Mark Hamill's response to a fan-made Jedi lightsaber is adorable



Mark Hamill at a Star Wars convention? Busy guy. But when he was given a custom-made lightsaber with a button that triggers The Joker's laugh, you couldn't miss his heartfelt gratitude.

This happened at a Star Wars Celebration in London last weekend.

The faux saber came from Hampton's Hand-Crafted LED Sabers, a California business.

Why the non-Star Wars Joker reference? Hamill, 64, played The Joker in "Batman: The Animated Series" and other Batman animated stories. Why the lightsaber? He also portrayed Luke Skywalker in the "Star Wars" movies.

"An elegant weapon for a more civilized age," indeed.
