X-Wing Studio Scale is Cancelled!!
« on: August 24, 2007, 01:00:39 PM »
"As most of you know, Master Replicas has been working hard to try to get you the replicas you want before our Star Wars license expires at the end of the year. One of the replicas we have been trying to produce is the X-Wing Studio Scale. Unfortunately, due to our time limitations, we are not going to be able to complete this product by the end of the year therefore; we are not going to be able to release it.

We know a lot of you were really looking forward to owning this replica so to make it up to you, we are offering you a $500 off code for our last studio scale we have in stock, the Millennium Falcon. That’s right $500 off! This is the last Star Wars studio scale that Master Replicas will be offering so if you don’t own this awesome replica now is your chance.

Just enter discount code: XWFCN in the promotion code box when you place your order. "


Makes me VERY sad =(

I sensed there was a great disturbance in the Force... as if a million voices cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced :D

To bad this won't see the light of day but I bet the Prototype will go for a bundle on eBay if they let it and the other
prototypes go after all is said and done.

I like the Falcon discount though... $500 off is not a bad deal and if you have a place to display it :)




Let's face it what you people would really want is a Radio controlled Studio Scale X-Wing :D
...but that would be stepping over the line I think :D

What we almost got to own....for less than $999.00
-Opening and closing wings
-Engine lights
-Cockpit LEDs
-A fully done interior based off of the full size c0ckpit used for filming, not the oringal prop's c0ckpit (Which I think is awesome news!)
-A full size mirrored base with an Acrylic cover INCLUDED!
-The most accurate Xwing to date.

I KNEW IT!!! >:( 

So I wonder how long they are gonna delay the Luke Rotj V2 LE now? ::)

I am SO done with MR stuff! As much as I like the Falcon... I DON'T THINK SO!

The Red 5 X-wing SS was going to be the last thing I bought from MR... Kind of a nice "going away" present.

I have wanted a GOOD Xwing model since I was 3 years old, and I have built a few model kits in my time... but this...THIS is the FINAL Straw!!!

Jerry, Amy, it's nothing personal. ;) Nothin' but love for ya guys!

Killing the X-wing is like taking the lightsabers away...Oh wait... nevermind.... >:(

When I read this today on MR's site I thought I turned green for a second and flipped over my entire desk  :D  Such a shame as so many people were looking foward to this. 

Thanks to Darth Nerdold for the sig!

Sad case, but I wouldn't had picked it anyway  :-\. Not much fun to those who wanted to own it, but gladly there's still some other X-Wing replicas out there, other than Master Replicas and those are also well made  ;)

I am sorry guys but this just seems ludicrous to me.  I know collectibles are collectibles but even with the Falcon discount it is still gonna run you $2300.  I have bought cars and boats for less. 

IMO MR is just way over priced.  Sure they make some great products but this is a bit much.  Most of the fans like myself never could have afforded the X-wing anyway.  Would that one have topped 3K?  Most of us can only dream of having these, it would never be a reality.

I agree with your post Tk.  That is why I have mainly stuck to FX sabers, they're the cheapest thing Master Replicas produces.  I would love to get the LE hilts and a couple of studio scale stuff but it's way over priced for my head and I simply can't afford it.  I envy those who can spend the $2-5k on Master Replicas stuff or buy a new item when it comes out.

i agree with TK. the only SS that is worth the price in my mind, is the ATAT model. that thing is incredible

I think that the only Studio Scale that's worth the price is Snowspeeder, since you can get one with around 300-350 $, but AT-AT SS costs more than two times compared to Snowspeeder and that's just too much. AT-AT SS is in the range of total max price for collectable for me and I would really have to consider about it. It's awesome I know, but just too high price. Well, I won't gonna comment about Millennium Falcon SS, since that's just foolish price  ::)
