From an FX Saber fan's perspective, it sorta sucks... However I have a feeling someone else will pick up the ability to make these, at the very least, if not all the other stuff MR made that nobody was really buying much.
I really hope you are right and someone else is going to pick these up... I also wonder if they are going to halt production all together or if they are going to continue with the FX sabers that were still slated for this year (Obi-Wan EPII, Build-Your-Own FX Saber)? I was really looking forward to the Obi-Wan later this year, and like everyone else, hoping they were going to make the Qui-Gon, Sidious, and Dooku sabers at some point.
