This is the OFFICIAL SIGN UP to be added to the NEO PIXEL DARKSABER RIPPER BLADE RUN AND THE NEO PIXEL KATANA RUN. We will email you updates every 2 weeks starting Sunday, July 26th. UPDATES will be posted on this website as well.
Gary Ripper has been working with plastics (acrylic and polycarbonate) since his days as a cutter for Tapp Plastics over 12 years ago. Most light saber enthusiasts back then communicated through several forums and the Darksaber was something EVERYONE said was IMPOSSIBLE. "You can't make BLACK light" This Darksaber is one of the first versions of the Ripper Blade Darksaber. Eight years later, we are launching the Neo Pixel Darksaber. After dozens of versions, the Darksaber has finally REALLY COME TO LIFE. Thank you all for the years of support and for making Ripper Blades a reality.
There is more to come and we hope you join us on this EPIC journey.
It's FINALLY happening. Ripper Blades is finally going to be offering NEO PIXEL DARKSABERS! After several prototypes, we are confident enough to bring this product to our VIPs and soon to be VIPs. We are on the last stretch so SIGN UP TO BE ON THE LIST and we will be going through the list once we start making the Darksaber. We will be sending ALL who sign up updates EVERY two weeks and this website will ALWAYS have the latest updates. STAY TUNED!
It seems the interest in a NEO PIXEL KATANA is just as great as the DARKSABER. We have decided to start with BOTH the NEO PIXEL DARKSABER and the KATANA RUNS. The Katana is one of the first ORIGINAL Ripper Blade designs and by far the most popular Ripper Blade in stock. If you have already SIGNED UP for the NEO PIXEL DARKSABER RUN, we will also send you updates on the KATANA RUN.
We have several VIPs who are currently waiting for CUSTOM NEO PIXEL Ripper Blades. They will be taken care of FIRST and then we will open up CUSTOM NEO PIXEL slots to the public so START thinking about WHAT blade you are going to want Rip to make you. We value our past customers (VIPs) and hope YOU will join the Ripper Family in the near future.
We have been blessed to work with KAIZEN SABERS during his DARKSAI RUN a few years back and we will also be working with KAIZEN SABER during his DARKSAI V2 RUN which will be launching in a few weeks. The DARKSAI is the best built DARKSABER in the galaxy. Since we now have FIVE different versions of the Ripper Blade DARKSABER available (CLONE, V1, V2, BLACK ONYX and NEO PIXEL) do you think it is time WE MAKE a stock DARKSABER HILT? Is a RIPPER BLADE DARKSABER HILT in the works? YOU WILL HAVE TO CHECK BACK TO FIND OUT.............
ALL members of the Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club will receive 15% OFF all Ripper Blade DARKSABERS. Yes, even the NEO PIXEL Ripper Blade DARKSABER! Since we will have 5 different versions of the Darksaber to fit every budget, wouldn't it make sense to offer other products as well? Yes, I said products.....STAY TUNED for UPDATES.
If you don't know about the Madalorian Mercs Costune Club, you've been hiding under a rock. CHECK THEM OUT!
It seems EVERYONE is making neo pixel blades nowadays. The strips we use for these neo pixel flat blades are not the regular ones you can easily purchase from TCSS. I was able to finally contact a supplier this week and it looks like they will be able to send us the specific strips we need within a few weeks. The other suppliers were giving me an ETA between mid to late October. We will have enough strips to do the first round of neo pixel blades in about a month.
We finally received the CNC Laser Engraver we ordered. Unfortunately, after a week of setting it up and trying some cuts, we have decided to send her back. Too many issues and not the quality we expected. I am currently in the process of returning the one we have and purchasing another. This will delay the run by a few weeks unfortunately. I will have an update on the new CNC in two weeks.
I will have a PRE- ORDER date by the next update on SUNDAY, AUGUST 23rd. By then, we will know exactly when the new CNC will arrive and will likely have a tracking number for the first batch of strips. If the CNC is not here by the time the strips are, we will still open the RUN to pre-orders and will start making them by hand until the CNC arrives. The process will be a bit slower on our end but we plan on dedicating 3 days out of the week to work on this run. This will mean that we be able to ship out orders on a weekly basis.
Rip has decided to make the back end of the neo pixel Katana dark. Only the blade edge will light up. We will take custom orders if by chance you would like all edges on the Katana blade to light up
There are a few VIPs who have already made a deposit for their neo pixel Darksaber Rippers. Rip will start on those orders as soon as the strips come in. If by chance we do not have the new CNC by then, he will start making the cuts needed (reason we need the CNC) by hand. This will add a few hours to the build but we have decided it is the only way to go to make sure we move forward on this run with or without the help of the CNC. I will be sending out individual emails out to those who were placed on the FIRST ROUND of the VIP Pre-Order RUN.
