    Star Wars Archives: 1977-1983

    I know! it’s been a hectic year and haven’t been able to spend nearly as much time as I’d like here. But, things are easing up a bit now, so hoping to be around more again. Thanks for the clarification. That explains some of my confusion on some V2 images that may have beeen a dressed V3. This...

    So the V3 was fully dressed as a V2 then?

    Ignorance alert: what is the significance of the blue bits? (Other than they do just look pretty cool). It really is beautiful nick. Congrats on an amazing piece and well done by Scott as usual. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Luke ROTJ V2 lightsaber

    Well, it’s unclear if that’s what wore the paint off. I don’t think that was the primary reason, personally. Second, it did mess a lot of things up. Apparently, they spent a lot of time between ESB and ROTJ fixing and giving some of the R2 units new motors and this first scene basically...

    Yeah, these are the broad strokes. If you’d like an even more detailed timeline, I can probably transpose tomorrow for ya. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Luke ROTJ V2 lightsaber

    Are you certain? My understanding of the chronology , purely as it pertains to the V2 showing up, is as such: 1) sandstorm 2) Ewok village scenes 2) Death Star 3) Sail barge/Yuma 4) Endor Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Luke ROTJ V2 lightsaber

    The “sand” was apparently: “...a mixture mostly of vermiculite, an industrial-use polyester-type grain, with a very light talcum powder,” blown around by large, industrial fans. I have absolutely no idea how that impacts the sand-wore-off-the-paint theory. Though my gut agrees with Seth that...

    Re: Luke v2 lightsaber paint stencils: All new files 2 sets for me please! Option A - sounds like people who wanted to rough theirs up were able to do so. Not sure if going in reverse is as easy. That's my rationale. And I vote for waiting to test fit.

    Looking for people in all fields! What is this? (Possible SW part)

    Unfortunately No, I remember seeing the piece PoopaPapaPalps found and it looked really promising indeed, but Scott, who has seen and held the real thing up close, confirmed it was not it and he was unable to shed any further light on what or where it might be from at the time. Sent from my...
