They changed it to a whole graflex. (Well, Master Replicas) I agree, if you're going to switch from the skinnyflex to that... I don't understand why they didn't do that for both of themSo they changed Anakin's clamp to the bubble strip but left Kenobi's as ROTS - why didn't they just do both?
I thought it would be good if obi wan used it in his exile as well as his own so that way they could say parts fell off that needed replacing maybe after getting knocked about on a few entanglements and the chrome could have been tarnished by a sandstorm, or maybe he would change pieces so the saber wouldn't remind him so much of Anakin.Also, it still seems weird why they put that gold switch on the ROTS Anakin saber.Basically Obi Wan modified Anakins lightsaber but never touched his own??
Don't get me wrong I love the PT sabers, but there should have been some sort of continuity from the prop builders when producing the ROTS props. I think that's why some build their ROTS Anakin and Obi Sabers out of a graflex and a standard Obi Wan. That's what I did.
I think it was just because (as of yet) the Graflex wasn't going to be fought with, but Kenobi's was. Ewan would've probably been much more comfortable wielding the EpIII saber that he was used to.They changed it to a whole graflex.
