I'm am selling my OM OWK TPM from the original run. This is saber #33, as marked on the covertec. Only the first run has the sabers numbered on the covertec. The saber comes with both pommels (display and vented), the threaded blade plug, as well as the two unique parts to make a threaded blade. Full blade not included. This is how I received it. Does not include the case or stand that was unique to the first run. In fact, the only reason why I am selling is that I was able to track down a first run complete kit.
Builder: MH aka Chewbacca on FX forums. I'm told it was initially his personal saber. Soundboard: Crystal Focus 5 Recharge port underneath the pommel Condition: I would rate as good to very good. There are a couple minor imperfections, but nothing that distracts from this beauty. The largest imperfections are shown in the last 2 pictures of the saber.
Asking price: $1800 plus fees and shipping

I have one of these, and want to convey to potential buyers the incredible quality and complete and total screen accuracy of the OM Obi TPM. This is a unicorn and you will not likely get another chance to pick this up anytime soon. There are only a couple hundred in existence. If you are on the fence, you should ask a friend to push you from that fence.
A couple hundred really over estimates how many of these there really are. This first run one for sale is #33 and that was one going to one of the builders so likely towards the end of the run. My guess would be that the first run was no more than 40. The second run had 59 sold spots. I do know that Ace made a handful more, but I would guess that run was no more than 70. So, between the two runs, only a little more than a hundred.
I'm only selling because I was able to get a complete kit first run and have one from the recent run getting built. I'm almost a little hesitant to sell this one because it is full first run specs. My other first run, although complete, has an ungraded soundboard, so it slightly differs from a true first run saber.

I think the couple hundred estimate was definitely overestimating. I was under the impression that there were three runs, but that doesn't seem to be accurate. I sent Erik (Acerocket) a message asking exactly how many have been made. I await his reply. Not many, that's for sure.
Better for you and I, and the potential buyer. It's probably the rarest run saber ever made, save for the Skinnyflex and a couple other of his high end creations.
Sorry to hijack the thread, I'm dead serious when I say, buy this now because you'll likely never get another chance.
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.
