Price Increases Hit Savi’s Workshop Handbuilt Lightsabers & Droid Depot in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

    A galaxy far, far away is about to take a bigger chunk out of your credits as prices have been increased for both the Savi’s Handbuilt Custom Lightsaber experience and the Droid Depot experience in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Here’s a look at the changes!

    Savi’s Workshop – Handbuilt Lightsabers (Price increased from $220 to $250)

    Choose Your Path

    Travel to Black Spire Outpost, where a group known as the “Gatherers” ushers you into a covert workshop packed with unusual parts, whimsical pieces and miscellaneous memorabilia collected from the far reaches of the galaxy. 

    Under their guidance, you can construct your very own lightsaber and bring it to life through the power of kyber crystals. Builders beware—you must protect the shop’s secrecy to avoid being discovered by the First Order!

    Once your lightsaber is complete (purchase required!), you’ll be ready to embark on incredible new adventures—from the far reaches of Wild Space to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge!

    Assemble Your Lightsaber

    Meet one of Savi’s Gatherers outside his workshop, where you’ll choose one of 4 available hilt themes and receive a cloisonné pin to identify your selection. Themes include:

    • 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 now help you select the heart of your lightsaber—the kyber crystal, which is available in red, blue, green or violet.

    Next, begin assembling your hilt—parts will be provided based on your theme and cloisonné pin. Each box of parts includes:

    • 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)

    Upon hilt completion, the unused parts will be collected by the Gatherers and returned to Savi’s inventory. These are not included with your lightsaber package.

    Finally, the Gatherers will masterfully connect your hilt to a 31” lightsaber blade so you’re ready for anything the galaxy puts in your path!
