    Nice small pic, but the sabers look good.

    After seeing a screen used Windu stunt, i realised just how crappy the production stunts were. xD

    also the blades are iron golf club shafts if you set them on top of a smaller rod they are the perfect length :D

    Thanks ...

    Great stunts...
    I'd like to see the one in the top pic developed into a hero..maybe in metal.

    So, are we seeing the original in wood and a resin on the top? (Anakins)

    Looks good, you should add some bunny ears to the Anakin though,

    Styrene? Or a resin casting of that specific piece?

    I made "ears" for my PVC graflex by cutting up an altoids tin, and shaping it with pliars... cheap, ugly, but effective. Especially for a stunt.
