Either my Boba Fett collection or my Sith stuff. I have a Sith symbolic pendant, one of the headbands, and A Vader's Lightsaber hilt from the collection. My friend has created a custom Vergere action figure and a custom Lumiya. I'm kind of impressed by them, but he won't make me any and won't tell me how he made them and won't sell them to me so I'm stuck in my envy.

Don't be stuck in envy, do what any Sith would do, find the knowledge you need and out do the opponent.

And perhaps destroy their means of creating more?

*bows to Caedus_16's ubber sithiness*

Ha! That's a good one. Twisted Evil

As much as I like my Star Wars figures, and even my FX lightsaber, I think my Star Wars reference books are probably my most prized possession in terms of sheer use. My best reference book would probably be the Ultimate Alien Anthology which has lots of pictures and info on the various Star Wars aliens.

Yard sale Very Happy

Believe it or not, the person had one of the plastic kiddy pools full of the vintage Kenner star wars figures, playsets, ships, and vehicles. I said "how much for all of it?" I can't remember what the price was, 50 bucks or less, then I said "I'll take it!"

Mine might be my Mara action figure. It's not expensive I just never thought they'd make one.

I have a limited edition of The Art of Ralph McQuarrie metal card set. The metal cards are gorgeous! It's by far, my most prized possession in terms of SW, besides my books.

Tough call - either the big mil. falcon or my replica Storm Trooper helmet or Ep 6 Luke Skywalker Forcefx saber.

My Kenner version of the Millennium Falcon. Sadly, it's not it very great condition, but I have to put it at the top because it's my only Kenner item that got handed down and that I didn't have to buy off of Ebay.

Also, my 1977 figures are sweet, but getting them online doesn't make me feel as accomplished. I'd rather have had to hunt down each one over the years. But, it was a good deal. Wink

Here's a picture of the Kenner Falcon: http://www.geocities.com/starwarstrader_nz/images/1980_toltoys_millenium_falcon.jpg

Now, the caption for that picture says 1980, but mine says 1977 on the bottom, so I figure the above one is a slightly different version.

Mine is missing the ramp, satellite, gun, top of the cockpit, and most of the stickers. I've been looking for somewhere that might sell these pieces separately so I can fix it up, but nothing so far. Anyone know of a place that would sell that kind of stuff?

That reminds me....I need to pick up a junk IG-88 with a good arm so I can fix my near mint one up. It's the 14" Kenner one. I have Vader whose in good shape. And Chewie too. My old Falcon is also missing a few pieces, but it's almost fittingly so. Very Happy
