Hello to all.
I am new to the site, but right off the bat I want to say thank you for all of the great information. By way of introduction, my name is Hal, but I go by Ursus. I recently got the chance to buy a couple of reasonably priced second hand light sabers. I stumbled upon the forum while trying to identify them via google. (and I liked it so much, I decided to join!) Both had pretty scuffed up blades. My idea ay the time was to keep the better of two and sell the other off to pay for parts. The first was a hasbro Vader FX, easy enough. But the second one wasn't matching up with anything, It was a 2007 MR. Originally I thought it was an Anikan, but there was something not quite right about the handle. Well after combing the archives, I appear to have a Graflex conversion (unless MR made one their last year). Well at least it looks like a Graflex. The only difference I see after reading up on the conversion process is as follows. The insides seem to be unaffected. For instance, the on/off switch is still on the handle instead of being altered to use a button. There is no calculator lense on the switch cover either, just smooth metal. And while the D-ring looks properly proportioned and is made of aluminum, the battery cover has inside threads ( that is it threads into, instead of onto, the hilt. And the cover is ventilated and labeled Master Replicas 2007. There are 7 "grips" on the handle, but they feel "short" ( they are actually a 1/4" shorter than those on the Hasbro Vader. And last but not least, the guts appear to be stock Master Replica. It has the standard battery holder, etc.
So now am back to wondering exactly what I have. Any Ideas?
I would appreciate any additional information.
p.s. I can post pictures if my descriptions don't cut it.
P.P.S. Those new sabers that Yoda is making KICK A**! I know what I want for Christmas.
