EFX Collectibles unveiled a Dark Side Rey Lightsaber yesterday. The full 1:1 scale prop replica lightsaber, which is officially licensed, is based on the double-bladed, folding Dark Side Rey Lightsaber shown in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019). The EFX Dark Side Rey Lightsaber retails for $1599 and is currently open for pre-orders (a $500 non-refundable deposit is required). The prop replica is limited to 750 pieces worldwide.
The EFX Dark Side Rey Lightsaber is based on the actual screen-used Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker lightsaber prop and additional reference material from the Lucasfilm production team. The prop replica lightsaber is machined from solid aluminum and features metal surface details and realistic weathering. The hilt features an active hinge and unfolds using same functioning hinge mechanism as the movie prop.
EFX Dark Side Rey Lightsaber includes a Certificate of Authenticity and a hardwood display base with a numbered plaque. The hilt may be displayed on the display base in deactivated form (folded) or activated form (unfolded).
EFX Collectibles is a United States based collectibles company that makes officially licensed Star Wars prop replica and models. EFX had previously manufactured other 1:1 scale prop replica lightsabers including: an Ahsoka Tano lightsaber, a Luke Skywalker (ROTJ) Reveal Lightsaber, and an Obi-Wan Kenobi (ANH) Reveal Lightsaber. The company also manufactured a ‘mini’ 0.45 scale Rey Lightsaber prop replica for the LootCrate DX subscription box in 2015.
