Has it ever been discussed.....

How did Obi-wan get back his lightsaber? (The one which Darth Maul kicked down the generator shaft)

And what happened to Qui-Gon's lightsaber?

Since Qui-Gon's lightsaber was not his lightsaber, I wouldn't doubt Obi-Wan would build himself a new one, especially since Qui-Gon's lightsaber if kinda dull compared to Obi-Wan's. :D
As for Qui-Gon, it was probably put with his ashes in some Jedi thing or just put in some Jedi thing.

This is a pretty controversial subject. If you watch in TPM where Panaka says you can kiss your trade franchise goodbye, or something like that, you can see Obi-Wan wearing his saber when he walks towards Palpetine. It's clearly visible if you do a frame by frame on the DVD. Now some people say it could have simply been an accident. Seeing that scenes of films are never shot in order, it might have been worn by mistake. Those are the people that generally believe he built another one with the same design. Now other's say somebody went down and got it. Maybe a coroner or someone could have when they went to get Mual's body. I myself am still up in the air about it, only the people at Lucasfilm know for sure.

Obi-wan is walking with HIS lightsaber? Is that what you are saying? I will have to get out the old dvd and watch it this very evening!

Could've been like the Mace situation at the end, maybe when they shot the scene they couldn't get any Qui saber hilt props there and so they tried to hide Obi-Wan's but they wanted it to look like he had a lightsaber on him.

whether it is a new one, or he retrieved his original one, i still think he should be using qui-gon's saber. i know EU isn't official, but obi-wan is clearly using qui-gon's saber in a post E1 book, and i think it would show his former master respect by continuing to use his saber.

Maybe he, or some Naboo public worker went down to the bottom of the shaft and got it (and probably cleaned up what was left of Darth Maul too.). Sometimes the simplest explanations make the most sense.

Maybe he used the force to get it from the bottom like when Luke was stuck in the Wampa thing and he used the force to get his back.

Yeah, but Luke's saber was only like a foot away...while the pit could be miles deep. Yoda never said, "Distance matters not." :D

Obi-Wan's new lightsaber replaces the one he lost in the fight with Darth Maul. It is almost identical to the previous one.

Or maybe he just took the elevetor to the bottom floor and picked it up.

I always assumed that the Jedi and maybe Naboo officials went down to the bottom of the shaft and found Mauls body and Obis lightsaber.

I don't know why, but when Mace Windu tells Yoda "There's no doubt that the warrior was a Sith..." I figured that meant that they had retrieved his body and examined him.

I read that as well. I was hoping someone had posted that in this thread.

yes, i know it's another question on lightsaber, but i wanted to know this very badly. does obi-wan loose it during the fight with the massiffs or does he break it? it's obviously one of the two, but i can't figure out which?....

It gets confiscated when he's captured by the Geonosians. I'm pretty sure he got it back after they won the battle. :)

Okay, but how the hell did he manage to make one EXACTLY like his first one? Or, maybe he got it from the core shaft thing, but that's just stupid, so what's the deal?

I'm trying to figure out if they're ever going to show him with the ANH lightsaber handle. Plus Anakin has to at some point have one like Luke's in ANH. It's is Luke's father's lightsaber after all. Are these things ever going to be taken into consideration or just glossed over and become a part of an ever-increasing list of contradictions?

Does the ANH match the one he had in the arena battle?

I don't think so. I'll have to go check again (which I won't mind of course :D ) but I'm pretty sure it wasn't.

You can make a copy of your original saber. Anakin had two that were pretty much the same (The one in AOTC and Luke's in ANH) and Vader's saber was the same again, only it was black and had a red blade.

You know, the lightsaber Ben gives to Luke might not even be Anakin's lightsaber... he might as well just have picked a random lightsaber and given it to Luke as if it was his father's.

After all,a lot of people seem to think a Sith MUST have a red lightsaber, and if Ben picked it up after whooping Vader (or Anakin if you prefer that name)'s arse then it SHOULD be red, right?

I think Obi-Wan's lightsaber from episode 1 that fell in the shaft must have been destroyed. Just think about how much damage a penny can do if dropped from a skyscraper and then tell me that that thing wasn't accelerated to a lethal speed by the time it hit the bottom. It's all physics!

A Sith must have a red lightsaber. It's canon. Sith sabers are all red because they all use the same type of synthetic crystals.

Not really. He said "Your father wanted you to have this when you were old enough" so I'm thinking before they seperate after their battles, Anakin gives Obi-Wan his last Jedi lightsaber with the dying wish of Anakin Skywalker for it to be given to his future son.

Me too... I've always thought this too. I expect that is how Obi-Wan got his lightsaber back. Same could be true about Luke getting his ROTJ lightsaber back after he throws it away just after refusing to join the darkside.

Different situations though, he just throws it to the side of the room, it doesn't fall down a pit. We didn't see him dragging Vader all the way from Palpy's throne room to the shuttle so he most likely just grabs it before leaving the room.
