    Got my Qui Gon and full Maul yesterday. Very impressed with the delivery and conditions it came in.

    I also received my Obi wan (IV) and Yoda today. For some reason i was sent the gold version of Yodas lightsaber even though i ordered and paid for the original version.

    Im not picky so I think ill just keep it.

    I was just wondering where you lot buy your lightsabers from. I live in London (UK) and the prices here are ridiculous so I end up buying online and from the US. I'm new at this and have only found Master Replicas site and Redford Films. I want to find the sabers for cheap due to the fact that i end up paying quite a bit for the shipping.

    I would be gratefull for any advice.

    Cheers

    If you ordered it from MR, you're lucky they sent you a gold Yoda. Awesome, isn't it? I get most of mine right from MR. I scored Tyranus from a store up here where I live, my brother bought me Dark Chrome Anakin from SW.com, and I ordered Vader Episode III from Sears up here in Canada. Where I live there are no places I can find that sell these, so I usually order directly from MR. I'm in the same position as you.

    antderviso - check our Online Resource thread stickied at the top of the forum thread list. There are some sites listed by country that we have found reliable. The only UK site I will inject a caution about is R2dtoys. They used to be very good and reliable but they have gone downhill recently. A couple of people here and on Rebelscum have had problems with getting stuff and credit cards being incorrectly charged. I preordered the recent Jango minibust from them. It came late but I did get it eventually.

    Thanks for the feedback guys.

    I had bought the Yoda from play.com - i thought it was a bargain for £8.99. Little did i know they would accidentally send me the gold version. It looks awesome.

    Received 3 more sabers today. Obi 3, Luke 5 and Vader 5.

    Guess what? The vader saber turned out to be gold yet again.

    I was just wondering. Are the gold chase saber more valuable than the standard one or are they pretty much the same?.

    Im actually pleased that the vader turned out to be gold due to the fact that 4 and 5 only have subtle differences between each other.

    The gold sabers are more valuable. I think they average about $100 on ebay. I would never sell any of mine (I gave away the Yoda) but I am still curious as to how many of those gold Fett blasters there are and what they go for. I don't think there has even been one of those on ebay.

    I got my standard Yoda Last week and my standard Solo blaster yesterday.

    Now before I move on to helmets, to complete my blaster/lightsaber collection I need Anakin AOTC, Standard Boba Fett, and one display case.

    Im planning on moving onto blasters after i am satisfied with my lightsaber collection.

    received a sidious European exclusive. I didn't realise Sidious used such a small saber. Its only slightly larger than Yodas one.

    I seem to get hooked, fall away for a few months and then get hooked again.

    Just now I threw a Scaled Boba Fett Helmet, another Fett Blaster (standard version hopefully), Medal of Yavin, and a display case in my cart. I need to straighten out my maxed credit card tonight or tomorrow. Too many addictions.

    I think I need (I don't even know anymore as my collection has been stashed in a box for months) one more saber to fill a case, and I want the Stormy helmet, Lukes Helmet, and a Clone Helmet of some kind (I'm thinking Gree) to finish mine.

    These are some kick ass trinkets. I'm glad I own as many of them as I do them.

    Well, according to the website everything Star Wars is sold out. That's it for Star Wars Master Replicas.

    There's a few things I would like to track down before I'm done but here's my scaled collection as it stands.

    [image=http://i176.photobucket.com/albums/w170/wood03/DSC03025.jpg]This has to be one of the most acurate detailed pieces of Fett stuff ever.

    We have a store here in San Diego called Frye's, it is a big electronics store. Wal-mart sized but all computers, TVs, electronics etc. They are selling those mini MR lightsabers that come in the boxes for $9.99 each.

    I just built a miniature photo studio, for miniature items, such as remote controls, watches, and maybe even the Star Wars Master Replica .45 Scale Lightsabers!

    I think why I like these so much is that in the photo, the detail on the .45 scale sabers are so good that they look like the full scale hilts, even for being 3-4 inches in actual size.

    /\ You are right, those do look full scale. I guess it depends on what kind of camera you have as well.

    For those of you in Southern California, the Fry's Electronics at City of Industry has a ton of Obi-wan Episode 3 and Anakin Episode 3 sabers for $9.99 apiece. Boxes are pretty banged up though, but for people like me who open them and put them in a display case, it doesn't really matter. On a related note, there's also a small pile of Luke and Yoda ForceFX sabers for $64.99 apiece.
