someone is a copy cat..

More like a rip-off artist. That's awful. It is a straight copy. Savatron is really crossing a line IMPO. He clearly copied Rob's design and did it to make sales

I know, right? i mean, at LEAST credit the original designer...sheesh.

Wow, that ... is just so low.  Especially considering all the hard work and originality Rob put into that design.  Copied right down to the color scheme too.

I know! Isn't it just awful when people do that?

I think things like that just give the community a black eye.

making something similar for yourself i can understand, if you couldnt get in on one of the runs, like darkside engineering recently did with his dark corran horn saber

but seriously??? copying it that closely to sell???????

Thats quite a heavy hit for the community and Rob. People like that should be ashamed of themselves!

In description: hilt is mad for hevy dueling.... So i guess the hilt goes crazy at the chance of a fight?

I would not recommend Savatron to anyone, even if he was the last saber maker in the universe.
His products, customer service, and ethics are just awful.

So,  no one has any strong feelings about this guy, I take it.   ;)

Maybe its more that some of us "have strong feelings about this guy" who we DO respect in this community and hobby, someone who has been community minded and innovated in it hmmm?

Bit of a defensive response.  But I agree, it is crappy to copy someone else's work without attribution.

Just out of curiosity, and to play devil's advocate,  If the guy said "this is my rendition of GCS's version of Corran Horn's saber" would that have been OK? 

Do any of the saber designers get permission or licensing from Lucasarts/Disney/the contracted author/whomever owns the IP and ask permission before creating a saber? 

If the answer to either of these is "no",  I'd argue that the responses are more do to a dislike of the copycat (probably deserved) than anything else.

And the BIN price is not in line with the quality.

Savatron is a member here. Not a very active member, but one nonetheless. Comments are getting a little to close to a Main site 3&5 R&R violation.
Take it to PM or get back on topic.
