I recently purchased what I *believe* is a MR Darth Maul LE off of ebay for what I *believe* was a steal. Saber has the MR copyright on the emitter dated 2003. The Saber came in the long MR box with the blue foam cut to the right dimensions, although there was no paperwork or plaque (as stated in the auction.) The Saber also came with a Master Replica Display without an acrylic cover, which from what I can see wouldn’t have been able to fit into the Master replica box.
On another Note, the O rings on the saber are badly cracked or entirely missing. I found a thread on replacing them with hardware parts but there was no definite answer as to size and/or success.
1. Can anyone provide any insight as to weather I have an LE or possibly a SE Saber. Without the plaque it may not matter…. But I may sleep more soundly knowing the truth!
2. Did MR provide any sort of Display stand with this saber? (Possibly in a separate box as I see no way the one I received could have fit in the MR box the saber came in)
3. Would anyone like to share a few pics of their LE Maul for my restoration? (Did a search but couldn’t find the detail I needed) Looking for detail on the location of the rubber rings.
4. Has anyone had any success with replacing the above mentioned rubber o rings? If so… your knowledge would be greatly appreciated!
