First, my story(skip if this bores you).

I first found out about these LED lightsabers probably about 5 or 6 years ago, but even though I came close to ordering one, filling out everything and then canceling at the last step, I never went through it it. My biggest problem was trusting that something this expensive could travel all the way to Norway safely.

Then of course The Force Awakens happened, and all my fascinations about lightsabers awoke again as well, just like when I was a kid seeing Luke ignite his father's saber for the first time.
I decided on SaberForge due to them having the coolest looking hilts and good reviews. Looking at the main site I went "hmm ooh the Fury looks awesome. How about these... wait, Fury! But that one looks cool - NO! FURY!". It had chosen me.

Day 1 I ordered it and immediately felt sick about spending this much money on something I had never seen in person.
Day 2 I woke up feeling excited that I finally went through with it!
Day 3 was spent looking at youtube videos and lurking this forum
Day 4 and I started thinking "This might just be the first of many. Oh man, I'm probably going to get all the movie colors, aren't I?"

That's a worry for another day though.

The shipping went fine. Watching the tracking was killing me though. Portland and no update for 6 days. San Francisco and then another 6 days with no updates. Then Norway, and the next day it was at the city where I live and ready to get picked up at the post office later the same day. Just wow. Basically waiting, starting to worry then BAM it's here!
Ordered December 26th, in my hands at March 17th. The Toblerone contained everything I expected, Hilt, 37" blade, EU charger. I also asked to have the activation button light match the blade, which it does.

So to the saber itself

The hilt was heavier than I expected, I mean it's not that heavy but it feels just right. I guess I was expecting it to feel lighter due to everyone commenting on how light it felt. I was also worried it would be too small, but those worries disappeared as soon as I saw it. Gripping the saber feels great, and I have no problems swinging it around with either one or two hands. The balance point for spins isn't ideal with the 37" blade, of course, but I can't do spins anyways. Don't know how and might not be able to, at least with my right hand since I have some issues with my wrist.

SO bright! I was probably staring at the blade a bit too much, and it made my vision all weird. It's very evenly lit up to the tip.

When I first unpacked the hilt, I remembered everyone mentioning how the top points were very sharp. So I touched it and thought it's fine. Whatever. Didn't take long of me messing around with the saber to have it snag my t-shirt and make a small hole. Luckily, it was an old shirt but I'll be way more careful from now on!

All in all though, the Fury is just perfect. Everything I hoped for and more!

Congrats on your saber! Great to see another weathered hilt and that red looks so bright. I have a red LED with QC coming my way at some point and I can't wait to see it in person. I'm sure you're excited to finally go out and play with your Fury. You've waited long enough, go have fun.

Kajo, Congratulations with successful delivery of your Fury, all the way to Hoth Norway. No skipping on the read, IMO the backstory expressed through words shares your thought process with us infinitely more than the images (still important) themselves and enables a shared appreciation to finally wielding it. I was actually hopeful for a complete day-day diarised reading of your emotive state from Dec 26 to Mar 17. The weathered Finish is superb and the Red LED is such an obvious choice. With taking the time to write your Review and sharing,Thank You.

This describes exactly the process that led me to get a Venomous Fury. I promise, I'll post a review! ...eventually. Congrats on the saber, looks fantastic. I feel like it's the evil twin of something, even if I don't know what.
The above post may be subject to editing. A lot of editing.

Super busy days at work and a cabin trip this weekend, so I haven't gotten back to you all(or my saber) until now. I actually brought the saber with me to work the next day to show it off to a select few people. The response was great. A lot of envy. :lol:

Thanks for all the great replies!

Final post in my topic, as there are a few things I forgot to mention.

It is a 12W+, of course.

It sounds great! And it's loud, especially the blade on/off sounds and the menu beeps. I always keep it on high, even though the neighbors can probably hear me.

And lastly, I ordered the saber with quick connects because why not. This saber is staying red, but if an opportunity comes to order an even better one I'll be prepared for it.
I finally got the courage to check if they actually gave me the quick connects that I ordered. I had to shake it for quite a while before it finally got to the point where I could pull it out. The QCs were there so I put the LED back inside, which was nerve-racking... especially when I had to carefully push with the blade plug the last bit. Not doing that again unless I have to!
