Yeah, this hilt feels like it fits into the OT more than most of the PT sabers! super nice work.

Hi, well, I am a bit frustrated , all the parts are here to finish before anodising it's just getting a full week to do them.
Our Factory build has snatched my time away from this.
My apologies to all, will pull all my fingers out of everything on these very soon.

From the JQS website - an update on 4th Jan.

Plo Koon – we would like to apologise to all our clients who have Plo Koon ordered. The run has been delayed by various issues but we are looking to get them ready for sale, kits first, by the Spring.

I'm happy to wait as long as it takes to get them right  :smiley:

Hi @JQsabers - What's the order/availability status of this run? I'd love one of either of these! It's a great design!...

...While I have your ear, what's the chance of getting the gorgeous golden pommel with the blue emitter?... ;)

I recently received a Luminara from JQSabers and was not at all disappointed!  Definitely a fan of Daren's work!  I asked for some slight weathering and it turned out awesome.  Great finish and wonderful rumble motor, loud bass speaker, with custom blade plug.  Fully loaded CF8.  A beautiful piece for sure!!!

I'll post some pics soon.

Looking forward to pics  :smiley:. Hopefully that means the original Plo Koon run is still on (I haven't heard any updates since those on this thread), or maybe your Lumi was based on a different build?

The first few pics are from JQ Sabers prior to weathering:








Here are a few pics I took:

That looks absolutely awesome - congratulations on that score :)

Out of curiosity where is recharge port / kill key?

The end cap/pommel unscrews and the recharge port is set under there.  So it doesn't have an ugly recharge port staring you in the face when the kill key is removed.  Definitely good planning.
