Anodizing isn't just an option, like LED color or blade type, it's a whole different process.  The preparation and anodize bath costs hundreds, so the only way to do it cost effectively is to anodize many hilts at once.  Putting the hilts back in the lathe to cut rings and such further adds to the cost.  At that point, anodizing isn't an "option" anymore, it really does make a different saber, which is why those become special edition sabers.

What does anyone think about engravings or is that to far? I think that would be beast for an extra cost to have something engraved on the hilt anyone agree, course this could be done as DIY but i would screw it up bad Grin

I'm game for engravings.  Aurebresh decals would be cool, too.

An engraving service would be (rare moment of acceptance of prequels) wizard! Probably not cheap, but SO worth extra money to have something put on there.

Engraving would be pretty cool.

I was just looking around the old forums and saw some brass hilts, and as a result I really want a brass hilt. So I would LOVE to have US produce a brass hilt again.

I've GOT a sentinal yellow, and it's awesome- I just need to upload the pics!
I would love to see that deep, rich orange that my wraith sabers were made with offered as a pick-able option.
I also love the gold anodizing on the shock LE, and would love to see other sabers with it.

Not sure about the tapered blade.  It'd either be so infinitesimal that you wouldn't be able to see it, or your blades would be shorter and sharp.  Plus, Ultra doesn't make the blades, so we can't do much about that.

I think a custom coupler would be very nice too, just think if you could make a battle staff out of a prophecy and a  Liberator, Etc, etc? What ya'll think?

Has anyone looked into anodized titanium?  It may be a bit difficult to work with and perhaps expensive, but it would create a plethora of coloring options for LE sabers.

I suggest a smaller lightsaber with sound. A saber around (9 to 8 inches in length). For kids who would like the sound, also for individuals who would like to have a Lightsaber shoto. For example ahsoka's new yellow shoto saber.

. . . And I also would like to see a yellow added to the color options. Thanks
