Hi Everybody…

I am For Tyeth, and I plan on making this my “New Home”.

I discovered that I had a bit of talent designing Lightsabers so I will be showcasing some of my Lightsaber designs and some from my friends here!

You can find all the designs in the Saber Gallery.

As the site grows I hope to bring you news from the world of sabers!

Anime Hunter Lightsaber – Inspired by Hunter x Hunter

Hello Everybody, today we venture to the Manga Universe and the world of “Hunters”. I am referring to the Manga/Anime phenomenon known as Hunter X Hunter where a young kid called Gon Freechs aspires to become a Hunter, a specialist member of the population who are expert archaeological treasure hunters and for some….Assassins! To become a Hunter you have to be licensed but there is a snag…the success rate for passing the tests is 1 in every 100,000! This doesn’t deter Gon Freechs however and after discovering that his long lost (and presumed dead) father is a Hunter, he embarks on becoming a Hunter in his father’s footsteps and tries to discover what happened to his dad. Well on a perilous mission such as this he will probably need some protection so here is my solution…Anime Hunter!….

I think this would suit a Hunter and help them in their missions quite nicely. And I think this particular saber matches Gon Freech’s sense of fashion, I managed to match the colours to his outfit! The blade is a nice yellow colour to compliment the green and orange powdercoat. The blade on this hilt is based on a Lightwhip but I imagined this blade was capable of being both a flexible weapon as well as a solid fixed blade (similar to the whip/pole gadget Gon uses in the series)). You will also notice the blade projects from an emitter with three black spines which I thought looked like Gon’s hairstyle. The rest of the hilt is functional but is coated in a green powdercoat with contrasting orange banding to match his outfit.Anime Hunter Thanks For

Hunter x Hunter was created by Yoshihiro Togashi and so far there have been 370 chapters condensed into 35 volume books. There have also been animated television series, movies, ten computer games, a compilation CD of the music from the games and series….they even produced TWO musicals based on the franchise. This makes it one of the biggest selling Manga/Anime franchises in history (in Japan alone up till 2014, there were 66 million copies sold!).

Well I hope you liked this hilt (especially you ArtistByBeauty, I discovered your love of Hunter X Hunter when I watched your 20 questions video. Hopefully viewers, you’ll go and check out Capili Jiron’s blog at: Artist by Beauty) But sadly I am now running out of time and will have to bring this post to an end. I hope you will all return to see future posts, I appreciate all the support you give me. Till next time.

FTSabersite receives the Sunshine Blogger Award

Hello Everybody and to ArtsandHobbies2006! Today I have the pleasure of having been nominated for the “Sunshine Blogger” Award once again. ArtsandHobbies2006 nominated me this time and you can check out their blog ArtsandHobbies2006. Here you will find various posts covering art, poetry and even a historical drama, Walking The Oregon Trail. I’m slowly reading through this as I know some people from Oregon!

As I have received two other awards already this year I won’t perform the full ritual for this award but I will answer the questions posed to me. The reason I am doing this is that all the folks I would nominate I already did before, and I know they are busy running their own sites (and in one case my friend runs two at the same time!) So I hope you don’t mind me just doing a Q+A session and leaving a few links to my friends’ blogs that I think you may like!

Here we go with the questions and my answers:

1: If you were an animal, what animal would you want to be?

FT: I think I would like to be a Cheetah. They have a magnificent skeleton and tail that enables it to run and reach incredible speeds. It is also such a beautiful looking animal with it’s “Cheetah’s Tears” markings on the cheeks of their faces.

2: If you could go back in time, when would you go (or what time would you go to)?

FT: Well, I guess I should go now, there’s no time like the present….oh you mean where in time would I go! I think I’d visit the Victorian/Industrial Revolution era to see all those marvellous inventions being created. I might get some ideas for some Steampunk style lightsabers!

3: If you were rich, what would you do with your money?

FT: If I were rich, I would like to set up a small business designing and selling custom designed sabers so more people can enjoy owning their own space warrior laser sword weapon. But there are a lot of companies already out there.

4: If you could live anywhere, which country would you move to?

FT: Ooh I had a question like this before, “What is the best country…?” And I answered that all countries have their own attractions and are all equal so I couldn’t single just one out. I finally asked if I could live in WordPress-landia, where all the great bloggers live.

But for now I live on the Outer Rim of the UK – a small little island place with a nice cave and workshop area!

5: What would you do if you re-lived the same day multiple times?

FT: Get dizzy going round in circles in time! Seriously, I’d attempt to find the cause of the disturbance but obviously I wouldn’t discover it. Seriously, I’d attempt to find the cause of the disturb…..Haha just kidding!

6: If you could live in any kind of house, what would it be?

FT: I like old houses with history and heritage but I also like modern designs too. There are some buildings in the south of England called the Eden Project and are bio-spheres which look like some buildings on the planet Bal’Demnic so maybe a Bio-Sphere type house. (eco friendly etc)

7: What is the most valuable lesson you learned?

FT: I have lived a long time and learned a lot of lessons…hmm, I think be your own person, believe in yourself and always do your best!

8: What kind of music/which singer is your favourite?

FT: When I was younger I used to be a stage entertainer and I play piano and keyboards. So one of my biggest inspirations was Freddie Mercury and the rock band Queen. I spent the best part of 20 years learning how to play Bohemian Rhapsody correctly as it was so technical and guess what? I still haven’t nailed it!

9: Imagine you were in a deserted island. What would be the first thing you would do?

FT: I would make sure there weren’t any Gundarks or Nexu creatures around then I’d make sure I had some shelter built. It is important to protect yourself from the elements, then you can search for food and water. (A bit like Han Solo did when rescuing Luke in the Empire Strikes Back)

But I suspect you are really looking for me to give you some survival tips for when you’re playing Minecraft!

10: If you could do whatever you wanted, what would you do?

FT: I’d like to start building my own sabers one day as I mentioned already but one day I want to publish my fan-fiction story of my life! The For Tyeth Story…..ok I need a better title!

11: Which superhero would you want to be (you could make one up)?

FT: Can I be me? Some of the kind comments and deeds (like nominating me for awards like this) people bestow on me make me feel like a sort of superhero and it is much appreciated. Knowing that what I create entertains other people is a great gift to me and is what keeps me designing!

I will now highlight a few blogs from my friends that I think other people will find interesting, fun and informative. To view the blogs just click the highlighted names/link.

First in no particular order is Graphic Novelty2 where Kathleen and Nancy give well thought out reviews of graphic novels and literature for kids and big kids. Both Kathleen and Nancy are librarians and run various reading clubs….oh and Nancy has a “Wowsie” of a woolly sweater!

Next up is Annlyelonline.com, here you will find the blog of a young woman who is a big movie fan. Annlyel produces thoughtful posts analysing the big Marvel, Disney/LucasFilm, DC Comics and a lot of other studios’ films. Annlyel also has various “Top Ten Lists” and articles on books, fashion and make-up to name a few.

The Vintage Toy Advertiser.org and Wooof the cat, have a blog which focuses on classic advertising material and catalogues. There are some gems of old magazine ads and toy catalogue images which bring back nostalgic memories of the toys and products of the past. TVTA also showcases some marvellous items called Chirashi which are promotional booklets that fold out into posters for various films…and some are real works of art!

Christiana of The Boho Girl, is a young lady who has a real talent for photography and to highlight this skill Christiana holds photo-shoots with some very unique models. Christiana’s models are her collection of AG dolls! Christiana is a fan of American Girl/Guy dolls and poses them for some very clever pictures. She also posts fantastic images of her local area and some from her travels.

Here I have two recommendations, Kiri at starwarsanon and Mei-Mei of Jedi by Knight. Now I have grouped these two ladies together as both are huge Star Wars fans and at the moment they have an on-going collaboration where they each colour in the same picture from a Star Wars themed Mandala book and compare their results. They even inspired me to try my hand at a bit of art!

Kiri has great in-depth analysis of the SW Saga and it’s characters and has also guest written on other people’s blogs.

Mei-Mei has a nice feature where she takes up a photography challenge each week. The challenge is to produce a photo based on a set topic or theme. Some of her images from Skellig Michael – the island from The Last Jedi movie – have been gorgeous, so much so I want to visit there myself!

And my last recommendation goes out to one of my site’s longest supporters, the Button-Eyed Reader! Now when I “met” Button-Eyed Reader she was known as the Princess of Paperback. She may have had a change of identity but Button-Eyed Reader is still the great book reviewer I remember from her Princess days. Button-Eyed Reader has reviewed a whole range of books and regularly features on other BIG book review sites and is well respected. It would be well worth checking her site out.

And that I fear concludes this post, I am afraid time is running out and I have a few saber designs to finish, including a new Anime themed hilt for one of my more recent followers! However I must thank ArtsandHobbies2006 once again for nominating me and I hope this post meets approval. Thank you also to each and every one of you, my viewers and followers for your support of me and this site, if it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t have an audience or be nominated! Till next time.

L3-37 “Elthree” Lightsaber – Inspired by the droid in Solo

Hello Everybody, recently a new extended trailer was released for the new upcoming film Solo and with it were some arty publicity posters. However there was a problem, the main characters each had a poster, Han of course then Chewie, Lando and Q’ira. There was also a bit of a buzz around the Internet about a new droid but this “main” character didn’t have a poster! This droid is of course L3-37 or “Elthree” as she is fondly called. Elthree travels with Lando and is programmed as a female personality, carries out repairs on herself using whatever spare parts are around but they left her out of the line up of posters so I thought she might need cheering up. And how better to do that than to design a saber based on her? Well here is my design L3-37 “Elthree”…

Elthree is made up of many random parts and is “one of a kind” and so too I hope is this design…though I did carefully pick out which parts to use! The first part is the amber blade and LED setup which matched the sepia desert like colours used in the aforementioned posters (giving them a Western Cowboys film style look). The emitter is next up and reminded me of Elthree’s head and neck, including the rectangular block decoration around the edges. Now Elthree has a distinct sensor built into her head that shines out and to recreate that I thought it would be possible to cut a hole into the emitter part to allow some light from the blade to shine through, creating her “eye”. The switch section forms the torso of “L3”. As the film hasn’t been released there doesn’t seem to be many pictures of Elthree’s lower body so I picked parts that looked vaguely robotic. Here is one picture I did find of the new droid.

As you can see the legs are missing from the shot so I apologise for the educated guesses I had to make building the lower section of the hilt but I’d like to think I recreated the head quite well! (Oh, and the title image at the top of the page is a little homage to the Solo movie posters!)

I hope you liked this design and when I get the chance to see the film I may return to this hilt and work on improving the “legs”. Unfortunately time is running out again and I will have to bring this post to an end. But before I go as always I want to thank you all for visiting and supporting me and the site. I have recently had a visit from a nice  “artistic person” from Australia (yes I did sense you!) so thanks for calling in wherever you are in the galaxy! Till next time.

Paladin Defender Lightsaber – Inspired by Voltron Legendary Defenders

Hello Everybody, I have had these hilts on hold for a while as life end events here have been hectic (receiving awards, new hilts arriving and a Spam attack to deal with!), but I feel the time has come to reveal them to you. A good friend of mine and supporter of this site, DK44 Designs suggested I create some hilts for the characters from one of his favourite anime cartoon series. That series is Voltron Legendary Defenders which was based on an earlier show called “Beast King GoLion”. In the shows there is a group of five brave teenage(?) individuals who pilot mechanised lion shaped robots which can combine to form a 300ft tall super robot called Voltron. This band of Legendary Defenders helps fight the evil forces of Emperor Zarkon who intends to control the galaxy and if he gains control of the Lions of Voltron (and as a result Voltron itself) he will have ultimate dominion over the universe. I need to call the Lions to action don’t you think? Here is Paladin Defender…

This is the Green Paladin’s weapon (Paladin is the title given to the person who pilots each Lion mecha, and the real name of the Green Paladin is Katie “Pidge” Holt – The Green Paladin, the pilot of the Green Lion and Guardian Spirit of Forest). I have always thought that some emitters look like the mouths of animals (after all, the hole in an emitter is sometimes called a mouth) so I chose this emitter which has a definite “upper and lower jaw” look to it. I also added a decal of an eye on each side to  further strengthen the image. Of course this is to represent the Lion’s head and each Paladin has a saber in their own colour scheme. The rest of the saber’s design is purely functional but still has a mechanical and I feel classic anime like appearance (anime uses simple clean lines to help make animating the shows easier).

