This was the original lightsaber owned by Anakin Skywalker. It had a blue plasma blade, chunky controls, and thick ridges on the handle. It also bears a striking resemblance to Darth Vader’s lightsaber, with a chrome emitter hood instead of black. While fighting his way through Poggle the Lesser’s battle droid foundries on Geonosis, Skywalker had his lightsaber destroyed by a mechanical cutting arm. Shortly thereafter, the Battle of Geonosis occurred, effectively starting the Clone Wars. Sometime prior to the Battle of Christophsis, Anakin Skywalker built himself a new lightsaber.
