Chewy, now all you need to do is make MORE! Great job!!!

**Cough cough** do a run **cough cough** ;)

I would just be happy with a run of those emitters+skinny necks+MHS compatability, though its nice to know that one can with a little work make one of these bad-boys.

I can't do that for sure but maybe in the future I can do a small run of the complete saber if enough people were interested.

Well, I'm happy to say I'm the lucky guy getting that saber, and it's been a real pleasure to work with Chewbacca on this.  This'll be my first custom saber and from what I've seen thus far, I could not be happier.  BTW, I can't take credit for the copper colored bubble strip idea- that was actually my wife's idea!  Very glad she's supportive of this : )

Congrats! Share a pic of you playing with it after you get it.

This is definitely my new favorite Obi Wan OT saber  :o I'd be interested in a future run if lower level soundboard options were offered. :)

Well after being asked be a few people I am entertaining the thought of a run.


I still have to double check my totals but it looks like I would offer them for about $550 for a CSV2 version.  Keep in mind I have to machine the grenade section and neck (copper and brass) from scratch so there is a lot of the price (labor plus materials).  Members can choose between the 8 groove or 6 groove version.  If you wanted a PC or CF I could work out that price individually.

So if you are serious (as in you will put a deposit of half and not back out if I do decide to do it) post here and I will see if there is enough interest to proceed.  I would not start on them until September probably (that gives me July and August to clear out my installs).

Before you post keep in mind it will have a 7/8ths blade and no option to make it bigger.

Would you be offering them empty as well?

Awesome news! Would the $550 estimate be for the crystal reveal version or the non-reveal? If not, will there be an upgrade option for the reveal?

No I am not offering empties.

no that is not for a crystal reveal.  A crystal reveal is not really part of my thought process on this but if someone wanted one I would consider it on a case by case basis.  You can PM me and I will see if I can get a price upgrade for that.

Well this is for interest in this particular saber which is just a cool little saber and not intended to be accurate.  If you are not interested and want a more accurate saber that is fine but this is not the saber for that.  I did mention I would offer it with 6 or 8 grooves depending on what the person wants though. 

I have a more accurate one I am working on that I posted in that thread I would sell.

The mostly scratch built ROTS I am working on Obi ROTS WIP...crystal chamber added on page 3

When I finish it I will either sell it outright (if someone offers me what I want) or it will be auctioned off.
