Here's the hilt I've planned and plotted for awhile, Qel-Droma's Sorrow, which came to life via the ASP Legacy tier:








More pics when I finally get it in my hot little hands...

... But while we're waiting some background. My gateway to Star Wars fandom was via the Tales of the Jedi , published by Dark Horse. On the saber side of things I really appreciated the TOTJ hilt aesthetic: layered, long, and spiky:





When I first caught wind of the Legacy tier I jumped on the opportunity to get a customized hilt (this was pre-custom shop, how time flies). I designed and ordered the claws via a custom aluminum shop and sent them off... Almost a year ago now. I brain stormed with Justin what would work and what wouldn't and 11ish months later it's gratifying to see the final product!

That's a sensational assembly. IIRC, you wrote once that Archon was your all-time favourite Hilt. Now with this offering, you have two, the second a hybrid that almost has a Transformers themed quality about it with the Custom designed Emitter claws and the default sectional shrouds. One very exciting looking Saber! :woohoo:

h2soy that's one bad ass Archon. I like the crystal chamber you have incorporated, and the claws are a great representation of the saber you were inspired by. I'm wondering if an Exar Kun sorcerer staff is part of your future wish list?

Awesome design. It looks like you got the most out of the Legacy tier opportunity. What electronics is it running?

And if it's not too much to ask, what were the "limits" when you were discussing the design with Justin? Some Legacy backers seemed like they just added a crystal chamber or did a powdercoating job on an existing hilt, while yours seems to have the works.

Can't remember. Something that does flash on clash.

The limits were what Justin/Daniel were capable of. There was a fair amount of back and forth that happened where we discussed the parameters of what was possible. The hilt isn't terribly complicated if you break it down. There's the base Archon with machined out slots for the claws, a trimmed shroud, the claws, some machining work for the crystal chamber, and the black chrome powdercoat.

When I seen it on the FB group, I was all like.. Man, That's Nice.

Then in the back of my mind, I was like.. Man, those claws remind me of a set h2 had made like nearly a year ago?

Boom.

Turns out to be your saber lol.

Is that a light blue or cyan color blade or something else entirely?

Amazing saber by the way, truly extraordinary.
