Do you like the idea of having Star Wars Elements made by BF? Mando Helms, Jetpacks, Clone Trooper Helmets, Jedi stuff?

Okay, really, who wouldn't want Star Wars elements from BF?

Custom lightsaber hilts could be very lucrative...

No, and for good reason. I've actually spoke with Armothe about how customizors and vendors find their niche and excel at it. And while BrickForge can in their own right make custom stuff from any theme, they also thnk about the market of said product. Star Wars is a popular line to market off of, but lets face, everyone does Star Wars. I try to look for customs on ebay and all I see is Star Wars this and Star Wars that. How can you stand out in a crowd like that? And lets not forgot that 2 prominent customizors (and also vendors) are best known for making SW stuff: Arealight (Armor) and Little Armory (Guns). They pretty much nailed it.

And to be honest, and no offense to anyone, but I am sick of seeing SW. It is all I see everywhere.

You have a very good point there, and let us not forget Eclipsegrafx's lightsaber hilts.

True, but I like Brickforge for their cheap prices. The stores you've listed sell theirs a bit overpriced. I like Brickforge because their prices are actually worth it, and not underpriced either. I would 100% support Brickforge releasing some Star Wars themed custom pieces. Just my 2 cents.

Arealight isn't overpriced, I can tell you that. It just makes up for the shipping, considering he ships overseas from Asia. And when comparing his international shipping with BF's, BF is more.

Say I live in Canada. I order a helmet from BF. It costs $1.50 with $5.96 as shipping. That is a total of $7.46. Now if I bought a helmet from Arealight, it would be $2.50 with $5.00 as shipping. That is a total of $7.50. Now here is where it gets interesting. BF has a minimum amount to buy in order place an order, and that is $10. That means if I want that helmet from BF, I'd have to tack $2.50 worth of items to my cart. Arealight does not have minimum requirement, so I'd still be spending $7.50.

Plus you have to take into consideration that it isn't cheap to make custom stuff, especially when it is done by hand (talking about eclipsegrafx). This is the one thing that most people seem to not realize.

Also interesting how you said BF is cheap, since apparently people think it is pricey itself. Of course then again, it is these same people that generally get crap for free from "other" guys. :P
