A new review, and a long over due one....
« on: November 20, 2009, 01:51:25 PM »
Hey guys and gals,
I am just adding my reviews to 2 sabers that the guys from Gemini Concepts have done for me.  Over the summer, they completed Solace for me, which I'm sure most of you have had the chance to view.  Its in my sig, and just in case you never got a chance,  here's the build link....
http://www.fx-sabers.com/forum/index.php?topic=18733.0

The main reason, besides to tell you how much I love it, is to share a vid that I finally made.  This is my display non dueling "unicorn" saber.   ;D

Next up....  Another MHS based saber named Aura.  I once again turned to the GC guys for a upgrade.   The pc'd my hilt and installed a Jedi soundboard.  I guess I'm starting to get spoiled...  I just have to have sound in a saber now, if its possible.    ::)  The upgrade makes this saber leaps and bounds cooler!  The pc makes the saber look functional, yet classy.  Heres the saber mod link....   http://www.fx-sabers.com/forum/index.php?topic=21315.0

And the vid...   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ksbqQbxEmm4

I once again thank the guys at GC for their top notch work, and great customer service.

Thanks for all your business, Jin-Ke! 

Nice reviews!  Between your Solace and the Dark Sohryu... those are the two most requested designs we get from Youtube (apparently after people see the video).  We don't duplicate sabers so the answer is always "no" but you should be flattered that people want your saber.   ;)

Glad to see those sabers! MJ and Chewie seem to just keep getting better and better at their craft. I for one a very happy with my CS-12 New and Retooled.

But Jin-Ke, pray tell...why are you letting that gorgeous Solace sit for display? Use that bad boy!  ;D

Those are 2 most impressive sabers, MJ and Chewie have done a fantastic job as always and I must say if I could afford a custom saber and the extra shipping to the UK, I would ask them to build my design

Its sits on display cause I don't want to mess it up.... :o :o :o   LOL......     I will use this saber for costumed appearance or solo forms.  I just don't want to duel with it, and have anything go wrong.

Well that Unicorn saber of yours is drop death georgious.
I'm not sure yet but I may like this one more than the Obi TPM or the Qui saber.
It's slightly differend han the first, but it's just more finished this way.
Do you have more photo's of this Unicorn for me to enlarge?.

Great reviews and great sabers. I also like the Solace. ;)
It looks very familiar... ;D http://www.fx-sabers.com/forum/index.php?topic=20525.0

I'd also considered putting my Acerocket Obi pommel on it, but then I picked up the Orion.

Actually, both of these sabers were on my bench at the EXACT same time.   ;)  Bare bones and without the shrouds, it was hard to tell who's was who's.
