Gemini Concepts Presents : FATE! A Crystal Focus 4.3 saber
« on: August 20, 2010, 06:07:15 PM »
FATE
MHS based components powdercoated Trans RED
double shrouded
1 MHS sleeve Powdercoated in Mirror Black
1 SinkTube Sleeve, sanded down to brass finish a powdercoated clear
Blue Dot Illuminated momentary
Red Ring Illuminated momentary
Real Quartz Crystal in chamber with Hi-power Blue accent
CF4.3 in crystal chamber
TCSS premium speaker.
P4 Blue Main LED
JayGon Jinn 7.4v custom battery pack


This is a custom hilt for MR Greenburg, who found us on Youtube a few months back, and requested a Gemini Saber. Master Jedeye went to work with a diagram and Here is the end result. Mutiple shrouds, mutiple colors and "hopefully", a whole lotta WIN!

The CF soundboard was slated to be just below the battery pack, ...but towards the end of the build, we figured it would be cool to let the CF serve as a backdrop to the crystal chamber.
So witha  little tinkering, some patience, some hot glue and some poly-p sheeting, it was complete.

Most people probably wont care what's in it, ...but those who love getting a glimpse of the insides, will clearly see the CF4.3 in the crystal chamber.


Special thanks to Jay-Gon Jinn, (QGJ) for the custom battery pack, and Ri-On Ozyrel for the quartz crystal.

Haven't even watched the video yet, but wow...just wow, that color combination is just sick, makes me want to break out my michael jackson thriller jacket and go hack through a bunch of zombies while listining to 'love is a battlefield' (which I think is by Pat benetar?)


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

I thought it had a "iron man" feel to it.

 Just the red/black/gold combo with a ribbed section reminded me too much of micheal jackson's thriller jacket.

The font really adds a cybernetic iron man feel to it though :) win win

I'm with you. Shamon!

Well done to Chewie and MJ (theres another reason for the Michael Jackson comments).

Really great design.  I would think red to be too bold a color choice but I think these colors look great. Awesome work.

I am the the soon to be proud owner of FATE.  Master Jedye and CHEWBACCA are amazingly talented and I couldn't be happier with the result!  I spoke with Master Jedye a couple of times and he could not be a nicer person. They have a customer for life.  


Thanks guys,

Vader: Luke, I am you father.
Luke: Thats not true! Thats impossible!
Vader: And Princess Leia is your sister.
Luke: Thats not true! That's.....improbable.
Vader: And the Empire will be defeated by Ewoks.
Luke: Thats...very unlikely.
Vader: And as a child, I build C-3PO.
Luke: Huh? Look if youre not gonna take this seriously, I'm out.!
