Iron Man Lightsaber: The Arc Reactor is Strong With This One
June 27th, 2013
The Custom Saber Shop forum member Eastern57 made a lightsaber that would be at home in Patton Oswalt’s Star Wars universe. It’s a lightsaber decked in Shellhead’s winning crimson and gold colors. But Eastern57 didn’t stop with the paint job. He also incorporated another Iron Man trademark: the arc reactor.
In one of his YouTube videos, Eastern57 said that the lightsaber is based on a toy replica of Galen Marek aka Starkiller’s lightsaber. The arc reactor is mounted in an inner chamber that is revealed by twisting the hilt’s upper half.
The lightsaber also plays back sound bites from the Iron Man movies, as well as some of the songs from its soundtrack.
A lightsaber that plays AC/DC? This ain’t your daddy’s saber. Oh wait. It is your daddy’s lightsaber. Check out Eastern57’s thread on The Custom Saber Shop or his Photobucket gallery for more images of the lightsaber.
