It is an amazing looking saber, no doubt about it!  I wonder what the next LE to be retired will be?

Yes, does anyone know when the rest will be shipped?  I know that MR ships the first 300 right away, but the next wave should be out shortly, I would think.

It seems appropriate that for my 100th post (Woo-Hoo!  Finally a blue saber!!) that I add a comment to the Master Replica thread.  Here is some infomration on the Luke Skywalker EE lightsaber from MR representative Amy:

I have some info on the Luke Elite! You will be getting an email about it by the end of the month, more than likely within the next week or two. There will only be 750 of these made and we expect that they will sell out within a matter of hours. There will be a couple of days in between the time you get the email and the time you get to order. This product will probably be shipping almost immediately upon order, at least for the first 300 low numbers. The other 450 will be shipping very shortly after.  The price is $525.00 with free shipping.

Very expensive, but what a piece this would be!  A bit rich for me, with the Yoda and Anakin ROTS sabers coming my way, but I can dream.   ;)

Well, there goes a half day off!!  I hope their system will be ready for the heavy hits whatever morning they decide to put it up.  I also hope my 2005 membership isn't screwed up or I will be one very ugly individual that day.

No kidding!  I would recommend calling them whenever you get a chance, to make sure they have you registered properly.  Supposedly, they are getting everyone who registered for 2005 squared away in their system.  I sure hope so!

Hey jadesfire, what is your avatar picture?  I have always wondered.   :)

Has anyone opted in for the helmets from MR? 

Any ideas on the original price of the shock trooper helmet?  I see they're doing a basic clone helmet that's marginally affordable, I might have to pick that up.

The Shock Trooper and Special Ops Trooper were each $50 more than the standard white clone, and both have presold out.

Thanks Adam.  I perused the page over at RS.  I passed on these because somehow I convinced my brain they were in the same price range as the Vader is supposed to be - at or above $1000.  Much as I'd like to have that, it's out of my price range.  These helmets are sort of out of there too, but I like both better than the white version. 

So MSRP would have been ~$400 each. 

Anyone have a preference of one over the other?  I'm leaning towards blue. :P

Tough call, the Special Ops (blue) will fetch a lot more on the secondary market: It's tremendously popular because of the clever nod these troopers got in the ROTS Visual Dictionary: they were referred to as the 501st by the author of the book. Naturally, they sold out insanely quick.

I prefer the Shock Trooper myself!

Hey everyone,

Does anyone happen to have any additional information as to when the Sidious LE will be shipping besides "June"?  The reason I ask is that I am beginning to see the LE's pop up on Ebay, not simply pre-orders, but the actual saber.  By the way, I received my Obi Ep III today #737. What a beautiful piece.  Thanks for the advice everyone!
