Unless I've forgotten pythagoras, they'll fit diagonally (max size of (35.5h x 29.5w x 16d) gives a diagonal of 40.5) - I know we've managed to fit Chris's crutches in before.

And yeah - before videos, "I'm not spending $200 on a lightsaber"
After videos? "Shut up and take my money!"

The TSA allow them on as carry on luggage apparently. Whether the airline do though due to the size is another matter!

Ah - flew Air Canada last year and my case just fitted their total linear limit of 158cm. Hadn't spotted Virgin was much more generous. My dusty old calculator gives 48.8" as (external) diagonal. Case does expand so may have to resort to empirical methods (with a cutdown old broom handle) to see what fits. Not travelling until November so no doubt will find out peoples' experiences in the coming months

We really want a droid & the excitement was sky high when we saw that you can buy a backpack specifically to carry your droid!

So looks like our hand luggage include one droid in a backpack

So far DH less fussed about the lightsaber but I can see him changing his mind especially if his son gets one. I'll be interested to see how they are transported home.
