Hello Everybody and welcome to my second post of this weekend. As I mentioned in my ?Khaarnage? a saber for Alex Khaar ? Inspired by Lady Revan?s FanFiction post earlier, I am a member of a custom lightsaber forum run by Ultrasabers (a custom saber manufacturer) and I have recently been invited to post my designs on that forum too. Well, the reaction to my designs has been nothing short of phenomenal and even if there was a criticism it was always put forward with the intention to help me improve. I posted my Speeder Lightsaber design and a member commented “That hilt and flat blade would look like something out of TRON if it had all the glowing edges”. Another member “hinted” they too would like to see a TRON themed hilt, then another so I guessed it was a challenge. I took on that challenge and went to…

Helloooooo Everybodies!!!!!!!!It is getting near to that time of the year where the Ghouls and Ghosts, Spectres and Spooks all come out to play. And to help protect you all I have joined forces with fellow blogger and friend The Vintage Toy Advertiser to bring you some Ghostbusters themed adverts and a new Ghostbusters themed hilt!

As you may know back in New York of 1984, the city suffered from a wave of supernatural shenanigans and it fell to three Parapsychologists to save the day. Their names were Peter Venkman, Raymond Stantz, Egon Spengler (and later) Winston Zeddemore otherwise known as the Ghostbusters. They were college professors and scientists who built some cutting edge equipment to catch and contain the ghosties. Unfortunately they weren’t politicians and fell foul of a devious city official. As a result they get arrested for operating without a license, just as a big paranormal event occurs and a large…

Hello Everybody and in particular to two friends of this site, namely The Vintage Toy Advertiser (TVTA) and his pet office cat WOOOF! In one of TVTA’s recent comments he mentioned classic TV shows and that he had searched FTSabersite for a design dedicated to, or a mention of a very special show. That show was Knight Rider starring David Hasselhoff as a man on a crusade to fight crime using the aid of an indestructible supercar. Hasselhoff played the part of Michael Arthur Long, a cop who was working an undercover case. He was shot in the head and left for dead by the female criminal he was investigating. Lying in the desert Michael Long was fortunately discovered by a passer-by who took him to get medical aid, and saved his life. The man who found Michael was Wilton Knight, a reclusive millionaire who provided the hospital and treatment Michael needed to…
