It’s possible that the exposed threads of the grenade neck were sharp and cut Alec’s fingers up, and he asked them to rework that aspect of the prop. I naturally put my index finger right at that point of the saber when holding it.
No worries. I took it the way you meant it. Totally on the same page.I didn’t mean to imply that you did make a definitive statement, my second sentence was meant as a qualifier for my first. Meaning I believe it to be theoretical because I’ve been burned by new information before. Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence like the new tiny rivets between the grips of the ANH Luke saber that were recently discovered.
And that is probably what they were going for but the threads sticking out most likely bugged them and definitely AG just like scarf man brought up.I can see why the angled top lip of the grenade would be stuck in the clamp when assembled backwards, it gives a more cylindrical shape to the lightsaber to have the sharp edged circle top instead of a faded/angled grenade top.
Agreed, I was just thinking about the aesthetics of the prop, and the flipped grenade works kind of well if it weren’t for the exposed threads.I can see why the angled top lip would be stuck in the clamp when assembled backwards, it gives a more cylindrical shape to the lightsaber to have the sharp edged circle top instead of a faded/angled grenade top.
That is nice, russrep’s grenade is the same in that regard, albeit wrong in the frag dimensions. I think serafino designed the “big bottom” of the russrep grenade that way as a means to an end with the empty clamp theory in mind.
That makes a heap of sense logically.Because all Stunt Obi Saber wooden master was made with the angled grenade top in the correct-for-the-grenade orientation and all the Obi stunt casts have the same chamfered top ring I do think that is/was supposed to be the 'correct' set-up. I (personally) think the Tunsia configuration was either an early set-up or a mistake.
And there is this. I wanted to bring this back up. Thank you for the pic. I was looking for it. It's a possibility but i do see the chamfer end in the clamp. I think the frag body was just flipped. Does it make sense? Maybe. We do see that they did not put the hand wheel back together in its tight fitting state. (Cubes flipped) in the chronicles. Why they did that i dont know. Not paying attention to how the hand wheel goes back together? maybe. Were they on drugs? Probably. Who knows what they were thinking.
