Thank you for the update Luminara. If we want to get special acid weathering to make the saber look more aged, worn, is that an option we can discuss?

Thank you.

This really is amazing news!  Luminara was hoping to talk through my two TFUII builds since it's been awhile and the front page does not show any specifics for my 2 sabers on order.  Very excited for this...!  Thank you!

Darth Hulk we are probably just going to send out final invoices upon completion.  I will post here when that happens just in case people do not check their PM boxes. 

To update again, still no greeblies but they are with the manufacturer. I do anticipate at this point it will be close to the holiday or shortly after that we receive those.  Once I have them in hand we will immediately move forward getting these finished up.  I will post here when they arrive.

Dragonfly, I believe we have spoken about your selections.  However, send a PM here with your selections again and I will update the front page.

Sithslayer, we can discuss special weathering, but even our regular weathering is an acid based treatment.

We have built out the first one to check fitment, identified process issues and are working on corrections as we work on the next one.  Due to the nature of this run and the fact that technology has changed SIGNIFICANTLY since the run started, there are minor adustments and process changes that need to occur to finish everything efficiently and with the quality and professionalism we are known for.  Keep in mind the entire chassis has been redone several times and some of the original engineering did not anticipate the form factors and wiring requirements for today's tech.

Once we finish out the cosmetics on that first one, we will post pics but with MegaCon next week, it will probably not be until the end of the month.

These are VERY time consuming so these are not going to be an overnight thing.  I anticipate the first couple will be ready to ship in the next 6-8 weeks or so and then slowly roll out throughout the remainder of this year/early next.  I will be in touch with folks as their sabers get close to completion.

I will reiterate the offer that we have mentioned dozens of times, anyone who is tired of waiting, please contact me either here or at the shop at 470-839-2551 or by Facebook Messenger - Deanna Johnson, and I am happy to send it along no questions asked.

I do appreciate everyone's patience for all these long years.  This run has been way too long and I cannot apologize enough.  I am surprised and honored that everyone chose to hang on and we will do our very best to not let you down and provide a stunning end product worthy of any high end collection!

May the Force Be With You All!

Thank you for the update Deanna!

I can't wait to see this come to fruition! I'm sure it will be epic and I look forward to hearing from you as it gets closer.

Best to you, Alan and the VV team.

Agreed on a teaser pic when you can guys! Especially in a med-heavy weathered version, if you please.
