First look at my new hilt!

Hello Everybody, so I have had a day to admire and mess around pretending I am a Jedi with my new saber – but I imagine you will want to see it too! So I have a couple of pictures for you today. I apologise they aren’t the best quality but I only have access to a mobile phone camera at the moment, my “Android” tablet bricked up last year and I haven’t been able to replace it yet….the Jawas haven’t been in my neighbourhood to sell me a new ‘droid 😀 !!

As you can see it already is a BEAUTY (the saber not me!) It is a Qui-gon Jinn inspired model called the “SSQY Super Stunt” made by a company named One Replicas. The company is well known for making great (and much sought after) hilts but sadly I couldn’t afford their early released products but I managed to snag a hold of this one! It is not quite “screen accurate” as the grooves on the hand grip aren’t as deep as they are on the real life prop Liam Neeson used in The Phantom Menace but I don’t care I love this hilt anyway! It is 28.5cm long (11.3 inches) but is sooo slim  – it measures in at 3.8cm at it’s widest, that’s 1.5 inches! As a result the chamber down the middle where all the electronics have to fit is only 25mm or 1 inch in diameter….that’s going to make it a VERY TIGHT fit. Luckily I have plans and there are some parts which will make installing this saber a little easier. But for now I am back to saving up funds to buy those.

I hope you like the hilt, I know I love it. It was the saber design I originally wanted to own over two years ago but couldn’t afford the models that were offered by other manufacturers. But thanks to One Replicas they have brought my dream of owning this classic lightsaber a little closer to reality. Thank you for checking out this post and please keep an eye open for future updates, they won’t be as regular as my scheduled designing posts but should still be fun!

F.T.) Aren’t you a little short to be a Postal Worker?  S.T.) Very funny Tyeth!

As you can see my little postal worker has brought me the first pieces of my build and if you want to know what’s in the box then I will have a few pictures to share with you in my next scheduled post (and hopefully the pics will be better quality – I only have a mobile phone camera 😩 but you should be able to make things out!)

My adventure and journey has begun…I hope you will stick around to see how I get on. Thank you for looking in today. Till next time.

p.s. And if anyone knows where I can get a second hand for my Stormtrooper friend I would be very grateful if you could let me know! I saved this trooper after he was discarded because he suffered an injury and lost one 😀
