Other Collectibles / Hasbro Force FX Lightsabers

So from the main page, Hasbro will be taking over this line in 2008... Do we need to rename this thread or should we start a new one?  Doesn't look like we will be getting anything 'new' in 2008 though.  According to the press release, they will be releasing a Vader, Obi-Wan, Yoda, Luke, and Darth Maul.  I was really hoping to get the TPM Obi-Wan FX from Master Replicas, but now I can only hope Hasbro puts it out at some point.

Just wanted to say Happy New Year to everyone here at JD.  Hope everyone had a great time last night and made it home safe.

Since my wife and I haven't gone out since our sons were born, I'm interested to hear what everyone did last night.  We had a quiet night at home and were asleep by 10:30.  I know, boring, but when the boys are up at 6:00 or earlier, it makes staying up and drinking until past midnight less appealing.

This is the last McQuarrie figure that I need.  Please help me out.  Would rather buy from another forum member than go on ebay!  Thanks.

Had a great trade with Michael for two UGH figures.  Great communication, really well packaged, and he shipped it out fast.  Thanks.

I thought that there was already a thread for these, but I couldn't find it.  Sorry if this is a re-post.

Having missed out on the first round of these which included Darth Vader, R2-D2, Chewbacca, and Stormtrooper, I was pleasantly surprised to see the second round of these in the latest Insider (#97).  The next offerings will include:

Boba Fett
ANH Luke Skywalker
ANH Princess Leia (holding a blaster)
ANH Han Solo

I think that I'm going to have to have to get one of the Boba Fetts once they come out.  Anyone else have any of the first wave?

Watto's Junk Yard / What HDTV to buy - LCD, Plasma, DLP
« on: May 9, 2007, 05:02 PM »
I'm looking at buying an HDTV and have done all the research on LCD vs. Plasma vs. DLP, but was wondering what everyone's experience has been with these.  I'm leaning toward plasma for my Family Room, mostly because of size, and LCD if we upgrade the one in our bedroom, but I'm sure I could be convinced to go with LCD for both.

What does eveyone else have and would you buy the same thing if you had it to do all over again?

I've been toying around with the idea of making a full hilt single bladed Darth Maul Force FX lightsaber for some time now.  Recently I scored one that I planned on taking apart.  So I started last night.  Here are the very early WIP pictures and a how-to in case anyone else is interested in doing the same thing.

First lower the o-ring between the two sections of the hilt:

Tap out the retention pin with a nail or screw:

Pull the retention pin out:

Heat the hilt with a blow dryer prior to unscrewing.  The threads have a glue on them that hold them in place REALLY well.  If possible, have a second person help you unscrew the two pieces:

Undo the clip holding the blade to the rest of the electronics in the hilt.  Push the blade out through the top hilt piece:

Remove the On/Off cover and unscrew the switch:

Before removing the electronics from the hilt, you will also have to unscrew the silver knob under the On/Off switch as well as the belt clip from the back of the hilt.  Push the electronics through the hilt:

Replace the silver knob and the belt clip, and screw the top piece of the hilt back into the main part of the hilt:

Replace the o-ring and put back the retaining pin:

Super glue the On/Off cover back on and then super glue the switch onto the hilt:

Lastly, put your new hilt on your 'battle damaged' FX Lightsaber, and you now have a single-bladed full hilt version:

Other Collectibles / Merry Christmas to Me
« on: December 11, 2006, 10:38 PM »
Sorry for the length everyone, but I still can't believe my luck.

I've been looking to get a Darth Maul FX Lightsaber to take apart and use the hilt to make a full hilt version of my Battle Damaged saber.  Late last week, I ended up contacting an ebay member that sells a lot of 'customer returns' to find out if they had any that were not functioning since I really only needed them for the hilts.  They responded to me that they indeed had 2 that they were looking to get rid of.  One of them did not have a battery pack and the other had a battery pack that 'could not be removed' they told me.  They also didn't have the caps on the end that hold the battery packs in, so they said that they would throw in two of the connection pieces that create the double bladed versions.  I ended up negotiating a price of $15 each + $15 shipping.

I received these today.  They are in excellent condition.  Both hilts have scratches you wouldn't notice unless you were really looking hard, and the blades show no signs of damage at all.  So on a hunch, I took the battery pack from one of my BD DM sabers, threw some batteries in it, and put it in the one saber that didn't come with a batter pack.  I flipped the switch and it fired up immediately! The blade is in perfect shape (no dead spots).  I have since gotten a hold of Master Replicas and they are sending me a replacement battery pack...  So basically I obtained one Battle Damaged Darth Maul FX saber for $15 ;D!

I then grabbed the one with the battery pack stuck in it.  Using some needle nose pliers, I pulled the battery pack out with relative ease.  The reason it was stuck was because the previous owner wrapped a rubber band around it for some reason and then put it in the hilt.  I'm going to assume that they lost the end cap and the rubber band was holding the battery pack in place.  Regardless, I put in some fresh batteries, popped the battery pack back in the hilt, and presto, it fired up immediately!  Again, the blade is in near perfect shape (I found one small ring near the very top of the blade that looks dead), and the sound and effects work perfectly with that battery pack.  So that's a second BD DM saber for $15 ;D!

But now here's the dilemma.  I still want to create a single blade, full hilt version of this saber.  But now I have two perfectly working double bladed DM FX lightsabers.  I'm going to have to consciously destroy one of them to make my little experiment work.  I didn't care when I thought that two of the sabers didn't work, but now I'm going to bust apart one of them, and it's something that would have normally run me $70-$120.

Also, there's the question of whether or not I say anything to the seller.  They sold them to me for $15 each thinking that they didn't work.  Now I've found out that they work just fine.  They could have turned these around for a nice little profit, but instead do I treat this as 'their loss is my gain'?!  I know that Christmas is a time for giving, but I don't think that they would have given me a $200 item for $30 had they really known it worked...  Am I just thinking too much into this, or should I even consider returning them?

Thoughts?  What would y'all do?
