This lightsaber was originally made by MachinedFX in a limited run that some people are real familiar with. It is in the style of the Starkiller/Galen Marek Lightsaber from the game: Starwars The Force Unleashed. We ordered this saber with electronics, meaning a lit crystal and Luxeon led for the blade. Like many who ordered this option the saber came with some "issues". We completely gutted the saber and started fresh, machined a proper heatsink for the main led as well as a new custom aluminum crystal holder that also serves as the head of the custom soundboard chassis. We also didn't recieve the "brass rod" that was supposed to connect the crystal to ????. So we threaded one into the custom heatsink and dimpled it so that the very tip of the crystal goes into the brass. The crystal was originally a plastic glob looking thing so we chucked that in favor of a natural quartz crystal properly lit with a red accent led rather than the incandescent lamp that came with it. A hasbro FX sith board powers the Luxeon III red-o through a 36" thinwall dual diffused blade. A custom machined aluminum pommel was also made in leu of the painted sinktube cap that came with it. The pommel houses the recharge port for the 3.7V Li-Ion battery pack. We left the switch in the covertec, becuase the saber is so light I didn't think that it posed a danger to the switch for the casual costumer. It also allows the user to assume the "reverse grip" that the game character uses.
