Hello Everybody, I hope you all liked yesterday’s surprise package of EX-23 Lightsaber. It was difficult to actually write the post without giving away too much of the plot surrounding X-23 Laura Kinney. I didn’t want to spoil the upcoming film Logan for anyone planning on going to see it, and I am having the same problems writing this post about her father and the sabers I have designed. However I think I can manage not to reveal too much. I can safely say that James Howlett, born in the late 1880’s, in the town of Cold Lake, Alberta, Canada has had a hard time in life. During his childhood, the groundskeeper of the farm his parents owned, was wrongly accused of rape and thrown off the property. However this man returned and killed James’ father. In a very strange twist of fate, James killed the groundskeeper using Bone Claws which extended from the back of his hands when he was angered. This was the sign of his Mutation. The irony is that the groundskeeper, Thomas Logan was in fact James’ biological father. After this and another tragedy involving his first love, James went into hiding. This is the beginnings of the character we know as Wolverine and I will now present my first design for him…this is Logan X…
Logan X Hilt
Logan X Emitter
Logan X Switch
Logan X Body and Pommel
Logan X Pommel 2
Logan X Horizontal
Logan X Vertical Up
Logan X Vertical Down
This saber represents Wolverine as we know him in the X-Men. In James Howlett’s storyline he discovered the truth about his father and “adopted” the name Logan. Due to his Mutation, Logan possessed enhanced animal-like strength and reflexes, and the ability to self heal from many types of wound and infection or disease. As a result he lived a long time taking part in both World Wars and later became a Soldier of Fortune. He was also captured and experimented on by a group of scientists who implanted a metallic coating that covered his Bone Claws, making them even more lethal. Eventually he became a member of the X-Men team. This saber hopefully reflects the look of Wolverine as he became known. The emitter has three spines to represent his three claws and also looks like the cowl of his early costumes. Further down the hilt are stripes, again to resemble the costume, while the spines continue down the hilt to look like his famous Sideburn beard! The blade is yellow and the crystal chamber shines blue, true to the colour scheme of his outfit. And finally, the pommel has TWO prongs, hinting at his future legacy….which I will continue to tell you about on page 2 so please click the button below to see the SECOND saber for Old Man Logan.
Hello Everybody, today I have a bit of a surprise package that I have been keeping under wraps, but recent topics I’ve posted on and conversations I’ve had persuaded me to reveal the next designs. Yesterday I spoke about Rey and her path in The Last Jedi, and where her origins lie. One possible theory I didn’t mention was that Rey may be a Clone of some sort. Well another film due out in a few days time (1st or 2nd March depending on where you live) tells the story of another young clone, and her father. Who is he?… He’s a very famous Mutant….
I have designed sabers for other Superheroes so this is a design for the Clone-Daughter of that famous Mutant…This saber is EX-23…
EX-23 Emitter 2
EX-23 Body and Pommel
EX-23 Vertical Up
EX-23 Vertical Down
This saber is for Laura Kinney, a young girl who is the cloned daughter of a Mutant Superhero, who we will meet in tomorrow’s post. The emitter has two prongs, very similar to the metallic claws Laura shares with her father. In the Star Wars universe the colour of a Lightsaber is determined by the builder’s character and their meditation focused on the crystal inside. EX-23’s blade is an amber colour, neither Light nor Dark – Good or Evil, as Laura’s actions are the product of the genetic modification the scientists responsible for her creation inflicted on her. Laura as a result of these modifications had to be a tough survivor and goes through some terrible ordeals and this is reflected in the hilt handle design. It is made from parts picked up here and there and put together to form a no-frills but lethal weapon. Not that Laura really needs any extra weapons as this picture shows:
Another reason I am posting this design today is that the film Logan, is released at the same time as I plan to bring to you that long awaited set of SIX sabers. Yes, the First of the Six will be here on the First of March! I promised they were coming and here is proof they exist coming through the portal…
Now you didn’t think I would post a picture showing them without disguising them just a little? (You wouldn’t need to come back otherwise 😀 ) So I hope you will return for tomorrow’s design showcasing my sabers for Laura’s father, Logan, and the big set of six on the 1st March! Thank you for visiting today and for your continued support of FTSabersite. Till next time.
