Yes it is a funny transportation story isn't it :D

Both Vivan (indonesia) and R2's (Spain) Sabers were smuggled aboard various star ships
to reach their final destination... (with out having any "imeprial entanglements")

But like any of my other Graflexs...
it's always worth it to see how happy they make their prospective owners ;D

I was very happy when each of your sabers finnaly arrived to each of you ;)

Hahahah... talking about funny.
My friend had to arrange an "act" with his 3 and 5 years old grandchildren, telling them to make "as much noise as possible" like crying, saying good byes, so loud and noisy the security check personnel at the Dallas airport didn't want to keep my friend for too long  ;D

When in transit at LAX, my friend even got a visit from the pilot, because the stewardess urged the package to be put in the cargo instead.
But the pilot recognized my friend from the previous "fuzz" and said "So this is the guy with the lightsaber... " and checked him out.  ;D

I was very happy when each of your sabers finnaly arrived to each of you ;)

And talking about happiness your sabers bring to us...
Everytime I get home from work, the first thing I do is to greet your Graflex, saying "Hello there beautiful." or "Hi, gorgeous!". (I'm serious!)
Well it wasn't so long until I got the complaint from the wife, saying "you never treated your own wife that way...."

 :D

Yes Vivan... A well concieved plan it was  ;)
Your transporter is now a famous Lightsaber smuggler :D


I bet the Pilot is a Star Wars fan as well ;D

Just remind your Wife that no matter how much you like your Graflex...
You love Her more ;D

And besides... She didn't need to be smuggled in a box accross the world :D

I'm so glad you enjoy your Graflex FX-SABER :)

I got word from master Yoda, who bid and won on a graflex 2 cell for me, that he is about to complete a saber stand i asked him for, so i will have the vintage graflex V2 either in ANH or ESB style and then a complete vintage graflex "empty" hilt to accompany it.  I also asked him for an emtpy fx anakin ROTS hilt so i can have an "evolution of a lightsaber" hilt display.  I might convert the graflex to Plecter's luxeon, and I might have the anakin converted to Ultra's luxeon.  That would be a nice lightsaber array.  Ultra anakin ROTS, Hyper luke ANH, and Plecter luke ESB.  I was also thinking on making a Graflex Anakin ROTS, not completely accurate but i like the anakin in graflex mode, it just looks better IMO here's a couple of pics to show what i mean:

right click + view = bigger size.

 

Also dont forget to check the hyper-lux-stock comparative pics i posted on page one of this thread.

So, R2-D2, am I to understand correctly, and correct me if I'm wrong on this point, but, do you like Graflex's?
 You are on your way to a very nice collection!

mmm not much  :D  BUT I LOVE CAPS, CAPS CAPS CAPS!!!! WOOHOO CAPS!
hehehe

Thanks robiwon, at this time all i am getting is the 2 complete graflex's, and the empty anakin rots FX, later on maybe i will try to get another graflex, either vintage or replica to construct the anakin graflex.  And I very much should stop there  ;D

But i know someone who likes graflex's more than i do, and that is master Yoda. he's got tons of them.  and that's why he's so good with them.

One day, somewhat soon I hope, I will have a Graflex as well. I would love to have one of Yoda's with a Hyper blade but just don't have the money right now.

Somehow is a good thing you are not getting it right away Robiwon, you can wait for hyper to release his new sound board that promises to be really good, if you read my review, sound board was not the highlight of the hyper system, but this new one he is planning on might just be.  Also you have time to study connecting hyperblade system to other sound board. 

Anyway, if you decide on it be sure to get the "one piece" blade board, looks just much better without the gaps, i've got the gaps (3 piece board), and just a couple of days i recieved it, hyper announced the gap free board  >:(  so i will either modify mine or get another one (interchangeable blade color would rule)

Yeah, I saw the new LED blade. That would be the ultimate prop for me, and easily the most expensive one. I have no trouble waiting though. When I do have the money for such a thing it will be beyond what is available right now. That thought makes the waiting bareable!

EXACTLY!

But one thing is sure, maybe hyper's system becomes outdated some day, and maybe there will be better systems and all, but a vintage Graflex hilt, will never suffer the same fate.  And master Yoda's work on them will remain.

It's on it's way to you R2 ;D

I do hope you'll like it, you'll have what you need to set it up with your
H-V2 as the Luke ESB
Stock Flash for Luke ANH
MR Hilt for Anakin ROTS


and Yes... this would be a sneek peek at our up-coming Evoloution Stands that have
placement for individual plaques incorporated into them.

Because of Copyright and LFL name issues obviously we can't engrave certein SW names BUT...
We are working on a solotuion for people to be able to print their own and slide it into the plaques.

more on this to come...
