I'm currently working on an Old Ben costume and am now searching for his lightsaber. I am wondering what you guys think is the best company to purchase from as far as accuracy and durability is concerned. I've been looking at Ultrasabers, but I'm not sure how accurate their "Archon" one or whatever it's called actually is.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

if you want accurate, you want a Roman's Props Obi Wan, all his pieces are EXACT replicas of the real deal parts:

Static Display Hilts - http://www.romanprops.com/kits

FX Convertible Hilts - http://www.romanprops.com/fxkits

Now, if you want to save some cash, look up Korbanth on FX Sabers, he is doing a run of ANH style hilts, they are nice but not near as accurate as Roman's.

I think Parks was still selling static MK's as well though not sure if his customer service time has changed any nor the wait period.

Korbanth and Parks work together, Korbanth is a Parks reseller. You will get WAY better customer service and responses from Randy/Korbanth than you will Parks

Ended up ordering from one of Korbanth's K4 runs. Thanks everyone!
