not too unique  ;)

I have a Larbel Obi-Wan luxeon conversion by JSS.

:)

I'm going to have to change the battery soon and I have no idea how.
I'm afraid to take it apart, I'll have to email him for instructions.

hahaha


I was going to display it next to my MR EE Obi-Wan TPM edition, but I thought it would look
funny having two full-size next to the mini when I was trying to just display my FXs next
to their mini-counterpart, so I figured I'll try selling the EE and keeping the Larbel conversion.
I asking less for the EE than I paid for the Larbel.  ::)    My first Larbel was an EL conversion done by, I think it was
sithplanetusa.  ended up selling it to buy two more Larbel Obi-Wans (unconverted), then traded one and some $$$ to JSS
for the luxeon converted one and gave the last Larbel to my brother as a birthday present.

Nice!!

And nice VF-0's you have there too.  ;) I just got my first one Friday the VF-0S and it was floppy so I used hot glue in a few spots and it's very sturdy and I can always remove the glue without any damage if I ever want to transform it.  But since I was gonna display it in fighter mode anyways it's no big deal.

2010...I certainly hope it's better than 2009 was! ::)
10/10/10~Well, so far with my Father's passing away, I'd say that this year was actually worse than 2009, even the fact that I now have a full time job (For now) isn't anywhere near enough to make up for that...so...maybe 2011 will be better? I'm not holding my breath... ::)

That's right Chowser I forgot about yours :D
Youre right it was unique for about a month and then you got yours done.
But at least they are the only 2 out there so far. ;)

I believe yours has th 1inch blade right?

anyway to get the battery out you'll want to unscrew the covertech beltclip wheel
and the bottom pommel will slide out.
You may need to remove the sleeve to get you fingers in ther and push it down
(becareful as the edges in there are sharp!
That should do it but you can always email him or send me picts and I can help walk you through
it I'm sure ;).

Hmmm I'd do this just to have been able to do the Quigon ;)
I had one but it was the wrong type.

If it has the rounded body where the slats are actually just grooved into it I may be able to do something.
Th ones that are actually cut like the Prop with the slats cut through are not because there is no where
to put anything other than a 9volt battery.

The Round body EL's are very rare so be sure it's the right one, just PM me and I'll take a look at your picts. ;)

do be aware, it won't be until after C4 and after i get through a few Graflexs that I can get to it IF it's the right
type 8)

the slots aren't that deep and it does have room for a 9-volt.Sorry it's taking so long I don't take a lot of pics.I'd say the slots are about 1/8 deep.I'm in no hurry and the only con I'm going to is Dragon con.It's the only one I could get the days off for

It sounds like you may have the right one ;)

If the slotting is running around the circumference of the inner saber as opposed to through it
then it should be do able 8)

But pictures I will still need in order to say for sure ;)

Besure and take the picts outside in plenty of light so I can see into the chamber and disassemble
what ever parts you can so I can see as much as possible.

Also let me know a time frame of when you'll need it by and we can go from there :)

I'm a little late but are you sure that those are Larbel?

I have a Larbel EL Obi-Wan saber that I bought directly from him before he stopped selling sabers and it looks a lot different than that. The one in the pic looks more like a Parks or Sith Planet.

Tha Larbel has deeper cuts in the handle, the black sections are not glossy looking and at the time the electronics offered were from lightech industries(I think that's the name) not Parks.
The Parks/Sith Planet doesn't really have any depth in the cuts on the handle and looks more like the pics here.
Because of the deeper cuts on the handle the blade has a smaller plug on it than the other lightech blades, they were made special just for the Larbel sabers.

I'm pretty sure lightech industries doesn't make EL sabers or Blades anymore though.

Here are pics I found on another site that shows what the Larbel looks like http://www.crazyoldwizards.com.ar/forum/printer_friendly_posts.asp?TID=45

I can try to get a pic of my EL larbel next to my Parks/Sith Planet when I get a chance.
