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)

Now that you've seen the prototypes of Hot Toys' upcoming Movie Masterpiece Series MMS261 Han Solo and MMS262 Chewbacca 1/6 scale figures, our ever inquisitive Probe Droid is tasked to find out whether you are going to collect the line.
Hot Toys had me at "Hello There"
1/6 scale collecting has just lept forward. I'm in!
I hope the actual products are better than the prototypes, and if they are I'm interested in collecting this line.
This will be my first venture into the realm of 1/6 scale collecting...
I'm a 1/6 scale collector, but I'm not interested.
I'm not a 1/6 scale collector, so no, I won't get into this line (yet).
