We’re thrilled to be able to bring you a Fantha Tracks exclusive, a spread from the forthcoming Insight Editions book Star Wars: The Lightsaber Collection Lightsabers from the Skywalker Saga, The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels and more, which lands 20th October, giving us a closer look at the lightsaber of Caleb Dume, better known as Kanan Jarrus of Star Wars Rebels fame.
There’s some fascinating information in the spread, including the nugget that the design of the blade is taken – as much of Rebels was – directly from the sketches of Ralph McQuarrie, including the presence of a guard on the hilt.
Star Wars: The Lightsaber Collection is a comprehensive visual guide exploring the iconic and legendary lightsabers found within the Star Wars galaxy, featuring fan-favorite hilts from the Skywalker saga, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels, comics, novels, and video games.
