Thank you Kit for your input! I don't think that it was ever being disputed that there are 6 points on the top of the Gandalf the White staff being formed by the "lattice work" parts. It is the point formed by the 3 main support pieces in the middle that is missing on the picture of the UC replica. The Fall 2003 catalog clearly shows this part on the movie prop, but not on the UC replica which is directly next to it. I am not trying to start any arguments here, just trying to explain things better to avoid any misunderstanding. I think that gandalf23 is the only other person that sees what I see. Anyway, I really appreciate your input into this!
