Been wanting to do an Episode 2 Anakin for a while now and finally got a chance to put it all together, make some tweaks and do a fitting. I'm a little unsure of the placement for the belt pouches, can anyone confirm I guessed right or let me know where they go. ?
Also, any input will be helpful before I submit. (especially LCJ's) I still need a lightsaber and I hope to have a cloak in a week or so.

Thanks!

You might want to slide the wide pouch more onto the back of the belt, and move the ponytail behind your ear.

The lightsaber for this version is tricky. No one really makes an accurate hilt, unless you get one custom made. Currently, I'm using the pricey MR hilt, which is super HEAVY for its size. Sometimes, it makes my belt tilt to one side! Embarassed I asked efx at WonderCon if they would make a resin one of this, much like their ROTS Anakin, Obi-Wan, and ROTJ Luke ones.

With the addition of some rubber grips and black paint, this could be made into an anakin II saber

Yeah, I've actually been looking for a hilt longer than any of the other parts. If anyone spots one for sale keep me in mind. Mr. Green

Brianstoys has a used anakin II FX lightsaber for $9.99 on ebay. no reserve. no bids yet.
The sound doesn't work, but that's not unexpected. That's very common for this model.
good luck.

The fx saber was just too big. Its supposed to be much smaller.

I thought I read somewhere that all force-FX master replica sabers were accepted?
I know that some are more accurate than others.

ObiwanIII for example, or LukeIV, these 2 don't have the correct shape at all. They don't look like replicas.
I would think that these 2 in particular would not be acceptable, and yet, it seems that they are?

Is there a list of which force-FX are acceptable and which are not?
thanks.


p.s. It's still @$9.99 and there's still no bids.

I would take out the blade and hang it on my belt, if this were an acceptable hilt.

An MR FX saber has been tempting just because a broken one can be found for low cost. However the size is not very accurate and I'm hoping to run across the LE version or a fan made one.

I believe I've seen resin kits on eBay.
