Faithful recreation of the iconic lightsaber prop used by Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope.Thrown together with WWII grenades, camera flash parts, jet engine pipes and even tap heads, the original lightsaber, weilded by Alec Guinness in 1977, has such a rich and interesting history. This has been meticulously re-created after countless hours pouring over reference photos, movie clips and forum posts, designed to be as close to the original screen-used prop as plastic will allow.

This is an entirely original 3D design, created by myself, mostly in response to the unfaithfulness of the models currently floating around the internet. Missing details or inaccuracies are fixed here, the Graflex font, the line details, the vertical cut in the gold shaft, the floating transistor buttons, the tap head pommel details, dimensions dimensions dimensions, everything has been accurately mimicked to give an honest representation of the screen-used prop.

The lightsaber is designed to be entirely hollow throughout, cutting down on weight (great for cons), but also allowing you the benefit of installing LED's, speakers, logic boards, or even simply weighting it to feel like a true Jedi weapon. The saber is also designed to be screwed together (no glue needed!), with threads in each sections, allowing you to easily disassemble and reassemble the prop at any point, again, to facilitate the instillation of electronics, though its also great for painting and excitable mock ups.
