I'm in the process of putting together a Qui-Gon Jinn costume, based on being told repeatedly that I look like Liam Neeson.

Is the Ultrasabers 'Consular' hilt approvable for this costume? I know US are on the larger size (although I have XXL hands so perspective wise I think it would look fine), and are not marketed as screen accurate so as not to offend the mouse, but in principle, can this saber be approved for Qui-Gon?

TIA

It's close, but might not be close enough

I'm using this as a reference for QGJ's saber

The Consular steel wrap isn't quite right, and it lacks the red switch button. However, it's closer than the SF Exile or Guardian models. Vader's Vault doesn't seem to have anything close.

I think the lack of the red button is what would break it for the LCJ

Yeah, good question here! I was wondering the same thing! A Qui-Gon build is on my eventual wishlist, and I figured an Ultrasabers hilt might be the way to go. I suppose one could replace the standard US button with a more accurate one, but would that be enough?

Pretty sure you'd be fine with the US Consular.
Its close enough that it would probably pass.
You can get the red hand screw (switch/button) from The Custom saber shop and drill/tap it in place for cosmetic if needed.
