The "Every Type of Question" Thread....
« on: January 20, 2008, 07:39:24 PM »
Hello There Folks! :D

     This thread is the Ultimate Question Thread. This thread is designed to avoid PMing the heck out of the Moderators' PM Inboxes. I will constantly check this thread to see if there are any questions that require immediate EVERYTIME I sign on. This, however, doesn't mean that you'll receive the answer right away. I may not have an answer, and I will have to seek it for you. Please keep in mind, that these questions are to be valid and not a question like, "Can you help me out. My friend has a new car and he wants me to go for a ride in it with him. Should I?" OR "My cat Bootsie is pretty crazy, how do I calm him down?" The questions that should be in this thread should be thoroughly researched and should be a last resort. The Site has a HUGE number of knowledgeable threads, hence, try using the search engine. ;D Please keep the posts to only:

- asking a question
- if a MEMBER has an appropriate answer, post it

Please REFRAIN from posting an agreement post such as:

- "Yeah, MEMBER 1 is right, go there on check it out"
- "MEMBER 2 knows his stuff. He is awesome and he'll point you in the right direction"

DON'T post an acknowledgement after reading this and keep the lines open for questions! :D

FIRE AWAY! 8)

*UPDATED May 27, 2008*

The Moderators agree with this in Council......Please research you questions. We are now getting topics and posts in regards what can be done with 10-15 minutes of looking up the answer. The Search Engine is tricky to use. So if you need to, look in threads that you think they would be in. Thanks.

ALL NEW MEMBERS, PLEASE STOP WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO TYPE AND READ THROUGH THE FORUMS TO FIND THE SIMPLE ANSWERS TO THE SIMPLE QUESTIONS YOU ARE POSING. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!!! 8)

Read this thread again if you are unsure of anything.....

How does one go about extracting a sound card and clash sensor from a Luke ANH. Is there any way to keep the saber functional after this?

This link suggests that hasbro wont be making any more mace windou sabers or at least it wasnt mentioned. Does this mean that no more mace windou sabers will be made? I was told by someone that this site will have more mace converted sabers in after a couple weeks which is good to hear for sure at least I can get a mace lux i wonder how well the mace was selling perhaps that is the reason why hasbro may not be making anymore of them

By "this site" do you mean Ultra Sabers?

Yes, they will have more conversion kits soon, because Tim at TCSS made more.

If Hasbro doesn't make the Mace saber, the eventually the market will dry up, and Ultra Sabers won't offer the preconverted saber anymore. I bet they'd still offer the DIY version of the kit though  ;)

Great thread idea Tarkin.

How long is the hilt of the Overlord?  I know the emitter and pommel as I have one of each just want to know the body length. 

Reason-  I am still trying to decide how long a hilt is too long.  I don't want to sacrifice any of my internal goodies but don't want the hilt to feel or appear too long.  I think the overlord seems to be a nice size.

I spent 10 minutes searching for Tyranus's exact measurements to no avail.

From memory, the main black part of the hilt is 8-9 inches. Add on the emitter and pommel, and it is around 11-12 inches.

I'll keep searching for the specifics.  ;)

EDIT - WOOT!! Found 'em.

Pommel to Emitter: 12.25"
Blade: 36" (34" from emitter) 1" O.D.
Total (Pommel To Blade Tip): 46.25"
Hilt O.D.: 1.375"

Buy one from EBay and send it to Ultra for a conversion. Also, the Search button is your friend.

Ultra will have more preconverted Maces soon. Patience is a virtue.
