    I went to the site.
    The calendar shows the 19th and states something is coming.
    Y-Wing perhaps?

    Wasn't that the date the Luke Skywalker ANH LE/SE goes on sale through authorized dealers?

    I got the email too.........and it said specifically a Studio Scale piece...........so I'm betting on the Y-wing too.

    Once again I did not get the email but if they did specifically say SS, then it has to be the Y-Wing as they've said they're not done finalizing the Falcon.

    The Vader's are already in the warehouse and are beginning to ship (or at least people have received emails from MR stating such).

    Yeah, they are referring to "unveiling" whatever the item is. It's gotta be the Y-wing unless they have suprises we haven't already heard about.

    Anyone know the MSRP of the Y-Wing?

    I read it will be "affordable" as it does not have a display case.

    Any ideas?

    My idea would be 449$ to 499$ then :)
    As far as i remember Steve said: "You will all be surprised of the low price...".
    So i hope i am right with my estimation :)

    Is the announcement necessarily Star Wars related?

    All I see is they added the 2006 Collector Society stuff, but that could have been there before, but its new to me.

    That was there as of a few days ago, but after re-checking the calender it looks like they we're going to announce it on the 19th originally. If that's all we get I'm a bit disappointed.

    I heard it was a replica Princess Leia "bun" ANH wig. :p They're going to release the "Leia Trilogy hairstyle" collectible line.

    It looks like they took the Mace mini and sprayed it with testor's dull-cote - a hair on the boring side. Especially if you already have the nicer version of the Mace. A Qui Gon mini would've been tons better. I'd have ordered the kit for that alone.

    What is happening to this company? At the least, even one in bright or black chrome would have been much more interesting.

    It reminds me of their "Jabba-Sized Sale". Turned out to be more "Salacious Crumb-Sized".

    Wasn't there another thread about this, in which the item that MR was scheduled to release today was described as "Studio Scale"?

    Is the 2006 Collector's Society Membership Kit really the big release they were hyping for today? If so, it is a major letdown. :unsure

    Yeah. It wasn't even half-decent.

    More like .45 decent. :p

    MR never said that the 19th was going to be the release of a studio scale, but their newsletter said the next studio scale model was "waiting in the wings". When MR announced they'd have something new on the 19th, people assumed it was the YWing studio scale. And best yet, some people were reading the calendar entry on MR's blog and actually assuming MR would release Bill and Ted replicas (based on the San Dimas High reference) or Lost replicas (based on the numbers replicas).

    I see. Thanks for clearing this up for me.

    I got that message from MR, too. But when I saw the thread in which people were excited about an MR studio scale release on 01/19, I figured they must know something I didn't.

    Looks as if all that anticipation was based on a misunderstanding. :unsure
