Is it true that on the trailor for Return Of The Jedi, that when Luke is using his lightsaber on the Skiff it is blue and not green? If so did you expect it when you saw the finished movie and did you like the idea at first?

Yes it's true that on the trailer Luke's L-saber is blue. When I first saw ROTJ I had no idea that there could be green sabers. It was either blue or red when playing with friends. The good guy always had blue. When seeing the green it was AMAZING and totaly a suprise. I always used green in my games as a child after that, but I prefere blue again now :).

The later trailer for ROTJ had Luke with a green saber but I never saw that trailer until after seeing the movie so the suprise wasn't ruined.

Yep, originally Luke's saber was going to be blue just like his first one. But then Lucas decided to change it to green, because it didn't show up very good against the blue sky of Tatooine. That's why the vintage figure originally shipped with a blue lightsaber. And now you know, the rest of the story. :D

Thanks Pendo! I was just about to ask if anyone had a picture, it looks quite odd now seeing that. And it looks alot more like the Episode I and II lightsabers.

wow. i never knew that. well i'm glad lucas decided on another color. to bad he wont change his mind on other colors. yellow? orange?
like yellow could be the apprentice sith color and red is the master sith color.
maybe not, but i like the idea.
