I finally got my hands on an original MPP Microflash. It is missing the clamp and it has the 2-step shroud, but even so, it might just be my new favorite saber! The weight, the detail and all the metal... this thing is crazy sick.
I have made a Luke ANH in the past (pics are on the board somewhere), and that was a kind of holy grail for me (even though it is the gateway prop into a lot of peoples collections ).
I had never thought of seriously building a Vader saber before now because I never thought I would see one for sale!
Okay, so the question is... do you guys think there is any way on God's green earth I can find an authentic shroud and clamp around here? If not, do any replicas fit an authentic MPP body?
Question 2... if I sell it, what are these going for? I know the body is also used for a Fett blaster and this one is in awesome condition. Even for authentic Vader build, this body could replace one in less than ideal condition.
I am trying to decide if I should keep it or sell it... what are these worth now?
