Those are some pretty cool effects! The FX-Saber blades and how often they had a blown LED dark spot put me off of string blades, but I have to admit, looking at some of the neo-pixel results, I'm starting to slowly come around to considering them again.
It's really hard to capture how it really looks on camera. I tried a few times, but was not able to really do it justice.
For some reason I really like the blue fire! I never thought of using the fire effect as an ignition or flicker type effect, but I may have to play with that.
We have a similar (regular) fire effect in LSOS that has lockup and clash effects as well. Memory limitations currently keep a ATtmega328 from having it loaded at the same time as other blade types, so it needs to be set prior to compiling.
Whoa!! Andras Kylo one is the closest one, so long as it isn't the camera exposure enhancing it! I would prefer the flash this one has with the standard solid blade like jbkuma and profezzorn, with just a bit more blade flicker for realism.
Rogue Five: Hi Bentley! Where y'all been?

Rogue Five: Sandpeople-Cool! I don't have any of the Noble Collection swords but I have a few of the United Cutlery ones and they are superb replicas as they're modeled directly from the original props. If you're interested in buying another one, I highly recommend

Rogue Five: Anduril. I have one and it is gorgeous and sturdily made. I believe it is a full tang sword so you could swing it around without it flying apart. Trust me, you'll feel like the King of Gondor holding this thing lol.

ARKM: "full tang United Cutlery" is an oxymoron.

ARKM: That does not mean that they aren't nice for hanging on the wall though. I have a UC Kurgan sword. I like it.

Rogue Five: Yeah I wouldn't go looking for a fight with any wall hanger swords lol. I think Anduril and Strider's Ranger sword are the only full tang swords in the LOTR line.

Rogue Five: I looked into getting a functional Anduril from a custom swordsmith but no one I found made a screen accurate one.

Rogue Five: That Kurgan one is nice. Sword afficianados like to dump on it because it has a two piece blade and they're right but who cares! It looks bad a**
