Hello Everyone, today I am going to go back to my childhood and a comic book and cartoon that was popular then. As the title suggests the comic was about a certain group of robots. These robots were travelling through space but their ship, The Ark, crash lands into a volcano on the planet Earth. After laying dormant for centuries The Ark was awoken by an eruption and the on-board computers modify the robots so they can change shape to blend in with their surroundings. This led to the creation of, the Transformers! There were the good guy Autobots and the evil Decepticons. This saber is a tribute to the smallest but bravest of the Autobots, Bumblebee. Here is Bumblebot…
Bumblebee was the smallest of the Autobots but what he lacked in stature he more than made up for in loyalty and bravery. As such I thought he should have a distinctive saber. I used the same colour scheme as he wore in the cartoons and comics. The clawed emitter represented the small horns on his head and the alternating black and silver body section gives a hint to the insect he is named after. The saber has an FTE pommel to give it a bit more power and the crystal chamber and blade are his trademark yellow colour.
Bumblebee was very fond of the humans that he met, such as Buster Witwicky and I hope he would be as fond of this saber too. This saber isn’t an isolated design as I have a few other Transformers themed hilts which of course I will bring to you in future posts. As always thank you all for looking in on my site, it means a lot.Till next time.
