I am praying that the TPM Kenobi FX saber gets made.

I have been praying for the same thing, but this late in the year, I doubt that they would go through the trouble...

There is suppose to be one red... one green (yoda) and one more... but I don't think they had that one in mind.  :'(

The EP1/EP2 Obi-Wan was on their 30th Anniversary product listing either late last year or early this year along with a Jedi Jow build your own force FX lightsaber.  I honestly would be shocked if we see either one of them...

Should be fun today about 12 PM EST.  I wonder if that third server will make a big difference.

Still crashed three times as I tried to check out...but I got one.

The Obi TPM FX prototype was at the MR party at CIV. So the chances of this being made are actually pretty good. The Dooku on the other hand..????????

MR has been given permission to make both the Ep. I FX Kenboi and a FX Dooku.  If they can get it finished by years end, then we will get them.  I have seen picks of a Dooku prototype as well as the Kenobi one.

I got my Medal of Yavin today and it wasn't packaged exactly as I was expecting.  I guess I didn't realize it would be packaged like the POTC coin so I was a little disappointed.  It sure is small - but I think it will work good once I can track down a 15" stuffed Chewbacca.  I can't seem to find a pair of scissor right now to cut it open but once I do, I'll post more pictures later.

Needless to say, I saw this on display at the Master Replicas Party and when I got back I cancelled my order. While it is cheap in monetary value, it also comes off cheap in it's display value to me. The packaging is everything, and I think they dropped the ball.

Received notice of shipping on my Wedge scaled helmet.  Here's hoping it looks nice as an addition to the Riddell set.  Sure wishing they'd have managed to get the Tie Pilot helmet out as well :-\

I cannot think of a reason why any MR collectible should be left in the packaging.

Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

I don't disagree.... however.... the lack of a display box or stand make it a little lackluster....That is all I am saying.

My package arrived yesterday, but I've been so busy the past few days with a hectic holiday week at work. Looking at the pictures I almost regret getting the scaled Medal and feel I should've probably pre-ordered the scaled Wedge helmet instead. It's nothing against MR as I love their products, but this one has me feeling underwhelmed. I definately want to display it someway (minus the packaging like I do with the scaled sabers/blasters).

Just a heads up, Master Replicas is running their Scavenger Hunt 'Christmas in July' sale today and I've come across the Yoda Force FX lightsaber for $79.99 and the Darth Maul Battle Damaged Force FX lightsaber for $89.99 already.  The add says to check back periodically durinig the day for updates.  Might be worth it for people who have been waiting to buy some MR items...
