It came!!

There was no updates at all on etsy or with USPS, lol but the mailman delivered today!
Whoo Hoo!

I'll do a proper review when I can.
Until then...

-- Info --
Hero w/RGBA Black Lotus
Ordered Oct 22nd off ETSY.
Got the pre ship notification on Nov 29th and the ship notice on Dec 2nd.
Got 0 updates after that... Showed up today, Dec 30th.
When i purchased it, the etsy site was still listing 5-6 weeks, but the next week they bumped it to 8-10 weeks.
My total wait was 9 weeks. I ordered a 2nd Black Lotus for my wife on Oct 24th, and we got it delivered on Dec 23rd.
So both came within the 8-10 week time frame.
--

This thing is sick, so well designed and put together.
It's got a great weight and feel too it, I love the wrap.
The blades on this thing are soo awesome, definitely the most evil looking saber SF makes.
I love the pommel on this thing, the detailing with the little brushed aluminum squares really makes it stand out.

One weird thing... I ordered 2 of these sabers, 1 champion level 12w purple for my wife, and the Hero for myself, her's came with a silver covertech knob, and a black kill key, but mine came with a black covertech knob and a silver kill key... :huh:

Looking at the pictures on ETSY they are supposed to both be black...

It's not a problem, just thought it was odd. The wife likes the silver look, but i prefer the black, so we swapped kill keys, problem solved...

I have already pulled the SD card and started messing with the colors/sounds.... soooooo many possibilities...

Wow, just out of curiosity....How were you able to customize the parts? ASP aren't available yet right?

I'm really curious because I had 2 emails back and forth with customer service that said I could not ask for specific parts on the saber I wanted. (Venom with a different body section)

and If an Admin sees this, and something can be done, please let me know...


That saber is sweet though!

The Black Lotus was a limited run saber on Etsy; it was not a customized saber.

ASP preorders will be ending in the next few days (though I do not know when exactly) and all the Kickstarter/Indiegogo incentives will be in hand sometime in February. Once preorders are taken down, ASP will be unavailable for purchase until the official release.

If preorders are still up you can grab a preorder incentive on Indiegogo to get your ASP saber in February: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/adaptive-saber-parts-build-your-dream-saber-today#/

Congratz on those beautiful sabers!!

That design is one of my favorites from the etsy shop. The claws kinda remind me of a spider preparing for attack.

How sturdy are the claws? Would they get damaged in dueling?

The claws are anchored really well and aren't going to come off, but given the strength of SF's blades I could see maybe a crack or break if you hit it hard enough, but it would have to be really hard.

Has anyone ever told you that you look kind of like Alfred Molina?

Because you kind of do. :P
