id like to share my latest pair of sabers with you all

The FX Sabers Vintage Graflex IV & V Shadow Box set


This is a very special set indeed and has been on the cards since way back in early 2011
yoda has done an absolut brilliant job on this pair i will get to the specs and features shortly 1 of which aint been done on a yoda graflex yet as far as i know  8)
the IV is cleaner and more newer looking than the V which is how it would have been in the movies anyway the V is alot more grimier and weatherd, we went with the screen styling and they both look superb, both are running cfv5 but are quite different from one another

the IV has an RGB led set for sky blue and 1 watt speaker using cr123a batterys this was so i could give yoda max room for building the crystal chamber this was always the plan for the IV its all about the beautiful crystal chamber for this one and beautiful it is indeed..  the V has the 10 Watt system in place with the xennon white foc and 2 watt speaker, now thers no foc on the IV as its a lux 3 so yoda decided to use the foc in the actual crystal chamber and it looks awesome
when you activate the foc you get a flash of light running through the crystal and it looks amazing and totally changes the look of the crystals during foc
what is incredible is that both chassis are almost identical in lenght which is an acheivment in itself the only difference is the size of the crystal chambers
the detailing in the IV chamber is like none iv seen with lovely gold rings seperating the chassis discs ..no longer is it a solid peice thay are now fin like i also got to mention the crystal, its HUGE around 1" in size and it looks awesome, its the biggest crystal yoda has used yet i also managed to get a vintage exactra calculator for the bubble strip and looks way better than any replica strip  8)
The V is your usual 10 watt system with a smaller normal sized but very detailed crystal chamber the 2 watt speaker makes it very loud, slightly more weatherd than the IV and has screen accurate styling they are an inseperable pair and are complete in a beautiful double shadow box
i will treasure them for ever

Wow Steve!!! :o so much epicness right there!!

I know this has been a long time coming for you, I bet it was worth the wait ;) absolutely stunning, they look magical next to each other. The Shadow Box compliments them perfectly. The detailing on the crystal chamber in the IV is just insane, it looks beautiful.

Cherish those forever mate, you have a couple of masterpieces fit for a museum there! A huge congrats to you Steve :)

Flawless victory!

I like the weathered variation on the brass  pins. Very nice touch! Man that crystal chamber in the IV is legit. As usual, Yoda roxorz my boxorz.

Absolute awesomeness!  I like how you went with both styles.  Too bad the LEDengin's are so inefficient as not to allow for smaller batteries because that crystal chamber on the IV is breathtaking.

WOW I love YODAS Graflex so much  :o

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.

Awesome sabers buddy!

What do you use as a display solution for all your sweet sabers?
Are you still working that out?

Very cool. I like the video, too. That thing looks like a prized jewel. Crystal chambers on these sabers are amazing to see the light dancing around the acrylic parts.

A lighted glass display cabinet is definitely the way to go Steve, I bought one a little while back and looks amazing with my sabers on display :) like you said too, it keeps the dust off them and allows them to stay nice and safe whilst being out for everyone to see.

Are those real Graflex's or replicas? If replica, what brand?
