    Looks like it. Graflex. 1 red button, 1 glass eye, but ESB style grips and d-ring. And the implication from the voice-over is that it belongs to Leia now!

    Note that that is my guess based solely on the trailer. For those about to post, let's keep this thread spoiler free please :)

    I have a very bad screencap via smartphone.
    But yes it is a graflex esb style.

    People have been predicting the end of Graflex supplies since I joined this board in 1999. This news may finally achieve that....Or they will price out in the range of an MPP.

    Thank God JJ and LFL decided to cut us all a break and include the glass eye instead of 2 red buttons!

    It went down the tubes, like Luke did, but it didn't get snagged on an antenna like Luke did.

    I own only two Graflex flashes and one is an ANH the second should have became an ESB. WHat now? I'll never get a third one, since the whole world saw the teaser :wacko

    The question I have is, considering how new it looks, if it is a replica or a real Graflex...

    It's looking like you might only need to swap a red button with a glass eye to convert the ESB to TFA :)

    I have a feeling we shouldn't have to worry about finding more vintage flashes for this version, though. Realistically, they may have used one of the many reproduction flashes that have been made over the years. A need for multiples for backups and the rarity of flashguns in good shape mean they might go the more reliable route.

    Wow, were they really now?? I retract my previous post!

    Well, Sym-Cha just said that they bought a real one from a board member... I have seen flashes that are that clean, but it's...pretty clean.

    I personally think they should have made it look a lot more distressed....

    Glad I kept my last Graflex...

    If 8 and 9 have variants (like the diff between aANH and ESB) I guess I'm going parks. Cuz ebay will be CRAZY after this movie hits (even this teaser's gonna blow it up)

    Why do you say Leia? Didn't he say "my sister has it. You have that power too"? Inferring someone else.

    Yeah it occurred to me that it could be either one. But it was more the linking dialog that made me think that -- "my father has it" and showing the mask, "I have it" and showing Luke, and then "my sister has it." It is of course not proof positive and I actually don't want to know for sure for as long as possible :)

    I think the general public will still be in the dark as to what it is but our world will probably still drive prices up.

    Meantime, I'm putting my bet on rivets!;)

    Those hands taking the G R A F L E X and also the garments look more to belong to Princess Leia

    [​IMG]

    ... than to the all new girl on the STAR WARS block ... however I've been known to make mistakes ...
    from time to time :)

    @ Darth Lars . . . the flashguns were provided RAW . . . and I believe it was Celestial Toymaker who
    was in charge of all SW TFA weapons and so he could have gotten the T-tracks from GINO perhaps?

    I'm wondering WHO is handing the lightsaber over. It doesn't look like a human. It looks to me like an alien of some kind, with orange-ish skin and a non-human face. Maybe it's one of Admiral Ackbar's grandchildren.

    I can confirm 100% ... it's a real G R A F L E X that you see laszlo ... I have known this info ever since last summer straight from member 3cell, who even asked my assistance to track down a real MPP for production ... which he finally did on his own and sold to Foodles Company Ltd. UK :)

    Oh, man! Good catch! I just assumed it was the new girl handing it to the old girl (Leia). They look like Fisher's hands to me. Some may think the hands are too young looking, but they could also be someone elses hands for close-ups.

    The scene is in leaked concept art. The woman handing the lightsaber over is a non-human, and the woman receiving it is probably Daisy Ridley
