Re: Luke Skywalker's TLJ «CreepyUncle» Lightsaber - SOLD OUT

I have some plans about what to upgrade in V2 :) I promise that all of you will like it.
I will describe the changes when everyone recieved their V1. And I'll start V2 pre-order in the same time.
Stay tuned
I received mine. Love it. Now, when you say "V2", do you mean a second run of Creepy Uncle or do you mean the Luke V2 from ROTJ?

From what I understand it will be another run of the Creepy Uncle saber and not the ROTJ v2. At least that's what I've come to understand.

I'm really excited to see what changed will be made! I'm reallyon the fence with this saber. On the one hand, I love the copper on the neck and control box, but I also absolutely love how screen accurate lukyanov has made this saber! I absolutely love the longer emitter and the hole in the blade plug. I've never had anything plated before, but maybe I could have the brass parts copper-plated and get the best of both worlds? :D

Looking at the screen shots, It's pretty evident that the control box/activation strip channel is aged brass. The wind vane might or might not be copper or brass. It actually looks painted to me. The only shot I can see variation in the color is when it's on Luke's belt. I have my brass parts in an ammonia vapor bath to add aging, right now. They both look pretty close to the colors on the screen used prop

Oh, I absolutely think it looks like aged brass as opposed to copper. I was speaking more in terms of continuity with the Hero version from ROTJ and how I like the copper on that particular saber, which, canonically, should also be this saber. However, one of the changes that I absolutely love is the longer emitter, so I'm at a bit of a quandary here. No matter what, I do think that lukyanov did a fantastic job, and I eagerly await his next run!


Psst... hey @lukyanov. Copper parts?? ;)

Not to mention Solo's Hold is gearing up for another V2 run.

WHY WOULD YOU NOT WANT TO CALL IT THE "CREEPY UNCLE"?!

Re: Luke Skywalker's TLJ «CreepyUncle» Lightsaber - SOLD OUT

i love my hilt, at first i was like "hmmm maybe the neck IS too long" but nah, its perfect, I got an annodized hilt and I love the look, especially when the grenade section is nice and polished it provides a good contast and pops. I like new hilts though. I also like the title of creepy uncle i think its fitting and hilarious.


Now, lets talk builds.....I am super new to builds. ShtokCustomWorks released a control box section.
https://www.shapeways.com/shops/shtokyd?section="Creepy+Uncle"+saber+chassis&s=0

What electronics should go in there?

also, without the chassis are there parts to plan for like the speaker, blade, LED etc? What are you guys thinking, and WWLD? What Would Lukyanov Do?

ps this hilt is so nice i am considering the second run so i have one to play with and one to just be a shelf queen. I look forward to more from Dennis, he obviously studied well in this subject and is highly efficient in what he does.

Re: Luke Skywalker's TLJ «CreepyUncle» Lightsaber - SOLD OUT

Forgive me for I’m not the best at photographing this. Also I haven’t installed the double sided card, d ring, or led red / green lights. I will do it all once I have everything. I also posted the smallest format since I typically can’t post hi res.

When I first got it I was really impressed at the difference between this and the FFX Vader I had. The feeling in the hand, and of course as someone who appreciates a good milling, the manufacturing is CNC porn. I look forward to posting a completed hilt. But am patiently waiting for those bad ass chassis from ShtokCustomWorks. If you have any requests of specifics from the saber feel free to ask and I’ll post.
