    Those are two good ones. I like how when you join the society and log in, Black Chrome Han Solo, and that 2005 CS with the full Maul appear with the others on the MR website in the scaled section. I'm thinking I want the full one now, too. I definately want that Solo.

    Of course I work late today and tomorrow, and I missed the DHL driver with my order today. Beauty.

    Here's my three latest.

    [image=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v235/wood/vade2.jpg]Vader ROTS
    [image=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v235/wood/Image94.jpg]Maul
    [image=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v235/wood/Image55.jpg]Flat Finish Mace is one of the nicest, in my opinion. You see the diffence between the gold and grey more than on the shiny one.
    [image=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v235/wood/Widumprod.jpg]I'm sure it's based on the one in this AOTC production photo.
    [image=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v235/wood/PDVD_106.jpg]Rather than this one from ROTS or the one on his belt in the 'So it is done' scene in AOTC.
    Mace 2
    Mace 3
    Maul 2

    Now I need some cases. I'm going to try not to handle them much, anymore.

    I picked up the scaled replica of Han's TESB blaster today at a comic shop. It's pretty nice. Weighs more than I thought it would, and has awesome detail. One of the coolest reasons to get it is the case it comes with. It can hold a scaled saber perfectly. In fact, I'm thinking about displaying a saber in the case and just displaying the blaster on it's stand, so I can set it next to the ANH Han bust. I'm definitely picking up the Stormtrooper blaster when it comes out.

    At the same place they had the chrome Sidious .45 and the gold ROTJ Luke and gold ROTS Anakin .45. I passed as I don't like any of the variant sabers. They did have a regular ROTS Anakin that I'm going back for next payday.

    Nice. Yeah, I was surprised, at the weight of Maul and Mace. Vader ROTS is mostly cheap, plastic crap.

    I was actually going to order Black Chrome Han today (payday), but I just forked out $250 for a new cell phone so it'll have to wait. I'll also eventually get the regular one, and damn do I ever want the trooper blaster.

    That's disappointing about the ROTS Vader. I'm buying one from someone, but it's for a really good price so if it's not as nice as the others it's no big loss.

    I put the ROTS Dooku saber in the case for Han's blaster. It looks great! These cases are much better suited for the sabers than the blasters, or at least Han's. It looked kinda funny in there, the case made it seem so small. A saber fills it up much better.

    I think I'll pick up the Boba Fett blaster rifle too. Hopefully they'll make a clonetrooper rifle one day. I'd be all over that.

    Just won a .45 sidious on eBay today....only $25 shipped. I'm very happy!!!!

    Now all I need is to get Mace, Yoda, and Maul....and some of the cases...yes...it's all going according to plan.

    Yoda's is so smal yet so cool looking it's hard to justify spending $30+ on such an EXTRA small saber.

    Well JediStarkiller, I also had doubts about buying the Yoda but eventually I did and even ended up buying the full scale replica as well! So the only thing I can say is GO FOR IT! (even though I have the full scale I still like the scaled one)

    I want to see Qui Gon Jinn, and hopefully Obi Wan Kenobi Episode I, because I missed the Episode II version. I only hope they make Obi TPM, but I would bet Qui Gon is one of the next, for sure.

    AOTC Obi-wan Kenboi
    ROTS Darth Vader
    ROTS Darth Tyranus
    ROTS Anakin Skywalker
    ROTS Yoda
    ROTS Yoda (Dark Chrome)
    ROTS Darth Sidious

    Plus I have 6 of the trio display cases, so one saber is loose for now.

    I also have a question. Many months ago someone gave a link to a website that lists the prices that master replica items are going for on ebay, but I can't find it. Does anyone know what site this is?

    Qui-Gon is coming, but it's only going to be available as part of the Collector's Society over at MR. Youll find all the deatils here: http://masterreplicas.com//store/star_wars/scaled_replicas/8705/ I think it's probably worth the extra funds, even if it's the only thing I wind up buying this year.

    So here's my collection of scaled replicas.

    [image=http://i176.photobucket.com/albums/w170/wood03/DSC00276.jpg]

    I got these two last Thursday.

    [image=http://i176.photobucket.com/albums/w170/wood03/DSC01249.jpg]

    I just ordered Return of the Jedi Luke Skywalker today, next week, I'll order Yoda from Revenge of the Sith (I had previously ordered this one from another place, but cancelled it before it shipped) and 4 display cases, Before it's done I will also get Boba Fett - ROTJ again for the standard version, Han Solo - TESB for the standard version, Stormtrooper Blaster, all the helmets, and then duplicates of as many as I can... and any other ones they may release between now and the end.

    I love these things. They look so damn cool.

    Nice collection there, QuiColdGinn!

    I'm slowing expanding my scaled collection. I only have two right now, in the collector exclusive darth maul, and ep III obi-wan. I'll be getting Boba and Han's blaster for sure.

    Yeah, thanks. I like it too. I want that Darth Maul now as well. I hope they also do a Obi-Wan TPM before they're through.

    Know what pisses me off? I leave the internet for a few days, MR releases something like this, I jump online, and what do ya know? It's sold out and there's a waiting list. I need every one of those except Episode III Vader (And Anakin, although I have the dark chrome variant). My Luke Skywalker was 'backordered' for a week and a half, probably due to that Mara Jade Lightsaber. I don't get it. It's EU for god sakes!?!? To me the OT things are just so damn cool because they're as SW as it gets.

    EDIT : They're mystical, legendary.

    Well I missed that Shadow Stormtrooper scaled helmet (yes, it's stupid EU but I love the look of it), and I missed that $100 Revenge of the Sith 5 pack, but I just noticed all the half price stuff on the website so I ordered another display case, Yoda - Revenge of the Sith, full length Darth Maul, and thinking of my good brother not knowing how long they'll be on sale, I also grabbed him a Darth Vader - A New Hope.

    Great deals.

    So for my last order, I tried to get Yoda ROTS, Luke ANH, Vader ANH (for my brother), Full Length Darth Maul, and 2 Medals of Yavin.

    They were in my basket. When I actually went to check out, the medals were sold out. ****y! So whatever, I get the sabers and they sent me a gold Yoda. Very awesome, but seeing as how I already scored that gold scope Fett chase, I passed it on to my brother who had no chase versions. The best part about it is that I paid only $15 for it. I'll order that one again for myself.

    My collection is really getting awesome.

    EDIT : The Maul saber is HUGE. It's awesome.

    Hi guys.

    New collector here. Began my collection when i visited the 30th anniversary exhibition over here in London.

    I bought Maul and Vader(IV). Once I got home I decided that I must collect.

    I found a Yoda(III) and Obi Wan(IV) and am currently waiting for them. I also ordered the collectors Darth Maul and the Qui Gon (the one with the membership. The full Maul and Qui Gon look like they may be quite valuable in a couple of years time.

    Does anyone know the full list of what sabers were made?

    That's why I don't think it's that big of a deal that MR is done. After they've been gone for a while, this stuff will be wanted.
