Diifference between MPP 2.0 and DV6?
« on: February 18, 2016, 04:56:19 AM »
Hi, can somebody please explain the differences between the two?
I've seen Korbanth's pictures and each of them have 2 variations. One of the variations on each look almost identical to the other so I'm wondering which to choose. Can anybody shed some light on them please?
I assume both are fully compatible with electronics.

Check out his thread for his now live sales run and scroll down to the second set of pics and you can see the difference. The MPP is the larger saber and the DV6 is the shorter Graflex based model. Both are supposed to to accept electronics.

DV6 is based on the hilt Vader used in ROTJ. That prop was created from a modified Graflex.

MPP 2.0 is based on Vader's hilt in ANH and ESB. Similar to how Luke's hilt is slightly different between those two films, so is Vader's, and the different grip lengths reflect this.

Thanks, I was getting confused by the pictures themselves!
I was under the impression that the first set of pictures were all the MPP 2.0 and the second set were all DV6.

So to summarise:
MPP 2.0 - ANH and ESB hilt, longer grip length is from ESB
DV6 - RTOJ hilt, shorter graflex based model

One thing that throws me off is that the MPP is called "2.0" like the graflex 2.0. But Korbanth wrote the DV6 is the "Graflex 2.0 design is modified". I assume this is the one that has the screw off lower section and the MPP is one whole unit that isnt removable? Am I wrong?
