Lady Razor Communicators
The Star Wars film has produced a lot of futuristic props which were made from unusual materials. Take Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber, for example. Who would have known that it was just a handle of a vintage camera? Or that medical droid’s mouthpiece in Empire Strikes back, which was actually just made from an old-school microphone.
But the ultimate prop trickery took place in The Phantom Menace. If you look twice at the communicators used by Qui-Gon Jinn (played by Liam Neeson) and Obi-Wan Kenobi (played by Ewan McGregor), you might notice that they are shaped exactly like a Gillette razor. That’s because they were actually made from the resin cast of a Gillette Ladies Sensor Excel Razor.
