well hey all..
im sure you all remember my post's a long time ago about a friend who was milling a replica of Luke's "Return of the Jedi" lightsaber.... and i know that the thread was left for dead when i temporarily left the forum for a bit... well guess what kids?

the lightsaber is about a week from being totally completed....
at the end of the week there will be a total of 5 completed well 4 technically cuz im buying one.. lol
which means if anyone is serious about purchasing one i will post some high quality digicam pics ASAP!!

here are some very rough pics just to wet your wistle..

Yeah sean, some variations are available on eBay. But these are personally made by a friend of Lukes. He's shown us the pics in the past and they're incredible. But the production timeline got a bit screwed up. Like 8 months screwed up.

And a whole lot cheaper than eBay or the collector sites.

yeah, coincides interestingly with luke's disappearance... could be that he sold some before, but disappeared with the money.

Also coincides with the time when I was offering up all those SW toys and he wanted some. Then disappeared.

Funny how that works out. Someone wants to sell something or buy something, a tentative deal is reached and then *poof* one of the involved parties disappears. Happened with Bowling Shirt guy, too.

But those aren't the same ones. That would be a bit misleading to find those Model Master hilts and think they're the same as the ones Luke's friend is making.

Dunno. When Luke finally comes back and posts again, maybe he'll tell us.

okay sorry about the pics not working guys... just right click on them and go to view image... they should come up in a new window...

lol @ bossk and company for joking around about my dissappearances...
price i know will be a hell of a lot cheaper than the one's from Master Replica's and will look just as if not better... ( you will believe when you see the high quality pics )
then i also have to find a way to recieve payment from people with both parties feeling secure with their purchase u know? i want everyone to be satisfied and feel safe that i am not gonna run with their money... cuz im not...

after the lightsaber is made im gonna talk him into contructing a sort of stand to put mine on.... then i just have to order a glass box to put over it and VOILA!! (spelling??) lol

however i will post any info when i get it in here!

im starting to wonder why this guy is making these things once i saw how many things he has to do manually and without machines...
its crazy...

im hoping to have a couple pics posted on here by next week... cuz i dont have a digi cam right now so ill have to borrow my brothers for them

as for price im sure it wont be as much as $200 but as i said i will let you know...
AND NO SHOTGUNS!!
