Thread: How can I replace this part?

    How can I replace this part?

    Sorry, I didn't know what forums to put this post in....I figured all the creative peeps hang out here.

    So I have this 12inch Anakin to Vader figure that I love....but the clear lightsaber that turns blue to red went missing recently. What type of item can I buy to replace it? It basically needs to be clear and lightsaber-ish length/width. I was thinking something at a craft store, or Home Depot would carry something like this, unless any people who have replaced something like this before can steer me in another direction.



    and here's a saber from a different 12inch figure, it would basically need to be exactly this size, but clear so the LED could shine through it:

    How about a clear coffee stirrer type thingy? Probably would have to cut it down a bit to fit appropriately, but should do the trick.

    Or maybe even better, do a search for "acrylic rod." You can probably find the needed diameter with a little google search.

    Yes, that's perfect. Thank you so much.

    Go to Youtube and look up Cosplay Chris. He has a video where he customizes a large Jakks Pacific Vader and makes a great looking saber blade. I can't recall what he used, but came out looking very nice.
