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!

Nothin’ Nerdy honoured me on her YouTube channel! A big thank you!

Hello Everybody, today I have had to make a very quick change of plans! I was relaxing in my Coruscant apartment enjoying the holiday spirits when I decided to check out some videos on YouTube (there isn’t much entertainment on my cable package). Well I had a very pleasant surprise, my friend Frankie – aka Nothin’ Nerdy has posted a video to honour the saber I designed for her and I am speechless. It is a little unreal to hear your name being spoken in a video and for the person to be saying such nice things about you. I’d like to thank Frankie and to let her know it was my pleasure to design her saber and produce the accompanying artwork/animations. So to my loyal visitors, followers and friends, if you could spare a few minutes and check out Frankie’s YouTube, Twitch and Facebook pages I’d be very grateful. Here are the links:

And I decided to revisit Frankie’s sabers and gave it a new colour scheme…

Just a little modification to keep me entertained, and speaking of entertainment I also continued my work on a collection of sabers I gave you a sneak peek of last week. Those items that may or may not appear in The Rise of Skywalker. Well I refined some details and I thought a nice group picture would look cool so here is another quick sneak peek of my new collection…(Only in gold…as full galleries of these new designs will feature in future posts!)….Rise of Skywalker Collection MatCap 2 MK

Two of the hilts you have seen already but they look good all together. I will end this post here as I had to type this off the top of my head, but I will have an end of year review of a few of my favourite designs I have showcased these past twelve months, there’ll be a bit of a mix!

So thanks once more to Frankie, I am really proud to have a friend like you and to my visitors, followers and friends that support me tirelessly here thank you too. Please call back to see future posts with more sabers and fun. Till next time….

Some new “things” that may (or not) appear in the movie Rise of Skywalker!

Hello Everybody, just a quick post with two images to show I can’t relax and have a few days off…after watching the new movie I tinkered in my workshop and came up with these…

Full colour articles and pictures on these two hilts will appear on FTSabersite very soon when the “spoiler-free” period ends for The Rise of Skywalker!

I am going to take a few days off over Christmas and I hope all of you have a happy, peaceful festive period however you choose to observe it! Thanks for looking in on this quick announcement, I hope you’ll join me for the full reveals.Till next time….

For Tyeth’s Rise of Skywalker Review

Hello Everybody, I have just got back from my local cinema after viewing The Rise of Skywalker. And I gotta say it was better than the negative comments would suggest I saw and read online. Of course this is just my first thought opinions, other people may not like it but I have been watching these films for over 36 years and I enjoyed this one. It was an adventure from the moment we hear John William’s Intro Theme.

I can’t say too much obviously but I will say some things/characters that weren’t handled well in The Last Jedi were “put right” and dealt with better this time around. Also don’t blink during the first half hour as it is fast moving.

I mentioned I had watched these movies for around three decades so I did see a lot of nostalgic nods to previous films which was fun. I also got to see Threepio get an important job to do in the story aside from saying “This is madness….we’re doomed!” which was cool. The music was outstanding as usual with John Williams winding his way through the film holding it together, binding the contents – I sometimes think he and his music are the Force! There were funny lines and throwbacks that made me chuckle.

On the acting side of things, all of the on screen talent gave great performances…and regards the actual story, I only had one major niggle.

There was a good solid end to the finale that made sense and made me happy and sad at the same time….how else could it have ended? A balance.

So this has been my initial thoughts on The Rise of Skywalker. Again others may disagree (I’m not the most experienced film critic!) but I thought it was worth my money to view it. Oh wait! I got tickets as a birthday present but you know what I mean and finally….yes I was inspired by one or two things that may or may not have appeared in the movie so I will be busy over the festive period making 3D models!

Thank you for looking in on this, my mini first thoughts review. If you are planning to go and see TROS I hope you find it as entertaining as I did. And I hope you will return and let me know what you thought of it (but please don’t spoil it for others ok!). I’ll be taking things easier over the next week or two so if we don’t get to chat I hope you all have a great holiday season however you choose to observe it! Till next time….

