Hey everyone quick update,

In regards to the recessed emitter discussion, having it recessed looks much better. With that being said we are be exploring options for changing the emitter to be recessed. Our intent is to have it screen accurate as both a stand alone prop and as an FX saber.

These pictures of Valentine Costumes design(Patreon Here) gives you a good idea of what it will look like, minus the tweaks we are looking into.

Hey everybody,

Ever since Moff Gideon sliced through the tie fighter at the end of season 1, I have wanted to make a darksaber to go with my Mando build. This is an interest thread for the production of a screen accurate anodized aluminum darksaber HILT. Details below.

  • Here is a proof of concept file for visuals. File by Valentine Costumes
  • We are in talks with a local machine shop that specializes in small to medium parts
  • Price projected to be $200, subject to change
  • Anodized black with silver highlights
  • Working on electronics compatibility
  • This hilt will be compatible with The Saber Trade's blades on Facebook. This will have a more screen accurate blade orientation than Hasbro
  • First run will have a deposit of $75. If successful could become multiple runs

Interested!

Would personally go for CFX but will accept Proffie as well with a SaberBay blade, so I can't wait to see how this looks!
I wanted CFX but there seemed to be better profiles for the darksaber available for Proffie.

I can't wait for the results either, we have been talking with The Saber Trade about blades for our hilt. He also makes the blades for SaberBay.

I'm not entirely sure what this manufacturer is capable of and what methods and quotes they have but would offering 2 different tops be a possibility? Then when ordering people can specify which they prefer with their deposit?

Good question. We originally wanted to do two different inserts, one for display and one for the blade. But we have since decided to combine them into two for the best of both worlds while staying as accurate as possible. Hope this helps.
