Hi,
Since the Rose Gold numbers are being increased I’d be interested in amending my interest to that over the copper, but would depend on final pricing.
Many thanks

we won't be able to commit to pricing for the tiers until we have everything fully quoted, but we DO expect the rose gold limiteds to be about $100-150 more than the standard ones based on our plating quotes.
Can I please amend my interest for the rose gold version over the original copper , thanks :)

Hi: Might be part of a trend here, but I would like to change from the copper list to the rose gold list if possible. Thanks!!

So rather than continuing to hijack Valor's thread here: ROS *Spoiler* Saber design

I have made sufficient progress to start putting feelers out to gauge interest in a hilt run for this saber.

many thanks to Valor for getting us a good and healthy start.

having procured Valor's initial model, I have been studiously making adjustments and converting the model to a machinable set of structures for an FX based saber run.

In the same vein as the "MoM of all Heroes" hilt, BRRogers and I are teaming up with Lewis (Malaki Skywalker) from 7 Chambers to look at producing this hilt.

based on a rough cut the internal cavity would be 1.15" for most of the cavity for electronics components (and incidentally chassis modules exist at this size). These are all subject to change however as we continue design.

we would be looking to machine this from 7075 just like the "MoM of All Heroes" and we would be adding the coppery accents using natural copper and a limited set with that copper rose gold plated. Based on our research it also appears that the flatter parts of the grip fins that are not ridged actually look to be pearl like iridescent and as such we're looking at doing mother of pearl inlay for these pieces. This all supports the saber of a princess and royalty.

more details to follow as we work out design and logistics and timing.

caveat: we know some other are also racing to produce this design, so this will be a competitive market however we think with the precious material elements as well as BRRogers' and my obsession for detail, we think we will have a compelling offering.

so now the for rub. We need to understand what sort of demand there might be for such a run, so if you have interest, please chime in here! This will help drive our efforts.

please speak up if you are interested in us doing a run of this and would want one.

High interest in one regular and maybe the red gold variant

Not gonna lie, with the Starkiller one going on sale, I'm getting super nervous that I'm gonna pass on all of them and end up without a gorgeous Princess saber. Do we have any more details? Verity Cosplay or BRRogers

I am still in the final stages of accuracy tuning and then it will be going to fabrication. We expect the Leia and V2 to both hit approximately the same time and I will confess work has had me very busy and I've been delayed in final cleanup of the leia model.

I can certainly share the current state however:

To bounce off of that. We are moving forward with trialing a long term agreement with a UK machinist. Beginning with prototype sampling of the V2 to benchmark their quality of fabrication.

Chinese manufacturing delays of every variety have been incredibly woeful and plagued us since we began getting quotes for the Hero- pandemic aside. Even with the recent uptick in unsanctioned file sharing and lightsaber re-casting we’re making this move to increase reliability and open transparency as it allows our production coordinator (Lewis) to visit directly and check progress beyond keeping our product and files out of recasting hands.

It’s taking a little longer and it costs a bit more on the front end for us, but by the time we’ve eliminate shipping and import fees it winds up being a very similar cost factor for final delivery.

Still interested in this am double checking if the interests peoples have been updated to the list at all? I just wanted to verify my interests in both colors

I need to do another cleanup pass but will do that soon about the time the model is complete and off to fab. I'm about 90% done with minor tuning so not much longer guys. Thanks for being patient.

I know you all are impatient. I have my reasons for taking my time on this hilt. This one is going to be a memorial run and I have a lot of personal stake in seeing this one as perfect as I can; you all have come to know and love that about Veracity. We want it done right, not fast.

That said here is a nice little Tuesday bonus for you all. Toggle of the model overlay over top one of the high resolution photos of the prop...

I want you to take all the time you need and dont rush anything. And I also want it right now.

What's so hard about that?

All kidding aside...as impatient as we are, these updates actually do make it easier, at least for me. Let's me know it's not forgotten, it's just taking time to get it right. That's cool. Good isn't always fast.

All kidding aside...as impatient as we are, these updates actually do make it easier, at least for me. Let's me know it's not forgotten, it's just taking time to get it right. That's cool. Good isn't always fast.

Sharing a bit of vulnerability for a moment... as some of you may know, during the MoM development, my wife of 12 years took her own life. Leia had already begun design and this hilt was THE one she wanted to see Veracity Labs do more than ANY other.

Part of the time taken here is this hilt (even moreso than the Hero, V2 or any of the others we are working on), has a VERY close tie to my heart.

I may be even admittedly OVER agonizing on every detail and while I don't claim to have the origin sources or any other inside Intel, I can say THIS hilt has been something I have poured my literal heart and soul into.

To that End, yes. I want to see this done RIGHT. I'd rather spend a LONG time making this absolutely as perfect as I am able and bring every bit of knowledge and skill I have to bear on this design. For ME this is more than a run. It's a memorial.

I don't say any of that to play for sympathy or forgiveness on delays... more as an explanation as to why we are not just cranking this out.

If I wanted a close enough version cranked out I would have gone with Korbanth's. Star Wars is eternal, take the time you need.
 

It seems there’s someone else who’s also doing a Leia run, and using the same name as your Leia as well as claiming to be the most accurate…

Is this a coincidence, or is there something fishy going on?
