Hello Jedi. How nice of you to drop in.

I think changing colors using quick disconnects may not be an option if you have FoC.  The FoC uses an RGB led, not a Seoul or Luxeon.  So the LED is "tuned" to the color  that you selected with the FoC triggering a different combination of the three colors (probably by re-directing the voltage in a different combination).  It may be possible, I suppose, to get another RGB LED that is tuned to a different color with a different FoC color, but this  would have to be an MLS that has been specially prepared.  We haven't heard yet (and this is all very new) whether that will be offered.

FWIW, I'm willing to give up quick disconnects for FOC, though with two MLS units on the way, and only one saber at the moment with QD, it would be a shame for that to be the only saber I could use them in.

I recently purchased three Obsidian sabers, and I would've loved this option had it been available a month ago. Can I mail them in for this upgrade?

While ordering I was going to order a spare MLS and found out that they have added a FOC pull-down window to it, which answers my question.  Now hopfully all I have to do is order a FOC capable MLS for my other sound sabers.

I'm loving the FoC idea a lot! Too bad I do not have an RGB. When I get an RGB, I'm soooo getting this!

I have never been a fan of pulsating blades though, the ligtsabers in Star Wars pulsated very little if they did at all. I find led sabers that pulsate, do not pulsate the subtle way that they did in SW, but are way more, "out there" if you will.

Is it possible to get the FoC, without the pulsating blade?

Bye Darth S whoever you were Wink    Now back to retyping my answer for Stuxnet:  I checked with Deep about sending in sabers to make them FOC capable (cause I wanted some done);  I was told that it could be done, but they had to gut and rebuild the insides, changing out the sound board for a new one, and putting in a new and  more expensive MLS unit.  Deep gave me a very, very, very rough price quote, but I will not mention it because It was just that, a rough price quote, which in my opinion only covered parts, and no labor or shipping.

Will I get some redone...it's hard to say at this time.  Will see what my Overlord looks like with FOC.

Thanks for the info Tom. Would you mind PMing me that very, very, very rough price quote, just so I have a very, very, very rough sense of what it might cost me?  Wink

I can't wait to read your Overlord FOC review! 

Even if you won't give a full-on price quote, would you be willing to share a rough % of new sabre (with Obsidian and FOC added in) cost?  (my guess based on the obsidian and FOC MLS costs plus some labour would be about half...)

peace,

Kannik

I'm getting one too, but I'm a bit confused by the ordering process, hoping one of you fine folks can clears a few things up.

I want Sentinel Yellow with White FoC. So when ordering, do I ask for Arctic Blue as the main and RGB as the FoC, noting the actual color choices in the annotation? Do I have that right? Or is it Arctic Blue and White as the FoC? I'm a bit confused >.< Also, this does come with the quick disconnect MLS option, yes? And lastly, Emory posted that the "forum colors" were an extra $5, so am I adding that on top of the Arctic blue $5 upcharge? And if so, how?

Thanks.

@ Kannik:    Once I get the overlord and see it myself I will decide if I want to get some others converted.  I would suggest emailing Deep to coordinate converting them for you at info@ultrasabers.com, he may need other info that he didn't provide me.    Below is the excerpt from the email that Deep sent me about converting the saber to FOC capable.

You can, but the task of making it FoC capable isn't easy. We'd have to

> >

@ Stuxnet:  For the main color you would pic one of the colors that cost $5.00 more than the others (VA, Arctic Blue, or Sunrider's Destiny).  When you get to the Flash on Clash box click on the Silver color.  The flash on clash is a special MLS unit.  If you would ever want to change the color of main color or flash color you would need to click on the quick disconnect box for "sure add them".  Once you are ready to check out you would go to the Order Comments box and state something like:  I would like the blade color to be Sentinel Yellow with Silver FOC.

This should take care of it.  Note:  A SY overlord with sound and Red AV switch, FOC Silver, quick disconnects, li-on setup, nickle finish, mid grade blade and a hex wrench is 311.00.

Excellent, thanks a tonne for the info.  Given what Deep says if I choose to get FoC I'll simply order more sabres.  A collection starts when you have two, right?  Wink

peace,

Kannik
(though it would be two of the same to start -- gotta get my fave in FoC before I start ordering more... like maybe that Bellicose, or a dark shock, or... and then add more MLS units... -grins- )

Being new here, I have some quick questions:  What does BH stand for and can someone provide pictures of Pyrestone and BH?  I am also assuming that SY stands for Sentinel Yellow.  Thanks.  JJ

BH stands for Bane's Heart, it is a more reddish Violet Amethyst, some have described it as a reg magenta, or even a pinkish Violet.
Pyrestone Orange (to me) is a more darker, evil looking Fire Orange

Here's one for Bane's Heart
http://www.saberforum.com/index.php?topic=3485.0

On page 16 of the below topic you will find some pics with the colors.  Keep in mind there are very few pics that will actually capture the exact color.

Consular Green with blue flash would look good. Thats what I'm doing for my Consular saber.

Definently do a video review of it if you can Smiley    I would like to see it cause it may change my opinion.   That's what we should do start a new thread "Different Blade Colors with FOC".  This would give someone a visual as to the different color combinations.
