I can tell you the solo's hold is LIGHTER than the real one... but it's also hollowed out more for electronics
Ahhh okay.Hey FarStarbuck ! No, not really. Though they share similar shapes, the REAL PARTS Obi-Wan Lightsaber is made from Inconel, Brass, Steel, Chromed Brass, Steel, and Chromed Plastic and Stainless Steel, whereas the bulk of the V2 is made from Aluminum. Sure, the thickness of all the different parts of both lightsabers might end up bringing their weights close to one another, but I would think that it would be an awfully unlikely coincidence if they were the same weight.
Hey Halliwax ! Did you ever purchase a Solo's Hold V2? Chalk one up in the weight lineup if you can, I'd love to see how they all compare!
Thanks for adding your perspective Scottjua!I can tell you the solo's hold is LIGHTER than the real one... but it's also hollowed out more for electronics
Thanks buddy!Hey FarStarbuck ! For reference, my Roman's MK1-FX weighs in at 28.275 oz. / 1 pound 12.275 ounces. / 1.7672 pounds.
I'm thinking the Obi-Wan would be heavier than the V2, especially when you factor in some sort of steel rod and nuts holding the Obi-Wan together and a real booster (which wouldn't be hollowed out for electronics like the one on my MK1-FX).
Oooh, neat new forum feature - click to view posts that have been added while you were typing so slowly! Must be time for my dinner.
Hey The 48th Ronin ! That settles it, Obi-Wan is short for Ole Beefy One! That lightsaber is a monster!
I forget, was Anakin Starkiller 's first V2 run static or FX?
Oh! And yes thank you scottjua for your hefting hand!
O.K. Off to the kitchen! Hmmm, Gorton's Beer Battered Fillets or Spaghetti and Meatballs with Prego White Sauce?
Yes, BOTH, IS the correct answer! But I've gotta lose a little weight, so... why am I typing this??? Talkatcha Later Gang!

Thats it folks! Halliwax is hitting the hay, good night!
Yeah, I can imagine that Sir Alec was just thrilled to have that boat anchor hanging from his belt.
The first run was static (hence the extra weight).
youre very welcome, remember we are here to help one another achieve their goal, not make fun of each otherThank you so much Halliwax this is great information for reference. Delivered with all the good humour I’ve come to expect from you.
So the Sumo is the Steel huh? nice.
I think you’re probably right about the original Anakin run being closest to the real deal. 1.6lbs sounds about right as I agree it wouldn’t be as heavy as the Obi prop.
Goodnight and thank you for all your help
