So I am thinking of getting the Hasbro FX Anakin lightsaber for my Ep. III Anakin build. Probably from here:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Star-Wars-Anakin-Skywalker-Force-FX-Lightsaber-Hasbro-Signature-Series/274577171592?hash=item3fee132488:g:wrQAAOSwkTFfsaYv

but I'm going to continue to search to see if I can find a cheaper one (any help with that would be much appreciated).

But my question regards converting the Hasbro lightsaber to RL standards. I've heard that all I have to do to make it RL approvable is to apply this TCSS kit to the lightsaber:

https://www.thecustomsabershop.com/MR-or-Hasbro-FX-Anakin-ROTS-conversion-kit-P248.aspx

I would just like to confirm (or be told otherwise) that this would be the only modification I need to do. Is there anything else that I would have to do to convert the Hasbro lightsaber to Rebel Legion standards?

PS: I also plan to use the same lightsaber in a pre-armor vader build for 501st legion

Hasbro Signature Series Lightsabers used to be Master Replicas. They have metal hilts and should be approvable. You need to remove the warning stickers from the hilt.

The conversion kit is for upgrading the lightsaber to run LEDs and to have a removable blade.

Neil is correct.

the anakinIII hasbro force-FX is approvable straight out-of-the-box.

you don't even need a blade at all.

even just a "belt hanger" hilt -- (a broken/gutted force-FX saber with no blade or electronics installed st sll) -- would still be approved.



the standards say: "14. Lightsaber, ROTS Hero lightsaber hilt. Master Replicas, Hasbro or [custom] build lightsaber matching that used in ROTS are accepted.

--> the hasbro saber in your link above would be accepted with no further modifications. you just need to remove the yellow stickers.

cheers.

Is this the same for MR 2005 sabers? Are they also approvable out-of-the-box?
