    I am awaiting the shipment for the last of the soakers which should hopefully be arriving to me within the next week or so. I will be able to get everyone shipping quotes when they arrive.

    These are proving to be more popular than I ever imagined and I'm so excited to supply everyone with them.

    Hey everyone!

    The good news is that the soakers have arrived much sooner than I anticipated. The bad news is that I won't be able to get quotes to people until next week. Unfortunately we had a death in the family and my time has been limited at best.

    Thank you all for your patience and understanding!

    So I had a recent inquiry into whether or not these are original parts. Given that I have been as transparent as possible I agree that this is a valid question. This was my response for anyone else who is curious.

    As far as their origins I don't have any product boxes or instructions or anything like that but the place I purchased them from bought them wholesale from a business who was liquidating the last of their stock and from what I was told these are originals. The other thing is that with this last batch some of them are a bit dirty and have scuffs from storage, a bit more than the first batches I purchased which would indicate that they have been sitting in storage and are not newly made. I have searched high and low and I have not been able to source these from anywhere else which is why I purchased the last of their stock to ensure that everyone who wanted this part could get one. It is a RARE opportunity which I am privileged to have considering how difficult it is getting to source original parts for Original Trilogy props.

    As far as my research has led me to believe these are no longer manufactured by Melnor because they have a new design for this product which can be seen here:

    All PM's have been replied to.

    I will be shipping out paid orders either tomorrow or Monday depending on my weekend.

    Just an FYI I have nearly 500 of these available so if you are even considering stocking up, this is definitely the time to do it.

    PLEASE NOTE: ONCE THESE ARE GONE, THEY ARE GONE FOR GOOD AND I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO GET ANY MORE!

    Melnor has remodeled this item and these soakers I am selling are the original version which is no longer made and I have the last of my suppliers stock. These are old (new) stock.

    Lol. True. I love my plants! ;)

    I just wanted to keep these in the prop and costume community and considering Melnor has updated their design I didn't feel as though I was robbing any gardeners of the opportunity for this product if there was a newer "better" model available from Melnor.

    Plus how often do we as prop builders get an opportunity to source original parts like this? It's so rare these days especially with the parts from the original films it's getting harder and harder to source these pieces 40 plus years on, many of which where old when the films were made (graflex etc.) This way anyone who wants one can get one now and there will be no competition with non prop consumers. lol

    I have a ton of these left if people are interested!

    Also, I am considering selling off my own personal collection of Vibro Axe pieces (for my own personal build). Would anyone be interested in this if I were to put it up for sale?

    It would include a (gutted) Supermax by Gillette, Supermax cord - for grip detail, (hollowed) Melnor soaker, (cut) Han Blaster Grill, 3/4 sched. (approx 1 inch OD PVC) 5 feet long, 2 qty. 3/4 O.D. Aluminum Tubes (to slide into the PVC pipe to prevent warping), Zorg cast resin parts set - Yamaha part, big screw, hose adaptor tip, Midland Hardware Hose tip, 1/4 inch x 36 inch aluminum rod for blade detail greeblie, aluminum Vader Rod (not 100% accurate but very, very close), and Plastic Butcher Knife for axe blade base. Basically it's almost everything you will need to build a Vibro Axe prop.

    If I do sell off this off it will NOT be parted out and I will sell this ONLY within the Continental U.S. to cut down on shipping costs. The 5 ft PVC pipe alone is going to bring the cost of shipping up so please consider this if you are interested in this.

    As much as I want to build this prop for myself I have to sell off a number of pieces and this may be one of them.

    Thanks so much to everyone who has purchased from me and I want to see pictures of your Vibro axes!!

    So I am reaching out to my fellow Vibro Axe fans once again to gauge interest in these soakers. I may be able to work on the price if the interest is there. These are likely the last ones in the wild so to speak so once they are gone, that's it and I won't be trying to source any more after that either.

    I'm actually in the planning stages to finish off my own personal costumes and then who knows from there? I've been doing this for 20 years this year and after I'm done with my own stuff (barring a handful of pieces for some loyal customers) I am likely going on hiatus from costuming/ props to focus on other things.

    So if you're even considering getting some of these soakers please comment on this thread. I need to clear space in my workshop and I am eager to move some things out.

    Thanks!
