Reaching back into a distant time, a hero became a villain, then redeemed again. His raw power and command has yet to be matched and his signature dual weapons with crimson red, and rich purple blades struck fear and awe into friend and foe alike. You know his masked face, you know his name, and you want his power. Well.....at least you can have his sabers. This is the Vader's Vault REV-N. Sharing the same features made popular by our other Combat Class sabers like the super slim form factor, top notch industry leading lighting tech and the famous Plecter Labs providing sound and control, the REV-N is the best choice for this popular design. Available in a variety of accent colors, and weathering.

I ordered the Rev-N Elite in RGB, with chocolate brown leather wrap and gold accents and button, back in May 2016. It arrived in December.
A week short of seven month's wait. I have to say, the time flew by, it feels like I ordered it yesterday tbh. I know to many it will be a long wait. It is worth every second.
Unwrapping it from the packing made me catch my breath. I was instantly struck by how beautiful it was, and the shine of the light on the surface (even in standard finish it is gorgeous). The next thing that hit me was how light it was, how comfortably it fitted in my hand. It felt like it was barely there at all! I've had some nice sabers before, but this was lighter than my uninstalled graflex or uninstalled KR Hero, even with the blade in. Once I put the blade in, it felt like an extension of me. No weight, perfect balance.
My hands and wrists aren't strong, my previous duelling hilt had a tendency to get uncomfortable after a short while, and spins and slashes felt heavy and deliberate. I felt like I was overreaching a lot, and overcorrecting to try and keep it balanced. Not so with this saber. This feels fast, responsive, precise, and I can spin and swing without any strain or tiredness in my wrist at all. My old stunt feels ungainly and cumbersome by comparison.
The colours are vibrant. I didn't love all of them, but it's easy to tweak the settings of the ones you don't like. For instance I found the yellow a little pale and the green a little less vibrant than I preferred, but after a few minor adjustments they became two of my favourites.
Magenta is astounding. I cannot emphasise this enough. It is one of the brightest of the colours, and it feels special somehow; we're used to blues, greens and reds, but there's something striking about magenta. It also fits with the Rev-N theme too. If you can't choose between colours, go RGB. If you're looking for a colour that's a little more unique than the common reds, green and blues, the TORange, cyan and magenta are divine. Classic girl going with the pink saber :P
The Rev-N font is amazing. It's a perfect fit for the hilt. It sounds very different to the other fonts, there's a sort of high-pitched hum that sounds like a howl. When I was young my bedroom window could never quite fully close, and during storms when the wind really got going it rushed through the tiny gap and made this high-pitched, hissing wailing sound. That hum in the sound font reminds me of the wind back then. This font sounds violent, aggressive, unstable, and frightening; it sounds like a weapon. All the fonts are excellent, but the Rev-N one feels special to me in a way the others don't.
Sound is very loud, very clear, and very responsive.
All in all, I am 100% happy with it. Customs taxes charged me £116 (UK buyer), no doubt Brexit helped raise that a bit. That's the Government's fault, not VV's, and my wallet wept. But it was totally worth it, hands down. To me, the saber is worth more than what I paid, to get something like this from another sabersmith would have cost much more than it did.
It looks beautiful, graceful, and refined. It sounds vicious and deadly. It feels poised, precise, balanced; it feels like a weapon that was made to fit my hand. Ben Kenobi referred to a lightsaber as an "elegant weapon". I can't think of a better description.
Stellar service and customer support from VV as expected, wonderful people with a true artistic gift for this craft.
This saber is a work of art.

Wow! This is insanely cool. I love this saber. Perfect dueler and great shelf queen. The employees and owners of this business, truly give a damn.... And it shows in their exceptional results. My RevN is my baby, Thank you VV

My Rev-N Elite was fairly customized, and to say it was worth every penny I paid and every second I waited would be an understatement. The craftsmanship and care put into this saber is almost palpable. As a consumer and fellow small business owner, Vader's Vault has rightfully earned my future business.

I have ordered sabers from other saber companies before, but never have I received a saber quite like this. My black chrome and gold RevN elite is by far the best saber I own. The speaker is louder the blade is brighter and more evenly lit than the other guys. The customer service i received was excellent as well. I cannot wait to order from Vaders vault again.

Ordered a custom version, it came out better than I expected. It's gorgeous. Love this saber. Swinging my Hasbro/Disney after getting this one just doesn't cut it anymore. Some of the design elements do protrude. If you want a pure functional spinner, other models may be better for you. But I didn't want a metal tube with light, I wanted a light saber! It fits me perfectly, I've found MY saber.

The saber itself is perfect. Obviously, theses guys know theire job. the quality is really highter than "insert competitor's name here".
But I must put a bad point on the communication. I had to wait 8 months. The waiting itself isn't a problem but when the FAQ talks about 3 months, you start to worrie a bit. More, the website do not give you a lot of information about the progression. But don't worry, your saber is between trustworthy hands and obviously, my saber was not botched at all.
And a last point, It would be better if you was able to respond each messages.
Seriously VV, you are the best in this buisness. Just show it!
(I hestitated to put 4 stars for the communication, but I could definitely not rate 4/5 this product.)

Although the wait exceeded the original time-frame by several months. It was definitely worth waiting. The quality is mesmerizing, to the point where I almost want to leave it on the display stand and not use it - akin to a museum item.

I ordered a Rev-n Elite lightsaber from Vader's Vault with heavy weathering, sun-crusher red, black leather wrap and black accents. As far as the saber goes, I couldn't be happier!!! The sound is great, the lights and clash effects are amazing, and the over-all quality is outstanding, however, it did take around 5 months to arrive. This was a bit tough for me, and got me worried a little that this might be made in china, but once you get your saber in your hands, there's no doubt that Vader's Vault are true to their words. You will see that i only put 4 stars for this product, but that is only bacause of the long wait-time. If I were to review just the saber, It would be a definite 5 stars! If you do end up getting a lightsaber from here though, be sure to opt for the sun-crusher LED, because they are amazingly bright and worth the price. Now keep in mind that these are quite expensive, but if you have the money, and really want a great piece for whatever reason, than go for it because your paying for quality, and this is truly the best you can get!!!

This just blew me away...i cant believe just how amazing this saber really is. I love how small it is and the way it fits in my hand and yet it is so much more to the internals. everything was nicely packed and with higher end electronics than some of the sabers i have bought in the past. Truly a masterpiece of a saber. I am so glad i bought two. thank you again Vadersvault for making my dreams of a perfect Revan saber come to life.
