As you can probably tell by the address of this blog (droidsimlookingfor) I'm a bit of a Star Wars fan! Growing up, my dad who is a Star Wars lover himself used to show me the Star Wars movies. As a young child, I didn't really think much of the movies and the story behind it. Guys with Red sabers were bad and guys with blue or green were good guys.
I have owned many toy lightsabers in my childhood, usually hitting everything I can with them. As I grew up and the prequels were made, I started to actually understand what was going on in the series. My love for Star Wars grew.
Last year, a few mates and I sat down at my house and enjoyed a 14 or so hour Star Wars marathon. Episodes 1-6... It was so epic! I enjoyed it so much, one of the best days of my life
Also, recently I have built my own lightsaber!!! Its made out of metal and has a strong LED light which goes up a blade. Cost me a fair bit (over $200 AUD) but its completely worth it. It even has sound.
I will go into detail about my saber later on. Ill do a series of blogs about my saber and how I made it etc.. I'm sure you guys will enjoy it.
