View Full Version : Anakin Gives Luke his Blue Light saber

11-12-2002, 05:44 PM
I wonder how this happens, if you see Anakins lightsaber in AOTC its similar to the one used by luke in ANH but not the same, the one in ANH is all silver. When Obi Wan said " your father wanted you to have it" I think in EP3 Anakin creates a new saber, the one Luke uses in ANH\TESB. I wonder how what happened. Any theories?

Well after seeing Episode 2 I noticed that Anakin does seem to go thru his lightsabers pretty quickly.:)

Obi probably said "Your father wanted you to have this." because it was better to say that at the time than "I took it from him after I mutilated his ass.":D He wanted Luke not to know about Vader. He wanted him to admire Anakin his true father.:saberb:

"I took it from him after I mutilated his ass."
:rofl: :rofl: :rofl:
He wanted Luke not to know about Vader. He wanted him to admire Anakin his true father
Hm... I have my own theories about why Obi-Wan didn't tell Luke the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. It has to do with Obi being an embittered old man who wanted to erradicate his greatest mistake. Was the old man really as noble as he seems? :eyes8:

Well, we also saw in the droid foundry scene that anakin gets his original lightsaber chopped into two pieces. So he'll obviously need to construct a new one.

Posted this in another thread, thought it relevant here:

My opinion on the Anakin wanting Luke to have his lightsabre:
- While still a Jedi (or padawan, whatever), Anakin, knowing Padme to be pregnant, expresses that he'd like his child to be a Jedi as well. Then he turns bad, Obi Wan ends up with his sabre somehow (likely after kicking his @$$) and expresses Anakin's wishes to Luke.

edit: spelling and clarification

Anakin also says "Oh no, not again! Obi-Wan's gonna kill me..." wich means that him getting his lightsaber destroyed has happened before, so it wasn't his original saber.

ok let's look at this logically. Ben tells Luke "your father wanted you to have this when you were old enough" now we know that in AOTC that in the foundry that Anikin's sabre get's chopped like a tomato for a salad. Now what is the most logical scenario?

Anikin's last light sabre while he is still a jedi is given to Luke. End of story.

Actually, I'm not sure Anakin ever knows he has a son or that Padme is pregnant until he hears the name LUKE SKYWALKER after the Battle of Yavin. And his "last" saber is technically the one he fights Luke with.

i think they meant the last lightsaber he made as a jedi, not a sith.

Hey, is it just me, or does his sith saber look EXACTLY the same as his jedi saber...just darker? Someone ponder on this.

Anakin makes 2 different lightsabres. Before EP4 (possibly 3) he has his lightsabre with the round pipe being silver.

After EP4 or 3. That pipe is black but all the same. Apart from that.

Have a look in the AOTC Visual Dictionary and the Trilogy one. It tells you about them and has some pics.

They are different but only slightly.

I think i agree with boinga. Anakin didn't know that padme was pregnant, so anakin never wanted his son to have his lightsaber cus he never even knew that he had a son. :p

I think the issue of saber hilts has slipped past LF quality control several times over the years. I must bring up that the saber hilt changes very much from ANH to ESB, and also Mace Windu picked up a new blade for Episode 2. My guess is that they update from time to time. Others pick one and stick with it. It could also have something to do with the fact that Annakin's saber was smashed to pieces in the Genosian Droid Plant, but hey what do I know?

it's apparant that he constructs a new lightsaber before his final fall to the darkside and that is the one that Obi-Wan says that he wanted Luke to have

01-18-2003, 01:27 PM
My theory is Anakin's saber was destroyed in AOTC so he constructs a new one which we will see in Ep3. After his fight with Obi-Wan, Obi picks up Anakins saber and that is the one that he gives to Luke. He only says 'Your father wanted you to have this' because he is trying to get Luke to become a Jedi and if Luke new the truth, he might want to join his father instead.

At the end of AOTC where did Anakins saber come from? Only earlier he had it smushed, but all of a sudden he has a new saber? I can't remember seeing someone else give him one :confused: I'm sure someone must have given Ani one I just don't remember it

01-18-2003, 08:54 PM
Yes someone gave a light saber to him and obi. who, i'm not sure. but i know that it's when they ride the reek and some jedi throws to obi and ani a lightsaber.

01-18-2003, 08:55 PM
Oh yeah that's right I totally forgot- memory lapse

04-17-2003, 11:45 AM
I once thouht that Obiwan took Anakins sabre fomr him after their duel and made that bit up about your father wanting you to have this but i now believe that when they fight Anakin will already be a sith so he must then have red lightsaber (the code of the sith forbids any other colour).

So i know think among the lines of when Anakin finds out Padme is preggers he says i want me son to be a Jedi if i die give him this lightsaber blah blah blah, as he may have more than one.

Of course old Ben might have just made it all up to get Luke's interest arroused, we will see!!

Check this site out: http://www.thelightsaber.com/history1.htm
Its by no means official, but it does have a lot of good information about the history of lightsabers. I think they did a good job of tracking this history of Anakin/Vader's saber though the years. Lots of pictures too, I like the pictures.

04-20-2003, 05:05 AM
I think (im proberly not right here) that after Anakin and Obi have the fight and Anakin Gets his ass kicked Obi takes his lightsaber.
Then he says ''your farther wanted to have this'' instead of telling him that he just kicked his ass and took it so he *didnt hate him..* And Anakin didnt know about luke
Much like some of your Thourghts :saberb:

Yeah, well this kinda things happen when you do Episode IV,V+VI before I, II + III.
There is no explaination except they'll give one in Episode III I guess.
