(MOC) Krull Glaive, Version 4.0

Recommended Posts

Version 1.0 was made way back in April 2008.

Version 2.0 came shortly afterward, in May 2008.

Version 3.0 was published in July 2013.

I redesigned my MOC yet again in 2016.

This version of the glaive further refines the mechanisms of version 3 and adds the soft axle springs of version 1. I also used 7M half-beams instead of 7M full beams.

It measures over 6 inches across when closed and over 12 inches across when opened.

Excuse my ignorance, what is this exactly, some sort of weapon? Does it open instantly, like with a trigger or something or do you have to manualy extend each point?

When I twist each side of the core in opposite directions, all 5 blades open at once. Here's a

that demonstrates how this works with version 3 of this model. Version 4 works the same way.

Thanks, cool mechanism. Was it the same principle in the movie as well?

I'm not sure. I think the movie's glaive had a push-button trigger. But perhaps the inner mechanism of the movie's weapon (at least the parts that reach out to the blades) works very much like mine, except that the core is probably spring-loaded too.
