I ordered one but I figured I'd toss this out there for anyone who wants the closest you can get to an EU bookmark. This is a Mara Jade piece given out originally for free at Borders as a promotional for the release of LotF Sacrifice. I think you might enjoy it. Just plugging it because I thought it was cool, I'm not the seller Smile

My latest addition is the mighty Jabba!

Here he is hanging out with some Ewoks. Or should I say: snacks...


He's also pretty big. Just about perfect scale for the 12" figures, new and old.


Nice close up of his beautiful face.

If you don't mind me asking; how much was it? And where did you get it?

Pretty rockin' collection! I don't really collect, but even I'm a tad jealous Smile .

I got Jabba on eBay. It was around $60.

Awesome Jabba, DS!

My partner got this neat C3-PO plastic cookie jar


I got a couple of vintage cardbacks (those pieces of cardboard that the toys are stuck to) for my collection. It's a weird thing because there isn't a huge collectible market for them (I guess people don't want to buy old pieces of paper) so they are kind of hard to come by, but also not very expensive. But it's cool because if you have the toy laying around you can basically have it back the way it was originally packaged for a fraction of the cost of a mint condition sealed one.

I got a King Gorneesh one from the Ewoks animated line for like a dollar, but lost the auction of the toy to go with it. I've been getting destroyed on Ebay lately.

The coolest thing about them are the promotional offers. I got one I needed for a "Free 4-lom figure".



Kenner screwed up and got the names for 4-lom and Zuckuss switched on the toys.

That's a pretty sweet cookie jar.

I've got a neat cardboard pop out of Darth Vader where he's doing the classic finger pointing. I also have a cardboard display for the ROTJ glasses. I took the top part off, so it just shows some scenes from Star Wars. I've got another cardboard display of the Cloud City characters that's kind of cool. Has Fett on it, so it's guaranteed wall space Cool

I gave up auctioning on eBay a while ago. Now I'm automatically on Buy It Now only.

Someone offered me a 1:1 scale Chewbacca cardboard cutout. I was in this store, and the clerk goes, "Don't you want to wake up to that furry face in the morning?" I suppose I should have taken it, but it was so big. Wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. Ha.

this Chewie was a freebie? You could've always taped it to your ceiling until you found a more appropriate location. of course family and/or non-Star Wars fans might not understand that any space is a legit storage location for Star Wars stuff. Wink

Got the SW VHS Trilogy special letterbox edition (that's what they used to call widescreen, for you youngsters).

I've been wanting to get this for years and finally got a good deal on one. The movies are still skrink wrapped, so I don't think I'm going to open them.

Just won a Darth Malgus action figure on eBay, so I'll have that within the week.

Just picked up a Col. Cracken figure. Have a Wedge Antillies coming in the mail.

Nothing spectacular, but cool.

Walmart still has figures for $4.

Here's who I picked up: Cloud-Car Pilot-VC, Padme (AOTC)-VC, Sam Weisal (spl?) AOTC-VC; Mandalorian Guard-TCW.

They still have some battle packs left for $10-$13.

I pick Col. Cracken up for regular price.
