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 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.

    1. Thanks Neil, glad you liked the “sneak unofficial peek”! Yes I find it frustrating it’s not available here especially considering the amount of help we provided in the early Star Wars legacy with providing all the tech and filming facilities such as Elstree Studios and at places like Cardington Airship Base (used for the Rebel Alliance base hangar scenes). The UK is very much part of Star Wars.

    1. Hello Resa, thanks so much you’re very kind. I had to use a bit of imagination with this hilt as I haven’t seen The Mandalorian yet. I’min the UK and Disney+ isn’t available here till March ’20! I had some knowledge of another Mandalorian bounty hunter named Boba Fett so used that in my design too. Glad you liked it.

      1. Understood!
        I read everything. We probably have Disney+ here in Canada, but I refuse to pay for anymore streaming/cable etc. channels.
        Although, I must say I worked for The Disney Channel twice, and they were excellent experiences.

      2. Hello again, yes I believe Canada was a launch country along with The Netherlands (strangely). Disney have had some really talented people in their ranks over the years but sadly the “Dollar” is taking over and fans like me are being priced out of following and enjoying the stories that in the past I helped fund (I bought the toys and went to the cinema to see the films). I also don’t like how you can watch a movie and then have to buy a novel to fill in the gaps intentionally left in the plot so you don’t get the full story in the film – just to rake in more money. I’d best end my rant here, I’m getting angry and that’s not befitting of a Jedi Master! Thanks again. (p.s. I will just add, you are one very well connected lady!)

  1. Awesome post dear 😊 I’m so happy I finally have Disney+ ❤️ I can watch all the newer Star Wars movies that I haven’t seen yet. I also love The Simpsons and Disney cartoon movies x x

    1. Hello there, yes Disney+…sadly as I mentioned I am still waiting for that to launch officially here in the UK. Though even when it does become available I’m not sure I’ll be able to afford it….lightsaber designers don’t get paid much! ;D
      I would just say about the latest Star Wars films, they are a mixed bag. Rogue One was awesome, The Force Awakens and SOLO were good, The Last Jedi is very different (I had to watch it a few times before I felt it). Finally The Rise of Skywalker is a solid entertaining finale to the saga, not perfect but good. You’ll have to let me know what you think of the movies.

      1. Aww I hope streaming services eventually bring down their prices since there are so many now, so more competition between them. Yes that’s true. I prefer the earlier Star Wars movies to the newer ones 😊 Yes, I’ll catch up on the newer movies and let you know. I’ve been watching Mandalorian and baby Yoda is too cute! Extremely cute haha❤️

      2. Hmmm! Baby Yoda….draw him you must…unless already you have! Spoken I have!
        And streaming services are just too expensive in general especially as there is usually only one or two shows on each one that I ‘d be interested in, but I can hope for cheaper deals soon. In the mean time I’ll keep busy designing.

      3. Yes, I definitely want to draw him! He’s just too cute lol 😊 Yes, lets hope that they bring down the prices ❤️ I hope you had a wonderful Christmas x x

      4. Hello again, yes I had a quiet and slightly more relaxed Christmas this year at my apartment on the planet Coruscant! I got to see the new Star Wars movie and then watched my BluRays of the other films.

      5. Aww I find a quiet Christmas to be the best! ❤️ I’m the eldest of six and prefer a peaceful environment lol 😊 Yay that’s so good. Its always fun to watch movies on Christmas day x x
