    Does anyone have a scan of the drawings of Luke's, Obi-Wan's and Vader's lightsabers from Fantastic Films magazine 1977? I know I do have it on a CD somewhere but I can't find it!

    If you have it, please post it :)

    No. As far as I know they were an artist's renderings of the screen used lightsabers. They were in simple diagram form.

    Not sure. I only remember that image of the three lightsabers. The article went on to say something about Vader's being black signifying the dark side and Luke's being silver meaning... err... I can't remember... innocence or something!?!?

    If you can find it that would be great. I've been through my old CDs of reference images and couldn't find it. Probably lost it when some older CD-ROMs went bad.

    If it'll jog someone's memory, here are machined re-creations of the lightsabers depicted in the (rather poor) artist's renderings of the original lightsabers. Being fair to the artist I bet he only had a few crappy press stills to go from.

    No, I mean I also have the McQuarie design that's on the Fantastic Films page. I have all four. Some of the earliest prop replicas I collected!

    I love that the write up tells you "Luke's light sabre, actually an augmented GRAFLEX flash gun".

    The components were laid out way back then. lol

    I still have my copy somewhere at my parent's house. I wore that thing out.

    I soooo wanted one of those laser guns they sold in the ad in the back of the magazine.
