well, they are finished!
As you might notice or remember my boast, I said I would commit the ultimate irony and turn a Mcdonalds toy depicting a spinning top with a jedi lightsaber launcher. The "dial" on the back of the gauntlet? That's the spinning top!
And on the side of this gauntlet, you can see I've taken the dikut Jedi's lightsaber and turned it into a platform for a grapnel launcher! The alpha-numeric pad is keys from my defunct laptop painted tan with hand-painted aurebesh characters and then distressed to appear as though they've had alot of wear.
I'm going to be using broadhead arrow heads for the actual grapnel hooks, mounting them into the front of the "lightsaber". DO NOT WORRY I know the arrow heads are essentially razors!!! I will be grinding them down and taking off their points. I am doing this because I simply lack the precision to attain a suitable design for the grapnels and the way I optimally want them to appear.
Needless to say, I am ecstatic with how these look, and I'm really proud of my work. Thanks Eternal Armoury for an awesome product!!
