STAR WARS: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi Luke Skywalker Reveal Lightsaber Prop Replica

If you’re a STAR WARS fan then you already know about the scene in the 1983 film STAR WARS: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi where Luke Skywalker constructed a lightsaber in a cave on Tatooine. It was a scene that never made it to the screen after ending up on the cutting room floor.

Well, 27 years later, 1000 Limited Edition prop replica’s of that Lightsaber are getting released thanks to eFX Collectibles!  eFX manufactures and markets extremely high-quality, screen-accurate, limited edition prop replicas and collectibles from your favorite films, television, video games, and other entertainment media.

This Luke Skywalker Reveal Lightsaber Replica measures 11″ long (when closed) and is constructed in aluminum, brass, and copper, with screen-accurate LED effects of red and green arrows.

The weapon reproduction also features a glowing green crystal and comes on a numbered metal plaque with a certificate of authenticity.

Here’s the awesome story behind this Lightsaber:

Like Big Foot, the mystery surrounding this “missing scene” was so intriguing that it had become lore to Star Wars fans the world over. A lot of research by fans has been done, and little tidbits of information were found that may indicate the existence of this elusive scene, but there was nothing definitive. Even the storyboard that describes this scene was discovered, but there was still no evidence of the scene actually being filmed. Many believe that the lightsaber used in this scene may have been the weapon that is referred to as the “MOM” lightsaber, which is the one that was on display at the Star Wars: The Magic of Myth exhibit at the National Air and Space Museum in 1997-1999, and then in the touring exhibit. This lightsaber had an accessible control box with a removable PCB cover. It also had a hole near the pommel, possibly for the wires. Fast forward 27+ years to August 14, 2010 and Star Wars: Celebration V in Orlando, Florida. The mystery of the elusive missing scene was finally solved, and to the thunderous applause of the crowd, it was shown and announced that it will be edited back into the long-awaited Blu-ray Discs of the Star Wars Saga!

It’ll set you back $499.99 and will be available in January 2012, though tit can be pre-ordered now.

Here’s the link you need to get one (and I’m betting these will sell out fast):

STAR WARS Master Replicas Darth Vader Dual Signature Lightsaber

Another nice find on Australia’s Ebay site is this Rare (2002) Dual Signature Series 1:1 Scale Star Wars Episode 4 – A New Hope Darth Vader Lightsaber by Master Replicas and Lucasfilm

Recreated from original Lucasfilm archival materials, including a detailed examination of the original filming prop, this replica is identical in every respect to the lightsaber Darth Vader uses onscreen in Star Wars A New Hope.

It’s signed by James Earl Jones (voice of Darth Vader) and also signed by David Prowse (actor within the Darth Vader suit) with one plaque for each actor. Both are plaque 737 from the more desired Master Replicas Signature Series.

This very early and hard to find Master Replicas Lightsaber, made from machined die cast metal components, is one of the rare hand assembled crown jewels of any Master Replicas collection. It is one of the most iconic and favoured of all Star Wars lightsaber designs by far!

Included is the outer cardboard box and the inner black soft foam presentation lightsaber box and black sleeve cover.

The seller is advertising that nothing is missing, including envelope, care instructions and certificate of authenticity with photos of the actors at the signing event.

Also includes the signature plaques, the plaque stands, the custom designed Master Replicas display stand and acrylic dust cover.

STAR WARS EPISODE IV: A NEW HOPE Han Solo Blaster Prop Replica (Rare Master Replica’s Prototype)

STAR WARS fans! This is easily the best prop replica collectible I’ve posted since we launched the site. 

On Australian Ebay (but available for purchase worldwide) is a Super Rare PROTOTYPE 1:1 scale STAR WARS EPISODE IV – A NEW HOPE DL 44 Han Solo Blaster Prop Replica by Master Replicas.

It is one of the first Star Wars props Master Replicas released and now a mega-rare collectible.

Apparently these Han Solo Blaster Prototypes were ONLY released to members of the Master Replicas board of directors. I’ve marked this as a “one-of-a-kind” because while only 3 of these are known to exist the current owner states it may even be the only complete one because some Prototypes did not come with display cases or paperwork. This one is complete and Guaranteed an original!

This very first Master Replicas Blaster is the holy grail of Han Solo Blaster’s as being a prototype it is basically in a class of its own.

Recreated from original Lucasfilm archival materials, including a detailed examination of the original filming prop, this replica is identical in every respect to the Blaster Han Solo uses onscreen in STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE.

Hand assembled from machined die cast metal components, it features a working bolt action trigger/hammer and a precisely detailed German WWII scope.

Included is the foam presentation box and black sleeve cover!

All the paper work is included in the sale, including envelope, care instructions and Certificate of Authenticity. Also includes the Prototype plaque, the plaque stand, the custom designed Master Replicas blaster display stand and acrylic dust cover.

The seller claims it has been displayed in a glass cabinet free from dust in a pitch black, air-conditioned room and, most of all, that it is in mint condition, just like new.

It has never been handled by hands other than with cotton gloves when it first went on display and when it was packed up.

The bids started at only 99c, but as I write this they are up to $760. This is a high demand, rare collectible, so if you want it, this might be your only chance to get in and bid. The link you need is below (where you can also see a lot more images):
