May The Force Serve You Well


« on: June 10, 2017, 05:52:04 PM »

Okay, new saber project here in the workshop.
This one, inspired by my cosplay and Old Republic character, is called 'Therion's Wrath.'

The basic design was inspired by an Ultrasabers 'Dark Catalyst' or its twin the 'Catalyst'
Both use parts from TCSS for the main body, pommel, emitter, and choke.
The LEDs for this one came from TCSS, while the remaining electronics came from Ultrasabers.


The main feature that sets this saber apart from some others was drawn from Star Wars: The Old Republic in the form of a vented saber that vents through the pommel instead of a crossguard setup.


Now, I wasn't planning to copy this hilt design completely.
I was actually inspired by Ultrasabers hilts, so I used the MHS Builder over at TCSS to come up with what I was looking for:
Exterior basic layout

Interior basic layout


Hilt mockup once the main hilt parts arrived


Machined the holes for the switches and screws, as well as drilling the speaker holes in the back choke piece


Using Aluminum Black, I darkened the grip and choke pieces to almost black, as well as the insides of both emitters.
I then used a lighter treatment over the rest of the parts to give the hilt a weathered look



Recieved a set of blade covers for use in simulating the 'unstable' blade like Kylo Ren's.
I opted to go a different route for the pommel vent, rather than using these


Electronics wired up and tested. Both amber LEDs work, and the speaker was working as well.
I have to admit that these are some of my best looking connections


With the electronics work done, I loaded my custom sounds into the Obsidian V4 ship, and then buttoned things up.

Finished pics:








All in all, I was VERY pleased with who this one turned out

Absolutely gorgeous! Where did you get the blade cover? Or did you make it?

Thank you, Lady Agana

Very sick. I like. Definitely a different style of a double blade type saber. I want you to make me one now but with traditional red blades and the Arbiter style emitters Tongue Would be a sweet saber to have for sure

 Shocked  Wow TJ, just incredible!  You have MAD skills: I love the mods on the hilt (awesome color scheme) BUT my favorite was your DIY "unstable" saber blade^^  Outstanding job sir!

Dude, this is frickin' awesome!  Wow, what a great build.  The hilt looks magnificent and that unstable blade is killer.  I like what you came up with for venting the sound, I'd wondered how you were going to do that.

Looks pretty cool. I've never seen a blade like that. It definitely gives an unstable look.

Thanks very much for all of your comments on this.
Was definitely a fun one to do.

ZT, while I could probably build you one like that, I don't think my skills are worthy of building for others.
It would definitely be an interesting build

Everything about this blade is incredible.  From the unstable blades to the hilt weathering it all looks fantastic.  Major props to you, TJ!!
