    I'm going with Vaders Vault some time in 2017. I've heard only good things about their product. ;)

    Cool post man! I am about only a year late to this one haha.

    But I thought I would give you some of my experiences, I have owned one of all of these at some point. lol

    HANDS DOWN the best high end sabers on the market:
    Genesis and Vaders Vault!
    Everything from piping, lighting to boards, they're the business and are sexy as all hell!
    I have a Genesis shell I am filling and it's so nice! But warm that wallet up, cause it's gonna get lit up.

    Ultrasabers
    If you're super budget focused then, US are good, I bought a few in my early days and honestly I did send a few back.
    So, they have a lot of blade colours, basic desgins and awesome for stunting, they hold easy and dropping them is non issue.

    FX Sabers
    These are my favorite, not for quality or anything like that, just they are traditional and they're real official sabers!
    Honestly, you could drop these and they're RIP, dropped from higher than your waist it's done. lol They're to look pretty on a shelf and that's it.

    JQSabers
    I personally think these guys are the gods when it comes to a stunt sabers, they're well balanced, nice looking sabers.
    I had one years ago, Caliburn original style and I would actually have another to be honest.

    Saberforge
    When we talk, price, looks, quality and all that Saberforge comes out ticking all boxes. Now I think dealing with Phil there is
    like dealing with a small child but when you do eventually get your saber, it's a complete joy and an amazing product!
    I have had one faulty and in the now 15 I have had that's not bad. First time buyers should look no further.

    If you wanna see my current SF sabers I did this one the other day. https://thecantina.starwarsnewsnet....my-latest-saber-and-collection-to-date.10970/

    I'm bouncing between Vaders Vault and Ultrasaber. Longer wait time with VF but from what I hear it is worth the wait.

    I've been wanting to get into these custom sabers for a long time. I have quite a few master replicas sabers and some recent black series. The custom sabers blow them away! I'm going with Vaders vault. I've researched all the companies and they are the best with customer service and they have the highest quality. I liked some of the saborforge models but I've heard horrible things about there customer service and the quality is not nearly as good. VV have chassis and are made with extremely high quality materials. It takes time but it's worth it. I'm going to order a double battle wrapped Havoc with RGB. This way my Son can have his dream double saber and then we can separate them and duel. I requested custom led lights on the side to make it extra special. Well see how much that would cost. I'm so excited to get my first VV!

    Whatever you do, do not trust or buy from UltraSabers.

    Don't trust these guys. They post pictures that don't represent the finished product, the finished product was supposed to have slits in the hilt for the light to shine through but they pulled a bait and switch move on me.

    And they scam you more by making sure the couplers on their saber staffs don't line up properly as you can see in the picture and then offer to send you proper ones if you pay a lot of extra money them for it.

    It also showed up with two different size blades of different qualities. Save yourself the headache and just shop elsewhere, these are very low quality.

    IMG_0286.JPG Use saborforge, it's the best of the group. Made custome saber with them. It's balanced and fun to use. The blade is stronger than the other ones.

    I have some questions about lightsabers replicas and I think this is the perfect thread for that judging some of the comments that I read here.

    Considering that I live in Luxembourg, Europe, from wich sites should I order in case if will buying one?

    What do you think about Master Replicas Lightsabers? Are the hilts perfect replicas from the original's one? How does it cost usually one of theses hilts? I found this one in one app thst I use here and I think it looks so perfect, but I would like to know what do you think about quality and price (165 euros). Some pics:

    Screenshot_20200729-103042_Vinted.jpg Screenshot_20200729-103054_Vinted.jpg

    I've been searching for the FX Lightsabers on Amazon from Germany but they're too expensive. How much these saber costs in USA, for example?

    Here's Kylo Ren saber for 315 Euros. But I don't know how accurate the hilt is. Are these models made with metal or plastic?

    This one of Luke from ROTJ is 700 euros!!!

    Screenshot_20200729-104011_Amazon Shopping.jpg

    Actually I'm not sure if I will start to collect them with the blade or without the blade (like the Master Replicas model). The ones with no blade looks much more like the originals one and you can place them in a showcase for example.

    What do you think?

    I used to have some of the regular black series lightsabers with a unremovable blade (ANH Luke, ROTJ Luke & Kylo Ren), but they took up so much room and were awkward to display.

    I ended up selling them and replacing them with the legacy hilts from Galaxy’s Edge. Now I can display the hilts, but still have the option to add & remove the blade whenever I want.

    Having owned both, I’d also say the Galaxy’s Edge hilts are slightly better (in both quality/accuracy) than the regular Black series from Hasbro.

    Found this Luke's saber from ROTJ by Master Replicas online for 200 euros.
    Is the blade removable? I guess so right?
    How much it cost one of these these days?
