Hello and welcome to page four and the last leg of this mammoth yearly review! You will have noticed I have been busy this past year so far and October was no slower! This month saw a saber inspired by a Clone Wars character, Riff Tamson and it was very watery. I was then honoured by PsychoSith with a beautiful present in the form of a hand drawn image of my Thor inspired Asguard saber – I was lost for words. Then I featured a saber for Obi-Wan Kenobi…a saber for Spiderman at Halloween…. and I revealed my masterpiece…the Graflex inspired “The Grail”…
I was so pleased with my Grail Saber as the Graflex is considered the ultimate in saber ownership and saber building. All sabersmiths (craftspeople) and collectors strive to build or own one as it was the Graflex that launched the popularoty of Star Wars and sabers back in 1977. Well I had to build my Graflex as a 3D model but I think it still counts and allows me to say I am a Master Builder now. Your kind comments on it would support that opinion so thank you all who left messages on it.
November! Nearly there! This month was hectic as it was dominated by the launch of Disney/LucasFilm’s Mandalorian TV show on the new streaming service Disney+. Now I don’t have this service but that didn’t stop me designing a hilt based on the Bounty Hunter featured in the show! I also modeled a version in the colours of the most famous bounty hunter in Star Wars lore, Boba Fett. Darkside Dragon Katana was an old design I rebuilt in Blender that I hadn’t shown yet. Finally, as the countdown to The Rise of Skywalker had begun in earnest I posted yet another “Master Series” design – this time a repaired Graflex belonging to REY!….
December! The last month of this crazy year of designing. During this time I somehow found time to socialise online and watched a few YouTube videos which led me to make friends with a nice young lady named Nothin Nerdy and I designed a hilt for her. I followed that with a pair of curved sabers for the character Zori Bliss who appears in The Rise of Skywalker (portrayed by Kerri Russell). Then as the crowning glory to my year I finally revealed my Luke Skywalker replica from Return of the Jedi….complete with full double crystal chambers and a working activation control box!…
I’m sorry but I have lost count of the number of hilts now, and believe it or not I still have unpublished designs I couldn’t find time to post this year! The last two images above are a sneak peek of my latest project and collection of some sabers that may or may not appear in The Rise of Skywalker. You will see much more of these in 2020 as I will post full colour rendered galleries of these cutting edge, hottest designs!
I do need to apologise that this post is a few hours late but I was surprised by Mrs Tyeth with another pair of tickets to go and view The Rise of Skywalker today….THIS TIME IN 3D!! I have only just got back and finished typing this out! However the movie was even better than the first time I watched the film.
I hope you have enjoyed this marathon look back at my 2019 collection. Thank you so much for all your support, likes, comments and follows – they mean a big deal to me and keeps me producing these designs and models. May The Force Be With You now and all through 2020 and please be sure to call back to see future posts. Till next time…..
p.s. Sorry for any typos, I am worn out now….
