/air bladders.

The plasma you keep talking about is ONLY used in making a bridge or shield.

The lightsabers AREN'T PLASMA. They're PURE ENERGY and FOCUSED LIGHT.

And you didn't answer my questions. Why does a lightsaber cut through people/droids/doors/anything the wielder wants to cut through with the exceptions of another lightsaber/vibroblade/certain shields?

That walker would pierce the ground and sink into it each step. UNLESS it had repulsorlifts installed. :{

Yeah, it shows above, there are no links though. You mention older books that may not mention the term plasma vs newer text that overwhelming concludes they use plasma. But it's one of those logical fallacies anyway, because you are not denying plasma exists in star wars, and can be used to support someone. Job done.

Clieg Lars' and Yoda's hover chairs are repulsorlift technology. Why would the walker be any different?

Why would there be links? These are physical books. lol Dang nab it!

When do you think the word "plasma" was coined? The books I'm talking about are from the late 90's, not the dark ages.

The books also have ALWAYS mentioned that the blasters are bolts of plasma being magnetically hurled.

The "plasma bridges" are only in the last few years of true canonicity too. And GL/LF only used that idea AFTER Halo did it. They also only used that tech for bridges and walkways. The guy in the meme is CLEARLY supposed to be using a lightsaber variant that happens to look like an Earth "walker". I've sen that parody too. It's supposed to be lightsabers.

Again, the technology that the SW universe would use to keep an elderly man up like a walker or crutch, would be repulsorlift technology. That's a fact in the SW franchise. Read the books, guides, RPG Sourcebooks, Cross Sections, etc.

The plasma bridges are also HUGE energy users, repulsors use less and can be made small enough to fit the handles of that walker. The plasma tech could not. Same with a lightsaber. Too small for that technology to fit in it without a shit ton of ammo/batteries/cartridges(high energy gas).

If you want i can take pictures of the book's sections on lightsabers and make memes of them to link to ad you can view them. :{

1. A hovering walker with deathly sabers dangling underneath is pointless. It is clear that plasma can be used to support him, otherwise the picture would have no glowing frame.
2. If your claims were so valid, millions of nerds would have written about it, instead there is overwhelming evidence to show lightsabers use plasma tech
3. I know blasters use plasma, never said they didn't. We both agree there is plasma used for support in star wars.
4. You always go way off topic arguing about irrelevant shit.
5. I agree star wars wouldn't use a walking frame, but that just shows you are missing the joke.
6. Plasma bridges are huge energy users because they are BRIDGES designed to support many, not one.
7. Take all the pictures you want, but make sure they say what you claim, and that is that lightsabers do not use plasma energy.
8. You have already agreed plasma can be used to support him. You are just creating some alternate debate now.

Cute I can play that game too kid.

1. It's not hovering though. I was just pointing out that other hover furniture did and used repulsor tech.

it would be using the repulsors to not impale the ground OR to form a field around them to prevent them passing through anything.

2. No, there's only info for about 3 years of Disney's "canon". And, if you would READ those books I listed, you'd see that they never describe a lightsaber as plasma, and only blasters use plasma.

So you can say "overwhelming evidence" like that was a point, but no.

All that came AFTER Disney bought SW. So it doesn't count as canon. Their "canon" is fan fic by definition.

3. You said that older texts may not use the term plasma. That's why I mentioned that they have ALWAYS(since 77) said that blasters use plasma and that lightsabers(hence light and not plasmasabers) use focused light.

Which, again, if you would ACTUALLY READ SW SOURCES you'd know. If all you do is internet searches you don't KNOW ANYTHING.

4. What was irrelevant about any of it? The part where you're wrong I'm guessing.

5. I never said that SW wouldn't use a "walking frame" or a walker. I said it was from a parody. Misconstrue much?

6. The plasma bridges HAVE TO BE HUGE though. Because using plasma like that needs HUGE EQUIPMENT TO GENERATE IT.

Blaster bolt cartridges are each a single magazine of plasma. You'd have to constantly replace the cartridges/batteries/fuel cells/etc. on your walker for it to work.

