    Pretty happy about this... picked it up for less than $20:

    Planning on adding this to my Solo rig. I know it's not the same model, but I prefer "real world" parts whenever possible to accurate resin castings. I like the feel of the real things.

    For 20 bucks you would be a fool to complain! Nice find.

    Aah ... the 'Princess Leia' Droidcaller ... as I call it ... looks good ... I have purchased the same when thinking the Kobold clip would also work for an ESB lightsaber ... alas the screws are further apart instead of closer :wacko

    Great score! And for under $20...very nice job. Wish the Linhof I got was a Kobold instead, and black on the bottom... and that I could have paid less than $20 for it!

    Indeed.

    But be carefull with the clip, Kobold used 2 versions. One with the 2 screws on one end, what would be the correct version for the d-ring holder. And another one, like on this, with one screw on each end - not the correct clip for a accurate lightsaber.

    Congrats! This is so cool to see, excellent find! I also always prefer real world close parts to copies usually so I feel yah. I love the emitter portion

    After two coats of matte black, I am one happy camper:

    I think I'll let it distress natrually... we'll see how long I can leave it pristine.

    Oh c'mon! I have never seen any SW worthy items out in the wild! :lol ;) Were those off eBay or a real store?

    Nice Score! Does it have a knurled edge on the bottom or is it smooth around the edge?

    In the pictures you posted, it looks like it has a smooth edge bottom. That seems to be the tough one to find!!! I found one about 15 years ago, and I think "Kurtyboy" has one, too. Not sure who else has found one. It's the correct version for Luke's "ANH" caller.

    Pictures of mine can be found on "The Parts of Star Wars".
