http://www.discreet.com . Go to their product page and get the free version of GMax. It's a 20 MB download. It's very easy to use if you follow the tutorials that you can download along with it. This was my first model after having it for one day:

Modelling it wasn't very hard. But I'm dying on the Skinmapping.

Hey KingNacho, one thing about your Yoda saber - the 'shield' peice that sticks up on the emmitter isn't connected all the way across, it's actually connected only in the middle. Hard to explain. Something like this:

If that makes any sense :) If it doesn't, I'll do a little sketch of it :)
