“Mandalawrian Beskar Special Edition” Saber

Hello Everybody, welcome back. Yesterday I posted a quick announcement of a new project I am working on based on the new upcoming The Clone Wars Season 7 show, so I only have a short post today showing something I have been working on. Recently I have been in “negotiations” with the banking clans on Earth and I have decided to enter the world of stocks and shares, commodities and ForEx! But first I would need an investment or collateral sooo I went and had a rummage around my workshop to see if I had anything of value to trade. Well low and behold something appeared in an episode of the TV show “The Mandalorian” that reminded me of some objects I picked up many many years ago and those objects looked like one of these….Beskar Brick

This is an ingot made of Mandalorian steel which is also known as Beskar! Beskar is a very valuable (and treasured by Mandalorians) metal used to create battle armour. It is resistant to blaster fire and can even deflect lightsabers so it can be very useful making it valuable. Guess what? I found a crate FULL of these ingots buried under some boxes of lightsaber parts and I have these….Ingot Stash 1 MK

I have quite a stash and more than enough to start investing in financial endeavours….however, I have kept a few in reserve and done something special with those bars of Beskar…..I have forged a Mandalawrian Saber in solid Beskar! This very limited edition of my saber looks like this….

As you can see this hilt has the same texture as the bars/ingots of Beskar! And the pattern of wavey lines is known as a “Damascus pattern”. It is seen in metalworking found on Earth but has been a feature of Mandalorian metalwork for thousands of years. The metal is very versatile and can be forged, melted down to form a foam, hammered into plates, used in machinery and architecture….just about anything. So this saber has a very big advantage against other sabers….because of the properties of Beskar, it can as I mention above deflect lightsaber blades and momentarily disrupt that blade so the saber temporarily malfunctions. Imagine you have this Beskar hilt and your opponent makes contact with their blade on your hilt…their blade would shut down giving you a short time to counter attack. Your saber would also be less likely to get chopped in half! I kinda like this saber but I have other new stuff lined up so I will give you all a bit of a sneak peek.

As I posted yesterday I have modeled the new saberstaff seen in the trailer for The Clone Wars and one half of the staff is the remaining half of Darth Maul’s famous double bladed weapon, and the second half is made up of a saber owned by a former Sith named Asajj Ventress! You may have seen her in the Clone Wars cartoon as she was an apprentice of Count Dooku. She used twin red curved hilts but she also used a yellow regular saber hilt too. And I have modeled that to construct the new Maul staff I posted yesterday. Here is a pre-render preview of my progress on this Ventress hilt so far…Ventress MatCap 1 MK

There are a few tweaks I need to make but I feel this is a solid basis to improve on. I will feature this and an article on Ventress in a future post complete with Glamour Shots and maybe an animation! So that just about wraps up this post and my Beskar build, I hope you liked it, I think it is quite distinctive.

Thank you all for looking in on this design and for supporting me and my site. As always you are much appreciated and I am proud to say my viewing stats are rising meaning word of my efforts is spreading so thanks if you have told friends and family or social media about FTSabersite. I have more new designs to bring you including a couple of curved hilts, a saber that nods to Obi-Wan Kenobi and I may have a tribute to an upcoming movie with a beautiful sword! I sincerely hope you’ll call back to see those. Till next time…..

Coming Soon! CW7 and “CW7-AM7 Staff”

Hello Everybody! Well a new trailer for The Clone Wars Season 7 dropped recently (yesterday I think) and in it was an exciting new something! Guess what? I have already built that shiny new red double bladed object!

Ventress Maul MatCap1 MK

A full article with full colour Glamour Shot gallery (and just maybe an animation) will be posted here on FTSabersite very soon!

However this weekend I enter the world of commodities, stock exchanges and ForEx as I have found a few ingots of a very valuable material in the back of my workshop and decided to do something special to my “Mandalawrian” saber….you won’t want to miss it!

Thanks for looking in on this announcement and I hope you’ll return for my “Mandalawrian – Beskar Special Edition”.

Rey’s “Crown” Lightsaber – Inspired by The Rise of Skywalker saber.

Hello Everybody! Today is the day that I complete my The Rise of Skywalker saber collection so….

SPOILERS! SPOILERS! SPOILERS! DANGER, WILL ROBINSON! Oops! Wrong franchise! If you haven’t seen the new Star Wars movie then you may not want to continue reading as this post may contain info on events and stuff that may or may not happen in the film ok?

