    Hello everyone,

    In case you have missed the Luke ROTJ v2 lightsaber thread in the Star Wars section of the board, Brandon Alinger revealed at SWCA that the original Luke ROTJ v2 lightsaber prop is alive and well and in his collection. He displayed a number of photos to the crowd there, some of which have found their way onto the internet http://www.therpf.com/showthread.php?t=1862&p=3625305&viewfull=1#post3625305

    Working from these new picture, production photos, and measurements taken off of an original OWK stunt saber from ANH, I have drawn up plans to replicate the orignal Luke v2 lightsaber prop. These will be the most accurate versions ever produced.

    Here you can see some comparisons between the original prop and my recent modelI will be doing a short run of 30 blanks based off of this model. It will be your job to get a clamp, lever, and card. Slothfurnace will be doing a run of cards. Roman has clamps, Roygilsing will be doing levers.

    The saber will come in 4 parts: emitter, body, and pommel, and conical knob. They will be hollow, and the emitter will be able to rotate like the original prop. You will have to screw everything together and paint and weather the prop. (I will provide a build tutorial when the parts come in).

    The cost for the saber body should be $165.00 plus shipping.
    This will be a limited run of 30 (with me getting the first 2, so really 28) and these will be sold on a first come first serve basis.
    To reserve your spot please post here that you're on board.
    I expect that if you post here, you accept that you have made a commitment to follow through on your purchase.

    I will be placing my order at the end of the week, and if my shop's estimate holds true (and it did last time) I should have everything in a month.
    So, don't doddle ;)

    OK. So we've passed 30. But people keep asking to jump on board. I know there have been a lot of folks waiting on this run for a while, so I'm going to keep this thread open until midnight tonight and I'll take any names who want to jump on. Don't worry, I'll make it work. But at midnight I'm going to have to call this run and start moving forward. So, if you want to get in on this, post soon.

    Also, I'm going to get a quote on the cone knobs too. If they're not too much, I'll add them to the order with the same price I quoted above.

    Edit May 6th.

    So, the list is now closed. Since the list ended up being double what I expected, I'm going to have to finance this a little bit differently. My shop requires that I pay half up front and then follow up with the second half when the parts are completed. So, what I'm going to do is front the first half myself out of pocket. Then when the parts are ready, I will post pictures for all of you and ask for payments. This will allow me to cover the other half. On your end, it won't be very different. It will just mean an extra week or so between the time you pay and the time the parts show up at your door.

    These will be machined from 6061 aluminum and $165.00 is for the 3 parts: the emitter, the body, and the pommel.

    Shouldn't be too bad. I haven't checked out prices yet. But last time I sold sabers I think it was something like $15.00

    Well it looks like we're on our way to hit 30 by morning. That being the case, I think I'll probably leave the sign up open for a day or so and expand the run size so that everyone who wants to get in on this will have a chance and so that people who aren't insomniacs don't get left out in the cold. :)

    sounds good, hopefully it's around that then :)

    been waiting for this run since your original interest thread & it's looking really good, can't wait

    I will need a D-Ring too please

    regards the diamond knurled cones I've found the Transcriptors website but I can't see anywhere on there to buy the cones (unless I'm looking in the wrong place)

    found an an image of one that links to their site but it just takes you to their homepage

    what am I doing wrong? Or have we already bought them all up:lol

    I'm going to e-mail them and ask about that. Also, Kurtyboy gave me measurements off some of his vintage Transcriptor knobs. So, I might just go ahead and get a quote from my shop for these too, depending on what Transcriptors says.

    Wow. These are going fast. I will leave this open for a little while more, since I don't want people who've been waiting a while to miss out. But since I'm putting up my own money for this, and since I have a limited amount of cash to invest in this project right now, I don't think I'll be able to do much more then 40 of these at a time.

    I like many others have been following the saber thread intently and am pleased to see you finally offer these. Thank you.
    I understand why you are not taking any monies until such times as these are ready, but perhaps you should consider requesting a deposit? I'm certain all who are interested in obtaining one of these will be more than happy to accommodate.
