I thought " it" just never sold. ;D

No, the last listing sold for just over a grand.
This current listing shows the exact same pictures and information.  So either he is building them to order, or something fishy is going on with this listing.

I don't think there is anything fishy.  He is sourcing the flashguns on eBay, according to his listing, and building them out.  They have a CFLS with string blade so I think a grand is very reasonable for the product.

Came across this:

Graflex 3 Cell Flash Handle Star Wars Light Saber | eBay

Not sure if it's a good price, but it's the first I recall seeing with a buy it now.

Price isn't bad but the glass eye appears to be missing :(.

So i looked at his feedback for the other items he's sold and the item locations show up as San Jose or Bay Area?  Am I wrong on that?  Why does this say Hong Kong? 

Anyway, the saber looks very cool. Just very odd as far as the mystery vintage Graflex hilts and the Hong Kong shipping location.

Haha... Well, it's a fool's errand, boy. The Emperor's army is infinite. You'll eventually be killed... or worse... and nothing will have changed.

This current listing shows the exact same pictures and information.  So either he is building them to order, or something fishy is going on with this listing.

He has a reserve on his auction that isn't being met. i.e. He wants a certain amount but the bidding isn't going that high so he relists.  eBay allows you to specify a reserve price that if not met, you aren't required to sell.  There's nothing fishy and it's been the exact same item.  I've been following his auctions and they always say "reserve not met"
