Hey guys

Inspired by osi, I made a knex lightsword this week. So I decided to post this. (Although it hurts when you get hit with this sword!!! its not made for real fighting, just so you know :P).

The handle is my favorite part. Its made out of Maxima knex parts. And as for the blade... I just snapped some pieces together lol.

Instructions can be found here:

Part list:
32 yellow connectors
31 yellow rods
4 black rods
4 small grey gears
4 grey connectors
1 small wide wheel

2 orange connectors (in brown)
3 white connectors (in black)
8 red connectors (in grey)
2 yellow connectors (in white)
9 white rods (in black)
3 green rods (in black)
2 yellow rods (in grey)
1 black rubber band (from trekker set I think)
1 red knex man hand

I hope you like it :)

Hah lol this is great! Favourited :D
<p>the one that I made is a variation on one that I read about. yours looks very sturdy I rate it as 110% </p><p>P.S. It also looks very nice</p>
wow better than a real one MUST POST - ,_,-
Im working on it :P
i had trouble with making lightsabers out of k'nex because i couldn't get the blade to be sturdy enough to handle hitting things :P
You gotta be a real Star Wars nerd to spend time to make that. Let's see if I have enough parts for that.......
the handle is REALLY nice!!!!!!
Just saw it... I remember having this conversation what? a year ago... wow nice job and your handle is a lot better than mine :)
I like it, nice job. I was just wondering, how sturdy/strong is it??? like if you smaked it against a wall, would it shatter???<br /> <br /> just wanted to know, very nice, and cool.
&nbsp;It's not for real fighting, I think it would just bend when you hit a wall with it. Or break at the bottom of the handle.
oh, ok. thnx.
Wow... That is cool looking. Great job!
this is sooo cool! please post!
Awesome, most realistic light saber I've ever seen.
what about a real lightsaber?
You know what I mean >.>
Thank you :D
WOW! 5*! Are you going to post it? Cos I want one!
Yeah i might do that :)
This is so cool. 5*
Thanks !
That handle is very good. @ Oblivitus - just use blue rods and blue connectors instead. Same thing for a red one, use red rods and red connectors.
Thanks :) Yeah if you want to make it blue you could use blue connectors and rods instead. I tried to make it with red rods before but it turned out quiet weak. I also made one a white blade. Ill post a picture tomorrow.
I like it, can you make a blue one though?
