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?
Probably coincidence… ‘The Princess’ is a pretty quick jump for naming this hilt… we’ve actually decided on a different title for the production run… one which epitomizes a feeling not just a character.

No offense to the post listed but it’s not accurate, there are key areas that jump out like a sore thumb. If I had to guess they used KRSabers photos and the StarWars Show photos to make an amalgam but ignored details. Anyone can claim accurate but without their homework shown it’s a very easy claim… and that hilt lacks the details and machining quality necessary to make that claim….

It’s probably not appropriate for me to even comment like that. I don’t feel great about it but the recasting of hilts out of China has recently become blatant and grotesque.

Anyway… what we’re looking at with our hilt design does not have a comparable so far that I’ve seen. Element and assembly is novel insofar that I can tell

I liked (laughed at) the other PRINCESS description, "mother of pearl STICKERS"

Either this is a very bad translation, or an admission of a cheap copy.

:D :p :devil:

:lol:
Not a great translation if they’re trying to say ‘adhesive backed mother of pearl vaneer’
Word selection is key.

Thought so. I had some very raised eyebrows when I saw the post about that run. Their claims were… bold to say the least :lol:

He's just a reseller, that is a TXQ's Leia.

Inside the Lucasfilm Archives: Lightsabers of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker | StarWars.com says Leia's saber is "A silver and rose gold base along the grip has been accented with Mother of Pearl inlay". In the video they say copper color. Do we know if the prop was actually rose gold or copper?
This was discussed extensively earlier in the thread. The prop is copper but post production color correction/filters/varying lighting sometimes makes it look rose-gold in the film itself.

This is gorgeous. Is it too late to put my name down for a rose gold version? If not please add me! Also, is there a comparison shot of the copper vs rose gold model?

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.

I'm sure I've read this somewhere, but I can't find it anymore,... will these copper hilts be real copper or will it be anodized in a copper color?