If you are still with me then I assume you have seen the film and I can now say I have built the saber that appeared for about 10 seconds at the very end of The Rise of Skywalker. And I have to have a little boast because I did predict what happened way back in September of 2016! Let me explain, a long time ago when The Force Awakens was big news, I posted an article about the new character Rey and her staff and in it I predicted she would make a lightsaber out of her staff! I did! Here is the link to that post Scavenger’s Twins Lightsabers (a pair of sabers for Rey)  Ok, I did give her new sabers a green and purple blade but this was before Disney changed the canon Lore that dictates lightsaber colours! I said that Rey would use the end of her staff to form the handle and I used an online virtual saber builder app (provided by Saberforge) to mock up how it might have looked like. I think I came pretty close (maybe I had a Force Vision!) but always knew I could do better and build a near exact replica so now I have Blender 3D I have and here is a gallery showing my 2016 attempts and a few preview images of my new 2020 Blender hilts…

Wow! That was actually a bit of a scary flashback for me! To think how far I have progressed from the early days of FTSabersite and those basic pictures I produced. But back to the new saber, I modeled this as soon as I had finished the Leia saber when I got home from the cinema. I had both saber models built within 48 hours of watching the film but as I mentioned in the Leia post last week I couldn’t post the designs as I didn’t want to spoil anything for you all. However other members in the lightsaber manufacturing industry have posted their versions this past week or two complimenting themselves how fast they did it. Well….if you had read my year in review post and took a close look at the title image you might just see…Rey’s new saber!….Take a look behind the spectacles!…..New Year Review Plate Yep! There it is! Rey’s new lightsaber in all it’s glory and posted before my compatriots posted theirs. OK I’ll stop boasting now but I was kinda proud that I had come up with the designs so quick and that they are fairly accurate. But you will want to see a few close up Glamour Shots, so here they are….

The hilt is the end of Rey’s staff and has an emitter that is reminiscent of Darth Maul’s saberstaff. But Rey’s saber has a set of diamond shaped plates that hinge open and closed when the saber is switched on/off. These plates form the shape of a “crown” around the blade. The blade is in my renders, a yellow colour but there has been an argument online as to what colour the saber is, some say yellow, while some say it is amber….it is just like the Blue/Black or Gold/White dress incident all over again. But mine is “Optimism Yellow” which is the colour as described by the producers of the film. The hand wrap is made of a leather like material and is physically wrapped around the hilt handle as a strip! Finally there is the activation switch…that is the round cog shaped wheel below the emitter. Instead of depressing a switch or sliding a slider to operate the saber, you actually rotate the cog clockwise/anti-clockwise to switch it on or off. Want to see a video to demonstrate? Of course you do….so here you go another quick animation for you….

I managed to get away from just rotating the camera around the hilt and I even got some close up zoomed in detail shots of the “Activation Wheel Cog” in action! Plus I added some Snap!Hiss or sound effects as the saber lights up and switches off.

I am getting near to the end of this post and as I mentioned above this was the final hilt in my The Rise of Skywalker Collection so I thought you might like to see ALL my models in one place so I gathered them together and posed them for a family glamour shot….I hope you like it….

At the top is the famous Darkside Rey folding staff (see the post HERE ) below that is Rey’s repaired Graflex saber once owned by Anakin and Luke Skywalker (see that hilt HERE ). Next down on the left is Leia Organa’s saber from last week’s post (click HERE to view that) and of course finally we have Rey S….well, Rey’s new saber!

Phew! That was another long post but thank you so much for checking it out, I hope you enjoyed this series of designs. I really enjoyed building them but now I have to search the galaxy for new inspiration for designs as the Skywalker saga has ended…but I think I can find some new original designs in my head. I hope you will return to see those in future posts. Thank you so much for all the support, comments likes and follows you have left, whether you are a first time visitor or a regular to FTSabersite, you are all valued and appreciated. Till next time….

“Leia’s Knightsaber” for Princess/General Leia – Inspired by TROS

Hello Everybody, today I have a BIG SPOILER WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! There may be details in this post that might hint at events or situations in the new movie The Rise of Skywalker. If you haven’t seen the film and don’t want to know anything about what may have happened then I don’t mind if you stop reading here! But if you’d like to see one of the newest saber designs in Star Wars then read on, I have preview images, full colour renders and an animation of what I think is a very classical saber.

So, if you are still with me, part way through the film we see Rey attempt to escape her destiny, for a while, by flying back to Ach-too and hiding on the island. She destroys the ship she arrived in and as the ship burns Rey throws the Skywalker legacy saber into the flames. Only for a certain person from the past to catch the saber and hand it back to her so she could continue her training. Rey had been training with General Leia at the Resistance Base. The figure from the past convinces Rey to continue to her destiny and gives her something that his sister would have wanted Rey to use in her quest. That object was a lightsaber. And not just any lightsaber. It was so beautiful that I had to model it in Blender as soon as I returned from the cinema….this was what I came up with…

Organa Skywalker MatCap 5 MK
Leia Knightsaber first model attempt

Now this is pretty close to the hilt seen in the movie considering I made it from memory! I had no reference pictures to work from but I knew there were a few tweaks I needed to make. Soon a few pictures were posted on forums and message boards and I saw how I needed to fix the switch and pommel. About twenty minutes work later I had come up with this….

