I've looked through these a few times but I always seem to find one that I missed.

I want a Kestrel!  It's like a Liberator, but in initiate size.  The Liberator is such a great hilt anyway, but a short version for spinning?!  Yes, please!

Back in my day all FOUR (yea, there were only 4) hilts were made from PVC and painted. There were two types of blades, Heavy and regular. And sound? It came from your mouth.

History of Ultrasabers is one of glory and joy.

Oh wait, am I back on this thing again? (I never really leave)

Under the FAQ section on the site it says that they will bring back a saber if you can get 249 people who want it as well.
Anyone else want the Libby VI and the Tempest back?
There must be 249 of you out there...somewhere... Grin

Tempest no, I don't think I would buy a PVC saber, but that Liberator looks nice. 

I felt a great disturbance in the force as if millions of nerds cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.

True.  And a double sided Mantis would be close to the Tempest.
I like the old Libby most.

I finally made it through to this thread and was amazed by the work put in by Moderator Big Boss.  Searching and finding all the pics and youtube videos of past saber designs was a daunting task and he did an amazing job.  

Its awesome to see how the company has grown and being able to see the evolvion of the sabers makes me want to design a few myself.  I was wondering if anyone else noticed the similarities of #24 - The Ephesian to the new saber shown in the Episode 7 trailer.

If you havent noticed it you need to check it out, it looks pretty dang close.  I think someone needs to get some royalties on that saber design.

I know I quoted his whole thread, but it really is pretty epic, so we should all go back through it and see how things have progressed.  Im so sad that it took me so long to buy my 1st saber.  I would have loved to have one or more of these classic designs.

Man this thread took me forever! Cheesy Original Author was MKXIII of the FX-Saber forums, but he hasn't been online for several years! I have updated  it since it was very outdated and found new links/pics and saved them to my photobucket because most of the links were no longer working. Plus i have added newer sabers to the list. Also be aware most of the sabers i have listed are not in alphabetical/dated order and the dates listed are not exact.

 Its nice to see UltraSabers past and present sabers so we can see how far they've come from opening up way back in 2005; enjoy! Smiley

I've owned a couple of Aggressors (green and orange) for a long time, though I recently gave them to a friend's kids, and an original black SS with a Silver blade. I transferred the SS's parts into an Aeon V2 not long ago, but I still have that big heavy black hilt.
Both Aggressors had d-rings installed on the end caps, and I had brass thumbscrews in place of the standard blade screws to make removing the blade quick.
The orange Aggressor I had weathered with Miracle grow after protecting random parts with bits of tape, which gave it this vivid, somewhat blotchy blue green weathered look aside the copper, which I let dull out nicely as well, and I had given the grip more traction with some leather textured red-brown colored strips of duct tape, after which I sealed it with a spray of matte sealant. I'll try to see if I can get a picture of it (I never thought to and it's now 200 miles away).

My Green bladed Aggressor had some ridged rubber grips running the length under the ring with the switch, cut from an old doormat, glued on then secured by a 4-5 O-rings in the ridges. Before I did that I polished it up till you could see your reflection in it and immediately used a very high gloss sealant. It was shiny.

I took the risk of cooking my SS and the only modification I made was to the batteries; It came with a 3x AA battery holder, at the time I had a ready supply so I replaced it with a holder that held 3x 1/2AA batteries (for 9 volts). I did do the math and added a bit more resistance in series with the led but it still was quite a bit brighter and looked very good with the color disks in it. To facilitate quick changing I had a thumb screw for the blade, and I had replaced the endcap plug with something a bit easier to pull out and kept the extra color disks in the hilt. (iirc it was a sanded down 'not child proof' medicine bottle cap.

After I lost my ready supply of 1/2 AA's I put the old AA holder back in place. (A friend worked at a place where they used them heavily and replaced them after they ate past their 'fresh' voltage and fell into their nominal 3 V range. They lasted a long time in my saber still.)

E-Series Aggressor, FO
E-Series Steel Standard Issue, AS (parts stripped)
Customized Initiate V2, AS (internals from SSI + regulator and Li-ion)
2 Dominix V2 RGB w/Coupler

Remember, the saber and jedi exist to serve the force, but only one can serve the force without the other.

Greetings to you all.

I stumbled my way to this thread and am also flabbergasted by Moderator Big Boss' sheer effort. Shocked  I cannot imagine the time and dedication spent scouting the plethora of YouTube videos and photos of former designs. If I had the resources, I would consider designing them as well, so kudos to those who do this for a living (or hobby).

Technology has really progressed to the point where I'm pleased with my decision to return the Ultimate FX version and pull the proverbial trigger on my 1st UltraSaber.

I look forward to meditating on many of your posts here and perhaps will see some of you at The Rock Czars' future appearances.

I would like to see a Legacy V3 made and returned, I like the design of that one, still a Rattlesnake return, and a Vegabond return. I think these could all be re-made =] Any votes for these 3? Would make great light side lightsaber additons even though the Vegabond could go either way too though

What's hard to understand about swish swish stab?

Looking through the list of PVC sabers I think I own one of the sabers not listed. I thought it was an Initiate, but it appears that it's not. Anyone got anything on this? Takes a 1" blade, rubber O-rings all around, pommel was a piece of plastic that was forced into a threaded PVC tube (a piece recently broke off that cap), and slanted emitter. Bought in 2006, I remember it's that year because my father bought it for me and my brother in 6th grade with 36" blades. Brother hit me in the forehead so hard with his, I had a shiner that lasted three weeks that made it into the school yearbook.
