    What is the most obscure, hard to find, or obscure SW collectable you have or have ever seen?

    Star Wars decapitated Jar Jar head prop

    This is an amazing one of a kind fan made prop. It is the severed head of the lovable Jar Jar Binks. It has a single blaster shot through the middle of the head as well as a torn spinal column and bloody mass hanging out of the bottom. The tongue has an armature wire in it that allows it to be posed in any position. This is a great piece for anyone who is into trooping, costuming, or just plain hates Jar Jar. This is a huge piece it is very close to life size. It is 2 feet from the top of the eyes to the bottom of the spine.

    I have a Brasilian Star Wars spoof comic book featuring the "Turma da Monica" characters, and you have to be both a fan of that comic and star wars to get the jokes. I have yet to meet anyone else who qualifies, and I have never seen anything else like it.

    I also have Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker soap.

    I think Vader stayed too long in the bath. When he took his helmet off, he was all wrinkly

    My 3.75" Admiral Kendall Ozzel, I made myself on card and all. When Mr. Michael Sheard autographed it at IQM I, He told me it was one of the best he had ever seen. This is one of my most treasured memories and one of only two autographed peices I have personalized. He also told me the origins of where Kendall came from.

    Kendall came from the name of the character Michael protrayed in a play in England a few years ago. The name of the character only had one L but the people at SW thought it to be more creative with two Ls. I can't remember the play, but at least ya'll know a little more SW trivia.

    Remember kids, if there is a fire, feel the door to make sure its not hot. If it is, the fire is on the other side of the door, so don't go that way. Head towards a window, and stay low to avoid smoke inhilation.

    Nope. If any wrestler qualifies, it's Hacksaw Jim Duncun.

    There's a lot to be said for a guy who can make a living with an American flag and a 2x4.

    So, then what do you do with life? Rake it? Hoe it? Fertilize it? Ooooooh, yeah, I got it. Dig it, ok.... :D

    Hmmm, as for rare star wars stuff that I have, I have a few pieces that are pretty good. Any of the 12 backs in mint condition are fairly rare, and I have Chewie, R2, and a Death Squad Commander. I have the Revenge of the Jedi movie poster, too. Probably some other things, but thats all I can come up with at the moment.

    Hmmmm . . . rare stuff . . . as for what I've seen, I saw a lot of cool stuff at C2 - missile-firing Boba prototype, carded set of the Droids figures, and just oodles of stuff in the collectibles/toys museums and auctions. As for what I own, I probably wouldn't qualify much of it as rare or hard-to-get (especially with ebay), though I do have a 4-pack of Star Wars soap too! (Vader, Lando, Artoo, Threepio) It makes my curio cabinet smell nice. :) I did manage to get a Mark Hamill autograph before he stopped signing SW stuff and I have an Anthony Daniels autograph on the 1977 copy of People that featured Threepio on the cover.

    Speaking of "dig it!" Has anyone heard Savage's rap song dissin' Hogan? OMG! It'll give you new appreciation for the talents of Gerardo.
