It’s Lightsaber day


 My friends, Barry and Brian from Master Replicas, were on the verge of starting their own replica company called “eFX Collectibles”, and they wanted to create the internals to a very popular Star Wars prop.  This first illustration is a very simplified concept using smoke, mirrors and lenses as the driving force to the mechanics that create the saber’s light blade. Version two is much more heavy in detail and design with a massive crystal magnifier to create the blade.  After all was said and done, Barry worked his magic to scale the operating pieces into an opening saber.  My final illustration rounds off  his fine work.

Following are pictures from Shadow to show the final piece beautifully photographed.  The Lightsabre was presented at Comicon 2008, and the reception was huge.
