Just so you know, Lemme, those pics are the reason I'm considering the Ani ROTS. It just comes down between that and the Luke ESB....WHICH ONE??!!  :'(

np

it's weird tho... in all the videos (taken in the dark..) ive seen, if u pause JUST when the saber begins to ignite, and is about 1/2 way up the blade, the rest of the blade appears CLEAR... why is that?? or am i just seeing things??  ???

Title: Re: how bout some pics

Go with insinct guys. If you cant decide which one to buy just go for the one you want. Nevermind technical specifications, collectability & all that shite just get the one ya want.

Very very true the collectability of these glorious objects seem to be increasing every day.
Title: Re: how bout some pics
Post by: skizzoid on June 24, 2005, 11:11:00 AM
But once MR stops being so backlogged, there'll be more out there, and prices should drop a little bit.  Prices are a little inflated now because there's such a small supply of them, and people can be a little impatient, to say the least.  So the prices should calm down a bit when the new shipments go out, but you're right in that the value of these things will very much increase in the long run.
Title: Re: how bout some pics
Post by: trexy on June 24, 2005, 12:49:18 PM
why does the gen.2 sabers and gen.3 sabers cost the same?
Title: Re: how bout some pics
Post by: Bigdog01 on June 24, 2005, 10:26:02 PM
Because neither ones are available right now.

Once the Gen 3's start being shipped, the gen3 price should come down a bit, and the Gen2 should start going up a bit.

Supply and demand...

do u have an FX? or did u order one yet? i have a feeling there are way too many people missing out on FX sabers.. like i am.. tho im getting one later anyway..

as for the pictures, nice collection there.. how long have u had those?
Title: Re: how bout some pics
Post by: DarthShlick on July 01, 2005, 04:05:49 PM
I ordered the Mace and Vader sabers. Only a matter of time before people start filing reports of a crazy man with two sabers running a-muck in town.

It will be fun, look for me on the news...... ;D ;D
Title: Re: how bout some pics

i will definetly look forward to that haha...i think my lightsaber will be hidden from the public, aka my family and friends because i know they're all going to be jealous, ah i cant friggin wait somebody put me in a time chamber or something.
Title: Re: how bout some pics
Post by: DarthShlick on July 05, 2005, 08:55:33 PM
Anyway, I will definitely try to post some pics of my mace saber on here and compare them to Phin's, it'll probably be no competition whatsoever, but I just want to see. I'll get some of my vader esb on too. Has anyone seen the lightsaber art pics, I want to see if I can make some of those, they were pretty cool, I don't remember where I found them though.
Title: Re: how bout some pics
Post by: DarthShlick on July 05, 2005, 09:02:17 PM
OK, I just googled it, does anyone know how they did this, was it like a panorama camera, or can you do this on a digital camera, can someone tell me? Very intrigued am I.

Title: Re: how bout some pics
Post by: skizzoid on July 05, 2005, 09:29:10 PM
Just do a long exposure shot where you leave the camera aperture open longer than a normal shot.  I'm pretty sure most digicams have the option for doing this.
Title: Re: how bout some pics
Post by: DarthShlick on July 05, 2005, 09:31:48 PM
So by doing that, I can create the panorama effect so I can create some pics like the "lightsaber art"?
Title: Re: how bout some pics
Post by: skizzoid on July 05, 2005, 09:52:14 PM
It's not a panorama effect (which would be a super wide picture), but more of a strobing effect.  But yeah, you too could create this lightsaber art, of which you speak.
Title: Re: how bout some pics
Post by: DarthShlick on July 05, 2005, 09:57:34 PM
The panorama isn't necessarily just a wide pic, that is just what it can do, I just want a picture that spans over a couple seconds instead of a micro second. But if the strobing effect does this, cool. I mean look at that pic, that picture was over at least two seconds long, the way they did all that stuff with their sabers, it's just cool.
Title: Re: how bout some pics
Post by: MasterMace on July 06, 2005, 05:28:05 AM
those mulitple generators out there that can be used in movies to create the lightsaber look and sound. flashes and sound effects can also be added if you have a good movie editing program.
Title: Re: how bout some pics
Post by: The Reign on July 06, 2005, 11:27:02 AM
You know it doesnt seem to matter what kind of camera the Fx lightsabers are captured on they all look fricken awsome. The look on peoples faces when they see footage, pictures etc is a peach.

Post by: Duke Flyswatter on July 06, 2005, 01:39:58 PM
Hey its me again......
I would have to say the luke ep 5 and anakin ep 3 are the brightest by far....luke's however is a bit more of a light blue color while anakin's is more of a royal blue. The best thing though is the volume of the anakin saber is about 2 times as loud as the luke or any other saber i have for that matter. If your going to buy just 1 saber the anakin ep 3 is the one to get.....small size, bright blade, loud flippin volume. The only drawback is the weight and heft isnt there like the others. It feels a little more "plastic" even though it is mostly metal. On another note i would have to say other than the blades my favorite part of these sabers is the sound authenticity. When you power up luke's ep 6 it sounds exactly like the scene in rotj where luke turns himself in to vader. "i see you've constructed a new lightsaber" the power up sound is like a crack of lightning......very authentic to the sound in the movie. The same can be said for BOTH vader sabers...ep 4 and 5 both being slightly different and very sinister. the only one thats a bit weak in the sound is the original aotc anakin however the motion sensors in that one work VERY well. I can just hope that the windu saber will have the exact power up sound as when he puts it up to jango's throat on geonosis. then my hopes will be fufilled. I am slightly worried after reading the review but being the first saber he (the author) ever had i think his expectations were probably high. Anyhow i will try to post a link to an MPG showing the differences in sound for everyone when i get a chance..... but first i need to check my doorstep for the 200'th time this week for my windu....lol  :o

Nice rack... sorry, couldn't resist. ;D  But it is a very cool looking way to display FX sabers.  I like displaying mine horizontally, but I worry that the blade's gonna "warp."  If you look at it sometime when it's on the base, the blade kinda curves a bit near the end; I don't know how permanent that is, if at all, but it bothers me a little bit.  And I imagine a similar problem wouldn't show up if you have the blade displayed vertically.  Anyways, great find!
