Yodas Lightsaber
#1
I have only seen ROTS once so i cannot remember everything, so i wanted to ask a question. Did yoda lose his lightsaber? I presume he did as he does not have one in the trilogy but this may be due to him not wanting to carry one. Could someone please tell me if he did lose it please. Thanks.

Yoda's Lightsaber is the knife that toastes bread as you slice it, from "The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy."

Anyway, on topic, I think he did lose it. The movie didn't show him picking it up. I'm going to have to read the book that way I'll know a lot more about whats going on in the movie.

I read somewhere that there was a pouch in Yoda's hut on Dagobah (sp?) labled 'lightsaber'. So either he recovered it or he built a new one.

Yoda turned his lightsaber on and off several times during the duel, When he turned it off, he often put it back on his belt, so I assume he had it with him. Not having a weapon in ESB fits Yoda's role as a Japanese-style teacher.

... I'm lost.

I'm pretty sure I saw his 'saber fall. He might have reclaimed it though.

I remember him clearly losing it and seeing it fall. I don't remember him recovering it.
I can imagine quite a bit.

im pretty positive it did fall, but he probably got it somehow and they just didnt show it. maybe it will be in the deleted scenes on the dvd?! wouldnt that be sweet. whatever happened, i mean hes yoda, cmon...if he wants his light saber back hes gettin that light saber back!!

Either:
-He lost it during the duel
-He got rid of it after he settled on Dagobah
OR
-He has it in a container somewhere in his hut on Dagobah

I'm seeing ROTS yet again tommorow so I'll be on the lookout for what happens.

You never know. In RotJ Vader takes Luke's lighsaber and puts it on his belt but you never see it except for when Luke pulls it off with the force.

Even if he did lose it, he could have gotten another one. I have never seen a pouch labeled "lightsaber" in the movies. Wouldn't that be a bit corny? He would need the label on the pouch to know it contained his lightsaber? Well, perhaps he became forgetful in his old age, but somehow I don't think that would happen.

I believe that he had a Lightsaber on Dagobah (where he got it I don't know). Because just in case somebody happened to stumble on Degobah and wanted to hurt Yoda, a Lightsaber would be helpfull especially if he was up against a whole squadron of stormtroopers, for instance.

According to some EU texts, a Jedi can build their own lightsabers, so if he really needed one, he could just make it from some spare parts.

i do seem to remember it falling in the duel with Darth Sidious (bit of random knowledge: Darth is an anciet sith pronunciation of "dark"), then he fell and his cloak got caught on that pole which i thought was just a little cruel. but i'm quite sure he could of recovered it when he came to. honestly, he suspends an enormous pole over ben and anakin, so i'm sure he can pick up a lightsaber using the force if he really wanted to. i think that was probably the best possible theory because it would probably be close to impossible to find the parts he needed on dagobah, so he would have had to get him before his departure.

Can I get a link for that? Because everywhere that I've looked, it's never said anything like that.

Yeah , but to make a lightsaber, you need some special 'ingredients' like lightsaber crystals, which aren't all too common throughout the galaxy.

I watched ROTS again last night and I'm pretty sure he dosen't pick it up after he falls.

He may have had one in the 5 or 6 but never needed to use it.
