Cool hilt....

I wonder what the new hasbro sabers are going too look like. It was hasbro that took over from Master Reps wasn't it?

And if it's Hasbro they're known for having the WRONG saber handle quite often!  ;D :D ???

Yeah that is for sure.

The like to screw up Luke's sabres in the 3 3/4 scale figs all the time.

That's kind of cool. I'm guessing it's going to be a bit smaller than a normal hit considering the size of the character?

The only thing I don't like is the lack of grips. I've never understood sabers designed with little to no grips.  ???

So no more Force FX sabers for me. I just hoped I'd see the Vader ROTJ Force FX saber one day... :-\

As for Ashoka, I'm not interested in Clone Wars. The saber looks cool, the stand is imaginative but the new eFX sabers don't come with display case.

Yes the lack of display cases for the new efx items is a bummer. I do know a guy who makes cases near me but he takes about six weeks to complete them due to his job and many orders he has. I have several of his cases for my items and they are in the MR style.

I have most of the MR line of sabers (passed on variations) and thinking this one might be a nice addition to the collection but it will depend on the future.

I don't like this saber its a bit to much of it all, I see Anakin, Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon parts in it. I'd rather have a complete new style.

The Hasbro Lightsabers will be almost exactly similar to the MR versions (that is what my first glimpse of them told me).

It really is a shame that EFX doesn't make cases but in the end its about the saber and not the cool looking case or display stand. But there are alternatives......Kodofett anyone!

Seems that Kodofett doesn't make cases anymore, in fact there were some problems at Rebelscum with orders and such...

Well for him it was a hobby which he did next to his job, but in the end the amount of orders was way to much for him to handle. A shame he had nice cases!

Kodofett is the guy I am talking about. He does still make cases but because of a few bad collectors out there who messed him over he no longer sells on sites or ebay. There were a handful of people who would pay with PayPal and then as soon as he sent the order the person would contact PayPal and say item never received. So they got free cases. PayPal did not want to help out Kodofett so he said screw it!

If you contact him and pay with money order or cash he will make you a case.

Do you know someone who ordered a case recently and already received it? I'd be interested in a case from him if he still does this stuff

I just got my Luke Blaster case from Kodofett. Most of my props are in cases that he has made for me.
He is a nice guy. When I get to hang out with him we usually got for lunch and hang at his place a bit.

I will PM you his contact info.

Ouch! A little more than I was expecting since the saber does not come with a display case cover. But I will most likely get this one.

Except, Ahsoka's "clothes pin" makes slicing limbs off easier. ;)

I think I'm going to have to bite.
