Limited Edition Master Replicas Version 2 STAR WARS Return of the Jedi Luke Skywalker Lightsaber Prop Replica

Limited Edition Master Replicas Version 2 STAR WARS Return of the Jedi Luke Skywalker Lightsaber Prop Replica

So I’ve just posted a link to score a rare version 1 Master Replicas Luke Skywalker TOJ Force FX Lightsaber as well as some links to score the later model Hasbro produced version.

But while the Force FX models are arguably collectors pieces rather than toys you may be the type of collector who only wants a serious replica (okay, serious as in seriously like the original screen used prop). If that’s the case then you might take interest in knowing a limited edition Master Replicas version 2 replica of Luke’s lightsaber from Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi is currently up for sale.

The image above is of the one in question and as you can see it is limited number 126 of 1,500. Very cool!

The seller says it’s in basically as-new condition:

It has only been handled with gloves once to put it in its display case. It has been on display in a glass curio cabinet away from sunlight and in a temperature controlled and smoke free home.

This replica lightsaber won’t last long, that’s for sure. As I type this post already 4 offers have been received by the seller – yes, he is accepting offers or you can snap it up for $1,000 as a Buy it Now price. I expect he’ll get a lot more and/or someone will just buy it outright to avoid missing out.

If you’re looking for a replica of Luke Skywalker’s green Force FX lightsaber from Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi then you’ve really got two choices: the model produced by Hasbro which I posted here or the rarer Master Replicas version.

In terms of a comparison each version has their fan, mostly for very slight reasons. Perhaps most notably Hasbro’s version is the cheaper of the two and hence arguably provides the best replica for your money, while Master Replicas’ version will cost you more but is a little higher in production quality. 

Master Replicas also produced theirs first (and ceased production while Hasbro continue to produce theirs). If you can find one of the first release models by Master Replicas (referred to as version 1) you’ll find them to be quite pricey as they are now pretty much a rare collector’s item that is hard to find but highly sought after. 

As I write this post there is one of the original Master Replicas version 1’s available brand new on Ebay.

Here are the features of the one that’s available:

  • First release of a Master Replicas ROTJ Green Luke Skywalker ROTJ Lightsaber
  • Rare collectors item  
  • Stury glowing bright green polycarbonate blade (permanently attached to the hilt)
  • Authentic sound effects in-built (realistic power-up, power-down, idel, clash effects driven by motion sensors)
  • Durable metal hilt feels like a real lightsaber
  • Comes with display stand
  • No more are being made

Obviously these are rare so it’s great that, if you want one, you have your chance right now (while it lasts) to snap up the one that is available. The seller (who is based in the UK) is asking for approx US $1,012 but will consider offers.

If you want one of these be careful. I’ve noticed there’s a lot of what fans are calling “bait and switch” going on from less than reputable sellers. What they do is advertise the Force FX lightsaber, charge you a cheaper price than you’d otherwise pay, and then ship you a standard FX lightsaber or an Ultimate FX lightsaber. The upshot is you think you’re paying less for a Force FX but what you’re actually doing is paying more for a much, much inferior product.

Of course, sometimes sellers put the right price on the product to convince you it is the right product, only to still ship you the wrong product. In some cases they do this deliberately, and perhaps in others the sellers don’t really understand what the difference is between a Force FX, Ultimate FX, or FX model.

The following links lead to actual Force FX lightsabers. If you purchase in any other way from any other dealer I highly recommend taking every precaution you can to ensure you get what you’re after.
