Snap Out Star World Saber
Star Wars Space Sword
Unsold Dime Store Display Card ~ 1977
This clever toy Star Saber is designed to Snap out to an impressive 4 foot length. It is a dime store knock-off made when the first movie was released in 1977. It is only 6 inches long when wound in. The ingenious mechanism is a tightly rolled paper coil with resilience like a spring. You hold it in your hand and flick your wrist and POW it is suddenly 4 feet long! Even though it is paper, it is sturdy and strong. Here is a shot of it “Open”.
