The final collection of “scrap metal” lightsaber pieces at Savi’s Workshop in Disney’s Hollywood Studios has received all new items. Peace and Justice, Power and Control, and Protection and Defense were already completely replaced and all four collections were replaced at the Savi’s in Disneyland.
A guide is available at Savi’s Workshop to pick out your lightsaber pieces before sifting through the scraps.
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.
In addition to the chart, sample hilts made of the different parts are usually available to look at.
As we have been told, the Force is an energy field created by all living things; it surrounds us, penetrates us, and binds the galaxy together. These lightsaber pieces are born of that same Force. They are as unique as the user and as the elements of nature.
This collection is the most changed from the previous versions. While silver remains a main color in the designs, the pieces have all seen major updates.
Two of the sleeves are primarily made of “leather” and “bone” rather than silver and wood.
The emitters are both longer and cylindrical, eliminating the angled and capped designs from the prior collection.
The most obvious change is the pommel caps. This pommel cap now has a wooden triangular end rather than a flat end with a ring.
The Rancor tooth is no longer an option for a pommel cap, replaced instead by what appears to be a small Bantha horn.
This green sleeve is supposed to resemble Dewback leather.
The leather-wrapped sleeve is lighter in color and has a band of bone around one end.
The switches look like they are made of the same off-white bone.

Actually no the real story via the book is savi is a friend of lor whose luke and leia ward/friend the person who dies giving poe the map in 7. Thats how savi knows about the jedi and protects them. The gathers are his team of workers lead by yelena and thanks to vi are w the resistance but it takes alot of convicing like half a book. If anyone wants the real story read vi’s book while it sits in the world of 7-9 she is leias spy and goes to batuu and deals w that world so its her and batuus story.
