If you asked everyone on this board if they could recognize what Luke's lightsaber or any number of other 'found' props were made from, you'd probably find people who knew what they were too. Star Wars has tons of recognizable found items in there from women's razors to flash guns to pen caps, etc. etc.
"There is no reason why good cannot triumph as often as evil. The triumph of anything is a matter of organization. If there are such things as angels, I hope that they are organized along the lines of the Maffia." - Winston Niles Rumfoord.
