In Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, Luke's lightsaber prop was created from an antique flashgun. Seven T-shaped grips were added to the lower circumference and a 1970's calculator display component topped off the "control box." A simple picture hanger D-ring riveted to the bottom allowed the weapon to be worn on a belt loop. So was born the iconic Skywalker lightsaber.
As is usual on movies, several versions of this prop were built. Having been previously released in the Elite Edition series a version of this weapon as seen in post-production publicity photographs featuring the "control box" mounted opposite to how it appeared in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, Master Replicas are proud to present the screen used version to complete your collection.
Crafted from machined and extruded aluminum and brass, with co-molded injection grips and injection molded plastic parts, your replica lightsaber is copied from a direct study of an original flashgun and original sourced parts used on the filming prop. In a 2005 auction an original Luke Skywalker ANH Lightsaber prop sold for over $200,000. MR and TSV hope you enjoy your replica of such a famous and expensive movie prop for years to come.
