Great Review master yoda!!I've preordered mine!!That saber looked awesome!!BTY Did they tell you anything on your job maybe there or not? DaJoQuim
Thank you :) And I'm waiting for the Designer to get back from japan to talk with Him about the position
and I'm talking about other areas I would be of use to them as well.
I've shown them some BIG Ideas and will be going back there as soon as I can to talk more about it but
I need to finish a few things to bring back with me first so, if it is my destiny... I will do what I must ;)
what they need are new product lines. (not just new products)
the LE line is near the end of its possibilites, because all the props from the main characters have already been done.
they're talking about 'EU' props and 'Jedi council' sabers (etc) because thats all there is left to make.
meanwhile the CE line was cancelled because that upset a bunch of LE owners who wanted their prop to "never be made again" (as promised).
so they're to the point now where 90% of the "main character" props have been done as LE's and can never be made again (not even as CE's)..
..so there's nothing left for the fan to buy anymore.
in a way MR kind of 'blew their load' by making limited editions of 500 units 5 years ago on props that which they promised would "never be made again" and now they can't even release CE versions for legal reasons anymore.
--> I think a great new product line would be "Jedi Utility Belt" complete with a CE-quality saber attached to the belt.
with food capsules and leather belt pouches and everything. the belt could sell for $300
and would provide an excuse to go back and reissue some of the most popular Hero Sabers that guys like me can no longer buy even if we wanted to
MR made limited editions of 500 units 5 years ago and now they can't remake the same props for legal reasons. LOL)
ie: it wouldn't really be a CE "saber prop", per se.... the CE would be an accessory on the "Utility Belt prop"
(so even if its the same saber, technically speaking, its NOT a reissue of the discontinued LE version)
possible variant products : Obiwan and Quigon (TPM); Obiwan,anakin, mace (AOTC); obiwan, anakin (ROTS); Obiwan, Luke, stormtrooper,
Han gunbelt, Chewie bandolier (ANH); Luke, Han (ESB).. etc.. (the luke and han ESB would be gunbelts).
the possibilities are HUGE.
thats the kind of ideas you need to bring to the table.
think BIG, baby! :D yeah!
p.s: did I ever tell you, a few years ago I Emailed MR and told them to make helmets?
--> about 8 months later they announced the first ones. :D I can only hope I had something to do with it.
(just like a dozen other guys who probably sent the same Email LOL) ;P
