Unfortunately no, since I have already paid for one.

I received an email from MR stating that they changed the material for Qui-Gon's CE saber:

Meanwhile, in other Star Wars news, Master Replicas would like to officially announce that a major  change has been made to the upcoming Qui-Gon Jinn Collectors Edition lightsaber. It was previously reported that the CE would feature a cast resin body; however, since that time, Master Replicas’ product development team has re-engineered the piece, and changed the resin to a   more handsome, durable die cast metal. To purchase a Qui-Gon Jinn Collectors Edition lightsaber, please visit any of Master Replicas’ Authorized Retailers.

Interesting....I had my doubts about the resin holding up and was surprised that MR retooled the materials to die cast metal.

That's good news.  Looks like the CE sabers will be made to a higher quality than originally thought.
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

Just got an email from MR stating next Tuesday, Boba Fett's blaster will be up for sale to CS members.  $579.00 for the LE version and $679.00 for the autographed one.  Since I already have Jeremy Bulloch's autograph, I will be passing on the SE version.

Here's part of the email:

For the first time ever, Master Replicas brings you a fully authorized and licensed replica of the legendary bounty hunter’s firearm from Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi.

Crafted with our customary quality and attention to detail, this exacting replica has been recreated from a surviving filming prop in the Lucasfilm archive and features:

Authentic weathered finish
Machined aluminum and brass parts
Diecast metal construction
Injection molded plastic components
Wooden handles
Museum quality display case with mirrored base and acrylic cover
Numbered plaque and Certificate of Authenticity


The did send along a nice photo and I am sure I will probably order it but I do like the sabers better.  They also didn't give any dimensions in the email but I assume the size of the stormtrooper blaster is an appropriate comparison.

Man, ever since I changed my email, I never get the MR newsletters anymore no matter how many times I update my account.  I assume the Boba Fett rifle goes on sale at 9 AM PST?  I have an all day meeting that day, but we get a break for lunch around that time (12 PM EST) so hopefully I'll be able to run to the computer to get the preorder in.  I have all the blasters so far and I've been happy with each one.

I always dreamed of having the Jango Fett blaster set, so having the Boba Fett blaster would be even better.  But I've got my hands full (and wallet empty) with the Sideshow statues.  ;)

You assumed correctly.  Sorry about not posting that part.  FOr the non-member, you'll get the chance to order two days later.

Update on the edition size plaques...received the yoda one a few days ago, however, they sent me two copies of it...I'm wondering if one was supposed to be for the Sidious saber.  Anyone else recieve any besides Yoda in the past week or so?

I received the same message myself about the Qui-Gon saber.  I've been waiting for this one for a while now.  Its been a busy week with SW items.  I received both the newer remote R2/R4 units and the mini Luke and Vader sabers from MR, now the note about the Qui saber...I'm just glad the Y-wing isn't shipping yet.  I'm not sure my wallet could handle it.

If any of you high rollers doesn't have a Leia blaster yet, talesofwonder.com has it for a very nice price of $199.  I've ordered from them in the past and have had nothing but great service.

Got my Sidious plaque the other day (it went to my old address first).  The plaque was already attached to the stand which, IMO, was nice but I'd hate to get one that was not lined up perfectly!!
