A custom lightsaber with - gasp! - non-lego focusing crystal elements.
About this creation
I made this last summer as something of a last hurrah. I at least half expected it to be my last significant Lego creation. And then I decided to build a UCS-scale E-wing. It wasn't as easy to walk away as I thought.
Though the construction is nothing special, I'm rather attached to it. Something about the lore of a Jedi constructing his/her own lightsaber and the connection between Jedi and weapon.
I'm rather pleased with the emitter end. I find it quite elegant.
Here you have a glimpse of what I imagine to be a power conduit of some sort and the focusing crystal chamber above it.
Here are the focusing crystals themselves. I know there should really only be one, but any of them by itself would have been too small. Following tradition, the crystals are of personal significance (though I'm not about to tell you what that is).
A somewhat blurry closeup of the control panel. I thought it would be fun to have minifig-scale lightsabers on my life-size model.
I think next you should make a blade for it, using only lego! And, I also think the fish gravel pieces kind of give away what their importance to you was. ( Tell me if I'm wrong, but it seems like those rocks belonged to a passed fish of yours. May he R.I.P. :] ) Anyways, nice lightsaber!
