    I've said it before, and I'll say it again, I love sabers that look like they came right out of the original series. Great Job!

    For what it's worth, I like the hammered copper best. At least, in the image you posted. Seeing it in real life may show different results. Here, however, it presents enough of a contrast to make the...

    Fantastic way to use your imagination! I'm a HUGE fan of people using recycled parts. I think it gives the saber a more original feel.

    Lookin Good! I honestly thought your damaged paint was just some weathering you'd done, lol. Looking forward to seeing this completed. I like the more classic look of these kinds of sabers.

    Only if you're using an MHS hilt (which are nice and pretty and feel awesome in the hand, but tend to be pricier. SO worth it!).

    Nicely done! The glossy coating ought to work well with the metallic paint, it's hard to see in the pic, though. PVC is my favorite medium.

    It's the most forgiving and the cheapest if one screws...

    I like, very old school feel. As The Yin stated, variety is the spice of the hobby. I tend to lean toward the more traditional style of hilt, and I like how you've captured the feeling of a McQuarrie...

    I took a ton of photos to try and show the community, but my camera isn't good enough to show the differences. The main LED color washes out any of the subtle changes. Hopefully Lubic's fancy camera...

    I kinda like it.

    I don't know how many people have fooled around with the wrapping on the interior of the blade, but an unfortunate discovery led me to do some experimentation. Awesomeness ensued. The following is a...

    Thanks, Machinimax! I've been looking all over for something like this (books, videos, etc.), to no avail. I'm so going to watch these when I get the chance.
