    It looks like the Hyperdyne string blades are flexible tape type LEDs . They're probably a lot tougher than the soldered string blades.

    I didn't realize they were even still around! The website looks just like it did all those years ago.

    Celebration is getting ever closer... I hope it'll clear up if they're using the TFA props or not

    This still doesn't confirm anything, and it's the same picture from the product packaging, but I just found it interesting

    That's it, I guess! It does have notches with rivets/screws in them!

    Has a video in it as well, but no view of the saber

    Looks like they are there to me. It's just how the handle is turned implying that the ears are slightly loose like on a real graflex.

    The Graflex looks freakishly small in that pic. What is Daisy Ridley, maybe 5'5" or something? That saber has got to be photoshopped in. I don't think any conclusions about the EP 8 saber can be made from this pic.

    Repeating myself:

    The ONLY thing to trust is what is ONSCREEEN in the movie itself.

    Promo images are even more retouched that packaging shots. This image has obviously been color graded, the blade has been added, retouching is a given since it's a Vanity Fair beauty shot-- nothing about this can be trusted to be accurate.

    No promo material, toy packages, or museum collection pieces should ever be considered as a guide because it has been proven over and over and over that they are not accurate.

    We have to face the fact that unless the graflex has a great hero shot in the film, we'll likely be waiting for TLJ to hot Blue Ray before anything can be measured or confirmed.

    They're using Han's TFA blaster for the Solo movie, why wouldn't they use the TFA sabers for TLJ?

    oh thank god for the rivets! .... wait a minute those look like screws to me j/k

    great to get a new shot. Like seth has stated a few times, i first noticed the kobold is missing. but I'm not freaking out just yet... like seth has said. we can all panic once we see it on the big screen, and panic together!

    Looks like it's the exact same as the TFA standard. I can't tell if the button is a deeper red, or a black though.

    because blue is so hot right now!

    anyone seen the new teaser posters yet? where everyone was dressed in their own red riding hood? looks like Rey and Luke will be sharing the same saber?
