Star Wars: The High Republic Shows Off New Type Of Crossguard Lightsaber
When Kylo Ren was unveiled in the first trailer for The Force Awakens, a lot of the discussion centred on his unusual lightsaber. This was a crossguard design, with vents on the hilt blasting excess energy on either side of the blade. It was a striking look and a cool visual reflection of the rage burning inside the character. But though it fit Kylo Ren to have a dangerous and unstable weapon, it didn’t seem practical and appeared to have been an anomaly among Star Wars lightsabers.

Now, it’s not quite so unique, as a new lightsaber from upcoming transmedia project Star Wars: The High Republic shows a more refined take on the same crossguard concept, which you can see below:
