Hello BR-fans!

Today, I completed a build I've been working on over the past half year. That's why I'm so proud of this little special project.
2 of my favourite sci-fi movies combined: Star Wars and Blade Runner.
I present to you: the M2019 Saber

Specs:
- Completely custom machined aluminium main body
- Custom made and blued steel sleeve
- Resin cast amber grip sculpted by me and cast by Soulinertia
- Metal 3D printed lever and switch box, powdercoated
- Plecter Labs Crystal Chard 4.0
- 9W RGB main LED
- Saber essentials 24mm bass speaker
- 3.7v li-ion battery in hilt rechargable with 2.1mm charge port

Comments? Shoot!

I received a lot of back lash regarding the amber grip on social media, but to me, it wouldn't be a Blade Runner saber without it. It's not the most comfy grip out there for a saber, but that was never the intention. I wanted to build a hommage to the gun, not make a fierce and handy duelling saber. This is an artistic experiment, more than it is a functional cosplay item.

Somehow the forum is not allowing me to post pic within this post, but here's a link to my album on my personal web space:

I mentioned it on the FB thread as well: before I even read your post, I immediately thought of the "laze tubes" referenced in Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep.

The emiter parts looks absolutelly great! since you mention the grips, I'll dare comment on it. I think indeed it wouln't be as obviously blade runner if it wasn't there, however, I would have make it like a simple cylinder. maybe with several parts, maybe with the diamonds patern, but not the same shape as the gun. I think you would get a really more elegant and subtle result like so.
still a great looking prop

would you allow me to post a photoshop test I did with one of your photo?
It's absolutely no problem if you don't want or if you want me to PM it to you.
cheers
