Review: Star Trek Assault Phaser and Tricorder Video

Star Trek Assualt Phaser

Trekmovie.com has posted an indepth review of Master Replicas’, Star Trek Starfleet Assault phaser:

Master Replicas was the first company to do serious, functional licensed prop replicas from the Star Trek franchise, and their classic original series phaser remains the standard for this type of product—an amazing, all metal reproduction of the original series prop with something like 11 different sound and light settings and all kinds of functionality. All of that was based on research on the actual prop (it did several things which for one reason or another were never demonstrated fully on the show) as well as three years’ worth of episodes that showed it doing all kinds of different things.

To date the Starfleet “Assault Phaser” designed for Star Trek V has appeared Star Trek V and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, and maybe a Voyager and Deep Space Nine episode or two. Nevertheless it’s one of the most popular and cool-looking incarnations of the phaser and Master Replicas announcement of an Assault Phaser at Comic Con a couple of years ago caused excitement among prop collectors.

MR has delivered the goods with this, their third phaser replica (after the classic version and a Next Generation style “Cobra” phaser). Like the original prop, it’s huge—the chunkiest phaser we’ve yet seen in the series. Unlike MR’s classic phaser, the Assault Phaser is made of a mix of materials. The lower end of the removable clip, the upper front and rear protective cowl, the silver barrel and rear heat sink, the setting dial and side mounted cowl and clip releases are metal; the main body and hand grip are made of a hard, durable plastic—the equivalent of high-tech composite materials. Consequently the gun has a nice weight to it but it’s not as unwieldy as an all-metal take on the prop probably would have been.

Now known as Darth Vader, upon the enactment of order 66, his first assignment was to destroy the younglings and the Jedi temple.

Their distinctive blue-marked armor distinguished them apart from the other ranks.

Their skillful marksmanship and coordinated team maneuvers allowed them to trap and mercilessly gun down the Jedi in the temple.

George Lucas Talks Star Wars TV

Friday, September 21st, 2007

george-lucas-blog.jpg

Want to know what George Lucas has in store for his Star Wars television series? Read the interview with Steve Sonsky over at TV Guide.

In Part 1 of TV Guide executive editor Steve Sonsky’s in-depth Q&A with George Lucas, the discussion encompassed the Starz documentary Fog City Mavericks (premiering Monday, Sept. 24, at 9 pm/ET), Lucas’ advice for aspiring filmmakers and why Sean Connery turning down Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull might be a good thing. Here in Part 2, the conversation turns to Lucas’ pair of TV-bound Star Wars projects, the power of the Internet and the television series he was distraught to see go off the air.

TV Guide: Can we talk about the two Star Wars television series you’re working on…?

George Lucas: There’s Clone Wars, and we’re in the middle of that.

TV Guide: Tell us about it.

Lucas: Well it’s basically like Star Wars [in that it] takes place between, obviously, [the films] Episode II [Attack of the Clones] and Episode III [Revenge of the Sith], but it’s the same kind of action. Unfortunately, it doesn’t fall into the realm of what animation [typically] is, which is either adult, kind of off-color humor or kiddie stuff. This is, like Star Wars, sort of in between those two things. It’s a lot of battle stuff, and it’s obviously the Clone Wars, so it’s a war picture. So it’s kind of a PG-13 animated TV series, which is something that has never been done before and obviously doesn’t fit in any of the conventional slots that these things fall into. In that, it’s very different, and I think it’s very exciting. It’s got a very, very sophisticated look to it. It’s very much like the features. We’re still trying to figure out how to put it on the air.

TV Guide: And you’re going to do a hundred episodes?

Lucas: We’re going to do a hundred episodes. I think we’re on [No.] 40 right now. We’ll probably end up with 50 to 60 episodes before we start to put it on the air. We’d like to put it on next fall, in about a year from now, but we’ll see what happens.

TV Guide: Where do you see it living? How do you see this playing? Obviously it doesn’t sound like a Saturday morning cartoon.