As I mentioned there are five individuals that make up the combined force of Voltron, you already know Katie “Pidge” Holt. Other Paladins include:

  • Takashi “Shiro” Shirogane – The Black Paladin, the pilot of the Black Lion and Guardian Spirit of Sky. He is the Leader of the Defenders of the Universe.
  • Keith – The Red Paladin, the pilot of the Red Lion and Guardian Spirit of Fire.
  • Lance – The Blue Paladin, the pilot of the Blue Lion and Guardian Spirit of Water.
  • Hunk – The Yellow Paladin, the pilot of the Yellow Lion and Guardian Spirit of Land.
  • And, Allura – The Pink Paladin.

So these guys and girls need sabers too so here is a second gallery to show each of their hilts…

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

Phew, That was a lot of sabers! Again, like the similar themed TV show “The Mighty Morphing Power Rangers” there have been numerous members of Voltron through the five seasons it has run. So I hope you and DK44 like these hilts, and thanks DK for the suggesttion.

This has been a long process and post, and I really am running short on time now, so I will have to finish but I have to say thank you for visiting and supporting me and the site. You keep me designing new hilts and believe it or not I have four more “tribute” hilts and a Superhero Vehicle hilt all coming up in future posts, so I hope you will return to see those. Till next time.

A Public Announcement from FTSabersite

Hello Everybody, sadly I have some disappointing news. There has been some nasty suspect activity going on around WordPress based blogs (starting on April 2nd). It involves a “Spamming” attack from a third party server. It involves a person or persons leaving likes on bloggers’ comments but the web address that these supposed likes originate from are linked to websites providing inappropriate “adult”material. They have swarmed WordPress blogs around the net and they have “liked” comments blog authors leave on other member’s blog pages (and usually older comments posted 2-3 weeks past).

WordPress are aware of the situation and are working on a fix to stop the whole thing getting worse. We have also been advised to turn off the option to leave likes on comments made on our sites. It is unfortunate and when the “fix” has been established then maybe likes can be re-instated.

Arbitrator – A tribute to Ultrasabers’ Arbiter

Hello Everybody, after last week’s tribute and offering to Shameem Moshrefzadeh I am about to introduce a design I came up with last year but never posted. It is a “tribute” design of a lightsaber called the Arbiter (and it’s Darkside version) which is designed and built by the company Ultrasabers. Ultrasabers have a wide range of custom hilts and the Arbiter is considered by fans who own one as a great all round saber. So I will keep you waiting no longer, here is my nod to Ultrasabers, this is Arbitrator….

I think this is a nice hilt and would make a fantastic duelling saber due to having many gripping options. I was able to recreate these handgrips by using multiple coupler sections normally used to combine two separate hilts into a staff. The rest of the saber was easier to recreate as the original design which just seems “solid” in my opinion. The reason I never posted this design is that I couldn’t really post this on either Ultrasabers’ or Saberforges’ forums without breaking forum rules. Now I have this site however I can finally let it see the light of day!

And for the sake of balance I will include links to both Ultrasabers’ and Saberforge’s websites and forums at the end of the post so you can check them out. I also have a few more “Inspired by…” designs for upcoming posts but next up are some hilts for a group of galaxy defenders. I hope you’ll join me again to see those. Now, as you can guess I am about to run out of time and I need to say thank you to all of my viewers and followers (and I have noticed a spike in visitor numbers from Germany so hello to you too!) Your support is much appreciated. Till next time.

