    Seeing how a few people have made swords for there movie primes, i decided to give it a shot and see what i could come up with.. I drew the sword out on paper and then used some clear plastic to scratch the design into. Then using some cutters i cut it out .. I cracked it in half so ill have to glue it lol . To attach it to primes hand i used some parts from a old Medabot .. Its just held together with tape for now till i get some glue and that paint made for clear plastics so i can try and keep it translucent... anyways here it is , tell me what you think :)

    I'd agree on both counts here. Nice work and with the attachment, it would seem like you'd have the room to have it light up.

    Check out the local dollar stores. They always have small light-up toys or buttons or such.

    well i was going to paint it with that translucent paint for clear plastics, so i could use a small clear colors light.. its going to be tuff though because i have the blade part screwed inthe the one side of the hand cover, so i would have to find a very small light that i could put on one side and then on the other side put put the battery power supply..
    Im going to make a new blade , this one ceacked in half so i doubt it will light up as good , so ill just cut out a new one .. Ill post pice os everything when i do .
    Thanks for the input guy s :)

    Man, you've got to stick a light in there! It's pretty much a perfect setup for it.

    i tried to put in a LED light .. it dont light you correctly if the light is on the side of the blade.. Imust be at the end of the blade aiming towards the tip of the sword so that the light travels through the length of the plastic.. So if i put the LED there it will no longer fit onto primes hand.
    But im still working on it so ill see what i come up with ...

    LOL yeah he no long lives lol , i used his legs to make custom WST prime trailers so the gun tower could raise up and no some of his armor to make the blade base lol .. Ok so i added the light to this to show you how it lights up with this so far.. Im going to look for smaller light cause right now this will not fit ont prime .. I painted the inside flat black so it would not light the orange plastic up so much too.. So here is a quick first fit
    and here is what happened to medabees legs LOL LOL

    lighted the sword a bit different , i just swaped the pics in the post above .. I think once this gets some paint on it , it will light more better ... I need to see about some micro LEDs i think and maybe a external power pack that cant attach to the back of prime out of sight or something ... Any other ideas are welcome :)  ..

    Oh i also made a 3rd sword out of some plastic from a clead dvd case .. i thought since it was not clear and had the foggy finish to it that it would light up better , but it doesnt lol so im going to switch it back to the clear plastic..
