Mst3k XXIII DVD
Much like the country that spawned it, Mystery Science Theater 3000 is a melting pot. In every imaginable genre, Joel, Mike and their robot pals Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot have seen the promise of cinema mutilated by mediocrity. Nowhere is this highfalutin’ concept more hilariously exemplified than in this 23rd collection of episodes from the beloved cult comedy television series! You want a Western? It’s here, pardner! Space adventure? Look no further. They’ll even throw in a failed TV pilot and a barely coherent science fiction-horror-thriller. All genres are treated with equal disrespect by the luckless crew of the Satellite of Love. They pledge allegiance only to funny, with justice – SoL style – for all.

Star Wars ROTS Count Dooku Stunt Lightsaber Replica
In the Star Wars movies not only do they make multiple copies of the props we see on screen, but different versions, as well. These are divided into two categories commonly referred to in the industry as ‘hero’ and ‘stunt’. Hero props are made for close ups and promotional pictures which require a more beauty shot of the prop. Often they are featured with the main characters while stunt versions are used for the ‘extras’ in the background. Most of the time when a lightsaber is ignited on screen, it is a stunt version of the hilt. These props are usually cast in resin from the hero prop and then painted to look just like the hero prop. They are lighter and easier to wield while filming the exciting lightsaber duels and action scenes. In the case of the stunt lightsabers, there is usually a rod attached to the hilt so that the actors can actually duel and make contact with the blades. These rods are also invaluable reference points for the special effects technicians to later digitally add in the signature glows of the lightsaber blades. This stunt lightsaber is a faithful replica of the hero prop used in the Star Wars movies and comes with a unique lightsaber and plaque stand to display your lightsaber.
