There are lots of images out there.

Try looking at pics of this saber that people have already made.

Ok, I've already made my interpretation of this saber. As soon as there are many subtle variants in the details, I've added some of mine, which I thought do look nice on it. Besides as you may see I've changed the red crystal to a green one as soon as this will be used for my Marek's ceremonial jedi outfit.

Well fellows, here's te vector image for guide me thru the process, what do you think???...

Glad I was helpful, Eric.

But your version, with the grip area that wide doesn't look quite right, to me.

Also I would recomend a blue saber. The green color you can unlock yes but in all cinema scenes he uses a blue crystal

Oh great, I was just gonna ask just that about the crystal color, but ok, I'll do the change then.

As soon as some of the shapes has somehow a visual relation with the ep IV Luke's saber, then I've been checking some proportions with my MR piece, so I would be able to emulate it.

I might begin the work till next week, but as soon as I have advances I'll post them to you here!!!

Thank you all guys... Wink

Over at the Flagship Eclipse, we have an extended conversation about the never-ending story of Starkiller. There you'll find many good reference pictures of his dark side costumes (since the FE is an 501st Detachment) but also his lightsaber.

Beside, here are some shots:




Also, I have to ask: Do you want to do Starkiller's lightsaber during his time as a Sith Apprentice or during his way to the Light Side? That's important because after his "reconstruction" onboard the Empirical he wields Rahm Kota's old lightsaber. The novel confirms this.

Well I'm planning to do the "lightside" one, and as far as I know this saber was pretty much the same design as the darkside, only changing the color of the crystal, which by the way it's gonna be blue then. Here's the new diagram with the corrections you all suggested me...

I think when he is a Sith he had the saber which Daritha has posted with a red blade. When he became a jedi he had the saber of Rahm Kota. First this saber had the green Crystal from Kota, but later he added the a aqua crystal which he found on Kashyyyk. Then the saber had a teal blade colour. I hope this helps (sorry for my English; I'm 14 and from Germany)

According to the novel, Starkiller's lightsaber was destroyed when Vader beatrayed him. When he awaked onboard the Empirical, Vader gave him Rahm Kota's lightsaber. The Star Wars Encyclopedia affirms this.

But I think, you have the same lightsaber all the way in the game, right? I never looked cloesely to the hilt of the saber but its logical that they useing the same hilt during the whole game. However, the novel and the Encyclopedia stand that Starkiller lost his first lightsaber and get Kota's instead from Vader. When he had his vision of his father on Kashyyyk, Starkiller retrieved a blue lightsaber crystal and replaced the green one of Kota in the lightsaber.
This is the canonical version. But I think its also okay if you use the "bad" lightsaber since the lightsabers hilts are of minor canonicity for us (at least if its not Obi-Wan's lightsaber). ^^

EDIT
It's like Bardan said. He need a less amount of words than me. And your English is good enough Bardan. Smile

Thank you very much Bardan, and don't worry about your english, I'm from Mexico and I also struggle with the thing of the language, so that doesn't matter at all, the enthusiasm is more important in a rebel Wink

Well I think the same way as you, besides I really like this Marek's design. on the other hand the Kota's saber is his, I mean, it's not the actual Marek's saber, is just an heritage isn't it???
