    He needs to work on his English skills. 'The chassis is splitted.' Huh? Oh and graflex flash not included on all of those options. No thanks.

    1. The Graflex Bank is fantastic, so thank you!
    2. When I saw the movie in theaters, I found myself really hoping that closer examination would reveal Luke's force-projection was actually holding the ANH version of his saber. Thought it'd make for a nice extra layer to the moment. Oh well

    The latest Star Wars Show shows off various props from different movies so I can't 100% say this is TLJ and not TFA, BUT they did show other TLJ props in this (as well as the thin neck, I think that was TLJ!) https://youtu.be/cZAryCaRE3k?t=484

    "This is a new build. This was for VII and VIII. This was used on both. We saw what happens in VIII, so I’m really happy to have this one now in this condition"

    Looks like TFA and TLJ shares hero props?

    Wow - great. It does look like the screen used prop. Are those straight pins on there?

    The glass eye looks so different... now with seeing it from a front on angle...

    I tried taking a tgs glass eye, and turning down the knurling on my lathe

    See how like... the space between the flash and the knurling. The silver part of the glass eye, see how much larger it is to the brass?

    It also doesnít have any threading like a vintage...

    In order to get that silver part the same size as the brass ring, you have to take A LOT off the glass eye

    Making it look like this



    But now look at the inside of the glass eye.. it just doesnít look like we see on screen


    These glass eyes must be made completely different... if it were a vintage glass eye there would be threading visible in the space between the brass ring and flash..

    This has been bothering me since I saw TLJ and just trying to find a explanation

    Sorry if this post is all babble... Iím trying to explain something and donít know how to get it out of my brain and down into my fingers to the keyboard...

    Considering that's a stunt, I'd hazard a guess that the whole thing is fabricated. they might use a real red button, but I have a feeling there might not have been room for the real Glass Eye.

    They may have made their own, Luke's stunt there seems to have a thin rim, not the thick brass ring of the TLJ/TFA Hero.

    Maybe because the lady mentioned a blade going in. I think the lady is confused; I don't think this is a stunt saber.
