Steve is covering the New York Fall Toy Show, and Master Replicas is there, here's the article with the link to the photos: http://www.sirstevesguide.com/index.php?categoryid=11&p2_articleid=416

First off, bravo to MR for getting the Riddell .45-scale helmet tooling! These are some of my favorite SW collectibles and I'm glad to see they're making a return, plus there's an unproduced TIE Pilot helmet on display, that's great.

Secondly, wow, a Yoda Force FX Saber that's actually in scale with smaller hilt and shorter & narrower blade, that's wild! It's kind of full-circle for you guys too, if I remember correctly the Yoda saber hilt is part of how MR was born.

Some other stuff in there too, but those are the ones I focused in on.

Great, any word on a release date? I saw the TIE Pilot helmet and X-Wing helmet at Celebration 3 like 2 years ago! LOL:D

Oh and MSRP?:yes: :D ;)

The X-wing mini-helmet is part of the original Riddell release.

I'd like to know MSRP on these as well!

So looking forward to the Yoda FX. My wife and I really enjoy the four FX's we have now and really want Yoda's for the collection.

I'm very happy about the news too! I'll definatly buy all the Mini-helmets. The Riddell helmets were among the most under-rated collectibles. I'm glad they'll make a return.

Tht is awesome that they are making a Yoda FX saber!!! My daughter has wanted a FX since I came home with mine from C3. And the Yoda one is just big enough for her. She's gonna be happy about that!

Sweet!!! Hopefully this means I'll finally be able to get the .45 Boba Fett and Stormy helmets. I've been trying to snag those on ebay, but the prices..... ugh..

I've tried tracking down those too Reefer Shark and its too $$$ to be worth it. I bet we'll get better upgraded versions with MR. The Boba looks great and hopefully they have the Stormtrooper in the works also.

Anybody know what the new Force FX-Q lightsaber is all about? I saw a Luke and Vader FX-Q saber listed in MR's new catalog but I didn't see any photos.

Good work Steve and JT, these helmets sound great. :)
I can't view the photos, though. :(

What happens when you try to view the events gallery?

"You do not have permission to view the images in this category."

That's what I got. I later realized I could login from that page so I tried again but I still got the above message. Thanks, JT. :)

Ah, ok, I am getting the same thing now, apparently there was an issue and MR asked Steve to pull the images because some stuff wasn't approved. :(
