I.S.D.C. Potential Run: "The Starwalker Saber"
« on: May 18, 2017, 09:37:48 AM »
The Starwalker Saber
An Illuminated Saber Design and Concepts Original Ready to Install Hilt








I love Graflex designs.  I also wanted to design a windowed crystal chamber saber and the original Starkiller saber lends to this as well.  Using cues from both of these iconic designs and putting my own design flavor into it resulted in the named for now “Starwalker Saber” . 

Just seeing what type of interest there is for a run on this design.  Still getting pricing ironed out, but looking to be $225-$250 per hilt.  $100 dollar deposit.   Should be ready by the end of the summer.   Not taking deposits yet, but gaging interest.  There will be 2 chassis options which are sold separately, one with a crystal chamber (shown below) and the other with a recharge port (still in the design phase).  Both will be available through me and Shapeways.

Let me know of your interest and/or thoughts.  Questions welcomed.

Great design.  Interested as well.
Do or do not. There is no try.

I'll be doing some installs for this run.  I have other certified installers that will help if the demand for installs gets too high and I can't turn them in timely manner, so it shouldn't be a problem. : )

I've been wanting an Obi-style grenade mixed with a Graflex, and the gold! Hopefully I'll have some funds when this gets up and running.

Cool design! Interested!

Wondering what soundboard + battery options this can potentially fit?

Also, you mentioned that there are 2 chassis options, the crystal chamber one, and one with a recharge port.
Does this mean that the crystal chamber one doesn't have a recharge port?

Both will have recharge ports.  On the crystal chamber one the recharge port is back near the speaker (shown in pics).  The other chassis will have the recharge port where the crystal chamber is on the other chassis.  This will enable the user to charge without opening in the saber to get to the chassis.

These chassis will be tailored to work with all soundboards both Plecter and NEC,, but really are only for single cell 18650s.

Interested for sure but I'm torn between this and the other one it seems to be based on, the threshold.

I'm also interested if I can get one fully installed :)

I'm interested in an empty if you would ship to the UK (at my cost obviously).
63 Lightsaber hilts in the collection, and counting....

I just received a Threshold and can attest it is a beautiful and extremely well designed saber...as this looks to be also. I guess it depends on whether you want a beautiful saber right now or a beautiful saber when this is ready but you wont go wrong either way. And I suspect Habbena wouldn't mind if you buy Threshold now and this later... ;)

I'd like to do that myself, though I just blew all my 'saber $aving$' on the TCSS May-the-4th sale and on my new Threshold - which was a great purchase :).

So count me as 'interested' but alas I can't make any 'commitment' yet until I see how my 'saber budget' shapes up over the next couple months...judging by the Threshold though I'm betting this will be another winner and prized by whomever gets one.
To DREAM the IMPOSSIBLE DREAM. To FIGHT the unbeatable foe. To BEAR with unbearable sorrow. To RUN where the brave dare not go. To RIGHT the unrightable wrong. To LOVE, PURE AND CHASTE, FROM AFAR [-sigh-]. To TRY, when your arms are too weary; to REACH the unreachable Star!... This is my Quest; To follow that Star, no matter how hopeless, no matter how far...
