Thank you for posting this for me Luke :)

Yes the Larbel EL now Goes Luxeon LED...
Much brighter than any EL and a rare addition to my Luxeons.

I've checked other places and I do believe this is the First one to be done so far ;)

It requires having a Larbel Hilt with the Parks electronics already installed so you get
all the right sizes for mounting the components in there.
It also uses a fitted on/off switch that you'll re use.
What I did is cut down the EL "stalk" and fit an LED on a heatsink with an adapter
tube around it, to keep it all in place.
It is powered by 4 AAAs down in the hilt which left no real room for a MR sound board but
you could get one in there if you used a smaller Lithium battery possibly.
I test fit a board I have and it's okay but it's still very crowded and no where to easily get the
sound "out" of the hilt with out serious drilling into that solid pomel.
and I didn't want to ruin it experimenting so...

... I've got more than enough sound making sabers around anyway and let this be a quiet but brightly
lit Saber I can turn on in the middle of the night with out waking anyone up.

Well except for that Blue Glow coming from my back yard :D

Enjoy the Pict and as of course...

May The Force Be With You
always
YODA

Fantastic looking saber,Yoda.  8)
The standard of the craftsmanship looks superb. Very impressive.
I wish MR would make the Obi-Wan TPM saber, it is definately one of my favourite designs.  ;)
I suppose I will have to wait quite sometime before that happens, though.   :(
It's a shame you couldn't get sound into it, but you could always figure out a way to do that later on.
Will you be making any more to sell, BTW?

All Larbels were sent to parks for electronics installation.
I'm working on the adapter to convert those to LEDs but they may not all be the same , hence it will
make for a lot of "custom" applications.

The Quigon will be most difficult :P but will be attempted eventually.
The Obiwan as you can see worked well and has plenty of possibilities for improvement with sound etc...
But it's not easy and that translates to expensive.

Oh and todd... mind tricks don't work on me, I'm YODA :D LOL

Thanks for the Compliments... I wasn't easy but it came together well and is very durable now 8)
