    Antique shops or internet. Some flash camera enthusists don't like us Star Warriors snatching up these items, but hey they're the ones selling them.

    So let me get this straight: flashbulb camera enthusiasts hate Star Wars fans. [face_plain] That's . . . odd.

    LOL I know right!!!
    I actually seen with my own two eyes....well read rather LOL....some one posted on a graflex website " hi I was hoping to get some info on where to pick up a 3 cell flash for my Dads old graflex camera, every where ive looked there so expensive. I want to rebuild his old camera for him for fathers day. Thank you". Then he got several responses, all negative, one read as follows..." We know this scam and were real tired of it. Were sick of you sci fi fans collecting our vintage equipment just to tear it up and make a replica of this sword. We would appriciate it if you would all just go back into your parents basements and watch your stupid movies some more."
    Dude for reals, thats what they said!!! others posted how they hate george lucas for what hes done to their market, these used to be 10 dollar pieces and if youre lucky enough to find one you end up paying between 100 to 1000 dollars [face_laugh] thats just crazy!!!!
    and these guys are more fanatical than us...Im waiting for the angry mob to come to my door with torches and pitch forks lol

    Yep. Shop around local antique stores and try to find them. They are highly collectible and made into the hilts for the lightsabers especially Luke's ANH. Even Luke's Saber Hilt in the Holiday Special is a different kind of Graflex Flash Handle. I have a few Handles (not for sale, sorry) that I'll bring to next meeting. Whenever that will be.
