The folks over at Rebelscum have a nicely detailed chat with Master Replicas concerning their 2005 product lineup. Looks like its gonna be another great year for replicas! http://http://www.rebelscum.com/mrattack2005.asp Looks like they have a new CEO and Business Manager heading things off.

From the article it looks like we're going to get....


Mini-Sabers
2 Lightsaber collections -Sith and Jedi from "Revenge of the Sith" and another convention exclusive!

Helmets!
MR is entering the helmet replica business! Around Movie time they will be releasing the 1st of several Episode III Clonetrooper Helmets! Pricing and details arent set but they will go in the $250-$350 price range!

Lightsaber Replicas!
Around movie time MR will have a Episode III Master Yoda Battle Damage Lightsaber replica! and MORE Episode III sabers on April 2nd including Anakin and Obi-Wan's!

Elite Lightsabers
This line doesnt make any sense to me -but whatever. The next Elite Replica will be Luke Skywalker's Lightsaber from "A New Hope" limited to 750 pieces available in the March timeframe.

Blasters
MR has Han Solo's Blaster from "The Empire Strikes Back" on tap for '05. It will be made from slightly different materials from the 1st version. It shouldnt have an orange plug abd will not be made with a working trigger. (fine with me -sine they dont actually fire)

FX Lightsabers and Studio Models!
More of both but MR wasn't ready to spill the beans quite yet.

I'm extremely excited about the 2005 MR releases. I just recently started collecting SW props, having been a fan since '77. I really hope that the mini sabers are available with jedi and sith cases like the 04 collections, and that I'm able to buy them without resorting to ebay. I would also like to see if they could squeeze the FX electronics into a Dooku handle...

A Dooku FX Lightsaber would be awesome! I'd buy one.

In '05 I'm planning on getting the ROTS Yoda Lightsaber and ESB Han Solo Blaster. I'll get an Emperor Palpatine Lightsaber if they plan on doing one.
