Not as clumsy or random as a blaster, an elegant weapon from a more elegant time...

My Fourth Lightsaber

[Menacer Saber]
[Menacer Saber] [Menacer Saber]

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.

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.
