View Full Version : Plo Koon saber hilt finished!!

06-28-2002, 08:06 AM
Forgive me if it looks bad, but this is only my second saber hilt.

Here's a render of it (forgive the skin quality):


And here's a shot of the in-game model:


Now get that Plo Koon model finished!!!

Good Job! And guys.. dont say its bad unless you can/are willing to do better. Personally I like it ;)

06-28-2002, 08:14 AM
Is it supposed to have such a large diameter? :)

06-28-2002, 08:15 AM
Bah, that's because Morgan's a puny wimp. Plo, on the other hand, has bigger hands :P

If you honestly think it's a lil too big I can shrink the size down before I release it. Let me know (and fast so I can release it for you :P)

im sry to say but that looks more like an Anakin Saber or Yoda hilt than Plo Koon Saber hilt:( Ive seen plo koons saber, here is a sit that is not in english but has english translation in it, they have Plo Koons saber, just scroll down: http://www.starwars.idv.tw/replica/lightsaber.htm
it is the 15th saber down and it looks like 1 of the suspected 2 that Mace Windu had in EP1, just press cancel if some download thing comes up u dont need to get it!

I think that would be best ya :) :jawa

06-28-2002, 08:18 AM
this would be Plo's saber as seen with his action figure. I'll size it down, and if you want I'll do his EP II saber as well.

06-28-2002, 08:20 AM
ok I see what you mean. this IS his episode II saber that I'm looking at. I'll model a new one :P

Big hilt, too big, resize it. And the textures are far too plain, add some shading or something to make it look a bit more metal.

06-28-2002, 09:13 AM
resized hilt:


Of course, I don't know how to use shaders or I would have done that. Of course the skins are going to be plain this is my first time skinning ^_^.

If you would tell me how to make shaders I would be glad to give it a shot.

06-28-2002, 09:15 AM
that the hilt is too far up on his hand...I'm trying to make that lower. Should the hilt be smaller?

yes, the hilt should be smaller:)

06-28-2002, 11:23 AM
I mean shade the textures, if you want i can take a crack at it. Send to my email (Amares626@earthlink.net)

06-28-2002, 11:43 AM
OK. Someone wanna take a crack at this one? :D


Try skinning and shading that one (took me an hour of looking at that photo to do)!

cool model Chrono(& my apoligies for my posts in thread Help God Damn it i have fixed the poststs & im sorry for inconvience)

06-29-2002, 12:31 AM
the one from the action fig. is Plo Koons saber from Ep.1, the AOTC saber is the one that looks kinda like mauls
scroll down to Plo Koon

06-29-2002, 03:19 AM
The saber needs to be sized down quite a bit. I mean, sure he has big hands and everything, but Plo Koon didn't make his saber any bigger because of it. If you look at pics and at the action figures, you'll see that his saber is just big enough to fit in one hand, which leads us to believe he didn't use two hands to grip his saber.

And, for the record, Plo's saber color was gold, not orange :P

green.....read what i said....

i SAID...i know in bios and stuff like that it says his saber color is yellow/gold...but it should be orange =OP

06-29-2002, 04:24 AM
so would you say his saber is about the size of Vader's?

06-29-2002, 05:28 AM
you only said yellow in your original post, the gold color his saber is like a mix between yellow and orange... plus I added the :P to mean I was just messing around :)

Anyway, yes, thats what I'm saying, Plo Koon's saber is no bigger then a regular Jedis

green i know u were playing...but im quoting myself =OP

"it does seem a lil fat...also...his saber color is orange!!!!!...yes in bio's it says yellow...but i mean come on!!!..hes an orange alien!!...need oragne! =OD"

see =OP...lol...

and yes...it is the size of a regular lightsaber...if u look at pics of him fighting with his lightsaber...u can see his fingers kinda overlap...looking a lil awkward...so its the size of a regular lightsaber

even though it looks awkward..he doesn't suck..hes a master saberist =O)

To tell you the truth guys Ilike his EP2 saber better!

06-29-2002, 12:46 PM
ummm.... yeah.... wouldnt call it the best. but i wouldnt call it the worst. looks ALOT like anakins saber... is that just a trend for that time or what?

06-29-2002, 12:51 PM
Anakin's saber is based heavily off of Plo's saber from Episode One, which is what that one is. I have no plans of publicly releasing it but anyone that wants a copy I will gladly send it to someone who can host it.
