Just for Fun. I have a list of sabers that occupy my "must have". I classify the hilts this way:

-- Con Worthy - This is a functional saber capable of light dueling that is highly accurate on the outside (If Cannon type saber).
-- Display piece - Functional display piece that is extremely accurate (If cannon style), not meant for much contact - can include things like crystal reveals.
-- Beater - Fully duel worthy hilt - accurate enough (if cannon type hilt) but mainly build for durability
-- Static display - A non functional (no Blade) hilt that is near 100% accurate - may include lights, and some sounds, but meant only for static display


What are yours?

1) Graflex - Con worthy - Built in TFA config
2) MPP - Con worthy/Display piece - In Progress ANH config
3) Obi-Wan ANH - Display piece - Built
4) Luke ROTJ Hero - Display piece - Hilt ordered
5) Kylo Ren - Con worthy - Hilt ordered
6) TFUSK - Display piece - In Progress (Scratch built from Flex 2.0)
7) Luke ROTJ v2 - Con worthy - parts ordered
8) Ahsoka "Fulcrum" - Con worthy - TBD
9) Dooku - Display piece - TBD
10) Graflex - display piece - TBD (Flex 2.0 that was slated for this was built as the con worthy TFA - Will be using a replica flash for this)

*opens "The List"*

Here we go ...
  1. Halberd style saber - Con Worthy / Display Piece - SF Templar with axe blades, pike extensions, and a Consular "pommel" - TBD
  2. "Pit Viper" staff concept - Con Worthy - ASP based on the Viper emitter, with other snake elements - TBD
  3. Satele Shan Staff - Display piece - most accurate I can find, preferably* - TBD
  4. GCS Badaxx - Beater - on wait list for customized version - "late 2018"
  5. GCS Vector - Beater - probably will order sometime next year, if not towards the end of this year
  6. HHCLS - OTS "Revanite" themed (black, red, brass) - Con Worthy - will be ordering through Indiegogo next week
    A custom saber by HHCLS
  7. Threshold RTI (IlluminatedSaber) - Con Worthy - commissioned the install last week
  8. Gladius Collection (Gladius, Xiphos x2) - Beater - have 2/3 done so far, second Xiphos empty will be going out to Jas-Ot for install sometime in the next few months... I just loved this hilt design in SWTOR, so had to have 3 different versions lol
  9. OxWorks Ven Zallow - Con Worthy - he's doing a run in a few months... hope to get in on it
  10. ANH Collection (Luke, Obi, Vader) - Static Display - thinking Roman Props for these - TBD

Okay so some of those were technically multiple sabers, but they go together so I say they count as one. :silly:

*While the GrandMaster is nice, the 12mm AV switch holes bother me for accuracy.

I would have to say at this point I'm down to just 1 saber I want, That would be a Count Dooku, That being my no.1

I prefer my sabers all be solid and duel worthy, but I do have a couple shelf queens, my graflex and K4 are.

1. Dooku (TBD)
2. Graflex TFA
3. Clean K4
4. Hybrid ANH/ESB MPP (I like my clamp lever)
5. Darth Maul full staff
6. The monarch
7. Prodigal Son v2 edition (in progress)
8. Redeemer
9. The Grandmaster
10. Weathered Jade Fire
11. Bane
12. Vanquish
13. My ASP Fury, with hero pnp/rumble custom switch section.
And the other 10 or so sabers I have

I think of SF current line up I don't have is the Phoenix, which I do like and want, if they have another Sale when they are 75.00. I'll buy me a empty.

Hm, must haves. Always a fun topic. I've been able to cross a couple off my list (Graflex in original configuration and Qui-Gon sabers) but I'm always after more. Most of my sabers are of the more "generic" variety, but I'd love to have these more "official" hilts:

1. Vader MPP - I prefer the original configuration from A New Hope.
2. KOTOR saber - I may get a Fallen at some point to make this happen.
3. SWTOR saber - I plan to get a Gladius for this one.
4. Obi-Wan prequel hilt - high on my list, I have a few on my radar.
5. Obi-Wan OT hilt - also high on my list, I like the Redeemer, though I may go with a kit build.
6. Luke Skywalker ROTJ - probably the Prodigal Son.
7. Ki-Adi-Mundi saber - I found one earlier and it made my day.
8. Kitt Fisto saber - don't have a line on one yet.
9. Mac Windu saber - I bought one I was unhappy with, I'd like to get a better one.
10. More unique/"generic" designs - a little vague, but I actually like the less specific hilts, that look more generic. I also like modding hilts to make them more personal.

Anyway, that's what I have. :)

I already own 7 of my top 10, but I'm not actually planning on owning 10 hilts. Right now my real "must haves" pan out at about 8.

My personal standard is that they all be con worthy, though two of them are probably best kept as display pieces.

1. ASP Martyr
2. ASP Wayward
3. ASP [Unnamed]
4. Etched Grandmaster Staff
5. Graflex, personal configuration
6. MPP 2.0
7. ASP Lost Hope
8. Undetermined ASP crossguard design
9. Undetermined ASP curved hilt design
10. Luke V2

Just the last three that I still need to get.

Hi all,

Well I have the saber that "Called to me" from SF's catalogue. As far as other hilts go these are all dreams as my bank balance won't allow any more purchases, but here goes anyway...

1) Qui-Gon Jinn (deep groove model)
2) Luke ROTJ
3) Graflex ANH
40 OWK ANH (I saw this beauty 2 days ago, isn't available...yet)
5) Ahsoka Tano Rebels pair (as above not available yet and also non SF)

And finally I suppose my own build, Tyeth's First which won Knytiri's ASP Design Contest



with my own custom LED/Optics/blade (Haven't done any electrical installs since I built lighting rigs for the theatre...shouldn't be too much difference though, just size and numbers!)
That's it but if any of you are feeling benevolent and want to "donate" any.... :lol:

I think Thomas originally wanted to call that bottom 3-d render The Talon (which would have been quite fitting), but they used that on one of the newer model Apprentice sabers. We are still not sure if either the Sovereign, or The Talon designs will see the light of day anytime soon, but the Bane 2 is supposed to be getting closer.

I've owned the majority of my Top 10 at one point and sold every one of them. I now have 2 sabers in process which are part of my top 10 list, and a 3rd which was pre-ordered back in January I still wait on. I also have an empty Phoenix which I'm modifying just for fun.

1. Ahsoka Rebels
2. Graflex (replica from TGS on pre-order since January and will be doing an ANH config on it. Used to own the 2.0 in ESB/TFA config)
3. MPP (just sent off my 2.0 for install the other week. Getting the ESB config but prefer the ANH)
4. Luke v2 (my Solo's Hold v2 is currently in process)
5. Maul Staff (once owned the SF Mauler fully installed with accent LEDs and an empty weathered DM1)
6. Dooku
7. Yoda (had a converted MR)
8. Windu
9. Kenobi ROTS (once owned a 2nd gen Redeemer that I modified to look like the ANH version. Also owned an empty Romans Inception)
10. Undecided. I have a couple in mind or perhaps a 1 off custom for 'my' character.

blade socket it very shallow once the led and lens are installed, so not much rention on the blade for heavy contact. This is how I did the K4s I have built.

I can't say I have a top 10 (yet) but I do have a top 3 for the moment.

3) the Heretic I bought in June which will hopefully arrive soon.
2) Starkiller clone's lightsabers (not the Reliant looking one but rather this one: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Starkiller%27s_lightsabers)
1) Laser-etched Imperial knight

I'm a simple man.

I have to update my list because thanks to Ovrcast I am the proud owner of a Monarch hero

So here goes, these are sabers I might actually fork out for someday, there are some awesome sabers out there to drool over, like some from solo's hold, but I could never justify dropping that much coin on a lightsaber.

1) Genesis Badaxx (I may even get him to do a custom for me I have dreamed of a saber karambit for years)

2) Graflex TFA (want to build one on my own)

3) MPP Vader (either my on build or the new one SF just announced, wicked cool)

4)Bane 2.0

5) Reliant Variant/ TFU2 saber

6)Grandmaster staff etched

7) Slim Kota

8) Dooku

9) SF Relic

10) Insert any number of ASP designs I play around with.

Sabers are going to be put on the back burner for me for awhile as I save up to pursue another of my hobbies; gun smithing. I'm working on a ground up build for a pair of custom 1911's and if you know guns you know that's not a cheap project.
