One Replicas Obi-Wan Arena hilt w/ CF 5.10, SMD bargraph, and more

Hey Saberfans!

Calvary Custom Sabers would like to show you a fun little conversion I just finished. I needed something different after the wear and tear of past Parks/Korbanth conversions, so I pulled this saber out of my drawer over the weekend and set to work getting it lit up with some Crystal Focus goodness.
   This hilt is a One Replicas Obi-Wan Arena hilt, you know, the one Obi gets tossed in Geonosis? It is a very well made hilt, and is extremely solid. The colors on the hilt are anodized, and compliment each other quite well. This saber is loaded with features. The CF is running a tri-rebel, there is one of my own bargraphs set up inside the hilt, and the red knobs act as functional switches, to add to the authenticity of the feel of the hilt.

I am very happy with how this turned out, and now understand why these are such desirable hilts. They rock.

Here are some Official Specs
- Crystal Focusâ„¢ 5.10 w/ default fonts
- Tri-Rebel BBW. The blues are wired in series, and the White serves as the FOC.
- Custom 7 Segment LED Bargraph made by myself
- Twist Switch for main activation
- Flush 2.1mm Recharge port
- 2W MegaBass Speaker

And some pics for you all:












Thanks for looking!  8)

Looks great  :)

Haha... Well, it's a fool's errand, boy. The Emperor's army is infinite. You'll eventually be killed... or worse... and nothing will have changed.

ill be honest, i never really cared for the Obi-Arena hilt. it just never did anything for me. but for some reason, seeing yours, with the bar graph and the CF. i like it. i think its pretty nice.

good job man, you turned a non-believer into a person who wouldn't mind owning this.

now that is a testament in itself as far as building sabers go. congrats bud.

Thanks folks.  :D

I am glad you all approve of the bargraph, as I was hesitant to do so at first, because it would change it from being screen accurate to more of a modded saber look. But upon further thought, figured it added just the extra flair needed to "make it my own".  8)

Thought that was a mod lol, kept looking at pictures of the arena hit lol. I like it tho, gives it character for sure.
Sweet job
Best,
