Hello everyone

I wanted to share some pics of a Weathered System I've not yet shown.
currently this is not for sale so it doesn't have the full array of
AD pics with specs, but I wanted to show it to people :cool:

Very cool. I am a sucker for a weathered saber, and the weathering on this looks great. Well done!  This weathering would look good on a ESB Dagobah edition as well.

This is the best one yet. Hopefully, you’ll get down your long list of requests to get to my vintage sometime.

So incredible! The weathering really gives different feel to the stainless chassis

Thank you for the compliments everyone I'm glad you like the way it came out  :cool:

I haven't done much for weathering the latest Stainless units because they look
so nice as hero systems but just wanted to show the one weathered unit I have
done with the new chassis.

This is a bit more heavy on the weathering but I did it with an ESB/TFA type in mind
and if I were to sell it I would add the TFA parts like blank clamp with card brass
rimmed glass eye etc...

Other wise as just an ESB it would have had the additional small top grip screws and
blackened Phillips screws in the bottom of the grips.

  • Hi to all,dark side & light alike!
Incredible job as always,Mr Murphy- absolutely love it! :huh: Feels rather poignant in light of the Graflex's fate in TLJ:sad:

  • I love Star Wars so much ,I married her!
As KK said I'm a true sucker for weathered hilts. This is just perfect. I loved the settle touches, even the speaker!
I had to look at it for two days! This is a one of a kind rare beauty.

The pictures are great.

Keep up this awesome tradition because this what you have here (site) is ledegdary

okay everyone I decided to go ahead and complete this system with the EP7 conversion parts
and have put it up on ebay for Auction

Here is more about it int he forum and the eBay link is in the topic
FX-SABERS Graflex 3 Cell Lightsaber / ESB-TLJ/ Now on eBay

I wound up completing this after TLJ came out and it has a theme song that goes with it
Star Wars - The Force Theme (Violin Cover) - Jeffrey Ding He - YouTube
Basically this song was stuck in my head the whole time working on this so it set the mood
for how it came out and I thought it would be appropriate to share it  :yoda:

Found Him on Youtube, Really talented guy in video with the way he did his music and SW version deserves some notice
