Starkiller Stalker: Custom Ultrasabers Raven

The custom sabers just keep coming here at Arms of Ilum. Today’s entry has a bit of an interesting backstory. A few weeks ago, I was working on a custom Hasbro Black Series Darth Vader conversion for a friend when LED Supply messed up my order not just once, but twice. I had originally ordered a Tri-Cree red, photo red,… Read more »

Gray Consular: Custom Ultrasabers Apprentice V4

Before I get into this rundown, It’s worth mentioning that this saber is very, very similar to the Republic Defender that I recently completed. I’ll note the differences where applicable, but readers should also check out that build for a different take on a very similar concept. Because the customer in this case wanted a light-side saber with a green… Read more »

Republic Defender: A Custom Ultrasabers Apprentice V4

Over the winter and the first portion of the new year, I was pretty well inundated with commissioned saber builds. Most of those were stunt sabers that to be perfectly honest, got a bit boring after a bit. Fortunately, one of my customers asked for a basic saber with sound and even better, a purple blade. I’m calling this one… Read more »

ICYMI: Ultrasabers Unveils the Emperor’s Hand, a Mara Jade Inspired Saber

If you’re on the Ultrasabers mailing list, you undoubtedly saw this. If not, you may not be aware that the company just unveiled the new Emperor’s Hand hilt and in short, it looks great.

Noble Apprentice: A Custom Ultrasabers Initiate V4

Last month, I posted an overview of one of the sabers that I helped to customize as part of a Christmas gift for a friend’s children. That saber, the Imperial Acolyte as I named it, was a Sith-inspired hilt with a red blade and Imperial accents. Today, we will be looking at the Imperial Acolyte’s Jedi counterpart, the Noble Apprentice…. Read more »

Imperial Acolyte: A Custom Ultrasabers Dark Apprentice V4

Recently, I’ve taken on several commissioned saber projects to help friends with Christmas gifts for their children. The first of these, the Ultrasabers Dark Apprentice-based Imperial Acolyte, as I am calling it, rolled out to the buyer yesterday and I’d like to share the details of the customization here. This hilt represents my basic cosmetic work with some electrical tweaks…. Read more »

Ultrasabers Announces New Saber Inspired by Mace Windu, Ahsoka Tano to Come

Yesterday, Ultrasabers sent out an email announcing their new Electrum Wind saber hilt. The hilt, which draws substantial inspiration from the one used by Mace Windu in the prequels, is the latest in Ultrasabers’ line of film-inspired designs. It is also very likely the company’s most intricate hilt to date. The gold, black, and silver accents all combine to make… Read more »

Arms of Ilum’s Custom Ultrasabers Initiate LE V4 in Guardian Blue

As I mentioned in my review of the hilt, Ultrasabers’ Initiate LE V4 is a dignified looking saber, but it is just a little too plain for my tastes. Seeing as how the Initiate was a grab bag purchase, I couldn’t complain much. As it arrived, the saber was really a $90 hilt that I managed to snag for $55…. Read more »

USB Battery Bank Conversion for Stunt Sabers

Almost immediately after purchasing my Ultrasabers grab bag lightsabers, I hit the forums to see how I could customize my new acquisitions. Sure, the hilts hadn’t actually arrived yet and I had no clue which models I would ultimately receive, but I’ve never been one to leave things be and I wasn’t about to change. While cruising Ultrasabers’ official forums,… Read more »

Grab Bag Review: Ultrasabers Dark Sentinel LE V4 in Consular Green

Around two weeks ago, I decided to take the Ultrasabers grab bag plunge in somewhat of a big way. Rather than simply pick up one saber and be done, I couldn’t help but even things up with a second hilt. Last week, I shared my thoughts on one of my random arrivals, the Initiate LE V4, and today we will… Read more »