Organa Skywalker MatCap 7 MK
Leia’s Knightsaber – Second build.

As you can see I reworked the switch, reshaped the pommel and defined the triple ring bands around the hilt. I also took the opportunity to thicken the neck tube. I felt I had this design finished (I didn’t add the loop to hang it on a belt as it just gets in the way) so set to work making it the proper colours and materials. Here is my glamour shot gallery….

The saber is elegant in rose gold and silver with the same blue blade as the Graflex. And it shouldn’t be such a surprise that this hilt is so beautiful…it was built and used by Leia! This is the weapon of a Jedi….and yes Leia trained with Luke after Return of the Jedi but when she saw a vision of a possible future stopped training and the hilt was kept in storage by her brother. But I mean, this saber looks so sleek and elegant. The ringed emitter and thin neck is reminiscent of Luke’s and Old Obi-Wan’s hilts. It is also this trinity of characters I think the banded rings represent, one for Luke, one for her “only hope” Obi-Wan and the third representing herself. I have also shown the saber with a purple/pink blade as Carrie Fisher always stated that purple was the colour she would have liked to wield had Leia been given a saber to use in the films.

And that brings me to the subject of films and video. I have managed to compile a little video and because I have learnt a new animating trick I can nearly double the length of the clip. So here is that new animation….

I am still getting to grips with cinematography so it is a basic orbit around the hilt but I feel that shows off the saber best. But I did try to find a suitable location to film this video at…it looks very much like the planet Ajan Kloss, location of the Resistance Base.Finally, I have a couple of Darkside versions, just because I had the thought “I wonder how the story might have panned out had Leia given in when she was tortured by Darth Vader on the Death Star all those years ago”…would she have turned to the Darkside? We know the answer, Leia was too strong and survived but here are the dark hilts for show…

Ok folks, I sincerely hope you like this model and the wait and the teasers were worth it. I certainly hope I did justice to the legacy of both Leia the character and the fabulous actor Carrie Fisher. I have so far now built three of the hilts seen in The Rise of Skywalker but I still have one final hilt to showcase that we see at the end of the movie which has caused some heated debates online. So I would be honoured if you would call back next week as I complete my Rise of Skywalker collection.

Thank you so much for checking this saber out, I hope I haven’t spoiled too much (I don’t think I did) and thank you for all your support. Whether you are a first time viewer or a regular visitor you are much appreciated as you have now propelled me past 16,000 views! Incredible. Till next time….

The Rise of Skywalker – For Tyeth Collection…Coming Soon!

Hello Everybody and yes, you have read the title of this post correctly! I am announcing that my “Spoiler Free Zone” is being lifted and we will be able to chat about the movie….but don’t worry I will put WARNINGS at the top of the posts just in case you haven’t yet seen the film and want to avoid finding out details! The reason I am lifting the exclusion zone is that folks on the internet are talking about the film and some certain lightsabers in particular….WELL, I have modeled those sabers already and want to post them as I am quite pleased how they turned out. So here are the teaser posters for the two hilts I have coming up (I already built the Dark Rey folding hilt and Rey’s Graflex last year as they appeared in the trailers!). OK enough talk here are the teasers….

Leia Plate Teaser 1
Coming this weekend!

And if this wasn’t exciting enough, I have the big “secret” saber belonging to Rey everyone is talking about…Rey Plate Teaser 1

I will be bringing you these two hilts this weekend and Rey’s will appear next weekend! You won’t want to miss them….but if you have a good close look around my site you might see Rey’s saber hidden in plain view!

A can’t wait to post these and again I hope you will join me to see them. I need to say a big thank you to you, my friends because I am on the verge of breaking 16000 views! Word is spreading about FTSabersite and little old me so thanks for sharing links and telling your friends. Till this weekend….

Happy New Year! FT’s review of 2019

Hello Everybody and HAPPY NEW YEAR! Yes we have entered a new year and a new decade…we are in 2020! But before we dive into the new adventures ahead I thought I’d take a 20/20 hindsight review of 2019 (< See what I did there? 2020 hindsight? 😀 ) And boy was I busy during the past 12 months!

