Force Relics presents: The Star Wars - Dark Side
« on: October 11, 2014, 12:51:47 PM »

A Blend of props and Pop Culture



Hi Everyone,

Last year, Dark Horse Comics started publishing a comic adaptation of George Lucas' original script, called "The Star Wars". When we saw the first images of the characters and their sabers, we just HAD to build our own versions. So as soon as we got our hands on a couple of copies of the comics, we started drawing up plans and ideas.
Today, we are proud to present the first saber in a series of 4, all built on the same base design.
We call this one "The Dark Side" because it is based on a sith-like character that is only seen on the first pages of the first book. The only reference images we had, are the ones below.

This saber has a tri-rebel RRW main LED and a CS2 sound board.

The reference:




The glams:

Any thoughts, comments : feel free to post :)

Take care,
The Force Relics Team

Wow, these are all going to be so unique! I absolutely love that etching pattern, one day I hope to have the shroud on my GCS Ascend etched like that! I also really like the elements of the Obi TPM on the emitter, very neat.

You guys at FR have really been busy lately, I can't wait to see the rest of this lineup!!

Very elegant design. The acid etching looks really refined on this one. I think this saber has your best acid etch work to date!

I was wondering when someone was going to tackle this one. Bravo guys. You do it justice, just like everything else you create.

That's a beauty. The detail on the etching is great. I'd give it 2 thumbs up.

Thanks for the kind words everyone!

The etching on this one was challenging, but worth it. We learned a lot doing this one.

Truly a work of art  :o  8)
Praise be the order brought forth from the very edge of chaos.

I second that...another slam-dunk home-run he-shoots-he-scores goooooal!

I particularly like the graceful curve of the 'windows' on the emitter that reflects the Obi TPM influence but in an even more elegant fashion than the Obi-emitters straight line cutouts...superb detail...and that etching is just exquisite.

BRAVO! Can't wait to see the next one!
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...
