Title: Cool Kids Stick Club - Show Off Your Non-Blaster Weapons
Post by: Arch on Dec 14, 2015, 09:28 PM
If you've made a non-blaster weapon recently as well, post it here!

In wake of the moratorium on blasters, I decided to make myself a stick. I consider it an electrostaff of some kind.

Dis mah zap stick. I named it after Solus. But don't tell him.

I made it because I have a girl-crush on Rey (and her staff) and also because pipe fittings are Swarzy as heck. This was a quick build-- The paint didn't set up quite right and I didn't get a chance to bring it to the level of finish I would have liked thanks to the oncoming Maine winter.

It won't be a mainstay with my kit, but it's a fun prop to have when I can't have a blaster. What I particularly like about it is that it lets me interact with kids who have lightsaber toys when they inevitably come over to hit me with them.

While they're not finished just yet  I made a pair of electro-batons, that can be connected to make a short electrostaff. :D

Going to cover the slots with acrylic that im going to sand up so its opaque to better disperse the light, and of course add some grip to it, but the general concept is done.

Very nice. I've been thinking of making a stun baton myself. Do you have a build thread for this?

I started off by following this tutorial (http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=103053.0) that Ru'Der Marekar did, and just decided to make it two pieces instead. Here's my weapons WIP thread (http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=103874.0).

Well, you know its all about how you use your zap stick, not whether its flashy or not. Your prey will make the mistake of underestimating you and your solus-named zapstick :D

Oh, wow! Your zap stick is television famous!

I was a dingus when I made my electrostaff and didn't make it so it could come apart, so it's incredibly cumbersome to move, hahah.

Here's a photo of me and Solus the Zap Stick at the premiere!

THAT is exactly why I made mine into batons instead of just doing a solid staff haha.

What would you recommend using as a material for it though? My first instinct is wood, but that won't work well I think.

I didn't think I could get wood to look close enough to metal for the blade. If I can it'll make my job easier.

Depending on how wide your blade is, a good method is to cover the surface with metal-tape, the kind they use for heat-ducts. I've used it, to wonderful effect, to cover a cardboard "axe" I built for one of the kids in my local children's theater group. While I used several strips and you could see the seams, a narrow blade or pole ought to be able to be covered in one go. Voilŗ, metal.

Had some spare parts left from a gutted Power Rangers sword, so I threw them together into a knife. Not nearly the craftmanship of these other beautiful pieces, but I hate to see useful items go to waste!

Hopefully I can get back to work on my new kit (which will be going back to the drawing board for the umpteenth time), and this thread is giving me a lot of good ideas for non-blaster weapons! I'd like to try something new with this kit, maybe go gunless.. I'm LOVING those stun batons.. may have to go that route.. but add a sharp edge somewhere.. (admittedly, it takes the point out of a baton, ahahaaa...)

I wasnt happy with the slits in the PVC that I had, mostly because they looked kind of ugly and didnt quite disperse the light as well as I wanted it to. I had planned to try putting acrylic tube over that portion, and in the end decided to remove the slotted PVC completely and just use the acrylic tube (which I sanded inside and out to make it opaque) and adjust the LEDs to better light it, and added end caps on the top.

I quickly put this modular staff together for a troop. It was a one day build, and is no where near complete... The button head screws will be replace by set screws, and bondo'd over. And the paint job needs to be completely refinished, right now it's just a single coat of black with dry brush silver. The staff is designed to break down for easy travel, as well as modular so you can make it a vibro axe, or umbrella  :P

First troop with it was a total success.

for my Egyptian style mando (which I just recently decided I'm doing). I have a few questions though: what do you guys normally make your blades out of, and how do I make this this thing swarsy without just tacking on a few wires and calling it a vibro blade?

You could add some greebies to the bottom of the blade before it goes into the curl.
Also you could use EA wire from the top of the curv to the bottom on the inside making it look like it's got an electro current going through it, bit like the string used on the Nightsisters bow.

my bent grip sword for fighting against light sabers using makashi. Figured if I "found" a training manual for makashi on a dead jedi, I might decide to train in it. It was meant more for one on one fighting/Dueling. Add in a mando iron blade I can deflect sabers.

Oh it's beautiful isnt it? It's a trick i picked up from Adam savage. It's aluminium tape, you lay it on smooth, get rid of the air bubbles, scrub the balls off it with scotch brite, paint all of it with flat black, scrub it and repaint as needed for the effect you want

Word of warning!!!!!

When pulling the backing of the tape do NOT, i repeat, DO NOT just pull it off, it'll sproing back up, adhere to itself and then it's garbage.
Leave backing at the bottom, hold the tape and then remove the backing

UPDATE: After about a year of service, my zappy stick has been felled. We were at the Rogue One premier. It couldn't handle the intense baton stylings of one of my fellow Wampas.

RIP stick. You were a good stick. I'm finally getting around to gathering components for a new one.

I don't have a spear, but I sometimes use an electrostaff. I have knee issues that pop up during bad weather, and also have an ankle that was crushed, but not broken.

Knee replacement on left knee.... Right knee is arthritic, both ankles have weak tendons and really like to dislocate at the wrong moment.  So yeah, I definitely feel for you on this one.  I think the electrostaff would be better for me.  Possibly some track tape... or some other non slip type stuff.. on one of the end caps so it doesn't go sliding out from underneath when I need to hang on.

My brother, is this, specifically, an "Electro-Whip" or just a "Whip"? My character is one of the two or three, that I know in this club, that does not have a pike, a sword, or something else. I think there is another female mando that has whips. Considering, on paper, my mando is like 8 feet tall because she's a "LEGENDS" Togorian and her whips are modded beyond the outer rim, to be so hot, they can actually slice through most solid matters or, with long exposure, they can break through a layer or two of armor or metals.



Or two.

Sure an assassin could have a whip.  It's effective (if you're good with it) for controlling an enemy's body, and can be used as a garotte in a pinch.  It's also a 'silent' weapon if you don't crack it.

Just a heads up on the tent stake knife -- it needs to be so dull it looks ROUND if it's made out of metal...  plastic, dull the tip and edges.  That's a legitimate weapon in the photo.

Most melee weapons are blunted, wooden, or made from Sintra or other thermoplastics.

It depends on a number of factors, in the UK we are normally trooping as invited costumers and have different guidelines to the public who are restricted too materials and the length of weapon (even for melee weapons) but as Straka says

This one is my baby.
It activates with a trigger switch in the grip.
There is also a flicker circuit in it so it constantly changes intensity.
