Just received my package today! It came a day early! My box was in good condition. Not dents or tears anywhere. When I opened it i could tell that it was packaged nice an neat with a good amount of bubble wrap. They also threw in a free shirt for me! When I pulled the bubble wrap off of the hilt I was blown away, the workmanship is incredible and you can tell they didn't try to rush on the build. The weight of the saber is perfect, the balance is amazing, the length is great as well. This a phenomenal piece of work and I am so happy that I made this purchase. It's my first saber, but it will definitely not be my last!

I messaged saber forge asking where I can purchase one, they responded saying "they don't go on sale until the fall but they would be more than happy to include one in my package "

There is no doubt that this saber, in the weathered finish, and the red LED are just a natural combination. It is just something you could easily see a Sith lord brandishing.

In truth, you can put ANY color on that saber, and it is gorgeous. I know this because I have seen photos of many colors, and they were all fantastic. Also, my son has one in Indigo, so I have some first hand knowledge as well. But, there is just something about that red....
Imagine what you will know tomorrow....

I've heard that the indigo is awesome! I chose red because I'm a huge fan of darth bane and I couldn't bring myself to get a different color

Did you get the quick connects with it? If so, you can change to whatever color you like in a matter of minutes! If not, it is still do-able but not something I would try unless you were familiar with the electronics.

I completely forgot to add the quick connects. But I have a friend who is really good at working on the internals of computers and pretty much anything that has a board so he may be able to help me out

Quick connects aren't available on the banes, because of the way the claw install is, they won't come with them.

Other than that... pretty saber you have there!

Thanks for the info! I'm glad I found that out before I bought it. Do you know if the 12watt+ is usable on the bane?

As a KS bane pledger I'm extremely grateful for the chance to add a +12w champ (indigo w/ viridian.) l'm wondering if at that point it ships will it be asp compatible?

Any way I slice I feel any bane hilt will look amazing in indigo for a light, grey or dark sided force user.

I was hoping I could swap my asp emitters between my sabers depending on the color of my generous reward, but indigo is my true love.

I'm a little confused by what you mean? The 12W+ utilizes the same connects as the 12W does. It's just a difference in how the module itself is put together, which results in a tighter beam of light, and more energy efficient LED. So of course all the LED modules are ASP compatible. Unless you mean something else that I'm not understanding, lol.

It's more a question if the bane champ version through KS will have the send it in to change electronics or quick connect/do it yourself warranty.

The Banes you can install the kits in to, they've said, and it won't affect the warranty or anything like that. The reason quick connects aren't available on pre-installed sabers is more of a safeguard for themselves, as it would be easy to pull the wires out too far that are soldered in on pre-installed sabers, or damage them with the claw/shroud. It's a lot like it is with the old Epoch, where quick connects weren't available because it was easy to damage the wires on the windows. But when you're taking the whole kit in/out, or just pulling the LED out, it's a little different, so. Yeah.

TL;DR - yeah, they'll be fine on banes. :)
