    Those thick traces are round terminated before the thin traces begin on the circuit card. Kind of like my first batch a while back...



    Although they are thinner and on the other side of the arc. If we determine this is a screen used prop, I can make there very easily.

    Th clamp is a replica for sure,...I think. I have a real one and a Roman one. There are at least three tells on the Roman one from a real one plus the Roman one, and I think any other replicas, match the metal a bit more than this one. I agree is't some kind of covering.

    The Graflex is vintage for sure but I think that's been well established already.

    Awesome to see it though. Never thought this saber would be seen in a sequel, or ever see a sequel for that matter.

    There's definitely some kind of covering over that clamp. The seam is visible on the right side of that top-down image from Wired, too.

    I'm going to go right now with this, we still have the movie to be released and see what kind of differences are shown. But I agree on being a tape around the clamp.

    It looks like they just spun it in a lathe and peeled it off, revealing the brass underneath. All my glass eye bezels are nickel or chrome plated brass.

    The white background photos are the shots used for the new Visual Dictionary, you can tell by the different color metal of the clamp.

    I'm adding this picture so we get a look at the rusted brass pins, they look of the later kind.

    Oh wow, you're right. Why would they do that? It looks lousy.

    That's because it's an epoxy. That's common.

    Now that we have these pictures i'm seeing the difference in color, the clamp being more golden because of that "tape"

    It's hard to tell, but it looks like the glass eye might not have knurling.

    So for sure the wired.com photos and the one on display at Disney are different sabers, the Wired one has the brass looking clamp and has a smoothed off glass eye.

    Maybe it's a stunt GRAFLEX, that would explain the knurling not being there.

    Yep, even the grips are different with the ones seen in the Fathead poster being very square and symmetrical as for the Disney ones, the middle fin is more broad from below like Gino's and Roy's grips, and the Hex Screw/Rivet dilemma.

    With the golden clamp, squared grips, and non-knurled glass eye, seems like the Wired/Visual Dictonary photos are of the hero, yeah?

    From what I can tell, I need to make a new clampcard layout with slightly thinner traces on the right side of the rounded thick traces for a TFA clampcard. Here's a question, what should go on the other side? Anything?

    My ROTJ V2 cards have the ESB squared trace layout on the other side. I suppose I could just not put anything on the opposite side of the TFA card...

    Assuming those photos are legit, I could have a batch of TFA cards ready within 3 weeks or so.

    Do we think they're all gold? or do we see any silver traces on there?

    Looks all gold to me.
