Master Replicas Rebel Snowspeeder

Master Replicas has another great replica for fans to enjoy! The Rebel Snowspeeder—the ultra-fast, ultra-versatile flying vehicle used by Luke Skywalker to bring down the Imperial AT-ATs in the battle of Hoth—is a ¾ scale replica of the original studio model used in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.

Like the original, the snowspeeder is cast from high quality cast resin with many of the fine details reproduced from injection molded plastic. The main guns were created from aluminum tubing.

Our prop replica matches Luke’s own speeder—the “Rogue One”—down to every detail, including the distinctive gray markings plus the weathering and battle damage endured in the inhospitably frigid Hoth environment.

To guarantee that your snowspeeder replica is one of a kind, Master Replicas is offering customization of this extraordinary collectible. When you order your snowspeeder replica directly from Master Replicas, we will stamp your unique serial number on your collectible.

Comes with a custom display case, numbered plaque, and certificate of authenticity.

Includes an exclusively designed expanded prop story and snowspeeder screen shot.

Limited Edition – 1,500

Approximate model dimensions: 16” L x 14” W x 4” H; Display measures approximately 19” L x 18” W x 11” H

Shipping weight for the snowspeeder replica and display is approximately 35 pounds.

50% deposit is required on all orders. The remaining 50%, plus S&H, will be charged to the customers credit card when the product ships.

For Non-Members of the Collectors Society, purchase includes a one-year membership in the Collectors Society.

Collectors Society Members will receive double MR Reward points: 1,198 total.

Some assembly required.

Also available: AT-AT Imperial Walker, Leia Blaster SE, Leia Blaster LE, Rebel Blaster, Stormtrooper Blaster.

Dennis Muren Chat Tomorrow

The Official Star Wars Site has announced another Hyperspace chat for tomorrow! Continuing the series of popular online chats, Hyperspace welcomes Dennis Muren. As the original Star Wars Trilogy returns to the spotlight with its long-awaited release on DVD on September 21, Hyperspace members are invited to an online chat with one of the talented people that made the amazing visuals of those landmark films a reality.

Dennis Muren is the Senior Visual Effects Supervisor at Industrial Light & Magic. A recipient of eight Academy Awards, Muren was on the forefront of the digital revolution that changed the art of visual effects in the early 1990s. One of the first members of ILM, Muren worked as a cameraman on the very first Star Wars film, and then served as Visual Effects Director of Photography for The Empire Strikes Back. For Return of the Jedi, Muren served as Visual Effects Supervisor, a role he would share with other supervisors for Episodes I and II of the prequel trilogy.

His other Visual Effects Supervisor credits include Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial, The Abyss, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Jurassic Park, A.I. Artificial Intelligence and The Hulk.

Dennis Muren will be online this Friday, September 10 at 2:30 p.m. U.S. Pacific time (5:30 p.m. U.S. Eastern time) for a Hyperspace chat. Please note that last minute schedule changes may happen, and that although hundreds of questions are often submitted, not all can be answered.

Empire of Dreams on TV

Aurore sent me an e-mail with some great news! Be sure to read on.

"Hey, I just saw on TV a commercial for Empire of Dreams that is in the DVD set. A&E will be showing it Sunday September 12 at 8/7 central PM. I'm going to watch it since the DVDs comes out a little over a week after that. Thought I'll tell you so you can spread the word."

Thanks for the great report Aurore! Be sure to keep you eyes (and VCR's) peeled for this documentary.
