    Hey!

    I am on the hunt for the lightsabers General Grievous used in ROTS. If I remember correctly, they are:

    Kenobi ROTS saber
    Anakin ROTS saber
    Ki Adi Mundi saber
    Adi Gallia saber

    Is this correct? Wanting to confirm the screen-seen ones. Thanks in advance for the help!

    One of them is a funky design that didn't belong to any other character. It looked a lot like the Adi but had a smooth and dark body. I don't have the screen capture available on this device but maybe someone will chime in with it.

    It would appear they change hands shot to shot as well as color, here's a few

    I was rather disappointed in the lack of attention to these scenes, more or less :lol

    Thanks for the help! What I'm seeing is:

    ROTS:
    -Kenobi ROTS saber
    -Anakin ROTS saber
    -Ki Adi Mundi saber
    -Adi Gallia / 'arena' style saber in bronze or something.....never noticed that before

    Clone Wars
    -Kit Fisto saber
    -Plo Koon saber
    -Ki Adi Mundi saber
    -Adi Gallia / 'Arena' style saber

    I suppose the Adi Gallia / 'Arena' saber is more likely Shaak Ti's saber that Grievous took during the cut scene maybe?

    This drives me absolutely crazy. They couldn't come up with a few generic sabers to use in that scene??! A flashlight would have been better! Totally stupid.

    So ... if Grievous is holding an OB1 ROTS, ... I'm curious to know what Obi-Wan is holding in his hand in that scene ... since it resembles a certain OB1 ANH stunt version with the booster being flat and no clamp?

    That's one of the complaints about the Prequels I totally agree with. Same for using the same design for the main Jedi and just changing a few things.

    So what's the project, just the sabers or a lifesize Grievous?

    Strictly saber display, maybe with his bone mask.

    Isn't it the saber on this thread, third photo down?

    Indeed PoopaPapaPalps ... most likely ... thanks :) ... I just watched certain fragments of Episode III and in the beginning Grievous is handed over the lightsabers of OB1 and Anakin when captured with chancelor Palpatine ... but within minutes they 'force' them back from his robe with the distraction of R2-D2 ... hence the confusion within the 3D animator's team?
