Ok now Im fustrated!
« on: February 09, 2020, 10:42:44 AM »
Found a site GOTH3D for Ahsoka tano Rebels lightsaber.
No where I know of would sell an empty hilt (either sold out or no longer making) or STL files so I can 3D print one.

What AM I SUPPOSE TO DO?

Patiently wait to see if someone does a run of them again. Save your money in the meantime.

I find your arguments vague and unconvincing.

Quiet! *Slap* And thereís a fresh one if you mouth off again.

clone wars s7 coming back in a few weeks I hope someone remakes a rebels version but tbh I dont think anybody will, it's already been many years.
I contacted Saber and many other places, they all said limited edition. Then people who already bought it would up the prices to 1k+ for resell.

I thought the star wars community would work together so everyone would have their favorite saber or at least put one together, or share STL files so at least we can print it out. But no one is sharing. All these tutorial on how to put it together but there is no empty hilt on sale.

Empty 404 pages, removed contacted pages.

It's all profit, SMH. Out of all the sabers, Ahsoka Tano is the one that caught my eye. AND IT IS SO HARD TO GET!

Thanks for nothing. :(

Congrats to those that bought it many years ago. I am late to the game.

I know Vaderís Vault had a couple of them left a while back. Not sure of they still do, but they werenít cheap to start with.  Iíll ask Luminara when I see her.

Those are the ones. Those particular sabers (which need CNC machining to make), donít come cheap.

Itís an expensive hobby.

They sell the Ahsoka Rebels at Galaxyís Edge now, theyíre more affordable than the other versions that have been produced over the years.

I have a pair of the VV Fulcrum set coming... hopefully soon? I purchased last February so it's actually been slightly over 12 months wait time for me. After the upgrade the price is $3000. I have both them with CFX pixel installs and when I get them unfortunately I will have to be selling them. We're just waiting for the updated CFX chassis to come. If you would like to purchase my spot you sure can... we just have to have VV switch the names and shipping addresses

If you start with a "fresh" purchase you would be looking at a bear minimum 12-14 months lead time. I'm already at 12

I have the disney versions it doesnt feel the same

it shouldnt be this expensive just saying.

i understand there is labor and materials cost but making thing limited and the supply and demand on these collectibles while other sabers are around  $150-500 makes me go why is this ahsoka tano rebels version is in the thousands range and her clone wars version is 500ish. her clone wars are still available to purchase while rebels are oos. why cant it still be produced more slightly with cheaper material.

if kr sabers starts one day makes it again which i think not the prices will go back down

im all new to this im sorry.
and how does it take 12 months does he have other commissions and orders thats why?

There were issues during production, and VV also decided to wait until the CFX was released and included that as part of the package. In the case of this particular hilt, itís the shape and design and the fact that it takes machinery that costs $100,000. Plus itself to help bring these to life.

And no, if these remade again, the prices arenít magically going to come back down.

Youíve just picked a very expensive pair of hilts to really like. As others have pointed out, this isnít a cheap hobby

I find your arguments vague and unconvincing.

Cost differences Rebels vs Clone wars

Clone wars hilts are circular tubes. Easier to machine, measure and install.
The Rebels are bent flattened tubes in the shape of a Katana hilt. They are not easy to machine, usually cast or CNC. Measurement are harder. Installs, depending on the design are harder.

The KRs when released were 800.00 empty. There is a completed set of KRs in the TF for 1200.00 which IMO is a very reasonable price.
Which can be upgraded to better sound and lighting as tech progress through the next few years.

I own a set of the KRs, and am happy with the set. If curious, my build KRsabers/One Replicas Ashoka Tano Rebels Set with Crystal Shard 3.0

Ok seriously, two sellers cancelled on me. What luck!

Dont yall ever check your sabers if it works or not and why would you let anyone modify something so expensive?
