Darth Maul lightsaber...

Forget the Master Replicas Darth Maul lightsaber, for just $30,000 more you could get the real thing right here on eBay!  Holy crap, that's a fat chunk of change!

Great to hear that! I ordered the Signature Edition, so I dont think mine will ship for a few more weeks...

Im really hoping MR will listen to the demand and make a case for this, as well as the Jedi Training Remote.

Ok here is my review of the Darth Maul saber from Master Replica.

Contents: X1 Maul Saber
X1 Display Stand *No Case*
X1 Plaque Holder
X1 COA, MR stuff, ect.
X1 Plaque I have #44 of 3000

The Saber is one piece and does not come apart at the middle.
The buttons are nice. I thought the little squares were little clear buttons but on this version they are just indented spots painted black.
The end emmiters are solid. I was hoping for the Hollow end caps.
The weight has some heft.
The saber seems to be smaller than I remember it from the Magic of Myth exhibit. But I am sure it is the correct size.
All and all I give this saber  a 7 out of 10.

I should not complain. At least I have the Darth Maul Saber now in my collection.

Sounds pretty nice, but not quite perfect.  You going to slap that thing into your sweet saber display case David?  Looking forward to updated pix of it when you do.

Most jealous I am...  Wish I had the cojones to go after that MR and old Icons stuff.  Unfortunatley, I think that might be testing my wife's limits a bit too much, all things considered.

They're definitely some beautiful collectibles...

Here you go JediMac



Now to wait for my SaberArt Qui-Gon saber. Then my Lightsaber Collection will be complete. That is until Episode 3. :)

Many years ago I got the Icons Skywalker, Vader, and Obi-Wan sabers from a place that was going out of business called BIG Entertainment. The guy there knew I was into Star Wars and he showed me the three sabers. He gave me a really good deal on all three. I paid less for all three of them than what one costs now. That was my first Lightsaber purchase. Now I am trying to get all the main sabers used in the movies.
They are not cheap. Well worth it I say if you can get them.

I will have to say that my Saber case is probably my pride and joy of my collection.

Man, that's a beautiful set-up and collection you've got there David!  Those are some of the few items that I would really like to own, but just don't have the money to get into right now.  It's 10x harder when I have to see such a great display like yours!   :'(

Have you picked any other MR stuff, like the Han blaster?

I prefer to make my props if possable. The only ones that I have bought are the sabers so far.

I have made my own Luke ESB Blaster



and my Jedi Training Ball




I have a replica Mauser to do the Han Blaster. I just need to get a conversion kit.

Also I have some life size Star Wars creations that I have made. You can check them out at http://mywebpages.comcast.net/bobabinkstoys/STARWARS/lifesize/lifesize.htm
