torn between two lightsabers

So Noah saw the awesome Star Wars trailer. Of course, Han Solo caught my attention. Meanwhile, what Noah noticed was the new lightsaber! Here's a screenshot of the trailer from YouTube...

And this is his first homemade attempt at it...

It's so adorable that he used minifig hands!

I already thought this was awesome. But he made another one. This time, he cut the top and bottom pieces with a nail cutter to make the middle piece.

He colored the gray piece with a silver Sharpie and the gold piece with gray & black Sharpies. Then he glued the tiny pieces together. 

That middle piece, he combined with these red staffs. The two small red rods were again cut from another long red staff.

And after all that meticulous cutting and coloring, this was his second light saber attempt. It's still lacking a black handle that he also plans to Mighty Bond to the lightsaber. 

He says he made two options of the lightsaber for me to choose from. But I'm torn! I love the adorable ingenuity of the minifig hands of the first one. But I also love the realistic look of the second. And the masterful craftsmanship that went into it. 

How in the world do I choose between the two? I'm so torn between these two lightsabers!

Noah's age when he created this: 10 years, 4 months
