Count Dooku's (Christopher Lee) dueling lightsaber from George Lucas' Star Wars: Attack of the Clones. Sith Lord Dooku wielded his red lightsaber to duel first Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) and Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor), and finally Yoda (Frank Oz). Later, in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, Skywalker used Dooku's own saber to behead him.
This lightsaber, used for sequences where Dooku dueled the Jedi, is comprised of an aluminum "blade" painted orange and wrapped in a clear shrink-wrap plastic sheath and, separately, a resin handgrip inset with a steel rod and painted silvertone, goldtone, black, and red to simulate a textured metallic finish. The blade attaches to the hilt via a threaded rod that allowed blades to be replaced during filming when they were damaged. The blade and hilt are in good overall condition with some wear to the sheath, scuffs throughout the paint, and minor chips to the resin.
Dimensions (blade): 3/4" x 3/4" x 38" (2 cm x 2 cm x 96.5 cm);
(hilt): 16 1/2" x 5" x 2" (42 cm x 12.75 cm x 5 cm)
Estimate: $30,000 - 50,000
This item comes with a Prop Store Certificate of Authenticity.
