As all of you are aware Master Replicas announced that it will not continue producing Star Wars collectibles in 2008. We have truly enjoyed providing fantastic products to collectors worldwide. We have seen it as our purpose to produce high quality authentic props that exceed expectations.

As the end draws near, we wanted our community of collectors to understand this process. There has been much speculation, so we wanted you have the facts.

Master Replicas will not be selling products in 2008 and will not be accepting orders after December 31, 2007 from any consumers or customers. Any orders for existing product that are in the system prior to this date will be shipped before 3/31/08.

What does this mean? Well, it means when we sell out of a product on the site that there are no more. Many collectors have called in recently and even more on our forums inquiring about promotions or sales of products in the first quarter of 2008. Many of our products have recently sold out. Unfortunately this has caught some of you by surprise, in the hope of picking up products at a later date or at a lower price. Based on current rates of sale, products will be sold out before the end of the year. If you are interested in an item, you need to place an order or you may miss out. Understand that in some cases the wait lists have close to 100 names on them and we start at the beginning. The only time that product is made available to the wait list is when we experience credit card declines or cancellations.

The link below is a chart outlining our product status. Many of you have asked us to share this share information to assist in keeping track of what you've ordered and what is still available. This provides you the status of each product by category. You will undoubtedly notice that a great deal of the Star Wars line is sold out and many items have limited inventory available, so get your collectibles before they are gone!

Thanks again for your loyalty over the years, on the Star Wars line. We are very much looking forward to providing you with an exciting range of authentic high quality James Bond, Star Trek, Pirates of the Caribbean, Muppets, Halo, Battle Star Galactica, Disney Classics, The Beatles, Marvel and Nintendo collectibles.
