This thread? Antique Market Find!The magazine I’m thinking of I think was about movies.. it wasn’t a Star Wars title magazine
Eerrrr I’m not going to fall asleep now
It had to been mentioned with in the last 4 months
I distinctly remember because that’s the oldest magazine I’ve ever seen mention “graflex flash handle”
Dang it.. I’m not going to bed now until I find this thing
You’re welcome. The credit really should go to Halliwax for jogging my memory.Thanks scarf man - much like Halliwax I was going crazy trying to remember where I had seen that. I thought I had downloaded the images, so I was searching through all of my files today with no luck - nope, I hadn't. But you can be sure that's the first thing I just did, plus I bookmarked that link!
Again— the tech manual. When I found my Graflex it was in a box with other flashes including the synchronize. It was the Energizer commercial that made me think the Heiland was Vader’s saber (funny since the bunny was NOT a Heiland or MPP), but the tech manual blue print of Vader’s saber was based on a Heiland— so I was amped thinking I had it.First I heard of it being a flash handle was probably 1992 or so, and I upgraded my flashlight-saber to a Sol-King flash that I bought in an antique store. I remember buying a press camera in Germany that had a Graflex flash, in about 1998, and someone on an British photography message board mentioned the Graflex flash being used in Star Wars. It seemed like it was "common" obscure knowledge on the boards.
I don't think the Vader lightsaber was identified as an MPP until pretty recently, though I did see a Heiland Synchronar being sold as Vader's saber around the time the Prequels came out at a convention.
