    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.

    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.

    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.

    Sweet.

    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$
