Custom KOTOR inspired saber for Spaznick by Vader's Vault
« on: August 10, 2009, 10:13:29 PM »
Hellooooo Saberland! ;D

A few months ago we did a KOTOR inspired saber called the "Last Guardian". Fellow FX member "Spaznick" wanted one like it, but since we don't repeat exact designs, we made some....changes ;D here is the original: The Last Guardian - a KOTOR inspired saber by Fender' and Allaerra - page 1 - . We added a control box with a lighted anti-vandal switch, Brass strips in the slotted-milled lower grip, and made one of the indicator LEDs a flashing red. Sticking with the KOTOR theme, we didn't change the lines. This saber is awesome to hold in the hand, very comfortable. The Specs:

MHS based hilt, heavily modified
Translucent Gold Powdercoating on the upper grip with lathed grooves post PC
Activation box with lighted anti-vandal switch
One purple static and one Red flashing accent LEDs
FX Jedi Board
Luxeon III Cyan Bin 1
4.8v Ni-Mh battery pack with in hilt recharge system
Brass stock inlaid in the milled lots on lower grip

LOVE IT! You two are amazing. That thing looks like it was built for royalty.
I’d glad that I’m not alone, deep within the dork forest.

Congrats on yet another fantastic saber! To me, it is the attention to detail and marrying many elements that make Vader's Vault sabers stand out as Tops among our community.

This saber is a perfect example of how even when individual parts may be identifiably familiar a bit of creativity and attention to detail can lift the finished saber to a whole new level that is quite beyond the sum of its parts...well done!
To DREAM the IMPOSSIBLE DREAM. To FIGHT the unbeatable foe. To BEAR with unbearable sorrow. To RUN where the brave dare not go. To RIGHT the unrightable wrong. To LOVE, PURE AND CHASTE, FROM AFAR [-sigh-]. To TRY, when your arms are too weary; to REACH the unreachable Star!... This is my Quest; To follow that Star, no matter how hopeless, no matter how far...
