    Where is the best place to get a Graflex lightsaber replica that can have a blade or remove the blade? I have seen Parks Sabers but hear conflicting reports about him and then I also found Ultra Sabers? Let me know about each of these and maybe some other site.

    Not too sure about Park's..., Ultrasabers (heard nothing but bad reports), I steered away...

    I just recently purchased a ANH G R A F L E X from JQ and it is very - VERY GOOD!, also has a crystal reveal. If they have any remaining though, but be prepared to shell out at least £500 though...Well worth the money though & I highly recommend!!! AAA+

    Ultrasabers' graflex is not screen accurate at all.

    They are incredibly overpriced for what they are.

    Assuming JQ Sabers gets re-stocked how accurate are their graflex sabers

    Was the tape covering the Graflex writing on both the ESB and ANH versions????

    Parks look great but I would change out the emitter with the one from The Graflex Shop.

    Why? One of my very first 'G R A F L E X' converted ESB lightsaber turned out to be a Parks ... and it's almost identical to the real flashguns ... though I haven't popped a flashbulb ... yet :) Only the ESB had the word 'G R A F L E X' covered with about a 1,5cm mylar strip ... not the textured as far as we know now.

    I had a Parks saber many moons ago. Wish I still had it now! I did customize it a little bit though!

    The textured tape was a replacement if I'm not wrong. About the GRAFLEX being seen in ANH. There is no final proof of it but I would say yes, it's not covered in ANH.

    ANH - no tape, bare Graflex logo
    ESB - Smooth mylar tape (Since the first movie did so well, they had to start worrying about copyright)
    Skywalker Ranch Saber - textured tape. (Heavily repaired ESB belt hanger)
