A quick click around and I've found one for a fiver.
Well it arrived and within minutes of posing it with Qui-Gon, the little nubbin snapped inside leaving me a hilt that won't accept a new blade.

I'm so sorry, Shazam. That's one of the things I detested about some of the figures from that period. The blades that snapped off if you so much as breathed on them. The worst offender was the "Geonosian Rescue" Mace Windu, whose purple blade had a very thin and fragile nib that broke easily, rendering his(quite nicely painted and screen accurate)metal-hilt useless. A ton of collectors back in 2002 wrote to websites and fan magazines complaining about that figure's weapon. Well, I suppose if push comes to shove you can krazy/super glue the blade to the hilt and use it that way. At least this way you know it won't pop off again unless you use tremendous force.
Human instinct is pretty strong. You can't expect us to change overnight.
