I wouldn't say there's proof it's CGI, it might be, but I think there's some physical element. At the very least there is significant retouching.
What makes me think that this saber is the one seen in the film. Is misaligned pommel. (Or misaligned control box, which ever way you see it) to me it would seem if they had taken the time to create a "hero" prop, you'd think they would have gotten the alignment correct. So that makes me think that the "white glove" saber and the "creepy uncle" are indeed one in the same.I wouldn't say there's proof it's CGI, it might be, but I think there's some physical element.

The guide is now live on the front page of wannawanga!
So if you're anything like me, you forget to bookmark pages, and you frequently have to go searching for information on this saber or that saber. For awhile I've been wishing there was a master thread or site that had all the information the RPF has come up with on lightsabers. Like Parts of Star Wars, but something lightly more updated than a geocites page.
I decided to make my own wish come true. After doing the lightsaber tree I had all the photos and information at hand-- but what that chart lacked was the lore. I put all these things together and decided to make an all-inclusive, cover every OT saber ever guidebook that talks about the props, their history, their individual parts and accompany it all with the highest res bestest photos I could find.
Before I go unleashing it to the world, I have shown it to some of the vets here for input, and now I'm hoping to sort of beta-test it with the rest of the RPF.
See anything that needs correcting? Anything to fight over? Post it!
I hope you all dig it:
