UltraSaber’s New Customization Options!

image1

Last year, I reviewed the awesome lightsaber I received from UltraSabers. Now, they have pommel’s and emitter’s available to customize your lightsabers!

UltraSabers

I received a choice of each to review.

UltraSabers

Here is a pic of the original.

UltraSabers

And this is a look at the War glaive pommel. Sure, the original is awesome. But it’s nice to be able to switch these up.

I also received the cool-looking Manticore Emitter pictured above with the pommel; however, I haven’t been able to connect this yet. Most likely user error on my part!

Check out all of the UltraSaber’s lightsaber and customization options at this link!
