    That's definitely a photoshop error. It looks like they tried to comp in the kobold clip to look legit, but forgot to get rid of the stunt black endcap.

    Not sure if these have been posted else where, but these hi-res posters give a pretty good look at the the TLJ graflex.
    Those look like rivets to me!

    I agree, the holes look very round, dont see any hint of a geometric shape. You can also see hints of the flat surface from the rivet gun pressing against the rivet when its pulled.

    I agree. Definintly looks to be rivets on this one. Mainly because of the flat top. With a curved top I would guess more towards and Alan/hex screw but the flat top sells it for me. Looks alot like a 1/8" pop rivet

    I wouldn't trust my judgement on this (!), but I can kinda make out a hex shape on the left one...

    But I can also see them being flat.

    I don't think there was ever anything as clear as this shot. But I'll argue until I'm blue in the face that TFA had rivets

    Thank god we finally got a real good shot...

    Now is that a folmer flash?

    I believe there has still been some debate over rivets vs. hex screws, but if that's the hero prop, then I'd say rivets confirmed! At least for TLJ anyways.
    Best look we've seen yet.

    Looks pretty conclusive, but how awkward to 'shop out the activation strip and stuff. My eyes see a Graflex, but my brain says it's impossible to hold one like that.

    I always wondered why he didn't get it fixed. I mean, in the PT era it looked like cybernetic parts were robotic, but in the OT, fake flesh seemed available. He started with it-- I get he didn't have time between Jabba's barge and everything else to stop and get it fixed-- but after that?

    Maybe the fake skin doesn't age well, and in his solitude on Ach-To, he simply never bothered to leave the planet to have it replaced. IF he could leave the planet, that is.

    I always thought that he kept it that way as a reminder... the way it was for him in the throne room duel after he lopped off Vader's hand and compared his mechanical hand to what happened to his fallen father...

    Well, that's one way to not sell a bazillion magazines...

    Subscribers will receive their copies in the next few days, while the regular newsstand edition (also holographic, yet to be revealed) goes on sale Thursday 7 September.

    I so would have bought the magazine just for that cover.

    Oh well, at least it confirms that they're Phillips Head Screws with the centers drilled out!
