    Check out the images of the McQuarrie Vader helmet and the Ahsoka saber. The Vader helmet makes me....

    Who's ordering the Stormie helm tomorrow?

    Looks pretty cool. I'd love to have some of these things or things like this that MR did but room is basically done and saving money for other things.

    It's the McQuarrie Conceptual Darth Vader. Something I doubt MR would've ever attempted.

    Ahsoka lightsaber replica? Who would buy a 1:1 prop based on a nobody CG character from the Clone Wars?

    Not even the SIGNED Mara Jade did that well. I don't see the target market for this Clone Wars movie having the disposable income nor the interest in a $400 static saber. eFX better be careful here, it could be a costly blunder.

    I am not sure where I got the impression. But I did get the impression that efx was going to be doing full costumes. I am a little disappointed. I would love to get a full set of Stormtrooper armor that is officially licensed. I also thought they were going to be doing thinks like Jedi outfits. I seem to remember seeing Obi-Wan's cloths when the announcement came out about the company starting up.

    I hope these things eventually happen.

    Master Replicas was the company you're thinking of, Darth Cruel. They even had prototypes on display a year or two back.

    As for the Ahsoka lightsaber, do we even know the pricing tiers of their lightsabers yet? It may be cheaper than MR, opening up the market more. Considering their first product hasn't even gone up for order yet, I think it's a bit pre-mature to start predicting their success or failure.

    What we can say for certain is that eFX is attempting to expand the boundaries of what MR did: lightsabers with "real" internal mechanisms, Studio Scale helmets based on concept art, EU lightsabers, etc.
