Quote from Phil on the Custom Light Saber Owners Facebook feed:
Want Adaptive Saber Parts in your home town? Ask your local game store to carry the all new Adaptive Saber Parts retail display.

That would be cool

Another quote with more information:
This is the very first one, if you would like to see this display in your local tabletop game store or comic shop talk to the manager of your local shop about carrying the ASP display. The display is free and the wholesale discount is 30% off MSRP.

This would be incredible! I am imagining walking into a store like GameStop and buying,assembling and dueling/playing with your saber the same day! Holy shit! :woohoo:

That would be very cool! :ohmy: I really would like to be able to look at the parts before buying them.

That is a VERY smart idea; there's probably a lot of people out there that would love a custom saber but wouldn't realize until they see it in person.

Though I would hope SF would thoroughly train somebody at the shop about the ins-and-outs of the kits.

This is pretty damn cool! I guess the question would be whether Saberforge would be able to supply enough parts to outweigh demand if these get really popular.

Not to be Debbie Downer, but I'd wonder the feasibility of this. This is a pretty niche hobby, and not a cheap one either. It would take a sizable commitment on SF's part to stock parts to resellers, and I would wonder if that would be worth the return.

I think it would be cool to go to my local hobby or gaming store and be able to buy a full saber, but I don't think individual parts would have the same appeal. If I were SF, I would look at setting up resellers to sell full sabers instead.

The type of store might be important too. Walmart might not make an ideal point; imagine sales girl Sally from high school answering customer questions about ASP. :whistle:

A hobby games store is different. :)

Well, the folks at one of my local hobby shops said they thought it was cool and would "look into it," so I guess we'll see what happens.
