First, I need to make an apology to Darth Ryo. We spoke last summer about his status and putting him in the Consortium. We got him into the Armory but he got lost in the system and we never moved him up to the consortium.
Better late than never........
Please join us in welcoming Darth Ryo into the IRA Consortium.
In my almost ten years in the custom saber hobby, we've come a long way. Gone are the days of sliding foam and a piece of PVC into your hilts to hold your electronics. Enter the age of 3D printing and insane saber chassis.
I don't think anyone can disagree that Darth Ryo has taken the 3D chassis system to new heights. There's really no comparison to the shapeways options that go up against Darth Ryo's products. I'm anxiously awaiting my first purchase of a Darth Ryo shapeways chassis. I'm about to build sabers for my two sons and there's no doubt what chassis they'll get.
Darth Ryo, welcome to the Imperial Royal Arms Consortium. It's been long overdue and very much deserved. As are all of our Consortium members, you're a highly valued member and bring so much to the site. Thank you for your tireless work designing Shapeways parts. Thank you for all of your contributions to the IRA.

Congrats, Ced. Long overdue promotion to the IRA Consortium. But let's hope you don't let this "consortium" business go to your head, though. That way leads to the dark side... Next thing you know, we'll see you hosting a new show called "Pimp my Chassis"
Try not. Do or do not. There is no try.
Except when nerf herding; then all bets are off...
methos: Money can't buy happiness... but it can buy lightsabers, which is damn close

ZahcStarKiller: Yeah I have to agree. I just happened to stumble across spot #1 on the orbital machining Obi TPM run and had the opportunity to purchase it. That is pretty darn close to happiness.

ZahcStarKiller: djcbooks81, My collection is getting pretty fat as well. Three graflex, luke V2, Phoenix Props Kylo, Orbital Machining Obi, and a few custom sabers. Will be looking for a Qui Gon soon, and then I'll be starting to acquire every saber variant from the OT.

ZahcStarKiller: Then the PT. Must have a good Maul and a few clan sabers. The lady of the house just approved my idea of doing a cantina in one of our huge spare bedrooms, so I am starting a Hn in Carbonite (full size) this summer and will probably be starting an R2 also.
