Thank you everyone! I really appreciate it!

Shipping out Monday, maybe Fog will do a video or something, as I didn't have time to.

Absolutely fantastic saber! Gotta love the screen accurate thin choke(neck) on these. I bought an LDM Obi(weathered) from a nice guy in FL recently and he is shipping it today. I'm totally psyched about it. Enjoy that saber! It's awesome!  ;D

Fantastic job Slothfurnace. Do you think you will ever do an obi ROTS lightsaber?

No, I can't say I will ever do one of those.  I much prefer the MR As First Built By style.

The ROTS Obi and Anakin should have been pristine versions of the ANH sabers, not new lucasfilm copywritable designs that have no visual place in the pedigree of the ANH sabers.

Meaning, there's no mechanical way the ROTS Obi would have evolved to the ANH obi.  The shapes are just too different.  Same with the ANH Luke vs the ROTS Anakin.  I just don't think it's believable that they're the same sabers, and as such, I choose not to touch them.  Call me picky, but it's one of the more frustrating things about the prequel trilogy.

We've never talked about that but I feel exactly the same way. They're abominations that make me want to uppercut whoever made the decisions to OK those props, and a swift sack kick for the prop maker for even proposing them.

From what I've been told, they were redesigned so that they could copywrite the design.  Because they couldn't copywrite the individual pieces they were made from in the original trilogy.

Makes enough sense to me, but still unfortunate.

I guess that DOES make some sense... but there was probably a way to get them much closer with miniscule changes and still keep it 98-99% accurate. Oh well... I'm with you, I don't like them, but to each his own. ^_^

Oh yeah, Lee, make sure you save the box in case you ever need to ship it back for any work needed.

I provide a limited lifetime warranty.  If I die, your warranty expires.
