Thread: My first saber: Luke's Odyssey

  1. #1

    Thumbs up My first saber: Luke's Odyssey

    I'm happy to introduce my personal approach to the Luke's ROTJ lightsaber (easy-to-handle-version):

    The powder coating, the finish, the look & feel... It's awesome. Single handed or double handed. I'm soooo pleased with it (nobody's noticed, for sure)

    Originally an empty hilt for FanFilm, I couldn't help to go further and got a green Cree single LED and the stuff to convert it to stunt occasionally. When I put the electronics I'll post some pictures with the blade.

    I went for the 3/4'' blades for rotoscoping, they are thin and light weight, I'll leave some words after the durability test. Advice: the blade tip changes a lot (for good) the aerodynamic in fast movements, 110% recommended.

    A very important thing that I've been seen missed in lots of saber builds is the weight distribution, and a thin choke to do easy spin. Be careful with those long thick sabers with a small pommel, you may have to ballast it to make it handy.

    And why Luke's Odyssey? Well, take a look at the USPS tracking and tell me if it's not an Odyssey

    A couple of pics of the iluminated blade plug and the 1" Thin walled Trans White PolyC (Green Cree XP-E2 single LED):

    And the Durability Test of the 3/4'' OD Thin Walled Polycarbonate Blade (went wrong):

    Thank you, all the merit goes for Tim and CSS, I barely lubed and assemble it

    I had a clear idea of what is needed and what was not needed, but some doubts about the length. It helped a lot printing the rendered png in paper at 1:1 scale. The proportions of the builder are 100% accurate.

    Wonderful job. It came out very nice indeed. I had a similar idea for a lightsaber I am building for a friend for Christmas. Glad to see it will look as good as I had hoped.
