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 comes with a mini replica lightsaber.
