As the topic said, I am able to order a Qui Gonn mini and Full Darth Maul mini (both Collector Society hilts) for 176USD (600MYR). DO you guys think it's a good deal? I could buy a Yoda for 100MYR less instead of getting these. And I already have a battle damaged half maul... what do you think??

It's a Lot for Minis, even if it is a Quigon and Full Maul.

I'd hope that includes shipping to your country and covers the import tax etc...
I've seen full Maul minis go for around $30-40 USD so do consider that ;)

Have you joined the Master Replicas Collectors Society?
then you'd have a Quigon coming to you.


Aslo... I don't think the Quigon is out yet from the CS kits

The shop will order everything and it's cash and carry here. Where can i get full maul minis for 30-40USD?

i know what you mean, with that price, I could get FOUR minis (150myr each). It's still definitely more than retail but I suppose the extra charges will be used to cover the shipping costs and for the shop to pay its rent...

I know of a local store here in Jakarta that sells minis at exactly USD$ 50 each. Cash and carry. Uhmm.. CredCards are allowed as well.  :D

Note that MANY people over on the Rebelscum Forums have already stated that they don't want to keep their Qui-Gon minis when they come in (which will be soon...I just got my "shipping May 18th" notice) and that they will offer them up on the RS forums. I'd expect something around 50$ shipped for the Qui-Gons.

Thanks.. maybe I should consider joining RS for this...

Edit:...

I just went to the shop and pre-ordered the Qui-Gonn mini. I had 90MYR deposited from last year so I'm only paying 210MYR. I'll post some shots when it comes...  ;D

UPDATE. I just got a call in today saying the Qui Gon arrived, and instead of the original 300MYR price tag, I got it for 160MYR! it's still priced higher than the usual mini but heck, that's almost 50% off the original quoted price.

I am so happy. My collection consisting of 1-hilt per Star Wars character is now complete! Check out the mini-Qui Gonn:

The Qui-gon is such an underrated lightsaber hilt.

Nice score on getting it for half off.

Thanks Silverspyder, I'm glad I got it half-off. It sure made my day!

To be honest I didn't think much of the Qui gonn saber. I just wanted it to complete my collection. BUT once I got hold of it and held it in my hands... I really like this saber.
