Description

Not as clumsy as a blaster; an elegant weapon, for a more civilized age—lightsabers are the agents of the Force, the chosen weapon of both the Jedi and the Sith. This new and updated version of Star Wars Lightsabers: A Guide to Weapons of the Force explores these powerful weapons from tip to hilt, diving into the stories that surround them and showcasing some of the most fascinating examples.

Study the galaxy’s most notable lightsabers and the masters who wielded them, from Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi, to Rey and Kylo Ren. Every featured lightsaber includes a close-up of its one-of-a-kind hilt, a photo of the Jedi or Sith master in action. Each page is filled with detailed statistics, fascinating insights, and little-known facts.

Along with stories and details, this updated version of Star Wars Lightsabers features key foldout pages that let you get even closer and a pull-out poster featuring notable lightsaber hilts. From the most famous lightsabers to the most notable lightsabers duels in galactic history, this otherworldly volume captures it all.
