Glow-In-The-Dark Lightsabers

27 posts in this topic

I don't know why anybody else hasn't thought of this before (or at least hasn't posted anything about it), but here it is: the most obvious use of the glow-in-the-dark sticks from Tiny Turbo #8150 "ZX-Turbo"... Glow-In-The-Dark Lightsabers! :oh: They are way more practical than Light-Up-Lightsabers, but don't look as well at day-light; they just are this colorless, milky, not really transparent color. But it's just really cool to equip some of your SW figs on display with some of those and seeing them wield actually glowing sabers after you turn off the light in your room! :sweet:

Here are some pics of Yoda in different tones of darkness, holding a GITDLS.

And here are some pics of my Mustafar Duel Vig with GITDLSs!

Pretty sweet, huh? I think, I will update my Mustafar vig to feature a transparent floor with a Light-Brick underneath it so that the Lava can glow too! :sweet:

Any comments, ideas, or requests? :classic:

Awesome idea Oky Wan Kenobi the lightsabers look so cool with this glow-in-dark pieces :cry_happy: . I think this is a better way to make the lightsabers "glow" than the crappy light-up lightsabers. Thanks for the pics :wink:

Thanks for the compliments, and thank you, Asuka, for the Lightsaber Sound Cookbook link! :sweet:

And, yes, Tiny Turbo #8150 "ZX-Turbo" is the only current set the GITDLSs come in, but I think there will be another Tiny Turbo with the set number 7613 that will have them too. :wink: This is the one I'm talking about:

I´m glad that it was interesting for you. Of course, there´s no real need for some extraordinary homebrewing if you can get your honey just for free.... :tongue:

Cool idea Oki Wan! I think it would be great if you'd get the lava to glow, too!

Thanks for clearing that up, KimT. :thumbup: Some people just can't read. :hmpf:

Btw, could this be indexed? Or are the pics too big?

On a side note, I actually did that, and it looks awesome! When I get the time to figure out a good way to take pics of it, I'll post them. :wink:

I'll index this shortly.

Must have missed it when I reworked the indexes in the Star Wars forum.

As for picture size, I'll let you slip this time :tongue:

Thanks for the ebay link, though. Those look really neat; I'd love to have some of those! :sweet:

I'm sorry, guys, but I'm very busy right now, so pics of the light-up Mustafar Vig will have to wait. :sad:

Indexed as a MOD, since it's some kind of modification to existing minifigs or something :grin:

Well... after this holiday season I'll be 100% broke. I'll need to start saving up, then I'll but 1000 of those! :laugh:

I never even knew those sets existed until now! Thanks again!
