    Pricing is currently not fully finalized but a good estimate of what can be expected. Final pricing and binding deposits will not be required until the start of March when final pricing is fully released.

    Hey dday ! That's a very ambitious project! It will probably feel more like a lightsaber than the real prop, which was probably just a 3D resin print!

    I'm looking forward to seeing how you tackle those little...Pentel Clic Eraser-like rectangular, flat slides and the grooves that run beneath them! And those little fin supports between the outer and inner layers of the emitter too!!!

    Good Luck with your run!

    Since my V1 andV2 projects I've got those details on lockdown, realizing them gets easier every time.

    There will be a deadline for signups, but preorders will be open until about April 15th. After final machining for the production is locked and the machinist deposit is made, the preorder will end and the price goes up.

    I've been out last week, but am back now. Still a little sick.

    We're still proceeding. The files are in their "final" state now and waiting for the machinist to return to begin the prototype phase. there should be no additional changes unless we learn something new about the actual prop from the film or other source.

    CS is crystal shard. It is a mid-tier soundboard with fewer features than CF. CF is crystal focus which is the top of the line soundboard. It has the most features and the best hardware. I've been working on my own Luke TLJ lightsaber and the CF9 is a lot of fun. It's pricey, but worth it.

    See the below comment by Ben:


    Thanks for the deposits. I'm knee deep in invoices and such, but the way I"m doing it this time will help me keep track of things very easily, and makes it easier for you all as well.

    All deposit requests are out to everyone. so if you don' thave one, check spam for it. If still nothing, PM/email me!

    Have you seen the new photos? It looks like the only two things that are different on the actual prop are that the pommel greeblie is rotated 180 degrees and the emitter has the heat burn color scheme.

    Credit to Accidental and Lukyanov for the photos.

    Haha, now that I look at it, I don’t really know what I was seeing. I thought I saw the notch from the pommel circle on the side where the cutout would be, but it isn’t clear.

    Ok, I do seewhat you mean. It looks like the U shape in the endcap is reversed. Not 100% yet though. It does appear so. Will need to get the 4K version to be sure.

    I did and filled the form out. There hasn't been any email requesting the deposit yet. Maybe Derrick is unavailable.

    The Preorder pricing will be available until 15 April, but they will be available for purchase for longer. I would suggest you get locked in as soon as possible to save you some money.
