    Thought this might help

    Here's a photo of Prince William and Prince Harry visiting the set of EP8



    If you look closely there's a graflex in the middle of the photo next to Kylo's saber. (Looks like the TFA Hero saber in my eyes.)



    This is the best quality I could find it in. Anyways this could be proof that they're still using the same prop(s).

    i sure do hope they use the same props. i strongly believe kylo's cross guard survives the battle with rey, though you do see a few sparks to me it looks like she whacks the saber out of his hand by hitting the blade very hard. leaving the saber intact. below you can see the saber which looks to be still together

    Im pretty sure it survived as well. Looks like she hit the base of the blade very close the emmiter. Probably would have knocked it out of my hand too.

    The soft stunt fx saber doesn't have them, but it's not the one on the TLJ packaging

    Looks like the Maz box hero.
    Space above and below the grips....plus it looks like the Maz box hero has the brassy glass eye socket.

    Yes, where is this from? And why isn't it a bigger deal? This looks like it confirms the return of Luke's Second Saber and also shows a lot of significant changes. The emitter has new vent like holes and a new elevation for them to boot. And the triangle ring is 90 degrees from where it should be. Why isn't this bigger news? It matches the table from the Princes' visit. Along with the light up stunt Kylo blade. Have I missed something?

    It is old news. There was even a run done by Anakin Starkiller.

    Here is a link to that discussion. http://www.therpf.com/showthread.php...ens+lightsaber

    Well, there you go...

    My Saber game is off. Do we know anything about it? Why it wasn't used? I mean head didn't have it in the film based on production photos. Why it was made? Which video did it appear? I've found the thread of people's completed replicas from the run but I'd love some illumination. I realise we don't have all the answers but boy do I feel out of touch...

    edit: thanks for the link.

    I think it was from the "Armory" special featurette off one of the retail-exclusive blu/DVD releases.

    Why it was made? I'd imagine if you're making a SW movie with Luke in it, you ask the production design team to make him a lightsaber. Why it wasn't used... that's a good question!

    I'll be dissapointed if it IS! I want the V2!

    Or what would be cool, is the ISYHCANL hero but aged to take into account the 30 some odd years with some V2 like weathering.

    Exactly, this is why I'm nervous... really loved the TFA saber....

    why be nervous?
    anh was different than esb. if tfa is different from tlj than I would say at least the prop makers are staying consistent with driving us crazy and making us build more sabers.

    I am not going to let it drive me nutz.

    Looks like a Graflex Stunt Saber without the 'bunny ears'.

    Here's another shot of them dueling:



    Here's a closeup on William's (guy on the right's) hilt. Notice the red button?

    Man, Hyperdyne! That really brings me back. I had completely forgotten about Hyperdyne and the Hyperblade!

    So, it's still an LED string blade?

    That I honestly don't remember... but judging by the lighting when Finn ignited it against kylo at the end. I would have to say yes

    Then again... battling with them would be risking with led strings...

    Maybe they had both versions?

    Yeah, the V2 would be awesome but I'm not holding out hope for that. I just don't want a totally new design or even a (gasp!) saberless Luke.
