This is primarily an attempt to more clearly demonstrate the difference in color between the SaberForge Yellow and SaberForge Amber LED options. Plus it's an opportunity to show off my Amber Exhalted and my Yellow Kit Fisto conversion ;)

Both look great and are incredibly bright. I was torn between deciding on Amber or the blood orange I went with the blood orange. Can't wait to get it.
All ways in black or white. Why not grey

I haven't seen many pics of the blood orange. Be sure to post some nice photos when you get it! Which hilt did you get?

I love them both, but I do have a slight preference for the amber :) so yes, you did choose well!

I have a blood orange on the way, so when it comes in I'll do a comparison of the amber and blood orange, tho the Amber I have is only a 6W while the Blood Orange is going to be a 12W. B)

Thx for making this thread! Maybe someday we can do a compilation thread of side by side comparisons of the similar LED colors! :D

I can't decide if I want yellow or amber for my next one... gawd... decisions...

I think I've heard some people say that Amber looks a lot more orange in person than it does on camera, is that true? The way the Amber looks in these pics is pretty much what I'd like to see in real life. Just wondering how true these photos are to real life.

The Amber is definitely an orange. Here's a good picture of what the actual blade color looks like in real life:




The orange color near the left end of the blade is what the actual color is without all the camera flares and whatnot.

Again I'm new to Sabers, so what color are available? I really would like to have a yellow blade because I believe if I would have a character it would be in the form of a Jedi sentinel. I believe that my life better simulates that aspect.

I haven't seen a yellow option, that's why I ask...

I also really like the weathered options.....To me the simple looking lightsaber s grab my attention more so.

In such a color-comparison I've been waiting a long time. Thank you, Mario. First, I always wanted an amber LED, but now I'm in yellow. And I must say, this decision was the right one. Also for my costume planning a yellow blade fits better than the amber.
May the Force be with You!

I am definitely going to be pushing myself to get something (stunt staff?? :) ) in yellow.

I would like to see a line-up of white, yellow, amber, blood orange and red all in one shot!

SaberForge doubled their selection of colors recently. Just select one of the Elite Sabers from the left hand menu on their website and configure a Warrior, Champion, or Hero saber, then you can see the full list of available colors from the drop down menu, as well as an embedded video at the bottom of the page showcasing all their new colors.

The yellow / oranges are by far my favorite Saber colors.

I currently have a 12 watt SF Gladius in Yellow - Its my favorite shade about an hour after a new charge

A Pyrestone Orange - US Bellicose - I do really like the color of this blade but the mixing is slightly off so I get a green tint to it sometimes (I have had to turn that in twice now to US to get it fixed)

I also own a US DSI with the color changing driver that I cannot think of the name right now... that usually is in an Amber type orange.

My next purchase will be a Venom - 12 Watt Amber

I'm looking to buy my first lightsaber and I'm having trouble deciding between 12w red or 12w amber. I prefer red but amber looks good too. Is amber brighter than red? What are y'all's opinions on red vs amber?

Brightness when referring to the same wattage output is usually a preference of the users eye.

Amber will probably come off brighter as it is a lighter shade color as red is a darker shade. Like white is going to come off as brighter even though a navy blue in the same wattage is brighter.

When referring to color temperature - Red is technically the "hottest color" yellow, then shades of light orange to darker red orange then to complete red scale are the hottest of the color temperature scale.

In my experience Amber will photograph better than red because most cameras cannot deal with balancing a red tone, not to mention a very hot red like a 12 watt red.

Go with what you like, the "brightness" is relative to your own vision.

Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and just received my first lightsaber today. It's a warrior level Gladius in amber. It is definitely a shade of orange which is what I wanted. The hilt is practically perfect and I am stoked! I'm at work right now, but here are a few quick pics from my phone.
