Lightsaber: Part 2

I'm back again guys! Time to write more about my beloved lightsaber.

So, for a few weeks I 'lurked' The Custom Saber Shop's forums. I tried to familiarise myself with the whole Saber building process. A neat little thing on the website is the "MHS Builder". MHS stands for Modular Hilt System which is pretty much just the part where you hold your saber. Its a little flash app that opens in your browser and it allows you to select certain Saber Shop parts and put them together and help you decide what you actually want to build.

So I went ahead and built it. I thought it was a flawless design so I posted it on the forums and got a pretty negative response. My saber just wouldn't work. I ended up designing it to be around 17 inches long with is way too big just for the hilt. And the parts just wouldn't fit together. I had a long way to go yet. I was still a noob...

  

My first design.

In the next edition I'll show you my 2 final designs that I had to choose from and which design I chose and why.

Also, here is a link to the MHS builder so you guys can play around a little: http://forums.thecustomsabershop.com/mhsbuilder/mhsbuilder.php

  8. your picture isn't working but it's still an interesting idea. i didn't know there were specifications that they couldnt handle. so i'm guessing a darth maul edition is out of reach?
