    Hi guys,

    just wanted to show you this very first Lightsaber I ever made. It's also actually the very first Star Wars Prop I ever built, 'cause normally do Trek stuff only. As the title says, I did this one for a friend who had a birthday recently. He said I was nuts to go through all the effort, BTW... :D

    A *HUGE* "Thank you." goes to Markus (aka OdiWan72) for providing me with the necessary parts. Thanks a lot, buddy.

    So, here are the pics:

    As you can see, I'm still lacking a correct forward D-Ring, so if one of you has a spare one, LMK. :D

    If you've got any questions, post 'em here.

    Thanks for looking.

    Thanks guys.

    Question since I'm not as much into SW props as you guys are: If this were for sale, how much do you think I could get for it?

    Of course neither I nor the new owner of this wants to sell it, I'm just asking out of curiosity...

    welllllll...............ever since MR started making good looking LS replicas, I've found that the a$$ has somewhat fallen out of the market.

    I dunno...maybe 150??