That's why SW would simplify the machine and make them repulsors.

7. I'll post the pictures, but if I do and you still deny I'll know you're full of shit.

8. I agreed that that TECHNOLOGY could work in a way to hold him up. But Like I'm trying to tell you, SW would just use repulsors and you're still wrong.

9. YOU can't admit when you're wrong. :{

This is too easy
1. I know it's not hovering, that's the point, YOU are the only one talking about it
2. I suppose in the 3 years Disney has been in charge, they have erased all internet existence and references that support your claim and the only proof is in your bookshelf next to your dolls.
3. Again, you are claiming older books don't mention plasma in relation to lightsabers, NOT that it doesn't exist. They also don't call blasters plasmablasters. Big deal. Logic fail.
4. All of your talk beyond agreeing plasma is used for support is irrelevant.
5. You say Yoda uses a hoverchair, but you don't mention he also uses a walking stick. It's not a hoverstick, which would cause a suspension effect that is unstable.
6. You are forgetting personal energy shields can use plasma (which are pre Disney) and they are small.
7. Don't post excerpts unless they absolutely refute the current internet info, or your argument is just as flimsy as the fact you can't find any evidence for your claim on the internet.
8. Repulsors are less stable and would make the framework you see in the picture pointless, agreed?
9. I know it's not easy for you to admit defeat. Rest little child, it's late for you.

Really? Because you needed two shots at this response alone not to mention not getting what I'm trying to tell you about plasma in SW.

1. You're trying to MAKE IT LOOK like I'm going off on tangents when I simply corrected you in the beginning of all this. Keep trying on that kid.

2. lol Nice try again kid. Trolling me won't make you any less wrong.

And, you're not actually looking all over the net, you're just checking wookiepedia, like all non SW fans do to SOUND like fans.

I also already gave you the titles to two books, the DK's Visual Dictionary(1998) and the Star Wars Encyclopedia. Google those with lightsaber or plasma and READ/VIEW results.

3. I didn't say that. You did. "You mention older books that may not mention the term plasma vs newer text that overwhelming concludes they use plasma." They've always called the blaster energy plasma and the lightsaber focused light/energy but not plasma until AFTER Disney bought it.

There is a blaster called a plasma caster though. So yeah, they'd call it a plasmasaber by now.

So again you're wrong and can't admit it and have to resort to attempts at trolling me. lol

4. You're only saying that because you were wrong. Tell yourself what you want.

5. Why would I mention Yoda's cane? It is made of gimmerstick wood. It has NO tech in it. His hoverchair is called a repulsordisk.

You don't know how to argue a point do you squidward?

6. You mean a Gungan personal shield? Because the KOTOR shields were energy, not plasma.

And the "plasma" that the Gungan shields use would work. I'm glad you found a source that was from Ep. 1 too. You probably hate that. But it's still not what lightsabers use.

7. You keep CLAIMING that there's no info on the net for what I'm saying. Why lie? Is it because you're wrong maybe?

Also, Disney's "canon" is just fan fic, not true canon. You can't just add a book to the Bible for example.

8. No. Repulsors aren't less stable than the plasma shields and bridges you're talking about.

The remote that Luke trains with is a repulsorlift droid. And it has precise movements.

I noticed you keep trying to "frame" the argument to your benefit. That's not going to work on me.

9. Again, you're only trolling because you're wrong.

And I bet if I post pics from those sources you're going to deny them and say they're not new enough. Some bullshit to fool yourself into THINKING you're right.

So, other than your gungan shield, you've made no progress kid. Keep trying. :{

See? i told you, that you would react that way and deny the truth even if I posted the pics.

It's describing light and energy. On the next page for blasters it says plasma for it, it would have done the same for the LIGHTsaber.

So, it's cool that you can't admit when you;re wrong. It's just funny though. :{

LIGHT & ENERGY. You don't seem to realize the text is describing plasma. It's ok to hate Disney but it is accepted now the lightsaber has a plasma core with crystal charge. Plasma does not need to be ionized or charged and is the basis for the support bridges.
