Darth Maul’s Battle Damaged Lightsaber

Posted in The Clone Wars, Vintage Collection on September 23, 2012 by botwt

I got the new Darth Maul Returns Battle Pack from Target today and I wanted Maul to be wielding his battle damaged lightsaber like they depicted in The Clone Wars last season…so I grabbed some pictures off Google and went to town on my spare VC86 Darth Maul lightsaber.

I started by trying to cut the hilt at a slight angle as it shows in the photos above, taped up the red blade and primed the hilt black. Used Games Workshop paints to repaint it in a dulled steel color scheme and finished it off by adding the red nut screws and some scoring on the bottom of the hilt where it was cut but Kenobi’s lightsaber.

Yakfinities # 45 – Imperial Troopers ~ 501st Legion Imperial ARC Lieutenant

For the Yakfinities # 45 – Imperial Troopers contest I decided to build a simple 501st Legion Imperial ARC Lieutenant. It was comprised of the 2012 CW2 Phase II Clone Trooper head, the Saga Collection Commander Appo’s pauldron and the 2010 CW ARC Troopers Battle Pack blue ARC Trooper’s body. No painting or converting was done to the figure…just some simple parts swapped to create a different looking figure.