Ordained Saber – A design for Shameem

Hello Everybody, after the excitement of last week’s new delivery of my new saber, I felt I should post a design to help explain why I want to attempt an install of a lightsaber myself. Well in November 2015 I finally had the funds to buy my first (and so far only) custom saber as a combined birthday and Christmas present to myself. And as an owner of a saber I decided to join the forum of the company that built it and it was here where I discovered talented folks who built their own sabers and installed electronics etc. I was amazed and as part of my “training” I wanted to build my own too. One of the talented individuals I learnt about was a gentleman called (wait for it….) Shameem Moshrefzadeh, or as most saber fans know him Shameem! Shameem had installed many sabers including a fabulous saber based on the Aliens from the self titled movie franchise and he has built a few Qui-Gon Jinn replicas. I liked the Aliens hilt but obviously I was drawn to the Qui-Gons. Shameem posts videos of his creations and I have enjoyed watching them and was inspired. I also realised he had shared his talents to build all these sabers for other people…but no one had designed one for him so I did! So here is my hilt for Shameem, called Ordained…

Now it transpires that Shameem is a follower of the Baha’i Faith and he posted a series of videos to celebrate the Ayyam-i-Ha, a big religious holiday for followers of the faith that emphasises charity and giving to persons more in need than themselves. So I designed this saber and tried to incorporate aspects/elements that would hopefully have a relevance to Shameem and his faith. The first aspects are the rings of the grenade grip and the inserts between the forks of the emitter which I  “powder coated” in green, a colour I believe represents Predetermination and was the colour of the Bab’s turban. Predetermination can also mean Ordained and I believe Shameem was meant to be as successful as he is and so this is how I came up with the saber’s name. The second aspect is the number 9, which I have read is associated with perfection and is the numerical value of the word “Bahá’” This I incorporated by colouring nine rings of the grenade grip section of the hilt. The pommel also has a lit emitter used as a crystal chamber pommel with, of course, a green crystal. The emitter and pommel are meant to represent the beautiful houses of worship (actually the one I have seen is more a cathedral!) and an acknowledgement to the faith itself.

I came up with this design on March 3rd 2017 and tried a couple of times to contact Shameem and send him a copy of the pictures but I had communication problems (I don’t have Facebook or Twitter so the Imperials/Empire/First Order can’t track me ;D ) Since then Shameem has posted a saber video on his YouTube channel which is called “Remembrance” Custom Lightsaber – Celebrating the Bicentenary of the Birth of Baha’u’llah Baha’i Faith” This saber echoes my design in using aspects of the faith and embodying them in saber form. Obviously his saber is much nicer than mine and you can view his channel by clicking the link HERE where you will see his video playlist (including his Aliens and Qui-Gon sabers!)

I hope Shameem approves of this design and I want to thank him for the inspiration to make me want to try and install my Qui-Gon hilt. I also want to thank you, my viewers and followers once again for your support it is never taken for granted and means a lot to me. I am running out of time so I hope you will visit again for my upcoming posts. Till next time.

First look at my new hilt!

Hello Everybody, so I have had a day to admire and mess around pretending I am a Jedi with my new saber – but I imagine you will want to see it too! So I have a couple of pictures for you today. I apologise they aren’t the best quality but I only have access to a mobile phone camera at the moment, my “Android” tablet bricked up last year and I haven’t been able to replace it yet….the Jawas haven’t been in my neighbourhood to sell me a new ‘droid 😀 !!

As you can see it already is a BEAUTY (the saber not me!) It is a Qui-gon Jinn inspired model called the “SSQY Super Stunt” made by a company named One Replicas. The company is well known for making great (and much sought after) hilts but sadly I couldn’t afford their early released products but I managed to snag a hold of this one! It is not quite “screen accurate” as the grooves on the hand grip aren’t as deep as they are on the real life prop Liam Neeson used in The Phantom Menace but I don’t care I love this hilt anyway! It is 28.5cm long (11.3 inches) but is sooo slim  – it measures in at 3.8cm at it’s widest, that’s 1.5 inches! As a result the chamber down the middle where all the electronics have to fit is only 25mm or 1 inch in diameter….that’s going to make it a VERY TIGHT fit. Luckily I have plans and there are some parts which will make installing this saber a little easier. But for now I am back to saving up funds to buy those.

