    Dug's Talking dog collar from Up

    Hey everyone! I'm hoping you can help me out with a project I'm working on... I'm putting together Dug's talking collar from the movie Up. I have the electronics part of the project covered, however I'm having a bit of trouble finding clean audio (wav/mp3) of Dug. I was able to rip some clips...

    Limited Run Graflex 2.0 and Crossguard saber run - sign up thread

    I'm definitely interested in that! Light and sound if possible. This is my first saber build so I'm only slightly north of clueless.

    Now that the movie is out, has anyone confirmed the changes (if any) to the saber for TFA?

    Has anyone purchased blades or electronics for this yet? If so, what did you get and how did it turn out?

    I had the same issues, this is how I fixed them... For the activation board, I put a little bit of double sided tape on the back of the board and slid it into place. There is just enough metal on the clamp for it to catch on the sides. It seems to be holding in place fairly well so far. As for...

    If anyone has to peel the grips off after they have been applied, you are probably going to mess up the tape. I found a pretty good solution for reapplying the grips I peeled off all of the tape from the grips and then went to a hardware store and bought a small roll of double sided tape. What...

    For the very bottom, where the belt clip is. All I did was attach the belt clip with the two screws and used the D ring as leverage to help unscrew the bottom piece. Once that is off, Remove the screw highlighted in the second picture on the clamp. Then open the clip in the red box so it is...

    There is a small screw on the side of the clamp right below the clip. Loosen that, open the clip and the bottom should unscrew. Can someone fill me in on how the buttons snap together? Do I have to glue the red part to the button mechanism? I'm at a loss here...

    This is what you will get out of the box. I'm not as well versed on all of the nuances of each saber as most of the folks here so I'm not really an authority on how accurate this is over another prop, but I will say that it does look really well made. It was nicely packaged so nothing would get...

    Has anyone ordered a blade or electronics for the Graflex yet? I'm reading up on all of the different options now, and suffering from information overload. I would love to hear recommendations that others may have

    First timer FX saber build tips.

    Thanks for the heads up! I watched a few of the videos and they seem like they are a good pace for following along during construction once I figure out what I'm going to buy. I picked up one of the Graflex sabers that are being sold on this thread http://www.therpf.com/showthread.php?t=241677...

    First timer FX saber build tips.

    Awesome information, thank you! I've read around the forums a bit but as a person that is new to building sabers/electronics, it is a little overwhelming. Given the politics on the sites, and the information overload in general, is there a thread that has a simple (hopefully unbiased) compare...
