Hey FX-Sabers members. It's been a while since i posted anything but i'm back and glad to review a project that has been in the works since before the CF6 was released.
A lot of time, work, effort, skill, money and confusion went into this project but i couldn't be happier with the end result and for that i have the following to thank; Sanjuro, Slothfurnace, Erv, Yoda, VadersVault, Rebelscum, EFX collectibles, GINO, and most importantly, Mersenne, for being the guy to somehow put these beauties together. I would also like to give a thank you to Dave (c3po) and scottjua for the support. (I sound like I'm accepting an award of some sort  :-\ )

Mersenne (pete) put a lot of hard work and time into the Anh and ESB hilts and i wouldn't have this collection if it weren't for him. When we started discussing this project it was for 2 CF5 sabers with yoda DIY's but then the ESB hilt turned into a modded Yoda DIY to replicate his custom work with a large crystal but it doesn't stop there, I suggested putting a CF6 board in there with the colour eXteneder. I didn't think it could be done but pete was bold enough to take on that challenge. With his work cut out for him Pete ran into obstacles he would over came to finally complete what we believe to be the first CF4 w/CeX Vintage Graflex lightsaber with a customized Yoda DIY chassis. If there are any questions on how mersenne fit it all into yoda's chassis please direct your questions to him on this thread or PM him because I have no idea when it comes to his stuff. Pete is the man, I'm just the client.

I'll just give short description of the sabers because i believe that the photos will say more than I ever could about these sabers.

Great post Luis.
These are wonderful pieces and they look brilliant on that gorgeous Sanjuro stand mate.
It was super fun building these for you - being very, very screen accurate pieces.
We used GINO (from theRPF) grips on both of them. Wonderful Rebelscum replica Bubblestrips. Amazing Solthfurnace ESB cards - soldered using lead free solder.

They both were hard to package up and send away that's for sure.  ;)

Hey, not to forget - but the ESB has a RICE port in the chassis too.

When Luis asked about the ESB having a CF6 + CeX also I thought - yeah sure.
Oh wait a minute ...... He'll want a RICE port too then  :o

We had discussed also using a larger crystal than the DIY kit one too while we were going to use a CF5, but the I hadn't seen the size of it until after the v6 arrived.

Well I am just as pleased to have made these for him, as he does own them.
What a wonderful wish list he had and I'm happy to have been involved mate.
Oh - and what you can't see is that we stuck with 14500 batteries on both Sabers.
For ease of change - if one set is flat and he feels like using either one - he can swap them over.

Have fun with your Lightsabers  8)
it's all Elemental

I have and EFX Luke ROTJ reveal too, and planned something similar when I finally have time to build my own personal Graflex Lukes.

Excellent!!!! Luke sabers are the best!

Epic collection Luis. That stand, with its minimalist features, really complements the sabers without detracting too much from them. And yes, Pete really is the man.

Thank you for the kind words, guys. I'm proud to have this in my collection. It's a shame the rotj saber isn't isn't a cf but the efx still does an alright job and still looks great on display.

Pete did an outstanding job and has raised the bar with this esb hilt.
