About this project
The production version of the saber will be made on a CNC machine from 6061-T6 aluminium and the package will include one complete Makashi Renegade with black anodized grip and permanent mirror finish. It will have a media blast accent on the step downs behind the chamber/overlay and the ring in the middle will be polished brass. The covertec knob will be polished brass as well as the buttonhead accents in the pommel. The emitter will hold a 1 inch or 7/8 inch custom polycarbonate blade.
Depending on the package selected the saber will be using the Plecter Labs Crystal Focus 6.50 or Petit Crouton 2.0 for controlling the LEDs and sound. Main LED and custom 7 color SMD LED bar-graph are controllable with a feature called R.I.C.E. that gives you the ability to set the configuration of the lights in real time through a program on the computer. For sound clarity and depth of field a 3watt 4ohm speaker will be used... For size comparison look to the static MR Anakin from AToC. This saber will be comparable to that in size and finish. Available in 5 LED color options ...
Option A - Tri Cree GGW green with white flash.
Option B - Tri Cree BBW blue with white flash.
Option C - Tri Cree RRW red with white flash.
Option D -Tri Cree RBW purple with white flash.
Option E - Tri Cree RGB multi color setup includes Plecter Labs Color Xtender (CeX)
Also included in the package will be a custom emitter plug, custom saber stand and custom name plaque.

Risks and challenges
I've spent the last two years doing the research and development for this project and I have access to a great group of suppliers and vendors within the saber community who are lined up to produce the different parts. I am confident that by working closely with everyone involved we will be able to overcome any unexpected circumstance that might arise during the production process.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
