Saber Modifications & Customs / Re: Roman Props MK1 Build

Thank you both so much.  I am blown away by how helpful everyone on this forum has been.  Your explanations are very clear.  I'm going to go back to the drawing board on this and it looks like I'm going to have to make my own blade.  I was thinking about pulling the pcb from the LGT blade and recessing it but the LGT blade has too thick an inner diameter to work with this hilt as well!  Will report back with how I make out with the new blade.
Yeah you will need a thin wall blade for these type of hilts.

As Scott mentioned bud, blade side pogo disc needs to be recessed inside the blade to the height of the heatsink.
I think wolf69 also sells the part for the blade side.
You'll probably need to make the blade yourself unless there's someone who can supply it ready made.
The unfortunate part of Romans design is that the heatsink holds the emitter on, unlike others where emitter screws directly to the kneck.

See if Solos Hold has any. Korbanth was a reseller for Solos Hold.

Wanted / WTB- Korbanth Ahsoka Tano AHS Saber (Clone Wars Version)

HEy guys,

Title says it all. Looking to purchase a Korbanth AHS Set of sabers. The Clone Wars style- not the Rebels/Mano style.

I know there are other TCW models out there, I just like Korbanth's the best. I would prefer the sabers to be empty, but open to them being installed. Shoot me any offers you might have!

Post some pictures so we can give you educated guidance. That said, I am guessing that you have a pixel adapter in a raised heat sink and a blade with the blade side adapter at the bottom of the blade. You likely have less than a half inch of blade depth. That will work if you hold the saber vertically, but not for swinging around. In this style emitter, you need a very low profile pixel adapter holder (haven’t done your exact hilt but have done a ton of thin necks) that fits at the base of the cup, or even better, in the recessed area at the bottom of your emitter has one. The other alternative is to make your blade so the adapter is recessed in the blade to the depth of the adapter in your hilt. The blade will go around the heat sink/adapter and make contact with the bottom of the emitter while your pogo pins hit the adapter inside the blade. I have a few of these and can make a short video if my attempt at explaining isn’t clear.

Saber Modifications & Customs / Changing blades

Hi all new here, ok I’ve just got my hands on a anakin skywalker 2010 force fx lightsaber, initially I was trying to get hold of a darth Vader lightsaber but the person I won the eBay bid on just refunded my money and said no to my winning bid, anyway I’m waffling on lol is it possible to just swap the blades over and if so where would I be able to get hold of a red blade?

Thanks for your comment.  I had actually worried that I'd made a mistake here when the blade arrived.  The blade looks like it fits but now I am concerned about stability.  Is there some kind of adapter I can get to make this work or should I buy a different blade?

Haven’t used some of these parts, but if you bought a prebuilt blade from lgs, not sure if it will work on your emitter solution. Unless I am missing something, you will need a pixel blade with the adapter recessed to the height of the top of the heat sink/pixel adapter combo. You want the base of the blade to hit the bottom of the emitter cup and go around the heat sink.

My bad if I am not understanding the design.

Hi All,

After some additional research and some help from the sabre folks on reddit I've finalized my parts list and purchased most of the items.  I've noted below in red what I've got and any changes I made.

Chassis - GOTH-3Designs Roman Props MK1-Padawan Var 1 CFX Chassis Purchased
Soundbard - CFX 10 Soundboard Purchased
Heat Sink - Bespin Custom Props Heat Sink for MK1 Neopiel Sabre Purchased - By the way Bombarta was amazing to deal with and this is a great piece
Neopixel Adapter for MK1 Hilt - MK1 (KR Blade) Neopixel Adapter from Wolf69 DIY Solutions Purchased
Neopixel Connector -  Pre-Soldered Pixel PCB Hilt side connector (7 Pin) from TCSS Purchased
Battery:https - Canadian Panasonic Li-Ion 18650 3.7V 3400mAh PCB Protected Rechargeable Battery from TCSS After additional research I decided to get the 15AMP 18650 battery
Tactile Switches -  PCB-Mount, 2-Pin, SPST, 50mA from Pololu Purchased - I got these from digikey instead of pololu because shipping was cheaper but they are essentially the same
High Amp Kill Switch - High Amp Kill Switch from TCSS Purchased
Recharge Port - High Amp 1.3mm Recharge Port from TCSS Purchased
Speaker - 2W 28mm Bass Speaker Purchased
Blade - 1' mid-grade neopixel blade from the Pachstore (36 inch) Purchased - I ended up getting my neopixel blade from LGT instead of the pachstore due to far cheaper shipping EDIT: for anyone reading this for research you will need to build your own thin walled saber blade per discussion below, the LGT blade will not work

In addition to the above I've purchased 24 AWG wire, 28 AWG wire and 30 AWG wire, female machine pin headers, and a holder for the 18650 battery.  I have started building (carefully!) and will update shortly with the first pictures of my progress.
