i just meant people who watched the film swearing it was yellow through association.
"Is that a Lightsaber Greedo, or are you just really happy to see me?"
It could be Yoda too.
George didn't get the memo from Kenner and so of course, he messed it up in the movies. It was supposed to be yellow all along.
I did not know that.
That would explain why he has a limp and has to use the cane.
^ More like a third leg.
Anybody ever try SWAPPING-out those arm-sleeve sabers?
Marker-colored toothpick replacements were NOT the same.
You cut it off.........BANG?!
(the bang was me falling off my chair haha)
I've even seen them sold like that at collectors fairs - usually matchsticks.
Kenner's most well-known blunder with colors was the blue Snaggletooth, which was because the reference picture was in black and white.
As for the saber, I assume it's because early promotional pics used a white/yellow colored saber, which was the result of the effect being unfinished. See 1:02 and 1:25 in the trailer:
Aww, they didn't show the stormtrooper hitting his head
I iz disappoint
Yes, this makes the most sense re: why the lightsaber was yellow instead of the correct blue. As has been said, the tall, blue snaggletooth is another result of their not having the most accurate references when creating the figures.
Ironic that these these iconic Vintage ANH SW toys weren't even in the film...
I am not entirely sure that that is in fact a lightsaber
Check out Farm boy Lukes feet compared to Bespin Lukes, they've grown like 5 sizes....what went on in the Dagobah swamps for that to happen????!
I have no idea why, and I also had one of the full size yellow lightsaber back in the day, and obviously no one in the OT had yellow.
