I just ordered my first lightsaber from MR, the Luke Ep. IV EE. I considered ordering 2 due to the demand on this one, but I just can't swing that right now with all the stuff coming in July. Who else ordered one? I ordered almost immediately after it went up, so mine should ship soon with a low #.:banana

Got mine! :banana And btw the website worked great, no problems. This is also my first full sized saber (I have minis, and FX) so I am really looking forward to it. :rock

Holy crap!!!

Is this gone already? It's not showing up on the site for me. Damn I should have ordered 2. This piece will be going for $1000+ on Ebay EASILY.


Edit: MR confirms all sold in 14 minutes!!!!!!! Holy @)()@*# that has got to be some sort of record.

WOW, that was fast!!!!!!!!!!! :thud I think I should have grabbed two as well. Elwood, did you see that the first wave ships now and then the second after the 4th? It won't be long!

elwood49
06-28-2005, 08:28 AM
OK, I'm thinking that was just Wave 1 that sold out. I guess we'll see Wave 2 shortly. I may buy another if that is the case.

No it is not the first wave that sold out. They would not have broken them up for pre-sale like that. Trust me they are all gone. The first wave sold out in only 6 minutes. The rest in 14. Those who got one be greatfull.

But I had 2 in my cart and took one out.:lol

And those who got two, try hard not to scalp em too high! :rollin J/K, I actually in hindsight should have bought two. :thwak

I'll be sure to order 2 with the Obi-Wan EE coming later this year. I actually couldn't afford to order 2 today anyway, since I always use my debit card and not my credit card on these orders. It helps me limit myself if I only spend money that I actually have in my account.:lol

LOTR Fan
06-28-2005, 08:41 AM
Debit what? :lol Actually cheers to you, you fiscally responsible collector you! :clap

BTW - do you know an ETA for the Obi Wan?

RichardW
06-28-2005, 08:53 AM
I wouldn't have bought one anyway, but was this announced in another newsletter that I didn't get? :dunno

Richard, this was listed at the bottom of the page when you signed up for the Collector's Society, or at least that is where I saw it.

Ordered 2 :rock

Wave 1 (Ed. # 1-300) sold out in 6 minutes. The entire run od 1,000 pcs. was sold out in 14 minutes. This was confirmed by the MR VIP at rebelscum.

I may be wrong but I don't recall ANY collectible selling that fast. :google

I can relate to this, as I have just updated all my SSC orders with a debit card. The credit card's alive...and in perfect hibernation. :lol

Damn it sold out FAST.

i refuse to order one of the EE sabers from them. i already have the LE lightsaber and its great. but i hate the fact that they keep releasing sabers just to make another buck. this is the second one that they've done and the first one was the Luke ROTJ saber which was super rare to begin with becaus it was their first star wars prop. :thwak

I just would of resold it if I would got it! :lol :bang

To buy and sell is not such a bad idea, but to each their own Vik. BTW I relate in a way with you, it reminds me of the UC LE Anduril fiasco. :rolleyes

Guys check your account. My Luke EE is now showing as shipped!!! Hopefully that means I got in on Wave 1. This piece is going to be absolutely amazing!!

I picked up 2 of them, the 2nd one is meant to be traded for the Luke: ROTJ EE that had been released. I believe I have another person to complete the trade with, so hopefully it will go thru.

I am a bit disgruntled, as I am a MR collector's club member,
and I received no notice whatsoever about this LE lightsaber.

What is the point if they don't let me know about exclusives. :bang :fireevil

I got one.

There is no other version of this, so one could not already own a LE from MR of the LUKE ANH Saber.

....and they sen tout a butt load of notices about this saber and it's order date! They also are frequent visitors of many forums and it was actually quite difficult to not know about this saber being released!

The fact that all 1,000 pieces sold out in 14 minutes can attest to that!

big daddy kel
06-29-2005, 01:53 AM
Is this just a MR website only item or will other online stores have the Luke saber too?

14 minutes must be a record :eek

larbob

yes I got one.

Oxbeard
06-29-2005, 08:30 AM
BDK, no this was a site exclusive. The entire 1000ES sold out in the 14 min that has been mentioned. Now you'll have to find a realy good friend who got one or head over to eBay with a small fortune.

RichardW
06-29-2005, 09:19 AM

I don't remember anyone on this forum mentioning it until the day it went on sale. :dunno

My account also shows shipped!!!!! :ted

Hopefully those "collectors" on eBay don't get the $800-$1000 they're asking for this. :rolleyes

Actually several of those auctions are members from this board.:lol

It's not a big deal to me, though. I think it is perfectly fine to buy things to make a profit. It helps pay for these expensive pieces.

LOTR Fan

No problems here either, I was saying that in hindsight I should have ordered two as well. :wave I was just more pointing out the number of them on "you know where" :google

Like I said if I would of ordered one I would of probley sold it.

14 mins for this one i cant wait to see what EP1 obi saber ELITE will sell for and how fast.

Im def jumping on this one...:banana

06-30-2005, 12:41 AM
Finally received an email from my dealer friend in the US that... HE GOT ME ONE!!!! WOO-HOO! 14 mins... Thought i'd miss out for sure... :banana :banana :banana

Could have bought one myself - I'm a CS member and all - but with the VAT and customs slapped on this thing it'd cost a fortune. This way my friend can declare it as a gift with a lower value so *fingers crossed* it works out cheaper. :p

Man, can't wait to see this in the flesh! Gonna look great next to my 1/4 Ex. Luke... if I get one... (come on wait list, don't let me down!).

Yeah. the Obi TPM EE is gonna be HOT! >:

Has anyone got any links about the Obi-Wan EE? That's one I might have to look into . . .

ShelobsPrey
06-30-2005, 03:37 AM
No pics/details as yet regarding the Obi TPM EE, only that it's definitely coming (prob October) and, like the others, it will be a Collector's Society exclusive.

Most likely it'll have a slightly larger edition size than the Luke ANH EE - I'd say 1,200. Cost? $525 again I reckon. :dance

jaffakitkat
06-30-2005, 03:52 AM
Thanks! I'm now making a mental note to actually join the CS, like I've been putting off doing. Although just as well really, I might have felt compelled to buy the Luke EE, and I so can't afford it this month. My credit card is already feeling the Sideshow burn. :)

OK, I got my saber on Friday, but I was on vacation, so I'll post my thoughts on it now (Monday) when I open it ...

Upon opening the box...HOLY CRAP!! I got #0006/1000! I must have been one of the very first to order. This piece is HEAVY!! I still will probably put it on Ebay later this year along with my Dewback in order to fund my AT-AT.

A quick question for those who bought this: How do you get the sticky stuff from the "Made in China" sticker to come off? I guess I'll have to buy some of that goo-gone.

RichardW
07-04-2005, 09:35 AM
You'll get some extra money having #6 for all those low-number freaks out there. :lol
