LOL, you guys are funny.

I of course am cool with whatever you choose to do. I have "been there, done that" many times over, so whatever you choose will work for me.  :) Just to satisfy my curiosity on the V2, tho:

1. Are you using PJ's cards or the standard circuit card?
2. Touch plate or buttons out of the clamp (I am assuming you were joking with Scruffy, lol)

accurate 7-stripe PJ cards and Tri-rings.

CSv1 for you.  Yeah, I am messing with Scruff-ster, touch plate will prolly be fine ;)

As the dude below would say, "Perfectomundo!"

Been awhile since I had a V2 with that old school PJ card anyways.   ^-^

Just because I haven't come across the 9W before, what are the major differences the 9W and the Tri-Rebel and which company are the 9W from? If there's already been a discussion about the pros and cons of the 9W can you link me to it?

Cheers.

There has not been, nor is there likely to be, a discussion.  It is an LED that I have made for my clients' sabers.  Many of them are in the wild at this point, but in essence they are full 3W RGB (3W each) under one dome.  A souped up RGB Prolight would be an apt description.  I do most of my Red and Green bladed sabers with FoC with these LEDs.  If you want to see a saber with it, take a look at Sanjuro's new Malakyte and both of the Revans I just posted.  Each die is similar in brightness to a rebel.  I love them for this application in case anyone is wondering. ;)

Usually the answer is no.  However, the answer will be yes in this one case ;)

Under the other end of the touch plate ;)  (Both switches under the touch plate).

Thanks fellas.  Now we just need Mac23 and I will have my list ready to print.  Wat is having some health problems and I am waiting on one more box before I may begin.  Hopefully he feels better soon.

I have the details from everyone.

A small-ish update.  I decided to roll on the V2's.  I was going to go in order, but with Wat's health issues holding up the final group of hero parts I decided to do the V2's.  The first one has been delivered to it's owner (Caine) and will be posted in the next few days.  J. Lund's V2 is also finished.  The next (and final) two from the list will happen this week.  I realize that some folks asked me to hold theirs back, but I simply have too many projects to do and will complete them anyways.  If folks need me to sit on them I will just have to do so.

Oh, the stated goal of creating the greatest V2 ever created to go along with the greatest Hero ever created...has been realized.  The V2's are incredible...and I may know a thing or 50,000 about V2's, lol.
