Eat your heart out, cosplayers!
In the most recent episode of the YouTube series "Controlled Chaos," Caleb Kraft creates his own Z-6 Riot Control Baton, modeled after the Riot Control Stormtrooper in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."
Using PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride), Kraft constructs a functional Control Baton that expands and spins. He doesn't just stop there; he also gives his model a shocking electrical feature with a neon sign transformer. While he doesn't recommend including that (it's dangerous!), he does show how he created the hinges that allow the model's flexibility.
