    Just finished to read. Congratulations! Amazing work!!! and thanks for sharing!
    Really intersting that everyone consider the ROTJ Vader saber as its Hero saber when we know that it is just a stunt saber already used by Luke as stunt saber in the past!
    so the Hero ROTJ Vader saber is the same that ESB excepted that we never see it on screen, only on promo pics...

    It's hard to say which ESB stunt it was, there were probably a few.

    This one appears to have a black clamp.

    You can catch it on Dagobah too-- see page 15 of the book. It very well could be the same black band as the Vader stunt.

    I think that’s graffers tape we are all seeing, it is on the same saber today in the archives, right?

    Looks like an MPP clamp with bubbles in it to me.

    Chaim was referring to Luke’s, not Vader’s saber.

    I agree that the Vader has bubbles.

    Oh, duh, yeah.

    Could be. It's really hard to tell. I don't see the circles that are present in the RotJ Vader box, but it's so low res I don't know if you could see them anyway.

    I agree ... yet what's most disturbing is that since ESB is my favourite SW movie, still Uncle George managed to fool me and so many of us with these hero vs stunt sabers ... even now ... as soon the story gripes you again, you quickly loose interest in what props you are actually seeing on screen

    They may be deceiving you. That black clamp box is wider than the switch on the current configuration. I think thats the Gaffer tape Brandon talked about, looks to be about a half inch wide, maybe even without the card, since there's a sunken area in the center.

    I was reading the book and noticed that it said it was recently discovered that the closeup shot showing the Folmer stamp in the Wampa cave was actually a stunt saber. Is there more information on when/how this was discovered? I'm curious to read more about it.

    Banged up grips, and the possibility of the stunt blade being buried in the snow, and moved by hand on the other side of the pile

    My screen-capping software doesn't want to work with TLJ. Anybody want to hook my up with some nice HD shots of Kylo Ren's saber? Specifically, a shot of the moment it stiops spinning on the floor after Snoke makes Rey drop it would be great.

    From 4K BluRay (uding my PC and UHD 1080p monitor). It's darker than normal 1080p BluRay but Q is better.

    WOW that is one hell of a detailed lightsaber PDF!!!

    I’m wondering if anyone had high resolution photos of the Master Replicas blueprints? They are HARD to find.

    @SethS going through the book the other day. Shouldn't this say "Yuma Stunt"? Just wondering, since the other resin V3 stunt doesn't have a nipple on the end of the emitter. The Yuma however does have a nipple.

    Also on the V3 resin stunt. Is that the saber that Luke tosses at the end of his duel with Vader? Considering it's chipped off on the end.
