UPDATE SEE POST #265


Hi everybody,

I can't help it, but I've got to make more OT replica saber parts!
There's a new item which I can soon add to the list of parts at www.WannaWanga.com :

The VADER MPP SHROUD!

It can be used to convert a Heiland flash to an DV MPP saber. It's very accurately copied from a real MPP flash. (thanks to @Sym-Cha).
It'll be made in aluminium and I'm planning on having them coated with the proper black wrinkle paint and will come with the correct thumb screw and D-ring.

Here are some exciting pictures of the CNC machining:

They will hopefully be ready and for sale mid-August, maybe a little later. Just keep an eye on this thread if you're interested!

I'm posting this here and not in the Project Runs since I'll be selling them through my shop later and there's no need to make a reservation, since I'll be making more when the demand asks for it.

There so many more parts I want to add to the list:
- MPP bulb release with button
- DV ROTJ stunt shroud
- DV ROTJ stunt activation box
- DV ROTJ stunt double ball catch
- etc.!

And of course I still have to make a few more BLUEPRINTS, like: Luke's ROTJ V2, DV sabers, etc.

Cheers,
Roy

*** UPDATE ***

Well, my first batch is ready and available!
Some of you have already found it at WannaWanga: http://wannawanga.com/products/mpp-shroud/

Price is $40

(shipping unfortunately is $20. This is the lowest international shipping price from the Netherlands, since it doesn't fit in an envelope)

Re: Vader's MPP shroud

Roy these look fantastic! thank you for all this work! coincidentally I got aggressive with someone on eBay and accidentally won a Parks MPP, and the shroud could really use an upgrade it looks like. Can't wait!

You are a beast.

I will be searching for a Heiland now...

...so I can make an accurate Vader after you make an MPP clamp.

:D

Re: Vader's MPP shroud

The MPP clamp can be purchased seperately from The Custom Saber Shop ... it's being sold under Graflex/Heiland and is quite accurate and it also comes with a plastic sleeve ... for a reasonable price ... no need for Roy to concentrate on :)

Cant say enough good things about The Custom Saber Shop (TCSS).. and its owner Tim!

Just great business dealings over & over! (not to mention good prices!)

Re: Vader's MPP shroud

Their MPP replica looks suspiciously like Park's, do they have a connection?

Indeed I think their complete MPP is also the same as Parks ... would make sense ... perhaps Roy or any of you guys should contact Tim for 'endcaps only' to become also seperately available to convert a Heiland further?

This is fantastic news! I need a shroud and an MPP bulb release when that eventually happens! Keep up the great work Roy.

Re: Vader's MPP shroud

Parks' MPP shroud has black, straight, rounded sidebars, which are only on the ANH v2.
There is more demand for sidebars for ANH v1 (silver, straight, rounded) and ESB (black, angled).

I made my own silver sidebars by hand and a drill press.. but there is of course some wonkiness because they were made by hand.

Re: Vader's MPP shroud

Roy, Chaim, you guys always make me smile, but my wallet/PayPal hate you. This shroud will fit an MPP, obviously... right?

I also witnessed a CSS MPP clamp pass by my house for a few minutes, and it looked tip top to me too.
