    You may of seen Baden's (Jimbobond's) post about the 3PO head at Elstree, well this was the 2nd trip as we were working with the Elstree Heritage trust, hence how we got the see the props. I'm posting up some photos from our 1st visit. Been meaning to post these for a while now.

    Enjoy :)

    Awesome shots.. The Luke saber looks like a hybrid ANH/ESB with the calc bubles and lens underneath.

    Nice pics from your visit. That Luke saber's not supposed to be screen-used is it?

    Isn't Nick Deceased? I thought it's only Paul running it now, I remember his brother died years ago. Paul's a great guy. Got all my Dredd props from him

    Nice pics. Yeah, I've dealt with Paul, and he's a great guy to do business with. See that blackened skull in the background on the shelf? It's a T2 "Future War" screen used skull, and it currently resides in my collection, thanks to Paul. :p

    Elstree seems to have a lot of SW props they like to show and have people assume they are screen used.
    I've seen a few they've displayed that were made by RPFers.
    My guess is that Luke saber is just a Graflex with a BlasTech kit.

    I was thinking the same thing. The grip bolts look the same as the Blast Tech ones.

    To be honest I wasn't too bothered about the saber, just getting the chance to dress in my trooper gear in Stage 7. You are right the saber does raise some questions.

    Well sptted, I meant to say Norman Harrison instead of Nick, so used to associating Nick with Elstree.
