Get a closer look at the lightsaber and mask of Star Wars: The Force Awakens' villain

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

This year's Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, California houses an exhibit that features costumes, props and models from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, giving attendees a closer look at the new heroes, new enemies and a couple iconic Star Wars ships. The exhibit also reveals a few story details for The Force Awakens.

In the gallery above, you'll see props and costumes for new characters Finn, Rey and Kylo Ren, who appears to be The Force Awakens' all-new Sith. Kylo Ren is rumored to be a collector of Sith goods, and his lightsaber — a 3D printed model is on display here — looks like it was reclaimed from someone else and heavily modified.

We also get a close look at the new Stormtroopers, Snowtroopers and Flametroopers who "enforce the will of the First Order," in The Force Awakens. There's concept art for Rey and Finn (who's packing a lightsaber) and of course plenty of Star Wars' newest shining star, the adorable rolling droid BB-8.

Finally, check out the updated version of the Millennium Falcon and the new Resistance X-wing fighter. According to the prop's official description, the new fighter craft is a "modern incarnation of a classic design, the Incom T-70 X-wing fighter is the signature combat craft of the Resistance forces in their fight against the First Order." Check out that detail shot; that sure looks like BB-8 stuffed in the back of that X-wing.
