Stop talking like that about the ESB saber >:(

You're making me jealous.  I need that green one dagnabbit.  Here's hoping they do re-release it sometime in the near future.  I really like the hilt on it as well, as it's quite unique.

Yeah, not sure if I like it more for the color or hilt.  I would like know how they determine which sabers will get made next.  Would make sense to do a survey with the collectors of these things.

Also, is there a better place to order from than MR's site?  I have seen them at Wal-Mart.com, Target.com, as well as SWShop all for cheaper prices, although I think they only have the Anakin saber from what I have seen.

You won't be sorry if you order from Jeff.  Just a great person and great prices.

I'll concur and will mention he's away until Sunday, so if you email him, you'll have to wait for a response.  He sure seems like a good guy based on my limited contact and I'll heartily agree those prices look good.  I'm just waiting to hear about the Mace Saber and I'll be ordering a couple from him. 

The only other MR piece I have is a full size Vader hilt.

Thank you so much for that link jadesfire, definitely looks like some nice prices there...and from what you guys are saying, sounds like a good guy too.  I don't have any MR products yet, but I've always thought they look amazing, and I'd really like to start off with one of these FX sabers.  I really would like the ESB Luke one, but the ROTS Anakin one is a bit cheaper, and doesn't look too much different.  Plus, it is the "new" 3 battery style...although I don't know if that makes any difference or not :P.  Thanks again.

I assume this is sarcasm?   :-\

The guy from saber vault is very cool.  I placed an order (thanks to a tip from this board), and he emailed me to say he is out of town, but will ship my purchase on Monday.  I was impressed with that.  Nice customer service.   :)

It isn't as smooth as the Anakin one, and is much heavier, but is still a great purchase!

I'm sorry, yes it is :-[

Bit of a nasty problem I have there.  Try not to take me seriously unless I point out that I'm actually being serious.  With respect to the Luke saber, it's just jealousy at not having it nor currently being able to get it at a reasonable price.  nothing more.

Very much so, Dan.  We have a lot of that here (especially in Morbug's case)...  ;)

I've fallen so far behind on the FX sabers, that I barely know where to start with catching up now.  Seems like there's been so many versions released that I've totally lost track of things.  I'll have to spend a while perusing the tail end of this thread to re-educate myself on these great pieces.

Cool.   ;)  No probem bro!  It's all good.  I'm all about the sarcasm, just ask Brian (Darth Broem).  I figured you were joking, but you know how some people can be on the other boards.   ::)   It seems like there are nothing but cool people over here though.  I'm pretty sure www.bigtimecomics.com has a good price on Luke's ESB saber.  I hope that helps.   :)

By the way, excellent article here by the big cheese with some insight on the Luke ROTJ F/X, although unfortuntely, it doesn't sound promising.   :(

Thanks for the link, but I'm going to play Devil's Advocate and be optimistic at the same time:

Quote
The LEs will always be our core product but we have so many orders for FXs that those are a focus of the company now. Those, and the minis. We've gotten tons and tons of orders for the minis

I think they'll re-release the Luke ROTJ FX saber based on that statement alone.  Companies must pay attention to the secondary market.  These were never stated as limited.  They've got newer, better electronics.  Why not bite into some of that money that's flowing through ebay?

I understand the point on the oddity of it because the neck has to be relatively huge, but people obviously still want it. 

No real big deal to me, I just want a green FX saber.  If they do another version down the road, that's fine.  I'm not adamant about Luke, just want one of each color.
