    Hey Luke, i'd be interested in one, pending final price. How much will you alter the clover design? Just the stem, or the leaf too?

    Probably just the stem. The first lighter was done from the lighter shown in the archives book. The smaller stem can be seen in the screenshots from the film.

    I'm not opposed to making other changes if most everyone agrees a change should be made, its up to the group (I say that, but I know how that can go, 50 different people want things 50 different ways, so eventually a design/decision would have to be made).

    I believe it will get going hopefully. Going to let the thread roll for another week or two. I'm getting some parties indicating interest by PM as well. Also, I haven't posted this on COW yet, so I can't also probably get a few more folks on there. After I sold out of the last lighters, I still had a few asking and some even paying, so I know there's interest, they just need to see the thread.

    I own one of the V1's, and it's certainly a very good replica for an even better price. I did a review of Luke's and RelicRaider's lighters here: http://www.therpf.com/showthread.php?t=235079 . But since a RelicRaider lighter is almost impossible to find, and if you find one, will probably 4 times as expensive as Luke's version, I guess Luke's one is the best on the market right now. With a more screen-accurate clover, it will even be a better deal.

    I'll probably stick with the lighters I have now. If this run is a go, I might get in if I have some spare budget. But right now I haven't :(. Anyway, good luck with a possible second run! Looking forward to the new design of the clover.

    Thanks for the review, I hadn't seen it until just now.

    What I would like to update with this one is the stem and do a very slightly larger clover.

    I appreciate the compliments on the previous run of lighters and very nice to see folks who not only purchased the first, but also interested in the second run.

    So with that said, bump for more interest.

    Not yet, wanted to check interest here first, but they will be offered there.

    It looks like interest has picked up a bit, so I'll be working on the new clover design.

    Alright, did a bit of work on the clover design (white badge size and shape is staying the same).

    What I did was very slightly enlarge the overall clover (probably hard to see in the comparison). However, I also changed the stem, thinner and less curve, like the one shown in the pic Tom provided.

    Opinions/feedback?

    If you want to be insanely obsessive about it the stem on V2, although more accurate, is now a teeny, tiny bit too thin.

    I agree with Jameth. Since you are redoing the design anyway ;-). Two remarks:
    1. The stem has the correct shape, but should indeed be a little bit bigger in general. But the curve and "aspect ratio" looks OK.
    2. I think the nerves in the leaves should also be a bit biggere compared to the leaves themselves. In the screecap the nerves "fill" the leaves a bit more (if this makes sense).

    Mmmm, I might snap up a V2 also. Still in doubt. I already have two lighters, and it's not that an iconic props. On the other hand: I'm an Indy addict (I have 8 Ra headpieces, for god's sake) and price is rather low... Mmm, let me sleep on it...

    I think, rhere should be a little bit more contrast in the different shades of green. :)

    Alrighty, back from checking out some of the Indy props (very cool and good time!) Loved seeing the diary and Leap of Faith painting in person, along with all the other items.

    Here's some more work on the lighter design (added more variation in the green shade, upsized the stem, and thickened the veins):

    The stem looks perfect. The veins look too thick. If you look at the pic with the lighter in his hand the vanes stems look a little thicker then the V.1 but not as thick as V.1a. The, I don't know what to call them but the little sprouts going off the stem look too thick in V.1a.

    BTW this is insanely nitpicky and I feel stupid pointing it out.

    Whatever you go with will be awesome just like your first run.

    Tom

    - - - Updated - - -

    Looking at this pic:


    I think V.1 is more accurate overall and especially in size, shape, color. I think the V.1a is too big.

    If you put the stem of V.1a on the V1 and then make the stem veins slightly thicker but the many little "sprouts" I am calling them, the same as on the V.1 I think that would be it.

    I agree with @jameth1971 the stem from V1.a and the clover of V1

    Keep up the great work Luke.

    I have tell you something.
    Don't get sentimental now dad, save it until we get out of here.

    From that screenshot, the leaves of the clover seem to have a 'love heart' shape. Which is captured better by the bolder outlines on your latest image.
    The stem looks great attachment-6.jpeg

    Not being nitpicky, I wanted feedback on it, and I appreciate the assistance.

    Good catch. I think the angle plays up the shape just a bit (from the second pic in those two, the heart shape is even more pronounced, so I believe the first one plays it up slightly).


    So...

    I've updated the comparisons (my last one should have been V.2a, not V.1a). Here's two different comparisons, which has V.2b (same overall shape as the original) and V.2c (more of the heart shape Raiders March mentions). On both of them the veins have been thinned a bit (between the original and V.2a), the stem stayed the same shape as the last (pushed to the left a bit like in the pic), and the green shading is the same as V.2a. Hopefully this hasn't gotten too confusing.

    Please let me know which you all prefer, V.2b or V.2c:

    I personally favor V.2c as well, I think the shape has a certain charm to it, but I will let the majority decide.

    V.2c looks great as far as overall look and details but I think it's overall too big.

    Compare the left and right edges of the clover in V.2c to the edges on the screenshot. There is a lot more white space on the screen used lighter hence the clover is smaller on th screen used lighter. There is a lot more white space between the top of the clover and the top of the lighter on the screen used as well.
