Just curious if we'll ever see this Gen 1 updated to the newer style. I'd love to get this one with updated electronics. Maybe another Borders exclusive, since the Luke VI is going on moritorium.

First FX I ever bought. I'd totally be behind a rerelease on that, too. It's so cool, I want everyone to have one!

Oh, they've totally got to be working on that. But I would expect a Qui-Gon FX first, and then the Obi AOTC or TPM FX afterwards.

From what I heard from a guy on fxsabers.com the head of product development has no interest at this time in redoing the Anakin AOTC FX. Instead he wants to focus primarily on the OT after the Yoda FX

Well there are only 3 OT FXs that have not been done...Luke ANH (which seems pointless to do really), Obi-Wan ANH (ewww, fat neck) and Vader ROTJ. We already have Vader ANH, Vader ESB, Luke ESB and Luke ROTJ. It's not like the OT is going to sustain the FX line for much longer....

I agree. It seems redundant to do yet another graflex based saber. Rumor, I emphasize rumor, is a ANH Luke for the anniversary.

I dont really like the new Obi so unless they figure out the neck issue I'd rather not waste time with another. PT really is the way to go.

Yeah, I'm with those that think making the other OT sabers would be a waste. Although, as I mentioned in another thread, I thought a "weathered" obi-wan might be kinda cool. Because it would at least complete a set like the Obi/Ani ROTS sabers. Not sure if creating the Vader ROTJ would be that great.

f they are on the same track they've been on the past 2 years, we might be able to see the ENTIRE set of lightsabers from all 6 movies by 2008. Don't know how much of a reality that is, but seeing how much they've done since 2004... the pathway to everything we all want is probably right around the corner.

I am a huge fan of the FX sabers and if I had to make a list of what I would want to get next:

1 - TPM Qui-Gon Jinn
2 - TPM Obi-Wan
3 - ROTS Dooku - I know it has been discussed already... maybe by 2008 they'll figure out how to make it work???

Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing what MR comes up with in the next couple years.

If I can, they can.

Impressive... most impressive.


That's pretty sweet, Danakin. That must have taken a lot of planning and patience to build that. Nice work. I guess my "dream" of having a Dooku FX really ISN'T that far fetched.

Yes, its true.
When I sat down with Bryan after the first night of SDCC ended, we talked about a lot of things and one of the other MR employess had asked Bryan if he thought about redoing the Anakin AOTC FX. Bryan got a grimace on his face and shook his head emphatically, "No...I really don't want to do that one again. For next year we want to retain a concentration on Original Trilogy items" So as of right now, they have no intention of redoing the AOTC Anakin, which when you think about it would incorporate a complete retooling of how the saber was initially made since the Gen1 Anakin is completely different from all other FX sabers in its construction.

Would I like to see an AOTC Anakin? Heck yes I would, my 2002 Anakin is cool, but its just a display piece as it is so fragile. I would love to see one with more robust construction like the Darth Maul or Obi-Wan.

With the anniversary of star wars next year, it makes sense that they'd want to do OT lightsabers.

I'm not interested in any OT FX lightsabers to be honest.
