So there I am just kickin' it about to pass out on the couch for nap after the bong rips and beers I had for breakfast when I hear an unexpected knock at my door. So I answer and there's the mail man holding a toblerone.
"Weird, I wasn't expecting anything today."
So I open it up and there it is. The Mauler. A 12w+ Red Crimson Champ. It came in 2 halves much like Maul himself after a duel with Kenobi so I removed the pommels and attached the coupler which came with adjusting shims already installed so when threaded on all the greeblies line up.

So without further adieu…




What? Is that a tactile switch as seen on the Vigilant? Ya Bro, low pro.



Wait!? Are those accent LEDs that light up when kill key is removed? Shit ya, homie! Recognize.



At last we will show the Jedi how awesome we are. At least will have our cake? What?

26"
With both blades attached it's nearly 6' long.

Thanks man.

Kind of a custom shop.
I bought it as an empty from Jordan Moll. Sent it to SF for the champ upgrade, asked Justin for the tactile switches and paid extra for the accent lights.
So it was half an RMA upgrade and half hey man can you do this for me?

Hah yaaaa.
I work a shift schedule and I'm coming off of nights. So it was more equivalent to a friday night compared to a monday morning. ;)

Man, you'll be totally pleased when you get it.

I was just in a different situation as it was an RMA return to add sound and the 12w+ leds, so instead of a prototypical order from Etsy I was able to ask if it was possible to install first and then continued to pay separately for the extra accent LEDs to be installed and wired in.

For the low-pro tactile switch, it comes down to the fact that every saber requires a switch, so they will usually install what you ask for if they have stock to accommodate any small requests such as that in terms of colour or design. They're also good at accommodating specific blade plug, kill key or covertech knob finishes if you request certain ones in your order comments. I find it's in the small details for how it appeals to an individual so it's really good of them nail it like that.

I guess being a n00b I didn't realize you could request all that. Good to know.

I ordered mine through Etsy on 10/31/15 and haven't received any news on it. It has only been 2 and a half weeks though.

Give yourself another 4-6 weeks and be patient.
I just checked thru my emails and I had this one on the go since the beginning of October.

I suppose what makes things easier is that I own other sabers that can distract me while I wait for another to arrive. The first wait is usually most the difficult.
