Darth Bane Curved Run
« on: August 11, 2011, 10:55:19 AM »
After alot of feedback, and even more parts research, I am pleased to announce that a small run of 10 Darth Bane Curved lightsabers is possible!



Here are the details as they stand so far...

The saber run would be almost identical to the prototype with these minor differences;
1. Brushed Stainless Steel curved body instead of chrome
2. Different rubber grip (using the same material as the Corran Horn emitter)
3. No rumble motor - I've had some complaints from those who don't like how inherently inconsistent they can be
4. New material for the Krayt Bone grip - may be indestiguishable from the original
5. some wires will be visible in the crystal chamber


Here's how it will be the same as the original;
1. CF 5
2. Red P4 LED (I will not use a Ledengin 10w red for Flash on Clash because of space limitations, and the battery pack)
3. Red 7 segment bargraph in the crystal chamber
4. oh yeah - a crystal chamber revealed by sliding the Krayt Bone grip
5. Acceptible for moderate-light duelling (claws will catch clothes/skin)


Price will be $1450 each.

Timetable might look like this depending on my partners availability.

- Deposit of $450 would be due to secure your place (ON OR BEFORE THE 5th of Sept)
- Payment #2 of $450 would be due around Halloween
- Balance would be paid before saber ships (first week of December - hopefully)

Feel free to post questions and comments here... but only say "sign me up" if you'll honestly have the cash and committment. If there's enough serious interest - I will do the run.

More details and video can be seen here;

UPDATE  (Aug. 31,2011)

Here's the official list. It's in the proper order - as I have included those who spoke with me outside of this forum. It may change depending on deposits paid. A deposit secures your place - then your name will be marked yellow.
- ONLY PAY THE DEPOSIT WHEN YOU HAVE CONFIRMED DETAILS WITH ME BY EMAIL    madcow.genesis@gmail.com
- If you are in the top 10 - please email me ASAP with your full name, fx-sabers handle, shipping address I will make up an invoice for you.
- $450 deposit due on or before Sept 5, 2011 - I would advise waiting until then - as the price may vary by as much as $100 or so. Price will be firmy set by Sept. 5 (but contact me with your info now)

Nice...this is actually one of the few sabers that I've downloaded all the pics and vid for even though it was one of a kind  at the time.  I'd hoped some day to have one similar to it.  Awesome!

if you throw a decimal point in the price i will buy one.

ahhh im so annoyed I cant afford this. Ive just learned about Darth Bane by reading the EU books and i think hes awesome. and when i saw you create this saber it blew me away.

No doubt you will sell all 10 quickly :)

Ever since I saw your video of your Darth Bane, I have been hoping a run might be possible and here we are!  Please Sign Me Up,  I'm in!
 
Rob, will these also have that glow you see in the prototype from the chamber spilling out from under the simulated bone grip?

That I do not know.  It will depend on the new material I am using, I still have some work to do on it - I will do my best to keep every detail from the original.
