View Full Version : Maces changing saber!

In the ep2 scene when Mace first confronts Dooku at the Geonosis arena and ignites his saber in front of the Fetts his saber changes color! Its when the battle droids come up behind him and open fire. When he delfects the shots his saber is blue! Its still blue in a couple shots after. And then it becomes purple again when hes on the arena floor. I know Im seeing right and my TV is not screwed up. It cant be a blooper cause George is such a perfectionist and its checked again when it goes to dvd right?

This may support the theory of the Form 7 fighting style. Since it is very close to the Dark side and red combined with blue is purple. When Mace uses form 7 he also uses some of the Dark side. And since the bad guys use red sabers, perhaps the red is caused by the Dark. Red + blue is purple. Thats the theory. Its not MY theory but its a reasonable one.

I think that perhaps it is just a blooper but ya never know. Im sure other people have noticed this. My TV isnt that big and I know plenty of you have bigger ones. The blue saber shot is also in one of the trailers. It might be Mystery.

I just watched that Arena Part right now. It does look like blue for like a second. But I put it on slow motion and it is purple. Weird:confused: But it is purple and not blue.

The other colours around the lightsaber blade can effect the look of the glow. I agree: it does look blue for a brief second, but in slow motion Mace Windu uses a purple-bladed weapon all the time.

Talking about lightsaber screw-ups, Ki-Adi Mundi needs to get his eyes fixed. During the massive ground battle, he uses a blue-bladed lightsaber to fend off droids and Geonosians. However, when the gunships arrive, he can be seen behind Anakin using a green lightsaber. Suddenly, he's on the gunship deflecting lasers... with a blue lightsaber! Something is not right here.

Just beomce a Sith, then you have only one colour to worry about... :saberr:

Yep, you are all right, it does look blue for a moment. Strange! I think it is the movement of the saber that effects the colour we see because alot of the blue sabers looked purple during the arena battle too! :confused:

It might look blue for a second......but like CD 2 said the other colors effect how it look. It could just be something as simple as a reflection from the sunlight? But even so.......it only last for a second. :) We know that his blade is purple :D

Yes but reason in the sun, it looked like green sabers were gold, so it has to do with the surroundings as weel;
