Too true, Master Knucle, too true.


In the interest of expanding the coverage of my customs, as had been requested in the previous thread, I'm posting these shots of my Obi apprentice saber.  I took them a few weeks back, and can offer more if there is any interest (as with any of my collection).

It was made by Luuke of thelightsaber.com fame, and might just have been his last saber project ever, sad to say.


Why do you say that that might be his last saber, what happened to thelightsaber.com?

Luuke's said that thelightsaber.com will be back soon, but he's retiring from the custom business.  Shame too, he had some great looking ones in the works for this year.

He's focusing on other projects; his site, and this intriguing modular prop display system.  And he wanted to spend more time on his real job and with his family (doing a saber run is time consuming I'm sure).

There was a third empty saber space when I last updated my complete collection that might have been hard to notice as there was a saber in the same case.
(As always click on the thumbnail for a full-sized shot)

Now that it's in there my latest addition is quite hard to miss.

As you might gather from the black plaque this is indeed a custom, made by Roman of Roman's Empire productions.

That is an FX end cap crystal in there to complete the BD maul effect.  And from this pic you can see the angled cut.

I may do some more work on this one later, but even as it is it looks great to my eye with it's big brother from MR.

And here is one more look now with the cover of the Kodofett case I'd picked up for it.


(More to come, soon.)

Ooh that roman empire saber looks nice.  I was thinking of getting one when people were dropping out, but I've decided to keep trying to finish my mini collection first.

Thanks to Darth Nerdold for the sig!

(More to come, VERY soon.)

Roman's BD Maul run did really did turn out great, I'm thrilled with mine.

I don't have time to properly elaborate but let me say quickly that my modified quote is quite accurate.  But I'll save that for later. ::)

(No more empty display cases for me!  ;D )

When I started this thread again a few weeks back I quite nonchalantly left in this picture of two empty kodofett cases holding a prominent location in my collection.  This was because I was expecting the addition to my collection that arrived today.
(As always click on any of my thumbnails to see a full-sized picture.)



This is how my shelf stands now:

On the right you see my previously featured Mara Jade-Skywalker saber from Union.


And then on the left are my two new additions.

The first, is Mara's Saber from the Jedi Knight expansion set Mysteries of the Sith.

I really love that brass emitter detail.

Then we have Mara's saber from the By the Emperor's Hand.





Both of these sabers were custom made by The Master Sabersmith Oz.  They are truly remarkable to behold, but beyond that, they are special to me as they round out my Mara saber collection, something I've been pursuing for some time.  I cannot properly express the feelings of owning these truly amazing pieces, let alone how nice it is to share my Mara Saber collection. ;D

Though mine is the most complete Mara saber collection I've heard of, thelightsaber.com actually listed two more Mara sabers, one from a short comic story that I've kind of disregarded and then another from EH that was exactly like the king of ugly Vader ROTJ.  I already have plans for the Vader CE and that one. ;)
