Two different Star Wars vintage offerings below.
Original green version The Force Beam Lightsaber (lights up works) with bonus vintage Flyer Ad for the Force Beam Lightsaber
and a Original Star Wars Rumph Mug set (Darth Vader, Chewbacca, and Obi Wan Kenobi) with boxes. See below for photos and details.

1) Original Green Version The Force Beam Lightsaber
One Vintage 1977 The Force Beam lightsaber that lights up RARE green color with RARE original black circular guard on the hilt (almost always missing) and original The Force Beam Black cap on the bottom of the handle.. Slightly Used but working condition. No restoration has been done to it. All ORIGINAL. Originally sold back in fall of 1977, not many survivor The Force Beam Lightsabers are in this great of condition including ones that actually work by lighting up are left for Star Wars collections. This comes from a one owner collection who took exceptional care of the vintage star wars item after purchasing it new in 1977

**************************************************
As a bonus you will also receive an 8 1/2" x 11" original Yellow front and back star wars product flyer page showing vintage Star Wars items that includes a original Rare AD FOR THE FORCE BEAM LIGHTSABER (this will be wrapped around the lightsaber for shipping purposes.) The original flyer shows wear including some pen marks, creases, and a spot on the border. The flyer doesn't show up in photos as being on yellow printed paper but it is. Original vintage flyer and not reproduction - see photos.
************************************************


$430.00 (SALE reduced to $390) plus $30 shipping/insurance/signature delivery in the continental U.S. either by USPS or UPS. Will ship in two packages (lightsaber in thick poster tube and the round lightsaber black handle guard will ship in a separate box).

Usually these were beat up pretty bad but this is in great condition see description below and photos. Some light wear to the lightsaber including a few what I would consider minor dents on the plastic beam tube from apparently a lightsaber battle in 1977. One of the best condition The Force Beam Lightsabers I have come across in 45 years of collecting Star Wars. See Photos and the video below which I took of this lightsaber.

Rare find to have it in working condition and be the GREEN Colored lightsaber beam when it lights up (a green lightsaber is what Luke Skywalker wouldn't get until Return of the Jedi). These originally came in white, green, or red light up - This one is GREEN which has been the hardest color to find through the years since original release 45 years ago. You just put two D batteries in the handle (batteries not included) and then flip the switch on the handle which turns the lightsaber on making the plastic lightsaber tube light up green. See Video of the lightsaber being turned on and off - so it DOES WORK. These were NOT designed with sound in 1977 so the plastic beam lights up as designed.

My video showing this Force Beam Lightsaber working (lighting up on 12/28/22) https://youtu.be/UMiGYni8l_I

- Includes the Black circular guard on the hilt that fits around the lightsaber handle. This is either often missing from a lightsaber being sold today after being lost and sometimes it was originally removed from the lightsaber when it was originally manufactured as they figured they didn't want take away more profit from selling these back in 1977. This lightsaber has the Black circular guard on the hilt! So definitely a early issue of the Force Beam lightsaber to still have the black guard on it. All original parts. The black circular guard fits tight on the lightsaber (unlike some which as soon as you raise the lightsaber up in the air, the black guard slides down the lightsaber handle. This one doesn't do that. It fits tight as it should per original factory but still easily removable so you can unscrew the handle to insert your batteries into it.

- Also has the black cap at the bottom of the lightsaber handle which reads "The Force Beam TM distributed b Jack A. Levin & Assoc L.A. Ca 90015" - Many times this is also missing. Included here. Original.

- Has faded (can't be read any longer since it's faded) original 1977 retail price sticker still on the handle.
- Batteries were never stored in the battery compartment so it's exceptionally clean. See photos showing inside.


Measures roughly 41 inches long from bottom of handle to top of plastic lightsaber beam. Of the 41 inches, The plastic lightsaber beam itself is about 33 inches long. The very top tip of the lightsaber plastic beam is designed with a roundish cap/end which has a very small but original factory piece of tape (now yellowed) on it. See photos.

