Title: Master Tiin's Mini Collection Gallery UPDATE (7-3-07)
Post by: SAESEE TIIN on March 01, 2006, 04:53:45 PM
I just recieved 3 new cases from MR so its time to post an update.  I deleted every old photo and tried to get a better shot so there would be no glares from the cases.  Hopefully these pics will further some users addictions and cause others to jump on the bandwagon  ;D.

I ended up moving my shelves so here is the new setup of the entire collection.

Next are all the close up shots of the minis.

Wow... I've never seen the Dark Chrome Obi ROTS before...  Didn't know it existed until now.

Nice collection of minis, I'm jealous...
Title: Re: Gallery of my .45 lightsabers
Post by: SAESEE TIIN on March 01, 2006, 05:09:52 PM
Yeah the first time I saw it on ebay I knew I had to have it.  Unfortunately the first one I purchased for $55 the guy never sent it.  I emailed ebay and they could only reinburse me $11  :'(.  He did this to a few other people too and was later banned from ebay.  But luckily I found another one and snagged it for $30.
Title: Re: Gallery of my .45 lightsabers
Post by: Sephiroth on March 01, 2006, 07:00:43 PM
....dark chrome?

I've only gotten lucky enough to get one gold mini, what's this chrome stuff?
Title: Re: Gallery of my .45 lightsabers
Post by: SAESEE TIIN on March 01, 2006, 07:06:50 PM
The chrome sabers are just different versions of the sabers.  5% of the dark chrome series are also chrome.  For instance my dark chrome anakin was  a star wars shop exclusive, yoda was comic con 2005, obi wan was celebration 3, and sidious is  a best buy exclusive.  I think you can still pick up a sidious if you check bestbuy.com
Title: Re: Gallery of my .45 lightsabers
Post by: Sephiroth on March 01, 2006, 07:07:50 PM
How did these originate, though?  Does MR just send some out at random?
Title: Re: Gallery of my .45 lightsabers
Post by: AAYLA SECURA on March 01, 2006, 07:13:34 PM
I like your collection, lazbum. :)

Hopefully I'll get pics of mine up soon.
Title: Re: Gallery of my .45 lightsabers
Post by: SAESEE TIIN on March 01, 2006, 07:15:27 PM
The dark chrome sabers aren't random they are just like any other regular mini saber.  They are just not sold directly by master replicas website, they are usually sold at events or at different online stores like best buy and star wars shop.
Title: Re: Gallery of my .45 lightsabers
Post by: Sephiroth on March 01, 2006, 07:15:52 PM
That Sidious one really does look cool.    I think I'll take you up on that suggestion and check around... ???
Title: Re: Gallery of my .45 lightsabers
Post by: xwingband on March 01, 2006, 07:17:07 PM
The dark chrome ones are mostly convention specials I believe.
Title: Re: Gallery of my .45 lightsabers
Post by: SAESEE TIIN on March 01, 2006, 07:18:19 PM
2 of them are, the yoda and obi.  The sidious and anakin were available online.
Title: Re: Gallery of my .45 lightsabers
Post by: Sephiroth on March 01, 2006, 07:19:34 PM
Yeah?  I'm not hardcore enough to go to a convention or anything.

Title: Re: Gallery of my .45 lightsabers
Post by: Sephiroth on March 01, 2006, 07:20:23 PM
Oh, but I DO still like Star Wars and lightsabers.

Matter of fact, I know so much about lightsabers that I could probably whoop anybody with a real one.    Anyone.
Title: Re: Gallery of my .45 lightsabers
Post by: xwingband on March 01, 2006, 07:23:06 PM
I have coveted having a dark chrome yoda for a while... *drool*
Title: Re: Gallery of my .45 lightsabers
Post by: Sephiroth on March 01, 2006, 07:24:26 PM
Really?

The Yoda one seems the least impressive to me.   Don't know why, but I just don't like that one too much, or the Obi-Wan one either.    Funny that two of my favorite characters have hilts that I dislike...
Title: Re: Gallery of my .45 lightsabers
Post by: SAESEE TIIN on March 01, 2006, 07:28:25 PM
The favorite pieces of my collection so far are my luke rotj pieces.  Hopefully pretty soon I can get my hands on that european exclusive bright chrome sidious.  The picture I took of the yoda and luke don't do the sabers justice, the bright chrome versions are amazing.
Title: Re: Gallery of my .45 lightsabers
Post by: Sephiroth on March 01, 2006, 07:29:31 PM
Well, that's good.

