For the dramatic father and son duel at the climax of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, Darth Vader, armed with his signature red-bladed lightsaber, faces off against his son, Luke Skywalker. Eagle eyed fans will notice however that the Dark Lord of the Sith's lightsaber has altered since its last appearance in the saga.
The prop used in the previous episode was no longer available, so the resourceful prop department took the similar looking Luke Skywalker stunt lightsaber from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, added a collar and changed the coloring at the top of the lightsaber to recreate the distinctive black emitter shroud of Vader's weapon. The fighting blade was cut down, leaving a protruding rod, and the mid-band altered to recreate the black activator panel. Further details were added to the neck area resulting is a similar, yet quite distinct representation of the last lightsaber ever wielded by Darth Vader before his redemption.