Frankie’s “Nothin’ Nerdy” Saber – a 1000 Subscriber gift

Hello Everybody for an impromptu “Special Gift” post! I have recently “met” a nice young lady by the name of  “Nothin Nerdy” also known as Frankie, who has her own YoutTube and Twitch streaming channels. On these channels Frankie livestreams while she plays Star Wars computer games such as “Star Wars: The Old Republic” (SWTOR) and the new “Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order”. However I was introduced to Frankie when I saw her video on YouTube where she was unboxing her new custom saber. I left a comment on her video and to my surprise Frankie replied and from there we started a conversation and we got to know each other a bit. Frankie helped me get into using message boards and live streaming (giving me instructions on how to sign up etc) and I introduced her to some of my designs. Well, Frankie had the ambition of reaching 1000 subscribers on YouTube before the new year and I kinda suggested that if she reached that milestone I would design a custom saber just for her. Frankie reached that milestone in the past few days and as I am a Jedi I kept my promise and here is the saber…Now Frankie just follow the instructions and reach out…call to your saber!…

See Frankie, I kept my word as a Jedi, I hope you like it! It has a double pronged/shrouded emitter (which are all the rage at the moment!), gold accents and trim, as well as an illuminated activation switch. The saber even has a “Double Crystal Chamber” with a red and green crystal cube. And just to make sure we know you are a Jedi it has the Order’s logo on the pommel. Oh! I just realised you can’t see those details in the reveal video so here are a few images for you (I know you like gold!)….

These pictures are textured using a basic preview material making the model gold all over so you can’t really see it in full “Technicolour” so how about I take you on a virtual tour of your hilt? Here is a short video to show off some of the details…

I think you can see all the details in this video and as you are a fan of the Jedi Consular character in SWTOR I made a double bladed staff version for you too! The saber also sports the pink blade you hinted at so this is quite unique (and the switch matches too). I hope this saber and staff serve you long and well, I’ll arrange with you to send some full size images and videos for you to keep OK? Here are a few of them…

Now I’d like to share a few links to Frankie’s Social Media platforms as she deserves as much support as possible so if you like Star Wars, computer gaming or generally having fun celebrating all things Star Wars then please check them out.

Nothin’ Nerdy YouTube: Nothin’ Nerdy YouTube Channel

Nothin’ Nerdy Twitch: Nothin’ Nerdy’s Twitch Channel

Nothin’ Nerdy Facebook: Nothin’ Nerdy’s Facebook

Please visit Frankie and help her channels out, you will have a great time as the community that has built up around her are a great bunch.

Thanks Frankie for becoming a friend of mine and I hope you have continued success in the future…and speaking of futures that includes “Level Up Days” and guess who just got a little bit older today? Yes For Tyeth just became “For T Four” (Forty Four) years young and I just wanted to share with you a few pics of my birthday presents I got!

Ok I think that just about wraps up this special “Gift Giving” post, I hope you all enjoyed it and again to Frankie, thank you for being such a warm welcoming member of the SW community and inviting me to join your circle of friends and I hope you will feel part of the For Tyeth family here!

To all my followers, new and regular (including those in Brazil – I see you!) thanks so much for your continued support it means a lot. Please call back for future posts as I hope to do a review of “The Rise of Skywalker” and I have a whole storeroom full of new saber designs to show you all. Till next time….

Skywalker-Risen saber – A Master Series saber.

Hello Everybody, well! it’s less than a week to the release of the new film Rise of Skywalker! Can you believe that? And as it is such an exciting time for fans I felt I needed a BIG saber for possibly the BIGGEST Master of them all….Luke Skywalker! We didn’t really see him use his iconic green bladed hilt he constructed and so I thought why not show my version of this hilt today. This is my “Master Series” model of that iconic saber complete with a few hidden features. I did make a few videos and would have stitched them together to make a more polished production but unfortunately I had a few issues with my laptop again…but I did my best. Now Luke constructed his saber in a cave on Tatooine using the plans he obtained from Obi-Wan Kenobi’s homestead. There was a scene in Return of the Jedi of Luke completing his saber but it was cut out of the final edit, however here is that scene found on YouTube…

