Anyone else notice this?
 
I have a Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi poster, and I like to look at it (to see the details) and I noticed something. The stance Luke and Vader are in is the same stance they're in when they dueled on Bespin. Check the comparison:

Yep.

Rev7 11-11-2008 09:51 PM

Yeah...

It's the same...

GeneralPloKoon 11-11-2008 10:52 PM

Somebody got sloppy...

GwannaSauna 11-12-2008 07:28 PM

Darn.... :(

Not to mention, Luke has a blue saber XD

Fredi 11-28-2008 10:13 PM

yup, I noticed that.

I have a lot of similar mistakes in my SW collection!

That's because they've changed the lightsaber colour at the last minute.

Oh.

Get your money back.

Pho3nix 12-13-2008 08:48 AM

That's the special edition poster though, they should have fixed it by now.

Litofsky 12-13-2008 09:35 AM

The poster shown also has a date of "March 14th, 1997," so (LucasFilm) should've fixed that by then. :/

M@RS 12-13-2008 12:36 PM

I don't see the first picture... Wonder why...

LordOfTheFish 12-13-2008 05:08 PM

They obviously don't care enough to fix it. :dozey:

Rinku 12-14-2008 09:23 PM

Someone forgot to use photoshop...

CommanderQ 12-14-2008 09:50 PM

Yeah, I noticed that flaw on the Return of the Jedi thingy, if you look on the poster for Empire Strikes Back: Special Edition, you will see that the Return of the Jedi's Emperor is there.

Chevron 7 locke 12-14-2008 10:56 PM

Indeed I did.

hhunter6 12-19-2008 03:01 PM

when they had the first poster with the title Revenge of the Jedi they used the same stance. Luke's blade was also blue. And when they went to the 1983 poster his blade was still blue. alexrdias is right. they chaged it at the last minute because the blue blades were not showing up in post producing against the desert backgrounds. Maybe they haven't changed it to keep something close to the originals. who knows. Does it really matter though?

spartan181 02-24-2009 09:02 PM

Yeah I noticed that too and on one of the 20th anniversary tapes I have has Ian McDiarmid's face on The Empire Strikes Back and Ian McDiarmid was not the Emperor in TESB. It was some other guy in which the Emperor only had a brief appearence in a hologram.

Notice Luke's pistol on his right hip... He doesn't use a pistol in Return of the Jedi at all, let alone armed with one during his final fight with Vader.

He does use it when he goes after Leia and the droids. he draws it out.
And he's still a rebel commander in this time...which can be clearly seen by his rebel jumpsuit and equipment.

LordJhredmo 03-25-2009 03:06 PM

Which scene does he draw it? I can't remember.

Blix 03-25-2009 04:09 PM

I don't think i've ever noticed that one before O.o

adamqd 03-25-2009 04:24 PM

I noticed that in 1997, although I'm unsure as to why they continued to use it as they had screenshots of ROTJ, and they had changed Luke's blade to green by the release in 83... so bit of a goof, although there are quite a lot of goofs in Star wars hehe.

Sorry if this spoils anything but watch closely during the Palpatine/Sidious VS Mace fight in Revenge of the Sith, Sidious is using Anakins hilt throughout the fight (It was originally meant to be that Sidious took Skywalkers blade and killed the Masters while he was present, but they decided to give Sid his own hilt)

That's extremely interesting! Thank you for that piece of trivia. I'm going to remember that.

By the way, where did you get that information? IMDB or where?

Thanks!

The hilt it's self is plain to see, but I'm sure it's on the text or spoken commentary for the Ep III DVD, or one of the behind the scenes feature's. But it was also answered in a Star Wars Insider Q+A too. I'll have a look and let ya know

Yeah, about that, the Game Boy Advance video game, Star Wars Apprentice of the Force has that flaw that you are able to use the blaster during the final fight with Vader (not that it will do any good).
