That update was from 2009. I recall it was delayed indefinitely due to manufacturing issues.  More than likely they shelved it in favor of the Luke Reveal to coincide with the Star Wars Blu Ray release.  It will more than likely be the next one they do, now that the Luke ROTJ is out of the way.

eFX 2010:  We know that many of you have been patiently waiting for the release of our Obi-Wan Kenobi Reveal (formerly known as "Xtreme) Lightsaber from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope . Unfortunately, I am sorry to announce that we have temporarily postponed the release of this product for now. There were too many manufacturing issues that could not be resolved to meet our specifications. We are now in the process of redesigning the lightsaber from scratch and will be introducing the new design later this year.

There has never been an update from eFX after this.

Yeah don't hold your breath on this one.  They seem to be focusing on their static prop hilts, like the Maul.  Not a bad thing but dang that Obi Xtreme was wicked!

maybe they will wait for the anh 3D release.

Im not digging the maul. i get what they are doing, its a fantastic concept having it made from ray park's actual hilt used for TPM...but i much prefer the obi "Xtreme".

re:   Maul "made from ray parks' original"  :-\



the screen used maul was a piece of plastic.    ::) this is just another 'stunt saber' from their "precision cast replicas" line.

the entire line is completely flawed because they are not making replicas of "stunt sabers" AT ALL;
they are reproducing "hero hilts" in resin instead of metal... and simply calling them "stunt sabers" because they are resin.  

((note: the 2 luke ROTJ sabers from this line are the V1 hero hilt and the V2 hero hilt -- there were NO "resin" versions of these sabers on set.
these are not "Replicas" of any "stunt saber" that existed in Reality(tm).    they are "hero hilts" made in plastic, instead of metal (like a hasbro toy)).

 
 

BUT --->    ray parks' Maul hero hilt WAS a resin stunt saber, in Reality(tm) ;) hehe.      

SO now finally they can call this (plastic) product of theirs a "replica", without LYING about it.   ::)  (cool beans).

BUT the very IDEA of turning that cheap plastic-stunt-saber-line into the new "LE" line,  is EQUALLY ill-conceived.

--> NOW we're passing off those cheap resin abominations AS the new "LE" line!?  using the (plastic) Maul as the centerpiece for their New Definition of what "LE" means !?  :'(  :'(  :'(  :'(  :'(  :'( this makes baby anakin cry.

 
 

its better if they just (LIE TO US) and call them "Replica stunt sabers" like before (even where NO such stunt saber existed) --- I am NOT looking forward to an entire line of PLASTIC "LE" sabers.   >:(

the eFX obi was announced in 2008.     it never happened.    (it is now 2012).  time to stop waiting.

I think it will come.  Right after the HFX Qui Gon  ;D

Thing is, the Qui Gon FX was never promised nor ever mentioned to be in production like the ObiX was

Bumping an old thread, but This is an example of why in my opinion EFX can't handle the Star Wars license. They don't produce enough and their communication is little or non existent.