Lucas: Right now, we don’t know. It’s out there to people, and people are talking about it, but so far, everybody’s got the same conundrums — “How do we program it? Where does it live? Where can we put something like this?” You know, it has to go after 9 o’clock and it can’t be on a kiddie channel.

TV Guide: So you see it on a more mainstream channel or the Sci Fi Channel or something like that?

Lucas: Well, it’s one of those things. Television is sort of bifurcated up into small niches and unless you fit in one of those niches, no one knows what to do with you. And, of course, I’m always outside the box, so it’s like, “Uh-oh, we don’t have a box for you.” [Laughs] But it’s Star Wars and it’s really good, so I’m sure somehow or another, people will also start thinking outside the box and it will find its home.

TV Guide: What about your Star Wars live-action series for TV?

Lucas: Yes, I’m working on that. We’re just going to start writing it in about a month from now, start doing scripts for it.

TV Guide: And where will that live in the Star Wars continuum relative to Clone Wars and relative to the films?

Lucas: Well, Clone Wars has got all the characters in it — Yoda and Anakin and Obi Wan and the Emperor and all that — so it’s basically the movie. The live-action [series] is not the movie. It’s the Star Wars universe, but it’s characters from the saga who were [previously] minor, and it follows their stories. It’s set between [movie episodes] III and IV, when the Empire has taken over. It’s like Episode IV in that the Emperor and Darth Vader are heard about — people talk about them — but you never see them because it doesn’t take place where they actually are. There are storm troopers and all that, but there are no Jedis. It’s different, but I think it’s very exciting because I get to explore a part of that universe that I haven’t been able to explore. Once you have a saga, it’s got a lot of requirements because it’s about a particular [thing] — in this case, Darth Vader — and so it’s his story from the time he’s 10 to the time he died. You really can’t go off that track because that’s the story. Whereas now, I can make a left turn on 10th Street and go down there and see what’s going on.

Troy Denning has just completed the latest book in the Star Wars series: Star Wars: Legacy of the Force: Inferno.

Synopis:
Luke Skywalker wanted to unify the Jedi order and bring peace to the universe. Instead his wife Mara lies dead at the hands of an unknown assassin, his wayward nephew Jacen has seized control of the Galactic Alliance, and the galaxy has exploded in all-out civil war.

With Luke consumed by grief, Jacen Solo works quickly to consolidate his power and jumpstart his plan to take over the Jedi. Convinced he’s the only one who can save the galaxy, Jacen will do whatever it takes, even ambush his own parents.

With the Rebel confederacy driving deep into the Core to attack Coruscant and the Jedi under siege, Luke must reassert his position. Only he can lead the Jedi through this crisis, but it means solving the toughest problem Luke’s ever faced. Does he fight alongside his nephew Jacen, a tyrant who’s illegally taken over the GA, or does he join the rebels to smash the Galactic Alliance he helped create?

Boba Fett Studio Scale Helmet Replica Preorder

Tuesday, September 4th, 2007

Boba%20Fett%20LE%20Front%2050-small.jpg

Boba Fett’s inception is almost as mysterious as his character. What is known is that the unique Mandalorian armor he wears was designed and then fabricated in England well in advance of the filming of Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back.

Joe Johnson, the production illustrator and designer, began work on Fett’s helmet shortly after ILM relocated from southern to northern California. Lucasfilm archival photo reference shows Joe working on the “hero” helmet, which was later worn by actor Jeremy Bulloch during principal photography. It is likely Joe also prepared a back-up helmet, which resides in the archive, as its paintwork closely matches the scratches and technique of the “hero”.

To create the Master Replicas Boba Fett helmet our engineers laser scanned an original helmet in the archives, perfectly capturing the shape and subtle nuances of the face and dome and output a master pattern from which all our production molds were made.

Over the years the “hero” helmet has sustained additional scuffs and scratches from its many world tours and exhibitions. Using extensive photographic reference, we worked with a talented artist to recreate the “hero” helmet paint scheme as it appeared in 1979 when it first went before cameras at Elstree Studios. There are two versions of this helmet available for purchase:

Boba Fett Ep IV Helmet Signature Edition:

  • Fiberglass Construction
