WTB Darth Vador ROTJ Graflex Conversion kit
« on: January 26, 2020, 09:29:15 AM »
I have an MPP Replica that's prety accurate to the ANH/ESB version but I also would like to get a ROTJ Version. I read that this version is based on the Graflex so who offers the best Conversion kit?

Did you look at the DV6 that Korbanth sells?  I got it in the TCSS May the 4th package last year. Build my it as my first CFX...I have both the MPP and DV6 and like the latter a bit more because it is a bit smaller and skinnier.  I think I also saw in his new product announcement that there might be another one coming this year.

Thanks Scott,

I will take a look. Is it also based on a Graflex 3 Cell body?

Definitely inspired by the graflex...same curved emitter and very close if not the same dimensions. Just lots more mods. I wiill throw up a shot of mine side by side.

So its quite accurate to a real vintage Graflex body?

If I do get a real one or replica base 3 Cell will the parts still fit?

My question is what's the best 3 Cell replica best for Conversion?

You got me on that one...if I look at all of the parts that were used, itís more about the internal parts. All the black round pieces in the top half have holes they fit into on the internal blade holder. Not sure where you would fine parts like the emitter shroud and control box.

I personally also got a replica 3 cell from The Graflex Hop for my ANH version and love that itís so close to the real thing. Feels like a ton of work for every part of you want to turn one into a ROTJ Vader.

Looks like a great deal on TCSS right now...and confirmed that Korbanths 2020 new release email said there would be a dv6 v2 this year.  My only complaint was that the top of the emitter was not black anodized...I painted it, which isnít as good.
