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.
