Well I was there the day they shot the footage on R2 shooting the lightsaber. I even have Super 8 footage of it happening. And they fired at least four different sabers. I only have one take. They didn't run down and collect them after each take, they had several they could fire. This could be one.
I've handled one of the R2 domes that seller sold a while back and I was convinced it was genuine.
But how a guy in England got his hands on a saber that was used in the desert in California, kind of a mystery.
