This is really just an excuse to add to my Graflex collection - but here's a WIP build based on early concept art of the Jedi Killer's (early Kylo Ren concept) dual-bladed saber.






So far it's all stock ASP components with sanding to add or remove weathering. Parts aligned with a combination of shims and sanding.










LEDs are some single Crees I had sitting around. Royal Blue (SF Deep Blue) and Photo Red (SF Deep Red) on each end.




Using a soundboard pulled from a knock-off crossguard saber for staggered ignition. No motion or clash sensors.

There's not a lot of info on this hilt, since it obviously didn't make it into the movie, but my own little explanation is Kylo building the hilt by combining Anakin and Vader's last sabers. My final plan is to machine a few components to make the red-side better match the RotJ Vader Stunt:

There must be both dark and light.

WOW! With the blue right next to it for comparison, that Deep Red looks really red, without even a touch of magenta! Gorgeous....and..Sithy...and....eeeeeeviiilllll :evil:
I like it! *Maniacal laugh* :evil:

I know what color I'm putting in any pure Sith saber I might ever order!

Did the ASP shop drill the extra hole in the one switch near the Graflex emitter?

the bunny ears would take a beating, though.

also, wasn't that book awesome?

very cool saber staff, mate!

Thanks a bunch, guys.

As far as I can tell, the Dissident switch sections I ordered come with the three switch holes by default.

When I eventually upgrade to Spark Color or Ignitor, the plan is to have the switches and recharge port in the silver section, while the black section will just get a bit of mesh in the otherwise open holes for sound ventilation.

Currently rocking a recharge port in the silver side so I don't have to open this thing up again until it's time to upgrade.

Pretty Bad Assed. Great work as always!

There's a lot of cool saber artwork in that concept art book, plus some nifty costume designs.

Had to calibrate some new material for the printer, so I figured the RotJ Vader details would make for some nice test prints.

Parts printed, cleaned, and hit with a base coat of flat black. I'll take a close-up shot when I do the detail paint and install the D-Ring.



Hilt's also been completely gutted in preparation for better electronics.

Wow, that's a really fantastic looking saber staff. I really like the mix of Anakin and Vader. Those 3D printed parts look perfect on that emitter. :)