So I took a trip to a desert planet and set to work building my tribute saber and this is what I came up with…this is Skywalker-Risen…

I said a few posts back that I didn’t know how I was going to top my Graflex inspired saber model but with this hilt, I think I may just have surpassed any hilt I have modeled to date! I managed to recreate the beautiful emitter with the thin neck, complete with the copper accented drum part. Then comes the distinctive black and silver ribbed “grenade” grip part. Connected to the grenade handgrip is the main body of the hilt with the famous Control Box you can see Luke poking into with his screwdriver in the video. The control box has matching black and silver stripes on the top panel and is surrounded by decorative copper rails. On the side of the box are two triangular accent function lights and two black activation buttons. The hilt is finished off with a pommel that harks back to Obi-Wan’s saber from Star Wars ANH which looks like a tap/faucet knob…and it comes complete with  a triangular belt hanger loop!

This was a really detailed build and just to show you how detailed here is a picture of the model as I was building it…Jedi Master Build Studio 1 MK

As you can see there seems to be something going on inside the hilt, a lot of things to be precise! Yes, there is a crystal chamber in the handgrip AND a chamber in the pommel….and if that wasn’t enough, the control box cover slides open!

Look closely inside the control box and you will even find components fully modeled including Hex Head topped adjustment screws (these are what Luke is adjusting in the video above to set the blade length and power settings) and there are four power regulator capsules (which are actually real world resistors which I modeled). To show when the saber is correctly set the two LED indicators shine green! Here is another short little animation showing the Triple Reveal in action…

As you can see this hilt really is unbelievably complex! How I constructed it in a cave I don’t know, I just knew that if Master Luke managed it then I too had to. And to give you an idea of the conditions in that cave take a look at this…we’re going out on location in this video…

Again, I apologise for the video being short but I was on location and experiencing Technical Issues (hopefully in the New Year I will have a new laptop! Hopefully!)

Ok I have a final batch of images to give a slightly better look at all the little details and fancy bits and there is a DarkSide version of this hilt as well just for balance….

Phew! This is a LOOONG post! But I have one final crowning feature to show you all. So far my hilts have had static non moving blades, as I struggled to master the animation feature to recreate the extending blade and combining it with the glow effect….well watch this next clip and get ready for the “SNAP!-Hiss”…

I finally nailed the animation tricks needed to make the blade extend (and retract) and I thought I’d add a little sound effect too! Just in time for the new and sadly last movie in the Skywalker saga. I hope you enjoyed this design and my tribute to Master Skywalker’s saber, I certainly pushed every limit I could think of to accomplish it!

That just about wraps up this post but first I need to thank you (for reading this far and…) for all the support you have given me. Whether you are a first time visitor or a regular thanks so much for your time, likes and comments, you are very much appreciated. Now I have more new designs still to come in future posts and I will be writing a few posts about The Rise of Skywalker (I’m giving myself a birthday treat and getting VIP tickets to see it!) I hope you will return to see all of that and more! Till next time…

“Blissfull Sabers” for Zorii Bliss

Hello Everybody, today I bring toy you not one but TWO new hilts, well a matching pair of sabers for a mysterious female character who will appear in the new Star Wars film The Rise of Skywalker in about 2 week’s time! (Wow time has flown!) A while ago Vanity Fair released some promo teaser images and one was of a mysterious woman dressed in a burgundy and gold bodysuit and helmet. The outfit immediately reminded me of a few things…first was Daft Punk because of the helmet but I also remembered a movie and tv show with rocket/jet pack wearing characters. The TV show was an old Saturday morning cinema style serial called “King of the Rocket Men” from 1949. The movie came out around 1991 and was called “The Rocketeer” made by ….Disney! Both lead hero characters wore rocket packs and distinctive helmets. Here is the poster for the Disney film…

The movie set around the 20’s/30’s has a distinct Art Deco style and look to it, but it is that helmet just look at it! Now take a look at the Vanity Fair image of Zorii Bliss and her helmet…look familiar?…..

