Here is a FB comment exchange talking about the release of the Adept, that veered into the absence of the Rebel. Also mentioned is a re-imagined Monarch, that will be dubbed "Unleashed"
Dane Cagle Kanan re release next?

Phillip Isherwood
No were re doing the monarch next, shortened it by 1.5in packed a ton more detail into the crystal chamber, made it more accurate. New one will be called Unleashed.

Dane Cagle
Ah damn if you guys re released the rebel it would sell like hotcakes but congrats on the new saber i cant wait to see it

Phillip Isherwood
Its coming, we were waiting to get cerakoting up and running so we could do accurate coloring, now that we have that its in the que

Dane Cagle

Elijah Caulin

I’m so excited!!
That was the first Saberforge saber I had ever seen, and from that moment I wanted it. But when I had the money it wasn’t available.
Can’t wait!!!

The Rebel is a nice design overall. I submit that it is mainly the emitter and pommel that stand out though and the switch section and especially the body are kind of meh... I have played around with the ASP virtual saber builder and have the solution. Try this for yourself to see what I mean. Put a saber together with the rebel emitter and pommel, but use body 4, and switch section 4, or whatever you prefer when it comes to the switch section, but body 4 sends this design over the top IMHO.

How about this latest quote from Phil from the FB feed:
How about this, we are going to bring back the rebel, very soon, so instead of should we bring it back or not, lets do this, what would you like to see changed or improved for rebel mk2? We will do our best to incorporate those changes into the new design and will shoot for a may 4th release

And this...
Now that we can do in house cerakote accurate hilt color will not be difficult but it will be spendy, even one color cerakote is going to be around 75.00-100, masking spraying and baking is labor intensive. Anthony Gray what would be looking at cost wise for a green or grey/silver one color scheme? Brushed aluminum no coating for silver, green or grey cerakote, this pattern.

I personally would offer a sort of "dual-tone" Rebel alongside this one. Maybe offer a souped up replica like the one above as a Legacy saber and add a crystal chamber, or don't add a crystal chamber, I don't know how much additional extra that would add.

So like a normal, dual-tone, silver-black Rebel as an Elite saber(weathered too, of course), and a Legacy saber that is super high detail and features every minute detail. Just an idea.

Now this is awesome news. Like I mentioned before, I love the emitter and pommel, but not the other 2 sections of the Rebel. I don't like anything with a control box. They are ugly, and unwieldy in every way possible. I really like the idea of a silver with black accent Standard Finish, and a black with silver accent Dual Tone Finish similar to the Renegade. Imagine Body 4 or something similar in black with silver. Also, a black emitter with silver accents would also be sweet. With the right switch section I actually like having it the opposite color of the rest of the saber. That may be just me though, but it looks good on the ASP Saber Builder.

Please just get rid of all switch/control boxes on all but movie replica sabers. I actually don't know if this is replica or original saber. Somebody help me out with that one please? :huh:

Hi All,

Yep, the Rebel is a "loosely" based Saberforge version of Kanan Jarrus' lightsaber.

The image used in the FB feed pictured above is from Wookiepedia's Kanan Jarrus Lightsaber page. (Click HERE to view page)

I have tried to link to the image but the image link URL function doesn't recognise the web address for the picture.
kind regards,

For Tyeth

Any clue when this will come out?

After last week's rebel episode, I am definitely in the market for one.

Phil's FB post (quoted above) says the he would want to shoot for a May (the) 4th release. Nothing in stone, but that is the plan.

If they can offer it with a detachable emitter, I'm in.

Would be a perfect candidate for a pogo pin connector similar to the neopixel adapaters.

Thank you for the heads up regarding the origin of this saber. That being the case, there probably won't be much in the way of changing the body and switch section components. Too bad, because it is not really a good look. I love the emitter and pommel as I said before, but not the body and switch sections. Star Wars Rebels could have done better IMHO. In an ASP version I would swap those sections with ASP Body 4 and Switch Section 4, with the body finished in black.

ASP has a Rebel emitter, doesn't it?

It most certainly does. The first time I played around with the builder I was looking at different "S" shroud emitters and kept coming back to the Rebel because of the guard.
