    Which means, unless I somehow get my hands on a second Folmer, that I can't have completely accurate ANH and TFA/TLJ sabers.

    Great.

    I have 2 complete Graflex Inc. flashes and one has smooth pins and the other stepped, some Incs have them. Or you could get smooth pins from TGS and tarnish them with ammonia

    They could have buffed them, or, as it will kill you to hear-- retouched any aging or scuffs in post. It's not crazy to think they refurbed it at the top of production.

    As I said before the hero props were remade for the new film. The information comes from the production insiders. Unfortunately I cannot publicly disclose the name of those people.

    Thatís what I get for not keeping up with all the threads... Iíve got 15 iPhone 6s photos. Had I known I could have tried to dig up a real camera and take a crap load more.

    What would be the best way to share these at full resolution?

    Remade from scratch? Or remade from existing props?

    The SWS video claims the Graflex they show was from TFA and TLJ, (though we all know there was more than one hero).

    I certainly want to believe your claim-- but I'm sure you understand a dude on the internet claiming to be in the know isn't always a great source.

    @Fusion, have you any more of Luke's hilt? It will be perfect to download uncompressed photos

    @Fusion - THANKS!

    If these are indeed used onscreen, these are by far the best pics we've ever seen of them.

    Feel like the Luke saber here is definitely the white glove... and holy god is that box ugly. Worse than the original cave build hero box. @halliwax I know you hate it-- but I thank the stars for the retouching they did on this thing to make it not suck so much on screen.

    Kylo saber-- it doesn't quite have the matte finish as seen onscreen in TLJ or the rough finish of the TFA version. This looks like a replica-- is the endcap red? I can't tell.

    Graflex-- definitely a vintage-- love seeing a bit of the copyright stamp, looks like their endcap isn't a fully circle. Better angle on the eye-- definitely an early folmer-- smooth pins too. Pitting on the bunny ear band is legit. Question is now though-- was this used onscreen or not? The finish doesn't match the SWS video one or anything seen onscreen for TLJ. It almost looks like a TFA saber. If it weren't for the rivets I'd say it looks like the batch made for the Launch Bay displays.
