Some Kung Fu Kickin’ Feedback

Testimonial 1

Amazing quality service, great time response. The skofnung V2 was truly amazing for a much cheaper price than other lightsabers in the market. The electronic inside is unrivaled and really well soldered, but I was primarily flabbergasted by the balance the lightsaber has. It is very light, very bright, very easy to handle and resistant.

Thomas Frers

Fantastic value on these sabers! You can’t beat these for anywhere close to their price. I got the Ulfbehrt string blades for my son. They are bright, durable, and have a cool scrolling feature when powering up, which mimics the movie effect.

I received the saber, it was as promised. Came with Allen wrench and extra set screws, did not expect that. Definitely going to get me some heavy grade blades for dueling.

I seriously can’t recommend them enough. I live in Ecuador and their costumer service was super friendly and helpful. The item you see in the picture has great quality for a very reasonable price. Although I would recommend buying the boots separately, as they are only covers for your shoes and not actual boots. But hey for the price it would be way too much to ask for a pair of actual leather boots. Overall I would buy again from them any day!

Got it super fast, under 2 weeks! And it’s one of the greatest lightsabers I’ve seen! Three sound fonts, RGB, super bright, great sound and all for $220! It’s almost too good to be true but I have it here in my hand as proof!

My Kurosawa arrived this morning and I’ve been swinging it around in the living room off and on all day while I waited for dark to take it outside and see how it holds up. I was already impressed with it and having just come back inside I have to say it’s amazing. It’s nicely weighted and feels good to handle. I opted for the dueling blade upgrade which shows up well and I recommend getting, it’s more than worth the extra $8. I can’t praise this saber or PTHP highly enough. The after sales service is unusually good and delivery was super fast. If I ever need another saber it would take a lot to have me look anywhere else.

FANTASTIC customer service and communication from Shaun. Amazing brightness, well-balanced saber. It’s a little quieter than I thought it would be but I understand that’s not an issue with the newer soundcards. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend PTHP to anyone looking for an awesome lightsaber.

Scott Bishop,

5 Stars. Great saber! Brighter than my Ultrasabers stunt blade, and half the price. Not as detailed or impressive a hilt as US or SF designs, but more than worth the money to get a very bright saber with sound. Surprisingly strong and durable for a string blade when dueling. Would recommend buying this saber over buying stunt sabers from bigger overseas companies, due to the value for money of having sound included. Already thinking about another purchase myself…

barely have words to describe how great this product is, I paid about $230 for a saberforge saber without sound and here I get a saber with sound for almost half the price that is my opinion much better. Would recommend to anyone looking for a high-quality saber for a very affordable price.

Oliver Stewart ,

1)The sound is fantastic. 2) The handle is amazingly well made and designed and houses the button that turns on the sound and light for the blade. 3) Love how the light subsides from the blade. 4) powers up by USB, great idea. I am on FB .. looking forward to more of your video demos.

Great saber! Very bright and cool scrolling and flicker effects. The sound is a bit quieter than other sabers we have, but with two boys who are constantly dueling, my wife and I like that. They are still plenty loud and we have no complaints from the boys. Highly recommended!

I purchased the ‘Mercenary Shadow’ from Part-Time Hero Props for my friend. The saber itself is fantastic given its price. Building a realistic and functional Darksaber is certainly a challenge, to say the least. Without a shadow of a doubt (no pun intended), Part-Time Hero Props have certainly risen and consequently conquered the challenge. The stock internal electronics are sufficient for the price I paid. However, let’s not forget the full potential of this hilt if you installed your own custom order electronics. Let’s say, a Nano Biscotte V4 with WW LEDs. Also, the build quality of the hilt is fantastic, and it’s very true to the Star Wars Rebels rendition of the hilt.

However, the service from Part Time Hero Props could use a lot of work. Firstly, when I pre-ordered the saber, the flash on clash (FOC) was set to be red. Then during the lead-time of the saber, Part-Time Hero props change their FOC to blue, as “an upgrade”. Lowering the wavelength of the LED (since the colour blue has a lower wavelength compared to the colour red) that delivers the FOC in the saber is not an upgrade. An upgrade would be installing a higher quality soundboard or higher quality LEDs.

This “upgrade” was in conflict with the original and preferred order specifications. Nevertheless, Part-Time Hero Props rectified this by installing the original red LED for the FOC in my saber. I appreciate this tremendously, BUT Part-Time Hero Props could have saved themselves a lot of grief with this. By this, I mean that Part-Time Hero Props could have announced that they had an option for a blue FOC, then they could have asked their customers who pre-ordered the saber whether they would still like their red FOC, or whether they would like to change to a blue FOC. If their customers did not reply to them, then they should have stuck to the original FOC of red for those respective orders.

While I’m less than satisfied with Part-Time Hero Props changing a component of my order without consent and the length of time it took them to rectify the issue, Part-Time Hero Props did eventually rectify the issue and threw in some trivial and tokenistic “goodies” as compensation. Part-Time Hero Props also sent out a voucher for their store, that’s nice…

Now, during this ordeal with the FOC, myself and my friend were constantly pressing Part-Time Hero Props about the status of the order. That cross-communication and pressing would have been stressful and frustrating for them. However, Part-Time Hero Props handled this so professionally and with grace.

In Conclusion,

The Mercenary Shadow: 4/5
The Service: 3/5

4+3=7
7/2=3.5/5 (overall)

Part-Time Hero Props is an Australian saber shop, which is much appreciated because there is much stigma surrounding Star Wars fandom in Australia, and thus saber shops/installers are few and far between. So, let’s round this review up to four stars

Ordered the Jedi Robe complete set and love it! Delivery was on time. The fit is great and sizing is right on for Australian sizes. I don’t personally like boot covers (they are so hard to make 1 size fits all) but these work pretty well too.

Shaun and Robin are wonderful folks to work with. They are going to make a great impact in the saber community. I and my company, Fonts by Fourzze will be honored by working with them. I’m also going to be utilizing them for cosplay purposes for my son!

Aaron Sokalski,

The electronic inside is unrivaled and really well soldered, but I was primarily flabbergasted by the balance the lightsaber has. It is very light, very bright, very easy to handle and resistant.

I seldom (almost never) saw that level of professionalism and kindness. They definitely inspire you, advise you, and help you. I really hope the Kickstarter is a high success because if they develop, I truly think they will exceed anyone’s expectations.

So trust me, if you want an outstanding product for a cheap price, they’re the company you’re looking for!

Shaun was beyond understanding and patient with me while we worked out the lightsaber I had in mind. He reassured me that everything would be perfect and his sabers are covered under warranty if it didn’t work when it got here (Shipping to the US).
Got it this week and it looks PERFECT, works GREAT! Made it safe and sound in secure packaging! I’m incredibly happy! Great customer service, great product! Don’t look anywhere else! Thanks, Shaun! I’ll be ordering another soon!

Got my hands on a digital copy of their foam basics book, and I have to say it’s really great! Covers most basic techniques required when starting to craft things like armour, as well as general tips for working with foam. Great inclusion of important safety tips right at the beginning. Perfect for anyone just starting out, and has piqued my interest in their workshops as well. Altogether a great guide for the basics especially for their really awesome price.