I counted my posts and the designs I had shared and I have posted over 45 sabers plus variations in the space of 52 weeks …so lets jump back to January and take a look at what I posted….

January started with a saber inspired from a Star Wars computer game known as Star Wars Knights Of The Old Republic (SW KOTOR) and the first saber you build in the game. I also posted the first in a series of hilts inspired by Ralph McQuarrie’s Stormtrooper concept art, even a saber based on the 80’s TV show Charlie’s Angels. Finally I posted a lightsaber staff for Satele Shan, another character from SWTOR the sequel to SW KOTOR.

February featured designs from Resident Evil, Lord of the Rings, a saber for Superman and a hilt for Padme Amidala. I particularly liked the Superman hilt I built for my friend TheVintageToyAdvertiser as part of a series of challenges, and the Lord of the Rings hilt because I had to make sure I did a good job and pleased both Star Wars fans and LOTR fans – Not Easy!

Again I really liked the LOTR hilt as I got creative, making the pommel resemble the Eye of Sauron! However, even Padme’s hilt had custom etching and an activation swith made to look like her pendant given to her by little Ani!

Marching on in March,I presented my crossover hilt designs for another Sci-Fi franchise – Star Trek (yes I said it!). I created a hilt for the Klingon warriors and one particular half Klingon named B’Elanna Torres from the show Voyager. A new character appeared in the movie SOLO called Enfys Nest so I posted a design in her honour and back on earth I had another challenge from TVTA. He wanted a saber based on Starsky and Hutch and the famous red car, the Gran Torino!….

The Swoop Saber had a hidden Crystal Chamber built into it, while the Starsky and Hutch hilt had a blue police light as the on/off switch and even had working headlights buried in all the chrome bodywork!

OK folks, that covers the first three months! To continue our journey through 2019 please click the link to go to page two where we will discover what April brought!…see you on page two…..

Nothin’ Nerdy honoured me on her YouTube channel! A big thank you!

Hello Everybody, today I have had to make a very quick change of plans! I was relaxing in my Coruscant apartment enjoying the holiday spirits when I decided to check out some videos on YouTube (there isn’t much entertainment on my cable package). Well I had a very pleasant surprise, my friend Frankie – aka Nothin’ Nerdy has posted a video to honour the saber I designed for her and I am speechless. It is a little unreal to hear your name being spoken in a video and for the person to be saying such nice things about you. I’d like to thank Frankie and to let her know it was my pleasure to design her saber and produce the accompanying artwork/animations. So to my loyal visitors, followers and friends, if you could spare a few minutes and check out Frankie’s YouTube, Twitch and Facebook pages I’d be very grateful. Here are the links:

And I decided to revisit Frankie’s sabers and gave it a new colour scheme…

Just a little modification to keep me entertained, and speaking of entertainment I also continued my work on a collection of sabers I gave you a sneak peek of last week. Those items that may or may not appear in The Rise of Skywalker. Well I refined some details and I thought a nice group picture would look cool so here is another quick sneak peek of my new collection…(Only in gold…as full galleries of these new designs will feature in future posts!)….Rise of Skywalker Collection MatCap 2 MK

Two of the hilts you have seen already but they look good all together. I will end this post here as I had to type this off the top of my head, but I will have an end of year review of a few of my favourite designs I have showcased these past twelve months, there’ll be a bit of a mix!

So thanks once more to Frankie, I am really proud to have a friend like you and to my visitors, followers and friends that support me tirelessly here thank you too. Please call back to see future posts with more sabers and fun. Till next time….

Some new “things” that may (or not) appear in the movie Rise of Skywalker!

Hello Everybody, just a quick post with two images to show I can’t relax and have a few days off…after watching the new movie I tinkered in my workshop and came up with these…

Full colour articles and pictures on these two hilts will appear on FTSabersite very soon when the “spoiler-free” period ends for The Rise of Skywalker!

I am going to take a few days off over Christmas and I hope all of you have a happy, peaceful festive period however you choose to observe it! Thanks for looking in on this quick announcement, I hope you’ll join me for the full reveals.Till next time….

For Tyeth’s Rise of Skywalker Review

Hello Everybody, I have just got back from my local cinema after viewing The Rise of Skywalker. And I gotta say it was better than the negative comments would suggest I saw and read online. Of course this is just my first thought opinions, other people may not like it but I have been watching these films for over 36 years and I enjoyed this one. It was an adventure from the moment we hear John William’s Intro Theme.

I can’t say too much obviously but I will say some things/characters that weren’t handled well in The Last Jedi were “put right” and dealt with better this time around. Also don’t blink during the first half hour as it is fast moving.

