MKIII-re, a New Product line offering by LDM

MKIII-re, an Obi-ROTS style Lighted Saber Line by LDM

With the release of the "Accurately weathered" ANH Obi Line, the Parks MKIII ROTS sabers coming out of my shop are no more.  All ANH MKIII's will look like that from now on (unless someone wants a "clean ANH").  I have indeed Diversified the MKIII Product line, but am also streamlining it at the same time.  The ROTS's are now a completely different design.  The POC/initial hilts are from a couple of different machinists and look virtually identical, so no matter who ends up doing the empties for me these will look like what is posted here.  These are about as accurate with respect to the ROTS and the original MKIII is to the ANH.  Not an exact replica (although very accurate), but more of an Obi-ROTS-ish product.  Pricing structure has already been set and will be posted shortly.  These will be ordered through my site (just like Malakytes, 51TH Commandos and Revans) starting very soon.  Turn around time from the day a final confirmed order is placed will run about 4-6 weeks.  The hilts themselves are quite versatile and sport a 1" blade (although BH depth is only ~1" so I still wouldn't gorilla-duel with them) and can contain virtually any electronics package that I offer.  Enjoy.

A Comparison:

As always, a great looking saber, General! I confess, the Obiwan OT is my favorite of all the movie sabers, especially in it's weathered version. Will definitely be talking to you about one of these once I get started with teaching for the fall semester. A really great translation of the film saber.

Oh yeah, really diggin that ROTS version. Very much my favorite Jedi saber design... but what's up with the extension on the bottom of the pommel? Is it there to ensure proper fitting of the internal electronics, or something the manufacturer overlooked/design flaw? Maybe it's just me, but I thought the ROTS pommel was shorter. Nonetheless, I might still yet replace my ROTS'ed Dark Avenger with this, soon... if the price is right ;D.

The pommel is one of the "concessions" that keep this particular saber from infringing on anyone's IP ;)  Of course, it also does create an extra cm of space for electronics which often does indeed matter.  If you ever decide you want one, hit me up and I could possilby mod the pommel to shorten the endcap for you.

THe pricing for these is up on my site here:  LDM Custom Sabers - MKIII-re Sabers for Sale
