Limited Edition Master Replicas Version 2 STAR WARS Return of the Jedi Luke Skywalker Lightsaber Prop Replica

So I’ve just posted a link to score a rare version 1 Master Replicas Luke Skywalker TOJ Force FX Lightsaber as well as some links to score the later model Hasbro produced version.

But while the Force FX models are arguably collectors pieces rather than toys you may be the type of collector who only wants a serious replica (okay, serious as in seriously like the original screen used prop). If that’s the case then you might take interest in knowing a limited edition Master Replicas version 2 replica of Luke’s lightsaber from Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi is currently up for sale.

The image above is of the one in question and as you can see it is limited number 126 of 1,500. Very cool!

The seller says it’s in basically as-new condition:

It has only been handled with gloves once to put it in its display case. It has been on display in a glass curio cabinet away from sunlight and in a temperature controlled and smoke free home.

This replica lightsaber won’t last long, that’s for sure. As I type this post already 4 offers have been received by the seller – yes, he is accepting offers or you can snap it up for $1,000 as a Buy it Now price. I expect he’ll get a lot more and/or someone will just buy it outright to avoid missing out.

If you want it, the link you need is below:

Master Replicas Star Wars ROTJ Force FX Green Luke Skywalker LightsaberL

If you’re looking for a replica of Luke Skywalker’s green Force FX lightsaber from Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi then you’ve really got two choices: the model produced by Hasbro which I posted here or the rarer Master Replicas version.

In terms of a comparison each version has their fan, mostly for very slight reasons. Perhaps most notably Hasbro’s version is the cheaper of the two and hence arguably provides the best replica for your money, while Master Replicas’ version will cost you more but is a little higher in production quality. 

Master Replicas also produced theirs first (and ceased production while Hasbro continue to produce theirs). If you can find one of the first release models by Master Replicas (referred to as version 1) you’ll find them to be quite pricey as they are now pretty much a rare collector’s item that is hard to find but highly sought after. 

As I write this post there is one of the original Master Replicas version 1’s available brand new on Ebay.

Here are the features of the one that’s available:

  • First release of a Master Replicas ROTJ Green Luke Skywalker ROTJ Lightsaber
  • Rare collectors item  
  • Stury glowing bright green polycarbonate blade (permanently attached to the hilt)
  • Authentic sound effects in-built (realistic power-up, power-down, idel, clash effects driven by motion sensors)
  • Durable metal hilt feels like a real lightsaber
  • Comes with display stand
  • No more are being made

Obviously these are rare so it’s great that, if you want one, you have your chance right now (while it lasts) to snap up the one that is available. The seller (who is based in the UK) is asking for approx US $1,012 but will consider offers.

This is Master Replica’s limited edition STAR WARS Qui Gon Jinn Lightsaber Prop Replica.

Backstory:

While on assignment to protect Queen Amidala of the Naboo, Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson) engaged the dark warrior, Darth Maul, in an epic duel only to fall in battle. Heartbroken, his padawan, Obi-Wan Kenobi, took up the weapon of his master and used it to defeat the evil Sith Lord.

Exactingly copied from surviving film props stored in the Lucasfilm archive, this awesome 1:1 scale Lightsaber replica reveals never before seen details and features:

  • Machined aluminum and brass parts
  • Anodized black details
  • Anodized red female knurled button Intricate pommel detailing
  • Museum quality display case with mirrored base and acrylic cover
  • Numbered plaque and certificate of authenticity

In Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, Qui-Gon’s lightsaber was machined by the prop department from aluminum. Resin parts were cast and a rare, red aircraft button was added as decoration. Working directly from surviving props in the Lucasfilm archives, Master Replicas’ engineers have crafted a copy of the hero version of the hilt from machined aluminum, featuring rich black anodized parts, never before seen details, and a red anodized button complete with the rare knurl of the original.

These are a pretty rare commodity these days. I found one new one still available via Amazon and three secondhand ones available via Ebay.

Here’s an awesome deal not to be overlooked.

Sideshow Collectibles have Museum Replica’s prop replica Nick Fury’s Electronic Needle Gun Prop Replica on sale for a whopping 50% discount.

I know this to be true because I’ve previously posted about the Needle Gun here and included the original price of $199.99. You can get it for $99.99!

This prop replica of the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Needle Gun is made from aluminium and includes special effects light and sound features.

It also comes complete with a polished hardwood display case with custom etched glass top.

Backstory (via Sideshow Collectibles)

S.H.I.E.L.D. (Supreme Headquarters International Espionage Law-enforcement Division) was formed in the 1960’s to counter the technological world threat posed by the radical organization, HYDRA. In the late 90’s, due to the mounting danger of terrorism worldwide, the organization decided to change the acronym of the agency to (Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistics Directorate). Nick Fury and his team of super agents battle these forces and keep the peace throughout the free world.

The Nick Fury Electronic Needle Gun Prop Replica is pretty damn cool but at $99.99 it’s a pure bargain.

Yeah yeah, these don’t fit any of my movie weapon replica categories perfectly (in fact, I don’t really have a category set up for this kind of a weapon replica modification), but that’s ok, they’re still frakkin cool so I have to post about them. I mean, who in their right mind wouldn’t want a Lightsaber lamp?

There’s two Lightsaber lamps coming in April 2012 from Master Replicas: a Darth Vader Lightsaber lamp and an Anakin Skywalker Lightsaber lamp.

Both look awesome and at $64.99 they’re pretty affordable too. 

Just how awesome would it be to light up your room with the ambient light of a lightsaber.

The lamp is designed to use up to a 100 watt bulb.

Measures 26 inches tall, overall. US 120 volts 60Hz only.
