Alright Saberfans!
This was my submission for the Golden Saber Contest over at FXSabers. The challenge was to build a functioning lightsaber that breaks down into multiple parts, like the gun in 'The Man With The Golden Gun' Hence the name. It's not gold and the parts don't function as other 'in universe' items but it could be a field strippable weapon.
As always, thanks for looking.

Golden Harvest v3 p4 w/seedling module. 28mm Essential bass speaker. ShtokCustomWox NPXL connectors.
Panasonic 15A high drain 18650. 2.1mm recharge port. Various Neodymium magnets.

Interested, depending on price.

In other words, magnificent.

Heyo! This is my personal vision for Mara Jade's lightsaber, designed by me and produced by SP Sabers, Props, and Collectables. There's a lot of inspiration taken from the original designs by Parks and Master Replicas but with my own spin on some of the details. Control box has no visible screws and the glass eye/knob is smoked acrylic so it looks black static but illuminates when installed. It's one of my personal favorite hilts and I was stoked to bring it to life.

This is my "found plumbing parts" Lightsaber build from a few years ago - I hope it is ok to post here?

The stand is made completely from XPS Foam from scratch.

Man, I remember hunting for “saber parts” in the hardware stores. I miss those days. It was a simpler time in Star Wars props. It was cheaper too. Much easier to explain where $30 to $40 went to the spouse.

Great job on your saber.

I'm glad you posted the photo of your hilt out of the stand. I thought those "cubes" that are part of the stand were attached to the hilt, and my second thought was, "That can't be comfortable to hold." :lol:

Nice design! Enough detail to make it visually appealing, but not so much that it looks cluttered.

Yeah - that would have been uncomfortable!! Cheers!

Finally got around to trimming and desoldering the clamp card. It was some random board at an electronics surplus store near my house. Place is a GOLD MINE.
95% TCSS parts, custom sink pipe emitter shroud.
It's almost ready for CFX. Didn't have it done in time for celebration, but I used it as a belt hanger anyway.

I like that what you did for the control box. Is that a custom piece?

It's a very old control box/band from TCSS. This saber has been a work in progress since around 2009?
It's taken a long time because a certain part would be out of stock, or tech would advance (originally it was going to run a petite crouton 4.0 with CEX, but then Crystal Focus 10 came out, and with that, neopixel)
So yeah... lots of very particular choices here lol
Oh, I forgot to put in the custom scratch built graflex lever kill key! I managed to wedge a recharge port in that box too.
Helluva journey... almost there!!! Just need a chassis disc and i can finally solder everything together!
*ha!!! Right after I posted this, USPS dropped a box at my door. Chassis disc and 2x 18650 batteries have arrived!
NO MORE EXCUSES!!!!
** ok maybe 1 more excuse... i was checking fitment with chassis, switch rings, etc. The internals are just a tad long with my old pommel style 4 that has a smaller ID so the speaker mount doesn't slide into, so I need to order the new style pommel 4 that has the same ID as the rest of the saber.
Doh!
I can still start assembly/soldering though!
