Bravo! One of my favorite video game saber designs, and you did a lot of very clean work on that.

Point!

Thanks for the kind words, folks.

The claws are every bit as long as they look. They're the Super Sith version, so you're looking at 7-8" in added length with the claws. The hilt as a whole is huge. It somewhat makes me hope that one day US will move the the MHS V2 standard, but it is what it is.

In all honesty, I never really intended to do this build. I was working on another project and had a major US-based LED retailer botch up an order twice. The end result was that I had an extra Tri-Cree XP-E2 laying around with no saber for it to live inside. That had to change. Since there really aren't any canonical orange sabers at this time, I wanted to go with something that at least seemed right for the orange that the amber and red dice make. The Raven fit the bill.

Quite the gorgeous piece of work there. And you're right, It looks amazing in Orange. True, I think any saber looks amazing in orange, but this one especially. I always use an orange blade on TFU2, so it works amazing. I know that this hilt is based more off of #1, but still cool. Nice job.

Funny that you mention the LED. That was the color I always used with that saber in TFU, so it really does look like what I always used in the game.

I keep coming back to this page to admire it, so have another point

Thanks! So because I used powder coat, free hand isn't really an option. To get the shapes, I used digital calipers to measure for spacing and my Silhouette Cameo to cut Oracal 631 vinyl for the masks.

Let me know if I shouldn't be posting this, but I put together a guide for my process: http://armsofilum.net/2017/06/04/powder-coating-saber-hilts-using-vinyl-stencils/
