Burbank, CA (January 26, 2009) eFX Inc., the premier manufacturer of authentic, screen accurate prop replicas is proud to announce our very first , officially licensed Star Wars lightsaber – the Ahsoka Tano lightsaber from the new animated series: Star Wars:The Clone Wars. And, to commemorate our very first replica from The Clone Wars, we have made this a very special Director’s Signature Edition. Dave Filoni, the Director of The Clone Wars, has signed each and every plaque.

An exciting new chapter in the Star Wars saga has begun with the new animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars on Cartoon Network. The Clone Wars has attracted an incredible average of 9 million viewers every week since it first premiered on October 3, 2008. One of the most popular new characters is Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker’s new padawan. Ahsoka, who Anakin “affectionately” refers to as “Snips,” brings a new, empowering attitude to the Star Wars galaxy.

As with all Jedi, Ahsoka designed her own lightsaber. You can see the obvious influences in the design of her lightsaber of her Jedi Masters and mentors, including Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker.

• MSRP: US $349
• Worlwide Edition to be determined by the pre-orders, (Not to exceed 1000 pieces)
• Dave Filoni Director’s Signature Edition

UPDATE: Amy from eFX sent along the following.
"Hi Everyone! I wanted to remind you all that the order cut-off date for the Ahsoka lightsaber is tomorrow, April 15th at midnight. We will be capping the edition size at the number of pending orders so after tomorrow these lightsabers will not be available anymore. Thanks! Amy."

Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
