Since we've got this awesome tool with millions of possibilities, I thought it might be fun to have a series of "just for fun" builds of sabers themed around other non-Star Wars characters/properties that we enjoy. Put 'em together, maybe with a characterful name and short explanation for the parts chosen and such.

Example:
The Dark Knight
( :P )

It uses:
  • Sinister Prophecy pommel which I like both in name and aesthetics. The semi shrouded pommel evoked the trailing cape of DC's own Dark Knight.
  • Juggernaut body, wrapped in yellow for color contrast and because the natural feel of leather vibes with a hero who has no super powers
  • Mauler switch - I picked something that wasn't too busy but had some gizmos to indicate the Dark Knights own varied gadgets, while keeping the hilt uncluttered
  • Dissident emitter, which was thanks to the notched shroud. It was between this and the Reborn, but I ruled out the reborn because of it's third "claw". The dissident offers a nice resemblance to the familiar cowl.

Fun? Interesting? Worth a shot?

I'll just call it- The Penelope Pitstop.
Hmm. Maybe the purple/yellow are the wrong way round.

Looks good to me, but that's from The Captain Caveman of the forum! The designs have become more varied from when we had that little competition earlier in the year!

Thanks for sharing,

Inspiration has struck! I give you: The Upholder! (Name suggested by For Tyeth)






This was inspired by Captain America, as a saber that could be used in tandem with his shield. A saber that can cut anything alongside with a shield that can deflect anything-an excellent combo.
The colors are obviously inspired not only by Cap's American hued red white and blue, but the silver is supposed to give the idea of the hilt being made of vibranium, as well.
((Rats, hang on, gotta figure out how to embed a picture.)

I have to admit, I wouldn't have expected that color combo to work out, but it turned out nicely. The pommel vaguely suggests Cap's star, as well.

Edit: Here's another, "The Patronus"

  • Pommel 7 nicely recreates the "bulbed" end of Harry Potter wands.
  • Dissident body was used as the longest wrapped body. Can't really be mistaken for wood, but it gets the idea across
  • Fury switch is in there just because it's small and subtle, so focus is on the body and emitter
  • Prodigal Son emitter (1), to get the tapered feel of the wand tip, and it had some more natural colors to it.
  • Light blue blade because that's the only charm a Jedi needs.

Trying to revive this thread with a pick-me-up: The Deadpool Imma Kill U Stabby Stick, otherwise known as the Full Size Deadpool Crotch Roc-- okay, we'll stop there.

"What? I was having fun!"

Quiet you.



Would you like to do the honors, Deadpool?

"I'd be happy to! Just let me fix this italicizing the format on my text, and we'll be good to go!"
Red Blade 26''--"As you can see, this bad piece of awesomeness is double bladed. Makes the bad guys twice as dead!"
Juggernaut Emitter-Black--"Because like a Juggernaut, I cannot be defeated. Also, moar swords. Yee!"
Fury Switch-Black--"You won't like me when I'm angry...lol J-K, I'm basically the same!"
Dissident Body-Black, Medium Red Leather--"As you can probably tell, this laser sword thingy is designed with my trademark colors in mind."
Male 3 Coupler-Black ASP--"Heh. Male part. Pffft."

"Man, the guy that designed this bad boy must really want a--"
--Aaaaaand with that, Deadpool goes back to being a comic book character!

The saber design is spot on, Eddlyss, but your narration absolutely sold it!

Thank you! I need more jokes, but besides that my real life Deadpool impression is even better.

I've got a couple more saber ideas that will be a bit more serious. I mean, nothing can really follow Deadpool up.
Bane from Batman (Dark Knight series)
Roranoa Zoro from One Piece
Ezio Auditore from Assassin's Creed (Ezio Trilogy)

I'll do them in order unless I get a request for one above another or an entirely different idea. I am not doing one for:
Any Star Wars characters that don't normally wield sabers, like Han Solo or Boba Fett
Hulk
Iron Man

Hi all,

Just thought I'd pull this from one of my other posts,



And I believe there is a Captain America blade that needs a name? Possibly "The Upholder" of the American way.

Kind regards

For Tyeth

p.s. your jokes are better than mine!

I like that name, For Tyeth! I'll be editing Cap's saber after this! Speaking of, I give you...

"Permission"



Obviously the name is based on Bane's infamous line: "You have my permission to die."

Sinister Prophecy Pommel-Weathered
Resilient Body-Weathered, Yellow Leather
Reborn Switch-Weathered
Jade Emitter-Weathered
Lime Green 37" Blade
Sound Crimson

Not only did I envision Bane to have a saber hilt covered in buttons and knobs that reflects the appearance of his mask, but for some reason I also envisioned sickly colors such as yellow leather and a lime green blade to give a sickly, poisonous air to the saber.

Too late, I already approved "The Upholder". Next time, friend.

All this talk of Patriotism reminded me of this, (and I'm British)



Makes me realise how lucky I am to own mine!

I hadn't realized the images generated by saberparts.com were so short lived...or maybe they broke for some other reason. At any rate, fixed those first two pictures.

Hi Borommakot,

I always take a couple of screen grabs of any Saber I create and save the pics with MSPaint or Photoshop, whatever you have got. I'd also grab a picture with the parts list on too!.
I have a folder on my laptop to store my designs in.

Hope that helps
