Quick F.Y.I., the Park Sabers hilt is the same as the OWK. Korbanth/Sith Planet gets his hilts from Parks. Also those hilts have gone through a few revisions, one of which was a stainless steel version (as opposed to an aluminum version).
As I previously stated (Korbanth Obi TPM = OWK), I own one. However I have never had an MR version or OM version to compare it to so I don't know how accurate it is. All I can say is that I like it. It's a rather petite hilt so electronics installs are probably a bit tricky but many have done it so it can be done (mine is empty).
I read a lot on the various saber forums as well as the RPF. I have never heard of the AotC hilt being larger than the TPM hilt so I'm not sure where you got that idea other than your own personal observations of the movies. The only difference between the two that I have ever heard of (or at least cared to remember) is in the pommel cubes. The Obi TPM has holes going all the way through the pommel cubes and the Obi AotC does not have holes in the pommel cubes at all. As for the most accurate replica out there other than Orbital Machining's version, I have no idea. I like my Parks/Korbanth Obi TPM just fine though.
You might try creating a thread for this here... www.therpf.com/star-wars-costumes-props/ . These guys are the most anal one can get when it comes to prop accuracy. So anal they make their own diamonds... from clear resin and latex molds (What were you thinkin'?). Anywho, someone there has got to know if there is a difference other than the pommel cubes as well as which replica is the most accurate.
Whilst mowing the yard, I came across a young man sitting on a stump. I asked him what he was doing in my yard and he said "I'm sitting on a stump". I asked him to leave and he just sat there, silent... so I sicced Scary Vader Dog on him. No one, including myself, ever saw that young man again. Moral of the story? When an old man, like the one in the pic below, tells you "Get off my lawn you young whippersnapper!", you get off his frikkin' lawn. Frisbee or baseball... or comfy stumps be damned.
Oh yeah, later that day I sold a Graflex Razor blade plug to grigoris.
The biggest issue is the fact that a real Graflex and a Graflex 2.0 are 1.5" in diameter and the Anakin RotS saber is 1.125" in diameter. There are other differences as well and I'm not sure how many can be "covered up". Basically you would probably end up with something that looks like a hybrid between an ESB and an RotS if you were to try to convert a Graflex or Graflex replica into an Anakin RotS.
Rogue Five: I wish the movie would let you know when there's an end credits scene. I just saw Kong: Skull Island and apparently there was a teaser of another famous monster. Last three movies I saw had nothing after the credits. Just my luck the one time I walk out...

Rogue Five: Why am I telling you guys this? I don't know. I guess I'm a little annoyed. I feel like I didn't get my money's worth lol

Rogue Five: And I never remember to check the internets to confirm

Rogue Five: So to sum up. If you're going to go see Skull Island, make sure to stay after the credits
