An ICONS first prototype Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) lightsaber from the promotion of Richard Marquand's Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. This piece was part of a package of replica prop prototypes that ICONS initially showcased to Lucasfilm in order to gain the first-ever prop replica license. ICONS intended to make the Return of the Jedi lightsaber prop as a consumer product in the 1990s, but it was never ultimately released.
This metal and resin lightsaber was created as the first prototype for the company. It is in excellent overall condition with minor wear from age and some tape residue on the activation panel.
Dimensions: 11 1/4" x 2 1/2" x 2" (28.5 cm x 6.25 cm x 5 cm)
Estimate: $2,500 - 3,500
This item comes with a Prop Store Certificate of Authenticity.
