    Hello everyone, I recently got a Luke ESB saber and am wondering if the circuit board is the correct color. The 13 metal strips are silver and I alway thougt they were copper. Can anyone verify what the circuit board should be?

    edit: merged...

    Most of the pics of the circut board from ESB show a white or green board with gold strips topped with silver.
    Yours seems to be missing the gold.

    I looked at one of my genesis games and it look exactly like the board from them. I bet that is what it is. Some sort of cartrige game circuit board.

    Yup.
    Quoted from Parts of SW:

    The mounting clamp in the middle of the flash is what attached it to the camera. Slid into this clamp is a section of an old HP-44 bus type computer card edge connector. It was cut down to 2" long leaving 13 gold connectors that taper down to thin silver lines. Shown below is an example of the type of computer card used. Some of the lightsabers had the wide gold connector side towards the clamp lever, while others had the thin silver lines that way.

    The "newer" connectors had around 22 lines per inch....thus the "NES" cartriges are way off. :unsure
