This saber has been hand crafted from the hilt to the segmented LED string. More, the guy even programmed the the saber board with help of a friend. Possibly the most screen accurate Luke EPVI saber ever, and definitely the brightest one! Anthony, this you will like I know!

Made in Germany :)

The guy made this saber after doing a lot of research, he even analyzed the movie picture by picture to mimic exactly the same flickering as seen in there. He went back to the roots, this saber is built up with segmented LED strings, and you will recognize that to obtain the same flickering as in the movie he programmed each of the 6 segments with an individual pattern. Since he made the hilt himself, as well as the blade LED string and programmed the effect on his own, it can be considered a true Jedi's weapon: fully self constructed, a real rarity and an excellent execution!

Looks awesome! Very real effect and bright! Hilt looks great, too. This is using DIYino that he programmed?




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

Great work here!  It's fun playing with different ignition and flicker styles.

Yes, I know that he programmed the screen accurate flicket himself, which is - although he did not piblish the code - probably a sequence of PWM values stored in the program flash. The board is a DIYino Prime, since he crams in an aweful amount of LEDs I was told, he made a custom PCB using MOSFETs with higher current ratings and a serial II setup.
