We will never turn down a post Bin Adam. Of course only do what you want to but it does help some of the guys that are on the fence about a particular saber.  Most of us here are into hearing the good the bad and the ugly about sabers.  How else can we make an educated decision on a future purchase.

So go ahead and post a review if you like "but don't make it look like you are posting a review."  "I don't know fly post casual."  lol   :D :D :D

Peace be upon all,
Well, I guess it just wouldn't be right to get a saber like that and say nothing  ??? So I will definitely try and share some sights and sounds.
thanks for the feedback TK-421.

WHOA!!!  :o

I've been away from this forum for quite some time so I was unaware of the Graflex FX's by Yoda. Pretty spectacular! I still have yet to read all the info about them but they do seem to be most impressive!

Anyways, I can't say for certain until I receive my MR Luke ANH, but I think I'll be content with it.

The MR Luke ANH is Definitely worthy of my collection. 

It's not like its a Hasbro lightsaber, afterall.


Plus I would not group one of Yoda's works of art in with any of the MR sabers.   His is in its own class.

May The Force FX Be With You!

I agree, Master Anakin. Graflex and MR are two different classes. With that said, the MR Luke ANH is the best IMHO MR FFX ever made. Accurate sounds and size, second smallest hilt, (Behind Yoda's) longest blade of ALL FFXs, lightweight and detailed and for crying out loud, I can shave off of my "bunny ears", they are very well crafted and smooth. I still don't see what the crying about the "bunny ears" is?

This is a MR folks, not a custom or prop. But that's my two cents.

I agree with your...err... agreement  :P. And also especially considering that, depending on where you go, you can pick one of these bad boys up for under $100.

Welcome back leatherwings.

And yes Yoda's graflex's are truly spectacular, I have the ESB.  But you can't compare them to anything else because they are a league all there own.  It's like comparing a Ferrari to a Mustang.  Both are nice cars but that's where you cease in comparison.

Ferrari being the MR ANH, eh?

"Just kidding....you're alright!" -

Nothing come close to the Master Yoda Graflex.

Since I already have a Yoda made Luke ANH + ESB, the answer is easy.

I have wondered if Yoda will be making an Anakin styled hilt....

I voted yes. I personally like it and will keep mine. The sounds on mine are superb and very responsive, the best I've personally seen on any of the MR sabers I've handled (for the record I've only seen the Luke ROTJ, Darth Maul, anakin ROTS and the Joe Jedi kit).

I doubt I will ever own a Yoda made Graflex, vintage or replica, so the MR is a nice display piece to just hang on the wall and occasionally take down and swing for a bit. (Of course I would like to own a Yoda but.....)

I revived this thread because I was inspired by Elandron's beauty.

http://www.fx-sabers.com/forum/index.php?topic=16538.0;topicseen

And I'm on Yoda's waiting list.  ;D

I bought the Luke ANH for my best friend, and I really liked it. The feel of the hilt in my hands was wonderful. But I've also previously owned a Yoda Graflex (if you want the whole story, I'd need to start a new thread :D ). Even though Han said:
Graflex and MR are two different classes.
In my honest opinion, a lightsaber is a lightsaber. I only want one of each model, and I want the most movie accurate of each one...be it MR or whatever.

So, obviously, I voted for Yoda's Graflex. That will be the only Luke ANH/ESB lightsaber in my collection.  ;)

I was going to resurrect this one because I have a little at the moment and I have many reivews to write and depict, including Master Yoda's Masterpiece. I have one of the original ANH Graflexs and it is in a class of it's own! That's for finding this old fossil! I will stand by my opinion as you just cannot compare the two. And the ANH is more of a lightsaber to me than the clunky ESB model.

Well,  I just got one from ebay with the intention to dismantle it for the sundboard,  as it was only priced at $49.99 bin....expected it to be damaged at that price,  but when it arrived humming in it's box (yes,  they shipped it with batteries,  and it somehow got activated during shipping) I found it to have been shipped in the original box as well.  The saber is near mint condition,  with no creaking in the blade.  I'm not sure I want to take it apart now or not..... :o
