Hey, coincidentally convenient!  It was a perfect size platform for a padawan hilt.  Nice!

Funnily enough, I had actually just finished a lightsaber for a 6 year old when I proposed the challenge. :azn:  It used a similar finishing style as icon, so I didn't post it. :tongue:

Btw, I'm kind of guessing that it was Space. :cheesy:  I think that's his workbench. 

Here's my guess:
Canon - Iggy
Desert - Scott
Exo - Space
icon - me (correct)
Wetzlar - Steve
Young - Bomb

amirite?

You got 4/6 right,
May the force be with you all!

Remember... speak softly and carry a well constructed light saber! :)

I had space and eastern swapped.....I was happy to get any votes, and you had me right. Curious if it was based on the background in the one pic that was similar to the droid terminal shot I recently shared?  Or if East just used the force to get two thirds correct?

I’m sure will will discuss more tomorrow, but I was stunned by the exo, but the icon was my pick...I appreciate the intricate work, bu my style is small, sleek and simple (what I was going for with mine.)  I want an Icon!

Again, nice work all, and super fun...looking forward to the next one...toaster challenge?

Ah, must be Iggy and Steve.  I'm guessing Steve got a white board and a new phone since this summer.  Curses, I should have seen that.

Everyone else had definite tells. ;)  But I'll save that discussion for tomorrow.

My educated deductions were

Canon: ?
Desert: Scott- because the description mentioned a self printed chassis, that looked awfully like resin to my eyes, and Scott mentioned having a resin printer
Exo: Spaxar Winkundu-because neopixels everywhere
Icon: E57- I'd recognise that paint/powdercoat over metal foil tape anywhere
Wetzlar ?
Youngling: Bombarta- the shapeways chassis just reminded me of another one of his, but I can't recall which now.

Congrats to everyone, this was an awesome distraction from *waves at 2020 in general*

Right, break's over, back to my soldering iron.  :wink:
Better late than never.

On behalf of the staff, congratulations to the winner and all of the other participants of this contest as well.

I find your arguments vague and unconvincing.

Quiet! *Slap* And there’s a fresh one if you mouth off again.

Canyon was yours truly. I decided to throw something together one weekend, I just happen to have a flash laying around. It was fun to enter and thanks again FJK for hosting the contest. Congratulations to the winners, excellent work!

Realized Harris and I won late in the day when he called. Thank you to everyone who participated this was such a fun contest. I'm so excited for the turnout we got and the entries were all awesome. I guessed a few of the entrants such as Eastern's because of the layered over grip and 4-5 days into the contest I guessed Bombarta's, although I'm not sure why, I liked it very much and hoped it was Bomb's and then I deduced it must be his (Youngling). I'm surprised to find out JediSeth entered but I don't know if I would have guessed correctly on any of the others. Maybe let's do another one next year ending around the same time with a different theme. Very very fun times and it will continue tomorrow in the live stream I hope everyone can attend! Hopefully we picked a good time for everyone and we will stay on a while so drop in to check if we are still there if you're running late I'd love to see a nice FX-Sabers turnout at the live event. Let's discuss how we came up with these entries:

There is a rumor that FJK may have a contest up his sleeve......

Say Wha?!  Tricksey little memberses. :wink:  Great job, Seth, it was one of my votes.  Now that you're outed, I can see the tells, but without a tip that you're playing, I never would have guessed it was you.

P.s. is it Canon or Canyon?

Nice! I genuinely thought the Canon was Darth Chasm sneaking an entry in. It reminded me a lot of his DCLS 002, so much so that I figured he'd found a way to recreate it using vintage parts only.

Thanks again, Mr. Spacxar, you're a good host. :afro:
