STAR WARS
MASTER REPLICAS IS ON A HOT STREAK THIS SUMMER


Star Wars aficionados, be prepared to have the time of your
lives! We won't be kicking back this summer, and neither will
you when you see this summer's stellar lineup of collectibles.
June's the month for our biggest and most exciting Star Wars
splash ever! First, we're announcing two new glowing FX
lightsabers. When you see these, you won't hesitate for a
moment about joining the ranks of the Jedi heroes. Chose from
the Luke FX Collectible with a blue blade from Star Wars: The
Empire Strikes Back or the Mace FX Collectible with a purple
blade from Star Wars: The Attack of the Clones.



Later this month, watch for a suite of blasters--the Rebel
Trooper Blaster, the Stormtrooper Blaster, and the sleek
Princess Leia Blaster--all seen in the classic Star Wars
trilogy. And, to top it all off, we'll also be releasing our
first vehicle prop replica: the AT-AT Imperial Walker.



This summer promises to be anything but lazy! Barbeques and
hammocks will be just a faint memory once you see our most
exciting array of prop replicas ever.



That's pretty cool that we will be able to order all the blasters all at once, and then just wait until late Summer through Fall for them to ship. The only blaster that seems to have a confirmed ship date is the Stormie blaster (December) according to multiple, reliable, sources. It'll still be a big hit towards the end of the year for those ordering all the blasters, and possibly the AT-AT, but at least we have some time to prepare. :)

Wow, now all I have to do is win the lottery. ;)

Seriously though, any news on whether that Luke ESB F/X saber will be EL, or LEDs like Vader's? That's one I'm seriously considering. I wanted Luke's ROTJ F/X saber so bad until I found out it was EL (especially irritating since green is one of the most easily-produced LED colors).

Not too sure which it'll be. I'm guessing it could be the same as the Anakin FX, but again I'm not sure. :)

I thought it was mentioned somewhere that it will be an LED saber.... :confused:

I also heard it was an LED blade like the Vader. I'll have to ask one of the dealers that went to the ToyFair.

I plan on getting the Luke and Mace FX sabers. I already see the Mace is slightly bloated to hold the electronics. Curious about the Luke. I have enough Graflexes (Grafli?) that if the Luke was enlarged, it would feel weird.

Hey Mini-Rock...are you pretty sure the Stormie blaster is coming out in December? If so, that's good to know I'll have time to save up. :)

Glad to hear you got the bust. Mine (yours) just arrived too. I'm really glad everything went smoothly. And thanks for helping me out. :D

No problem man. Now, if you would just order MY AT-AT and ship it to me, I will be a happy camper. :D

I would consider the sources very reliable. Of course, anything is "subject to change." :)

Most Definitely! I figure it's a fair trade for the 1:1 scale Death Star you're giving me. Just make sure you send it "Signature Required". If the neighbors see my Death Star lying on my porch...they'll start talking. ;)

LEDs, thanks for the info guys! That's awesome if it comes to pass, I just hope it doesn't get delayed like the Vader one was.

FYI, the Mace and Luke FX sabers will go on sale for CSM's on the 23rd. Guess I'll be picking up a couple Mace sabers for the kids. :)

Wake me when MR releases a Biker Scout pistol or a Han Solo blaster that's not ridiculously overpriced. :mad:
