New lightsaber “scrap metal” pieces are available at Savi’s Workshop in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
There are four scrap metal themes: Peace and Justice, Power and Control, Elemental Nature, and Protection and Defense. “Peace and Justice” and “Power and Control” have completely new items. All four collections received new pieces at Disneyland.
This chart available at the workshop shows off all of the different scrap metal items available.
Savi’s Handbuilt Lightsabers is the custom Lightsaber building experience in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Guests must pre-pay $249.99 plus tax for the experience, which includes a lightsaber (a hilt, two sleeves, one emitter, one pommel cap, one set of activation plates and switches, and a 31″ blade), a cloisonné pin, and a lightsaber carrying case.
The in-universe story is that the Gatherers, who possess forbidden knowledge of the Jedi Order, are operating out of Savi & Son Salvage. On the surface, Savi sells scrap metals from old ships and devices. The Gatherers use his salvage shop as a cover to help Force-sensitive beings craft their own lightsabers.
When you arrive at Savi’s, the Gatherers will show you the various collections of “scrap metal” they have to offer. Each theme has multiple options for most of the lightsaber parts, so once you are inside the workshop, the Gatherers will help you select the specific designs you want for your hilt.
For a close-up look at the old styles for comparison, see our detailed photos here.
Peace and Justice
The Peace and Justice theme embodies salvaged scraps from fallen Jedi temples and crashed starships in these Republic-era designs to honor the galaxy’s former guardians. These parts will have the most traditional Jedi lightsaber design of the four collections.
The biggest change here is the removal of the angled emitter. Both emitter options in the new set are flat-ended. There’s still a pommel cap with a ring for attaching it to your belt if you so choose, and a new conical pommel cap as well. The sleeves have more solid black overall but no longer have an all-black option. The accents are more orange than golden.
Another change is that both collections now offer a switch piece that bears the mark of the theme. The switch on the left in the third row has a round yellow “Peace and Justice” symbol.
Power and Control
Originally forged by Dark Side warriors, this style features rumored remnants from the Sith homeworld and abandoned temples. Characterized by sharp and strong forms, these pieces showcase the brutality and relentlessness of the Sith’s insatiable desire for power and control.
Like the old set, the pieces are primarily black and silver with red accents not unlike exposed wiring. The new collection has more predominantly black pieces than the previous, which had several silver options. This collection no longer offers a conical pommel cap, but both choices have loops for easy attachment.
The pronged emitter has sharper angles than its predecessor and more silver details. The other emitter used to be flat ended, but now has an angled opening.
