We are excited to bring you The Return of the Flex!!!
We heard you, we were listening, we just needed time.
The quality of fit and finish is truly refreshing, and the accuracy mods that already come on this new hilt eliminate the frustrating need to purchase them elsewhere. Things like the molded rubber grips instead of plastic, correct color/material red button, the flat beer tab, better bunny ears, charge port tab, REAL glass eyes. The list goes on.
Our version of course, like before, is a 1" bladed saber. The top main button is the activation, and the side tab is a sliding momentary switch, also a much improved solution for a secondary switch. The body is much like a vintage in that it is the J-lock design, so no threaded body and pommel insert like on the previous version. This meant that we had to move away from our Combat Class style chassis and into a set up more akin to our Hero and VDR product. A robust, and solid slug of machined Delrin make up the internal chassis of this Standard model (crystal reveal chassis is coming later on) allowing ease of access to the battery, and the SD card. It also adds a comforting heft to the saber adding to that nostalgic realism.
For the first time on the Flex, we will also be offering a version specific HD quality soundfont from JuanSith!

I saw the original trilogy in the theaters when I was a kid, but the one that stands out to me was The Empire Strikes Back. Not only was I shocked -deeply and fundamentally - by the twist, but I also dreamed for years about how I could find a lightsaber like Luke's and have the training to become a Jedi Knight.
My mom bought me an Empire Strikes Back coloring book and one page of it had the most rudimentary drawing of Luke's Graflex-based lightsaber. I made my first saber out of black and white construction paper, rolled up for the hilt, with an emitter and bunny ears. I carried that hilt with me everywhere for months and maybe years (I wish I still had it). I had countless adventures with that lightsaber.
Fast forward a few decades and getting a Flex v2 is as close as possible to getting Luke's lightsaber as I ever felt was possible. Turns out that I can still run around the house with my lightsaber having the same adventures I had when I was a kid.
The saber itself is amazing. It's super solid with the heft i would've expected from a real lightsaber. The craftsmanship is superb. It's not flawless, but the small blemishes (a few scratches, especially on the bunny ears, a misaligned Graflex stamp and Kobold ring on the bottom) add to the charm to me. This lightsaber was used in the films and having it be used by me adds to its charm. The sound is amazing; I've already spent hours investigating CFX and how to configure it. The blade is bright and super consistent (Neopixel/Plecter Pixel).
I was lucky enough to receive mine through a Ready to Ship Sale (May the 4th, 2020), but even if I had to wait months, this would have been worth it.
Thank you, Vader's Vault for fulfilling a childhood dream!
This is my second saber from VV after the Hero (Luke's saber in ROTJ), and I couldn't be any happier.
Awesome customer service, even when I had to change my address a couple of times due to my situation.
The New Flex is as fantastic as it could be. The screen accuracy, the weight, the electronics, the chassis, the installed soundfonts, and the default colour choice for my ANH version were all masterfully done. With the Plecter Pixel installed, I am proudly say, "This is THE weapon of a Jedi Knight!"
Received it today and all I can say is that it's perfect. Perfect quality, a pleasant weight, high details and a crystal clear sound.
Honestly blown away at the quality of this product. the sounds, the weight and the feel of this lightsaber makes me feel like I'm in Obi Wan Kenobi's hut about to have my life changed for the better! I am glad I splurged on all the features of this bad boy and I can't wait to add more to my collection!