star-wars-feature-vf-2019-summer-embed-09 (1)

Ok, it is a little bit more futuristic with the paneling and air vents/radiator parts on the back but that looks spookily like the Rocketeer. Zorii also has what looks like art deco styled patterns on her belt and bicep bands. I saw this and just knew I needed to create a hilt for this character. So I set to work and came up with this hilt…

I really went to town with this design and used the burgundy of the suit as the handgrip and added the antique gold and gloss black accents. The emitter is modeled on Zorii’s helmet viewed side on. The switches I made to look like the old rotary dial controls found on 1930’s/40’s radios to fit the art deco look. The pommel looks like the decorations found on pillars and columns of art deco buildings with the geometric carvings. I was pretty stoked and happy how these turned out but I had only seen a picture of Zorii from the waist up and a new image was released (the one above) that revealed Zorii had two curved handled blasters. I liked those blasters and thought “How would this saber look if it was curved?” So you know me….I bent the saber! Here are the pictures of the update…

I used the same function in Blender 3D that I used to bend my Aquaman Bend Lightsaber hilt. I had to create “cuts” in the hilt then draw a curved line which the software then maps the model onto and bends the shape to the line drawn. Anyhoo, you may have noticed that in the last picture there are TWO hilts and you would be correct. I modeled a matching saber to form a pair (and I mirrored the second hilt so each one can hang off Zorii’s belt like a pair of pistols). Oh yes and did I mention that the mysterious Zorii is portrayed by Kerri Russell? That is why you can see the actress in the title image above! And as these hilts were for such an intriguing character I decided to add one final  touch, an embossed pattern to replicate the mysterious geometric art deco designs on the handgrips too! Here is a final batch of images of the matching pair…

I forgot to mention that I added a yellow “Darksaber” style flat blade to match the flat rounded rectangular shape of the hilts’ cross-section. Phew! That was a lot of images again but I think I have covered everything now. Not a lot is known about Zorii except for the facts she is a human from the planet Kijimi and was the leader of a gang known as The Kijimi Spice Runners….and has a past connection to Poe Dameron! We will find out more when Rise of Skywalker hits cinemas on the 20th of December (UK date).

I am nearing the end of this post, but before I go I need to say a big thank you to evrybody who has visited and supported me these past three and a bit years, I have now passed the 15,000 views mark. So thank you all, new viewers and all my regulars you are fantastic and much appreciated. I hope you enjoyed these hilts and really hope you will return for future posts as I have my final Master Series hilt coming up along with a whole batch of new original designs and I’ll be chatting about the new film. Till next time…..

BOBA Legend Saber – The man with five lines

Hello Everybody, today I bring you the second of the Mandalorian inspired hilts I have made and this one is based on the original Mandalorian bounty hunter we saw in a Star Wars film or series. That man is Boba Fett, the mysterious bounty hunter that cashed in Han Solo to Jabba the Hutt. We first see Boba in Empire Strikes Back when he is hired by Darth Vader to hunt down Han and the Rebels. However, believe it or not, Boba Fett despite all his popularity only spoke FIVE lines of dialogue in all the time he was onscreen. He also met an unfortunate end whilst fighting Luke Skywalker on Jabba’s Sail Barge skiff when a semi-blind Han inadvertently struck Boba’s jetpack and sent him out of control into the Sarlacc Pit.star-wars-boba-fett-facts In a book which has been released since Return of the Jedi came out hints that maybe Boba survived this ordeal as a set of Mandalorian armour was found on Tatooine near the famous Sarlacc Pit…so if Boba is alive he may be looking for some new weaponry…how about a saber? Well…I just happen to have one he may like…here is BOBA Legend Saber…

This is the same hilt as the “Mandalawrian” hilt I built but there are some subtle differences. As you can see it has been re-coloured in Boba’s famous green, grey, red and black. I added a yellow panel on the side of the hilt to represent his shoulder pauldron/armour but I think my favourite modification is the new visor area. I re-coloured one of the chrome ridges to red and it looks just like his helmet face plate…boba-fett12jpg

And in the image above you might just be able to make out a dent over his left eye, and I even added a dent on my hilt…it’s just under the letter “D” of editions in my watermark…

The saber has a Mandalorian logo on the handgrip but interestingly it has been reported recently that George Lucas has stated that Boba and Jango Fett (his clone father) aren’t actually native Mandalorians. I can’t be 100% certain of this as I have only seen one YouTube video on this topic but I will look for further details to find the truth. And speaking of YouTube, FTSabersite may be featured in a big way on that social media platform soon – however secret negotiations are ongoing and I’ll let you know more when details have been finalized – but keep your eyes open!

