Lightsaber Hilt Pieces Now Being Sold Separately As “Scrap Metal” at Savi’s Workshop in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

So you made reservations and got to build your own, custom lightsaber with the help of the Gatherers at Savi’s Workshop in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. You’re probably proud of your creation, but over time, you may want to further customize it. Maybe you’ve communed with other sides of the force and would like to meld both styles together.

Well, luckily, the Gatherers are open for business (well, except when the First Order is around) and are now selling separate lightsaber hilt pieces at Savi’s Workshop. How do you go about purchasing them? It’s easy. Just walk up and ask for “scrap metal.”

The pieces cost $19.99 each and you can have your pick from any of the four themes available:

Peace and Justice

Salvaged from fallen Jedi temples and crashed starships, these lightsaber pieces were created for Force wielders of the Republic era.

Protection and Defense

Cultivated from a time forgotten, these earliest lightsaber pieces contain designs and inscriptions that are shrouded in mystery.

Power and Control

Reclaimed from the ashes of the rumored Sith homeworld and abandoned Sith temples, these lightsaber pieces were originally forged by the Sith of their time.

Elemental Nature

These lightsaber pieces are born of that same Force. They are as unique as the user and as the elements of nature: the wood as strong as metal from a Brylark tree, a bone of the Cartusion whale or even a tooth from a Rancor.

The pieces are amassed from leftover custom lightsaber builds, hence why they’re referred to as scrap metal:

Do keep in mind that you still need to experience Savi’s Workshop Handbuild Lightsabers, priced at $199.99, in order to obtain the main part of the hilt that includes the kyber crystal and crystal igniter.

While the additional packaged kyber crystals are currently out of stock at Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities due to merchandise shortages, it’s nice that Savi’s Workshop is still giving you options to customize your lightsaber with these individual parts.

I figured it would only a matter of time before they started selling pieces, to much revenue to be made not to do it


This seems silly, you already call lightsabers “scrap metal” in order to fool passing by stormtroopers…. Won’t this get confusing?? (Not that I mind the opportunity to further customize)


Should not be to bad, besides the real confusion I see is people getting upset that the employee does not know where they can build a lightsaber. I interjected on several conversations to break the ice and inform the cast member that they are indeed looking for the junk dealers. Pretty awesome they are holding the line on that.


It’s worth mentioning you actually buy the scrap pieces in Dok Ondar’s. No AP discount, and pieces from different sets are incompatible (allegedly) – you can’t put a power & control emitter on an otherwise elemental hilt.
