Anakin AOTC UltraFx Saber
« on: May 31, 2009, 11:16:56 AM »
I have always been a fan of the Anakin ATOC saber, but unfortunately, MR never did release a more accurate sized FX-LED version of the saber. JQSabers does plan to release one in the future, but as great as I am sure it will be when it is released, its cost is simply out of my price range. Anyway, after much research here on the forum and communications with both Jango and Ultra, I received my newest UltraFx saber yesterday. IMO, it looks fantastic and I just want to share it with my fellow members here.

Saber Biography : It started life as a Vader ANH saber and went through an Ultra Sabers transformation in the legendary Ultra Sabers fashion with the typical Ultra Sabers craftmanship. The saber has the Ultra Saber-Anakin emitter/shroud, P4 Blue with 10 degree optic, UltraEdge with TCSS pointed tip and most importantly, the correct Jedi sound from a standard FX-Jedi sound board.





No thanks to my occupational OCD and ideally speaking  :P, I still need to do the following: 1) Activator box needs to be relocated/realigned to the more "correct" position. 2) Add a covertec knob. 3) Find a new pin/screw setup for the activator box to eliminate the "clamp" look.

A special and most sincere "Thank You" goes out to both Ultra and Jango Fett for this saber

Outstanding Tifosi~ thanks so much for sharing this beauty with the forum, I really appreciate it!

I'm a huge fan of this saber as well (really gave a nice nod to the impending Vader in young Anakin)...and the pointed blade tip makes it just that much more threatening...great choice of saber and sabersmiths!

Thank you, I appreciate the compliments.

Jango is indeed a formidible sabersmith as he has helped me with several saber conversions in the past. But as far as this saber goes, it is all Ultra with Jango acting as a consultant and an advisor. I sincerely hope that the members here appreciates the fact that we have so many capable people that are willing to help us with this hobby. For me, this hobby has been made possible only because of great people like Ultra, Jango, Dr. LDM and great vendors like Ultra Sabers and TCSS.

Photos updated.

Alex/Ultra Sabers has been been kind enough to help with the re-alignment of the activator box. I am extremly happy with the saber and needless to say, very proud to have it as part of my collection.

Thank you all for your compliments and your kind words.

I've always loved the Anakin AOTC and what a cool way to get an Anakin AOTC!  Great saber and thumbs up on the pointed tip, very nifty.

Yeah, this is truly the way to have as accurate as possible version of this saber. It makes me want to have one now...and I am not the biggest fan of this saber in general. Congrats, man.
