Burbank, CA (January 26, 2009) eFX Inc., the premier manufacturer of authentic, screen accurate prop replicas is proud to announce our very first , officially licensed Star Wars lightsaber – the Ahsoka Tano lightsaber from the new animated series: Star Wars:The Clone Wars. And, to commemorate our very first replica from The Clone Wars, we have made this a very special Director’s Signature Edition. Dave Filoni, the Director of The Clone Wars, has signed each and every plaque.
An exciting new chapter in the Star Wars saga has begun with the new animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars on Cartoon Network. The Clone Wars has attracted an incredible average of 9 million viewers every week since it first premiered on October 3, 2008. One of the most popular new characters is Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker’s new padawan. Ahsoka, who Anakin “affectionately” refers to as “Snips,” brings a new, empowering attitude to the Star Wars galaxy.
As with all Jedi, Ahsoka designed her own lightsaber. You can see the obvious influences in the design of her lightsaber of her Jedi Masters and mentors, including Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker.
