We usually send out the first of the direct orders first before we send to retailers. I don't think this time will be any different. There is an exception however. Sometimes we send products directly from Asia to our international distributors because it is just easier to do that then send them all the way here and back out again.

You mentioned the Falcons shipping in waves starting Nov./Dec. - can you shed some light on how the waves will be prioritized? Will dealers be getting their orders filled as well or will it primarily be CS members first? Thanks.

Hi DarthChuckMc,

Currently the StormTrooper is scheduled to start shipping in November and the Boba Fett mini in December.

Hi Amy!

I was hoping you could give us "mini" collectors an update on shipping times for the Stormtrooper & Boba Fett blasters, and the status of the Qui-Gon mini.
Any other exciting news you can share would be great!
Thanks,
Chuck Mc

thanks

Amy -

1) Have you determined the final (displayed) dimensions for the Falcon and/or Enterprise? I'm trying to look for display possibilities, and need to know exactly how much space they'll be taking up.

2) When the Falcon was first announced, Bryan mentioned a possible acryllic cover that would become available at a later date. Any news on that?

3) In the pictures that we saw of the Enterprise prototype (from SDCC, I think...), the rod holding it up looked pretty long. From a dimensions point of view, it adds a lot of height to the piece. Was this necessary for stability, or was it just arbitrarily made that tall?

Thanks again!
Matt

Amy,

I noticed that the international shipping costs have been reduced significantly (e.g. $52 for a helmet, $24 for a lightsaber, shipped to the netherlands).

What's the cause of this change? In the beginning DHL shipping was also around $150 - $200.

I guess you should make an anouncement about the change, I didn't even bother to look at the MR site anymore because of the high shipping costs.

I don't really know why the price is different now. I will have to check with our operations department next week. It is good news though!

Hi Amy,

First, what the status on the .45 Qui-Gon saber ?

Second, you already mentioned, the items from the Fall Toy Fair Flyers are NOT set in stone yet. But if the Mundi and Mara Jade saber make it for next year, will there be .45 versions again ?

Anything seen on the sales sheets from the fall Toy Fair is not guaranteed to be released. So Gree may or may not even happen.

I suspect you will address this in the shock trooper thread in the MR forum,
but anyway - can you explain why the new shock trooper helmets have
decals? Bryan said that the new helmets would have painted lines.

Hi Yodasan,

I have addressed this in the shocktrooper thread. I am unfortunately not available 24 a days to come in and post so sometimes it takes me a little while to get back to your questions. I apologize for the delay.

Amy,

1. Will the Falcon SS have any type of stickers on it?

2. Is the Ywing sold out? Will the production size still be 1000 pieces?

3. Any word on the Falcon display top? MR mentioned that it was working on an option to buy one some time ago.

Thanks!

Maybe we're not drinking the same Kool-Aid, but I just don't see how a giant prop that looks like Harrison Ford was sucked into a big bar of chocolate is "the greatest of ALL Star Wars props". Luke's ANH saber....Vader's helmet....Falcon....THOSE are the greatest of all Star Wars props.

Amy - two questions.

When will MR announce the edition size for the LE Vader Helmet?

When will the second plaque for the Luke EP IV LE be sent out?

Thank-you!

Didn't the cockpit look like it had decals/stickers? Side comment, I thought I remember reading/seeing that the cockpit is going to light up. Does anyone recall hearing/seeing the same?

Having seen the actual model first hand at SDCC this year, the cockpit is in fact lit. The cockpit is very nicely detailed in 3D objects while the instrumentation along the back bulkhead is in fact a backlit transparency which features the lit equipment. It looks quite good under close scrutiny, and I’m sure is an exact replica of the actual construction of the shooting prop.

Those have been (being) done. Carbonite Han is the greatest of all Sw props -sorry it just is. I'd bet on a sellout of MR offered it.

Question: What is the airspeed velocity of an unlaiden swallow?

Answer: That depends, are you referring to the African or European Swallow?
