Howdy folks, so I'm just gonna create this thread to encompass all future (and past) lightsaber projects. Everything all packed neat and tidy into one thread.

I've pretty much finished with my V2, and I'm posting a few teaser pics, for now. More to come later!

I'd like to thank Dan and Danny and Trent and Chris and anyone else who had a hand in this project for all their hard work! This has become one of my favorite props of all time. I think there's a few little tweaks left to do, but I couldn't hold off posting a few pics any longer!

Posted this in the HS project thread, but wanted to add it to my personal lightsaber thread, too.

My Holiday Special lightsaber progress!

Here's where I'm at with mine.

Finished modeling/printing my control box,

though it looks a touch smaller than Trent's lovely version. Still need the red light lens and need to add the black arrows and tongue part. I did add some weight inside, though!

Thanks, my friend!

I've just finished printing an up-scaled box. I think this one's closer. Don't have pics yet.

I still need a red lamp!!

I ordered a little pile from china that I'm still waiting on if you want one, they're the ones that a couple folks (Trooper included?) found with the beige threaded portion

That'd be great, man! I appreciate that. Trent said he'd send me one, but he hasn't gotten back to me about it, so that would be a huge help!

Sorry man send me a fb message and remind me. I’ll pack one up and send it out when I get back to my computer. Been crazy busy with work and it slipped my mind.

Almost done with the Holiday Special hilt, and been doing work on updating my Kurtz Vader. I modeled and printed some Kurtz style grips along with the control box, haven't finished the model of the wiper blade part, yet. Swapped out the D ring, and soon I'll add an updated sheet metal cover for under the emitter. I plan to make a new D ring mount so I can put that rear screw in the correct spot.

Anyway, pics!

And the Kurtz Vader....

I also plan to replace the "clamp" band. I found a nice rubber part at the hardware store. The grips need some putty in spots, and the tape holding them on is too thick. I may eventually add the tiny screws, not sure.

Oh, and FINALLY got around to notching some proper T track for my OTHER ESB Graflex! Haven't drilled any holes, yet.

Oh, and I scored yet another Bolsey (for $30 shipped!), since I still have a couple coin edge knurled end caps, and a few spare parts, so this Yoda saber will be for sale, soon. Already done most of the work.

Pretty much done with this Yoda hilt. This makes either 5 or 6 that I've done over the years, can't recall which.

Did a little bit of light weathering on this one (though I'll likely come back and clean it up a hair), it needed some character. I even weathered my personal Yoda alongside, because I was a little bored with the pristine look.

Anyway, better pics to come, and I'll be selling this little fella!
