This looks so great! I have to admit, having the batteries in the handle does leave this as a striking demonstration
Thank you. I know it‘s not screen accurate, like Halliwax‘ beautiful „Legend Edition“ saber. But hey, if they really used two or three different Obi sabers for the duel, perhaps there was one which worked with a battery in the handle ;)

Did some more „testing“ with my balsa stunt blade today and started to hit another rod with it. Interestingly, the bending of the blade looked very similar to what we can see on screen. That balsa blade is tougher than I thought initially.

Without you guys this project would still be spinning in my head – thank you so much for your continuous inspiration and support.

Although we still don’t know if the original V3 lightsaber was ever equipped with a motor and mechanics inside, it’s really cool to see my V3 lightsaber replica next to the ANH special effects lightsaber replica:

Hope you enjoyed my journey as much as I did!

You have left me breathless with your stunning work! The most entertaining reading of 2020, by far!!
Is there any chance you would kindly make and sell me one of these please, or if not, perhaps just the 3D print or the aluminium blanks?
I would make one myself, but unfortunately, only have one arm since an accident in 2008.
My email is: simonbrisk@ymail.com and would love to hear from you.
Thanks ever so much for making my year. Absolutely amazing, you should be extremely proud of yourself.
Hope to hear from you soon, my dear friend.
Thanks ever so much,
Simon.

Must have and keep with the handful of other items I'm keeping from the collection I'm selling. I kept my TM ESB helmet.
