    Wow! I never noticed how small Palpatines saber hilt actually was.

    Talking about stepping up, way to go Danny!
    The guy I do a lot of work for, he brought over his MR sidious . Itís a baby compared to every other saber.

    i honestly cant tell ya seth. it looks like the ROTJ vader saber, but has a MPP clamp and circuit card. i have seen this saber before on display at celebrations (ive never attended, ive only seen other peoples photos) and i figured it was a replica

    you can see it far right, looks like it has the nail as a lever, is this the original clamp from the ANH saber?

    That's the Barbican saber. First seen at the location it's named for. Seems to be a promo saber, or a take on a stunt saber very late in SW. not seen on film. The energizer saber, graflex slave sabers all seem to get their design from this.

    i was wondering if it was related to the energizer saber because it looked similar

    odd looking hilt. Looks too shaped to be machined. Is this made from found parts. To me, it kind of looks like a big fishing lure

    probably sculpted, cast in aluminum and then clean dup by hand. i thought the same thing when he brought it over, trying to figure out its construction. figured its cast in metal and cleaned by hand. its very very heavy, and i mean romans ANH obi wan heavy! i was afraid to touch it because it leaves fingerprints everywhere

    That' pretty heavy. Does anyone have background info on this? The reason I went went a lure is because it looks like an eye on the top near the emitter. Also, the emitter looks like a cap sitting on the hilt section. The rear has the screw looking part that could have been where the hooks attached

    I think it's completely hand sculpted, & then cast & painted. Don't think there's any "real world" anything in it. I own it (I'm being exceedingly lazy, being buried under blankets & a cat right now, don't wanna get up & take photos), & completely agree about the finger print comment. If you don't wear gloves to handle it, you'll have to polish it before putting away. The paint on is beautiful. It is hefty, but I don't know if it's Romans ANH Obi-Wan hefty. Although, it's been a while since I've even touched it.

    Palpatine's lightsaber from RotS?

    As far as I know, it was like all the other hilts made for production and was a custom piece the prop department made. The two button "eyes" on the hilt are LED's and the other bits and bobs on it are probably either custom machined or sourced someplace. Considering that Palpatine was only given a lightsaber quite literally at the last minute, I would presume much of the original construction was first sculpted (likely in 3D and then printed), cleaned up and given a custom paint scheme. I don't know if it was made in metal, I presume not, as many of the other PT sabers, especially in the later movies, were actually plastic/rubber and chromed (in a bonus feature on the DVD's, one the prop guys remarks how incredible the technology has come for them to chrome rubber) but that's not to say it may not contain some metal parts.

    Between the two of his lightsabers, I much prefer the one he fights/uses with Yoda.

    Dern it! I was digging through old photos, looking for my photos of MOM Tour I went to back in the 90's. I was looking for close-ups of the sabers they had on display. But they're mostly wide shots ! God, what an idiot I was! I know they had the Barbican on display, & I think I read somewhere that the one inside the Luke costume display was the reveal lightsaber (just that nobody knew). They also had the one that Halliwax has a beautiful shot of in post #32.

    I read somewhere that for the 2015 release of Star Wars Battlefront they were going to be scanning in props and costumes into the game for more authenticity. Looks like they got a hold of the Lukeís V2
