    Howdy,

    I bought this Kylo Ren off Etsy, through these people who seem to have closed up shop https://www.etsy.com/shop/6123D

    I got this painted one and an unfinished one "Without the red wire", but the unfinished one has not come yet.

    Ya, I like it, not a huge fan of the Paint Job, I should have only gotten it unfinished.

    here are some horrible photos attempting to show size.

    There was a note at the bottom of this guy's page saying who designed it, but that page appears to be down now.

    This thing is too small though, right? feels small could just be this guy's print, or I could be totally wrong, but this doesn't feel right.

    I'm no expert but the size looks good to me.

    I've noticed the same thing on every Kylo Ren saber Ive seen designed here...and the problem is us: you and me. We are expecting bigger for some reason based on the trailer, but even that one at SWCA was right on with these dimensions I think. I was expecting it to dwarve most known film sabers and it doesn't. I think the cross guard aspect caused us to overestimate the size of it.

    You know, I think you are right, but it makes me want to build a big * broadsword version, but let's be honest, that's very unlikely.

    I keep thinking of what it was like for Kylo Ren to build this saber, if the reports we are hearing are true. Collecting artifacts for years, obsessed with the Sith, If this is, as it appears, at least 3 lightsabers put together, what was that like, to Learn how to build this thing that has passed into myth and legend.

    That's what would be a blast to recreate, tear down to parts of the original, from the inside out.

    Here is the unfinished version, just received. I like it a lot. This will be a lot of fun.

    I also bought some PVC Pipe this weekend and I think I might Build my own from scratch, because, you know, I have SO much free time.
