    So many great twists to this. I love the moulded leather! The mish-mash of colours and finishes works really well.

    The switch box certainly makes this unique! Is there any way to use the cloth hose segment around the handle instead of the yellow strip?

    I like the Dooku inspired grip and the shroud work is very precise. Excellent weathering too, it really does look Star Wars-y.

    The two speakers and ball gem make a really beautiful chamber. I also like how sleek this looks. Great name too.

    That's an incredible build log. Great improvisation and patience, getting everything to fit together so sweetly. I didn't fully appreciate the crystal chamber or the etching when I voted for this in...

    The support for accent LEDs is limited to 20mA. You could supply 10mA (using the right resistor) to each of the solo accent LEDs, wiring them in parallel.

    So additional current for the PLI LEDs...

    From my experience with Shapeways it is possible to design your own trim rings and get it right first time, but 3D printing them is significantly more expensive than ordering from TCSS. 4x-8x for...

    This was definitely worth voting for. I thought the box fit well with the hexagon-curves of the etching. It is a very simple design but has complexity in the weathering and etching. The etched areas...

    I agree, the heavy patina with polished rim and the etched scales were two very beautiful and creative directions. The pommel blends well with the scales.

    Kudos on submitting a very worthy saber....
