I have bough this Starwars Rey staff and I'm flying from Germany (Frankfurt) to Singapore. Would it be a problem when I check in the item in my luggage at Frankfurt airport?

Singapore have some strict rules on prohibited items too (http://www.customs.gov.sg/individuals/going-through-customs/arrival/prohibited-and-controlled-goods). Would my staff be allowed through the customs at the airport?

What about lightsabers? Would something like this (http://www.ultraforcesabers.com/hasbro/force_fx_lightsabers/Vader_ANH_Black_Series) gets pass the Singapore and Germany customs?

  • I don't quite see which item on the prohibited or controlled goods list the staff may enter into. Given that it's plastic and made of 3 pieces, I doubt it could really be considered a weapon. Note that toy versions of guns, pistols and revolvers need authorisation, but they say nothing about toy versions of other weapons. – jcaron Mar 18 '16 at 12:38
  • I'm relocating to Singapore and i've half a suitcase load of legos too, I'm not sure whether I've to pay taxes for those (they're for my personal collection, not for sale). – alvas Mar 18 '16 at 12:43

    Slightly off-topic, but I'm curious as to why Amazon put that staff in the "men's costume accessories" section. Clearly they haven't seen the film... – user56reinstatemonica8 Mar 18 '16 at 13:35
  • @user568458 note that Amazon categorization is absolutely unreliable. For eg twitter.com/chx/status/659908490853355521 and twitter.com/chx/status/616175554157371392 twitter.com/chx/status/616155090710212609 are just a few I stumbled upon over the last year. – chx Mar 18 '16 at 14:19

    Just tell them it's part of your Jedi religion. – TheMathemagician Mar 18 '16 at 16:08

It is highly unlikely that you will encounter difficulty with travelling from Germany to Singapore with this.

I don't contemplate any reasonable reading of the prohibited or controlled goods import lists that would preclude you from carrying your lightsaber.

I also don't see any reasonable reading of German regulations that would prevent you from checking in your lightsaber.
