Luke Skywalker's Saber Collection/Discussion
« on: March 30, 2006, 02:06:05 AM »
This is a bit of a work in progress, but I'm going to put up more and more pictures of my collection as I get them.

This first picture is of the last time I actually had anything set up for display, several months ago.
(click on the pics for a larger version)



Next is a pic of my Obi Evolution display:



I'll conclude this first post with a shot of my now corrected Luke ANH graflex:



These are all only preexisting shots, but I wanted a place to set aside to have them and/or discuss them.  All of these pics have been posted here before but here they are in no jeopardy of hijacking any other threads. :D

Fantastic collection, Luke.
I particularly like your Obi-Wan 'evolution' collection. The TPM and the weathered ANH stand out as favouites.
I am probably going to have to get an original graflex one day, as well.
The Jango and Han balsters look sweet as well.
I really long for a Luke ROTJ replica but an MR one is a bit outside my budget. I found some drawings with dimensions on the net and am thinking of getting a friend of mine to machine me one.
Really love the look of the Jango blasters. Are they really as golden as they look? They would look great crossed over the mantlepiece, old western style.

Interesting that the Jango got so much attention, but given the dramatic MR case I shouldn't  be surprised.  They are definitely a silver/grey color, it is simply the lighting that might make them look otherwise.  As for the cost, I was fortunate to pick up the pair for, much as they remain now, well below list price.

they are really amazing looking, i have always fancied them ever since AOTC and the ps2 game bounty hunter. 
TBH i did not know until i saw your pics, that MR made them like that.

"Impressive....Most Impressive!"

I've always liked the Han Solo blaster... If I could ever dance with the thought of procuring one for less than a car insurance payment, I'd score one in a heartbeat.

It was as listed on the link with free ups ground included.  However, John was out of the Mauser replicas when I'd ordered so it took a few weeks, otherwise a great experience.

That's a pretty solid-looking piece there.... Thanks for the link.  I bookmarked the site for future reference (i.e., Pay-day!)
