Good question. There were many stunt sabers used during the production of EP1, but apparently there may only have been one or two hero sabers for each design. My guess is this is based on the main hero saber.Originally posted by SithLord@Feb 3 2006, 12:21 AM
I'm curious how many different versions of the Qui-Gon saber there were? Which version was this based on?
Absolutely. I can't wait for this. Hands down my favorite saber. Actually looks like you could hold it in a real fight. And Qui-gon epitomizes the Jedi in my opinion.Originally posted by Sporak@Feb 3 2006, 02:36 AM
I'm excited about the CE version...it's about time they did this one.
It's my favorite of the prequel sabers...
Best saber, best character...
I have a feeling that there will be plenty of people selling these on ebay with worldwide shipping.Originally posted by nae1000@Feb 3 2006, 08:51 AM
i think this is a great idea from MR, i have a couple of force fx sabers and a couple of EL's, i like that for whatever the price they did something, i've never been able to justify paying so much for static MR hilts. now with the CE line (if, and by jove they better keep it under force fx price) i can collect some hilts. good start with the qui gon, best jedi ever. and best hilt, i'll be getting me one of those..
so, for us over the pond- where would be best to buy one of these CE's as i know of no 'official' MR dealers in the UK (except maybe forbidden planet-but they'd charge EE price for it)
For some resin and a metal sleeve I surely hope not ... if that is the price it would seem to me, it based on them riding the coat tails of thier liscence. Because the value is definately not in the materials used.Originally posted by defyitall@Feb 3 2006, 02:07 PM
And they sent out emails with the MSRP for the CE Qui Gon: $199.
Not too happy with that myself.

I hope this line fails. I don't want them rereleasing everything. That would suck.
