    What are the initial costs when attempting to build a custom saber by yourself?

    That is actually a good question. I am hoping it is not too expensive. I will be checking back on this thread for an answer.

    Considering most sell for $300+, I would guess it costs about $100 to make yourself. I am not certain on this, I have never tried but I am interested in it.
    Maybe contact someone online who has made one or several and ask what it costs to make one yourself.

    I seen something online about making one, I will have to find it. I think he said he built one that lights up (with no sound) for just under 100 pounds so whatever that would be in dollars.

    I would guess you can get one for as little as $20 or as expensive as a few hundred, depending on what you buy and use.
    Just like Dark said.. If you want it to light up, make sounds, ect, you will obviously be paying a lot more.

    I looked into it more and it is SO COMPLEX to make one that just lights up.
    Like it has to be able to withstand strikes and also flicker upon impact. Waaaay to much work for me! haha

    Really that sounds good. My problem is, I would want it to be all fancy and stuff and would likely end up disappointed with the results lol
    I used to hate legos because I was too fussy.

    Oh same. I know the complex ones that way more time. You need to know how to solder as well. lol I would likely burn off my toe attempting that... and yes, I meant to say my toe.
