Here it is, Folks.... the second themed saber of 2010 from Gemini Concepts!

THE EMERALD KNIGHT


Logan approached us about a month ago wanting a Green Lantern Themed saber. 
Being a big GL & DC fan myself, I jumped at it.  The minute I read his PM, I had
tons of ideas for this one.  With Logan's guidance, we exchanged a few renders and
got started on it.

The saber is running a Master Replica's Darth Maul board with a 6v battpack to a LuxIII
green LED and 2 ultrabrite green accent LED's which shine on a quartz crystal (provided
by Ri-On Ozryel). The MHS pieces are PC'd in Black Magic and the shrouds are handcut, each
with a vintage GL logo and PC'd in Green Transmetal.

The illuminated green ring black latching switch was purchased from a local PC shop and
I think we fit it in the design nicely.  The total length of the saber is 13.5 inches long and
the MJ MHS sleeve really balances out the saber. 

Special thanks to Arkai Halon for the special GL saber stand and bladeplug disk.

As Kilowog would say... " 'Nuff talkin'!"

On to the pics...

First, the render...


Now, the glam shots...



















And of course... the video!

Thank you all for looking and Thank you JKL!
We'll be testing this one out for a few days and then it'll hit the mail!

Man this saber is full of 'win'.  I love how the switch looks like the green lantern symbol, as well as the light up effects that appear like it as well.  Definetly a fun saber to own. 

Congradulations to the owner.


Time will bring the real end of our trial.  One day they'll be no remnants

This one was pretty fun, I always enjoy tasking around with crystals.

Good bit of hilt room in this one!

I'm sure the owner will be pleased!!

Gentlemen, this is such a beautiful saber! Once again, you've outdone yourselves!

 :o Another well executed concept saber. The pc colors look great! Nice flow on the shroud. I love how you incorporated the GL logo into it and used the lighted A/V switch to illuminate it.

Bravo!!

Arkai did a fantastic job on the stand and plug too.

Green lantern saber FTW!!!  As a huge DC fan I can't even begin to describe how awesome this saber is. And that Stand and emitter plug are out of control cool. Great work to all involved.

Super cool saber. 8) Makes me eager for my blue one. ;D
