    Looks like they're cranking these out about every six months or so. I wonder if another Ripleys museum will choose to believe this one is authentic as well...

    Its like back in the day with the Mark English Phasers and Communicators that everyone thought were real, they even fooled a few experts. Some of them are still being auctioned as real even though 99.99% of the people know they are not and for the most part the auction houses perpetuate the fraud but not doing their do diligence.

    I also thought all the original props were returned since there wasn't necessarily an original plan for more movies. From what I've seen before there is no "original" luke/obi-wan saber because they got returned to the prop company.

    And even for ESB and RotJ, they didn't exactly keep track of the props very well. Vader's ESB saber eventually turned up in a RotJ exhibit (probably because the same prop was used as the hero for both, but to my knowledge that hasn't been actually confirmed); Luke's ESB only exists as the Ranch Saber, which was never on screen as it exists now; the V3 was "restored" to make it look like the Hero for display; and the V2 was thought lost until what, 2015?

    Basically, the only lightsabers we know were screen-used in more or less the shape they exist in today are Vader's ESB/RotJ hero, the DV6, V2, and V3. And even the V3 doesn't look like it did on-screen.

    While I believe it's totally possible Roger Christian kept an original ANH saber in his private collection for the last 40 years, I'm extremely skeptical he actually did, given his comments over the years. I guess he could have also misplaced it somewhere and only recently found it, but i just seems more likely that he built a replica and is just better at it than Kurtz was.

    Now you mention it, I actually have a set of Lukeskywalker's original macrobinoculars. Ive had them in storage this whole time and only now decided that they're the original ones. Very legitimate.









    ish...

    To add my two pence on all this - In many ways its just a scam, some poor person will buy it but its as real as mine sitting on my desk next to me. Just because it came from the same box doesn't make it the article. Heck - they were all made in the same factory, does that mean all our sabers are the actual prop? No. Only what was seen IN THE FILM, captured BY THE CAMERA is legitimate.

    I'm not even sure superglue was readily available in 1976 .
    A two part epoxy called " araldite" was the new big thing back then in the uk . That's what most of the blaster greeblies were held on with .. and why most of them fell off during filming lol.
