    Question What the hell was that?

    In ESB, Lukes comes sliding down the chute and lands on the weather vane. Ouch. We then see something fall past him. What is it? I always though it was his boot. But it's not. It's not his hand, because Darth finds that. (At least in the books) So what the hell was it?

    I always thought it was part of the weather vane that got knocked off in the impact.

    Since at the time the movie was made no one would have had any idea of a book claiming that the hand and lightsaber are recovered, it very well could have been meant to be his hand or saber or both.
    If I could sum up my life in one sentence, I think that sentence would be: He was born, he lived, and then he kept on living, much longer than anyone had ever lived before, growing richer and richer and glowing with a bright, white light.

    Maybe, but we don't see the hand and saber lying there when the chute opens.

    Damn, that's a good theory. Let's go with that.

    I watched it again and you are right - he does still have his blaster.

    If you pause the movie at the right time you can clearly see that it's his hand. And if your argument is that Vader finds his hand in the book then maybe now there is some insight of why it was apparently cut from movie.

    Besides, don't they find the hand/saber on the planet itself instead of on cloud city? I seem to remember this being the case...

    Smile Lost Hand and Sabre

    Yes, both is found. It is described in the Thrawn Trilogy. Out of the hand they made Luke's clone who uses the lightsabre which they found as well.

    Bespin is a gas giant, so whatever it was that fell, it would keep falling until it reached the center of gravity, or was crushed by the immense pressure.

    At any rate, in the fight scene between Vader and Luke, a lot of things get ripped up and sliced off. The object you see [should we chose to ignore CrazyNuts - no offence] could be one of those objects, or, as darkvet suggests, it could be a part of the weather vane that snapped off when Luke landed on it.

    Well, I just sat down a watched it, and whatever it is, it isn't part of the weather vane. Nor is it Luke's hand.

    The thing fell as Luke dropped from the hole, and you could see the object even though it had been falling for a few seconds (with a>10m/s^2). The object also looked white.
