    Holy cow .. they are out of business!!!! I have been trying for the last few days to get my LED part for my saber and had trouble sending ourder. I finally got through to someone and they said no longer taking any order cause it is out of business. He did say they plan to be getting another company up in the next month or so. This sucks and now I have to try and find another place to get my red LED.

    Looks like it's more of a "Restructuring" than going out of business, per se. Still, who knows what all this will entail, or how long it will take.

    Not to bash them, but I hope they improve their quality. yes, you get what you pay for, but I've done more work to repair my saber after last year than I ever wanted to. I see a similar repair needed on Steve Lo's saber. (May need to replace the battery connector and solve your wire problem)


    Maybe it was just the beating I took from Bryan last year.....:p

    Karen just placed an order this past monday with them. Hope they fill that order for the game next week...

    I was planning on ordering a LED module for a saber that I'm constructing. Guess that will have to wait a while.

    Considering we beat the heck out of these sabers for the better part of half a year on a very regular basis, we can't realistically expect them to last forever. Most of the repairs have been rather minor: a wire needs to be reconnected. We'd surely have this problem with any saber by any maker. It's just the nature of bashing electronic devices against each other. Surely if we threw space heaters or laptops against one another for long enough they'd stop working too. :p

    I agree BP, they aren't Rolex watches....;)

    It is my understanding that they will be back in business within a month or so. SO I heard...

    AND they have a new (cheaper yet cooler) sound option.

    AND a Qui-Gon saber. Win.