I just like my own mini collection, and the fact that my Vader ROTS is gold just makes it kind of stand out even more..
Title: Re: Gallery of my .45 lightsabers
Post by: xwingband on March 01, 2006, 07:30:18 PM
Yeah, I love Yoda's.  I've been trying to get the parts to make a replica from the real stuff but the parts have been a bugger to find.
Title: Re: Gallery of my .45 lightsabers
Post by: PLO KOON on March 02, 2006, 07:29:21 PM
Nicely done! You know, one of the major reasons I started my mini collection is because of all the photographs posted by mini-owners.  They just look good...

Anyway, I like the 'coloured' versions of the lightsabers more.
Title: Re: Gallery of my .45 lightsabers
Post by: benlurkin on March 02, 2006, 07:37:22 PM
Xwingband, I'm sure you have some good leads on the Yoda, but here is a link of someone trying to do one from RS:

Well, Just got one of my absolute favorites today.  My luke anh is accompanied by a weathered obi and ani aotc.  This is my last empty case so I'm gonna have to pick up some more if I want to add to my collection.  My next sabers will probably be some sith ones like the bright chrome sidious and a regular sidious.

Along with this I completed two more collections which include the sidious ROTS minis and the Obi anh minis

Sidious collection (bright chrome, original, dark chrome)

Currently I'm looking into 3 new gold minis on ebay.  I should also have my anakin collection done as soon as the rots saber shows up sometime next week.  I'll continue to update as more and more collections become complete.

I'm actually running out of room really fast.  What you don't see in the pic is all my fx sabers and maul mini to the left of the mini collection.  I have to buy some vertical saber mounts or even a pool cue rack.  I've been to all the local pool stores and nobody has a decent rack that can support fx sabers.
Title: Re: Gallery of my .45 lightsabers
Post by: SAESEE TIIN on May 03, 2006, 03:08:27 PM
Well i just got an awesome deal on ebay  ;D  For only 100 bucks I managed to get 3 gold plated minis which include a celebration 3 obi-wan kenobi, best buy exclusive sidious, and an ep3 yoda.  Along with these sabers I also get a mini case to display them.  Can't beat the price especially if you are one to buy from MR.  3 minis alone would cost 35 each plus shipping and the case would cost about 25 plus shipping.  Hopefully I'll have some pics in a week or so.

Well I recieved my 3 gold minis today  ;D  They are absolutely perfect.  I'm having trouble finding room for them though  ;D  I think the darth sidious saber is the best looking one out of all the gold minis.  I was thinking about reselling the yoda and sidious ones but now I'm not too sure.  I was thinking of maybe just buying seprate acrylic cases and adding them to the other sidious and yoda sabers.  I am definiely keeping the gold obi-wan because I only need the regular version to have 1 of each color.  I will try post some pics today from my brothers computer.
Title: Re: Gallery of my .45 lightsabers

Well here are the direct pics from the auction.  These are just as good as if I took them myself.  I'll post the pics of the sabers in my room once i get my laptop back.

Well I finally have my Maul mini properly on display with display case and all  ;D  I didn't want to display it until I had some way to protect from the dust in my room.  If anyone else is looking for a display case for their maul mini check a user on ebay called falooksky.  I saw him list one of these a few months ago and asked him if he had anymore in stock.  He managed to get a case in but i was too slow to get the buy it now option.  Luckily he got me another one and I snagged it instantly.  Just mail him and see if he has any in stock.  It was 15 for the case and 15 for shipping if I recall corectly.  Anyway, here is the pic of the newly displayed maul.

Thanks for the ebayer name La-z I was able to get a hold of him and he's sending me a Maul case.  If it's as good as it makes yours look it'll be a great way to round out my mini collection. ;)

Post by: SAESEE TIIN on June 07, 2006, 10:37:14 AM
No prob.  I figured other collectors who used MR's cases would love a case for the maul mini.

It really does fit perfectly in with the collection, I add my recommendation to La-z's and the seller was great too!

I  contacted falooksky about two days ago and asked him about  the display case for the Darth Maul .45 full length saber, and he sent me a reply saying that he would place one case for me with the "buy it now" option. He contacted me few hours ago... he is offering THREE of these cases with the "buy it now" option right now (there were four, but I bought one!  :P).

So, if anyone is interested in one of these display cases, go to ebay and look for falooksy (I don't know if I can post the ebay item number here).  He says that "it might take a while before the next stock comes in", so hurry up before they are gone!  ;D

Post by: SAESEE TIIN on June 16, 2006, 02:03:35 PM

For those that have won gold minis in the MR trivia...how long do they usually take to ship? I'm starting to wonder if mine got lost in the mail....

Did Amy send you tracking or did it just show up? Do you think I should PM Amy if it doesn't show up by Monday? I won it on June 1st so it's been awhile...

When I won last year mine just showed up randomly (but quickly since I'm local).  Wouldn't hurt to drop her a PM since she's been making serious rounds with the trivia, it could just be she forgot to send yours out.

