Next up, a small batch of concept "Luke Starkiller" hilts (as seen in the famous concept illustration), empty and ready for FX install!
Machined aluminum, hilt breaks into multiple components, allowing easy access to internals or various reveal CC setups. The ID is about 31mm (tad under 1.25") for about 130mm (5.1") long space. Pommel has somewhat radical sound venting structure and the speaker holes can be drilled in the lower frame tube, leaving the pommel endcap solid & clean. You will have to drill the sound holes, though, and since the postal service apparently lost the bag of set screws I ordered, the blade retention screw drilling & tapping will be also needed.
Blade holder accepts regular 1" tubes, since I figured this is the size most people have already at home. But, to get the more "screen accurate" base flare effect, the hilts come with an adapter for slimmer 7/8" blade as well! Also included is a proprietary LED module.
Currently, I have FOUR (4) kits left!
Here's more pics for you (the KOTOR hilt used for size comparison only):
Asking 139€ ($147/£120 at today's rate) plus 24% VAT where applicable. These are heavier than my standard hilts, so the shipping may be a bit more expensive. I'm guesstimating around 18€ inside EU and 29€ outside.
Thanks for looking, PM or or post a question here for more information!
Hi, are there holes already tapped for power and aux switches? I was giving the photos the once over, but I wasn't clear if that was included or not.
Hiya, there are no holes drilled in the hilts yet! This is because the hilt structure allows quite a number of different electronic setups, and I didn't want to make the decision for the end user. Especially since lots of people nowadays favor various reveal crystal chambers and other bling.

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.
