Ordered my Heretic Warrior saber May 9 2017, Still waiting, and no shipment notification yet.

I have noticed as of recently they are Pre-Order now, but wasn’t when I ordered it.

I just ordered an Initiate tier Acolyte hilt from the Etsy shop. It will be interesting to see how quick that ships, since those are supposed to be ready to ship and they don't have to customize it. I was able to use the coupon code from the main site, which made me super happy. :woohoo:

Four days. I ordered Thursday, it is in my possession. I'm blown away by that speed. I live in southwestern Ohio, and this shipped Friday. So, this thing trekked 3/4 of the way across the country over the weekend. Anyway, here is my first (received) SaberForge saber:

I'm dang impressed, SaberForge. Not only did it get here fast, but this thing is a real beauty. I'll do a full review after I build the saber. It may be a few weeks, I ordered a red button momentary 12mm AV switch on Ebay and it's on its way from Hong Kong. It's estimating the 13th to the 31st before it arrives. Plus, I still need to get a sound board, speaker, etc. I have LEDs galore, but I need other stuff. I'll probably do either a NBV4 or a Pico on this one. I've used both the NBV3 and Pico in the past, so I know I like both boards and I know how to work with them. If I do the NB, I'll probably use this GGW Tri Cree I have, I bought it for another saber but it didn't work out. (technical issue with how the hilt is constructed and the heat sink and optic I was trying to use) I'll wire up the two greens for my main and the white for FOC. Of course, if I do the Pico, it's RGB all the way. I have a few RGBW Crees for that purpose. B)

Hi guys!

I'm really excited about my first ever SF purchase and I'm hoping that I am posting this in the right place!
I had thought that I would see a lot more members with crystal variants - it seems to be a niche group. I'm happy with that.
I picked the options Hero, long blade, polish and coat, vibration, belt clip and warranty.
Imagine my surprise when I decided to read the FAQ. on this forum ten minutes AFTER ordering with the hopes of beating up my friends with it to read that it's going to have to be a shelf queen. Eek!
I didn't see anything to the contrary when I researched (watched lots of YouTube ) o hopefully a few slaps with it here and there will be fine :)

I'm really interested to hear use how delicate these sabres are from people who already own one.

I'm into week 8 of my wait for my Prodigy. It hasn't been bad, though. Working full time keeps me busy, plus I have other stuff to do, like play SWTOR, in my down time. Though, as the initial estimate was 6 weeks, I did contact customer service on Wednesday. I got a prompt response yesterday and the customer service representative (India) informed me of an issue with the parts and that my saber is in the installation queue. So, kudos to Saber Forge for awesome customer service, as well as for not wanting to send out a sub-par saber. Hopefully, my saber will ship in the next couple weeks. B)

I know that you're anxious for this one. Way to keep it in check the best you can SFD. :)

I've only just ordered a Gladius, and now the Oracle is calling to me...lol

Hooked - just like that. :P

Yeah, I'm anxious but also chill about it. I want them to get it right, so I'm willing to wait. You know what can happen if you rush sabers.

Congrats on that Gladius order, bro. I know you've been wanting one. Me too, but the funds aren't currently with me. Did you order an Initiate tier or does it have electronics?

Initiate tier for this one. I'll have to get a SF LED soon though. :)

Thanks BTW...I'm pretty anxious myself. :P

Boy... don't even get me started! :whistle:

I ordered my Vanquish about 5 days ago, and from the rough completion time I was given from Customer Service with the options that I chose I'm looking around mid October by the time it gets to me here in Australia.

Until then I'm just going to keep waiting on The Count to appear on the store, and I have several other sabers on order from various places, some complete, some to build with some components also on the way. Plenty to keep my mind distracted from the wait :P

I'm 2 weeks into my wait for an empty 12" Mk3 Ronin. Can't wait to get that thing in Still deciding whether or not I want to get it powdercoated or leave it as it is. Also got an empty Descent coming in as well.

I recently got in a custom saber from a man named Bryon Aspenlieder, called the Blue Acid. It's damn awesome.



KIT Sabers is also working on a custom lightsaber for me as well. It's got a very unorthodox shape. Takes inspiration from Chinese swords.



Lastly, I'm waiting on a commission from Jevaho Creations. It's an Imperial Knight/ Rahm Kota mash up. No progress pictures on it yet unfortunately.

I think that's it, but I don't even know. I can't keep track of all my purchases anymore...

Torch in this case means flashlight, for those not familiar with the term...

Ya nut. :P

That's in a pretty short time as well, correct? Oh, to have your problems...lol

It's going to be worth the wait when you finally get that. The detail on those is insanely awesome. :D

Yes, flashlight sorry. That's built now. Those two sabers turned up today. So that one is off to work in a few hours.

All 6 were purchased within 2 weeks of each other lol and when all have arrived (as long as I've bought no more in the wait time) that will be 21 in total in the house. But I'll probably buy another one in a couple of days because there is a few I'm looking at. And then whenever The Count is available I'll order that too... so who knows when it will stop :silly: :side: :cheer:
