Hey. I just got a bonus from work and decided I would get a Count, because that's my favorite lightsaber and Dooku is a boss (when is Christopher Lee not?). When looking in the colors for blades, I only saw one red. However, when selecting a color in the purchase option, it lists Red, Medium Red, Deep Red and Blood Orange.

Can anyone show me examples of these different reds so I can make up my mind and know what I'm buying? I want it to be as movie/show accurate as possible.

Also, when selecting a tier, I was gonna go with Veteran. However, there are two Veteran options. One says Import 3 fonts and the other says USA and 2 fonts with voice menu. What are the different fonts for each and are they region exclusive?


Thanks in advance for the help. God bless.

I would recommend the deep red.
I went with standard red and then after some investigation realised deep red drops any hint of orange from the colour.
It’s going to lose a couple of lumen, but that colour is perfect.

I vote deep red as well. It's really a true red. Don't trust photos. They sometimes make it look kind of pinkish. In person, it is a like the color of a stoplight. From what other people have said, the other reds tend to have a little orange hue in person, but I haven't seen any of the others myself to confirm. While deep red isn't as bright as the others, it's still bright enough to impress you when you turn it on!

They both have Viridian and Crimson from the old Sabercore 2.0 board, and the Import has "Gunmetal". You can hear them all in the intro video HERE.

I just ordered the Count and was on the fence on whether to get red or deep red. I saw videos on YouTube with both, and didn’t think there was much different between them, especially when cameras and visual quality varies between glare and my screens settings. This topic was started less than a day ago, and I ordered on the 18 (of January), so I guess I scored by choosing the deep red! Thanks for the pictures, it really helps.

I personally will get the Veteran Import on my Count because the 3 fonts appeal to me a lot

I do a "deep" red or "medium" red on all my personal "red" bladed sabers.

Which hue you want depends on whether you want a truer red in pics, or in person.

Medium red gives you a "truer" red in pics, Deep Red gives you a slight pinkish hue in pics and looks more like Vader's ESB blade. In person, Deep red is going to be more like the PT red sabers, and medium red will have a hint of orange, more like Vader in ROTJ when he fights Luke.

Yup, this^^^

And if you want ESB Vader's slightly pinkish crimson blade in-person.. you want to mix Red with a teeny tiny itty bitty bit of Royal Blue. Not entirely sure of NEC mix values (since Hero tier would be the only way to do with this with stock SF) but with Plecter I use 1023 Red and 15 Royal Blue. I'd imagine with NEC it'd be like 255 Red and 3 or 4 Blue.

My red led saber arrived today.
Reinforced my wish that I had chosen deep red. It’s about as orange as red can get :(
