Desert Bus 8 – Master Sword Giveaway

We are very proud to be Community Sponsors of DesertBus.org as they entertain thousands through their live stream over the next week, while raising money for charity!

We have donated a very unique prize as part of their live stream give-away offerings: Dark Link’s Sword

Dark Link Sword 2  Dark Link Sword 1

From the site:

While Link’s Master Sword is “The Blade of Evil’s Bane” – a weapon forged by the goddesses of Hyrule and wielded by the Hero of Time – Dark Link’s Sword is a brutal, gnarled reflection of the Master Sword’s brilliance. We are offering one custom made, one of a kind stainless steel replica of Dark Link’s Sword.

Being 42″ long and 5 lbs heavy – it is a truly terrifying blade, lovingly christened “The Blade of Evil’s Reign.”

This specific model is more detailed and brutal than any other replica we’ve made in the past, and will be available on Wednesday, November 19th. Bid the specified amount (or a multiple for that many entries) to be entered to receive this unique replica!

But that’s not all!!

For anyone that donates any amount to Child’s Play Charity through DesertBus.org from Nov 14th until the drive ends, you can take advantage of a $100 discount on your own Master Sword replica! This includes any color and style: Blue, Purple, Dark – Skyward Sword or Twilight Princess.

This special replica run will start early 2015, and supplies will be limited. Please e-mail desertbus2014@heroicreplicas.com for more details!

This project has been quite the challenge, but I’ve completed a commission for an Infinity Gauntlet replica – custom fit to size, with leather, steel, lights and a battery pack. Step-by-step to follow.

Year One – Retrospective

One year ago, I posted by first finished Master Sword to Reddit to a great reception. The feedback I received from that thread drove me to improve and give myself more resources. I’ve put together a retrospective, which gained a significant amount of traction through Imgur.

3D Printer up and running

My Solidoodle 3 arrived a week ago, and I’ve been having some fun.

The first hour:

 

There have been successes: (The first 48 hours)

 

And some failures: (PSA: Make a filament guide)

 

Once I wrap up some current projects, I hope to compose a very detailed post about the pros, cons, and what to expect from this 3D printer.

A Warrior’s Weapon

For the Bat’leth, I started with a few difference references to get the scale and shape correct.

The first draft looked like this:

I showed it off to a fan form for them to tear it apart. They exceeded my expectations, and directed me to an episode of Deep Space 9:

DAX: Computer. I want a Klingon bat’leth, tip to tip one hundred and sixteen centimetres, weight five point three kilos with an exterior handgripping diameter of five centimetres. Blades composite baakonite.

KOLOTH: Ah, a warrior’s configuration. Now what are you going to do with it?

I went back the sketch, increased the size and thickness, and changed the shape to get the weight spot on.

Batleth - Sept 16

Then I cut it on the CNC plasma cutter:

 

Here’s the product so far:

Next up, I’ll want to invent a grinder attachment to make these long edges much safer to grind.

Estimated project completion: November 2013