I’m sorry this post is a little shorter than usual but this hilt only needed minor tweaks to create it’s new looks. I hope you still enjoyed the design however and rest assured I am continually working on new designs and models. I have a pair of matching hilts for a mystery lady from The Rise of Skywalker, some bespoke designs based on a classic Original Trilogy hilt, a few sabers for my friends including a very Nerdy friend and….I have the final Master Series hilt with glamour shots and animations galore all coming in future posts.

Please call back to see all of that and maybe even more but for now I’d like to say a big thank you for your visit today. Due to all your support I am fast approaching the 15.000 views mark which is unbelievable so, whether you are a first time visitor or a regular viewer/follower thanks so much it is really appreciated. Till next time….

“Greyflex Saber” – Rey’s repaired Graflex

Hello Everybody, I hope you liked last week’s Mandalorian inspired design and today I hope to go one better than that. And to achieve this I am bringing you another of my “Master Series” line of sabers! This time I bring you the Graflex, or rather as I call it, the “Greyflex” saber belonging to Rey in The Rise of Skywalker. This hilt was originally constructed and used by Anakin Skywalker. He eventually “lost”the saber after his defeat to Obi-Wan Kenobi on Mustafaar (in Revenge of the Sith) when Kenobi left Anakin in a lava pool and walked away picking up the fallen saber and taking it with him. Around 20 years later Obi-Wan met up with Luke Skywalker on Tatooine and he returned the saber to Luke as it was “Your father’s lightsaber. This is the weapon of a Jedi Knight.” Luke then carried and used this till he “lost” it and his hand in his duel with Darth Vader in Empire Strikes Back. The saber fell down the ventilation shaft of Bespin City and wasn’t seen until Rey discovers the saber in Maz Kanata’s basement during The Force Awakens. As if this wasn’t enough of a story, the evil Kylo Ren wanted the saber and at the end of The Last Jedi, he and Rey fight over who owned the hilt and the hilt was seriously damaged as it was torn in two pieces!

That you would think was the end for the iconic lightsaber right? Well, no, in the trailers for The Rise of Skywalker we see Rey using a saber and it is the Skywalker family lightsaber that she has repaired. Here is a before and after comparison of the hilt…

The center section of the saber where it broke in two has a new band clamped around it and a new activation style box. It must have taken a lot of skill to repair the saber as it was severely damaged and Rey had no one to guide her, only possibly some information in the books she took from Luke’s hideaway. There are a few subtle differences I’ll describe later but here are a few more pictures….

As mentioned the saber broke in the middle so this is where the biggest difference obviously is. That difference is the new Clamp Band and activation box. This caused a bit of disquiet in the Star Wars saber community when fans saw Rey had just repaired the hilt with what they called a “Band-Aid” and hadn’t built her own new saber. I felt a little like that at first but now I have modeled the new saber myself I am beginning to like it more. The remaining differences are the glass eye portal has been refitted and the grip section has been modified. The black T-grips are slightly shorter and one has been modified with a slot cut into it.

T-Grip Belt Slide 1 MK
You can see the belt slot cut-out on the lower T-Grip

This slot allows Rey to hang the saber from her cloth belt/cumberbund as it slides onto the belt like the pocket clip on a pen top. This means that Rey’s version of the hilt doesn’t have a D-Ring loop to hang the saber, it just has a smooth flat unmarked pommel cap. So onto a few more pictures I think…no better still MOVIE TIME!…..

