    I noticed this years ago but have never our any info on this.

    During the duel between Lord Vader And Master Obi Wan for a brief second you can see The blue an red swap.

    The Blue saber becomes red and the Red becomes blue. Not sure if it's been corrected in the rereleases or if anyone else has noticed this or heard an explanation.

    Cheers Chappy ^_^

    What version are you watching? Blu Ray? 2004 SE, 1997 SE, or Original Recipe?

    I'm thinking you're probably right, likely with an earlier release. Sifting through my memories, I recall noticing something like that. Can't remember definitively though.

    Not sure which version I saw it in. Most probably one of the early edits...

    There is a green/yellow spark of light whenever the sabers touch... It's not that.

    At some point the colours get mixed and swap for a few frames lol.

    Dunno if anyone can find a screen of it...?

    I know what you're talking about, and have seen pictures, but I think it was fixed for the 2004 DVD.

    Nope, in the DVDs there are three moments when the colour is swapped. Don't know if it has been fixed in the Blurays

    I remember seeing a vid on Youtube about this exact error, but I'm too lazy to look it up right now lol. But it DOES exist
