FX Sabers negotiator / wat tambor obi tpm comparison pic heavy

The FX Sabers negotiator and Wat Tambor OBI TPM comparison thread

ok before we start this isnt a which is better thread im just showing the differences in the 2 hilts

i had quite a few request to do this comparison i was even asked months before i even received the wat obi so heres a bunch of pics of the 2 side by side
the fx sabers version is a parks sabers hilt iv no idea who the machinist is

ok the wat tambor obi is thinner than the negotiator and the machining cuts are cleaner and more defined and sharp the biggest difference is obviously the thin grip on wats
only with them side by side would you really notice the little things like the edges etc but i was supprised by how thinner the wat version is
other differences to note are the bezels on the negotiator are actually hex screws instead of the windowed bezels on wats and the pomel cubes are alot sharper and the correct shape on wats
sound wise they are both pretty much the same mabey the wat tambor version is slightly louder but it is using a 2 watt speaker

to keep it simple the negotiator is on the left and the wat tambor obi on the right in the pics




Notice the cuts in the shroud are much sharper and defined on the wat tambor version (middle pic)




im thrilled and lucky to own both they both have enough differences for me to warrant owning both and are 2 of my most prized possesions
i hope this thread answers some of you guys questions on the pair if thers anything else you would like to know just post below

Its definetly one of those situations where if both were placed in front of you and you could only pick one, you would have quite a hard time making a decision...

Thanks for the comparison, I'm sure it will satiate the curosity of a lot of members.


Time will bring the real end of our trial.  One day they'll be no remnants

I agree with Dave. Excellent comparison, and congrats on owning two fantastic sabers.

I myself would definitely prefer the negotiator for its gorgeous crystal chamber, but that's just me!

great thread...
love the comparison pictures.

though before I even read your intro, I was like "yep, that's the Wat..." and I am surprised at the differences... until now the Negotiator was like a Unicorn to me...
now I am just amazed how the two compare...

the negotiator is an awesome saber hands down the crystal chamber makes that version and thats what i love about the negotiator
the wat tambor version is 100% accurate down to the last detail and the impossible was made possible that is the reason i got that version

the obi wan tpm/aotc has always been my unicorn sabers and these 2 are incredible in ther own ways

Can't believe how distinct the change in the grips is. Quite a bit of difference there.

It's good there are quite a few differences, makes each one unique :)

just wondering if anyone knows the correct differences in the tpm and aotc versions of this saber are the pomel cubes different on the aotc? ( as in no cube holes )
anything else?

Your correct on the pommel cubes being solid in the AOTC version. I believe the color of the hemi in the valve may be a different color between the two, Purple in TPM and Blue in AOTC? In the Star Wars AOTC Visual Dictionary, there is also no black o-ring as seen on the TPM version, below the top section of the hilt.  I could be wrong, but in TPM, Obi's Blade seemed a darker blue vs more of a sky Blue in AOTC, IIRC.
