Unfortunately Master Replicas hasn't released any info yet on which props they are going to make next. But since most of their current lightsabers are almost sold out, they'll probably be announcing the next line pretty soon, so keep checking their website.

The only two lightsabers I'm waiting for are Lukes ANH saber, and Maces AOTC saber. Those are my total favorites and they're the only two I would consider spending $300 a pop on. (well, possibley Bens ANH saber) I would bet that Maces lightsaber will be in the next lineup, since it's very distinctice and it would sell very well.

Mauls saber I don't know about though. The only thing holding it back would be the size, which is twice as long as a normal hilt. That means it would probably be MUCH more expensive so they may pass on it.

Personally I'm betting the next replicas will be something like this

1. Maces AOTC lightsaber
2. Qui Gonns lightsaber
3. Stormtrooper E-11 Blaster rifle

I'm literally moments away from posting my interview with Master Replicas here on SSG and while nothing is confirmed, Mace's saber is mentioned by them.

I'd like to see a Biker Scout pistol replica, that couldn't be too expensive could it? (Probably it would be the most expensive.....)

Oh, that's a great idea Basker, I hope they do it!

So JT...did he actually say how much bigger the hilt of the saber is. He said 98% accurate but I took that for the look and not the actual size. Good interview BTW. Thanks.

Never mind what's coming out, which ones are out already, I think these things look really cool and would give anything to own one, shame they're just too expensive:cry: here's to dreaming!:zzz:

well a darth maul lioghtsaber would be pretty cool but probably as mentioned way too expensive since it's twice the size
I'm still thinking of buying Anakin's F/X lightsaber with blade but I don't know where I should get the money for it:(

Sadly not, that is something I secretly hoped would have been revealed but of course, I knew it was likely that they wouldn't want to release anything too specific about that. When he said "98% accurate", he was referring to the details, not the size. I was a bit surprised to hear the movie prop was significantly smaller than the Graflex designs of the classic trilogy, that is something I would loved to have gotten actual dimensions on (as well as those on the MR replica :D).

Glad you liked the interview. :cool:


Jay-Pea Deuce-Naught-Naught-Deuce ;), while I don't have specifics, I believe the MR blades on the FX sabers are hollow plastic tubes with a colored EL sheet (that's the stuff that makes an Indiglo watch light up consuming little energy while staying nearly paper-thin) wrapped around the inside of the tube, then wired up with power and motion sensors.

That's a really great idea LTBasker!. That's one of my favorite designs from the OT and I forgot all about it! I don't see why that would be too expensive. It would definitely be much cheaper than a full sized Stormtrooper Blaster. I hope they consider it.:)

Well, if it were as detailed as the Han Solo blaster, it'd probably be around $500 (like the Han Solo blaster is) because unlike lightsabers which are fairly easy to machine in comparison, the guns require a lot more intricate detailing and more difficult machining.

I'd still LOVE to have one though.
