Savi’s Workshop – Handbuilt Lightsabers

Guests can build their own lightsaber at Savi’s Workshop – Handbuilt Lightsabers in a unique and intimate experience with “Gatherers“, choosing between one of four different types of hilt themes:

  • Peace and Justice – Salvaged scraps from fallen Jedi temples and crashed starships in these Republic-era designs honor the galaxy’s former guardians.
  • Power and Control – Originally forged by dark side warriors, this style features rumored remnants from the Sith homeworld and abandoned temples.
  • Elemental Nature – This theme embodies the Force, an energy created by all living things – like Brylark trees, Cartusion whale bones, and Rancor teeth.
  • Protection and Defense – Hilt materials bear mysterious motifs and inscriptions that reconnect users with the ancient wellspring of the Force.

The Gatherers will then help guests choose their kyber crystal to place inside the saber, which will be available in red, blue, green, and purple.

After that, the assembly process will begin based on the hilt theme chosen. Each box of parts that guests receive will contain:

  • 1 hilt
  • 4 sleeves (pick 2)
  • 2 emitters (pick 1)
  • 2 pommel caps (pick 1)
  • 2 sets of activation plates and switches (pick 1 set)

Once the hilt is complete, the parts that guests didn’t use are collected by the Gatherers and returned to Savi’s inventory. These will not be included with the lightsaber package. After that, the Gatherers will connect the guest’s hilt to a 36-inch lightsaber blade, completing the experience!

Check out pricing and other need-to-know details on this experience below:

  • $199.99 per lightsaber, plus tax
  • Carry case is included
  • Age Recommendation: 5+

I’m so thankful to see these prices. I really wanted to do the droid and was hoping it wouldn’t be too high. It’s pretty good. (I’d always love for it to be le$$ haha.

Any hints as to the size of the robots? I haven’t seen them in any context for scale.

I saw a video of them being introduced ( of course, I can’t find it now) and they looked about a foot tall, maybe a bit more. Doesn’t matter how much they are, I’m getting an R unit with all the extras it will hold on June 3rd!

They’re a pretty good size – about 12” high and 7” across. Perfect for zooming around 🙂

Any hint as to the quality of the physical blade of the lightsaber? Is it an actual cool glowing blade or is it just plastic?
