As always, it totally rocks .

Do you have any of the reference pics to show for comparison, I remember the Saber a little but I have not seen the original drawnings/artwork in a while.

Where did these concept drawings come from? I remember McQuarries drawings having sabers but not this detailed. Great work either way, a must have for the Trooper that thinks he has everything. :p

That concept (so to speak) is from the February issue of the Insider, it's 'bout Vader dueling some "Dark Jedi" (man, I hate that name) Clones.

The artwork and saber design are mine.
It's kinda funny seeing people replicating something I did for a change. ;)
The design was based somewhat on McQuarrie's drawings (the black ridged material for example) but I tried to give it a prequel and OT feel. It's obviously influenced by trooper armor too (white with black rubber trim). The control box is supposed to mimic the ab plate buttons while also being similar to Anakin's sabers. It was a white toilet seat bumper with LEDs and snap in black plastic bezels.
The whole thing is found parts from the hardware store (besides the aluminum Covertec from Luuke and activation button from a Graflite).

I need to get mine back together. It's sitting here on my desk because I need to touch up the paint.

Thanks guys. Glad you like it.

lonepigeon, I had no idea who made the one in the first one. Found parts ? that's great.
I'd like to talk to you about how you did it. I machined mine. Had to buy a $40
corner rounding end mill for the box.... toilet bumper... that would have saved me a few bucks. :unsure

I just think it a great design, and was fun to make. thanks.
