    I'm curious about the saber hooks. They are made of stainless steel but will they bend out of shape when a lightsaber is hooked and unhooked? Also will they bend out of shape when bending at the waist? In other words would they stay bent if flexed too much or would they spring back to hold their shape?
    Hi Psab keel,

    The hooks are actually very strong and won't just bend by using them.
    But I haven't used them intensively on a belt myself, maybe someone else has. They are not made from spring steel, but again, they are very strong indeed.
    If you buy it and you're not pleased, I will refund you.

    Thank you for the information Roy. I have some nice hooks but they aren't as screen accurate as yours. Do you have a lot of yours in stock?

    So Roy and I got to meet today ... doing some research and developement for possible MPP/Heiland parts ... Roy also brought some goodies around Kylo Ren 3D printed in black, his G R A F L E X Luke ESB and 5Cell broad sword seen here amongst my many Vader sabers :



    One of which a true vintage MPP ... 'Which one is it ?' :



    Some measurements taken of a Heiland conversion, this is going to be slow progress and some serious thoughts about costs vs. demand :



    At least the shroud is coming together in 3D ... don't turn it on though ... oops ... having a great time :



    Thanks Roy ... for a great afternoon

    Roy took some measurements of Vader's ROTJ G R A F L E X shroud and controlbox as well ... so he's gonna try and tackle those parts too, NeoRutty

    Ha,ha,ha mugatu, ... but those belong in a museum, like my home, ... and I could play : 'I spy with my little eye . . .' with you guys for a very long time

    Indeed there's plenty of props, costumes, modelships, action figures, custom made stuff and merchandise, some of which still packed and sealed in my attic. . . . people don't call it a STAR WARS MINI Museum for nothing when entering my living room . . . and then there's dwarfs, smurfs, witches, Asterix figures, trolls and all kinds of cartoon figures too ... and I'm planning something special to celebrate my 50th birthday in November ... so fingers crossed we get approval to execute order 69

    Hi newmagrathea, No, there is no list and there probably won't be one; I prefer to do unlimited runs for wannawanga.com!

    I also used Roy's Luke ANH D Ring on my OB1 ANH. Like all of the parts at wannawanga.com, it is very very high quality and accurate.

    Thnx for the uproot

    Well, it is clear by now that the T-track was a draft excluder profile, presumably from a car, which was purchased by his production buyer and came on a roll (meaning it must have been flexible) and was indeed flexible enough to bend into shape on the Sterling machine-gun.
    So no cabinet door sliders! No windscreen wipers!
    Exciting!! The hunt is on again!

    Interesting so, it sounds like it was a trim piece that blocked air coming through on cars. My bet is that it would be found around doors, sunroofs, maybe even convertible car tops. And maybe from an MGB or Mini, it would make sense that it would be a British make since they had access to rolls of it.

    If that's what it turns out to be, that's hilarious. When I was looking for something. Like t track for a custom saber, I looked at tons of car weather stripping as an option.

    If I wasn't out of town if head over to British motors (ar restoration place in vancouver) right now.

    I checked several vintage Mini restoration websites for something that fit the description. Most of the images are terrible and impossible to tell what the profile is. I tried check MGB parts websites but they are even worse. More than likely it's going to take some foot work by someone in the UK to find it, there aren't many shops in the US that would carry that stuff in stock.

    Side note, I just picked up a Heiland Synchronar for next to nothing at an antique shop today, I plan to make it a Vader Saber.

    It's interesting that it came in a roll. I'd always wondered about car parts. I believe I read in another thread about them being brown as well?
    And flexible too... The other day at work I spotted some brown plastic but flexible T track in a pile of dust and junk that the house keeping lady was sweeping up. Don't ask if it'd fit the bill,definitely not, but kind of a funny coincidence I think. Ended up grabbing it and using it on my custom saber.
    House keeping lady looked at me like I was crazy
