    because blue is so hot right now!
    I was thinking it was more to do with some sort of CGI rig to hold her clothes out of the way for an under arm shot of the lightsaber handoff.

    But you're right, bright blue is the new orange!

    Weird that they're withholding Luke's saber by having him hold the GRAFLEX "Skywalker Saber " in the "Little Red Riding Jedi" posters!

    Jeez the body isn't even cold and you guys are already fighting over the inheritance.

    it's just a toy box photo. An early concept photo for toys that aren't even out yet. The photo on that box is more photoshopped than a Cosmopolitan magizine cover.

    You guys kill me. I'll wait for trailers and actual movie footage.
    I'm just going to leave this right here.......

    Hmmmm, why is Rey's bag bright blue?
    I'm pretty sure Daisy is wearing a blue jacket over one shoulder. You can see a hood on it, with white/cream material inside of it.

    Aaaah! I see the zipper now too, now that you mention it's a coat! The inside of the removable hood read as the material of her shirt to me on first viewing and the collar as a bag strap.

    Good Catch kelli, you are wise in the ways of the Force-d perspective!

    I had been thinking it was that there was going to be some sort of need for them to CGI part of her during the handoff of the lightsaber for some reason or other. Now that I see it as a coat, it's Daisy Ridley's coat, not Rey's, and she's probably freezin' cold up there on the top of Skellig Michael.

    Looks like they took the fabric wrapped stunt from Force Awakens and went with streamlined greeblies on a real Graflex for The Last Jedi. Those look like flat plastic or black-anodized grips, black screws/rivets, and the antenna is an entire pommel cap. Shine through glass eye as well.

    No, I think you'll come back. Just when you think you're out, they'll pull you back in.

    TFA is in there.
    TLJ, yes-- but don't expect it before the blue ray.

    I thought someone was going to " @SethS " for sure just to say teeheehee! @halliwax did it the hard way by finding something of interest. Way to think of a clever way to Jedi Mind Trick 'im back in here buddy!

    I was hoping somebody would mention the tip being taped over instead of your typical end cone.

    They must have whacked the Force out of that thing if it had one glued in originally (assuming that's really the fighting stunt as Kylash pointed out).

    I wonder if the crew had to don protective eyewear during filming of the lightsaber battles for fear of flying endcones? And further, how many times they glued them back in before they gave up and just taped over the tube ends?

    All the stunt sabers have that end on the blades. The don't do the round or bullet tips that replica builders use.

    this looks like a new stunt to me. i think the control box is gone. i wonder if all the props were reengineered by the new prop department? kylo's cross guard also looks different. granted its suppose to be the same, it still looks "off" to me

    i bet they did away with the foam lining around the stunts, and made these "stunt hybrids" with flat rubber grips and no box to make things more comfortable. there is some back stage footage on TFA dvd, of rey and kylo fighting and they just have aluminum tube sabers with the stunt fx blades installed

    time will tell, i do hate this new stunt though.. that black cap and the end really screws with it visually...

    I disagree with you on the last part. I think I really like the stunts just because of the grip diversity with the hero props. These will add a whole new "more noticable" look to our stunt sabers in the collection, in the sense that instead of the only differences between hero's and stunts being subtle (i.e. single screw missing, different tape, missing bolt, etc.), we get to make an entirely different and unseen set of sabers that match the screen used pieces as close as possible but also add a whole new look to our collections. But that's just my 2/100 of a dollar.

    If the "stunts" are used during the filming of the lightsaber duel scenes, I really wish they'd make them less noticeably different. If this GRAFLEX TLJ Stunt shows up on film, I'm going to see that black end cap and fixate on it being different from what it's supposed to look like.

    Everytime I watch TFA now, all I see is the foam grips and it takes the suspension of disbelief away from me and my movie experience suffers from it. Kind of a bummer.

    It's like when Obi-Wan lowers the tip of his lightsaber in ANH during the duel against Vader and his lightsaber "blinks" out for a second, I can't believe during all of the "fixing" that went on for the Special Edition, that noone addressed that.

    Speaking of OT lightsabers, I liked the thin bladed styling better than the new FAT, non-tapered blades.

    And specifically with the GRAFLEX, if it hurt all of the actors hands who've ever duelled with it, why not just sand off the sharp corners? Silly Prop Master, edges are for HEROes!

    Don't even get me started on how lightsaber effects continually get the shaft with each new special edition. From the theatrical to the VHS, to the DVD to the Blue Ray-- they keep futzing, and they never get it right.

    And honestly, doing roto-work in the digital age is criminally easy. Time-consuming, but not hard to do right.

    So this stunt has a kobold clip and d-ring and something over it or behind it? I don't understand what's going on there. It almost looks like back photoshop.
