    Question about the Steve interview and the Obi ROTS Fx, a Amy, Steve, any info on ..

    [font=Times New Roman] Now the recent interview (Steve part 3) has me worried about the Obi-Wan ROTS FX, because he spoke about has he did not like changing the neck of a saber to fit electronics, now first of all Iíve been making EL and Lexon LED sabers with skinny necks for quite some time, but IDK MR uses the 64 LED design so who knows. So anyway that was the reason he stated why MR would not do an Obi-Wan ANH FX, because the neck is too skinny. Question arenít the necks on both hilts the same, so what would be the difference, am I the only one thinking the Obi-Wan ROTS could be canceled? Or was the interview before the Obi-Wan ROTS was announced to retailers, if so could it be that MR has found a way to keep the necks as skinny as they want too, hence the Obi-Wan ROTS, and maybe ANH saber? If Steve or Amy could comment on the issue that would be greatÖ[/font]

    As far I know, there were never any plans for an Obi F/X saber from ROTS, just the LE. So it is possible that you might be confusing the two. As far as the neck problem with F/X sabers, I understand the pt. As an example, the Vader ANH F/X's blade is really sturdy and anchored, while the Mace Windu one is a great deal more unsupported or fragile because of the neck of the hilt.

    There are current plans for an Obi-Wan Fx least, that is what the retailers have been told and they are not lied to, so it is on the way hopefully, you can check this website that is even taking preorders http://www.koenigscollectibles.com/mr.htm I talked to amy and said it should be coming out in Fall, but Idk if that still stands after hearing that Steve interview.

    There is going to be a ROTS FX Obi-Wan. It was announced fairly recently. My guess is that the interview was done before they finalized plans for the ROTS Obi-Wan.

    I am also guessing they will have to cheat the neck size again for this saber like they did for the Luke ROTJ. The problem is, as stated by Darth Spectre, the neck must support the blade well and protect the electronics within. It will, however, probably be a little bit thinner than the Luke ROTJ, but it will probably still be way more oversized than the real thing.

    Idk about maybe they just started to use a small driver that lets the neck be some what smaller, I hope steve or amy can comment on this issue.

    I stand corrected, sorry about that. I'm personally glad there will finally be an Obi-Wan F/X saber. Hopefully, they will continue to advance the technology more and more too.

    As I said, it will probably be a little smaller than the Luke ROTJ, but I believe Steve said in the interview that "you can't get a half inch blade into a quarter inch hole" or something like that, I'm just paraphrasing. There are limitations to the system that can't solely be attributed to the electronics themselves, but to the fact that they need to make these structurally sound as well. An EL blade would work better for the Obi-Wan, but it wouldn't give the saber the same effect as the LED string does. Anyway, there are a half dozen places on the internet where you can get EL bladed sabers. MR needs to set themselves apart from them as they have the capital and infrastructure to produce a product with something a little more "fancy".

    Well they could use a Luxon LED, you cann find a pic here of a non edited pic, I think that would work well and the driver lets it light up in parts and lets a clashing light or on and off.
