Darth maul (more of a custom Hilt)

Post by eclipsegrafx on Fri Dec 03, 2010 5:11 pm

Another take at darth maul's hilt. I have heard my original take:


Was too long, but fail to realize the design behind it was for functional purpose. The original design allowed for multiple ways of holding the hilt and allowed for 2 hands the grip at the same time. But to satisfy the masses I created this version:



It is about half a stud too short to be double gripped but it is pretty close to Mauls double hilt.

I then took it a step further to create:


It is a bit sloppy, I apologize, but I think I finished this one at 4am this morning and rushed it. The real one, if anyone asks for it, would have cleaner buttons.

I personally favor the none button one.

Either will be available in my shop at : Eclipsegrafx on Bricklink.

Much better, but it should be light grey.

You got permission for advertising?

I like the hilt, very realistic to the one in the movie. But to make it more movie accurate, you should make in silver; seeing that's how it was in the movie.

But its still a nice hilt. Thumbs up

That a very nice blade, perfect. I agree, the one without buttons is more preferable in my opinion. Mm... New York... Razz

The buttons are kind of unproportioned IMO. So without buttons. But if they were in proportion with the figure a bit more, than with the buttons. Wink

The proportion doesn't really bother me. But I have been talking to someone about an idea for a smaller button but it wouldn't be too noticeable.
