Master Replica Stormtrooper Blaster
« Reply #62 on: November 15, 2004, 08:34 PM »
Oh, this is one sweet prop!!  It's pretty hefty (I haven't weighed it but I guess it's around 25 pounds) and the detail is outstanding.  I wasn't too thrilled about the target in the scope at first but now I like it.  Click on the blaster album in the bottom right of the link:

Alas, I'll never be able to get this because MR can't ship replica weapons to Canada.  It's a real shame, because it looks like a beauty.   You must be pretty proud of that piece of art, especially with that dazzling mirror base!

Master Replica Elite Edition - Luke's ROTJ saber
« Reply #65 on: November 16, 2004, 05:02 PM »
This item arrived today and in true MR fashion, was another masterpiece.  I really like the shine to this along with the green crystal in the emitter.  The only down side was I ended up with an error saber.  Usually they don't put the edition number on the saber but for this series they did and mine (along with a few others) had xxx/75 instead of xxx/750.

No one will ever really notice but I'll know...and that kind of sucks.  Anyways, I've got pic's up again.  Just go the "saber" album and scroll to the bottom.  I also have two shots of the "old" saber from when Master Replica first started along side this one.  I was going to just keep one but they are unique enough to keep both.

Nice collection display you got there. I agree, the Stormie blaster is an excellent piece, and I'm happy I was one of the fortunate few who received this piece in November and in perfect condition.

I posted a pic of my Stormtrooper Blaster here.

My blaster finally arrived about a week ago; but it was absolutely well worth the wait, it's a fantastic piece. This has been like Christmas all over again! :) I got my Stormie blaster, Snowspeeder and my Obi Wan Kenobi AFBB saber should arrive any day now.  Hopefully some of my Gentle Giant swag will ship soon...

Question: Are all of the 501st Stormtrooper costume guys trying to buy these to go with their outfits?  Or are they generally content with what they've already got for their blasters?  If the former, then this has got to be a tough one due to the added demand from that whole other subset of people who might not normally be collecting the MR line...

Not that I collect them myself, but I was just curious.  Granted, I'd love to get into them at some point, but I'll just have to wait 'til Adam's ready to sell his collection off to me.   ;)

P.S.  Welcome to JD Mini-Rock!

I think some 501st members picked them up, but the blasters are two heavy to troop with (they'll pull off holsters easily). MR was toying with the idea of a "501st Edition" made of lighter materials. As of right now that's on an indefinite hold. They're releasing an Empire Strikes Back version later this year, so that will give MR another opportunity to consider the 501st Edition.

Mini Rock, are those IKEA Billy shelves you have your pieces displayed on? (the shelves with the corner unit)

Well, we do have dedicated threads already going for the:

Mini-sabers

and

FX lightsabers

So I think we should keep rolling along with those two at least (especially since I just bumped 'em  ;)).  Good to separate out some of MR's sublines a little.  But I agree it's a good idea to maybe get an official Props one going here.  I've actually thought about merging all the older MR prop threads together and making that the official one, but haven't gotten around to it yet, so I guess this will do for now...  Personally, I wouldn't mind a separate Vehicles (Studio Scale) thread as well, maybe, since those are pretty unique in and of themselves...  Whatchya think, Adam?

Imperial AT-AT, second edition?!  WTF's up with that?  What's the difference?  Or did they just sell out and thus decided to make some more (likely pissing off everyone that bought the first one?

Nobody knows for sure what the 2nd Edition ATAT will entail, except that it will be "noticeably different". Hopefully the crashed one...

If you're into minis, you're in for a treat from the looks of it! :)
