Just saw two additions in the Ultrasaber shop.

Crimson & Crimson reaper

What do you think?

In my option they look pretty cool, although I would change something about the claws.. but still 150$ as a base price for this saber is pretty good.

They look pretty cool, but I'd use them for a Sith. They just don't seem right with a Jedi. It's mostly the claws.

They seem a bit 'out there', if you know what I mean...

It's a bit too much of a good thing...

I like the overall design...that is, what they did to get the look they achieved. I do think those are a little too Sithy for Jedi. But with some mods (perhaps color), I'd call them more suitable Wink

I agree with Roger.

I want to see one like that.. but the lines in the hilt glow the same color of the blade.. would be like a "tron" styled hilt. Think that would be cool.

I concur w/ Roger... I will however concede that if one were to remove the claws (yes, they are removeable), these could be Jedi-appropriate.

Bieng MHS-compatible also allows for alot of customizing possibilities.

Looking very nice. The "wired" design pattern looks very neat and give great detail but I don't like the claw at the bottom side. I already despise the big box on Vader's lightsaber and think, this claw could be a great setback during fights. You can cut yourself, lose balance etc.

Lose the claw and the thing is great! But I already have my Bellicose and am very fond of it. ^^

That was my impression as well is that they had a Sithly Tron look. Fun idea. Probably not Jedi friendly with the colours and claw.

Definitely not hand-friendly, that claw. o.O

Both the claws are removable- I plan to get one of these- get the black reaper, and for an extra $20, they will swap out the emitter and pommel with crimson ones. I also plan to go for a Sentinal Yellow blade- together with removing the claws, that should help make it a little less sithy.
One of these days, I might get one for a friend- black with a green blade.
