Bought some chassis parts from Solaren, the communication was great, quality of parts was perfect, and shipping was prompt and all items were well packed. I will definitely look forward to more business in the future! 10/10
I recently purchased a Luke ROTJ V2 saber. It is a One Replicas hilt that solaren completed beautifully. He has a build thread on here. It is by far my best/favorite saber. Not only was the finished product great, but packaging of the saber was extra special. Communication was also top notch. E-mails were responded to in a timely manner before the purchase, during the purchase and since the purchase. I will not hesitate to purchase from again. Thanks.

Commissioned a custom display system for both my TFA Graflex from HARP and Luke ROTJ V2 from Industrial Action Customs. Solaren designed a very special display stand and case system. Great communication back and forth, and he strive for perfection as much as I did. Parts packed flat, and with plenty of reinforcements and padding to survive the trip half way across the world to Malaysia. Thank you Solaren, I owe you everything for a display as beautiful as this.
Based on my first experience with solaren, I did not hesitate to do business with him once again. I'm the proud new owner of his recent Graflex 2.0. He has a build thread on here. Once again, communication was top notch. Packaging was once again superb, with the saber shipped within a wooden chest. Would love to business with solaren again.
profezzorn: hey ARKM, did you ever write a that tutorial on the toner transfer method?

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
