I wouldn't mind a bottom piece and circut board "kit" for my ANH... ;D

Oh, and is this one a darker blue than my ANH?  ???

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... ::)

I don't know, that's why I was asking...I remember Yoda saying that the Luke ESB Luxeon was gonna have a darker blue color LED. I was asking to see if this one indeed has a darker LED than the ANH Luxeon I bought from him.

Hello there
In order to get everything to work right it needs to build it all at the same time so that the ESB and ANH bottoms fit
and work properly.
It has to do with slight variations in the sound module battery pin length.
Because all the MR battery pins weren't the same length it's necessary to compensate for this during construction.

Because LED manufacturing colors vary and are even different from each other in the Bin lots themselves...

Here is how I like to use the LEDs for ANH and ESB sabers.

Bin 1 - ESB ( Close to Royal Blue but not as Dark )
Bin 2 - ANH or ESB ( Medium Blue and Looks appropriate for Both )
Bin 3 - ANH ( Lighter Blue some have slight Cyan tone )

Led use and Construction is subject to correct color avalibiltiy so that's why sometimes it takes a while
before we get more Sabers made.

They all turn out Awesome when completed and represent the Original trilogy Colors beautifully ;D

I said the same thing when the ANH debuted...and you can see from the saber on the far right how well that worked.  :P

It's so worth it
Yoda's work is easily some of the best custom saber work I have ever seen

I know IF my house were to be burning down and I could only grab ONE FX Saber, it would be my Luke ANH

Speaking of Luke ESB Luxeon I just sold my Luke ESB FX Luxeon not too long ago. I already miss it.  :(

I'm not a big fan of the Luke ESB (I know, blasphemy) but that sure does look nice.  Great job! ;)

Let's see....

1. Removable blade.

2. A truly movie accurate hilt that you can :

a. Duel with with the blade installed.

b. Put on display and have it looking just as nice as a LE or SE but having the added benifit of being able to duel with it and have fun. Try doing that with your LE/SE.  8)

I would rather sell every FX I have before even thinking about selling my Luke ANH.
