Default AHHH help me decide!

I'm trying to decide between buying a 2nd Force FX Lightsaber or one of the new power batteries coming out soon.

So my first question, is if I get a Lightsaber, which one should I get? I have Vaders already.

Second question, if I get a lantern, what color should I get? I only know that of the new line, Green and Yellow have been announced, are they going to do a full spectrum?

And third question, which is cooler?

Also, Vote on the Poll!

Go for the lishtsaber! I have the Anikain Skywalker one from episode 3. I got it well cheap from a Woolworths a few years back. Only about 50!

But if I were you, I'd recommend getting a custom one, there's this website where you can order them, you can order pre designed pre assembled ones, or spate parts and design you own! Plus the colours are not limited to blue, green, red, and purple, you can get all sorts like pink, orange, yellow, turquoise, all sorts!

However if you want to go for a canon one, may I suggest episode 6 Luke, Count Doku, or episode 3 Obi-Wan.

Lightsaber. You could build a power battery yourself.

Lightsaber - if you end up making it a custom. Just err on the side of caution and be wary of "certain places".


If you're not going to get a custom blade...power battery.


*If you want more details on "certain places", send me a pm. I decided not to call anybody out.

Ultrasabers seems to be one of the main places of Custom sabers, theres also Parksabers,

Does anyone have any experience ordering from either of these companies?

Or are there other custom saber shops online?

Ah yeah, Ultra-sabers is the one I was thinking of, I'm always seeing adverts of them everywhere.

I've never had any experience with the order wise, but I have taken a look around their website and it seems fair enough. I was thinking about ordering one to build at one point, but I knew it would just be a one minute wonder.

So, I just spent the last little while, reading about Ultra-Sabers, and apparently they have really bad customer service, so now I'm iffy on what to do...


Hmmm.....

SHUT UP JHONNY AND GET BACK TO INSULTING IONFAN, I'LL JOIN YOU SHORTLY!

If Ultra Sabers have bad customer reviews, check out that other website. If that sucks too, just buy a canon lightsaber.

I prefer GL to Star Wars by miles, but you can make a Lantern from scratch from next to nothing, but you can't make a sound FX Lightsaber from scratch unless you buy all the parts from ultra sabers, and that'd cost tons. Think about it, why settle for one if you can have both?

He prefers to remain anonymous. If his talents are well known, then any ol' swinging dick wanting an old relic weapon will hound him.

Right.

So Lego_Man2323, Maybe you should go to this mystery man Johnny's talking about for your lightsaber.

I only have the Anakin episode three one. I love that one to bits though. It's my lightsaber for best.

I'll end up getting a Power Battery eventually, like a nice one for my shelf, but I do like the idea of having a durable lightsaber, the ForceFXs while they are cool, aren't for much more than look, but Ultrasabers at least seems to be super durable, so I'll take some time to consider my options.

Thank you everyone for your thoughts, it worked out well.

I went to S@ber Forge (misspelling and the space are intentional) for mine. Customer service was shoddy, and while I did get a quality saber out of it (it looks awesome) - it took so long for me to finally acquire it. 10 months. I'd almost given up on it and had Paypal reimburse me. And that's buying directly from his site.

I saw the Anakin (III) Luke (VI) and Single Maul Force FX Lightsabers at my comic shop today. 150 each. I got mine on special offer at a Woolworths a few years ago for about 50. Huge difference.

But the great ting about force FX sabers is that you can do with them then put them on shelf's. Plus I took a photo of me holding one, and for some reason on camera it looks just like the real thing with the white light in the middle with the (in my case blue) light around the edges of it. That's freaking awesome I thought to myself. So that'd be ideal for fan films if you ever wanted to make one.
