Loki's Chitauri Scepter from The Avengers (2012)
This a replica of the short staff Loki used to mind control Hawkeye and several others, and escape from the S.H.I.E.L.D. compound. This item is approximately 96 cm long (36 in).
Notice: This device will not grant you the ability to fire energy blasts or take over the minds of your enemies. Such upgrades are welcome as derivatives.
Notice 2: This thing is undergoing a redesign. Faults were found during construction and after some use.
I printed the staff with ABS, 2 shells, 0.2 layer height, and 10% infill. Some pieces do require support. Included is the staff sliced to fit a Makerbot Replicator in .stl files (may not be oriented for minimal support). If you need to slice it differently, I've also included the .skp file with the original designs in it. All names referenced below should match the .stl file names.
Note: Pieces have small holes for short segments of ~1.7mm filament. These are used for test fitting and alignment for gluing.
If you do not own a 3d printer, the design files should allow you to make your own scepter out of wood or other carvable material. Much of the process after cutting out the segments will be the same.
