Any Star Wars fan will surely remembers and recognises the iconic weapon of a Jedi Knight, the coloured laser bladed sword of awesomeness. It’s no secret that every one of them would want a weapon of such calibre in their own collection of ever-growing Star Wars merch, may it be just prop hilt or real toys.
While there exists official lightsabre toys from the official license holders, such merchs are in the end just mass-produced collector’s items of varying quality, usually below par. Luckily for the past decade or so, fan made custom lightsabres are things of beauty, going through evolution by evolution of upgrades that surpassed the likes of their official counterparts.
Various designs were created, sounds and light gimmicks perfected, which are practically indistinguishable from the movie magic nowadays. They were utilised in many forms, from conventions wielded by cosplayers, to even as an actual fencing swords in Jedi inspired combat training camps…
After coming back from the screening of Episode VII: The Force Awakens about a year and a half back, eager to get my hands on a lightsabre, I’ve gotten myself an Anakin-to-Vader Ultimate FX Lightsabre from Hasbro, only to be utterly disappointed by its plastic build and less than desirable brightness of the blade, not to mention one of its core function (Changing from blue to red blade at will while ignited) is defective.
Fast forward a year later after the viewing of Rogue One, once again my wish to acquire a lightsabre of my own resurfaced, this time I’m in for a treat as I’ve managed to find one on Taobao that is actually affordable, unlike the premium prices on various custom lightsabre makers (Such as Ultrasabers and SaberForge) out there…
Love is in the air
Everywhere I look around
Love is in the air
Every sight and every sound
And I don’t know if I’m being foolish
Don’t know if I’m being wise
But it’s something that I must believe in
And it’s there when I look in your eyes
The Monkey stopped going apes at the end of this season, making way for the Rooster to cock a doodle doo!
Please bear with me and excuse my animal puns… :P
The guilt of neglecting Ranka-chan for a long time now has finally caught up to me, so I guess I should let her come out of the closet and be the kanban musume this year in the celebration of this prosperous Lunar New Year. =w=
Tama-chan can just stay back, relax and enjoy the festive season this time…
It has been already a full week since the start of a new year…
Once again a very happy new year to you all!
As mentioned before, I have another doujin Tama-chan dakimakura cover from Taobao arriving at my doorstep.
Upon checking on her, I’m surprised to find an omake alongside her… I’ll elaborate further down the post… :3c
My ever-growing harem of bed companions (Which include: a nekkid angel, a couple of rori basketballers, a spicy wolf, a King Kong, an older version of Tama-chan herself as well as a doujin Tama-chan…) received another member at the beginning of the last moon of the year, however due to a series of unfortunate events, I had to postpone her introduction to the masses until now…
Truly, 2016 has not been kind to me, and many others… Especially when I learned of General Organa became one with the Force when I woke up this morning… orz
