I think they should announce these things when they have them in stock and ready to ship....

I totally agree, but unfortunately it will never happen, and it's not just MR.

Boooooooooo. Hisssssssssssssssss. :thumbsdown

I might have bought a CE, but I have no interest in an LE or signature. However, I have no dought that MR will sell the full run of this item with out my business.

I'm surprised they didn't do the ESB, given that they already have the MPP tooling.

A bit expensive for my tastes. Never been a huge fan of this item, but I know many will like it.

i've been wanting a nice heavy metal ee-3, and since a real webley costs WAY more than this, i may well have to get in on this one.

Hmmm...is it time for me to part with my Webley Flare guns?

HECK NO.. I'd take a built up Webley over ANY MR version. I wouldn't even trade my HS Webley with all original parts for an MR version.....Just my personal opinion though as I'll assume the MR will be stellar. But like my Real Sterling E11 I'd take it over an MR....

I too would have thought the ESB would be the weapon of choice. I bet they don't know what those scope blocks are from either ;)

I am hoping that they will have a prototype that I can check out on the 11th for the MR council meeting. I think it is going to be pretty sweet, but it is really quite expensive.

Wow, the price is a little disappointing and even more disappointing is doing away with the CE version for a more expensive SE version. :(

Myself I was going for the CE, cash is tight this year and I'm going to have really watch what I buy. I realize that this will be a large piece but $579 seems a bit much and $679 is way outside the budget.

Yup, was actually considering this but $579 is just too much for my tastes. It's a nice piece but it's not that high on my list.

It looks great, but there's no way I'm ordering direct again. I got my stormtrooper blaster for $400, and now I see it going for less than half that now.

I'd like to see how MR reacts to these comments. I bet it's not what they were hoping for. Ompare these posts to the posts about the Fett helmet. Wrong move to cancel to the CE. There's no way i'm paying that much for this thing.

Edition size was wrong, its now 1000. Would have prefered the ESB version when Boba was cool :)

Hm, they do it again and again and again....
Waaaaay overpriced.
Don't know why they do this after all that complaints about the damaged products in the last time.
They should give something back to earn customers trust again. Instead they don't stop to announce products with nearly ridiculous prices...
579 for a Boba Fett Blaster ?? Even only the ROTJ-Version ??
Sorry that is not my world anymore...
I can't imagine that these will sell well, but maybe it's just me and i am wrong.
