I received my Prophecy Collector's Edition in the mail a while ago and have finally gotten some time to write a review.
First off, I selected the quick-ship saber option. The saber shipped within 48 hours of purchasing it online, and took 6 days to be delivered to my house via standard USPS.
Very speedy, Ultra!
Out of the box, as I have heard from others, this saber had batteries installed despite not selecting the "$1.00 battery install" option. The batteries that were in it were drained a bit or just not as powerful as the new ones I installed. Because despite the brightness of the saber with their batteries, it definitely was brighter with mine installed. I have no problem with Ultra Sabers quality testing the product before it ships out. I would hate to have one of the dreaded DOA sabers I hear about but have never encountered. There were no scratches in the nickel or blade (before I got a go at it
), nor were there any chips in the switch.
Now, on to the visuals:
I chose the Prophecy CE with a Counselor Green Luxeon and a Ultra-edge Heavy Blade.
I disassembled the saber: To take out the blade you need 2 wrenches (because of the 2 different sized retention screws).
A closer view: You can see the cover-tech knob also taken off. It is in the middle of the hilt, so, if you are thinking of doing anything other than displaying this saber I would recommend swapping out the CT knob with a retention screw to fill the hole. --Its easier on the hands--

Here is a comparison in size between the Ultra-sabers Prophecy CE and the Force-FX Anakin RotS Saber (I am in the process of an LED string upgrade so I had the Anakin Hilt lying around): The Prophecy CE is
smaller. --The prochecy is more comfortable to hold too--
All-in-all, this is a great saber. I will most likely add sound and change the guarded, blue standard switch to an Anti-vandal switch.
Great Job Ultra for another fine saber!
