    Jun 17, 2013, 1:01 PM - 24K GOLD Obi-Wan Kenobi ANH 'BLING' Lightsaber Build #1

    Many years ago I had a request for 3 hilts to match the MR .45 scale display. AFBB, easy. Weathered, piece of cake!

    But the GOLD?!?!?

    I got it done (in real 24K), but don't think I ever posted pics. So while working on my site this morning I ran across these pictures and thought I'd share. So, go grab your sunglasses and enjoy!!

    Yeah, at the time I thought it was beautiful, but a bit silly. Now I'm wishing I had one!

    Yes, it's gold-plated

    I think Master Replicas did a set of gold sabers that I think we're auctioned off years ago.
    That is absolutely beautiful Roman! You continually amaze me with your work.

    Obi Wan himself would be jealous.
    Wish I could own one of these.

    Outstanding work!

    You could always throw in some brass next time you get parts made and polish it up.

    Yeah, I bet Old Ben lived up in the mountains, because he was really mining for GOLD to build his sabers... not watching over Luke!!

    Wonderful craftsmanship Roman but I guess I'm the only one that thinks this looks god awful. It could be that I'm just not a fan of AFBB in general.

    No... I have mixed feelings, too!
