i was watching this video on youtube and found out some interesting facts...:

-Luke's lightsaber (and Vader's) were made from the rod of the flashpan of an old camera!!
-Obi's lightsaber was made from KITCHEN SINK PARTS and a HAND GRENADE!
-Stormies' guns were slightly modified old german machine guns!


I dont know about you guys, but this is news to me lol...talk about low Budget movies!! (BTW lukes original lightsaber costs around 1000 dollars on ebay)

Actually it was the British-made Sterling L2A3 sub-machine gun, but Han's DL-44 was made from a German Mauser pistol.

Crying Ahhhhh, you beat me to it ARC Trooper. BigGrin I had heard about that in a behind the scenes show on Spike. ThumpUp Thought that was a cool little known fact. I'm kind of a military history buff.

@ luke hates thrawn: i meant by ghetto that the movie was a such a low budget movie they didnt have enough money to custom make one of the most famous guns known in movies. Blink BigGrin i think that's hilarious

though i must say that the hand-grenade part of obi's ligtsaber in episode IV is pretty cool...i mean, if obi has no choice, just chuck his lightsaber and BOOM! LOL

I was excited when they were talking about how Luke's lightsaber was just a camera part, and figured I could pick it up online for cheap, but $1,000 certainly does not qualify as cheap, lol. I think I'll be going the sink drain route, a la Obi-Wan. =P

I actually had the camera rod and flash rod that was very similar to the one Lucas used. I was working on a house and saw it in the trash. this was almost 10 years ago. Like a dummy , I gave it to my buddy who was really into Star Wars. He said he wanted to make the lightsaber like the original. I liked SW at the time but wasn't into collecting. WHAT A DUMMY! It's sitten up in his attic collecting dust. I swear i feel like being an Indian giver and asking for it back. It's really awesome looking. I will take pictures of it if I get the Guts to ask for it back!

The OP wasn't entirely wrong though. The T-21 Light Repeating Blaster is in fact a modified German MG-34. Also, I'm not sure, but I think the E-WEB blaster is a modified MG-42, but don't quote me on that.

I recognized the Mauser as soon as I saw it, all they did was put a cap on the barrel and didnt put a magazine in it.

The MG34 and the MG42 are aesthetically the same thing. I don't believe the E-Web was specifically based on anything.

You might be able to find a deactivated one at a surplus store. I live near a base, so I can get a whole bunch of cool stuff. I actually know an Ex-IDF guy that has a cell phone jammer for sale.

Agree with the jamming device idea. The gadget can actually be practical if used properly.
