Master Replicas
When Master Replicas made the announcement that Lucasfilm granted them the Star Wars props license, prop collectors and enthusiasts rejoiced with the good news not only because of officially licensed props now being available, but also because Master Replicas and its proprietary, Steve Dymszo, have an outstanding reputation in the Star Wars Custom Props and Replica community. Master Replicas previewed their initial offerings at Toy Fair. Shown were the new Luke Skywalker lightsaber from Return of the Jedi, Han Solo's Blaster from A New Hope, and Obi-Wan Kenobi's lightsaber from Attack of the Clones. Also displayed was Yoda's lightsaber from Attack of the Clones. Unfortunately, Master Replicas requested that we not show this item in respect of Lucasfilm's guidelines. They also exhibited their new electro luminescent FX lightsaber with very cool sound effects. From viewing these up close, the quality and attention to detail are quite amazing. Even the weight and feel of Han's blaster is impressive.Here's Master Replicas' initial Product and Release List for 2002:

Han Solo Blaster (SW-101, April 2)
Luke Lightsaber (SW-102, April 2)
Obi-Wan Kenobi Lightsaber (SW-103, April 23)

Count Dooku Lightaber (SW-105, June)
Anakin FX Edition (SW-201, May)
Darth Vader FX Edition (SW-202, Fall)
Display Case (SW-501, April 2)

The replica lightsabers average $299 each with the Han Solo blaster at $449. The FX sabers costs $129 and the walnut and acrylic display case for $49.

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.
