As a stoic grown man (mostly), few things in life will bring me to tears. Okay, maybe that Apple Christmas commercial with Frankenstein's monster singing in the town square, but toss me to the Rancor if this new video of Mark Hamill grasping the hilt of his original lightsaber from Return of the Jedi doesn't make me a bit misty.
In the latest episode of the SVOD geek-fest, Mark Hamill's Pop Culture Quest, our celebrated host is shown one of these priceless artifacts from superfan collector Brandon Alinger, and not only did Mark Hamill swing this elegant weapon in Star Wars: Episode VI, it was also the same handle gripped by Alex Guiness' Obi-Wan Kenobi to battle Darth Vader in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope.
The reunion is an electrifying moment, made even more amazing by the surge of emotions and memories that wash over Hamill's face as he holds the iconic lightsaber. Have a look at the clip and tell us what you think that honored heirloom prop might be worth!
