DARTH VADER LIGHTSABER - EPIII
Once a Jedi Knight and a hero revered throughout the Republic, Anakin Skywalker forsakes all that he once held dear when he becomes the evil Sith apprentice Darth Vader. Lured to the dark side by promises of absolute power, the fallen hero betrays his fellow Jedi, his friends and even his beloved Padme when he becomes the very enemy he once swore to defeat.
Now, as a disciple of evil, Vader executes the Emperor's every command and annihilates all who stand in the way of his master's schemes. On the volcanic world of Mustafar, Vader confronts his former mentor Obi-Wan Kenobi and is left for dead. When he arises from the fateful encounter, he find himself more machine than man, encased in the signature black armor that will come to strike fear and terror throughout the galaxy.
NOW, you get the chance to own an exact replica of Darth Vader's signature, red-bladed weapon, copied directly from the actual movie prop held in the Lucasfilm Ltd., archives.
BEHIND THE SCENES - Of all of the lightsabers seen in the Star Wars saga, Darth Vader's has undergone the most changes. Each time the prop has appeared in previous filmed episodes it has differed in detail with many versions, both hero and stunts being made.
In Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, the prop department has taken previous versions of Vader's iconic weapon of ultimate evil and amalgamated them seamlessly into one.
Machined from aluminum, with accented copper and aluminum details, the saber features a gloss black mid band and shroud that approximate the antique camera flash of the original classic trilogy prop. Seven hand grips, a stepped end cap, and a unique laser etched design in the control box top ensure that this version of Vader's weapon retains a familiar profile while making it, once again, unique in its own right.
To recreate our Darth Vader Episode III: Revenge of the Sith Lightsaber, Lucasfilm. Ltd., gave Master Replicas access to an actual filming prop to reference, enabling our engineers to exactly reproduce every detail and dimension so that we might offer you the definitive replica of this sure-to-be classic weapon.
We hope you will proudly display the Master Replicas Darth Vader Episode III Limited Edition Lightsaber in your collection for many years to come.
