I wonder what Vader did with it? Destroyed it?

Good question.

Maybe one of those little mouse droids got it an a routine garbage pick up. Or maybe a trooper or officer picked it up wondering what it was, then hit the switch....zzzzttttttcchhhhh....and fell into one of those ominous holes everywhere in the DS, and that was the end of it.

Or better yet, what ever happened to Luke's lightsaber after Vader cuts his hand off. Does Ash from AOD find it, "Oh, so theres where my hand went. Groovy. A lightsaber. Just what I need for slicing up deadites.":D :crazed:

Of course the grandaddy of all ANH mysteries, is what happened to the scanning crew guys, and the 2 stormtroopers that are ambushed inside the Falcon?

Are they still in those smuggling compartments picking space lint out of there belly buttons?

Where are they???:confused:

I don't think Ash used a lightsaber. Of course the mother of all inconsistancies in movies, where does Ash get his shotgun from after he gets out of the pit in AOD.

People, if you've seen the movie, you know what I'm talking about. Leaves the pit with only his chainsaw, does some stuff, scene switches to Arthur, then BOOM! He shoots Arthur's sword, without ever getting his shotgun.

"Well hello Mr. Fancypants!"

That's his "boomstick". You shouldn't be questioning Ash like that you "primitive".:p

I hope I am remembering both of these correctly, it's been sometime since I read alot of the old EU books and comics, and even the titles have slipped my mind. Ok, first of all, what happened to Obi-Wan's Lightsaber. Well, if you read expanded universe novels or comics at all, Obi Wan's Lightsaber was kept as a prize in Darth Vader's personal castle. I think that Luke discovered it along with quite a few others in one of the novels or comic books. I don't recall what he did with it, I think that one of the Solo children actually currently uses it/used it. Maybe Anakin Solo?

As fo Luke's lightsaber, the one that he looses in Empire Strikes Back when Vader cuts his hand off. This was explained in one of the novels, again I forget which one. After Luke and company's escape Vader had his Nogri search Cloud City for the hand and lightsaber. It was found in one of the smelting rooms like C-3PO was by Chewie. Vader was going to keep it, but was ordered by the Emporer to join him and hand over the lightsaber and hand. It was taken to Palpatine's secret cloning base, and a clone of Luke was created. Luke actually faught his double Luuke upon the discovery of the base and defeated him. Later he gave that old lightsaber to Mara Jade for her personal saber.

JarJarBinks (and everyone else), the Obi-Wan saber dealio is from the Junior Jedi Knights series, specifically Kenobi's Blade. I haven't read those yet, so the story arc may tie in with some of the other JJK books. I'm pretty sure Anakin only used it once and then turned it over to Luke, who keeps it as a relic.

Luuke Skywalker appears in The Last Command. There may be some mention of the saber in Dark Force Rising, too.

Thanks El Chuxter, like I said it's been a while since I have read any of the Star Wars novels. I don't think I have even read the JJK books at all, but I know that I heard the story of Kenobi's blade. I was recounting what I remembered. :) Thanks for the the information about the clone Luuke novel, I wanna re-read that one soon. Keep up the good work. :D

Mod's note: This post contains a very minor (but quite amusing) E2 spoiler ahead.

So if you clone the clone Luke, would he be Luuuke Skywalker? And would his clone be Luuuuke? Etc etc?

And why isn't Boba's name Jaango. Or Jangoo? HA HA Never mind. Saying Jangoo aloud, I understand why that's not his name, but....

And what about the thousands and millions of Clone Troopers??

Jaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaang o Fett?

Oh geez. A writer found a use for Luke's hand and lightsaber?

Anything to sell a book I suppose. :)

Then what was that thing that Luke saw falling into the clouds when he was hanging off that atennae in the movie? I thought that was his hand.

When I read the original post for this thread, I was going to make a joke about it...something about some evil guy finding the things and cloning and all that crap. And look...somebody really did it for real.

Oh brother.:rolleyes:

It was a congealed blob of Midichlorians that oozed out of Luke up on the gantry.:eek:

It's supposed to be part of the antenna that broke off when he hit it. After all, there were a ton of those vents that Luke got sucked in. And his hand fell long before he did, so it's a statistical implausibility that the hand would have ended up in the same exit tube, not to mention that it fell after he hit the vane. :)

Can anybody freeze frame it to see? If only it were on DVD then we could zoom in.

You can see it on pause on the VHS, I also thought it was luke's hand for the longest time till I looked closely at the VHS version - it's a piece of weather vane/antennae.

JJB, currently Anakin Solo isn't using ANYBODY'S lightsaber.:dead:

I think the whole "adding a vowel to the name of a clone" thing only applied to JEDI. Hence the whole clone trooper/you know who thing would not apply. Thank goodness. But then again...you never knooooooooow!:D

I actually LOVED the Zahn Trilogy. In fact the ONLY thing I didn't like was the Luuke clone.:rolleyes:

I never read the JJK series.

Yeah, killing off Anakin Solo was a lame plot twist. Here they kept trying to hint for years at the chance of him turning to the darkside, and instead he gets killed. :rolleyes: Chewbacca sure wasted his life saving that lil punk. :cry:

Not sure about the whole adding another vowel thing either, after all it's not Lucas cannon anyway. I take everything not in the movie as not only "expanded universe" but also an "elseworld tale". Easier that way, cause some of the stories are a little, well...weak.
