Luke ROTJ Version 2 (as first built) completed!
« on: July 25, 2006, 01:33:36 PM »
Well, almost. I'm still waiting on my cone knob. But as you can see in the pics it looks great. The mods are as follows. The neck and bottom portion of the hilt were painted black, d-ring from Luke ESB added, Graflex clamp from Luke ESB added, the on/off switch is now poking out the side on the clamp. Again I'm still waiting on the cone knob. I got one from a Dewback member. I also have to add the emmitter tube detail as well. I just couldn't wait to get pics up. So what do you guys and gals think?

Very nice Robiwon!  Can you get a pic of the on/off switch.  I'm interested in how that looks.

You can see the switch in the second pic. It is in the right side hole on the side of the clamp. In the third pic you can see the switch sticking out on the left.

I don't know why but I like the clean look of a "as first built" V2. I don't like the scuffed and scratched V2. Keep an eye in the for sale section though. I just may sell this to fund the new Obi when it comes out.

Yes it is the ROTJ switch. Basicaly the band portion of the clamp is sitting over the hole where the old activation box was. The switch is rubber cemented into the battery guide sleeve. The hole in the clamp was enlarged slightly for the switch to fit thru. You have to realy press you thumb over the switch to turn it on and off as not much of it sticks thru.
Edit - Sorry for the double post.  :-[

VERY nice.  I've always preferred the V2 to the Hero.

This is such an easy conversion that MR should do it as well. The Luke ESB Graflex clamp fit the ROTJ hilt like a glove. I had to sand off the tabs that are bent to the inside that help hold the clamp to the ESB hilt. Other than that it fits great.

I'd be all over this conversion, but I can't see myself tearing up my ESB for it.  If I could find a broken ESB for really cheap, I'd definately do this.

I was lucky as I had a broken one already.
