Could anyone make The Lord of the Rings plugs.
A sword glow, the eye of Sauron, The Balrog ( The big fire dude)?

the eye would be easy to do, and work work quite well...

the sword less easy, and may not work as well - but a good thing to have none the less - i presume u r referring to the glow the sword gives off when orcs are near (don't get me to remember what it's called or anything, i have read the book a bjillion times, and seen the a few times - and can never remember any of their names) smile

Yes sting, but some other elvish blades give off that light.

i thought it would be hard to make due to shape, etc...

maybe if there were a plug-in, for a glow in 3 variations, circle, square, triangle and then u use a few to cover the sword crazy i dunno - just an idea...

no, it would not look right.
have you ever tried lightswords on alam, it will be like that but no core.
a glow around the whole sword is a great idea tmm.
