If Hasbro has yet to do a hilt design with a removable blade, then IMHO, all those designs should be considerations.I wish they would. Master Replicas released both episode 2 and 3 Anakin sabers. I don't know why Hasbro is holding out on rereleasing them.
unfortunately what you state in that last sentance is too true.If Hasbro has yet to do a hilt design with a removable blade, then IMHO, all those designs should be considerations.
My personal opinion is that unless they can make a thin neck fx hilt that can hold a blade, I am not going to be interested in them. I would like to see The Phantom Menace Obi and Qui Gon (assuming they can do the grooved handle in a decent way. Still bummed they never did they Ahsoka Clone Wars shoto.
The biggest factor with the lightsabers and the helmets as well, is that because they only do limited numbers released per year, they will tend to favor items that they can market in conjunction with the release of new media Such as the recent release of the Obi and Vader hilts In conjunction with the Kenobi series.
The good thing is that because we do get new shows that touch upon previous eras, there is a chance we can see previously established items marketed under new titles. I am hoping to see a TIE pilot helmet and/or scout trooper helmet based on appearances of series like Andor, Mandalorian, etc….unfortunately what you state in that last sentance is too true.
Yah, Hasbro really should try to copy the NeoPixel blade connection. The problem with Hasbro blades is they need to be inserted about 4 inches into the hilt. As long as that's the case we'll never get proper thin neck sabers.Just make me a thin neck that lights up. I’m an adult collector and don’t have fights with them.
Me too. It was not about price, but rather, the absurdity of the saber.I wish they would have done this as a Haslab project. They could develop the tech and upgrade material and see if collectors would pay the price required to make a thin neck lightsaber happen.
I fear that Hasbro may have taken away the wrong lessons with the failure of the Reva lightsaber. I fear that they might think collectors are not willing to spend more than the current pricing BS Elite lightsabers. Although a lot of people did complain of the price ($499), I know for me, I would not have wanted it for half the amount. It was not a design or character that meant much to me so I had no interest. I hope that if they come up with another SW related prop item for a Haslab project, they do not rule it out based o the Reva lightsaber failure.
