Waited all week for my Ultrasaber to arrive so I can finally submit my pictures for a generic Jedi approval. Got the box off the porch and it was literally bent. Opened the box and sure enough my blade had a 40 degree bend in it and was broken! Awwww. Emailed ultrasaber and their on it. Now to wait another week. Wish I could use the force against FedEx.

Sorry to hear man. Hopefully the hilt didn't get any damage to it. They send it in a triangle long fedex box? If so, had to have been something heavy to drop on it to get the blade. At least its just the blade.

I'm glad ultrasabers is offering such good customer service and working with you to replace it right away. That's where I got mine, and I usually rec them when people ask, but I always have that fear that I might be an aberration and others will not have such a good experience. Keeping them on my list for "where should I get a lightsaber?" questions.

Wow. I’d be quite angry.
That’s awesome they’re going to get you a new one right away.
Looking forward to seeing the result!

I found out a steamer works 10 times better with up keep after you get your good ironing in. Sometimes you have to spot iron... but the steamer does mostly the trick.
