Default Lukes ROTJ Lightsaber.

I recently received a master replica of Luke's lightsaber. I was thrilled and got in the mood to watch Rotj. As such I realized something he at no point in the film has bronze on it. Its black and where the replica has bronze. What a major mistake. How did they miss that.

I'm getting way too deep into my inner nerd but they used an Obi-Wan Kenobi prop in the film. Hence why there's no bronze.

I believe there were two different versions of his lightsaber that made it into the movie: the hero saber for close up shots and the stunt saber for action scenes.

Hero:





Stunt:






Congrats on the awesome saber, it's been on my wish list for years.

I want to get one of those fan made one's where the blade lights up perfectly and fluctuates, as well as having movie accurate sound effects. Problem is they're like a thousand dollars or something. Oh well.

You can see where the bronze and metallic paint has worn off the stunt saber do to excessive wear and tear during production and over the years following production.

Regarding Luke's ROTJ saber, isn't it just pure sex? I love that saber and Obi-wan's ROTS/ANH saber.

Yeah it's nice but Obi's is by far the best looking.

Luke's RotJ and Ben's ANH sabers are my favorites as well. I really love the weathered look on them.

Absolutely my favourite. Not just in terms of the hilt, but the blad and sound FX, which were different to the others.

Ugh, that weathered ANH Ben lightsaber was the one that got away from me. It still hurts to this day . I bought the ROTS one just to compensate a bit lol.

They're soooo expensive now! I had Luke's ANH saber but I sold it when I got married. I looked to pick it up again a little while ago and the price had at least doubled for it.
