    Hi guys,

    basically about a month ago I started searching for the Qui-Gon Jinn hilt or the Obi-Wan hilt from Phantom Menace, the guys over at FX-sabers advised me of how much I should be looking to pay, but in the UK there doesn't seem to be any shops selling them anymore or anyone advertising on ebay.

    Does anyone know of any speciality shops?
    I'm also looking for Ahsoka hilt but I believe it's made by eFX and should still be available?

    If you're near London try the Forbidden Planet Megastore on Shaftesbury Ave. You could also take a look on their website. They have other branches but I believe the London store is the largest.

    Didn't Master Replicas discontinue most of the sabers they were doing? They used to be under £100 now the go for a lot.

    I think they lost the license, if I recall correctly. I believe eFX got it.

    They do some in toy shops now that seem like cheaper versions, terribly sensitive though. Every time I put one back the blade comes back on :p

    Forbidden Planet in Southampton has some lightsabres. Don't know who makes them but they look full sized and accurate.
