Show off your lightsaber

by Pete T » Thu May 05, 2016 5:53 pm

Hi Folks,

Thought I'd start a new thread as I've just got a new lightsaber that I'm pleased with and I'm interested in what other people have.

My new one is shown below. The hilt is about 11 inches long and the overall length is around 40 inches. The hilt is aluminium and the blade has LEDs along the full length which makes it quite even and bright. The black highlights on the hilt have been created by black shiny rubber bands slotted into the grooves. The hilt is also available in black. Whilst the blade can be removed, the seller did not recommend this as the connector may slip. however, it's sound enough when assembled and will take some contact. The seller is a guy from Edinburgh who I met at Newcastle Comicon in March and I think he imports these from China and it cost £45

It has no sound but he tells me that he will be importing more upgraded ones from around September which will have sound and different hilts. He said these would cost around £70. The bad bits are that it feels a little heavy, there is no possibility of fitting a covertech wheel and the on off button is very sensitive. This means that you can occasionally turn it off by accident if swinging it around. I also think the design is not as good as some from Saberforge or Ultrasabers. On the other hand, this cost a similar price to the postage and import duty from these two companies!

I would have liked a saberforge lightsaber, especially the ones with windows, as I think they have a very cool look and are a bit more imaginative than some of the ultrasaber ones. However, for the price I am very happy with it and plan to get one of his upgraded ones with sound when he stocks them. I also might try customising this with a leather grip or similar.

I've shown you mine now show me yours. Go on you know you want to......

Just had delivered today my Caliburn evolution from JQ Sabers. Been pleased with the customer service and all the advice given. The price suited my budget and I think its great value for money.

Nice saber. I've read a lot about JQ sabers and the photos on their site look great.

Love my Saberforge Reliant. 12w polycarbonate blade, took three chunks out of my wall and a vinyl display frame. Not a single crack in it. Saber handle is a little heavy, good for practice with, perfected my obi ani flourish now but there's always more to learn.ImageImageImage

Here goes... Saberforge Dissident - Purple LED but with a Vader's Vault Photon blade turning the purple into green:

And my 'throwdown' saber which I hand out for photos, an Ultrasabers grab bag affair which I heavily weathered/battle damaged to reflect the backstory that it's my masters old saber and it was reclaimed from the site of his rather catastrophic murder...

My ideal saber would be from Vaders Vault, however I'd need to sell my firstborn son in order in order to afford it just now, which in itself would be complicated as I'd have to create a firstborn son...

Great to see everyone else's sabres my mouth is drooling lol

These are my 2 non-character SaberForge sabres which I bought for display (even though I got them with sound and flicker etc) lol

I do want to get my hands on some replica OT Sabres at some point but will definitely have to wait until this current build is finished at least :)

My Skywalker heirloom.

I'm new to the costume scene but a big nerd for lightsabers. This is a vintage graflex put together by Fx-sabers, had this thing for 10 years now. Features a 5 watt blue LED and a prototype Ultrasabers soundboard. Also an early stage version of the crystal reveal which I think I might have to give an upgrade at some point.

My own take on the classic Rahm Kota saber design with a black leather wrap, a Nano Biscotte V3 soundboard and a Tri Cree G/G/W.

Commissioned and custom built by Tom Stephens @ TS. Creations.
