There were two pretty good damage spots on the box .. the one I shared was the worst of the two and my photo angle wasnt the best .. but looking at it now .. the box is kind of banana shaped.... but to answer your question...

Actually yeah.. the bubble wrap is was completely "popped" along that side of the hilt before I even unwrapped it .. maybe its just me but you can kind of see the bubble wrap "dented" in the spot on the saber right where the mark is (arrow)... and you can see a lot of the bubbles busted on that side... I just have lots of bubble wrap laying about since I re use it for my own shipping needs and cant 100% say today which one was wrapped around the Lost Gray..



when you see the full size of this image .. you can see many places in the bubble wrap ripped / jabbed all along the axis of that spot ..

Either way  Im not going to lose my mind over it -- they are going to take care of it for me at no cost to me .. my only loss is not having it for the Ep8 premiere event ... but its not like I dont have a few other choices available to me.. lol -- but this is my first diamond saber.. soooooo it's the "fancy" one lmao...
That does indeed suck. Maybe you can........drag your feet in shipping it back till after the movie? Roll Eyes Grin

It's possible that the damage was incurred during shipping, but (a) that would have been a helluva hit, and (b) I would have expected a lot more damage to the box in order to produce a gouge like that. I might also suspect that the damage occurred after wrapping but before boxing. I can't imagine that whoever assembled the saber would have done so with that kind of flaw.

What else is in that roll?

Nothing but the Lost Gray.. and you can definitely tell the bubble wrap is lopsided / squished on the damaged side...
but naah I would rather get it fixed .. not like I dont have a few others to choose from.. And since Im doing the "generic jedi" outfit I think the Archon will work well.. And the Lost Gray doesnt seem right to carry until I have the Fulcrum to go with it ....

Missed that. Why not do the Flex instead for movie night?

Also, before sending it back (you'll want to confirm) but you might save on shipping by taking the blade off.

Yep that was their directive to remove the blade.. its already on its way back... and I just looked Fulcrum is the "deal of the day" saber .... And they have the Christmas raffle up .. >< But that guarantees any saber I order and use as a raffle entry .. will not be here until the new year ... such cruelty... gaaah

Seeing as I also ordered a Lost Gray, these recent posts terrify me.

My saber is suppose to arrive sometime tomorrow, less than 24 hours. It's been one of the longest 9 days in recent memory.

Wonder if I can use my fear and anxiety to apply force speed it to me faster.

Probably not, but it will help you raze FedEx when it comes to light that they lost it.

It's finally here! FedEx has not disappointed me and thus will not be Force Choked into oblivion.

Will post pics (once I learn how to do that) and will be doing a review video in the next few days.

Thankfully no gouges on the hilt, though the pommel area looks right at the bottom has a few scratches when it was machined but no one will notice unless I screw off the default pommel.

11/10 would buy again.

Currently thinking of what to call it, Lost Gray is nice but it's mine now and doesn't look like the default.

I would go through imgur. It's so simple even I could figure it out. Then just insert the link with the image tool (the 2nd button on the bottom row. )

Yes I will have to agree with Darth Logos, imgur works great and even I could figure it out -- pretty much drag and drop to their site once you set up your free account and it even makes the links for you to just copy and paste into your post.

I gave in to the temptation, went ahead and ordered a Diamond Fulcrum to go with my Lost Gray -- and also will have to try and learn patience once again as that order was a winter raffle entry order.. so it wont be here for a while....

I finally placed my first order for a saber and after all the reviews I was confident placing it with ultrasabers.  I'm eagerly awaiting my Manticore (Diamond) in Emerald Green, my Electrum Wind (Diamond) in Fire Orange and my $200 Mystery Box!  Can't wait to bring them to the office when we break from work early to see the new SW movie!
