The lightsaber hilt, which is a replica of that belonging to hero Cal Kestis in the game, was released in Disney’s Galaxy’s Edge parks in Disneyland and Walt Disney World on March 25, 2022, after winning a fan poll held two years earlier.
Now, eager fans looking to get their hands on the lightsaber for the first time are being forced to pay around double the retail price as the replicas have begun appearing on Ebay.

At the time of writing, the lightsaber, which costs $159.99 at the parks, has started appearing on Ebay at inflated prices.
Of the listings currently on the site, prices range from $266 (from a seller who has three of them listed), up to $449.
The cheapest Buy it Now price is $289, which would be nearly double the retail price when local shipping is taken into account (and likely substantially more if shipped overseas, thanks to import charges).
While it’s not uncommon for rare or limited items in Disney parks to appear on eBay, a factor that may have added to the popularity of Cal’s lightsaber is that it’s the first time a replica of the blade has been produced.
In 2020, fans voted on which lightsaber they’d like to see added to the park’s selection, and from the list which included the weapons of Anakin Skywalker, Kanan Jarrus, Qui-Gon Jinn, Cal Kestis, Ezra Bridger and Lord Corvax, Cal’s lightsaber won, but it took Disney over 500 days from the conclusion of the vote for the lightsaber to be added to the park.
A Lego set based on Jedi Fallen Order may also be coming soon, according to an internal list of upcoming Lego products that was shared online..
