Mine is in pieces still. Haven’t quite worked out the joining solution yet.

I wouldn’t be opposed to the extension.

Who is still in for Nov vs the extension? I suppose that is where we need to look. If we only have like 3 for Nov then that isn’t much of a show off.

Spot on Iggy. I say let those who are ready vote to hold the deadline or extend.  I think we had 6 last year and I wished we had more.

The only reason I suggested an extension is that it sounds like only one or two people are actually going to be ready.  That's really not much of a contest.

Ok.  Scott and jbkuma have both pointed out the obvious. We want as many participants as possible. As everyone else seems to be WIP, an extension  will hopefully give people a chance to get things done and make this a contest.
If someone misses the deadline, they might just abandon the project and I’d much rather see the final execution of concepts and ideas.
If that requires more time, so be it …. Jedi.

Hey everyone,

Unfortunately, if we don't change the deadline, I don't think I can finish my entry  :cry:

As some of you may know, I've got a comic book due out but I'm still working on the artwork for it. It's a few months late, and it has run into my saber time. I've got my Golden Entry about half done, but the past few months I've been drawing and coloring furiously... and ran out of time not only on my comic book deadline, but saber deadlines as well. I'm so sorry to bring this news so late.

Hopefully, if the contest continues with the current deadline that there will be some entries. If we push it off a bit, I should have my comic printed and shipped out to customers by the first half of December and I'd be much more free to advertise for the contest and also to do my entry. No hard feelings on my end if the deadline remains the same. I'm fine with that, as that is the correct way after all  :cheesy:

But I'll tell ya I think you'll like my entry if/when it is finished! It's pretty sweet lol  :evil:

I'm actually also totally cool with pushing back on the timeframe.

I'm not even 100% sure my entry will count and I'd like to see more folks involved too. If I were to win I'd hate to win against (1) other person or take the bragging rights against,,, "MYSELF" 😂🤣😅

And why wouldn’t it count?

well, I actually posted earlier that the field stripping into parts and what not. I had that in mind when I made the saber but it's more for my own personal collection more so than the contest so I made a few changes but,,, I've got an easy idea that will bring it back into play and was told to enter it anyway. But I'm also working on another saber at the moment as well so I thought it'd be cool to have an extra entry. Plus I'd like to see a bunch more people. With their stuff too.

As far as my original entry. I had made an emitter extension piece and can easily add that on without compromising my final design I had decided on. So yeah... I'M IN

Almost done with mine. Working out a few final parts now. I got to hear the saber kick on after wiring everything. Always nice to hear a saber purr.

This thread is getting eerily quiet.  :shocked:



@FJK do you have where we send the deets?
Amount of pics, videos, etc?
I don't see the first post updated with all that info.

No decision has been made one way or another.  Just folks tossing out opinions.

I finished one and am ready but honestly it will be boring if it is just me and one other person submitting.

If we extend I’ll be able to finish my other idea. So I would be happy to have the deadline extended. I am waiting on a soundboard and need to order another few pieces from TCSS to make that one work.

So I guess it’s just up to the other person who is done to confirm of challenge the deadline?

As far as this I believe the only other one ready was Darth Brooks and he already noted he is okay with a pushback on the deadline too.

I'm actually also totally cool with pushing back on the timeframe.
