Hello again and here on Page 4 we’ll see some more of For! Well as I said earlier more of my designs at least. So I had a fairly popular collection of droid inspired hilts and a Millennium Falcon but there are other ships out there and then there is the Tie SIlencer! And as you can imagine such a striking looking spaceship would make an impressive saber so here is TY Silencer…and a few other hilts….
The TY Silencerwas so much fun to build as I used multiple techniques to build the very distinctive shape and I even added a lighted FTE pommel to replicate the ship’s engines. I then had a saber for General Grievous named Kaleesh (Kaleesh is the name of Grievous’ species), a saber based on Ezra Bridger’s new green saber as seen in Star Wars Rebels and for fun I even built a saber based on the 80’s TV show “Knight Rider” for my friend TheVintageToyAdvertiser (I am also building a few more for him which you will see next year).
We didn’t have a big Star Wars movie premiere this year at Christmas because Episode 9 doesn’t come out till 2019 so what would we watch instead? Well it turns out there are currently TWO big blockbuster films at cinemas fighting for our cash so I figured “how about building a few hilts based on these films?” So of course I did…
These “Super Hero” and Comic Book inspired designs served two purposes, first they celebrate popular culture, and secondly they are totally unique and new designs I created so they don’t get mistaken for the Cerakote ones I mentioned earlier. I think I am now beginning to really get to grips with 3D modelling. And I am not just creating “inspired by” hilts but original designs not seen on the big screen…. and I have a few of those on Page 5 and I finally get a little time to relax and have fun….
So please click to go to Page 5 (we’re nearly finished I promise!)
