The "Official" Master Replicas Prop Thread
« on: March 22, 2003, 04:43 PM »
Well, MR doesn't have a dedicated thread yet, so here we go! :)

And why not start with news of the upcoming Star Wars releases:

Making sure that March is filled to the brim with lots and lots of madness (or seemingly, lots and lots of mad fans), Master Replicas has announced the order dates for the last of their Spring Assortment:

Collector's Society Members:
Replicas will become available for order on March 26 at 9:00 AM EST
General Public:

And the replicas are:

From The Empire Strikes Back:
Darth Vader Signature Edition (LE 500) $499.00
Darth Vader Limited Edition (LE 2500) $349.00

Jedi Training Remote: Shipping Soon
« Reply #1 on: March 25, 2003, 11:52 AM »
I was just checking over my account information at Master Replicas, and the Jedi Training Remote has been billed to my credit card and now has a shippment tracing page set up, it appears that it will be leaving Master Replicas very soon!

I dont know what it is about this, but the JTR has me just as excited as I was when I ordered the first two props. I guess even though I love all the lightsabers, Im very happy for a change of pace.

I for one hope Master Replicas will slow down their lightsaber releases (they are going to go through all of their main sabers VERY quickly if they continue as the same rate) and give some much needed attention to gadgets and other weaponry. I really want a Jawa blaster! :)

They also plan on doing their Star Destroyer and Death Star replicas (3' in size), and these have been all but "officially" confirmed. Im terrified of what price they will run. But to please everyone, they are saying they will offer a smaller line of more affordable vehicle replicas.

Because of companies like Master Replicas, Dark Horse, Kotobukiya and all of the other great Star Wars companies, we are really starting to enter into a new Star Wars Renaissance

Let us know what you think about it once you have received it.  I don't own any replica items but the remote is something I wouldn't mind getting some day.

You can get that case, as well as many other incredibly nice cases at www.casesforcollectibles.com

This one is a 9x9x11 doll case, I may try to get cases for my Riddell Mini Helmets, as well as my Illusive Originals (Concepts) Jabba the Hutt and Rancor Maquettes.

Mace Windu Saber coming! Confirmed!

Just got my new issue of Star Wars Insider, and guess what ad is on the back page! The Mace Windu AOTC saber replica from Master Replicas! No dates listed, but this definately confirms it. This piece looks so freaking cool!

I like Windu's saber.  Of course, at the moment I'm talking about the plastic cheapies but...

Any word on price?  Back to normal I presume?

Cool addition to the line, and obviously a most expected one.  Refresh my memory BDW, but Mace has got a different lightsaber in AOTC, than he had in TPM right?  Just wondering if eventually we'll be seeing the Ep. 1 hilt for him as well as well if that's indeed the case.

So I guess Qui-Gonn's must be next.  That should pretty much complete the set.  Still have enough room left in your case Boba Binks?   ;)  That thing is great by the way!

Just heard from MR, and so far no release date has been set for the Mace Saber.

Snively, the AOTC Mace saber is indeed different from the TPM version. I havent seen pictures of the TPM version in some time, but if memory serves, these two are actually very different, so a TPM saber would be a nice addition as well

So I assume no signature edition, that was recently rumored will be offered also??  I would have liked to have SJ's autograph (but I'll still buy the saber without it).
Man, I wish I would have gotten my Insider today, I'd like to see the photo.  Heck, I'm still waiting for my gold member prop....I wish this little black cloud would quit following me around!! ;)

I do not have to buy this saber. I already have one from SaberArt. :)

The only differenc is that my saber is cad and not the polished brass. I could of bought brass but I opted for the cheaper saber. Anyways, I am glad that MR is doing Mace. Lots of people will be happy.

Now if someone would do a decent E2 Anakin saber.
