Roman's is awesome and YES!!! The Yuma is my favorite too. I've done this hilt 4 times, yet had to sell everyone of them. That book in the background was my first star wars book as a kid. The Yuma is what Luke is holding. That is why i like it and the hilt is so unique.Yeah Romans is definitely in the ole wish list. But I'm going back and forth between a static, and an FX.
I love both. Probably because I grew up with the Prequels and seeing toying toy versions, and seeing it on the box art, and the Visual Dictionary and all, but that ROTS, Obi-Wan.....whew. But the ANH Obi-Wan is really good too. Yeah I love both.
The Yuma/Hero has always been my favorite. But the V2 is up there. There's just something about a prop that's so uniquely weathered, and had such a history. It's kinda of interesting that only in recent years that the Hero has become THE Luke Skywalker lightsaber. In the 90's and early 2000s, the V3 was the Luke's saber. Hasbro had a toy, it was in the Visual Dictionary, and all the games used that version. Though the DICE/EA Battlefronts use the V2 version, looks like a Master Replicas.
Yeah, Kyo's saber is probably my favorite prop out of the Sequels. I love the more medieval look. Of course his whole vibe is that of a dark knight or dark prince. His armor takes strong ques from a doublet. I love how practical the folding saber is. A saber staff should really be carried in a sheath as opposed to covertec or ring. Having a 11 inch piece of metal swing on a belt is scary enough. I like too, that they Rey's staff for her saber. There's this little element of Heroine's Journey, where the heroine brings tools from her "perfect world" to help her. So her staff fills that part of the story. (Side note, the Heroine's Journey is really cool. Rey's story follows beat for beat Victoria Lynn Schmidt's version. Like The Force Awakens literally takes it name from one of the stages.)
