Quite an announcement from the Master Replicas newsletter:

Due to recent events, Master Replicas has had to scale back our participation at this weekend's Star Wars Celebration IV convention in Los Angeles. And that means, unfortunately, that we will not be selling our two 30 th Anniversary Convention Exclusives - the Wedge Antilles X-wing Scaled Replica Helmet and the Medal of Yavin Scaled Replica - at the show...

BUT, the good news is that we are making these two exclusives available exclusively through www.MasterReplicas.com!!

Of course, our Collectors Society members will still get first crack, as they do on all Master Replicas products. And so this Tuesday, May 22nd at 9 am PST, both exclusives will be made available to the Collectors Society. On Thursday, May 24 th at 9 am - a mere 3 hours before Celebration IV will open - they will go on sale to the general public.

The Wedge Antilles X-wing Helmet Scaled Replica is limited to 1,500 units, and will retail for $55.00. The Medal of Yavin Scaled Replica is limited to 2,500 units worldwide, and will retail for $15.

Don't miss your opportunity to add these very limited exclusives to your Star Wars collection this week!!

Collectors Society Preorder Date: May 22, 2007 (9:00am PST)
General Public Preorder Date: May 24, 2007 (9:00am PST)

Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
