Star Wars: Lightsabers By Scholastic

Posted By Eddie on June 3, 2010

Amazon updated yesterday with a new listing, and added a description today! This guide to lightsabers by Scholastic will be released on December 10 (SRP $ 8.99)...

Star Wars: Lightsabers

Paperback: 64 pages
Publisher: Scholastic Inc.
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0545271770
ISBN-13: 978-0545271776


The first and only guide to the galaxy's most fascinating weapons. Each lightsaber is as unique as the Jedi (or Sith) who wields it. Design techniques, hilt length, power source: all of these choices can add up to very different results, suited to particular applications. From Obi-Wan's modification of his Padawan lightsaber to Darth Maul's double-welded model, this book examines each lightsaber in detail, revealing the secrets of its construction.

Sounds exciting!!! Hopefully we will have some official confirmation soon...

UPDATE: Well, I did not expect official confirmation that soon, but starwars.com posted a First Look today:

The lightsaber is the weapon of the Jedi Knight, and it has captured the imaginations of countless people since Luke Skywalker first ignited a brilliant blade in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. Scholastic, Inc. will explore the galaxy's most fascinating weapon in a new 64-page book suitable for Star Wars fans of all ages.
What are the secrets hidden inside a lightsaber? How does a Jedi build one? And what of the red-bladed weapons favored by the wicked Sith Lords? This book presents images, stats and stories of 25 of the most notable lightsabers, and 10 of the most famous duels. The book also includes key foldouts that make the action and detail closer and bigger!

Star Wars: Lightsabers: A Guide to Weapons of the Force is written by Pablo Hidalgo, and is due out from Scholastic Inc. this winter.
