How the original Star Wars lightsaber was created (video)


Sr Member
It's amazing how for years on this board, we (collectively) have debated about the OT sabers. As far as we knew/know, the Hero Obi-Wan was long gone, lost, disassembled, etc.

OK everyone; freeze frame at 0:53. Which sabers are on the table? Looks like resin Obi-Wan sabers (or possible ROTJ Luke) with a ? Vader.

He picks up an ESB Luke, but is that the original D-ring assembly/ bracket?

Now, the Saber with the dueling rod that Laela hands him... which is that? It looks like a Graflex Luke, but with a black Vader band/clamp?

...a Graflex camera flash? They expect us to believe that was what they used for a lightsaber? Nice try.

I'll be happy to help anyone who was misled by this nonsense by taking those bogus "props" off their hands for them.
