The first and only guide to the galaxy's most fascinating weapons. Each lightsaber is as unique as the Jedi (or Sith) who wields it. Design techniques, hilt length, power source: all of these choices can add up to very different results, suited to particular applications. From Obi-Wan's modification of his Padawan lightsaber to Darth Maul's double-welded model, this book examines each lightsaber in detail, revealing the secrets of its construction.
Sounds exciting!!! Hopefully we will have some official confirmation soon...
UPDATE: Well, I did not expect official confirmation that soon, but starwars.com posted a First Look today:
The lightsaber is the weapon of the Jedi Knight, and it has captured the imaginations of countless people since Luke Skywalker first ignited a brilliant blade in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. Scholastic, Inc. will explore the galaxy's most fascinating weapon in a new 64-page book suitable for Star Wars fans of all ages. What are the secrets hidden inside a lightsaber? How does a Jedi build one? And what of the red-bladed weapons favored by the wicked Sith Lords?

The book also includes key foldouts that make the action and detail closer and bigger!
