HasLab which happens to be a Hasbro crowdfunding company is organizing a campaign that will bring Inquisitor Moses Ingram’s Reva’s lightsaber back to life. Debuting in the Disney+ series Obi-Wan Kenobi, very recently, Reva is among the Force-sensitive warriors, recruited by the Empire to hunt down the Jedi.
She is an Inquisitor in Obi-Wan Kenobi, who has an obsession with killing Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Obi-Wan Kenobi Reveals Reva Was A Padawan
As the series proceeds, Star Wars finds out that Reva was among those Padawans who were tried to be killed by Hayden Christensen’s Anakin Skywalker in the Jedi Temple during what conspired in Revenge of the Sith when the Dark Side got the young Jedi, becoming the evil Sith Lord Darth Vader.
After he barely escapes alive, she gets enlisted to become an Inquisitor by the Empire. While he pretends to be loyal to the Empire, Reva uses Obi-Wan as bait to get her revenge on Darth Vader. After years of seeding the hate in her soul and heart, Reva became an extra ruthless Inquisitor, who doesn’t hesitate to take the life of an innocent to get what she wants.
HasLab Wants to make the Force FX Elite Lightsaber
With this crowdfunding campaign live, HasLab wishes to make the Reva Force FX Elite Lightsaber, a collector’s item that is the same as Reva’s lightsaber. Only hitting circular, her choice of weapon has a couple of red blades that can be combined into a deadly tool, or use as two different lightsabers.
Thanks to their whole partnership alongside Lucasfilm, HasLab can assure that the collector edition of the lightsaber of Reva will be closely adapted to the real props used on the set of Obi-Wan Kenobi’s.
As explained by Hasbro’s manager of product design Chris Reif:
“A lot of times they’ll [Lucasfilm] be developing the props, taking them into the studio, shooting reference photos of them, and sending us the photos the next day. One of the many great aspects of the partnership and trust we have with Lucasfilm is early access to very detailed references. In this case that took the form of a lot of photographs, 3D data, sound files, and conversations about when the saber would appear. We worked with Lucasfilm closely as we developed our own CAD [computer-aided design] from the reference, making sure we really studied every little detail and feature. This includes a lot of little notes and drawings, even a few early models just to make sure the size was right and felt good to wield.”
HasLab looks forward to shipping the Force FX Elite Lightsaber 2023 fall. To back it, Star Wars fans want to pledge $500 dollars on the Pulse campaign page.
