lol think you have miss understood what I meant.
What I meant was it looked less like a graflex than I thought it would, I mean don't get me wrong its a great looking saber I was just disappointed with the gold glass eye and the on and off switch. Other than that I was really happy with it ;D

ah ok, ya they really should have made it look like a graflex more than they did. but of course than they can't say they are diff when they sell the ep4 one this month or so. Just another way for mr to get my money
They'd have to redesign the Qui-Gon lightsaber like they had to redesign Obi-Wan's & Luke's to adapt it for the blade and electronics, probably.
Not meaning to argue with you but I don't see that being a major problem with the Qui-Gon hilt.
Luke and Obi's had that really thin neck that had to be outrageously widened to accept the blade/electronics. The Qui-Gon hilt is pretty much a straight tube. It does have those deep ridges in the grip section that would have to be filled in (much like the Hasbro toy version, or the "grenade" section of the Obi hilt) however I can't see that detracting from the overall appearance, nor do I see it as an obstacle for MR.
I think they are just taking the easy route for now. I think they are also running out of sabers to produce.

Seriously, if you DON'T want a plush ysalamiri puppet, you're insane!
But in all seriousness, or as serious as a guy talking about a plush puppet can be, EU props may not have as wide an audience, but there's a lot of good ones, like A'Sharad Hett's saber, the Dark Woman's saber, or Kyle Katarn's Bryar Pistol. For that matter, any of Kyle Katarn's guns or grenades, etc. Or a Kyle lightsaber... ... ...
