    I thought it might be interesting to see what everyone's favorite piece (or pieces) in their SW collection might be. Mine would either be the lifesize Yoda i won from the Blockbuster contest or my set of the original 12" Kenner dolls.....

    My Celebration III Darth Vader signed by Dave Prowse. And I'm a big poster girl, so my German Episode II Teaser poster and French Return of the Jedi Poster.

    That is an impossible question.

    Some of the things I am most proud of, in no particular order:
    All my C3 stuff: Vaders, toppers, t-shirts, posters, signature cards, autographs including John Knowles, Ian McCaig, Don Peterson, Mary Franklin, Bodie Taylor, Aayla Secura, John Stover and Kenny Baker...
    My two exclusive OB1 mini sabers: '04 Con exclusive "as first built" and C3 exclusive "smoke chrome" E3 version."
    My Bossk focus, including: GG Mini Bust, GG Bust-up, Unleashed, Kubrick, OTC carded and loose, SAGA carded and loose, POTF2 carded and loose, and three vintage loose (only one with gun). Still missing POTF2 12" boxed and loose, carded vintage ESB and ROTJ, vintage bagged (mail away preview), and any variations including foreign cards.
    The OTC Sandcrawler because it is a cool exclusive that I got for a steal from SouthernIsland.com.
    The OTC Falcon because I didn't have a mint Falcon before that and it has cool electronics (just wish they had improved the landing gear and ramp and turret and stuff).
    All the rest of my vehicles, especially the new E3 stuff cause it is so cool and I am so excited about the movie. I opened my ARC-170 and it is awesome!!! Can't wait to get more and more jedi starfighters and droid fighters so I can stage a major dogfight.
    My custom saber hilt that I won in a raffle at Dragon Con.
    Too much else to remember or count...

    My Christopher Lee signature pic [face_love] Though... hopefully he'll be able to attend C4 so I'll get a 'personal' one :)

    My little replica of Dooku's lightsaber hilt :D

    Several Dooku figures (as well as the Unleashed one) ;), several Palpatine ones, Anakin (from AotC and RotS), Bail, and Obi-Wan. Comics out of the ying yang as well as novels :D

    I agree with Otisdodge to much to answer, that is why Im building a 3 1/2 story 1400sq/ft archive to house my collection. But not necesserialy my favorite but I think one of the coolest would be my : EI Wal*Mart 4part red Tin-Plate used in the printing press to make the 4 part sheets for Wal*Mart. I found out there os only 4of these in the world and only 1 of each color. Get it for about $35 found out at CIII it could be worth over $500.

    A Revenge of the Jedi (yes, Jedi) theatre poster that I got in a bunch of star wars stuff I bought that was in a big ol' box at a yard sale for $35.00
    It also had several figures, some books, 2 lunch boxes, some toy vehicles and the twin Retrun of the Jedi bedspread and sheets. That is my favorite (so far)

    Haha Mine would be my Vader w/ Green Saber (the one eric forman has on that '70s show)

    no but in all honestly I have been collecting for about 10 years now, and I have some of the older figures and the originals ones from the '70s, but there is just something about the ROTS figures that makes me like them. My favorite so far would be my Lava Vader, Holo Yoda, and Palps with a blue saber

    Of course I also like the rare Luminara Unduli (sp?) where Hasbro did not put blue tape over the lettering on the side that says she has a robe. Speaking of collectibles and mess ups, can anyone tell me if the clone trooper from AOTC w/o the 4 red dots on his armors is rare? All I had heard was it was a misprint

    I would have to say that my favorite for the first part is my Signature Edition Anakin Skywalker Saber from Master Replicas. My other sabers from them I love as well. My Jedi Costume is my favorite wardrobe though. There's juts somehting you feel when you put on the tunic and the robe. Anybody understand that? Kynstar and JeepGirl you know what I mean. Other than that all of my collection is precious to me because it reflects my childhood. I never really grew up though!
    I can't wait to see what Star Wars has in store for us next! Hey to everybody!

    That IS cool. Is the story any different? Is it any different than the current version of the novel, I mean?

    So did you mean OTC--basic figures from last year--or VOTC--expensive figures from last year released on special card backs in clamshell cases?

    The TRU in North Little Rock as of Saturday had several VOTC ESB Landos and Yodas. I picked up at VOTC Vader and that was the last one they had.
