    Lookin good man, scratch built sabers are one of the most fun things you can do in the SW universe. And even more valuable that your toys cuse you built it.

    Oh and I dig the thread title, hehehe.


    Here is the scratch built saber I made for an online contest. The contest was to build it from only parts found at a Dollar Store:

    Merced has 3 different Dollar Stores within a mile or so of each other. And yes all the parts on that saber came from one of those stores. Check the link again as I had to save all my reciepts and scan them for the contest that saber was in.

    I actually took the dollar store saber with me to C3 and spoke about it on a panel, "building SW props at home."

    Isnt that due to the fact that Mercedians cant afford anything else??!! Property Values eating up all the income in this town!! :(
