  no, it can be done. The MSiA Tallgeese action figure has removeable beam
saber blades, so it can store the saber hilts in it's shield. MSiA's are
smaller then 1/144 kits. Yes, I know how the MG kit's hilts are made. The
MSiA Tallgeese's blades have a peg that snaps into the saber hilts. So since
it's done on an MSiA, it can be done in 1/144, no doubt about it.
