    thanks for clarifying, and I am very excited if the OT prop book comes to fruition.

    I have the costumes book here and it does need a mate

    Slide 63 "Wired" resin ROJ Luke - cast off the "V3" lightsaber. Several of these were made - some sleeved for use on the R2 air-cannon rig. Some not sleeved; used for the shot where Luke throws it down in the throne room, and tucked into the fabric belt when he swings off Jabba's barge.
    My last question, does anyone know what "sleeved" means?

    Sleeved meaning there's a metal tube inserted in them that mated perfectly with the launch tube on the air cannon rig. The rig is present at the archives as well.

    Thanks to @vader45 for this...

    Vader ROTJ promo shot.



    While you can't make out much detail of the lightsaber, you can see two good ol MPP port holes... which the MoM/stunt/Faux hero does not have.

    Vader with belt hanger in ROJ. I think a better color version of this shot has been posted to the RPF in the past.

    For half a second Han's pant stripes told my brain there was a lightsaber hanging beneath his hand in a mirror image of Luke's stance and lightsaber! Time for bed I think.

    Just found this (in SW archives plans and concept from JW Rinzler book), and it's the very first time that i saw it. Don't know if this is the case or if it has already been post in this thread.

    Sorry for the poor quality, took it with my smartphone

    It seems that in the dagobah cave scene (i think bts stunt scene ? because i never saw it even on a screencap), Mark Hamill used a stunt v2 like.

    I really like the idea that it could be the anh Obi wan stunt, that became the rotj v2

    Also, the emitter seems to already have the scratched black paint.

    Mark

    Nice!

    There's lots of pics of the shared stunts being used during rehearsal in ESB, both on the Bespin set as well as pre-production. This is the first time I've seen it on Dagobah though!

    That definitely looks like the V2's paint on the emitter face.

    I’m stoked to hear that the textured tape was actually in place in preparation for Jedi. I had wondered about that after our lengthy discussion but seemed like a fools errand without greater access. What a cool revelation. Thanks for all the info, Brandon, et al.

    Here is the larger color version of that photo that Brandon posted earlier. Is that the MPP plate on there or is that just something totally random?

    I think it's the wires in the ports.

    I really need to get those Rinzler books.

    The picture i posted is from this one.

    I also have the third Rinzer's book about ANH/ESB/ROTJ, but didn't notice that.

    After my post, i found the info that the obi wan shared stunt (incoming v2) was used many times BTS during ESB while stunt training. But it's the first time i can see it on stage (even if it looks like a preproduction scene)

    Hmm, it's not exactly the V2's weathering. this COULD be the shared stunt (v3) or a less-beat-up V2.

    i am in Love with this picture thank you!
