Master Replicas: Mini-sabers
« on: May 25, 2004, 10:50 PM »
I am sorry if there is already a thread about this.  I was looking to see if there was.

I just recieved my Luke mini saber, I have the other two coming when they are available.

I was just wondering what everyone thought about them?  I was sorta shocked at how small it was, but it does look really cool.

I think they're pretty neat, but I dont collect them since I have their large counterparts.

Lucky!!!!

Actually having this small one is making me want a big one more, I know that I will eventually end up getting one.

I still havent seen them in person yet, but I've heard lots of good things. They look top notch in the pictures, cant be beat at that price either

The pics make em look bigger, but they do look cool, but they are really small.

If I go to GenCon this year, I may pick up the exclusive AFBB Obi Wan saber

I was definitely interested in these when they first announced them, 'cause I'm not currently willing/able to afford the better, larger versions right now like Daddy Warbucks here...   ;)  Still haven't decided though.  I know some day I'd eventually like to have the larger ones, so I'm tempted to just hold out for those, and not mess with these smaller ones.

But they definitely look cool, and are an excellent, more affordable option for Master Replicas collectibles...

Here's a nice comparison shot (from this auction) of the size of the regular sabers vs. the size of these new scaled down ones:



Dammit, these little things are tempting...   :-\

I have to admit, when I first opened my mini-Luke I was disappointed.  It was SO small.  I know the size was listed when I purchased the set but I was stunned when I got it.  I hemmed and hawed about sending it back until it finally grew on me.  I actually like the way it is displayed in the book form but since the case for all three is free, I'll end up using that when it comes.  My card was charged today for the next one up (Obi-wan's) so that should be here by next week.  I want the mini AFBB Obi-wan from the convention circuit but am not so sure about ordering the gold one from the collector society exclusive offering.  
I really am looking forward to the "dark-side" sabers, I really think Dooku's will be the best of the three.  This really is the way to go if you are thinking about any type of replica but don't want to drop hundreds of dollars on purchasing the "actual" size ones.

They are so cool
I have the first one and preordered the other two
My two year old loves it it's the perfect size for a little kid

I think I may check it out at GenCon, and make a final decision then...

Well, it looks like Im going to be getting them... lol I had recently traded an Artist Proof (Thermal Detonator) with a guy at the 'Scum. Well one of the two items got cancelled, so he's filling out the trade with a set of minis.

Make sure you take them out of the box and display them.

Definitely will, but probably not until I get the entire series w/ display case. I'm very anal about my stuff getting dusty...
