What did you use for the pommel? Is that from a construction kit?

I like how a play hilt now has the Petite Crouton.

Good work on the hilt MH, though it still seems... too large for my tastes, probably nothing that can be done about that though.

Well the PC is an all around board.  Its not just for show pieces or anything.

Yeah its still thick but not too bad...its actually comfortable.  Its not very long though.  I can barely hold it with two hands.

Very nice! It is an elegant saber! I like the Construction kit pommel on that saber too!
Great work!

I know this topic is old, and everyone has given great praise to it. I just wanted to add on a bit more. I actually love my Yoda MR, and i love playing and spinning it so much, i always thought what it would look like had the switch box been changed out for maximum play/spin, and here it is! By far this yoda makes me happy that i own a yoda of my own! Truly a genius and simple design, but a beautiful one to behold!

This is really awesome version of Yoda! The pommel looks brilliant. Are there still Yoda construction kits for sale with such pommel?

The old MR-616 FX Construction sets with that pommel can be found on EBay:

Ouch! Prices bite. Suppose I will have to find pommel only.

Thanks for the link anyway.

Occasionally I've seen those parts sold separately on Ebay...a couple months ago someone had some up...so if you are patient enough you might get it that way...

...or you can put a "want to buy" up here and see if anyone here has one to spare...wish I could help you but I never got the Construction Set since we don't have RadioShack in Canada and they wouldnt ship here...grrrr...lol.

That really was a strange move by MR.  A construction kit?  I'm sure it would've been really cool - that's basically what my Graflex does, lol.

I got about 20 pommels and 20 emitter sections (all metal parts) from someone parting a bunch out a couple years ago off ebay pretty cheap. Still have most of it sitting with all my parts.
