I have 3.
always thought about getting myself a light saber, but i'm not quite that much of a dork for star wars
i am however going to pick one of these up in the near future
got any pics?
i do love props
I'll get some pictures up.
Im actualy in the very beinging stages of creating my own Yoda Force FX "prototype" saber. My goal is to make something that look pretty much like the movie prop while still having all the same features as a real force FX. I went shopping for parts today I think I can pull it off. Who knows though at least it might be fun to try.
lots of people make their own sabers, as i understand it it can be as simple as playing with PBC plumbing and loose odds and ends, just a matter of putting it together right
that could be fun, might try that some day
what's so cool about the force fx sabers?
Lights, sounds, as close to an actual prop to the movies as you can get. not 100% they are a tad bigger than props due to the electronics.
ROTS Obi Wan
ESB Vader 2x (1 altered with green blade)
used to have a gen1 AOTC Anakin but that got ruined in Katrina. workin on getting a Mace saber. i also have a lightechindustries.com saber and a ANH Vader hilt prop.
i don't remember them putting out a ROTJ Vader fx saber yet.
Any place to get a good deal on them? I am thinking about buying one for Halloween.
nice collection. I picked up my Mace on EBAY. They are going cheap there. I think I got it for 68.00 + shipping.
My next is the Obi Wan or Luke.
What kind of conversion did you do? A luxum LED?
You're right. It should have said ESB.
For anyone that is interested www.thecustomsabershop.com is a good place to start out if you want to make your own.
actually i took a luke rotj blade with the led's and replaced the broken blade on the vader saber.
replicas shouldn't be massed produced. i consider these fake replicas. make your own lightsaber. the easiest one to make is probably luke's a new hope saber. the only hard pard is finding the graflex flash. if you can't find it you can make your own or buy one made. they even have premade lcd bubbles and all that. really neat stuff.
that site is pretty darn cool. i think ill pick one up
I can see where you're comming from. If i had the money I would get the LE sabers. But they are +1K
Make that 4. I just bought the Obi Wan on hsn.com for 104.xx shipped.
took a quick cam phone pic this morning.
I just found an "upgrade" kit for the Luke. Its some polished bronze looking stickers that you put on the brown neck behind the blade and the switch. Its kinda cool, and its like 12$
hey grouch, are you on fx-sabers.com forum?
yeah I am under the same user name.
cool, i haven't registered there yet but i lurk. its a cool site with some nice folks. i also lurk thecustomsabershop forum for more ideas about building a custom hilt.
u'r pm box is full.
I made some room.
I finally bought one off Ebay for like $95 shipped.
I got ROTS Mace Windu.
sweet. My mace is acting up. Sometimes the sound goes out.
Have Maul and Anakin, and regularly hold epic battles in the driveway several times a week with roommates.
