Not as clumsy or random as a blaster, an elegant weapon from a
more elegant time...
My Fourth Lightsaber
The "Menacer" Saber I call this one, why? Is it menacing? Well perhaps, but really
because I made it from the parts from a Sega Menacer light gun from an old Sega Genesis.
The gun itself may become a custom blaster one day, it's sitting in the workshop, all
painted black, waiting for some customizing.
|1 Sega Menacer
|1 1 1/2" Chrome plumbing pipe extra
|4 Brass knureld rivets
|1 Light fixture button/cap
||$1.99 assorted light acc pack
|1 windshield wipre
|1 tube black caulking
|1 brass finishing washer
|1 steel door latch (?)
What I Did
This was my piecework saber, put together with a lot of junk I had laying around
my work bench. I had grabbed an old Sega Menacer gun from work that was due to
be junked, thinking I could maybe make a nice custom blaster for my Royal Guard
costume from it. I took the two scopes off it, and fiddled around with these two
separate tubes. I toyed with gluing them together, since they were angled such that
they would fit, but it looked kinda goofy. So, I shoved a left over piece of pipe
(about 4") into the middle, and voila, the saber took shape. A few buttons later,
and the latch thingy (painted gold) on one end to clip on my belt, we were almost set.
With a few leftover scraps of windshield wiper, I glued them on the sides, caulked the
seam between the two scopes, and the pipe, and called it a deal. My custom saber
was complete, even looked like a double bladed one possibly. But we'll just keep
folks guessing, and reveal that when we need to, just like Maul did. ;)
Well, this is what she started out as eh? If anyone has any cool custom ideas
for the "blaster" part, let me know!
May The Force Be With You.
