Finally, here is my review of my OWK Saber, TPM Flavor by SOSDD. I must apologize to SOSDD for the lateness of this review. I say finally because this is the saber I have dreamed of since 1999 when I first saw Obi Wan wield this in The Phantom Menace:)
First off let me start this by saying I cant say enough Good things About SOSDD. He does Top Notch Work and at a Reasonable price. I was very impressed when I first started seeing photos of the progress of this saber. For not having a CNC Machine or Lathe he does Awesome work!!!! He was also very patient with me in some issues that came up and was great to work with. Saber is Running a RB/RB/DR Tri Cree w Red for FOC, Igniter 2 Sound, Solos Hold 18500 2000 Mah Battery, and a 20MM Bass Speaker by Railmaster.
Enough with the rambling on to the pictures
Here it is in the Mirrored Display case with the TRA Coin:
Next is a photo of the Unlit Crystal Chamber with the real crystal
Next is the Lit Saber with a RB/RB/DR Tri Cree w Red for FOC

jaltrooper: Hey guys! Dumb question...but are there any t-shirts available, or any other swag I can buy to support the Page?

ARKM: We have challenge coins. Contact Luke Skywalker if you want one.

Luke Skywalker: We never did any swag. There's never enough interest to even break even. My sponsor coin run was a huge success and helped us pay the bills well into 2018 and even gave us the money to fund a couple of one time costs we incurred this year.

Luke Skywalker: As for shirts. I really need to get one for me as well. I've been wanting one with our new logo since we changed over. My desire has always been that this is a site for the members. I consider you all my friends and have no desire to make a profit from

ARKM: Luke Skywalker, hit me up if you want the image I used for the front of my shirt.

Luke Skywalker: Site. I never intend to charge selling fees. The coin drive was a much better way to go imho. As for our logo, name and copywriter and TM's go. I have no issue with anyone wanting to use them. I ask two things. Please let me know prior. If it's crude

Luke Skywalker: and vulgar and casts us in a bad light I simply won't approve it. The other thing I think would be nice is that if our name is used on things like t-shirts that you do make a small donation to help support the site.

Luke Skywalker: My recommendation, and the place I will definitely go when I want to have a shirt done is TRA member defcon. Al's work is outstanding. Al is the Solo's Hold of saber bags and other fabric items. I've had him make me a couple of shirts and several

Luke Skywalker: saber bags. His merchandise is perfection.

Luke Skywalker: I think I'm down to about 8 coins.

Luke Skywalker: ARKM what image did you use? Was it the one with SVD's glowing eyes? I'm really curious to see how our logo looks on a shirt. Defcon would certainly need to use the flattened simpler version. For a detailed logo I think you'd need it silk screened.
