Star Wars fans, prepare to add a new collectible to your shelves! Arriving just in time for the 5th anniversary of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, we are excited to reveal an exclusive first look at the new ‘Hilt of a Jedi’ collectible box set.  Featuring the new Legacy LIGHTSABER hilt collectible inspired by Ki-Adi-Mundi, the set arrives tomorrow at and at Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort.

This limited-edition Lightsaber hilt comes in a beautiful collectible wooden box and includes:

  • A special Disney Parks exclusive edition of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge #1 with featuring the Cerean Jedi Master himself, as drawn by Star Wars artists Chris Sprouse (pencils), Karl Story (inks), and Rachelle Rosenberg (colors).
  • An individually numbered insert card featuring a quote inspired by Dok-Ondar, and the official Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge 5th anniversary logo.

Attach a Legacy LIGHTSABER blade (sold separately) to this hilt and the blade will illuminate to Ki-Adi Mundi’s signature blue color.

A life-long Star Wars fan, Cody Hampton, senior manager of merchandising at Disney Consumer Products, has worked on delivering fans authentic collectible LIGHTSABER hilts since the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in 2019.

“May 31, 2024 marks the 5th year anniversary of the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland resort,” said Hampton. “To celebrate the special occasion, we are excited to release ‘The Hilt of a Jedi’ limited edition box set. The set is designed to be deep in story as the wooden box features the symbol of Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities and is inspired by the story told within the comic book.”

First introduced to fans in the 1998 Star Wars Legends comic “Prelude to the Rebellion, Part One,” and more famously known for his appearances in the Star Wars prequel trilogy and the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Ki-Adi-Mundi’s hilt was acquired by Dok-Ondar when he purchased it from Jabba the Hutt. This latest addition to the Legacy LIGHTSABER hilt line is limited to just 6,000 units worldwide and is available for purchase starting tomorrow.

In the five years since Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opened, 32 Legacy LIGHTSABER hilts inspired by fan-favorite Star Wars characters from around the galaxy have been released. “The team has always worked hard to bring unexpected, unique, in-story merchandise to our guests,” said Hampton. “I have been a fan of the ‘elegant weapons’ that are Lightsabers my entire life and being a part of the opening team of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge was a dream come true.”

To celebrate the anniversary of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Hampton’s team has created a checklist of all the Legacy LIGHTSABER hilts, limited edition sets and box sets that have been released to-date. This poster, available to download, is perfect for any newer collectors or fans that may be new to the Legacy Lightsaber collectibles. “We work hard so that the collectible Lightsabers we produce are as authentic as possible to the source material, whether that be film, animation, games or publishing,” says Hampton. “I’m so proud to still be a part of the team that is creating new, unique merchandise like the Legacy LIGHTSABER hilts.”

The new ‘Hilt of a Jedi’ Ki-Adi-Mundi Legacy LIGHTSABER Hilt collectible box set is available tomorrow at Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort. The set will also be available tomorrow on starting at 8 a.m. PT.
