In the Star Wars films not only do they make multiple copies of the props we see on screen, but different versions as well. These are divided into two categories commonly called "Hero" and "Stunt." Hero props are made for close-ups and promotional pictures. Most of the time when a lightsaber is ignited on screen, it is a stunt version of the hilt. These propss are cast in resin from the hero prop then painted to look just like the hero prop. They are lighter and easier to wield while filming action scenes. In the case of the stunt lightsabers, there is usually a rod attached to the hilt so that the actors can actually duel and make contact with the blades. These rods are also invaluable reference points for the F/X technicians. This stunt lightsaber is a faithful replica of the hero prop used by Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace and comes with a unique lightsaber and plaque stand to display your replica.
