Been a while I haven’t posted anything… lot of DRLs. Anyway, here is a build Vektor and I did for Xmas, which was given as a gift to a good friend of mine. Apart from the pommel, everything else is from scratch. Thanks again to Vektor
It’s an Asohka inspired design at the start, but it’s still a quite unique saber in the end. First time to try Prizm as well, very easy to install and setup and it’s a pretty cool board.
- Custom hilt with salt water etched Celtic patterns, black paint and gold vinyl adhesive (collaboration between Vektor and I) - 3D printed activation box, “bunny” ears, chassis / sled and stand (with my home printer) – X-4 RGGB main Led - 1 RGB accent Led as faux Crystal Chamber – Prizm soundboard – Removable single 18650 Cell - Main power and speaker on/off switches on the chassis – 2W Bass Speaker – Turbine blade plug – 7/8? blade
Full build log and hi-rez pics can be seen on my website, too long to post them here
Thanks for watching, Cheers

That turned out insanely great, awesome work! I'm loving the strong black elements and the smaller brass/gold accents, not to mention the battery compartment structure. Also the PRIZM looks & sounds great!
"It's not very good, wasn't cheap either... But I made it myself!"
I'm actually sad to had to let this saber go, but that's nothing compared to my friend over-excitement when she received it (which is still a bit surprising from a non SW fan lol... but that's where I see the Lightsabers we build are more than just a franchise goodies hehe)
Next scratch build, I'm going to try more 3D printed elements
GK45: Prolly for the best, my Wisdom Tooth has decided it doesn't like my mouth and has begun seceding little by little and I can't get it pulled for another month yet so sugar isn't my best friend right now...not that it is stopping me.

darthsquidious: I haven't had cake since I was 5, and interestingly I kept all my wisdom teeth. Correlation?

rickyricer: That feeling when you're constantly updating USPS to see where your saber is

GK45: Supposedly they know how many times you've checked a tracking number and laugh at you.

scarecrow: Then they've gotten more than a few laughs on my behalf. I'm probably their Sam Kinison.