I mentioned I had watched these movies for around three decades so I did see a lot of nostalgic nods to previous films which was fun. I also got to see Threepio get an important job to do in the story aside from saying “This is madness….we’re doomed!” which was cool. The music was outstanding as usual with John Williams winding his way through the film holding it together, binding the contents – I sometimes think he and his music are the Force! There were funny lines and throwbacks that made me chuckle.

On the acting side of things, all of the on screen talent gave great performances…and regards the actual story, I only had one major niggle.

There was a good solid end to the finale that made sense and made me happy and sad at the same time….how else could it have ended? A balance.

So this has been my initial thoughts on The Rise of Skywalker. Again others may disagree (I’m not the most experienced film critic!) but I thought it was worth my money to view it. Oh wait! I got tickets as a birthday present but you know what I mean and finally….yes I was inspired by one or two things that may or may not have appeared in the movie so I will be busy over the festive period making 3D models!

Thank you for looking in on this, my mini first thoughts review. If you are planning to go and see TROS I hope you find it as entertaining as I did. And I hope you will return and let me know what you thought of it (but please don’t spoil it for others ok!). I’ll be taking things easier over the next week or two so if we don’t get to chat I hope you all have a great holiday season however you choose to observe it! Till next time….

The Rise of Skywalker is in cinemas around the globe now and is  Trademark/Copyright of Disney/LucasFilm.

Frankie’s “Nothin’ Nerdy” Saber – a 1000 Subscriber gift

Hello Everybody for an impromptu “Special Gift” post! I have recently “met” a nice young lady by the name of  “Nothin Nerdy” also known as Frankie, who has her own YoutTube and Twitch streaming channels. On these channels Frankie livestreams while she plays Star Wars computer games such as “Star Wars: The Old Republic” (SWTOR) and the new “Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order”. However I was introduced to Frankie when I saw her video on YouTube where she was unboxing her new custom saber. I left a comment on her video and to my surprise Frankie replied and from there we started a conversation and we got to know each other a bit. Frankie helped me get into using message boards and live streaming (giving me instructions on how to sign up etc) and I introduced her to some of my designs. Well, Frankie had the ambition of reaching 1000 subscribers on YouTube before the new year and I kinda suggested that if she reached that milestone I would design a custom saber just for her. Frankie reached that milestone in the past few days and as I am a Jedi I kept my promise and here is the saber…Now Frankie just follow the instructions and reach out…call to your saber!…

See Frankie, I kept my word as a Jedi, I hope you like it! It has a double pronged/shrouded emitter (which are all the rage at the moment!), gold accents and trim, as well as an illuminated activation switch. The saber even has a “Double Crystal Chamber” with a red and green crystal cube. And just to make sure we know you are a Jedi it has the Order’s logo on the pommel. Oh! I just realised you can’t see those details in the reveal video so here are a few images for you (I know you like gold!)….

These pictures are textured using a basic preview material making the model gold all over so you can’t really see it in full “Technicolour” so how about I take you on a virtual tour of your hilt? Here is a short video to show off some of the details…

I think you can see all the details in this video and as you are a fan of the Jedi Consular character in SWTOR I made a double bladed staff version for you too! The saber also sports the pink blade you hinted at so this is quite unique (and the switch matches too). I hope this saber and staff serve you long and well, I’ll arrange with you to send some full size images and videos for you to keep OK? Here are a few of them…

Now I’d like to share a few links to Frankie’s Social Media platforms as she deserves as much support as possible so if you like Star Wars, computer gaming or generally having fun celebrating all things Star Wars then please check them out.

Nothin’ Nerdy YouTube: Nothin’ Nerdy YouTube Channel

Nothin’ Nerdy Twitch: Nothin’ Nerdy’s Twitch Channel

Nothin’ Nerdy Facebook: Nothin’ Nerdy’s Facebook

Please visit Frankie and help her channels out, you will have a great time as the community that has built up around her are a great bunch.

Thanks Frankie for becoming a friend of mine and I hope you have continued success in the future…and speaking of futures that includes “Level Up Days” and guess who just got a little bit older today? Yes For Tyeth just became “For T Four” (Forty Four) years young and I just wanted to share with you a few pics of my birthday presents I got!

Ok I think that just about wraps up this special “Gift Giving” post, I hope you all enjoyed it and again to Frankie, thank you for being such a warm welcoming member of the SW community and inviting me to join your circle of friends and I hope you will feel part of the For Tyeth family here!

To all my followers, new and regular (including those in Brazil – I see you!) thanks so much for your continued support it means a lot. Please call back for future posts as I hope to do a review of “The Rise of Skywalker” and I have a whole storeroom full of new saber designs to show you all. Till next time….
