If you’re a Star Wars fan, we’re sure you remember those lightsabers and we’re sure you must have a toy lightsaber that springs to life if you flick it open hard enough. That’s where Adaptive Saber Parts (ASP), by Saber Forge, company known for making high quality lightsaber replicas comes in, they are highly detailed modular saber parts that allow anyone to build a beautiful custom saber with electronics. It’s probably the closest you’ll ever get to the real thing.
The lightsabers are promised to be movie-quality, and are simple enough that you’ll be able to assemble one even if you don’t have too many DIY skills. Adaptive Saber Parts plan to offer more than 100 unique parts, meaning you’ll be able to get creative and make a unique lightsaber.
ASP have three main categories; the metal parts, the electronics kits and the blades. The parts are made from strong steel, and the blades are made from polycarbonate (frosted and glow brightly), so you can battle with other ASP lightsaber owners. Saber Forge will release new ASP parts monthly, so you’ll always have something new to play around with. The company is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter. They have already raised three times the amount of their original goal. You can get the ‘custom saber hilt’ for $150 and a custom saber with LED blade hikes the price to $225. If everything goes as planned, shipping will begin in November.
