    Has Master Replicas gone too far? Emperor's Cane, Yavin Ceremony Medals.

    This is a somewhat humorous thread, but a somewhat serious one.

    Master Replicas - what was really cool or should be done:

    the thermal detonator is totally cool
    the lightsaber training seeker is likewise, nicely done!

    This list of lightsabers is either done, or should be:

    Qui-Gon Jinn
    Qui-Gon Jinn F/X
    Obi-Wan Kenobi (TPM)
    Obi-Wan Kenobi F/X (TPM)
    Obi-Wan Kenobi (ANH)
    Obi-Wan Kenobi F/X (ANH)
    Anakin Skywalker
    Anakin Skywalker F/X
    Darth Vader
    Darth Vader F/X
    Mace Windu
    Mace Windu F/X
    Count Dooku
    Count Dooku F/X
    Darth Maul
    Darth Maul F/X
    Darth Maul battle damaged
    Darth Maul battle damaged F/X
    Master Yoda
    Master Yoda F/X
    Luke Skywalker (ANH)
    Luke Skywalker F/X (ANH)
    Luke Skywalker (ROTJ)
    Luke Skywalker F/X (ROTJ)

    Then Blasters:

    Han Solo ANH
    Han Solo ANH F/X
    Han Solo ROTJ
    Han Solo ROTJ F/X
    Luke Skywalker (ESB)
    Luke Skywalker (ESB) FX
    Stormtrooper F/X
    Stormtrooper Rifle
    Stormtrooper Rifle F/X
    Tusken Gaderffi Stick
    Rebel Fleet Trooper Blaster
    Rebel Fleet Trooper Blaster F/X
    Hoth Soldier Rifle
    Hoth Soldier Rifle F/X
    Bespin Blaster
    Bespin Blaster F/X
    Chewbacca's Bowcaster
    Chewbacca's Bowcaster F/X
    Boba Fett's blaster rifle
    Boba Fett's blaster rifle F/X
    Boba Fett's rocket pack
    Boba Fett's wrist rocket pack
    Jango Fett's blasters
    Jango Fett's wrist blades package
    Jango Fett's saberdart package
    Jango Fett's flame thrower package
    Battle Droid Blaster
    Nabbo Royal Guard Ascension Gun
    Naboo Royal Security Rifle
    Padme's blaster
    Princess Leia's blaster with silencer (ANH)
    Princess Leia's blaster (ROTJ)
    Luke Skywalker's borrowed Jabba Blaster (ROTJ)
    Weequay force pike
    Gamorrean Vibro-blade
    Boussh's laser rifle
    Dengar's Slug-thrower Cannon
    Bossk's blaster rifle
    4-Lom's double barrels
    Gungan Electropole
    Jawa ion blaster
    Bikerscout blaster
    Chewie's bandolier and ammo cartridges
    Qui-Gon's midichlorian counter...(well maybe it shouldn't be done)
    Han Solo's lifesigns scanner (ESB)

    THINGS THAT SHOULD PROBABLY NOT BE DONE, (but seem likely, or have happened already):

    The Emperor's Cane
    The Yavin Medal of Valor (ok... well I might start liking this one...)
    Princess Leia's hairclips (only $399)
    C-3PO's commlink ( might be cool...)
    Leia's wrist communicator (ROTJ...might sort of be cool)
    Chewie's welding goggles
    Han & Chewie's hydrospanner set
    Luke's prosthetic hand
    Han Solo's oxygen mask
    TuanTaun entrails
    Padme's trick handcuffs (AOTC)
    Poggle the Lesser's staff
    Yoda's hover chair (unless they can incorporate it into a child's auto safety seat)

    I don't know. This thread is less funny than I thought it would be, but actually presents some cool possibilities.

    But what is MR's role going to be? Weaponsmith or costume accessorizor. There stuff is very expensive to buy to wear, but some of it (like lightsabers) you just can't help but want to wear anyway.

    If a prop of C-3PO's commlink was made, don't you think it would have to be reasonably priced - like at $50 or less? I mean it gets sort of silly with The Emperor's Cane, don't you think?

    I dunno. I like the Cane and Medal. It's just something unique. I was sick of seeing sabers. The Thermal Detonator and the two above mentioned items were a breath of fresh air.

    MTFBWY and HH!!

    Some of the stuff like sabers and some blasters are cool. The medals sound nice too. I dont know about the cane and such. Making all those blasters and accessories sounds kinda lame. Although 400 bucks for some hair clips.......hmmmmmmmmmmmm

    Maybe they can make a replica of Hammerheads double barrel blaster rifle

    Pretty much ANY thing seen on screen can/will be made. No matter how odd or ridiculous it seems. Lots of people would rather see other props being made. I do. But they will release what they have to to make money and hold the market.

    I like the Yavin Medal and the Jedi Training Remote. Very cool and legitimate props. I could really care less about 4-LOM's gun or a Hoth Soldier rifle.

    The more props the merrier, I like them all.

    The background props are useless. You're friends and family will be all over how "cool!" Luke Skywalker or Obi-Wan Kenobi's Lightsabers are and then when they see 4-LOM's rifle you'll say...

    "Uhh, remember in "Empire" in that one scene that one bounty hunter is holding this gun -you see it for just a second but isnt it cool!?"
