That settles it. I'm in for a TGS Graflex. Now, to unload my 2 mint vintage Graflex. I hope with all these replicas out there being mass produced by TGS, Saturating the market, that I can still sell my vintages. I'll probably have to drop the price way down and take a loss since they're so old.
Tell you what Luke my man...I'm gonna help you out here. I'll give you exactly the same amount you paid for those vintages even though it's been a few years.
No no please I insist. I like to help my friends out in their times of need.

For sure. He'll definitely do another run at some point but this run didn't sell out as fast as previous runs which might suggest there isn't enough demand to justify a second run anytime soon.
Eh, it's fine. I don't mind waiting.
Urm he started with 200 and they are nearly all gone. His previous runs have been a single saber and 100 or less. 34 left after 1 day is pretty good going in my eye's.
Oh no please don't get me wrong here bomb. And you're right of course, still an incredible day for Khal and Francisco and I'm happy for them, they're both good guys. I guess we got used to Khal selling out in hour let alone a day. I would never downplay it. Reading my post again, I could see where it could look that way. That certainly was not my intent. My apologies.
Really, what I was trying to say (poorly I admit) is that since the "mad dash" buying has passed, maybe Khal might be more inclined to wait until a bigger demand grows. Certainly there will be a continued demand to warrant another run, just maybe not in the near future.
Up until now I have had no desire to buy any Disney era Star Wars merchandise; licensed or fan-made (I think they've ruined the franchise but that's neither here nor there).
That being said, I always wanted to see Katana style hilts make it into the universe and I have to say the Ahsoka Rebels hilts are gorgeous. I would break my rule for a set of these.
I wouldn't buy a VV version though. I absolutely would buy and did consider buying a Khal/One Rep version but am going to pass this time because if DA does a run, THAT'S the one I'm buying. I've always wanted one of his builds and he being the King of Katanas, you know his ARs will be the best version out there.
So either DA or KR/OR for me.

There's a couple of companies that make nice ROTJ Hero replicas. One is Vader's Vault who makes a fully built version although they're not always in stock and sell out fast when they are and One Replicas/KR Sabers who make an empty version that's even less readily available and sell out even faster when they are.
But yeah that's a classic hilt obviously. A definite must have.

Hahaha I want that little force-powered arrowhead shaped rock that darts along the ground. Wow, I can't believe I even remember that. I haven't seen that movie since I was a kid. I gotta watch it again soon.
Yeah, CoC was the first true "A Star Wars Story", not rogue one. Ole Georgy was doing a cinematic universe way before Marvel thought of it.
I was afraid of that.... I have an upgraded sound board and super bright removable string blade on a 2004 ESB Luke.... an MR Anakin just doesn't seem like it's worth it to me?
So, forgive my ignorance but what or who is an orbital run? Orbital Machining?
Have they done one before? Or just hope and pray? Lol
Orbital Machining is the company owned by Acerocket over at fx forums (his real name escapes me at the moment). He also happens to be the lead machinist at the custom saber shop which I recently learned myself. He does great work.
Look up "Skinnyflex". That's what he called his Anakin hilt.
Only problem is he takes a long time to complete a run. I'm talkin two years minimum.
So yeah maybe hope and pray is your best option haha.

I was wondering if anyone knows the best way to turn something like a Korbanth graflex or Romans or the like into an Anakin ROTS? I would think it wouldn't be too tough, but what exactly I would need and where to get it or other a dive would be extremely appreciated!
Also if someone has something like that empty.... could be installed too I guess if it wasn't too pricey?
Honestly, don't even bother. I think you'd ultimately be disappointed with any kind of hybrid design. I once had a thought about taking a Prodigal Son and attempting to turn it into a V2 (this was a looooong time ago) because no one was making a solid V2 or any thin neck for that matter at the time. Well, outside of spending $1k+ on a custom hilt from say LDM or Scottjua (totally worth it, just not what I was looking to spend at the time). Then I found Solo's Hold and balance was restored to the force. I now know how unhappy I would've been with my original plan had I gone through with it.
My suggestion darth,...track down a MR or just wait for another Orbital run to happen. Your patience will be rewarded.
Or do what jcru said and pester Aaron to make one. I'll even jump on that run with you

Rogue Five: Thanks for all the effort Luke. It's such a great way to support the forum

ARKM: Yes. Thank you Luke.

Luke Skywalker: Thank you guys for working together to pay the bills. We're way way in the black for this year and most likely part of next year and we still have 40 coins to go. All but six coins have shipped as of this morning. I needed a few clarifications for them.
