    I had some rollers here at the shop but they were all to small. I had to use some plumbing supplies instead. :DI'm trying to find a graflex flash handle which is what they made luke's sabre in ANH out of. They are really hard to find.

    Great Blue Star. Once we get everybody armed we can take pictures and add the blades to them. Alot less messy than my method.
    By the way I just made a new saber out of parts I found at the thrift store.
    Ya know those foot pegs the stunt bicycle guys use. I found some there for a dollar!
    Their just the rite size, and I have two more.
    How did you make your saber?
    Did it turn out good?

    How are ya enjoyin the JC so far?

    That's pretty cool, I use to work at a freestyle bike shop When I lived in Atl. and I never thought about using pegs to make a sabre. I think I have a new set at home in my shed. Now I can't wait to get home and look. :D

    I made mine out of a stainless flashlight tube. I cut an oval patern out of the side of it and made an insert out of plumbing parts. Kinda one of those things you would have to see. It's a little short but I think it turned out pretty good.

    I'm really haven a ball. It's cool to be able to talk to people about star wars stuff. I think my family is tired of hearing me ramble about it to them. :)

    Headhunter: Yeah your method was a little odd... :p lol ;) I could do the "adding blades" thingys on the computer if you want :D ;)
    (We have paintshop Pro)

    BlueStar: I never thought about that either... it would be cool though!
    What makes a really good Vader lightsaber is a Flashtube or FlashGun thingy (like the things they use for really old cameras lol They have them on the internet. They are cool! :p lol
    Cant wait to see your saber! :D

    So what's the deal?

    I live in Augusta but I don't visit the JC very much anymore.

    What's involved in FanForce and why would I want to join?

    And who are you people? :p

    Well Darth Nivuahc, the Fan Force Is a group of people who are Star Wars entheuasts. Sort of like a fan club for the whole Star Wars universe. Some of the larger fan force groups do charity work like going to childrens hospitals in costume and hamming it up for the kids. Others attend SW related functions as groups just to have a good time. Our FF is still new and has few members so we havent realy gotten into all the cool extra stuff yet. We are having our 2nd official meeting on saturday the 23rd at an I-max theater to watch AOTC as a group. We are even going to meet an honorary member from the JC who lives up there. Its going to be a blast!

    As for why you should join up, its simple. To be able to meet with other people who share your love of all things SW. And you will find we also share many other intrests and hobbies not SW related. In short we understand your affinity to this grand fantasy called Star Wars because we share it.

    Who are we?... Come on darth,you know who we are.
    We are the people who know Porkins's call sign.
    We are the people who know how many difrent sabers Luke carried in the movies.
    We are the people who know how many jedi sat in the council chamber in TPM.
    We are the people who know that Qui Gon had an apprentis before Obi Wan.
    We are the people who know way too much about a fictional universe,people who dress up like jedi and jump around the house pretending to save the universe, people who should realy get a life. But we dont care!

    We are SW fans and we are just like you!
    :p
