That's my take on it. Sounds like they were custom made & they iterated to make them as slim as they could while still getting what they needed inside. It was nice to hear that Filoni stayed on them about how they looked. I was actually pleasantly surprised at how well they matched up with what we saw in Rebels.im pretty convinced these were made from scratch from production since filoni goes into detail on how many variations they used because of the bulky battery they were using.. but curious as to what others think
Yeah, I'm sure they had all the reference material they needed in addition to having the creator himself there to offer guidance. For the rest of us, he posted a guide back in 2015 ahead of Celebration. It's a fantastic reference for the colors (like how the shoto is darker than the main hilt).Here’s one fact I forgot— Filoni did all the character designs for rebels. A prop person didn’t design her lightsabers, he did for Rebels. The Mando team didn’t have to reference toys or fan recreations, Filoni could give them the art. At the very least, they would have access to the renders from Rebels.
Just saw this doc an hour ago - very freaking cool.
How do external batteries work without wires? like literally, how does the current flow over a signal?
i dont know if it has anything to do with filming, i really haven't dug into it yet, but it looks like the pommels are different, dont quote me on that thoughYou're right. It looks lighter for some reason. My screen capture wasn't high res so getting a good high res capture wil lbe great
