    Dec 28, 2017, 2:59 AM - Phoenix Props development: Ben Solo #1

    I've got a fever, and the only prescription is more Ben Solo.



    Still tweaking, but almost there!

    This won't be a simple single blade mod of the V2, we're doing much more than this. This will be a bit of a redesign of the V2 to get even closer to the Prop Shop hilt, but modified for Solo.

    Will the run begin when the last jedi is on Blu-ray and more references come out?

    I read somewhere the release is somehow tied into George Lucas's Birthday so that it happens shortly after... it was on the Internet so it's true.

    I will open the run before, and am working to time it so that final machining will happen after we know if there are more references or not in the upcoming release.

    We have relocated the aux switch in this one vs the V2 cross guard. It's in an awesome place, and a secret for now.

    But it's really ingenious.

    April is most probably correct. TFA was released for home media on April 5. Rogue One was released on April 4. Both films had the digital versions available a few days earlier.

    There was also a leak from Amazon UK that implied an April release. That leak also showed that they're releasing a 4k version!

    Nothing worth sharing yet. We have the major updates done to the design but now we're working on some very minor details that take much longer.

    Instead of just pumping out a V2 port we're redesigning it so it's even better.

    Yeah, it's crazy. Unfortunately, we didn't watermark it, so many people don't know it's origins... lesson learned!

    I just saw this on Google and couldnít help but laugh a little.


    In any case, I think youíre doing a great job modelling this lightsaber - particularly with there being so little to go on at this stage. Keep up the good work!
