Browsing eBay last week, I picked up a vintage Heiland Syncronar 3-cell with the intent of creating an ESB version of Vaders hilt.

I’ve build sabers from kits, and even installed a few, but this has some issues for me that are new, and I figured the best thing to so was do was ask the experts here.

I’d ideally like to build this out with as much vintage parts as possible. I already have a replica of the emitter section, or the MPP shroud from Romans Props. I can easily buy the pommel cap, the clamp, and all the other parts, but I guess I’m looking for anyone who has parts they are willing to part with.

But I think my biggest issue is, did I mess up getting a 3 cell? Was Vader’s only a 2 cell flash? This feels just a bit to long, and if it is, is there a way to cut the bottom, and a way to thread this, or attach the pommel?



Anyway, I’m looking for all the words of wisdom, help, and sales you guys can help me with.

Yup, the 3-cell is correct. From what you have there, you're going to need:

  • Replacement coin-edged end cap
  • MPP style bulb release
  • MPP clamp
Plus the assorted t-track, d-ring, etc hardware.

Of the above, the end cap is the most feasible to get a real vintage part; Heiland made a coin edged cap that's a fairly good fascimile of the MPP, only it's stamped with a Heiland logo on the bottom instead of the 1/4-20 threaded hot shoe mount. The bulb release and clamp will most likely need to be replicas, unless you're willing to spend a lot of cash.

Sometimes you can still pick up vintage t-track; a few people found rolls of some fairly close stuff years back and every now and then strips cut from them pop up for sale.
