OK guys, i've played with it a little, now I know, this thing is BRIGHT, my stock anakin looked like it was off when put next to the Graflex V2, seriously.
And the sounds are nice loud.

But the truth is that i have a bad headache right now, so Review+Pics will have to wait. 

I need to play with it more and charge/use the battery a couple of times as indicated by Yoda, to get it working properly.
Also need to compare it (in photo) with my luxs and stocks.

So about the hyperblade: review++pics soon.
About the hilt:  AWESOME, really nice hilt, incredible convertion, super sturdy blade+hilt connection. Craftmanship is amazing. weight, size, all!!!

MASTER YODA your graflex hilts are stunning!

I mean this is a hyperblade and the brightness could seem the best feature in this saber, BUT THE HILT IS STEALING THE SHOW!!!

I love the luke ANH/ESB and this vintage flashgun just made my dreams come true.  I can now hold the lightsaber used by luke. Man i love it.

So off to get some sleep now.  See ya soon.

I'm really glad you like your Graflex and appreciate the effort that went in-to it. 8)
Vintage hilts are most always scratched up a bit and I do my best to clean any corrosion
and polish them up ;)
Do rest assured I work carefully and don't add any more scratches :D
And they always seem to look better when I'm done with them :)

So, power down for a while R2 :D

then you can do the rest of your analysis ;)


Oh and hey, does the shirt fit? 8)

Yes master Yoda, it's an unbelievable convertion.  I love the hilt, it's my favorite, feels so good to hold. Looks so good in the LE saber stand.

And thankyou also for giving me hints on my behavior like:

"power down for a while R2"

Sometimes i feel like human and forget i am a droid  :D

With that in mind: it's my cpu that aches, i need to power down and recharge.

Great analysis, R2. ;)  Thats kinda what I thought about the sounds too, not sensitive enough.  The Hyperblade is quite a departure from the FFX sabers.

Thankyou Master Yoda, i plan on adding to the review as i discover more and more this system has to offer.  I want to praise your hilt convertion once again, cause man! you outdid yourself, it is an amazing hilt and so robust and firm.  No wobble at all.  I love how you can disassemble the hilt and access it's inner guts.  I love the deattachable blade, and to hold the hilt only, it's like having an LE that lights up!! And man! it's freaking bright.  Thankyou, thanks, grazie, gracias, merci master Yoda on such a wonderful saber.

Darth Maul: yes man, that's exactly what i thought. But playing with it more and more I was able to find how to move it and make it do what i want.
Considering this is a system made up from scratch by one man, it's amazing.  There's room for improvement, and that's the great thing about the hyper system, you can upgrade and it keeps getting better and better.  As you say, quite a departure from FFX's but a welcome one.  I love my saber, as i am sure you do love yours.  Thanks on the comments.

Something's wrong with my camera, but i will post the pics very soon.

Wow that is simply amazing, and an awesome saber to behold.

I still can't get over the graflex Yoda made for me.

Very Well Done!

Thanks man.  Master Yoda really outdid himself in this one.  Thanks again master!

Ok guys i know i promised pics and all but i just recently found my battery charger for the camera. So tomorrow is the pic day.  I will do a detail analysis taking pics in daylight, mid light, no light, comparing to luxeon and stock sabers, and using a whole lot of different camera set ups and exposure times.

Anyway, levelnext.. urhmm.. I should start calling you R2 by now..  :D

IT'S SO SWEEEEETT!
*very hard to resist the dark-side of the force is, full of envy I am ;D*

Man, what more could you ask for:
It's Yoda's FX-Saber
It's vintage
It's dual kit
It's Hyperdine system.

It's the ultimate dream saber you're owning right now, the saber that would make every man happy.. every man.

Hahahaha.. so I see, your saber transport was really more complicated than mine  :D
Mine only involved one hub to a friend in Dallas then direct to Indonesia (he also had tough inspections at the Dallas, LA, and Hong Kong airport).
But yours, three hubs? That will be an amazing story to tell to your grandchildren  :D

Yoda really is the best. Top of the top.

CONGRATZ!  :)
