I am a bit puzzled.

I just bought a Luke from someone on Ebay, I am waiting for it to be delivered but i was looking at the original pic and his light saber is kind of yellowish green lime colored. I always thought they were blue because of the reference here and form the countless ones i have seen on Ebay. I thought that the seller was selling me the one from Ben and it was just a question of the seller matching wrong accessories to complete the toy and i had not problem with that. So to be a proper completist on my Luke i won another Luke today and he has the blue saber.

But now i am all confused. I have just got on a sales' thread suggested here by a friend and lo and behold i am seeing yet another one of these green lime colored light saber associated to Luke by the seller. The ones i have seen more green than Yellow. I thought it was just again someone trying to sell a Ben saber with a Luke Figure. But because now it is the second time i see this i have my doubts that 2 person could have done the same kind of mismatch...

My question is now. Would Luke have another type of color for his light saber? Or is this just a Ben saber? Or is this a case of yellowing or some chemical reaction that caused the saber to go from blue to green?

And yes Luke has borrowed Han's shirt on one of them. Smile

Bud

Can you post better pics of the saber? It might help.

There is a repro yellow saber for 12" figures

When i get them i will post more pics of them.

I believe that the blue one is legit. The green one is very green limey and seems to be foggy but the seller was not peddling a lot of star wars stuff so i am pretty sure the saber is not a repro, but like i said i have to wait until they come in. If it ends up being a Ben saber that is legit then i ll be happy cause all i will have to look for is a Ben.

Man these 12" accessories seem hard to get. I am proud that i got the Luke with the grappling hook cause 99 percent of what i have seen of them don't have one or if someone sells one its like 50$ or something insane like that.

stay tuned. Smile

cheers!

Fingers crossed for you dude!

Just in case anyone is reading this who isn't familiar with the line, Luke is a blue Saber, Ben is yellow.

And yes both lightsabers have repros out there

here is a back pic of the toy from the auction... It probably is a Ben saber and the black Background is somehow changing the color, also might be a combination of light or flash that does this too since they are supposed to be semi translucent.... anyways when i get them i will submit plenty of pics of the different parts so you can maybe ad more details to the guide or even verify if mine are genuine sabers.


Cheers!

I guess under certain lighting condition Ben's light saber can turn into a glowstick green color hue.

Can you tell us what would be the difference between the repros and the real ones?
