Yeah, that Rebels is definitely better and more detailed of the two, better dimensions, and the insinuation with that graphic methos provided with the Sabine Wren and Pre Vizsla shadows for scale is that this is THE saber. Meant to show continuity.
would look cool... but actually, we don't even know if this this even uses a focusing crystal anywhere in it lol
i remember in Legends it was always talked about as 'sucking the light in from around it', or something similar... but i don't remember anything about it's internals ever being mentioned, as the Mandalorian's treated it as a holy relic and wouldn't dare take it apart.
My question is: is there a way to install an actual black light into this? The original prototype had a blue-ish looking flash on clash, and that was really more striking than the white. Because the outline I think is meant to be like a black light effect.
honestly, i don't think this hilt needs anything fancy like crystals or leds on it
it's a utilitarian hilt... form follows function... it does what it does, and looks that way because of it... i love it just the way it is
Exactly why I prefer the Clone Wars version it was made as a tool not a fancy prop. It was utilitarian by design for mass production to soldiers not as a leaders sword to show position or rank.
The rebels artist just couldn't leave it alone and had to make it different just to say this is Disney rebels not Children's channel TCW. And it's the same reason Ahsoka didn't have her original lightsaber in rebels.
It hasn't changed that much... it's got a touch more detail on it and some engraved styles, but that could have been done in the time between Clone Wars and Rebels... we've still got a lot of history about it to learn
As long as the blade is jet black like that with some sort of edge lighting effect, it will be fine.
Why not recruit the guy that makes the ripper blades on elite lightsaber society. It would be a basic blade for him, with his designs, just some edge enhancement, but I still think he would do a good job.
It was taken from Pre Vizsla by Darth Maul. Then in recent episodes of Rebels, Maul was trying to recruit Ezra as his apprentice, and one thing led to another and it fell into the hands of a possessed Sabine Wren. So it's now back with a Mandalorian.
