Vader's Vault TFU Starkiller Run 3

RISE MY APPRENTICE!!!!!!!!!!

At long last, Vader's Vault is excited to bring you the 3rd run of our Flagship saber: The Force Unleashed Starkiller

The saber that started it all for VV, literally. We got into this business because we HAD to have one and the only person making them at the time was doing a poor job and ripping people off. This was our first 'run' at VV, and has been our flagship saber ever since. We set the bar for a quality production Starkiller saber back in 2010 and now in 2018, we are doing it again with major updates to the design

It has been a long process bringing all of our desired upgrades to life, and we started with the exterior. The first 2 runs of SK's had a tri-color anodizing scheme that was difficult to pull off for most anodizing shops and it resulted in a finish that while 'good' wasn't really my dream finish. It was difficult to weather due to the clear anodizing on the rear grip and pommel, and the copper areas were sort of frozen in a 'tarnished penny' color state. This time, we decided we wanted REAL copper and redesigned the construction in order to have the emitter, LED heatsink/crystal chamber headpiece, and rear grip band done in actual copper. This opened up whole new possibilities for weathering and aging, not to mention that real copper is just sexy as xxx. We also changed the crystal chamber bars from aluminum to steel for extra durability.

The real changes come from the inside. The whole chassis was redesigned to not only accommodate larger power cells, but adding in BlueTooth for RICE™, a 15 accent LED PCB and all that squeezed into a machined delrin mounting, surrounded by super detailed aluminum and copper sleeves with brass/copper/aluminum piping, vents and other details.

I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if thousands of dollars suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.
