Just a minor update. I finally finished the head and am moving on to the mid section. Originally i was going to build the mid section in 2 parts, but it looks like I can just pull it off in one piece.

Some pictures of how i did the lights. I glued in the fibers. I noticed that superglue made the fibers brittle so I switched to white glue. I glued a metal cylinder to the led and used cloth tape to bundle the fibers and stick them into the cylinder. This worked out well for piping light into multiple fibers. Plus if the led breaks in the future, switching it out would be easy.

I used the styrene rods for scaffold and styrene sheet for skin method to build the mid section. I lined the interior with milliputt so it is nice and solid.

Wow!
If you have a tool and aren't aware of what it can do, its dangerous. A jedi can do amazing things with a lightsaber. A roomful of chimps with lightsabers... would get messy.

When building something this big, I am fussy about making sure all the angles are set correctly. This wooden contraption was quickly glued together to serve as scaffold for the mid section. I was much happier with the angles on the mid section after using this.
