Abandoned MKIII #1

Abandoned MKIII ANH #1

This is the first of the abandoned by client sabers that I need to offload.  I can't just sit on them forever and as I post each one, I will offer them for auction at Fx starting at what the client owes.  Each saber will have been abandoned with no contact from the client for at least 6 months (actually, all of them are at least a year) and I have sent repeated "pay or quit" notices.  This one is from just before I redesigned the MKIII, so it is the Parks designed version.  That means little since my redesign was mostly internal.  This one has a very nice BIN6 blue/BIN1 Cyan blade and "natural" weathering (very light)/worn look.  It does have the newer vented pommel.  A great feature is the 4000 mAh battery pack for epic run times.  All of the Abandoned sabers will be auctioned in "as-is" state.  They are not used, but they are pre-built. 

Particulars:
MKIII (ANH version) hilt
Crystal Shard v1
MKIII Optics Module
12W RGBW (SkyBlu/Cyan Blade and White FoC)
Triple-Baked Natural "light" weathering
3.7V (18650) 4000 mAh pack
LDM 26mm HO speaker in Machined MKIII-specific Resonance

Wow, with all the folks asking me via PM when I was going to get around to auctioning this I figured there may be at least a chirp.  No auction for this one.

"PEEP".  I was just being respectful for this fallen hero. :jediblue:...and a little sad it had to be auctioned. I know your pain in getting stuck with projects that people "say they want", you build then they disappear.

I'll get off the "soapbox" too much pain. :(

I thought it as always is a beauty. The video was great. It's too "clean" ;D for me.

It needs a good home to be adored .you can't go wrong with this it's a GG MRK III! People!

I'm REALLY tempted to buy this... I'm not a fan of the Obi-wan designs after AOTC, but this saber looks great! I love LDM/GG builds...

Its probably out of my price range though... :(

Out of curiousity GG, what would the ballpark starting price be for the Obi were it to go to auction?

Not committing or anything, but need to figure out if its going to possibly go for less than a grand ::).

It is indeed going to start well south of a grand.  I am at work right now and will need ot check to confirm exactly what was paid (that part is already paid after all ;))  My guess is it starts in the $700-800 range, but I truly don't remember since it has been so long since my original conversations with this particular client.

Since there does seem to be at least a little interest, I will research the info tonight and get the auction up, that way folks will at least know how much, lol.  Now that the forum seems to at least be allowing me to post new threads I am hopeful that it will work.

Correct.  At auction, the starting price will be the balance due.  I will get it up this week.  I am gone all weekend or i would do it sooner, lol.
