I’m fairly sure that every Star Wars fan either has, or dreams of having a high end lightsaber replica. The more accurate the better. Saber Forge can definitely help you out with that. In fact, they want to give you the ability to build and customize your own lightsaber.
To that end. Saber Forge has launched a Kickstarter for Adaptive Saber Parts:
Adaptive Saber Parts are an easy to use modular system that lets anyone construct their very own movie quality custom saber. We have lowered the barrier to entry, now you don’t need expensive machinery, soldering equipment, or years of prop building experience to make your very own custom saber, all you need is your imagination, and Adaptive Saber Parts.
With our initial release we will offer over a hundred unique metal parts in three different finishes putting millions of different design configurations at your fingertips, and every month we will release a new expansion set, making the possibilities endless.
In addition we will offer “plug and play” no solder electronics kits for upgrading your custom saber hilt to a dueling saber with a light up blade, or a fully functional hero level prop with lights, motion detection, and sound.
Considering building your own saber is part of the path to becoming a Jedi, I think this is pretty darn cool.
