The SW Universe and their screen presence. Love 'em, Like 'em, Hate 'em?..
They're either in your Collection or they're not. It's what you love about the Episodes and how the connection is made..

Naah.. where's Anakin and Darth Vader? :silly:

I love the "skeleton" Graflex the most. It looks absolutely badass!

I see you got some to spare; feeling generous? :silly:

In all seriousness; magnificent collection, there's something about them indeed that just makes a fan want to have them, even if the most fun this hobby can offer is making your own personalized saber - it still just feels frikkin awesome wielding one of these (especially the Luke ROTJ is just iconic, I get the Graflex love, but for me it'll always be that one).
For my ally is the Force - and a powerful ally it is!

:lol: The empties have been posted and sold already and some of the others are already spoken for ;)

:lol: Thanks and further to my reply above, will be moving on two of the Graflex too sooner rather than later ;)

A MB Vintage, kinda agree with you there ;) As for Anakin? I've moved on all of my MR's (converted or otherwise) including the AotC empty most recently. Vader is coming I suppose (or there was a brief preview of it over on my MPP dual Reveal writeup) as too is Ben and Kylo ;) ...

For now though, some of the were but now no longer..

The KAM, Fisto and others that were held I didn't take glams of so they dont get a picture reference.. :lol:

Awesome collection !!!!!

Since you've got so many gorgeous "screen acurate" sabers, can you elaborate how well are they to actual sparring ?

Not all sabers in ones Collection are for sparring, besides.. it also depends on how you define sparring and what intensities you engage in ;)

Yeah, sure ! It's just that I'm more and more tempted by the Graflex and MPP MkII double reveals, and I was wondering if I ever got them how it would turn out should they be used for "sparring fun". :P

Specific to those two hilts (idk and remain unsure on what the official word is with warranty coverage) I personally wouldn't engage in any duelling beyond light to moderate. It'd depend on where your primary grip point is, but applicable to both, the top half unscrews (for the reveal) and cant be locked. Even when hand torqued, given enough movement, the threads will start to loosen.

With the MPP, the blade retention and emitter shroud is held by a single and shared setscrew.
With the Graflex (looks to share the same anatomy as the Graflex ASP emitter), the simulated ear clamp is secured by a sockethead screw (also shared) that also holds the ears. With enough force and vibrations from hard contact, there's a possibility that these two areas on both sabers will gradually loosen (in addition to the upper half of the body).

Ok, great, thanks for your review ! :)
