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!
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
methos: Money can't buy happiness... but it can buy lightsabers, which is damn close

ZahcStarKiller: Yeah I have to agree. I just happened to stumble across spot #1 on the orbital machining Obi TPM run and had the opportunity to purchase it. That is pretty darn close to happiness.

ZahcStarKiller: djcbooks81, My collection is getting pretty fat as well. Three graflex, luke V2, Phoenix Props Kylo, Orbital Machining Obi, and a few custom sabers. Will be looking for a Qui Gon soon, and then I'll be starting to acquire every saber variant from the OT.

ZahcStarKiller: Then the PT. Must have a good Maul and a few clan sabers. The lady of the house just approved my idea of doing a cantina in one of our huge spare bedrooms, so I am starting a Hn in Carbonite (full size) this summer and will probably be starting an R2 also.
