Movie prop replica creator Master Replicas is among our favorites for finding replica storm trooper blasters or rifles along with helmets of characters like Wedge Antilles. They also have helmets of Bobba Fett and Storm troopers. One problem with MR is that they recently announced that they will no longer renew their relationship and license with Lucas film. This means that in 2008 they will no longer be selling their Star wars collectible toys.

You can’t find anything better than what he makes. If you take a licensed version of light sabers from Lucas film and put it up against a Parksaber you’ll always prefer the Park’s version. Because of the nature of this toy, light saber, it makes our best kept Star Wars collectible secret.
