FirePower Lightsaber (Inspired by Baze Malbus)

Hello Everybody, today we return to my Rogue One inspired hilts (yes hilts) and another of the characters that nearly stole the show! This is the friend of Chirrut Imwe and he is a brute of a man, big, strong, brave and selfless! It is Baze Malbus. Baze was Chirrut’s travelling companion, who on occasions jokingly dismissed his friend’s belief in the Force, but I think Baze may have had a small part of him that believed in it too. Baze did however have an appreciation for superior firepower as demonstrated with his backpack powered laser blaster! It was this weapon that triggered my imagination to produce these next two sabers, this is FirePower Lightsaber…

This saber represents the actual Blaster Rifle part of Baze’s weapon. The emitter is meant to look like the muzzle of a rifle with fins for the flash suppressor. The switch is just functional and hopefully looks part of the weapon. The red leather grip represents Baze’s body armour chest plate. The pommel forms the stock (or butt) of the blaster and the opening forms the socket for the connecting hose to connect the gun to the backpack part! Talking of which, this is the backpack inspired second saber of this pair!…

This second saber has an emitter that resembles the top of the canister/backpack that powers Baze’s rifle, with a ridged coupler to look like cooling fins. The body has a knurled grip section similar to that used on military equipment (and on some flashlights!). The switch and second emitter used as a pommel mimics a connector for the coupling hose mentioned above. When combined I believe these two sabers would make a formidable weapon system!

Are you still with me? That was a big post but thanks for sticking with it. I hope you enjoyed it. Between Baze and Chirrut I think they nearly stole the show. Sadly this show, or rather post, is near it’s end but before I go I’d like to thank you for visiting, I hope you will return for future posts as I have a saber for a Rebel Aviator coming soon! Till next time.
