M2019 Saber: a lightsaber inspired by an iconic gun
« on: October 12, 2018, 12:30:35 AM »
Hello Saberfans!
Today, I completed a build I've been working on over the past half year. That's why I'm so proud of this little special project.
2 of my favourite sci-fi movies combined: Star Wars and Blade Runner.
I present to you: the M2019 Saber

Specs:
- Completely custom machined aluminium main body
- Custom made and blued steel sleeve
- Resin cast amber grip sculpted by me and cast by Soulinertia
- Metal 3D printed lever and switch box, powdercoated
- Plecter Labs Crystal Chard 4.0
- 9W RGB main LED
- Saber essentials 24mm bass speaker
- 3.7v li-ion battery in hilt rechargable with 2.1mm charge port

Comments? Shoot!

I received a lot of back lash regarding the amber grip on social media, but to me, it wouldn't be a Blade Runner saber without it. It's not the most comfy grip out there for a saber, but that was never the intention. I wanted to build a hommage to the gun, not make a fierce and handy duelling saber. This is an artistic experiment, more than it is a functional cosplay item.

I don't know why but that design is growing on me lol
I think it 100% captures the spirit of Blade Runner Blaster  :smiley:

Really like the "barrel" portion. Great idea.

Fuggedaboud the h8ers the amber grip is an inspired artistic choice for the theme and the whole saber really captures the 'spirit' of a (lightsaber) Blade Runner...and I particularly like the 'bolt handle' accent...BRAVO!

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...

Ooof!! I love it.

Lightsabers aren't supposed to be 'comfortable'. Tell those social media doofuses that if they want comfort... buy a pillow!

The original lightsaber is not meant for comfort it's meant for... (I was going to say 'killing' but no... it wasn't meant for killing lol it just ended up killing a lot of kids...)




I'm afraid the deflector shield with be quite operational when your friends arrive.

The only thing I can see this improving is if you polished the grip to clear / gloss finish:)
