At the new Bastion!

This is a bit of a custom job (tho not too much, really...)

And this will be a pretty generic review (as I'm no longer unbiased and don't trust myself to get a fully neutral review.... lol). Basically just some pictures.

Here we go!

Well. Saw some pictures of this one in the Upcoming Releases thread, but they were in low quality. This is quite a bit better. I'm very excited, we now have a review section for the new sabers, which means they'll be added to the lineup very soon, if they haven't already. Ima go check that.

Also it's fantastic and WOOOOHOOOO.

EDIT: Okay, they're not on the main site yet. Was there an overhaul in the works for the main site? Will these be added there when that happens? How many questions do I have? Lots.

EDIT 2: Oh, and there's now a Black Lotus review section in the Etsy Limited Releases spot. Hmmmmmm...
The above post may be subject to editing. A lot of editing.

Hi all,

WOW! WOW! WOW!
Is it me or do the emitter and windows on this fabulous saber look like the columns of the lift shaft of the Emperor's Chamber in ROTJ?
Imagine this saber in 12W+ Red!

I've been wondering when someone was going to drop us a peek at the long-awaited fourth new apprentice saber model.

Looks pretty slick, the horizontal windows are a very nice touch.

The child in the story was indeedy Bastian. Methinks there must be a joke in play that I do not understand, either. The word "bastion" just means some kind of defense, fortress, or fortification, which is a lovely name for a saber, eh? :

Heres a question. I LOVE the Bastion/Sentinel, are the covertech nobs on a saber like this attached when they are made or later? Im wonder because for a staff it would be nice to have the nob on the emitter end.

Gah. I just ordered two sabers, but I think I'm gonna have to get me some of that when it's released. My current saber stable is mint green, arctic blue, purple, indigo, and frost white...something about this guy is making me think blood orange or maybe yellow...

What "custom" did you have done to this saber?

I will say - this is an awesome looking saber.
