'Double telescopic saber' garage find!!!!

Postby subzero » Wed Aug 02, 2017 6:26 pm

I'm so excited, I was in the family garage in the garden this afternoon looking for bits and found this sitting amongst a load of crap and bits & pieces.

It's a red double telescopic saber....... from a fishing float lmao!, I almost had a heart attack when I spotted it, asked my brother what it was and he said it's most likely from a fishing float. Added a second pic showing it next to my genuine Vader saber, I can't believe how much it looks like one, same size, colour and even the thin plastic part in the middle almost has the same flexibility as an original tip. Funny part is it's even telescopic but the outside part is just a rubber tube.

Sorry for the click bait, don't ban me :lol:

Maybe I should join a few groups on that shit hole and mess with some people's minds with my 'genuine' telescopic saber :twisted: :lol:
