    Aug 24, 2007, 2:25 PM - vibroswords anyone? #1

    I know Boba has his shin tool knife, and some customs that people have done have small knives as well. but i was wondering if anyone has done a full sized "vibrosword" like in kotor/EU?

    I'm thinking of doing one myself...someday, when finances allow.

    any input would be appreciated

    For my custom I am making/buying a kit for a vibroaxe. The one that Lando had undercover in Jabba's palace.

    I have a vibroblade currently, and will get a vibrosword later on.

    That reminds me, I'll go post pictures of my vibroblade in the Lutso thread...

    I was thinking a couple days ago how cool it would be to perhaps have a melee weapon,etc. For my Mando, I never thought of a vibroaxe. Thanks alot guys......Now there's something else I want!

    Anyone have some pics of Canon (EU or otherwise) of what a SW vibrosword would look like?

    I would so love to make a Mythosaur axe as seen in TOTJ. That is THE warrior weapon, so authentic and archaic, with no extras such as vibros or such. Now if only there could be the mechanism to retract the blades into the hilt and then !Bang! the blades are out.

    Always a tomorrow for everything. :\

    I have been working on my Vibro sword, but still need to do more work on it, when I get round to it. It's going to be part of my new Mando weapons project. Here is a pic of how it looks at this point.

    Looks good to me. Will the finished sword be one or two-handed?

    i was thinking of doing "blasterfists" by making a thicker version of the stormtrooper hand guard, to install three copper tubes into, like a tri-blaster, then have some wires running from the hand guard to the gaunt (power source)...i'll post pics if i ever get it done

    ...no vibroknuckles for me, but i was toying with the idea of having a Wolverine style gaunt (three claw blades flip out from the gaunt)...

    so many ideas....so little time

    Mine will be both, as i have large hands, but two handed feels better...
