ASU Quidditch -- Brooms up!


« on: May 02, 2019, 04:29:53 PM »

I will be at Phoenix Fan Fusion all four days (May 23-26), and I hope to be adding to my UltraSabers collection while I'm there.  Besides US staff, who else will be there?

Apparently, I'll be the only SaberForum member at Phoenix Fan Fusion who isn't working the UltraSabers booth.  Well, THAT is going to be a bit of a bummer.  Sad

Nothing new, but I was amazed at how light the Grand Master felt. 

The Scorpion was much more massive (as compared to both the Grand Master and my expectations), and given my beginner status, that extra mass and length outweighed the “sexiness” of the design for me at this stage, and I decided not to buy the Scorpion (at least for now).

I agreed with several other people here who have said that the claws on the (Dark) Initiate v5 and the Aeon/Dominix v5 feel too sharp for comfort based on where I would grasp the hilt, so I decided not to buy any of these, either.

The (Dark) Apprentice v5 and the (Dark) Sentinel v5 models feel as good as they look, and the various Menace models, the Consular, the Manticore, the Electrum Wind, the Emperor’s Hand, the Spectre (both with and without the engraving), and the Grand Master all looked wonderful— so wonderful that I couldn’t make up my mind. 😧  Too many BEAUTIFUL choices!

In short, I bought a 24” HG blade and a circle plug for my Aeon LE v3, and decided to wait to buy my Diamond saber until I could make a decision.   I didn’t want to rush into a decision because of the limited time available to me at the convention (remember that I was actually working a booth) and then wish later that I’d bought a different saber.  I can now sit and ponder at my leisure, and order from the website when I’m (more) certain what I want.

I also want to point out that, as good as the pictures on the website are, they really don’t do the sabers justice; they look even better in person than they do in those professionally-staged photos.

Below is a shirt I bought from the official Phoenix Fan Fusion swag booth, which was DIRECTLY across the aisle from the UltraSabers booth. Since it was sabers surrounded by the outline of the state of Arizona, I couldn't resist.  Points to those who can help me identify, both by UltraSabers model name and by the inspiring wielder (including name and movie/book/comic/game/etc.) for each of the sabers on the shirt!

That is an awesome shirt!! With just a hint of Pride, too.

The right most one is the Dorinian, or Mace Windu's from TPM. Wink

Hi Cyclops942,

Yes that's a great shirt, I wonder if it is available with the outline of the UK on it!

Regards the hilts as far as I know they are from left to right (starting with the red blade)

1) The Chosen One _Darth Vader - Star Wars Ep.4

2) The Consular_Qui-Gon Jinn - The Phantom Menace

3)  Shaak-Ti or Adi Galia - The Clone Wars - No current Ultrasaber model. (I think the closest US hilt would be a Shock)

4) Archon 3.1_Luke Skywalker - The Return of the Jedi - The Last Jedi

5) Obi-Wan Kenobi - Episode 3 and Star Wars (Ep.4) - No current US model, though some folks modify Archons.

6) The Dorinian_Plo Koon - The Clone Wars and Prequel Trilogy. Plo Koon is a member of the Kel Dor species - hence I suspect US named the hilt DORinian. (As Jillian mentioned for a short time Mace Windu also used a similar hilt owned by Eeth Koth)

I hope this helps.
