This week I'm bringing you the Master Replica SE Boba Fett Blaster. This weapon of destruction is heavy! This monster blaster weighs in at a stunning 10.7 lbs (4.85 kg).  If you carry this around as part of your costume for an all-day event your arm is sure to be sore. With an item this heavy, it seems better to display the blaster in the included acrylic case most of the time.

 

 

This is an SE piece from Master Replicas which means it comes with a small plaque signed by Jeremy Bulloch who played Boba Fett. This blaster is complete with no pieces missing. The outer mailer box does have some wear, but other than that this item is in great condition. Master Replica created 1,000 of these blasters and this is piece #682.  It also has the COA that will verify this item is truly unique!

 
 

As I've said before and will say again, Master Replica is my favorite manufacturer of Star Wars collectibles. The detail that they've put into the blaster is just phenomenal. I especially like how they included the rusty/damaged finish when constructing this blaster. Master Replica also used the best materials with this blaster, including:

*Machined aluminum and brass parts
*Diecast metal construction
*Injection molded plastic components
*Wooden handles






Boba Fett remains one of the most popular characters in Star Wars despite his limited screen time in the films. If you are a Boba Fett collector this blaster is certainly a must have item!


Check in next week where I will be discussing the finer points of the Hasbro FX Kylo Ren lightsaber.

"Force Friday" (or "Rogue Friday") is finally here and we've just released a bunch of the coolest figures in the galaxy!  The team here at Brian’s Toys has been working hard to have the best selection of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story toys ready to ship on this glorious day.  Last "Force Friday" many online companies were unable to get products due to manufacturing issues with Hasbro. This year though, we are proud to have almost all of the new items in stock! See below for a few of my favorite.


 

 

My favorite so far is the Black Series 6 inch Wave 7. This assortment includes: K-2SO, Captain Cassian Andor, Imperial Death Trooper, Sergeant Jyn Erso, Rey & BB-8, and Kylo Ren. As of now, we know that 4 of these characters should make an appearance in the upcoming movie: K-2SO, Captain Cassian Andor, Death Trooper, and Jyn Erso. The sleek packaging, full range of articulation, and the central role of these characters in Rogue One make them highly desirable for Star Wars collectors. I believe this wave’s collectability value could be higher than the other items mainly due to the packaging.

 
After 13 hours on the market, the most popular items are the 3.75 inch Wave 2 Rogue One figures. This wave includes Chirrut Imwe, Director Krennic, Captain Cassian, Darth Vader, Rey, Leia Organa, Jyn Erso, and the Imperial Stormtrooper.  These 3.75 inch figures are a little less expensive so you can buy 2, 1 to keep in the package and the other to wage your own intergalactic battles!


Be sure to check in often at brianstoys.com as we are continue receiving the hottest Rogue One items. 

Next week I'll be discussing our Master Replica Signature Edition Boba Fett Blaster. As I have stated before, Master Replicas are always my favorite type of items and this is one to definitely one you won't want to miss.

This week’s featured item is the twelve inch Chewbacca in an extremely rare Empire Strikes Back box. Because this item's value primarily comes from its unusual packaging, you could almost throw the Chewbacca figure in the garbage and the box alone would retain the item's entire value!

 

 

It's unclear, even to collecting experts, whether this Chewbacca was ever commercially released, with many claiming that the only reason any haver appeared on the market is they slipped out  the back door of Kenner or were a toy salesperson’s sample. Regardless, this limited production makes this piece extremely tough to find.  

 
 

While the ESB box is not factory sealed, it did receive a grade of C-6 and includes the original cardboard inserts.  The item inside is complete and received the high grade of C-9 for condition. There were four other twelve inch figures that were packaged with the ESB logo box: Darth Vader, Stormtrooper, Boba Fett and IG-88.  Like the Chewbacca, the Darth Vader and Stormtrooper were also released in very small numbers with the ESB logo. 

Next week I'll discuss the newest toys being released by Hasbro in connection with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Force Friday's toy revealing should bring out some must-have items for collectors! Visit brianstoys.com on September 30th at midnight to be one of the first to purchase the new Rogue One items.

This week’s featured item is the Die Cast Imperial Cruiser. This isn’t just your average Die Cast Imperial Cruiser; this particular piece has the special offers that make this Cruiser extremely unique. Given an overall grade of 75 by DCA (Die-Cast Authority), this cruiser shows minor signs of wear.

These 3 special offers are flashy and will help this Cruiser pop in your collection!

 

 

 

Special offers were put on various vintage Kenner items to appeal to department stores from 1978-82. All of the special offers were very limited in release. The special offer states “Complete with Outpost Command Battle Scene”. The fact that this Imperial Cruiser is still sealed with a special offer is astounding. How could you not open up this beauty and cruise it through the battle scene?

 
 

A quick search on eBay shows very few of these special offer vintage items on the market, making this a hot ticket item!

 

Next week I'll show you know about our twelve inch Chewbacca action figure in a rare Empire Strikes Back box.

This week’s featured item is the beautifully detailed Signature Edition Millennium Falcon from Master Replicas. We're very excited to have this extremely rare item in-stock! In fact, this is the first time we've ever had the signature edition of this Millennium Falcon.

 

 

 

 

I am always happy to get in Master Replica pieces because I think they are the best collectibles for display, provide an exact replica of the item seen in the movie, and are made of high quality resin.  Master Replica definitely has not disappointed in creating this stunning Millennium Falcon.  One thing to keep in mind is that this Millennium Falcon is HUGE, measuring 32” x 24” x 6”.  With only 500 individual pieces made, these items are difficult to get your hands on.  It's also known that Harrison Ford did not often sign autographs at Star Wars events, so his signature makes these pieces even more valuable to own!

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This piece does come with a universal AC power adapter (USA plug) that lights up the headlights, cockpit detail, and engine effect.   Click here for an in depth video review of the Master Replica SE Millennium Falcon.

 

Check back next week when I will let you know about our AFA graded Boxed Die Cast Imperial Cruiser With Special Offer Decal.
