A very happy May the 4th to fans across the world! In addition to everything else wonderful dropping today, Insight Editions is giving fans a special preview of what to expect from their forthcoming book, The Lightsaber Collection. The weapon of a Jedi, the lore around lightsabers and the connection to their user has been explored the last few years, but this project promises to expand upon what is already known.
