I'm a little confused, what is this to do with the CB for ESB.....don't even who lightsaber that is ? :look:
No details or background story for the digital design ? :hmpf:
I can see a lot of hard work and planning has gone in to it, but that is all......clear as the river Yarra ! :laugh:

I like the intricate work inside the blade, but your response to the first response makes no sense.

Nice work though, any plans for a brickbuilt version?

*stupid autotranslator. try myself.

i am not a fan of SW.

whose lightsaber? maybe it's Luke's  :classic:
about details and picture for background. why?
so all can be see. it's a simple LDD lightsaber and nothing else.

about plans for a real version.
may be someday. now i have only 5 of 24 panels.

sorry, if i wrote nonsense again.  :classic:

How is this Luke's lightsaber again?

Or did you mean this one?

At its present state, this MOC is little more than a bunch of cylinders - far too plain to represent any lightsaber. I suggest you give us Star Wars fans some credit for appreciating the art of prop making and put more effort into having this more closely resemble what it's supposed to be.

Not bad for a base design but it would look better if you modeled it of an acual lightsaber though. If your just getting the design down pat its alright, you have the blade retracting back into the hilt which is clever. Once your design works you can try to mod it to look like an ESP lightsaber. If not you shouldnt have contributed to the Community build for ESP. If you just want a generic lightsaber im sure us Star Wars fans would like to see it finished but if not got anything to do with ESP it shouldnot be posted as CB SW V.

Keep going with the design I want to see the final product. P.S some Star Wars fans are very hard to please. :thumbup:

Wonderful set of colored telescoping Technic tubes, sofo13th! Should be useful in lots of other creations! Wait, it's supposed to be what? Well, you've got the bare bones down, now add some detail and shaping so that people will actually be able to point to it and say, 'this is a lightsaber'! Good luck! k33P 0N bRiCKIn'! :classic: :thumbup:  :wink:

Hi sofo13th,

Welcome to EB and thanks for sharing this simple yet functional generic lightsaber design. I admit that I don't have the 'mechanistic' design aptitude that you've shown in this digital design, so kudos for that. :thumbup: And pls. do not get discouraged with some of the negative comments you've read and instead try to take them as constructive criticism to make your future designs and builds better.

Indeed. There's a very thin line between friendly encouragement towards a newcomer and just outright being harsh and rude. :hmpf:

Having attempted to build lightsabers similar to this in my youth from paper products, I can appreciate the effort that goes into this. It looks like you've got a good basis for the design, and now you have the fun parts to look forward to - detailing and shaping. :classic:

I can only confirm what other members told you; the base idea is nice, but you really have to shape this thing to make it look like a real lightsaber. Good luck!

to fallenangel309

slow down.

you call that a lightsaber but it only lightsaber's handle.

in my model has a blade that extends from the handle as lightsaber's blade. almost.
so yeah. here it is the lightsaber.

as you correctly said - it's techniс. the main advantage of techniс-models is not an exact copy, but the possibility of movement, mobility, action ... and other synonyms.

go through point by point:
exact copy - no;
approximate copy - yes;
action - double yes.

2 points of 3 is not as bad as it seems. or do you need with sound effects? and that would be a LEGO lightsaber cut steel, flesh and bones?

i did it for fun. or for fans. some. if they like, so i did it for them. not for you.

and this, specially for you, lightsaber of Da...
:devil:
oh, i forgot. the "colored telescoping technic tubes" of Darth Vader.

Again interesting design, colours, though isn't the blade a little too short given the length of the hilt ? :look:

Nice idea using those parts to make a LEGO version of those official Lightsaber toys.  :laugh:

It's about the same scale as Mini-fig lightsabers.  :wink:

I think it's because the hilt interior can only accommodate two 'unit lengths' of the blade, hence the short length relative to 'standard' ligthsabers.

Come to think of it, for minifig-scale the proportions seem accurate.

I loved the first version and it was quite clever, but this one is even better, a mix of the nice technique work and a actual recognisable coloured pattern in the hilt :thumbup: :thumbup:.