I've collected Star Wars since 1977 and this is one of the best condition ones I've seen. Great addition to your vintage Star Wars collection - the rare Green Version light up lightsaber called The Force Beam from 1977


TERMS OF SALE and Shipping PLEASE NOTE: While it's working condition (with proof with the video posted), I am still selling it "as is" since it's an old electronic item from 1977. I will try to ship USPS priority but if it's expensive then I may take this to UPS to ship via ground. So assume UPS ground and be surprised if it ships USPS priority. Shipping is expensive due to the large size.

At this point, I'm going to try to ship the Force Beam lightsaber in a thick poster tube insured. Then with the black guard being shipped separately with agreed upon insured value between the buyer and myself of $100 insured value for the 2nd mailing box that contains only the black lightsaber guard. The black guard is unable to fit into a poster tube due to the size as it's too wide for the poster tube. Otherwise the lightsaber and black guard would likely ship together in a long box.
USPS now charges an extra $15 fee on top of normal shipping charges for items this long. So if shipping through USPS is $25 they would add another $15 to it for a grand total of $40 just for the lightsaber package and the black guard which ships separately for another fee. Therefore I am charging a flat $30 total to ship The Force Beam Lightsaber in one package and the black circular guard for the hilt in a 2nd package.


Shipping to continental U.S. addresses only. As with all of my items, they are sold collector to collector. Item(s) are Sold As Is. All Sales Final. Items will be fully insured and an adult signature will be required upon delivery. No returns or refunds as Items are fully insured for the full amount of your purchase in case of lost or damaged mail. Lost or damaged mail is resolved through the USPS or UPS insurance claim process. Will be mailed within 2 days of payment being received however at this time of year shipping delays are possible due to bad weather such as snow/ice.

2) Star Wars vintage Rumph Mug Set of 3 with boxes.

A fantastic vintage Star Wars find - all three original Star Wars Rumph mugs (1977) in their original open boxes that are UNUSED. Two mugs (Darth Vader and Chewbacca) still have the tag on them and all three have the original cardboard inserts...Often you will see these without boxes and these are some of the best condition Rumph boxes I've ever seen since I started collecting in 1977. Each box measures roughly 8 x 8 x 8.

These vintage mugs / tankards would look amazing sitting in your Star Wars collection. Supposedly the Chewbacca Rumph mug is George Lucas's favorite piece of Star Wars Merchandise

These were never used and were actually the Star Wars Rumph display mugs at a store in a mall called "Old Chicago" (part mall and part indoor amusement park in the 1970's) near Chicago. That mall was legendary in the Chicago area and has been since torn down.

$550 (ON SALE for $470 - ONLY $156.66 PER MUG) which is only $183 a piece for never used vintage 1977 Rumph mugs with the original 3 boxes and 2 original hanging tags along with all cardboard inserts. plus $30 shipping/insurance/signature delivery (this will be larger shipping box and heavy since all three will be inside) - shipping is likely going to be more than $30 because of that but I'm only charging $30.

1) Chewbacca Rumph Mug with the original box
. Has original tag still hanging from it. Box has original inserts.
Like new. No chips.
2) Obi Wan Kenobi Rumph Mug with the original box. Box has original inserts. Like New. No chips.
3) Darth Vader Rumph Mug with the original box. Has original tag still hanging from it. No chips. Like New even though you can see some small pen tip indentations on Vader's helmet if you look close enough - from the original manufacturing process in 1977 and not later damage. Also the top brim of the mug is slightly uneven - again not damage but from the original manufacturing process in 1977. See photos.

All three mugs are exactly how they came out of the factory boxes in 1977.

The photos show the actual mugs and boxes that you will receive and the condition they are in. The boxes are opened (both on top and on the bottom
of the box so there is no tape holding the boxes together on the top or bottom).


Don't miss out as a set of all three of the vintage Star Wars 1977 Rumph Mugs with boxes (in this good of condition) rarely come up for sale in a set with boxes and tags.

Sorry no individual sales. Only selling as a lot.

These are heavy so shipping will be $30 bubble wrapped in a larger box with proper packing for protection (And I know shipping/packaging will be higher than $30 but I'm only charging $30.
