I'd be interested in one, AOTC version is fine with me!

To answer a few questions I have been asked.

Yes, I know the AOTC is a cast of the TPM hero.  That is why they are different sizes/scales - No, I will not be changing the size or scale or shape or anything.  Both my TPM and AOTC version will be dimensionally identical.

As I mentioned before, the bezels on the TPM had the shaved LEDs in them where the AOTC had solid bezels - there will be no light up option for the bezels on the AOTC version.

Yes, I am aware that the red button is different between the two sabers.  No, I will not be making a different red button for the AOTC version.  My goal is not a 100% accurate AOTC, just one that has the features.

Yes, I am aware the brass valve is different on the AOTC (no knurling).  I may, or may not offer the plain version on the AOTC version - I will need to look into how hard it might be to make this part and have it still work with the switch setup.

Yes, I am aware there are some differences in the emitter area.  No, I will not be doing an AOTC specific emitter end - however, I may do a hero version AOTC blade plug but I have to look into it.

So, no.  I am not going to offer a 100% accurate AOTC version - I am offering the TPM same as before with some parts that can make it approximate the AOTC version.

Timing - I don't know when I will open a run.  It won't be this year and it most likely won't be until I get some other things wrapped up - Maybe around March-ish.  I solely wanted to gauge interest as I am starting to contemplate my 2015 work load.

More than 15 - I don't know at this point.  I will have to evaluate how large I want to make the run when I announce it.  If there is absolute interest in a larger run, I may open it up a bit more.

Can I buy more than 1?  Well, that will depend on the interest and how many I ultimately offer. 

Can I get it chrome plated?  I already said I would not be offering plating services beyond the black and red anodizing of the parts.  Nor am I offering polishing.

Feel free to keep expressing interest and I will make a decision when the time is right.

Thanks for the info Wat! Good to know. 

Next year will be a huge Star Wars year but I'd still be interested in getting in on a run if you make it happen.

Thank you for the clarification. I am still in for at least one TPM version in March.

I too would be interested in an AOTC version of this saber.  There are some good conversions and versions out there already and I own a couple, but the OM Obi has become the "benchmark" in my opinion of what this saber should be :D

I'd be interested in a TPM if it is indeed happening in March.

Definitely interested in a TPM.  Missed the previous runs and would love to get in on this one.