The eagle eyed viewers among you will have noticed the saber in the animation has a D-Ring pommel…I rendered the video with one, then newer pictures came out showing the ring-less pommel! I didn’t want to re-do the whole video so I left it be, but I did add a few crystal chambers! So here are a few more pictures…

Phew, there’s a lot of pictures for this hilt don’t you think? I will admit there is only one “work in progress” picture but I do have a special 24 carat gold special treat for you this week, I learnt a new function in Blender that produces a unique effect. That function is called MatCap, which allows the user to apply a single texture over the whole model to help when using sculpting tools to shape parts. However it also allows you to render images quickly to check how a model looks and I have a few “MatCap” style images to share…enjoy…..

Now that just about wraps up this bumper edition design. I think I have outdone my Mandalorian hilt. Now I just have to congratulate and thank you for getting this far!

Thank you all so much for checking this hilt out and all the support, likes and kind comments you give me, it is much appreciated. I still have a pair of sabers for a mystery woman who will debut in The Rise of Skywalker, another Mandalorian hilt, some unique original sabers for some friends of mine and a final “Master Series” saber for the last Jedi Master….I sincerely hope you will all return to see those in future posts. Till next time…..

The Mandalawrian Saber – He’s here to take you in!

Hello Everybody, today I have a special saber based on the new Disney/LucasFilm TV series which has just debuted on Disney’s new streaming service Disney+….The Mandalorian. Now I don’r have access to Disney+ as it hasn’t launched in the UK (boo!) and I can’t afford the subscription even if it was available here. However from the trailers I have been able to see on YouTube and pictures seen online I gathered this show centers around a mysterious character known as The Mandalorian, who is a bounty hunter during the time between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. He seems to be a modernised version of Boba Fett the famous bounty hunter that eventually captured Han Solo for Jabba the Hutt. The Mandalorian has similar gadgets, body armour and iconic Mando style helmet as seen here…

the-mandalorian-helmet-3d-model-stl
Copyright Disney/LucasFilm 2019

The Mando is armed with an imposing blaster rifle but I felt a character like this needed a saber….well you know me, I built one for him! And here are a few images of that saber. I call it the MandaLAWrian!…

The hilt is modeled to represent the Mamdalorian’s body armour and helmet and is a pale blue and silver in colour (the images look dark blue but that is the environment image casting coloured light onto my model- look closely on these models and you can even make out reflections of the scenery sometimes).The Mando BLue 8 MK The emitter has ribbed panels that mimic a rifle barrel both inside the emitter and on the outside while below that on the hand grip is a symbol called the Kyr’bes, the logo of the Mandalorian clans. The symbol depicts a skull of a Mythosaur. The Mando BLue 5 MKThe pommel is quite interesting, I don’t know if this particular Mandalorian has one but Boba Fett was famous for having a jet pack, so I modeled the pommel to represent the exhaust nozzle of such a backpack…

And the “crowning glory” of this hilt is the activation switch that I modeled to be a touch sensor shaped to look like the Mandalorian’s helmet and visor details. The black “visor” segment is a touch panel like those on your smart phones…just swipe your thumb up the “visor” to activate and sweep down to switch off! I even modeled the little lugs found over the “ears” of the helmet. Boba Fett’s helmet actually had a radio transmitter built into these parts. I’m not sure if the Mando has radios in his but here are a few closeups of the helmet/switch section and one final full length glamour shot….

As I say I haven’t seen the new show but I think I have created something suitable for the biggest baddest bounty hunter this side of Black Spire! Now he is fully equipped to round up the rogues of the galaxy and bring them to justice.

That just about wraps up the Mandalawrian Saber, thank you so much for checking it out. I really appreciate all the support and kind words you leave in the comments section, so whether you are a first time visitor or one of my loyal long time followers, thank you so much. Please remember to click to follow if you haven’t already so you will know when my next sabers are posted, you won’t want to miss them…I have My Master Series hilts to come, another Mando saber for Boba, a few new Obi-Wan Kenobi inspired sabers, one for a mystery lady in The Rise of Skywalker…..and one for Rey! That’s a lot of hardware!….Till next time…..
