Corgi International Celebrates a Landmark Year for Star Wars Fans with an Incredible Line of Authentic Movie Prop Collectibles from Master Replicas
Jay Cochran - February 17, 2007
It began quietly on the morning of May 25, 1977. An unusual and difficult to market movie, plagued by budget and filming troubles, was released to theatres, where it would likely play for a few weeks and fade into obscurity.
Thirty years later, it’s hard to imagine American popular culture without it.
To mark the 30th Anniversary of this entertainment milestone, Master Replicas is proud unveil a line of authentic prop replicas and collectibles that both celebrates the original trilogy and pays homage to the legacy of the entire Star Wars Saga.
New for 2007, collectors can look forward to…
FORCE FX LIGHTSABERS - The only certified official Lightsaber replicas of the iconic props used in the Star Wars films. For 2007, three new Force FX Lightsabers come on board, joining the Mace Windu, Darth Maul, and Obi-Wan Force FX Lightsabers as part of the Master Replicas’ growing collection. Just in time to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Episode IV: A New Hope, Master Replicas will roll out two Force FX Lightsabers featured in this landmark original film:
Luke Skywalker Episode IV Force FX Lightsaber
Darth Vader Episode IV Force FX Lightsaber
And rounding out the line for 2007 is the highly-anticipated:
Yoda Force FX Lightsaber
As with all of Master Replicas’ Force FX Lightsabers, the three new releases feature:
- The sturdy blade is permanently attached to the hilt
- Durable metal hilt looks and feels like a real Lightsaber
- Features motion sensor controlled sounds: idle, hum, swing, and clash
- Authentic Lightsaber sound effects digitally recorded from the movie
- A bright, glowing blade that ignites with realistic power-up and power-down light effect
STUDIO SCALE REPLICAS – Absolutely incredible limited edition replicas created directly from the models or miniatures used in the actual filming of the Star Wars films Fans have been chomping at the bit to find out what Master Replicas will announce as a follow-up to 2006’s ground-breaking Millennium Falcon Studio Scale Replica. Now, joining the coveted ranks of past Master Replicas releases like the AT-AT Imperial Walker and Rebel Snowspeeder Studio Scales, fans can clear some shelf space for:
- Boba Fett’s Slave One Studio Scale Replica
- Rebel X-Wing, Red 5 Studio Scale Replica
SCALED REPLICAS – or “Minis” as the Collecting Community has affectionately nicknamed them, are highly affordable, completely authentic prop replicas that have been scaled down to a smaller size. For 2007, Master Replicas has taken a new direction with scaled replicas, and turned its attention from the weapons of the Star Wars Universe to some of the iconic helmets. Look forward to Scaled Replica helmets, including:
- Clone Trooper Helmet Scaled Replica
- TIE Fighter Pilot Helmet Scaled Replica
- Stormtrooper Helmet Scaled Replica
- Boba Fett Helmet Scaled Replica
- Luke Skywalker’s X-wing Helmet Scaled Replica
HELMETS – For many Star Wars aficionados, the coolest things in the films aren’t the ships, or the weapons, or even the Imperial Walkers. Nope – for lots of folks, the hands-down winners are those awesome helmets.
Big, bad and bold, Star Wars helmets are the stuff of legends. And now, thanks to Master Replicas, aspiring Stormtroopers and Bounty Hunters alike can share in the magic, with fully beautifully crafted helmet replicas created to exacting standards of accuracy and authenticity. 2007’s Helmet releases include:
- 212th Attack Battalion Helmet Limited Edition
