The lightsaber for Obi-Wan Kenobi in Episode II is an interesting example of the development process of movie prop replicas. Designs for each of the lightsaber props are created by the design group led by Doug Chiang, and then submitted to George Lucas for approval. In this case, Ewan McGregor, the actor playing Obi-Wan Kenobi, participated in the choice of the lightsaber design for his character in Episode I.
Another intriguing aspect of the development process was the evolution of Obi-Wan's lightsaber from Episode I to Episode II. As Obi-Wan's Episode I lightsaber was lost during the battle with Darth Maul, there are a few subtle difference on the Episode II version to underscore that Obi-Wan built a new lightsaber modeled after the old one. For instance, the hero lightsaber featured in Episode I was machined in metal. However, the hero lightsaber featured in Episode II has the notably different look of a bright chrome-plated finish. These two lightsabers also differ in several small, yet distinctive details:
The pommel 'cubes' on the Episode I lightsaber were triangluar not
cubical (which was first believed) with small holes through them.
However, on the Episode II lightsaber the cubes are also triangular but
did not have holes through them.
On the Episode I lightsaber, the three LEDs near the emitter have clear
lenses in the center. On the Episode II lightsaber though, these LEDs are
On the Episode I prop, it was first believed that a bicycle air valve adapter
was used as a control switch, but have later found out it was a custom
knurled piece. The Episode II version of the prop featured a
custom-made control switch as well, but was smooth rather than
Most likely, the prop for Episode 2 was just a cast of the Episode 1 prop. Since Ewan had more action scenes with his saber, the casted version would have been a better choice than the heavier metal piece.
Incorporating all of the details noted above, Master Replicas has created a faithful reproduction of the Obi-Wan lightsaber from Episode II. MR is very proud of this replica and it will be a prized addition to your Star Wars collection.
