Oh dang this place looks different! Anyway, bunch of new broken Graflex pics:

From StarWars.com:

From the Star Wars Show:
4.jpg 5.jpg 6.jpg 7.jpg 8.jpg 9.jpg 10.jpg 11.jpg

From Phil Szostak (@PhilSzostak) on Twitter:

And for future reference, in case you want to go find them without digging through all these threads, they're all available in the Graflex Bank Gallery - which btw, is being cleaned up from the mess that it was. ;) So far ANH, ESB and most of TFA galleries are on the new cleaner look :) Working on the rest!

I've had this link saved since april and forgot to grab some screenshots from it. Then today I was finally getting to it, but it's in 480p! Ah!

Does anyone have the Target Exclusive TLJ bluray, and the ability to get some screen grabs from the "Meet The Porgs" featurette?

These are the shots I'm interested in getting in higher quality:

I'm also wondering, could this be the resin stunt?

Isn't he the guy who's done tons of really pretty concept art, including blasters from Solo and Rogue One? Seem to remember seeing the name 'Savage' in the images as the signature..

Someone posted these pics from Launch Bay on facebook (He found them on pinterest) - better replicas than they had before or screen used prop?

You can see the tape pretty clearly on the bottom!

Title, yeah the tape is definitely clear in that photo, and if you look really close you can see the tape doesn't cover the whole end of the cap...you can barely make out some of the original Graflex stamping in the slot of the kobald. It's almost like they added the tape during filming, after they realized the stamping would show up during close up scenes. Interesting!

Yes!!! Wicked theory on the reason why there isn’t tape under the kobold!!

Those new "Launch Bay" photos look like the setup from Awesomecon back in April, complete with black curtains and cement floor. That said, I don't remember seeing the photo of the bottom of the Graflex from that event before.

(Edit: attached a photo of mine from that show.)

It looks like the bottom face of the graflex/kobold are black. Maybe black resin with the silver added?

Now I wish I didn’t hate Porgs. Totally over looked this video

Nice little pics of the resin stunt though!

Still interested in higher res pics from the porg thing if anyone can help!! ;)

About the awesomecon pics - can the spots on the beertab be seen in TFA or TLJ? I couldn't see it on any of the shots I have

(Might have been discussed in the other thread? I just skimmed it)

Star Wars Show showed another Graflex the other day. Madlyn said it was a TFA prop, but I did some comparing and it's the same one they displayed as a TLJ prop at Awesomecon last year

SW Show on the left, Awesomecon pics (from Fusion) to the right. They're also both on the same saber stand
(Shoutout to Drew Baker for pointing out similarities between the 2 in the Graflex Addicts Support Group!)