There will be even more posted soon.  I have 4 more minis in the box right on my desk.  I'm just trying to figure out how to re-arrange them all.  As of now I have my Luke ROTJ's together.  I might put one of each from each episode and set them by my sig edition.  I'll just have to mess around a bit.

Well I had to remove the pics of my gold mace, obi, yoda, and sidious sabers because I sold them online to pay for my anh SE edition  :'( .  Its ok though a full scale saber is well worth it  :D

Well I just purchased two new minis from ebay, an obi wan aotc and an obi wan rots.  With these two sabers I should be able to fill up two more cases and get pics posted.  I'm still debating whether or not to sell my anakin and obi ep 3 gold sabers.  I could fill  each with the regular saber, the dark chrome saber, and the gold saber or mix the dark and regular versions with their ep 2 counter parts.  I'll just have to see how it looks.

I just recieved my obi wan ep 3 and ep2 like 10 mins ago and I couldn't wait to get them on display.  Here are the newest pics of some of the sabers.

Obi ep3 sabers (Dark Chrome, regular, gold chase)

I'm quite partial to that one too.  I have to say my favorite though seems to be all the episode 2 sabers.  They all seem so elegant and unique.

Title: Re: Gallery of my .45 lightsabers UPDATE (9-01-06) Check out the new LED lights!
Post by: SAESEE TIIN on September 01, 2006, 02:26:07 PM
Alright, I just recieved these babies in the mail this morning, so I thought I'd post about them since I have never seen anyone else use these.  I was looking on the rebelscum forum for ideas on how to light up my mini saber display.  I found some led's by ikea but the shipping was quite expensive.  So, I decided to check the old ebay.  I saw an auction for an LED light called Dot-It.  Unfortunately shipping was from a different country, so to the next best thing I went.  On google I found a seller on Amazon selling these lights for around $6.30 each.  Plus with an order of over $25 I got free shipping from Amazon.  Here are some pics for those who are interested.

This is the package that the LED comes in:
(https://www.fx-sabers.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi43.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fe396%2Flazbumguy%2Fledpackage.jpg&hash=8ffd8a5ca23c1c076663804c0778b3c6)


The light is actually small enough to fit right in your palm.  The lights turn on by pressing the the clear front down, much like the interior lights in cars.

(https://www.fx-sabers.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi43.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fe396%2Flazbumguy%2Fpalm.jpg&hash=c4870563ff64910259d7b40a841a535e)

This was probably the coolest part.  The back of this LED has an adhesive made by 3M, just peel and stick the thing wherever you want.

(https://www.fx-sabers.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi43.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fe396%2Flazbumguy%2F3mback.jpg&hash=57d828be80015634dcc3c6ae9edd7994)


And here is the results of about 4 minutes of work.  I love how there are no ugly wires to mess with.

(https://www.fx-sabers.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi43.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fe396%2Flazbumguy%2Fledlightcollection.jpg&hash=cc7d9dc740cf3e2c56874aeeea08284e)


All this came to a grand total of $37.74 (I had purchased two more but I'm trying them under some cabinets in the kitchen)  This is definitely a great way to light up a display and extremely easy to do.  If anyone wants to purcahse these just dial up Dot-It on Amazon.

EDIT:  I forgot the mention the light also comes in other colors than black.  It also comes in silver, red, purple, lime green, and orange.  I've also seen some outside of the states that come in a yellow color.

Most excellent!  I've been looking for a nice battery powered light.  Thanks!

BTW where did you get the cabinet?  (Too lazy to check back through the topic)
Title: Re: Gallery of my .45 lightsabers UPDATE (9-01-06) Check out the new LED lights!
Post by: SAESEE TIIN on September 01, 2006, 05:30:18 PM
To answer your question JSS, the lights should last 100 hours on a fresh set of batteries.  When the light dies out simply unscrew the back and replace the batteries with 3 AAA batteries.

To answer your question Sycor, I never did mention where I got my cabinet from in the topic.  I purchased it from Wickes Furniture when I was refurnishing my room.  I got two of the cabinets with a matching desk.  I got these like two years ago though.

That cabinet with the lights in it looks great, lazbum. I really like your set-up. Those lights seem really cool, and at that price they're way affordable. I think I'm going to have to get me a couple. :)

Well technically yes, but a problem arised.  I managed to snag a Mace Windu gold mini on ebay for $40 total.  I bought it from toynk however he refunded the money a week later saying he didn't have the item in stock, which was quite annoying since he continued listing 2 gold mace minis every couple of days.  Well the hunt continues  :D  Just bought a new laptop for school so my mini collection will probably take a halt for a couple of months now.
