So I finally got the install done on my Graflex 2.0 I have been working on. This saber was a scratch/dent kit from TCSS and was made actually to go with my Ancient weapon font. Essentially, this is a "what if" saber from an alternative ANH where Han is the force sensitive one and not Luke. So I built the saber and the font around the concept of what would happen if Han received a Graflex and then maintained it and "upgraded" it as he did to the falcon. The paint is modeled after the falcon and there is some age to the saber. As Han rewired the saber to improve it, he ended up overheating it and he cut some venting into the grip. It has the following:
Graflex 2.0 scratch/dent from TCSS Tri-Cree EXP-2 Red orange/Red orange/White (FoC) - the falcon's cannons are redish NBv 3 18650 3.7v battery from TCSS 28mm premium speaker from TCSS 3D printed chassis with illuminated (red 3mm led) crystal chamber (real quartz) Red TCSS graflex card Wanawanga ROTJ graflex lever (push to activate the saber) Two of my custom fonts: Ancient Weapon and Legendary Princess
Pics - they are not perfect, but I tried! :grin:
Thanks for looking!

Thanks everyone for the kind words. This is actually my second Graflex 2.0. The first one I built was a really frustrating process as I wanted it to be as accurate as possible to TFA. Needless to say, the build got really expensive really quick! This one was so much more fun to build as I wasn't limited to what was "cannon." Thanks everyone!
ARKM: Happy birthday rblscm!

ARKM: Happy eclipsemageddon day! I live in Oregon within the path of totality. The sun should be fully eclipsed here at 10:19am PDT.

ARKM: If I don't get super powers from this, I'm going to be very disappointed. Crap! I'm going to be very disappointed.

ARKM: The eclipse was cool. It got really dark during totality. I don't think I got any super powers though... wait. I may have x-ray vision... I can see through my retina.