I hope you like the hilt, I know I love it. It was the saber design I originally wanted to own over two years ago but couldn’t afford the models that were offered by other manufacturers. But thanks to One Replicas they have brought my dream of owning this classic lightsaber a little closer to reality. Thank you for checking out this post and please keep an eye open for future updates, they won’t be as regular as my scheduled designing posts but should still be fun!

There has been an arrival!..did you hear it?

Hello Everybody, just a sneak peek into my cave/workshop. I have received a package today did you hear it arrive? What’s in the box? Oooh it’s a Mystery! What could it be? Well this guy delivered it!…

DSC_0406
F.T.) Aren’t you a little short to be a Postal Worker?  S.T.) Very funny Tyeth!

As you can see my little postal worker has brought me the first pieces of my build and if you want to know what’s in the box then I will have a few pictures to share with you in my next scheduled post (and hopefully the pics will be better quality – I only have a mobile phone camera 😦 but you should be able to make things out!)

My adventure and journey has begun…I hope you will stick around to see how I get on. Thank you for looking in today. Till next time.

p.s. And if anyone knows where I can get a second hand for my Stormtrooper friend I would be very grateful if you could let me know! I saved this trooper after he was discarded because he suffered an injury and lost one 😀

Chopper Lightsaber – Inspired by C1-10P

Hello Everybody. Today I have to take us back to the Star Wars universe in a BIG way as the whole Star Wars franchise has been shaken to it’s foundations. It was the series finale for the popular animation Star Wars: Rebels and in that final episode it has been established that “Time Manipulation” is a thing! Yes Disney must have seen my Flux Capacitant Back to The Future(Back to the Future) hilt and now Star Wars characters can interact and alter timelines with the Force! This is big enough news as it is but it also drew my attention to the fact that I hadn’t created any hilts based on this section of Star Wars. So I have to rectify that and what better way than to create a hilt for the most popular droid in Rebels…C1-10P or as you may know him….CHOPPER! Now Chopper is the heroic, if somewhat ageing and cantankerous droid who acts as the maintenance team for the Ghost, the ship belonging to Hera Syndulla, Kanan Jarrus and of course Ezra Bridger. Chopper may be older and irritable but he has many tools and gadgets to help him get any job done…but again this droid has no lightsaber…until now. May I present my saber for Chopper…

This saber I think would suit the eponymous droid nicely. I tried hard to match his distinctive colour scheme with the powder coating. The basis for this hilt is my Astromech hilt I used for R2-D2 and R2-KT (but don’t worry I know Chopper is a C-Series droid – just in case you thought I made a mistake!). So the saber has the same functionality and parts as my Sensorscope Saber and should compliment Chopper’s built in tools. He used his tools and gadgets on many missions including one to infiltrate the Imperial Naval Academy on the planet Lothal. He powder coated himself black to look like an Imperial droid – how ingenious was that?! And speaking of tools and ingenuity I have some personal news that is very exciting for me and I hope you think so too. I will tell you about it below…

Wow! I can’t believe my optics, that saber looks like me! (Copyright Disney/Lucasfilm)

The big news I have to share is I am about to begin building my first saber! No, not one on a computer screen, but a real nuts, bolts and metal lightsaber with electronics and everything! I can’t afford all the parts in one purchase but I will be placing an order to buy the hilt itself on Monday. The other parts including the lights and sound making electronics will be bought every few months or so and when I have everything I will begin a  new section on the site charting my attempt to become a real lightsaber builder. It’s going to be a heck of an adventure! (And you may just recognise the lightsaber when it’s finished ; ) )

Well after that little bit of news I am afraid I am out of time. I wish to thank everyone for looking in on this design and for all your support of me and the site. I appreciate your company and I hope you will all return for future posts where I finally get to post the 80’s action cartoon inspired hilts I promised and maybe I ‘ll be able to post a few details about any saber part deliveries I receive in my mailbox! Till next time.
