    Could be that Rey tinkered a bit to better fit the hilt to her Hands and fighting style..

    Jeez the body isn't even cold and you guys are already fighting over the inheritance.

    it's just a toy box photo. An early concept photo for toys that aren't even out yet. The photo on that box is more photoshopped than a Cosmopolitan magizine cover.

    You guys kill me. I'll wait for trailers and actual movie footage.

    But when? If TLJ does indeed start with Rey handing it to Luke did she stop time to tinker with it?

    I notice the rivet thing right away, but the reflection took a while. I'm going with the art director/photoshopping scenario, probably not a real prop.

    The crazy continuity change is that now the saber can turn a corner apparently.

    Could always ask Rian on Twitter. He confirmed that the storm trooper design was tweaked over there

    Probs won't reply though.

    For what it's worth the packaging is almost certainly by Pilot Studio in Boston. They haven't 'claimed' it yet but they are responsible for basically every recentish Star Wars packaging design including TFA.
    They don't normally use photographs in their work - they are very, very good at photorealistic illustration i.e those images on the box possibly aren't actually (retouched) photographs at all. (But they do look an awful lot like photographs…)

    It might be still be 100% faithful to the reference they were given of course…

    You may be able to get some insight from someone like https://mobile.twitter.com/RockettBlue
    but I imagine they wont be allowed to say much/anything.

    I wouldn't mind this, reminds me of the ROTJ shared stunt clamp. But I doubt its actually cut like that.

    Just my two cents, I think it is one of the stunt sabers which was used in The Force Awakens. In the "announcement trailer" for The Last Jedi, the saber Rey was holding out to Luke looked to be the same as in The Force Awakens.

    There wasn't a saber without rivets/screws seen anywhere in TFA, though

    The two that can be seen is the one with the fx saber with the antenna (might be more than one of these) and the soft stunt fx saber

    Maybe it was the soft fx stunt cause I seem to remember, perhaps on the bluray featurette about the snow battle, seeing a stunt lightsaber with no rivet. I will have to check when I get home tonight.

    The soft stunt fx saber doesn't have them, but it's not the one on the TLJ packaging
