    :eek:

    Click the "Star Wars Props" link in the banner at the top of ebay.com


    Well, actually, on closer look the Stormtrooper helmet & the Maul lightsaber are the only 2 things actually used in the movies.

    The models (including the Falcon) are just off-the-shelf model kits, painted up by an ILM modelmaker.

    So I wouldn't get too excited...

    Yeah, I don't have a spare $10,000 to spare, but they'd be pretty neat to have around the house.

    Especially the Vader helmet!

    No problem. I'm used to it by now. ;)

    And yep, the Silmarillion is "J.R.R. Tolkien's tragic, operatic history of the First Age of Middle-Earth, essential background material for serious readers of the classic Lord of the Rings saga."

    Very pertinent now, hey?

    ;)

    I'm surprised with such a name you don't have any 'Tolkien type' quotes and so forth in it.

    I love that LOTR quote in mine - classic

    gotta love Meridoc & Pippin :)

    Well, you can love Tolkien. And then you can *love* Tolkien.

    Have you read any of the other 12 books? the ones edited and compiled by christopher Tolkien? The book of lost tales etc?

    I just finished the Silmarillion and loved it, gives you a better understanding of the origins of the peoples of middle Earth, except the hobbits that is, don't suppose you know where they sprung from?

    Whoops sorry about that, I have a model of anakins podracer that is almost identical to the one offered on auction, in fact its made from the same AMT kit, I think I paid about $15 for it at the warehouse on sale, and I did a damn fine job building it I must say.

    The darth vader helmet is great who wouldn't love that sitting on the coffe table!
