This is an Arm on Fire Custom Sabers Vertical Saber Stand – Rebel Bird Design. As a disclaimer, Arm on Fire Custom Sabers sent me this stand for free in order to review. Arm on Fire Custom Saber is based in the United States.
I haven’t seen this ‘sword-in-the-stone’ style of vertical lightsaber stand before. When the hilt is attached to the stand, it gives the effect that the lightsaber blade is popping out of the ground.

Arm on Fire Custom Sabers currently makes two vertical saber stand designs: Rebel Bird or Imperial Cog (see the SaberSourcing Imperial Cog Lightsaber Stand review here). The Rebel Bird stand is inspired by Rebel logo. Rebel Bird either comes in red or blue.
The Rebel Bird lightsaber stand is comprised of two pieces: a sturdy resin base and a cylindrical section of blade stock. The stand arrives disassembled and requires very easy assembly. Simply attach the blade stock section to the hole in the center of resin base.
The entire base forms an attractively large and bold representation of the Rebel logo. The base is sturdy and solid. It’s always a good idea to look for a stable base, especially on vertical lightsaber stands because you don’t want your lightsaber to tip over. The section of blade stock is made of plastic and is 4 inches long and about 1 inch in diameter. The Rebel Bird stand is designed for lightsaber hilts that accommodate a 1 inch diameter blade.
Since no lightsaber stand is complete without a lightsaber, let’s demo the Rebel Bird stand with a Sabertrio Arclyte. It’s easy to display a hilt on the stand. All you need to do is flip the hilt upside down and slid the lightsaber hilts blade socket over the blade stock section of the Rebel Bird stand. You can tighten the lightsaber’s blade retention screw in order to secure the lightsaber hilt to the Rebel Bird stand.
I really like the vertical presentation of the lightsaber hilt on this stand. The lightsaber hilt looks like it’s stuck in the floor, much like the sword in the stone concept in Arthurian legend. The display method of the Rebel Bird stand is also reminiscent of the early scene in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace when Qui-Gon Jinn uses his lightsaber to cut through the blast doors on the Trade Federation vessel.
Arm on Fire Custom Sabers is a United Stated based custom saber company. The company sells vertical lightsabers stands and lightsaber hilts and also accepts commissions on lightsaber projects.
