You can use Effectslab’s neon light engine for the actual lightsabers, for the sparks you could use a combination of the particle engine and stock footage.

It looks like they have also added a rather nice "heat haze" effect, which could be done with some particles, object masks, and a displacement map filter in EL Pro or VL.
