Sorry about the multiple posts, it wouldn't let me last more than one photo per post on my phone.

So COOL!!
Don't mind about the posts, whatever works. :)

WOW. Both are amazing. And a Vader display to boot!? That is sweet.

What is your Vader saber? Black series? I'm about to buy one of those, if I can find one.

Oh, and out of curiosity, how/why did you pick ESB Vader? Just personal favorite? Parts easier, cheaper or more common?

ESB is my favorite Star Wars film so that's why I went ESB. MY saber is one of the 2005 MR sabers that I gutted and installed a spark 2 sound board and red tri-cree LED, much brighter than a stock Fx saber.

I have a hard time picking a fav Vader. Each one has so many uniquely cool items.

So nice. I can tell it is BRIGHT on the first two pics, glowing on the neck even with full room lights. The dark side is strong with this one! ;)

neopixel saber... very interesting. I've discussed using Adafruit items with another for an improved Cylon eye.
