So, I haven't posted in this thread for a while, mostly because there was a lot of nonsense for a while here and I just didn't want to get involved.

That said, I have to ask - wouldn't a Bastilla saber just be 2 Grand Masters coupled together?
On the subject of the Grand Master, I would like for it to be offered with a plain black body w/o the etching, or even polished aluminum.
I would still love to see an Obi-Wan Ep III/IV inspired hilt design.
I would like to see a greater variety of parts available.
This could probably be considered above, but I especially would like to see the  LED Module/MLS Unit offered WITHOUT the LED - just the body, Heatsink and lens.

finally, I've kept my mouth shut on this one for a while, but now that TCSS is offering them, it's time for Ultrasabers to get on board. Parabolic blade tips.

The round tips are okay, the pointed are so-so. the Parabolic blade tips. are awesome.

WHAT THERION SAID! Funny thing is, Satele was originally my suggestion at the same time as Bastila, but had more popularity at the time </3 Bastila Shan is the Great Grandmother (by 300 years) of Satele. While she makes an appearance in the Old Republic MMO, Bastila Shan is from the Knights of the Old Republic games released in the early 2000s. She's the main protagonist female companion, and the romance option if you play the game through as male. She was one of the few Jedi to be gifted in the art of Battle Meditation (a powerful technique with the ability to influence entire armies at a time, inspiring confidence and courage in allies while instilling fear and doubt upon the enemy; this being said, it was sort of a mass psychological warfare technique), which was a large part of why she was chosen to lead the strike team to capture Darth Revan while still only holding the rank of padawan herself. Whichever side you end up choosing in the final battle, the presence or absence of Bastila's battle meditation actually determines the winner of the space battle against the Star Forge.

Bastila does wield a staff similarly to Satele, but the design is quite different and rather plain, with the most distinguishable feature being its signature two-pronged emitters (something which the only mainstream "other guy" to make an inspired hilt misses completely, and so it frankly looks nothing like her saber as a result Tongue ).

..................never going to happen, but what about this:

Removable (swappable)  MHS compatible sectioned hilts. My thought was, why not have a threaded sectioned body that can be unscrewed just below where the activation button is? Example: Take a Graflex lightsaber and be able to put an archon lower hilt part (the section below the grenade style upper grip). That way, the electronics stays with the switch and upper part of the hilt, but the lower section can be swapped between lightsabers? If the lower section of the hilt is always the same length, it would be easily swappable.

The reaper hilt already can do this, but has the threaded part in the lower half of the hilt, trapping the speaker and sound card so it can't be removed without disconnecting the sound board/speaker assembly.  I would instead have the threaded part in the upper half of the hilt just under the switch area. This would make the AV switch wiring easily accessible for customization/repair.

I would show what I am talking about, but I had gifted my Azure Reaper to someone who would use it as I didn't like the claws. Not my style.

Sooooo for us short folk, I would LOVE a 20” blade option. I attended my first Comic Con in Las Vegas yesterday, and after putting my costume on, I realized that my hilt plus blade was too long, and my blade was dragging on the ground Sad
So naturally I tried putting my youngling’s 16” blade in my saber hilt, and it looked ridiculous. So I ended up carrying around my saber all day. Not that it was a bad thing, but making purchases became cumbersome. So it would be nice to have a short enough blade to look awesome, but still have on the belt for the shorties out there. A 20-21” blade PLEASE US!

You can always request a shorter blade while placing your order. Get the right procedure from Marlena (just write an email to marlena@ultrasabers.com) and US will take care of that.

They only offer a few lengths in the shop (for obvious reasons, otherwise it's flooded with dozens and dozens of different blades), but are kind enough to do special lengths on request.

Nice to know. I don't like cutting down blades myself.

This would be sweet. I know what you are talking about and wish the reapers did not have the narrower hole that traps speaker/sound card/battery pack to the lower part of the hilt.  It would be so much more versatile.

I have a few suggestions.
First, I think that the blade plugs should be included with every saber, and fancier ones can be an upcharge.
Second, I think there needs to be a new Prophecy saber, that looks more like the one seen in AOTC.
Third, I need an Obi-Wan saber from ROTS already.
Fourth, I would like some new saber designs, possibly created by the saber community, maybe with a contest or something.  Winner could get their saber design for free.
Fifth, we absolutely need a Bastila Shan saber right now.
