Nope the second wave sold out in 8 minutes. The most u can hope for now is getting it off Ebay or something. But there might be speculation that MR will now make a Luke ANH LE but it wont be exactly the same as the EE. sorry MS I was hoping you would be there with us.

Hello Everyone!

Congrats to everyone who was able to pick up the Luke Elite! If you were unable to get one, we do have a waiting list. I am sure there will be some credit card declines and cancellations. If there are and we have any available we will contact people on our waiting list to see if they still want one. If you are interested, just send us an email to customerservice@masterreplicas.com.

Nash I wouldn't worry like the AT-AT I am sure they will make more... Just like every hot item they have sold like the Luke Saber ROTJ the Han Solo Blaster and the AT-AT...

hey nash, what's up? I'm new here and was wondering if you got your Luke EE yet. I was totally misinformed by the staff at Master Replicas on how to order the saber with my membership account. By the time I finally figured it out, no thanks to them, they were sold out. I was a little ****ed to say the least, but I got over it and bought one on e-bay for $100 more. It stung a little but I think it will be worth it. Mine won't be here until the 16th and i was wondering how good they look. I'm really curious about the crystal, if there is if fact a crystal. Let me know if you get the chance.

Thanks!

By the way, I heard from a good source that MR is going to release a LE Skywalker from ANH next year, not that it matters now.

dunno if Nash got his yet but mine arrived yesterday and its awesome. pictures online dont do it justice. no crystal, MR said its because of the way the emitter is and you can see why when you get it.

What makes it so awesome? How is it different in quality? Can you post some pics? I can't believe it doesn't have a crystal when I called MR and specifically and asked if it does and they said 'yes'. Just another case of misinformed employees. I don't care if the EE doesn't have a crystal, but don't lie to me and say it does. This definitly is not the first time they have done this (give me false info).

Thanks for the info DX

havent swung it around Yeek. took it out of the box, popped some pictures and put it to rest on the shelf. looks awesome up there.

lukespop, i totally agree. they said all along there was going to be a blue crystal and i was looking forward to it. i can understand though since it would basically be glued on the curved little emitter piece and not "encrusted" like on the ROTJ Luke.
this is my first full sized piece so i can really compare it to the other hilts but the metal looks much more impressive up close. i'm curious how the weight it compared to the LEs, its like holding one of those hand weights, like 7 pounds im guessing.

can you tell me how you can order an EE through the membership account since you figured it out, because I wanted to know just incase I'll order an EE in the future (hoping for the release of an EE vader saber)..:D

Yeah, all you do is click on "my account", put in your e-mail and then password. That should get you into the "secret site". When they release the EE it will show up until it is sold out. Whatever you do, don't ask the "service people" at Master Replicas. As we have seen they don't know everything they should about the products they sell and how to sell them. I would clear everything with these guys in the forums, they seem to know alot about the product and the best way to get them. i wish i would have consulted them bfore the 28th of last mounth. They have been a hell-of-alot more helpful then Master Replicas. Maybe DX and nash should be on the MR payroll. I love thier poroducts but thier customer service sucks. I guess you can't have everything, but you think you would at $525 a pop.

Sorry for the late reply guys. Heres a few pics from another forum. I just received my Luke ANH EE today and i got #0107! im so happy with it, it looks amazing! im glad they didnt have the crystal in the emmiter i dont think that is realistic looking at all.

Hmm, at the top meaning where the blade would be emmited from "emmitter" ?

Is it that circle right under and connected to the two bunny ear fins? if youre talking about that, its fully movable, and it was meant to be this way as it is that way on an actual Graflex. if its way to one side, just move it with your finger back to the center. is that what youre talking about?

Hey nash,

I guess your right about the crystal. The true prop wouldn't have a crystal in it.... only in a galaxy far, far away. So your pretty excited about it, uh? How does it compare to the other saber props? Mine is suppose to arrive on the 13th and I'm getting a little impatient. Thanks for the pics.

hi lukespop, this Luke ANH EE is my first full size prop. I have 10 minis which is what i started off buying. Then my wonderful girlfriend convinced me that instead of spending $400 on minis, i should just get a full size. Im really happy with the ANH EE as this is my all time dream lightsaber. Ive wanted one since i was a very small child and now i got one. My next conquest is goign to be the Obiwan TPM EE for sure, and I will hold out on the ROTS Anakin and Obiwan until next year when im sure their prices will fall dramatically due to their large edition size.

Or maybe ill just make my collection with EE only hehe. Not likely :)

Your girlfriend suggested you buy the full size? Dude, hang on to that one! Where did you hear they are going to make a EE obi-wan? Buy the way, I've got a full scale obi-wan ROTS and it is totally worth the $350 I dropped on it. I highly recommend it. Maybe your girlfriend will too!!
